Review:Bourjois 123 Perfect Foundation #53 Beige Clair |EN|







Hello everyone

Today’s review is all about the foundation I’m currently usingBourjois 1 2 3 Perfect in the shade 53 Beige Clair.

Bourjois is one of my all-time favorite brands and I’ve tried mostly all of their foundations, that are available in the Bulgarian market – I have in depth reviews on these 2: Healthy Mix (review here) and Air Mat (review here).





The quality of all of them I’ve tried is really high – great formula, feel on the skin, packaging, scent… All characteristics are on point plus the color selection is suitable for women with yellow toned skin, like me, which makes Bourjois foundations great pick if you are searching for yellow based shades.





1 2 3 Perfect isn’t new product on the market. It’s color selection includes 5 shades and all of Bourjois shades numbers are matching – for my skin I know that during the cold months I’m shade 52 or 2 from Bourjois shades, as well as during the hot months when I have tan my choice is 53 or 3.  I think this practice is really versatile because I always know which shade will suit best my skintone and I only have to choose what type of foundation I need: matt & middle coverage Air Matt, light formula and matte finish 123 Perfect, dewy finish and light to medium Coverage Healthy Mix, high SPF and semi-dewi finish City Radiance, etc.

1 2 3 contains the standard for this type of product 30ml amount and it is in stable glass container with pump. 1 2 3 has light, barely detectable powder scent – same scent have Bourjois blushes Blush Joues, highlighter Le Petite Strober, their loose powder (#truebourjoisfan).






 1 2 3 Perfect’s consistency is really light and liquidy – easy to apply and blend on the skin, after application it needs 2 to 3 minutes to set and the finish becomes matte. This is my first time trying a foundation that has matte finish and such a light texture, which automatically makes it my favorite.  I have really oily skin but in the same time I don’t like thick, heavy foundations on everyday bases – I much prefer light, airy consistencies with semi-matte finish, which I fix additionally with matte powder.   






I apply this foundation with flat buffing foundation brush for natural look. 123’s texture doesn’t emphasize pores, fine lines or light imperfections and the coverage is light: it evens out my skintone and it covers light imperfections such as light redness and spots, but for pimples, regular redness, dark circles or hyperpigmentation you’ll need additional use of concealer. Coverage allows building if you prefer applying more than 1 layer of foundation. 1 2 3 does not dries out my skin and it has good longevity on me: in cool weather is +12 hrs as in the winter I wore it on its own, with no powder on top, and in hot and humid weather longevity is around 8 to 10 hours and I need to matte throughout the day with some clear powder, but keep in mind that my skin is desperately oily – if you have normal, combination or like regular oily skin, you’ll probably not need additional mattifying with powder throughout the day.  





1 2 3 Perfect contains color correcting pigments that work anti imperfections: yellow for anti-dark circles and hyperpigmentation, purple for anti-dull complexion and green for covering redness.  I don’t have dark circles, hyperpigmentation or dull skin so I can’t confirm if this foundation does what I claims, but I do have light redness around my nose which 1 2 3 successfully covers and I don’t need to apply additional green concealer to neutralize them.  Except for concealing imperfections, Bourjois claims 24hrs hydration and I agree: I don’t feel my skin dehydrated or dried out after I take it off, also “second skin” effect and light, airy texture – I totally agree that these claims are true.  
 
1 2 3 Perfect as SPF 10 which is ok for cold months in the city, when I spend like 10 minutes outside, but for sunny months and hot weather I always wear extra SPF underneath.




 
I can’t find any cons in 1 2 3 Perfect, I already used up 2 bottles of it in a row and I have 1 extra waiting, so I can qualify it as great product: I like the light texture, matte finish, natural look it gives me, good longevity and medium coverage. I categorize it as an universal foundation – I’ve worn it during the winter in minus degrees and snow, as well as in the summer weather at the moment: +30 degrees Celsius and strong sun.  During the colder months I wore without powder on top and now, in the hot weather I reapply powder to set it once throughout the day. Great pick for everyday bases!

