A few of the Bourjois Paris International portals have been updated including the Japanese one with a brand new Lip Creme entitled So Delicate.
Bourjois Paris So Delicate will be available in six shades and is a gentle cream formula that glides onto lips like a lipstick leaving behind a matte pigmented finish for supposedly eight hours of wear.
Bourjois Paris So Delicate is available now in Japan, Russia, the Nederlands, and France. It should arrive shortly in the UK I’m sure.
Currently the price is set at 2,000 yen, I suspect it’ll be slightly cheaper in the UK but not by much.
It looks quite interesting and it’s something I definitely want to try.
What do you think?

The Bourjois Paris Nederlands portal
has been updated with a brand new lipstick entitled Bourjois Paris Sweet Kiss Lipstick.
Now this is something to get excited about. I generally love Bourjois Paris lipsticks and I was quite excited to see them release a moisturizing lipstick. From the photo it looks rather interesting!
The site claims it contains all sorts of oils to leave lips with a moisturized, pigmented pout and also has a new click, slide up packaging design. Bourjois Paris Sweet Kiss Lipstick is available now in the Netherlands and should follow along with updates to the other portals. Whether we’ll see it in the US remains to be seen however a majority of the newest releases from Bourjois can purchased from Ulta
since Sephora no longer carries the line.
As soon as I can get my hands on these I’ll definately be reviewing for you!

The thing about Bourjois Paris Liner Effect Mascara is that you need a doctrine in brain surgery to apply it correctly.
Move over people! McDreamy will now show us the proper way to use Bourjois Paris Liner Effect Mascara! He’s the brain surgeon around here after all.
After the initial steep learning curve of teaching myself to apply the newest Bourjois Paris mascara I have to say I’m quite happy and I like it alot! The mascara has a dual sided wand which has longer plastic bristles on one end and shorter on the other. In order to apply correctly I find that swiping on the mascara with the short bristles first and brushing through with the longer bristles creates beautifully long, full lashes.
My first use with the mascara was a hot mess which basically left me with brutally clumped up lashes, mascara on my lids and highbrow, and just an utter and complete mess. Normally at this point I’d have probably shoved it away and decided it was trash but for some reason I was compelled to try again and much to my delight I was successful at creating a rather great look and my lashes were looking quite awesome!
The mascara promises to give a finish to lashes so it appears as if you applied liner to your eyes however I honesty didn’t notice much of a difference in this aspect. With proper application you will have plenty of volume, nice, plump lashes, and a gorgeous full look. I don’t recommend the mascara for those of you with shorter, stubbier lashes as I think it would present major clumping woes however if your lashes are nice and straight this will work at creating volume as well as nice curl.
I liked this one alot and I do Muse Approved it for purchase however it does take a bit before learning the correct way to apply so don’t give up on it right away and shove it off as trash! The Muse felt the same but ended up loving it later!

I’m somewhat obsessed with Bourjois Paris foundations so when I seen the new Bourjois Paris Brush Foundation aka Bourjois Paris Fond de Teint Pinceau I knew I must haves it immediately. Lucky for the Muse her kindly friend from across the pond, Lauren, volunteered her time to nab me one!
In the vein of Too Faced Magic Wand Illuminating Foundation, Bourjois Paris Brush Foundation is pretty much the same concept with a cheaper price tag! At around $15 USD or so the price can’t be beat for the quality of the product however I do like the Too Faced version a tiny bit more for one main reason which I’ll explain shortly.
The foundation comes in a large click style pen with a brush on one end and a depressor on the other. Click a few times and foundation will flow freely into the brush allowing you to brush on your foundation and blend into place. I find the brush is useless (same with the Too Faced one!) for blending so I normally just swipe where I need foundation and blend with clean fingers. The brush isn’t the greatest quality in the world and a tad bit scratchy however after it’s wet with the foundation the scratchiness does go away and it feels alot smoother and softer on the skin! Now considering you probably tote powder around with you but not liquid foundation this is a nice little item to have as it’s quite portable without any mess! If you need a bit of touch up during the day whip out and go to town! However, since the brush doesn’t do a fab job of blending you may not feel it’s completely portable friendly!
The formula is a good deal more watery in consistency when compared to the Too Faced version however this didn’t bother me to much as it blends beautifully well and gives light coverage . I don’t particularly recommend this if you have alot to cover up as coverage is light to medium. I personally don’t use a whole lot of foundation on my face anyway so one click is enough for me to smooth around and create a good working canvas for my other makeup.
Now the foundation has all but one fault with it. It covers nicely and gives a good fresh look to any dullness that’s residing on my face. I have the lightest color selection which is 31 Beige and this suits me well as it lightens and brightens up my face beautifully. Now these are the strong points of the product however after application of the foundation I get a powder-like dry down which mattifies my face a bit too much. Right now my face is already on overkill dryness and this manages to make my face feel tight. Also it pretty much shouts foundation! As soon as I apply and blend it casts a certain glow to my face that indeed says I’m “made up”. I’m chalking this effect up to the fact that my skin is so dry right now.
The bad news is I probably can’t use this at the moment however I do look forward to retrying it in the Summer when my skin is oily. Perhaps then I’ll be quite happy with it. I did feel that the Too Faced version was far more richer, moisturizing, and thicker plus my skin seemed to soak all that goodness up and create a flawless and natural look.
Further news on the up side of things……
I also happened to enjoy how very fresh smelling this is! The foundation has a rather nice fresh scent which actually lingers around for a while after application. Quite nice as I kinda like my cosmetics to smell good.
All in all I think it’s not bad at all for the price and will be a great light foundation for Summer-wear however my skin no likey at the moment. I’m not Muse Approving it for purchase since I’m unsure how it’ll work in the warmer weather so maybe expect another look at this when the Summer sets in!
On a side note Bourjois Paris Brush Foundation is not yet available in the US and I can’t honestly say when it’ll be available if ever. If you’d like to try it I do recommend visiting MUA or your makeup forum of choice and asking a friendly Brit for a CP.
Anyone tried Bourjois Brush Foundation yet?

Bourjois Paris Holiday Collection 2008
Bourjois Paris Pressed Powder Review
Bourjois Paris Volume Clubbing Mascara Review
Bourjois Paris Shimmer Shine Liquid Eye Shadow Review
The Bourjois Paris Japanese portal has been updated with the Holiday Collection which will be debuting on November 27th.
I think the collection is being released within Europe and Asia obviously but not within the US sadly.
It includes three shades of Bourjois Paris Liner Glitter Fizz, four shades of Bourjois Paris Eye shadows which appear to have a a healthy dose of shimmer in the formula, and a gorgeous pendant with lip gloss.
OooOoooo pretty shimmers!
The liners are 1,575 yen each, the shadows are 1,990 yen each, and the gloss pendant is 2,625 yen. The prices are considerably higher and I’m guessing you’ll find these in your local Boots (if you live across the pond that is) for a tiny bit less.
The entire line up looks lovely and I think I’d like to try out a liner, some of the shadows, and of course I want the pendant! Hopefully I’ll have a review of the new items shortly! I’ll also be bringing you a review of the new Bourjois Paris Liner Effect Mascara and the Bourjois Paris New Brush Foundation shortly!
What do you think of the new Bourjois Paris Holiday Collection 2008?
Wish it was making an appearance with the US?
