Bourjois Summer Set Free Gift
As you guys know, I'm a sucker for a free gift so when I saw the Bourjois Summer Set gift, I just jumped at the chance to get my hands on this. All you need to do is spend £12 on Bourjois products to get this beautiful little gift worth £26!
I've always been loyal to the Rimmel Stay Matte powder, but I thought what a great opportunity to try something else. I picked up the Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder. I picked up the lightest shade Vanille. I've been using this everyday for the past week and it shapes up pretty well when compared to Stay Matte. It instantly mattes my makeup and gets rid of any shiny patches, I do have to re apply during a busy day but I think that's pretty normal for me. I would love a translucent shade in this.
The next thing I bought to get my hands on this cute little gift was the Rose d'Or Blush. When I think of Bourjois, these little blushers always spring to my mind, I think one of these blushers may have been one of my first ever makeup purchases as a young girl! These little pots were the original baked blush! Rose d'Or is a beautiful bright pink with a golden shimmer running through it. This is perfect this time of year to add a bit of colour to my look. The texture is lovely and soft and the pigmentation is perfect to add a natural coverage or a brighter finish. The only thing I'm not a fan of is the scent - yes this blusher is iconic and has been around for 150 years, but it doesn't have to smell 150 years old! It has the classic "old granny" rose scent.

Onto the Summer Set Free Gift! This gift contains three full size products - what a bargain!
The first product I was so excited to try was the Rouge Edition Velvet in Nude-ist. On first application I loved the formula, this is one of those really lovely creamy matte liquid lipsticks, with no drying in site - I'm a sucker for these velvet/matte formulas! The shade is a gorgeous dark pink nude, perfect to add something to your everyday look. I've been very impressed with Nude-ist, I'm for sure going to be adding more to my collection!
Something I'm always excited to try is a mascara. The Bourjois Volume Reveal Adjustable promises to give you volumous unclumpy lashes all day long no matter how many times you re apply. I can't say I'm the type to re apply my mascara through the day, but I do like to pile it on in the morning. I didn't notice any clumping, just long volumous lashes. I'm usually very loyal to my Maybelline Lash Sensational or Too Faced Better Than Sex and this hasn't got me straying for too long. I think it's a great mascara and I will use it all up, but for me there's no wow factor for me to buy it again - a great free gift though!
Lastly we have the Brow Duo Sculpt! This two in one brow pencil helps fill and define your brows with one end and highlight and sculpt with the other. I love the idea of being able to highlight your underbrow to create a perfectly defined look. I think this pencil worked great but I do find a retractile pencil usually gives a sharper and neater finish. I also love a brow pencil with a brush, but I can't expect Bourjois to bring out a brow pencil with three ends now can I!? Overall this pencil is great and comes with a lovely pink champagne highlighter that is perfect for your under brow - I'm just a bit set in my ways!

I've loved trying out some products from Bourjois and I can't deny that this is amazing value! Get your hands on the Bourjois Summer Set Free Gift now at Boots beauties!
