Bourjois 'Wish You Were Here' Sets
I'm an absolute sucker for beauty products in nice packaging, and that's why I'm all excited about these limited edition 'Wish You Were Here' sets from Bourjois. One of the best things about Bourjois is that it's cheaper in the UK than it is in the US (though it's even cheaper in France). Unfortunately, these sets are exclusive to Sephora, which no longer exists over here, and doesn't ship internationally. Sod's law, eh! Still, there's always Access USA,weekend mini breaks to New York or trips to Boots to buy the separate items without the pretty tin (but where's the fun in that?).
Each $28 tin contains three complimentary eyeshadow colours, a blusher and a lipstick, as well as the means to apply them. First up come two sets named after chic French cities. Paris (left) is a collection of pretty pinks and Bordeaux(right) gives a glow with brownish plums. The pinks are great for fair skinned girls with blonde hair and light eyes, while the darker set will flatter darker ladies.
Going a little further afield are Tahiti(left) which combines what are apparently green eyeshadows (they look grey to me) with a classic pink/red lippy and a mid pink blusher. This one is great for a more sultry, evening look and will suit most skintones. Finally, there's St. Tropez, which it won't surprise you to know is the bronze collection, which is great for that 'I've just been on holiday' glow.
