The french greeting is very appropriate for the product I’m reviewing today, which is the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation.
This one is in the shade 53, but originally I had bought a shade 54, which I found to be slightly too dark for my skin, since summer is not quite fully here in the UK. I then decided to keep my shade 34 for when I’m back from my sunny holiday in the Mediterranean, and I bought a shade 54 to use whilst I’m still a bit paler.
The Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation comes in a lot more shades than the concealer from the same range, which only comes in 3 or 4 shades, so that was a plus. I decided to buy this foundation based on my super successful experience with the Healthy Mix concealer, which has now become my all time favourite concealer!
The consistency of this foundation is quite runny, but that helps it blend in well on the skin, so I wasn’t too worried about that. As soon as you start rubbing it into your skin, you can see that you’ll get quite a full coverage with this product!
I don’t normally go for the full coverage foundations because having dry skin, I find that full coverage foundations, such as my MAC Mineralize Satinfinish SPF 15 Foundation, make my skin look a bit flaky and cakey. However, the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation completely covered all my blemishes and redness, with only a bit of flakiness on the driest part of my face (in between my eyes). All you need is two pumps of the bottle to apply it on your whole face!
NB: I did not use any Photoshop on my blemishes because I wanted you to see actual coverage you get from the product.
I am so in love with this foundation already; I hardly need any concealer after applying the foundation and my face looks so fresh, clean and silky. Thank God I’ve got two shades of this because I will definitely be wearing this before and after going on holiday!
This is not the cheapest foundation, especially being a drugstore product, but it’s well worth the money. You can buy this in Boots or Superdrug for £9.99.
