The Muse sobs herself silly daily when she thinks about how Bourjois seems to be slowly yanking itself out of the US. Anyone notice when you visit their site they don’t even have a US portal anymore? Oh my god talk about ruin my day!
At the moment the only place I know you can pick up the line is at Ulta, outside of that it’s kinda difficult to locate. Lucky enough I have a few good friends in England who kindly snag me my Bourjois Paris.
Today I’m reviewing Bourjois Paris Mineral Matte Foundation. I got alot of e-mail about this one as many people were quite curious about it.
Take the jump for the review!

Count me all kinds of silly but I’ve indulged in the new Bourjois Paris Mineral Matte Foundation.
It’s getting cold now and my skin is getting dry, flaky, and…and…woe and drama people, woe and drama. So yea what the hell I need a matte foundation for is beyond me but you know the Muse when she gets something in her head as a want she dives right in.
Jump ahead to hear the word on the new Bourjois Paris Mineral Matte Foundation.
This morning the Muse is raking her brain trying to remember the first time she tried Bourjois Paris Corps Mascara. Gosh, it had to be ten years ago at least. Do you guys remember it? It was a dual mascara with a primer on one side and a mascara on the other. Actually at the time the entire idea and design was unique to anything anyone had out on the market.
Reason I’m taking my little trip down memory lane today is because I’ve been test driving the brand new Bourjois Paris Corps de Theatre 2 in 1 Mascara and loving all over it. For the longest time Bourjois was my go to brand for great mascara and it’s nice to see them release something new.
Jump ahead to hear my review.
The Irish Beauty Blog girls have the scoop on the new Bourjois Launch Makeup Removers and Cleansers that release this Fall in the UK. Gawd, I hate that we don’t get any of the good stuff here!
Here’s the deets:
Bourjois Paris Fresh Cleansing Milk (suitable for dry)
Bourjois Paris Vitamin Enriched Toner
Bourjois Paris Express Eye Makeup Remover (two-phase formula to remove all types of eye makeup)
Bourjois Paris Foaming Cleansing Cream (suitable for dry)
Bourjois Paris Express Cleansing Wipes
The Muse thinks she needs it all. I guess I’ll have to be hunting down a clever Brit to snag me some of the goods upon release.
Now if we could only tempt Bourjois back to US waters…..
It took the Muse a fair while before she perfected the art of a smoky eye. I’m using the term art loosely as I’m no expert at creating a good smoky eye look. One thing I have discovered is that “colored” smoky eyes are the most flattering of all. One of my favorite smoky looks is created using various shades of greens, this makes my big, buggy eyes fairly pop. Some of my best colored smoky eyes were created using KATE Glamtrick Palettes
. These palettes truly make it easy and simple to create a killer smoky eye look with graduating colors that are a snap to blend and use.
Speaking of colored smoky eyes and easy application Bourjois Paris has a brand new line of Smoky Eye Palettes made up of three beautiful shades for creating dramatic, colorful smoky looks. Likey!
Check ‘em after the jump!
First off allow me to say I haven’t been this excited about cosmetics in a very long time. Being exposed to makeup daily sometimes takes the joy out of the haul. When I first laid my eyes on the new Bourjois Paris Smoked Eyes Pallete my heart did so begin to pound in that happy, joyful way when new makeup presents itself to me. These palettes are truly exciting for me.
These new palettes are available right now in Asia and I’m sure will be launched Euro wise shortly. Sadly, the Bourjois Paris USA site no longer loads which leads me to believe they may finally being pulling out of our country but that’s pure speculation on my part as the line is still sold in Ulta.
The palettes look like they are made up of three baked shadows in graduating colors for creating an intense dramatic colored smoky look. I can’t begin to tell you how much I am loving the looks of these. They are available in 8 shades and are 2,100 yen each. The standard black and gray is available of course but they also have a rosy smoky look, a teal smoky look, green, brown, and many more combinations.
Without further commentary from me have a peek at the palettes for yourself below!
I haven’t wanted to haul an entire collection in a long time but I must say each color absolutely screams at me. I can so see myself getting six or all eight of these. The simplicity and ease of use (three shades only) make it a winner for me plus they look richly pigmented. If they apply and work as well as they look in the palette count this Muse a happy girl.
As soon as I track them down I’ll be reviewing.
What do you think?
Are you a traditional black and gray smoky girl?
Or do you love a colored smoky look?
