I have recently been trying out this foundation and concealer in the Bourjois new and improved “Healthy Mix” anti-fatigue formulation for everyday use for a few months now. I have never used a Bourjois foundation or concealer before however I have heard a lot of hype and positive reviews on the original formula of this foundation over the years so I was very keen to get starting using this!
I have the foundation shade in number #52-Vanilla which is a pretty good match for my skin tone. I feel like I could maybe go one or even just half a shade darker though because this foundation is quite light on the coverage and this shade is quite light in shade as well. I tend to mix it with one of my other darker foundations in the meantime and it seems to be working well enough. 🙂
The pump style bottle is one of my favs in terms of foundation bottle designs. It is the easiest and quickest way to use foundation and minimises the mess and excess product wastage as well. The finish has a nice dewy glow without being too shiny and lasts throughout the day really well even though the coverage is on the lighter side.
I am sometimes off at work for up to ten hours a day at the moment and this still looks alright when I get home at night!
If your skin usually gets a bit oily though out the day then I would suggest you might need touching up with some power or blotting papers throughout the day, otherwise you should be alright.
When a foundation does more than just cover my face like this one going the extra mile with it’s “mix” of vitamins including C, E and B5 than that’s a great bonus and makes me feel good wearing it!
If you’re after a light weight everyday foundation in both feeling and coverage that looks youthful, glowy and natural than this one might be for you. In my opinion I think this would make a great first foundation for young girls or for those who like to keep it natural, light and simple for day to day use.
This concealer is also quite light coverage in terms of hiding blemishes and pores. It does highlight well especially under the eyes though and makes a good contouring highlight without the shiny sparkle of some illuminators which when you’re going for a fuss free everyday work look you don’t really want.
I have this in the shade number #51-Clair Light. This matches well with the foundation above, again perfect for those with very light skin tones. If I purchased this in the future I would go one darker with the foundation, but stay with this concealer shade.
The packaging is simple, clean and easy to use. The formula isn’t too thick or runny, but just the right consistency to apply and blend with the doe foot applicator.
Overall I would say this is a good budget friendly, day to day concealer which would be ideal for those with good skin without many flaws as it is too light to cover big blemishes, pores or dark circles. A fair price though and a product which I am happy to continue to use on a day to day basis for work, running errands on the weekends and spending time with the kids.
Together this due is nice and simple. It doesn’t appear cakey or heavy and lasts throughout my long days as a working mum.
