Favourite Face Combination

Today I wanted to share with you my new favourite base along with a brush that I've been using a lot recently. You may have seen that Bourjois brought out a new CC cream with three pigments for different colour corrections. Bourjois is one of my favourite brands for foundations and bases - they literally never go wrong - so I immediately headed over to Boots and picked it up.

I've been using it for a couple of weeks now and I absolutely love it. The colour isn't a perfect match, but it's close enough - I've been mixing it with my L'Oreal True Match foundation that is slightly too light for me and then it's pretty much spot on. When you apply it, it goes on so smoothly and feels very light and airy, and it's also very hydrating which is great as my skin is often dry. I've been applying it with the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush and honestly the two are a perfect match! I find that the brush isn't suited to applying all of my foundations, but with this it works really well. I find the best way to use it is by applying thin layers and slowly building up the coverage, rather than lathering it on all at once. Overall, I'm loving this combination and can definitely see myself using it for a long time.

What's your current favourite foundation/base?

  1. I'm always scared to try CC cream, because BB cream didn't live up to the hype! I really want to try this one after reading your post.

    I'm holding a giveaway on my blog if you're interested. x

  2. I love this one but annoyingly I bought it too pale and so I might have to use the old 3 for 2 to pick up another one. Kat xx
