For spring and summer my favourite makeup brand Bourjois is releasing few new products*, focusing hard on the brow game, there's new foundation, whole range of brand new lipsticks, something to take care of your cuticles - even for the most time-pressured women - and a reinvented nail polish with unique triangle bottles! Safe to say there is plenty to choose from!
The most exciting launch for me - a lipstick lover - is of course Rouge Edition Aqua Laque! You know well by now that I simply can't live without Rouge Edition Velvets and I reviewed majority of the shades on the blog before, so I couldn't wait to see and try this new Bourjois lip creation. I am working on a post with all the swatches, so stay tuned for that. For now, I'm going to tell you that Aqua Lacque is in essence a brand new hybrid lipstick combining a high concentration of water and Nymphea extract which has great moisturising ability. It's apparently so potent that Bourjois is advising against applying any nourishing/moisturising lip balms beforehand - just pure Aqua Lacque on dry and clean lips. There are eight shades available for muted nudes, pretty pinks and fiery reds - definitely something for everyone!
New La Laque collection of twelve nail polish shades is a combination of amazing colour, concentrated pigments and shine. All is packed in a unique triangle bottle with generous precise round brush which covers the nail in just one stroke. There are both classic muted tones and crazy colour packed shades to paint your fingers and toes when going on holiday. I really like them. (RRP £6.49)
Available from May at Boots, Superdrug, very.co.uk, asos.com, feelunique.co.uk
Bourjois Magic Nail Care (apologies for taking photos on the French side of the label!) is an innovative treatment with jojoba oil to get intensely nourished nails and cuticles. The concept is exactly the same as with Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover - you dip each nail, twist and remove the finger and massage the edges to rub in the oil. All can be done in mere 1 second, so it's perfect treatment-on-the-go or to take on holiday. The formula has a fresh scent and it can be used also on painted nails without removing your polish. (RRP £5.99)

I'm yet to meet a person who doesn't like Bourjois foundations. From Happy Light and CC Cream to Healthy Mix Serum and 1,2,3 Perfect Foundation - it's a budget foundation heaven. The new Bourjois Nude Sensation foundation coming in four shades has an incredibly light texture and melts instantly into the skin leaving it soft and supple. It smooths blemishes rather than camouflaging them, so you really can get incredible results with it. I am not usually a fan of potted foundations, but for this one I'll definitely make an exception. (RRP £9.99)

I've been really into eyebrow products, routines and maintenance lately and I'm happy to report that Bourjois took the brow game seriously this season. They are launching Brow Showroom to suit the product for every need, desire, look and shade of eyebrow. First is Brow Design Brow Mascara coming in three colour shades (the one in the photo is the lightest one) and a transparent one. It's designed to tidy up, fill in and fix your eyebrows. (RRP £7.99) Next is Brow Natural Eyebrow Felt-Tip Pen coming in three shades with semi-transparent formula that allows you to easily and subtly reshape your eyebrows. (RRP £6.99) Sourcil Précision is a brow pencil with a built-in brush and offers a soft tip and easy blending which means that you can neat, reshape and intensify your brow look however you want. It comes in six shades to match your hair colour. (RRP £4.99) One last brow release which got me most excited is Brow Beauty Touch Eye Illuminating Pencil (I haven't received a sample but couldn't wait to blog about it anyway). It has one slightly pearly illuminating shade and its purpose is to use it beneath the eyebrow arch to emphasise your look. Anyone senses Benefit High Brow Pencil dupe? I think so, but for a fraction of the price - RRP £6.99!
