Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream & CC Eye Cream review, before & after photos

Oh Bourjois, just when I thought I couldn't love another BB or CC cream, you big fat went and brought this one out.  One that has rarely been off my face since I was given it back mid November.  I bring you the 123 Perfect CC Cream which comes in three shades.  And each shade has a matching CC Eye Cream to boot.

Like the Perfect 123 foundation, it contains three pigments, apricot to eliminate the signs of fatigue and lets be honest, I'm quite fatigued all the time, a green pigment helps combat redness and white to help disguise age spots.  It has a respectable SPF 15 in it, contains white tea and has a really lightweight, oil-free formula that my skin just loves.

I was given two shades, the lightest, which is really quite pale and would absolutely suit fair skin and I gave it to Joanne to try out, and this one, the medium shade Beige Clair which is ever so slightly dark for me but I've still been wearing it nearly every day, blended down the neck a smidge.

Like every other foundation type product, I apply this with my buffing brush and it sinks in right away, evening out my skin tone and covering my redness and blotchiness.  I love that it gives me just enough coverage but still lets my skin show through, making it look healthy and glowy.  I mean look at the photo below.  My cheek looks lovely!

Once I powder it into place, generally just my t-zone, it stays put all day and yes, I have been known to apply more over what's already on my face if I'm going out from work... So bold but it has to be done sometimes!  And it perks my face right up.

The 123 CC Eye Cream comes with a silicon applicator which can be used to work the product into the skin and while it does a great job of brightening under my eyes, it sits on my skin and looks slightly crepey, so I haven't used it too much.  At €10.49, it's a decent concealer if the skin under your eyes isn't too dry.

The CC cream will be €13.99 and will launch on January 23rd, but I bet it'll show up in Boots earlier.  If I hadn't been given the CC cream as a sample to try, I'd have bought one anyway because hands down Bourjois do amazing foundations.

If you see me these days, I'm wearing the 123 Perfect CC Cream, just so you know.  Am in the love with it and will purchase it myself when I run out.

Will you be trying this folks?
