My Boots/Drugstore Face combo

So recently I've been using the bourjois happy light foundation with the infamous Rimmel stay matte powder I've heard so much about these two products I had to give them a whirl.

Let start with the base the bourjois happy light foundation this doesn't give a dewy finish for all those that like a glowy look may not want to try I would say its satin finish as it's not either it sits in the middle somewhere. It blends easy and is a light to medium coverage so brilliant for everyday use especially for those like me who don't like to much coverage for everyday. I only need half a pump as I feel I have enough coverage. What I love about this is it doesn't look like I'm wearing much or if any foundation, does not leave a heavy feeling even after a full  day of wear.So far I'm loving this foundation and think it's even better then the healthy mix as that can make me look oily by the end of a long day.

That's my take on the foundation moving on to the powder after consulting with you lovelies on twitter I decided to give this a go.I've been using to set everything the Rimmel stay matte powder. I brought this the same time as the foundation above, so far I'm really liking this powder, it last for about 6-7 hours on me it mattifys any dewy oily bits and seems to keep my makeup in place. I use the transparent one as I don't want any more coverage I do find it has a white tinge to it so if you are medium to dark skin tone I wouldn't advise you use this as it can come off a bit chalky.

Overall I'm really like the combination of these two products combined, they having been donning my face for just over a month now and I have no intention on changing it up now that something I don't say often.


  1. I wanted to try this foundation but they didn't have it in my shade. I went for the Borjois 123 and I love it. I love the Rimmel stay Matte powder to, and agree they are are great base products.
