I was lucky enough to attend the Bourjois #24hrPartyReady event last week to showcase their new releases for Winter 2014. The launch was held in a posh swanky London Hotel ( too posh for me anyway), which housed a evening full of glitz and glam - and that was just the makeup! Cocktails were following along with nail and make up stations where we could all try the new products on offer - there was even a hair station with the latest GHD curlers, so even our barnetts could be spruced and titillated to make sure we were made party ready.
Most of the new releases should be available in stores now, all ready for the up coming party seasons and see the arrival of new shades to their existing lines as well as brand new products to coax us into looking and feeling #24hrpartyready
One Second Nail Polish* Top 'Grey to meet you' (new shade) Middle 'Rouge in Style' Bottom 'Glitterizer' (new shade)
I'm already a huge fan of the One Second Nail Polish with the "fan effect" brush which makes applying polish a breeze, perfectly fanning out and covering the nail bed in a seamless motion. The new shade 'Grey to meet you' is my favourite a muted slate grey that I think is stunning and can be glammed up with the addition of the glitter shade ('Glitterizer') also new to the collection.
Smokey Stories Palette* L-R 'Rock this Khaki', 'Good Nude', 'Grey and Night' and 'Over Rose'
No makeup look would be complete without eye shadow and Bourjois have bought out 8 new quads, all in smokey pre-coordinated shades. All the shadows are a cream-powder texture with a primer built in to intensify the colour and improve the longevity. The palettes are made all the more glam with the addition of 'pop' shade containing concentrated faceted glitter, which will spice up any look!
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet* in 'Hot Pepper' and 'Happy Nude Year' (new shade)
The rouge edition velvets are easily one of the nicest matte formulas around, leaving the lips feeling soft and uber matt. The latest release 'Happy Nude Year' (love the name!) fills the gap in the market where the Rouge Velvets are concerned. They have some a-mazing bright shades but were lacking in nudes I felt and this the perfect rose, peachy shade to fill the void.
Colour Edition 24H Eye Shadow* in ' Flocon d'or' and 'Marron Givre'. Volume 1 Second Ultra Black Mascara* and MEGA Liner in 'Ultra Black'*
Lastly and by no means least is the arrival of two new Colour Edition Eye Shadows. 'Flocon d'or' a frosty off white shade that will be perfect as a highlight or base. 'Marron Givre' is a warm chocolate brown with a hint of sparkle, perfect for the party season and a change up from the traditional black smokey eye.
To finish off the make up look you have the new Volume 1 Second Mascara in 'Ultra Black' and the MEGA Liner in 'Ultra Black'. These are both (as the names suggest) highly pigmented and are meant to last up to 24 hours, which will definitely see you through the party and into the next day!
