Bourjois #24HRPartyReady Event

A week or so ago, I got to attend the Bourjois 24hr Party Ready Event which was put together to show us some of their new releases in time for Christmas, along with Bourjois, GHD were going to be joining them to introduce us to some of their new tools - this excited me quite alot. Before the event, I got to meet up with Jenni, Danielle, Louise and Louise's friend Chelsey in Leicester Square for a quick drink before we made our way to the event which was being held at the St Martin Lane Hotel which is stunning inside and is the kind of hotel that makes me want to see what the rooms are like because the foyer is so amazing!

Once we located the room we were to go too, the first thing I was greeted with was a choice of cocktail (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and then given an introduction as to what I could expect to see in the room as well as tasting one or two lovely canapes!

The first I went too was the GHD section, there wasn't much of a queue and I was introduced to the lovely Chris who talked me through some of the appliances I could see in front of me (it was so hard not to fill my handbag when he wasn't looking) and then asked which one I would like to try, so for a change, I opted for curly hair - all of this will come in a post on its own, for the meantime it is back to Bourjois!

The one product that stood out to me was the eye shadow palettes which are absolutely stunning, especially when you can see them all lined up next to one another





Thankfully we had some lovely ladies from Bourjois on hand to show us these Smoky Stories Quads, how to use them and how to get the best out of them. I have to admit that I absolutely loved them all, they are just stunning and can be used as a palette on their own or you can mix and match which to me is brilliant. There are different 8 shades to choose from and each palette has 3 different shades and a top coat shadow with highly concentrated glitter. however what is more amazing is that the lovely cream-powder texture has an integrated base shadow primer so you don't have to use anything else with them to keep them lasting all night.  When asked if i had a favourite palette, I had to admit I couldn't choose one from another, they are all amazing, especially the rose gold one!

Next up came the new releases of the Rouge Edition Velvet lipsticks which look something like this




Rouge Edition Velvet has a new shade which is Shade 09 Happy New Year and I have to say is pretty stunning and such a lovely shade to wear. It is matte, lightweight finish and makes your lips feel really moisturised. Unlike other products I have tried, the velvet feel with these products is quite natural, it doesn't feel a though you have stuck velvet to your lips, the colour is also quite stubborn, once it is applied there is no moving it until the time comes for you to use your make-up remover to wipe it off. Other shades you will find within this range are 07 Nude-ist and 01 Personnne ne Rouge which is a stunning red shade, very bold and most definitely an all year round shade.

The new shades within the Colour Edition 24h eyeshadow are the products which also sparked my interest, especially as there are two new shades. I already have a few shades from the range, but am glad I have been able to add 07 Flocon d'or which is a frosty white shade. Once applied it gives a really lovely light colour which I use as both a base and as a highlighter and hen there is 08 Marron Givre which is a warm chocolate brown with a little hint of sparkle, perfect for the party season which isn't too far away.



Sticking with eye make-up we have a new mascara and eyeliner too. The Volume 1 Seconde Ultra Black Mascara is said to be blacker than black and captivating. It features a high concentration of high intensity black pigments which give you an enchanting gaze for up to 16 hours! Add to it the Mega Liner in Ultra Black which has a no smudge formula and an angled felt tip applicator to allow you the ability to control the shape and size of your liner, you have the makings of the perfect night out make-up.

The final products are the 2 new shades within the One Seconde Nail Polish range. We have 44 Grey to meet you - a stunning gun metal grey which has a great shine to it and 45 Glitterizer which is a silver glitter packed full of little flecks of sparkle to add over your Christmas nails to get you in that festive mood, or just because you can and want too!. Also making an appearance was 11 Rouge in Style, whilst red isn't my favorite nail colour, this is a shade which is perfect for for Christmas time. These polishes are great, the "fan effect" brush which makes applying polish a breeze, perfectly fanning out and covering the nail bed in one single stroke.


Thank you for having me Bourjois, I had an absolutely fantastic night, and the goodies I received are out of this world and I am still enjoying playing with them, but here is a sneak peak as to what you can expect to find in future posts.



What do you think to these new releases? Is there anything which has really caught your eye?
