Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum - Review
I mentioned in a recent haul that I bought the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum for £7.99 in Boots. I think I may have found my staple foundation at last! I've spent a lot of time and money trying to find a foundation I really love that matches my skin tone and works well for me. I do still love my Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation but it takes a lot of blending to match my skin tone which isn't great when I'm in a hurry.
This has a slight scent to it, but it's not noticeable once you've applied it, but it's not an unpleasant scent and it's quite subtle. My shade is 51 Vanille Clair (Light Vanilla) and it's the lightest shade available. I didn't swatch it before buying it which is a bit risky but there were no testers available. It is almost the perfect match, it's still very slightly too dark but being as pale as I am I always struggle trying to find a perfect match!
It's a gel foundation and it claims to have a 'half-matte finish' which I'd say is true. It still leaves your skin looking healthy (hence the name Healthy Mix) but it doesn't look oily. For me this foundation lasts about 8 hours before it starts wearing off a little unless I apply my MAC Mineralize Skin Finish powder.
Shade 51 is actually a very good match for my skin, it does oxidize very slightly near the end of the day but it's usually around the time I'm taking my make up off so it lasts a good 8 hours beforehand! I can't compare this to the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation since I've tried it because every time I go into my local Boots they don't have a shade pale enough for me! I'd love to try it when I can get my hands on it though.
What's your favourite foundation?
