Bourjois 123 perfect CC cream

A product that came to my attention from Essie Button (oh the perils of watching YouTube) and I just had to purchase it – the flawless way it looked on her skin was gorgeous. So what are my opinions on the Bourjois 123 perfect CC cream?

It’s thicker than a BB cream, yet not as heavy as a foundation – perfect for some coverage over summer months and with spf 15 I would positively recommend! The finish is slightly dewy and unquestionably moisturising, it would be great for school as it’s not too heavy, likewise it would be great if you wanted just enough coverage to look like you were wearing makeup without being cakey. It doesn’t cling to dry patches and doesn’t break me out, I would say it is the best CC/BB cream I’ve tried so far! 

I apply the cream using my real techniques buffing brush, to really buff the  liquid into my skin – developing a flawless base for the rest of my makeup. 

The only issues I could find with the CC cream is it only comes in four shades, the one I have being the lightest. I have quite pale skin and I find it a perfect shade match, but other people might find it difficult. 
Hope this helped some of you and that you are looking forward to trying some lighter bases going into spring, are there any ones you like a lot?
