Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation Review

I picked up these foundations having heard good things so decided I’d try it out myself.

I chose No.53 & No.54 as I wasn’t sure which one was best as I was tanned at the time of purchasing them. At the time Boots had a special offer two for €13 which was a lovely surprise when I was paying at the till. 

This anti-Fatigue foundation claims to instantly erase signs of fatigue for a flawless finish giving a fresh and healthy looking complexion lasting up to 16 hours with the aid of Vitamins C,E and B5.

My Verdict:

I have been using this for 2 weeks and have found its good on my dry skin as it didn’t cling to dry areas but coverage was not sufficient so I used some of my trusty concealer to conceal under my eyes and on any blemishes. 

The No.54 colour was perfect when I was wearing my false tan and it blends really easily. I apply my foundation with my hands and always set my foundation with powder to set it and get the whole day from it as I don’t have time to touch up my foundation. 

Overall I was happy with this foundation and would recommend it as a cheaper alternative to high end brands especially good for budget and great if you prefer to keep your more expensive cosmetics for the weekend. 

Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation RRP €13.99 but Boots have their 3 for 2 on Bourjois products at the moment. 

Thanks for popping by 🌟❤️🌟

Grey Spring/Summer Boots

I’m loving these little boots I picked up in Penneys/Primark for €17. 

I’ve been looking for a grey pair and these are just the right heel height for daytime running around. 
I got mine in Penneys Mullingar last week! 

Only a quick little fashion fix post but I hope you liked ❤️💋🌟  And don’t forget to please Follow 🌟

Review: Boots Botanics 

A few months ago I saw these in Boots and decided to give them a go. After all I loved the Botanics All Bright Radiance Balm.   

I was really disappointed with these. I used them for two weeks and I had a break out , lots of spots and they just didn’t agree with my skin at all. So I’ve given them to my mum to try. 

At least they were reasonably priced and I’ve got my skin back to normal now. 

Courtney Smith International Fashion Stylist and her make up favourites.

coco1Courtney Smith is a sought after fashion stylist, columnist, Fashion TV Expert and Presenter who regularly appears on Xpose on Tv3 has given me an exclusive insight into her make up bag and secrets of her flawless skin.

What skin care regime do you use morning & evening?

I use Kiehl’s – I am a big fan. I use the midnight elixir oil at night (sparingly) and I use the Rose Artica lightweight cream daytime.

I don’t have a strict regime but I always take all my makeup off every night and try get a facial once every 6 weeks (its all I can squeeze in time wise I’m sure it should be more often than that!)

Do you use moisturise? If so what do you use?

As above on my face. I use a fab body oil from Sanctuary that you can get in boots on my skin otherwise.

Do you have a must have skin care item?

Probably the Rose Artica cream from Kiehl’s – my skin has never felt better.

What is your favourite beauty treatment?

Decleor facial in Glam beauty salon in Swords – I leave with a brand new face!

Favourite foundation?

Revlon Photoready – every time! It creates a flawless finish.

Favourite make up brand?

Varies depending on the item and product – I have no brand loyalties.

Can’t live without?

The liner marker pen by Bourjois

Love product?

Mac Bronzer powders

Leave product?

Blusher… the powder ones always break so half the time I use my lipstick as a cream blusher instead.

If you had €200 what skin care or make up would you purchase?

All the Kiehl’s products

Does make up change how you feel about yourself?

Not particularly; I feel as confident and empowered with no makeup on but I think there is a time and place for both bare face and made up face. I would never go to a meeting with no makeup on, but then again I would never go the the beach with a face of makeup either.

And lastly what’s your favourite make up look?

My personal preference is just a great base; glowing skin, nicely defined brows and some subtle highlighting.

The rest that follows varies from the bold lip, to a smoky eye – depends on my mood!



Real Techniques Make up Brushes

Great quality Make up Brushes are vital when it comes to applying make up. It’s the difference between shedding hairs on your models faces or scratchy harshness from cheap bad quality brushes. I have a vast array of brushes in my kit from Mac Cosmetics, Smashbox and Shu Eumura and have just had the opportunity to try these beauties from Sam Chapman’s Real Techniques range which are available on line or in Boots stores.


The softness, bristle quality and durability is so great even after constant washing and cleaning they still look brand new.

Clients have mentioned how lovely the brushes feel against their skin and I’ve had emails asking about them.
