Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation

I often get so caught up in rave reviews about beauty products, especially when I'm not paying too much. Team that with online bargain sites, and I often fall into temptation. I'm sure you're with me here :)


Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation
Bourjois Healthy Mix was a foundation that I'd been wanting to try for some time. This is the original formula, and I'm interested in trying Healthy Mix Serum version. The product has many claims, including 16 hour wear. Containing apricot, melon, apple and ginger, it has been formulated to be good for your skin. Giving radiance, hydration and antioxidants.

The foundation comes in an airless pump-top plastic bottle. I love that I can see how much I have used.

The consistency is typical of a liquid foundation. I ordered shade 53, and thankfully it was a perfect match for my skin. I notice a slight fruity scent to this product, which quickly disappears. 

I found application easy, as the foundation just glided over my skin, giving me an even finish. I was happy with the lighter coverage, it is buildable, but I'm content with an evening of skintone, as I find this more natural and surprisingly less aging than a heavier flawless application.

The finish is semi-matte, so helps with my combination skin, but still allows the skin to feel hydrated.

16 hour wear? No, but I don't need my foundation to last that long. I get around 8 hours, I'm more than happy with that.

Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation is worth the hype, in my opinion.

Have you tried the current version? I'd love to know what you think! :)

  2. I've never tried any Bourjois foundations hon, but this sounds like it would be good for me, especially being semi-matte. I don't need 16 hour wear either, but 12 would be nice - I'll comment here again if I buy the new version hon ♥
