NOTD: Bourjois Peace and Mauve

This is a recent addition to my collection - yes, that's right, the same collection I vowed to stop adding to, uh huh, that's the one - but I saw it in Boots and I just had to have it. I have no idea how I've never noticed it before - is it a new one? 

I apologise for the photos and poor paint job - I made a spectacularly awful job of painting on my top coat, so then figured I'd take the shots from a distance.. and well, you can see the results. But no matter how big a mess I've made, it's still clear to see it's a fantastic colour.

I think it has taken the spot of "favourite pastel polish ever" for me. It's so pale I'm not sure whether to class it as a pastel shade or an off-white - I think largely it depends on the lighting. It's the same colour as Param Violets only paler - if that description helps anyone out there.

This looks awesome on my paler than pale skin tone too. We all know white or pale shades will make a tan pop, but, when you're as pale as me, warm toned pastels can actually look quite draining I find. This works well because of the blue undertones, it makes my skin look more yellow/warm/alive by comparison.


  1. Hi kitty!

    This is a lush colour isn't it?? Love it! Bourjois have some lovely colours at the moment don't they? Bit pricey, but are they worth it?

    1. Oh yeah, Bourjois have some seriously original (and gorgeous) colours if you ask me. I know what you mean about the price, they're like double the cost of a Barry M - but I do think they're worth it and plus, they're on 3 for 2 a lot in Boots! xx

  2. ooooo 3 for 2 - it'd be rude not to wouldn't it?!

    Yeah a little more pricey, but I think I will treat myself and see what they're like! Thanks Kitty!

    Love Shani xo
