Finding the new everyday foundation-Bourjois Silk edition compact







When it comes to my everyday face I keep it simple: moisturizer, concealer and powder foundation. Over the years I've learned this is the combo that works the best for me. Sure, I love occasional full coverage liquid foundation on my skin, but lately I didn't wear heavy foundation at all. So, if the powder foundation is the only thing I'm wearing, it better be good. It gets more complicated if you know I have oily skin and this skin type doesn't always cooperate with powder foundation. 
When I started the whole ''finding perfect powder foundation for oily skin'' adventure I thought I don't stand the chance. Turns out, the odds were in my favour (no Hunger games reference) and fast enough I had the list of favourites. Ages ago (actually a year ago) I even did a post about them, you can find it here. Because we are talking about foundation I use everyday I do use it up rather quickly so I can try new products often. Last one I used was MAC Mineralized skinfinish natural and before that I used Benefit Hello Flawless compact and Lancome Teint miracle compact. 
This time I thought about trying Chanel Natural finish pressed powder, but I decided to try Bourjois Silk edition compact powder first. 
It's the newest edition to Bourjois compacts family. I got the one in shade 52 Vanilla, I think 51 Porcelain would also work for me, but they didn't have it. 
Packaging is quite nice, sturdy and easy to use. The mirror rotates and frankly I see no use in a rotating mirror, but judging by the comments online people are loving it. Like almost every compact it comes with a sponge and I always use the sponge provided to apply this type of compacts (although I have a lot of amazing powder brushes). Reason is pretty simple, sponge gives you the best and the silkiest application. If you don't trust me try it and you'll see the difference. 
Powder itself is incredibly silky, like the name suggests.  Texture reminds me of Benefit Hello Flawless the most. It looks lovely on the skin and blends into the skin perfectly. Coverage is not great, it will make your complexion nicer, but it won't cover bigger imperfections. I don't care much about that, if there is a spot I want to cover, I'll use a concealer first. 
My skin looks very nice when I use this powder, fresh, silky and toned.  In product description it says it will keep your face matte for eight hours. It does keep my face fairly matte until the end of the day which is an accomplishment. 
As newer compacts are being produced, they are trying to make them less and less cakey and this one is definitely not cakey at all. You can reapply it and your face will still look fresh. 
This is truly a great powder I will keep repurchasing when I run out, I only wish it had a bit more coverage, then it would be perfect.



Kada se radi o svakodnevnoj šminki, proizvode za lice svodim na minimum: krema, korektor i puder u kamenu. Tokom godina sam shvatila da je to kombinacija koja meni najviše odgovara. Naravno, volim da s vremena na vreme koristim tečni puder sa punim pokrivanjem, ali u skorije vreme uopšte nisam nosila tečne pudere. Ako je puder u kamenu jedino što nosim na licu, onda bi trebalo da bude odličan. Stvari se komplikuju ako znate da imam masnu kožu i ovaj tip kože ne sarađuje uvek sa puderima u kamenu. 
Kada sam započinjala celu ''naći savršen puder u kamenu za moju kožu'' avanturu mislila sam da nema šanse da ga nadjem.  Ispalo je da su izgledi bili na mojoj strani i ubrzo sam imala ceo spisak omiljenih pudera. Davno (u stvari pre godinu dana) sam čak napisala i post o njima, možete da ga pronađete ovde. Kad pričamo o puderima koje koristim svakog dana, jasno je da ih potrošim brzo što znači da često probam nove. Poslednji koji sam koristila je bio MAC Mineralized skinfinish natural a pre njega  Benefit Hello Flawless Lancome Teint miracle compact.
Ovog puta sam razmišljala da probam Chanel Natural finish pressed powder ali sam odlučila da prvo probam Bourjois Silk edition compact powder.
To je najnoviji član Bourjois porodice pudera. Ja sam izabrala nijansu 52 Vanilla, mislim da bi mi 51 Porcelain takođe odgovarala, ali je nisu imali. Iz nekog razloga kod nas se skoro svi Bourjois proizvodi prodaju tek od nijanse 52, osim Healthy mix korektora koga ima u nijansi 51.
Pakovanje je lepo, čvrsto i lako se koristi. Ogledalo se rotira i iskreno ne vidim neku korist od rotirajućeg ogledala, ali sudeći po drugim komentarima ljudi obožavaju to što se vrti. Kao skoro svaki puder u kamenu, dolazi sa sunđerčićem koji ja uvek koristim za nanošenje ove vrste pudera (iako imam dosta sjajnih četki za puder). Razlog je jednostavan, sunđer omogućava najbolje i najsvilenkastije nanošenje. Ako ne verujete u to, probajte i videćete razliku.
Sam puder je neverovatno svilenkast, kao što mu ime kaže. Tekstura me najviše podseća na Benefit Hello Flawless puder u kamenu. Izgleda divno na koži i savršeno se stapa sa njom. Moć pokrivanja nije sjajna, ten će vam biti lepši, ali veće nesavršenosti neće biti pokrivene. Meni to ne smeta toliko, ako postoji nešto što želim da pokrijem, uradiću to korektorom. 
Moja koža izgleda jako lepo kada koristim ovaj puder, sveže, svilenkasto i izjednačeno. U opisu proizvoda piše da će vam lice ostati matirano osam sati. Stvarno održava moju kožu skoro potpuno matiranom do kraja dana što je svakako uspeh.
Kako se novi puderi proizvode, tako se kompanije trude da ih naprave manje i manje teškim i ovaj definitivno nije težak. Možete da ga dodajete i lice vam neće biti zacementirano već će i dalje izgledati sveže.
Ovo je stvarno odličan puder i kupiću ga ponovo kad ga potrošim, jedino što bi mogao da ima je malo veća pokrivna moć, tada bi bio savršen.

  1. Fotografije su izuzetno zanimljive! :) Pakovanje je stvarno kul i to me najviše privlači da ga uzmem plus to što ne prekriva puno jer mislim da ako želi neko nešto da prekriva, to treba da uradi sa korektorom. :)

    1. Hvala puno! :) Da, nema ništa gore od skroz zacementiranog lica teškim puderom.