I recommend 1 2 3 Perfect to those of you who like foundations with light texture, matte finish and middle coverage, women that have combination to oily skin. Definitely 1 2 3 Perfect is one of my favorite foundations I’ve tried and its next to Air Mat in my personal top list. Air Mat has higher coverage and true matt finish, while 1 2 3 Perfect is lighter and has finer matt finish.

Have you tried 1 2 3 Perfect and what are your thoughts on it? Tell me in the comments.

Review:Bourjois 123 Perfect Foundation #53 Beige Clair (BG)







Здравейте

Публикацията днес е посветена на фон дьо тена, който използвам в момента – Bourjois 1 2 3 Perfect в нюанс 53 Beige Clair.

Bourjois е сред любимите ми брандове и съм пробвала всичките им фон дьо тени, предлагани на българския пазар, а обстойни ревюта в блога имам на 2 от тях: Healthy Mix (ревю тук) и Air Mat (ревю тук).
Качеството на всички, пробвани от мен, е много високо – чудесна формула, усещане върху кожата, опаковка, аромат…Всички характеристики са на ниво, а цветовата селекция е изключително подходяща за жени с жълт подтон на кожата, което прави фон дьо тените на Bourjois чудесен избор за жени като мен, които имат подчертан жълт оттенък на кожата.





1 2 3 Perfect не е нов продукт на пазара, цветовата му гама включва 5 нюанса, като всички нюанси при различните фон дьо тени на Bourjois съвпадат – за себе си знам, че през студените месеци съм номер 52/или 2, както е номерацията при Air Mat, а в топлите, когато кожата ми е с тен, изборът ми е номер 53/3. Намирам това за изключително улеснение, защото винаги знам кой нюанс ще ми пасне спрямо цвета на кожата ми в момента.






1 2 3 съдържа стандартните за фон дьо тен 30мл продукт и се помещава се в стабилен стъклен флакон с удобна помпа. Фон дьо тенът има лек, едва доловим аромат на пудра – същият аромат имат и ружовете им Blush Joues, хайлайтърът Le Petite Strober, прахообразната пудра (#дасиистинскиbourjoisфен).






Консистенцията на 1 2 3 Perfect е много лека и течнананася се с лекота върху кожата, като след нанасяне ѝ трябват около 2-3 минутки да се фиксира върху кожата, при което финишът става матов. За пръв път попадам на фон дьо тен с матов завършек, който има толкова лека текстура, което автоматично го превръща в мой любим продукт. Имам изключително мазна кожа, но в същото време не обичам плътни, тежки и силно матови фон дьо тени в ежедневието, предпочитам леки, въздушни консистенции с полуматов финиш, който фиксирам допълнително с пудра. Фон дьо тенът нанасям с плоска четка за фон дьо тен, за максимално естествен вид. 







Текстурата не подчертава пори, фини линии и леки несъвършенства, а покритието е средно: изравнява тена и скрива леки несъвършенства като зачервявания и светли петънца, но за пъпки, червенини, тъмни кръгове или пигментни петна се налага допълнително да прикриете с коректор. Покритието позволява напластяване, ако предпочитате да нанасяте повече от 1 пласт фон дьо тен. Не изсушава кожата ми, има добра трайност: в хладно време +12 часа, като в студените дни го носих самостоятелно, без да го фиксирам с пудра, а в горещо и влажно време трайността е около 8 до 10 часа, като веднъж дневно матирам с прозрачна пудра, но кожата ми е отчайващо мазна – ако сте с нормална, комбинирана или нормално мазна кожа, вероятно няма да ви се налага да матирате в продължение на деня.







