The Bourjois Happy Light Collection is the most recent in a string of successful releases for the brand, and as a fan of their existing products - I had to get my hands on these as soon as they were out. Overall I am impressed.
Firstly and ever so slightly negatively - the Matt Serum Primer. It's not the best primer I've ever used but it gets the job done to a certain extent. I use this on my T-zone and in the corners of my nose, and while it aids smooth application of the foundation, it doesn't stay matte for very long. I wouldn't even consider myself particularly oily in these areas but I can't make it past a few hours without the shine making it's way through.
On to the foundation. I absolutely love this foundation. It's a light texture and I really like this as it isn't heavy on the skin and it feels like it can "breathe" aka it's not like smearing dirt on your face. It gives a light/medium coverage. It's buildable where you need it to be without getting all gross and cakey. Always a positive. It's also really luminising without being overly shiny, which is my biggest fear having an oily T-zone. I don't feel like my skin is doing this foundation justice as it's went into panic mode. My face is chapped (yes, I didn't know that could happen either) so I'm trying desperately to exfoliate the dry bits away and give it as much moisture as possible without aggravating the oiliness or causing a breakout - don't you just love what the winter weather does to your skin? Anywhoo - when my skin isn't playing silly buggers this leaves a super smooth refined finish.
The Happy Light Concealer, has become a fast favourite. It's the perfect texture and colour to hide those under eye circles. I'm not sure how it creases on every body else but I have naturally quite "creasy" eyes. I find that if I apply this then immediately apply a dusting of powder this stays airbrushed and flawless looking. Considering I have pretty bad dark circles I'm good with that. This is also really good on blemishes as the coverage is fantastic.
I also realised when I was cropping my picture, that the products are facing the French way - don't worry there's also product information in English - I just didn't even notice for the photo.
