Bourjois Silk Edition compact powder
Luxury powder for a lower price
I've read a few beauty blogs raving about this powder and can see it has the potential to become a hit in the cyber beauty world. It has been compared to chanel les beige powder, i would not know as i have not purchsed it but thought the bourjois silk edition in 'vanilla' would be worth a go. I have yellow undertones and wanted it to match my foundations, it gives a hint of colour but is marginly neutral, the others do look like very natural beige tones, which i can imagine would give you a lovely more softer healthy glow as apposed to a bronzer.
The powder itself is nothing short of georgous! it is so finely milled like all the luxury brands that it actually does slip on your skin like a sheer fine veil of silk, not chalkey or cakey in the slightest, i have never come across anything like it, even if you apply it with the sponge applicator it's hard not to over do it. This powder does not dry your skin at all it's almost cream like with a moisturising feel that keeps your skin matte for at least 4hours i would say (i have oily/combo skin) but i could see this as being very good for dry skins. High end for a lower price. Trust Bourjois. Classic.

Just like a high end powder
I bought this on a whim as part of the 3 for 2 offer and I must say I did not expect it to be as good as it turned out to be.
I have quite dry and flaky skin and powders tend to cling to my dry patches making my skin look quite rough, but not this one! It is extremely fine and light, like a high end powder, and it practically disappears into my skin which is a first for me. I've been using it every day since I bought it, very lightly dusting it over my nose and chin to help my foundation stay in place and prevent shine. It lasts a long time too. I'm definitely impressed by this powder.

Well done Bourjois! I'm really impressed by the quality of this powder.
I agree with the reviewers here: it does feel and look like a high end product.
I'll recommend it to all my friends. Again, well done Bourjois!