1 2 3 Perfect съдържа 3 коригиращи пигмента срещу несъвършенства: жълт за прикриване на тъмни кръгове и пигментни петна, лилав за освежаване на безжизнена, уморена кожа и зелен, за прикриване на червенини. Нямам тъмни кръгове, пигментни петна или уморен вид на кожата, затова не мога да потвърдя от първо лице дали се справя с тези несъвършенства, но имам леки червенини около носа, които фон дьо тенът успешно прикрива и не се налага да използвам допълнително зелен коректор за неутрализирането им. Освен коригиране на несъвършенствата, Bourjois обещава и 24-часова хидратация, което съм съгласна, защото не усещам кожата си изсушена след като го премахна, ефект „втора кожа“ и лека, ефирна текстура –  определено смятам, че обещанията са изпълнени.

1 2 3 Perfect има слънцезащитен фактор 10, който за в студените месеци в градска среда е ок, но за слънчевите месеци слагам допълнителна слънцезащита.







Не намирам недостатък в 1 2 3 Perfect, вече използвах 2 опаковки подред и имам 3-та приготвена, затова го квалифицирам като чудесен фон дьо тен: харесвам леката текстура, матовия финиш, естествения вид, който придава на кожата, добрата трайност, средното покритие. Категоризирам го като универсален – носих го през зимата на минусови температури и сняг, както и в лятното време в момента: 30+ градуса и силно слънце. През много студените дни го носих без да фиксирам с пудра, а в топлото време го фиксирам още веднъж с прозрачна пудра в продължение на деня. Чудесен избор за ежедневен грим!

Препоръчвам го на тези от вас, които харесват фон дьо тени с лека текстура, матов завършек и средно покритие, подходящ е за жени с комбинирана и мазна кожа. Определено 1 2 3 Perfect се нарежда до любимия ми Air Mat на върха на класацията ми с любими фон дьо тени, като Air Mat e една идея по-покривен и по-матиращ, а 1 2 3 Perfect е по-лек и с по-фин матов завършек.

Вие пробвали ли сте 1 2 3 Perfect и какво е вашето мнение? Споделете ми в коментарите.

Приятна вечер ви пожелавам

Scented Review: Roberto Cavalli Paradiso Assoluto EDP |EN|







Hello everyone

Today’s scented review is about Roberto Cavalli Paradiso Assoluto EDP – really sunny,  carefree, sophisticated and feminine scent

Spring has already arrived and I’m in the mood for sunny, soft and joyful scents which is Paradiso Assoluto. Paradiso Assoluto translated from Italian mean “absolute paradise” and I definitely think that this name suits the scent a lot: Paradiso Assoluto is carefree, summer, sunny scent, scent for vacation, for beach, for sea & humid weather, really joyful and sparkly.  

I already wrote a bit about this perfume here so if you don’t want to read in depth review on it, then click on the link and read the short overview. 

History:
 
The third fragrance of the Paradiso collection is Paradiso Assoluto, released in late 2016. Paradiso Assoluto represents aromas of a heavenly garden, its generous nature and intense flowers. It is announced as a sensual and alluring scent that starts floral and spicy with accords of red pepper and wisteria. A wild jasmine note, signature to the Paradiso line, is mixed with red lily in the heart of the perfume. The base is described as sensual and creamy, with accords of patchouli, sandalwood and vanilla. The nose behind this fragrance is Louise Turner.





Description:

Top notes: red pepper, wisteria, bergamot, grapefruit, lemon 

Middle notes: wild jasmine, red lily, passion fruit 

Base notes: patchouli, sandalwood, vanilla, red lily, cashmere

Development on my skin:


Right after spraying Paradiso Assoluto is straight up citrus sharp scent - I feel detectable grapefruit, lemon and bergamot notes, a bit spiciness from the pink pepper: at this point it feels almost unisex (my nose doesn't detect any wisteria here or later). Up to 15 minutes after spraying the scent goes softer, milder and the unisex feel is totally gone - there is white flower explosion: deep, intense and strong wild jasmine and little bit of barely detectable red lily.  Perfumes that have strong white flower notes aren't for everyone's liking and you must like white flowers to enjoy this one. In the base Paradiso Assoluto has strong wood feel: a lot of sandalwood, a lot of patchouli, a lot of cashmere and a tiny bit of vanilla. Sandalwood makes the scent warmer and it gives me association with warm, sun kissed, tanned skin on a tropical island and the wind is bringing smell of white, creamy and fragrant flowers.  

