Bourjois Paris | Timeless Elegance Make-up Kit | Overeview

I love shopping at this time of year, picking and choosing what friends and family would like for Christmas and making a mental wish list of what I will be watching out for in the January sales! I was shopping in Boots last week and couldn't help but have a quick wonder over to the make up counters and I saw that Bourjois Paris had an offer on. If you spent over £15 across the brand you could pick up a free box set containing three full sized products and one miniature. I am such a sucker for a bargain especially when it comes to free make up so I got perusing straight away! There were four products included in the Timeless Elegance Make-up Kit which can help to achieve a flawless wintery look:
Smokey Eyes Trio Eyeshadow in Gris Dandy
Volume Glamour Max Holidays Mascara in Black
So Laque Ultra Shine Nail Enamel in Beige Glamour
Rouge Edition Lipstick in Beige Trench
I am in love with each and every one! I even have my nails painted in Beige Glamour as I type! I think that the brand Bourjois sits almost on a par with Benefit make-up in terms of quality and packaging. It has a lovely girly feel to all of its products which are all marketed perfectly. It is not a brand that I have used a lot in the past but I am so pleased to have a few more of their products added to my collection. In order to receive this free gift I bought a foundation and an eyeliner. I have read reviews that say their foundation is similar to that of Benefit's Hello Flawless range and so I thought I would give it a go as a cheaper alternative. I will let you know how I get on and do a full review in the new year. The Beige Trench lipstick is also a winner in my mind, reminding me very much of Mac's Brave. It has a silkier feel to that of Mac, however this is a positive to me as a suffer from quite dry lips and often need to apply some sort of balm before lipstick to prevent chapped lips. I always love having miniature mascaras as they are great to take away on holiday or weekend getaways. They are also a good way to try out different brands and styles without the commitment of  full sized product. I am a big fan of a smokey eye, and although I usually opt for more purples and browns, this Gris Dandy will work really well for a dramatic look or for when I apply false lashes. All in all, I am really happy with my stumble upon my new make up purchases!
