Bourjois Paris Mineral Matte Foundation

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.

It looked all creamy and lush that I couldn’t resist but as I said I really don’t need a matte foundation now.

This is brand new from Bourjois and comes with a flat brush for blending into skin. It’s available in four shades and has a mineral formula which is supposedly very light wearing and dries down to a powdery matte finish.

Me? I’m just a sucker for anything Bourjois puts out.

It’s available within Europe at the moment, I got mine from the UK to be exact. I’m ever hopeful that Ulta will update it’s Bourjois offerings and start carrying this among the other new delightful goodies coming out from the brand.

Review coming shortly.

What do you think?

Bourjois Paris fan?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Muse!! This looks great…I want it too! I love the idea of mousse-to- powder. New for me! My t-zone is super oily, but other parts of my face are really dry…so, I try everything I can 🙂

    Tried Bourjois once, a liquid eyeliner in purple. The applicator was awfully thin and bogged down. I had to wait for ages before it was dry, or it would mess up my whole eyelid arrangement. Boy, do I hate this brand lol
    Let us know how this foundation effectively works!

      I’ll def let you know Isabella, sorry to hear about the woe with the eyeliner 🙁 that stinks! I’m a big lover of the brand but never tried the liquid liner 🙂

    I was looking to purchase the new ‘bourjois mineral matte mousse foundation/brush’ but cannot source it anywere for sale, is there anyway you could update me on any stores that have on the shelf?
    Thank You

      Boots should have it or Superdrug where in the UK are you? I’d try both locations and ASOS also gets plenty of Bourjois in stock although I haven’t seen this as of yet 😀 Hope this helps.

    I live in the uk Norfolk to be precise but i cannot find anywhere that sells this product where on earth stocks it? ve tried both superdrug and boots.

    • the Muse

      hi leanne.

      sadly not a clue, I’m in the US. I believe my friend got it in a Manchester Boots. Also did you check Boots online? As they are already carrying the smoky eye kits.

      Hope this helps!?