Patchouli here is gathered and soft, almost mild and it doesn't feel heavy, damp and overwhelming. I think that cashmere adds that soft feeling to the scent and it makes it so unique, compared to the rest white flower based perfumes. There is a bit of vanilla in this scent, but it's barely detectable and it doesn't irritate me - I hate vanilla so much and it makes me feel sick whenever I smell/taste it, but the vanilla in here isn't the classic sweet vanilla, it's more of a woody type of vanilla, that is nicely paired with the white flowers. It is in the right amount to add some sweetness to the scent. 

Paradiso Assoluto definitely has intense development: sharp citrus opening, followed by strong white flowers explosion and in the base – white, creamy flowers with wood suspicion. Main notes I feel in this perfume are jasmine, sandalwood and cashmere, with a little bit of barely noticeable vanilla. For me Paradiso Assoluto is really interesting and complex, absolutely feminine scent. Paradiso Assoluto gives me tropical associations - for me is carefree and vacancy suitable scent, which I can't wait to wear during my summer vacation and until then I'll enjoy it in the city. 



Packaging:

The bottle, designed by Eva Maria Duringer and shaped like a faceted diamond, is colored in shades of red this time. Bottle is really pretty, solid and stable and it feels luxurious.


Storage:

Fragrance is available as a 30, 50 and 75 ml Eau de Parfum.


Season appropriate:
 

For me this scent is suitable for spring & summer. 

Time appropriate:

I prefer wearing Paradiso Assoluto as daytime perfume, but during the summer I've worn it as night time scent as well. 






Longevity:

Longevity is so strong that I have to be careful with the spritzes I take on it  - if I put too much it is so strong, that it irritates me.
Usually white flowers scents are incredibly long lasting and this one makes no exception - longevity is around 12hrs – 24hrs on my skin and on my hair, clothes or even sheets it stays until I wash them. Even in the highest temperatures when basically any scent has shorter longevity, this one lasts more than 12hrs. 

During the spring when the weather is cooler I spritz Paradiso Assoluto 4 times and the scent lasts from early in the morning to late in the night.
During the summer when the weather is hot & dry, with temperatures over  25 I spritz just 2 times, because if I put more Paradiso Assoluto is so strong that everyone around me can feel it and I don't think my colleagues or the people around me are supposed to feel my perfume the entire time.  If I'm in a non-formal atmosphere: by the sea/on vacation/on a walk, I'll go for the usual 4 spritzes. This scent is so long lasting that I don't need to reapply it during the day and even If I go out I spritz it only once and not every time.


Paradiso Assoluto is non-typical white flower scent - really warm and sunny, soft and mild, super feminine and with the right dose of sweetness in it, that isn't fruity or gourmand sweet, it's floral type of sweetness.   Its composition blends wild jasmine, woody notes and cashmere, that add feminine, sexy feeling to the perfume - the smell of confident woman. Paradiso Assoluto isn't girly scent, it's feminine scent, which has impressive longevity and intensity and people always notice it. I categorically don't think this is an easy to like scent, because it has such a non typical composition and it's not for the mass liking. 

Paradiso Assoluto definitely has that Cavalli smell - I noticed that all of Cavalli's perfumes have that specific creamy white flower note and I detect it here as well. Other scent that I think is kind of similar to Paradiso Assoluto is Roberto Cavalli Just Cavalli: Just Cavalli is softer, sweeter and girlish, while Paradiso Assoluto is more non-typical white flower scent, more mature and feminine.

The other 2 scents from the Paradiso collection also have that carefree, summery and holiday-ish mood: classic one Paradiso is citrus-green perfume and Paradiso Azzuro is an aquatic-lavender perfume. For me & my liking Paradiso Assoluto is the most intriguing from these 3 perfumes, but if it's too floral or sweet for you then test the other two Paradiso fragrances. 

What are your thoughts on the perfume Roberto Cavalli Paradiso Assoluto?
