I had a lot of fun creating this look, I used on three colours as I wanted it too be completely cool toned. It took a long time blending, as I used Peacock which is a matte true teal colour as a transition shade, but I am so happy with the result.

Let me know what you think.

Bourjois Paris Happy Light Luminous Serum Primer

Bourjois Paris Happy Light Luminous Serum Primer
Although I have finally declared my primer search officially over, I had bought this before my beloved Nivea Men Sensitive Post Shave Balm.

Since I have been sticking to my skin care routine religiously my skin has become so much better, the oiliness has vastly reduced and I can go without powdering the vast majority of my face, and achieving a natural lit from within look, so I decided to try a dewier primer.
Bourjois Paris Happy Light Luminous Serum Primer
The primer is a light weight, gel like formula which once applied to the skin absorbs extremely easily. Although pastel peach in colour the primer offers no coverage, it also contains no shimmer or metallic particles. 

Once applied my skin did look more radiant and glowy, however on reflection, it looked no different to if I had applied a regular moisturiser. My foundation did smooth on and buff into my skin easily, and it did have the much sought after lit from within appearance. I noticed however after around 2-3 hours of wear my skin looked oily especially around my forehead, nose and chin. After several hours my foundation had started to split and break apart, again in those three areas.

Sadly this primer does nothing for my combination skin, but I am sure it would be ideal for someone with drier skin than mine, as the extra moisture boost would be greatly appreciated. It is a shame it didn't work with my skin type as I love the happy light foundation.

Has anyone else tried this foundation?
