Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation | Product Review


During the Summer holidays I stole my sisters Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation and I fell in absolute love! I have been pretty much been using it every day since! (I'm hoping you are getting the impression that it is amazing)

Consistency
This foundation is the perfect consistency! It isn't too liquidy and it isn't too thick! It goes onto the skin without too much work and can be applied with both a brush and fingers (either works equally as well). Once it is applied, it goes on without looking cakey in any way which is what we all want in a foundation!

Colour Range
Unfortunately for the faired skin girls like me, the lightest shade is rather dark. This is a problem with most foundations but the shade 51, Light Vanilla is only slightly too dark for me (however it is winter, so It may be perfect for me during Summer). To make up for this, I make sure I blend it well down my neck so it doesn't look like I have an orange face.

Coverage
This is what is the most amazing thing about it! It covers all redness and spots with ease and it is definitely build able! I usually use one and a half pumps and that is perfect for me! I would definitely call this a medium to high coverage foundation. Also, once it is applied it looks flawless and natural, which is what I always look for in a foundation!


Lasting Power
On the bottle it says that it lasts up to 16 hours and I can say that this is definitely true to some extent. I have extremely oily skin, so no foundation is ever going to sit on my skin perfectly the entire day without needing a touch up of powder, but I can definitely say that you wont have to worry about any of it coming off! Once it is on, you are good to go for the entire day.

If you want to check out what it looks like on the skin, see my Simple But Chic Face of the Day.

For only £9.99, this foundation is a must have in every girls makeup collection!

What is your favourite foundation at the moment? Have you tried this one?

  4. I've always heard such good things about Bourjois foundations, in particular this one. Somehow I've just never picked one up to try myself. It sounds like a total dream though, I've got oily skin too so it's great to hear that this can actually last and offer good coverage.

  5. I've been using the healthy mix serum foundation but I much prefer the original version, such a great consistency and finish isn't it? Have the tried Bourjois' CC cream? It is absolute perfection!
