|Bourjois 10 Hr Sleep Effect Foundation 72 Rose Clair & Ecotools brush.|
Long time no post, forgive me, I had a rather hectic August somehow and I bought some stuff for review but never got around to actually posting. This is not one of those things, but rather something I just got in the mail the other day.
I've been addicted to British Beauty Blogs (the dreaded triple B) lately and had seen Bourjois mentioned a lot. The lovely Lisa Eldridge had also used this foundation in one of her videos, and I, being on the hunt for a new foundation, was intrigued and went off to ebay to find it...
Only to totally chicken out. I did that on and off for about a month. Reviews of it seemed hard to find, and I wasn't sure. Would the shade I was eyeing up match? Would it be ok?
Thankfully, my bravery has paid off, as so far I think I like this foundation quite nicely. The girl at my local MAC counter recently matched me as an NW15 so I went with Rose Clair, the second shade in this line-up. It's a sheerer foundation, so it's more forgiving in terms of shade matching.

Hopefully with this up my sleeve I'll at least look awake for the 8:30am shifts I have coming my way!
Where to buy: price varies, mine was about $14 plus S&H from ebay. Also available at drugstores for French & lucky UK kids across the pond; also sold on Amazon by Bourjois & other sellers, but shipping can be a downer; read full range of shades & the full product info here at the Bourjois website.
