There are a lot of stand-out products from Bourjois for AW13 (in fairness when aren’t there standout products from this brand for any given season, eh?) but these leapt out at me immediately. This is mostly because they are SHINY and GLITTERY and I am an inveterate magpie.

They’re Laser Toppings and can be used solo or over a base shade, like the two launching with the collection.  Shades are Blue Neon, Sun Scales and Aqua Purple. The two creme shades are 1 Second gels in In The Navy and Turquoise Block.

I’ve no launch date or price info yet but I’d be surprised it they were more than around €8 apiece and as they are already on sale in Boots in the UK, I’m reckoning on them being in our Boots stores here soon, with regular pharmacy appearances a month or so later. I’ll confirm all that for you, however.

So, what’s excellent about these?

  1. Bling
  2. Packed with sparkles
  3. Fun

All good things from a beauty product, if you ask me. I swiftly removed the caps and lashed them on for a quick look-see.

This is two-and-a-little-bit coats. The glitter’s in a clear suspension and there’s a lot of it, so you won’t be all day about getting the finish you want. I’ve plenty of pots of sparkles that take five coats to layer up to anything remotely decent-looking, and honestly, who has time? Two layers brands, two. That’s all the time we can spare for nail paintin’, I mean it.

So, two it was, and these will look even better over a base colour, I’d wager. Love ’em. Do you?
