Recently I was sent the Bourjois Vox Box by Influenster. If you haven't heard of Influenster it's a fab app where you can share make-up and product reviews. This wasn't my first box but there were so many goodies to try so I thought I should definitely share them with you. I have been a fan of Bourjois for quite a while, reasonably priced and good quality, I have a few of their lipsticks and love their blushers, mainly because of the lovely scents. Let me take you through the products and be sure to scroll all the way down to see the make-up look I have created!
First up we have the Heathy Mix Anti-Fatigue Foundation (55 - Dark Beige, £9.99) and Concealer (52 - Medium, £8.99) . This gives a semi radiant finish and has medium coverage. Those of you who know me, know I love a dewy finish to my foundation. This is somewhere in between matte and radiant however not radiant enough for me. Saying that I was still pleasantly surprised by the effect it gave. It was slightly too light for me, however I warmed it up with a coloured powder. For the price I think it is really good value for money and could easily see myself wearing it again. The concealer was just as impressive as the foundation. It is so great to see drug store brands producing fab quality. I still needed to use a colour corrector for my eye bags though.
The Bourjois Little Round Pot Blushers (£6.49) are some of my fave, so I knew I was going to love this. What's great about their blusher's is that they are not very pigmented. I know this sounds confusing, but it really allows you to build up the blusher which allows for a better blend and more natural effect. The brush that comes with it is actually pretty good as the bristles are quite tough, so when I'm in a rush I use it more, as it allows for quicker application. The effect this blusher gave was beautiful.

The gorgeous Xmas Smoky Stories Quad (£7.99) is perfect for Christmas. The eyeshadow quad has everything you need for a full eyeshadow look. Even down to the glitter! I found the products easy to blend and the glitter was so sparkly. I could have got even more of a glittery effect if I had used a glitter glue. The shades have been chosen to compliment one another so make it really easy.
Now the Metallic Lip Creams (£7.99) just blew me away. I couldn't get over how vivid the colours were. They felt so silky and smooth on the lip and can even be toned down by blotting the excess product off to get less of a glossy effect. The colours are just beautiful and I will definitely be wearing over the festive period.

Finally for the Push Up Volume Glamour Mascara (£8.99)! This does exactly what it says, provides you with loads of volume, Personally I like a mascara that does a little more lengthening and less volume but I was really happy with the results I achieved with it. I would happily purchase this again.
Overall I was really happy with all of the products in the box. There was not a product I disliked. I am so happy for the opportunities I get, as it really does allow me to try products I might not have otherwise picked up. I think there are some really fab products in here for the party season ahead and can't wait to get using them. What do you think of the make-up look? I'm totally getting eighties vibes!
