BOURJOIS HEALTHY MIX FOUNDATION REVIEW

25/10/2015


Foundation is a very difficult product to suit to your own skin. I rarely find a foundation that I love, which is a shame. I tend to love a product and then fall out of love with it. Of course, some have come close, but none have been perfect, or products that I would purchase over and over again. I have somewhat of a love-hate relationship with foundation. I mean, I can't possibly leave the house for a day without a full face on, but at the same time I just wish I could find a foundation that I had absolutely no faults for (dreaming away here, I know).



I have read many reviews about this foundation before I decided to jump on the bandwagon myself. I have never actually heard a bad review of this foundation, and I have to say that I generally agree with those views. I haven't had any really subsequent problems at all, and I have been really quite confident wearing this foundation. It has a rather high coverage, which is great because I tend to get quite bad discoloured and spotty areas. The only small problem I have found is that I don't think it is really that flattering for my skin when I am having an oily day. I feel as though it has quite a gleaming, healthy looking glow. Although this is what some people may be looking for in a foundation, it is not always that flattering for my skin. But, in no way does it ruin this foundation for me. I  just dab on a bit of powder to control the oily areas, and leave the other bits dewwy where the sun naturally hits my cheeks. It's such an easy foundation to work with.

I use the vanilla shade in this foundation and I can honestly say that it suits my skin tone perfectly. It is super easy to blend too, which makes it easy to make discreet in a natrual looking makeup look. You can build up the layers to make it have a higer or lower coverage. I tend to add a little more when I am wearing a dark lip (loving MAC's Dark Side at the moment). I have been using this foundation so much that it's already less than half used. But I will definitely repurchase this foundation...I love it!

Have you tried this foundation? How did you find it?

  2. This is one my favorite drugstore foundations, it hydrates my skin (i'm more on the dry side) and it covers any imperfection! ❤️
