It’s been a hectic week and haven’t managed to write about anything at all
Plagued by the fact that network was down for a couple of days, all I could do was to edit photos yet unable to upload them anywhere
Realised that I haven’t posted on make up for ages!
Here’s Bourjois for you! The French label that came in a secretive parcel
Don’t we all love unboxing presents??
Bourjois unveiled its AQUA LAQUE series, a hybrid lipstick at O’ Comptoir, a modern French creperie & bar in the heart of Boat Quay (Circular Road) on 5th May 2015.
A coast of RED lippies were presented for testing
Having a tanned complexion doesn’t make it easy for me to have red lips
In fact, it’s almost impossible
I can only go for orange based lippie and have to keep my base make up really fair in order to look classy
Before I go ahead to show you the swatches of the Bourjois products,
the postcard above illustrated it all!
Aptly designed, the watercolor-ed postcard itemised every single detail of what’s in the box!
Just like a little girl, I excitedly opened up everything and checked out the color tones
The compact Bourjois Nude Smoky Eyeshadow Trio in 20 Sable Snow
The 3 most basic shades you should have
For a quickie eye make up, a good mix of these shades will do you wonders!
The darker shade on the left emphasizes the contour of your eyes
The metallic reflective shade in the middle goes on to illuminate and highlight
The medium shade on the right blends the 2 other shades, keeping the eye make up in checks

Bourjois Aqua Laque Hybrid Lipsticks
Combining a high concentration of water and Nymphea extract which has great moisturising ability (10 hours), it contains all the elements necessary to achieve a light and extremely refreshing texture.
Whether to look at or to touch, its liquid texture is so smooth and fine that you’ll forget you’re even wearing lipstick.
Aqua Laque 07 Fuchsia Perche
Mr Fuchsia decided to abandon a little blue for a more wearable look.
Always bright and pigmented, it’s beyond reproach.
Aqua Laque 04 Viens Si Tu Roses
Not really pink or red, it’s almost a raspberry colour.
A shade inspired by the colour of the lips with just enough pigment to paint a charming smile…
Try it if you dare
On the left, Aqua Laque 07
On the right, Aqua Laque 04
Having a waterproof mascara is extremely important to me
The tough removal process is never a consideration
The sustainability is the biggest factor!
I have only seen a handful of girlfriends still relying on mascaras like me (which I consider myself living in the dinosaur age of make up)
Falsies just never befriended me, hence mascaras are here to stay!

In 1863, Bourjois was born on the great boulevards of Paris in the theatre district, at a time when France was the world’s second leading economic power. The actor Joseph-Albert Ponsin was the company’s first creator; he prepared makeup and perfumes for actors and actresses in the comfort of his own home. In 1868, Ponsin entrusted his entire activity to Alexandre-Napoléon Bourjois.
The company blossomed in the hands of Monsieur Bourjois, who made it internationally known.
The first creations were waxy makeup sticks in many colours, with amusing names like Jealous or Lovesick, specially created for theatre, by Joseph-Albert Ponsin, a genial visionary, part actor and a great cosmetologist.
His cosmetic palette broadened rapidly; the refinement and variety of his makeup brought success that extended beyond the circle of actors and actresses. His “Supplier for the Theatre” title on the makeup boxes gave way to a new tagline: “Special Manufacturer of Products for Feminine Beauty”.
Amongst others, Bourjois invented the Coup de Théâtre mascara, the first double-ended mascara and Suivez Mon Regard, a loose powder eyeshadow in a clever box that delivers the right amount of powder onto the built-in brush.
Ingenious products that make beautiful accessories : each product is carefully designed to make them easy to use and a pleasure to carry in your handbag!
