Pretty at...The Bourjois Summer Launch

A few days ago, I went to the launch for some of Bourjois's summer products. I went with the oh-so-awesome Simone, from Simone Loves Makeup. Love that lady, she's so funny! And we managed to squeeze in some political discussions, too. Who says beauty blogger's can't get serious?

The event was held at Bo House, a Bohemian themed cafe/restaurant at Jumeirah Beach Residence. I didn't even manage to try out the food because I was so obsessed with the yummy drinks!!

This event launched two new product ranges, the Trio Smoky Eyes palettes and the 10 Days Nail Enamel range. The trios are "inspired by the timeless Bourjois Little Round Pots and offer a range of 3 complementary colors for smoky eye effects". The nail polishes have "an exclusive fortifying formula and angled touch-up brush." They also promise to give "perfect color and hold for up to 10 days".

 The fashion shades were my favorites. I love the bright colors. I totally wanted to steal those shoes!!! hehe

Classic Shades, gorgeous neutrals that are perfect for special occasions or any time of the year.

A 'sexy phone' (for those of you who watch Modern Family hehe)

 The eyeshadow catwalk. It took me forever to realize that the colors on the catwalk coordinated with the shadow palettes!

Gorgeous greens in the Vert Trendy palette
 The Gold Smoking Palette. I love the gold in it for a dramatic, summery smokey eye.

The palettes are small enough to fit in your palm or clutch! :)

Everything was so cute!!
I had my nails painted in #16, Coral pink. So pretty and summery. And honestly, has not chipped since the application!


I had such a lovely time. And it was nice to meet some other bloggers, as well. We were given a goodie bag with some of the products to try out and I will swatch and review them as soon as I can! Have any of you tried these products yet?

PS. Please answer my poll on the top right corner of the page. I'm slightly concerned that I use too many pictures in my blog posts and would love to hear what you think! Thank you so much!! :)



  1. Aww it all looks so cute!
    I have a pink one of those palettes, that I haven't used in a while thinking about it!
    The green one looks really nice.
    I like the look of those drinks too ;)

  2. The smokey eyes pallett looks so cute, and those drinks look gorgeous. Making me want a double vodka - no I'm not an alcoholic!!
