I think you’d say about the Bourjois Swimming Cool Collection that it’s about colour nuance rather than blazing, full on shades. Putting that in context with Parisian Summer which focusses on a warm glow complexion it works so well for fresh, rather than intense spring and summer looks. The Sweet Kiss Glosses are colour whispers on the lips – light feeling, transluscent and shiny. If you’re afraid of red, this is the way to do it with Carton Rouge (above) because it gives you red in a low key way. The downside is that they’re not long lasting, so you need to be okay with topping up (I am – I don’t mind it at all).Bourjois Swimming Cool Collection
Sweet Kiss has followed the trend for oil-based lip products – there’s a slick of vegetable oil in these that gives lips a soft, conditioned feel. They’re £7.99 each. The shades above from bottom to top are: Sandsation, Rose Qui Peut, Incognirose and As De Pink.Bourjois Aqua Blush
The Aqua Blush from the Bourjois Swimming Cool Collection has stolen my heart – they’re exactly the kind of blush I love to use; super-light in pigment, extremely blendable and cool feeling on the skin. I’ve been using them with a kabuki to give a wash of colour that’s completely seamless on the complexion. I have found that you need to build the colour though – start with a small amount and keep brushing on a little more until you have that ‘flush’.
The shades are: Berry Nice, Pink Twice, Inge-Nude and Cocoricorail. They’re all colours that sit naturally but give a pop of freshness. I’m obsessed with these – on my tone, which is light olive, I can wear all four colours. There’s a 12 hour last claim on these which on me didn’t work for that long, but they’re well worth £8.99 of anyone’s money! The collection is available from June.
