Hello my pretties!

I hope you are all doing well. Today, I want to share my thoughts on the very much talked about foundation, especially in the beauty blogging world. I have to say that Bourjois is definitely one of my favourite "drugstore" brand for foundation. I have previously tried their 10 hours sleep range and I just loved it so much but for some reason I have never repurchase it (I think I got distracted by other foundations). Anyway, let me carry on with this beautiful specimen that is Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation

The foundation comes in clear plastic bottle (which looks and feels like glass but I don't think that it is) with red cap and white foundation pump! Finally a foundation with a pump that produces just the right amount of product, no mess necessarily (unlike Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation which has no pump...what is up with that?).

Tiny pump of foundation.

The texture of the foundation is unlike any other that I have tried before (and I have quite a few because I believe that great looking make-up needs a good base). Its gel consistency is just incredible! It blends into your skin so beautifully that it doesn't look like you are actually wearing foundation at all! Perfect for those days that just want to create very subtle no make-up look. Even though, Bourjois' range of foundation doesn't come in that many shades but so far I have always found one that suit my skin tone perfectly. I'm a MAC NC25 and wearing this Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum in Shade 53. So, if you are very pale or very dark, you probably won't be able to find a shade that suits you.

Blending!!!

Shall we talk about the scent? This Bourjois foundation just have extremely lovely fruity scent! Although I do realised that this probably won't be for everyone's taste but I just adore it, so, it doesn't bother me. I really like using this foundation with wet sponge (definitely my favourite way of applying foundation) because I just feel like they both give very natural looking finish. However, I do find that it works fairly well with fingers application too (I actually hate applying make-up with my fingers, especially foundation because then I'm left with foundation hand and everything I touch will be covered in foundation *nightmare*).

Blended!!!!

I don't know if it's because of the gel texture or the fact that it contains serum that once I apply this foundation onto my skin, my skin is left feeling very soft and smooth. I can't see any dry patches or anything all day. My skin is left looking fresh, dewy and radiance (totally not complimenting myself here). I mean, look at my hand above, you really can't see where my foundation is because it blends seamlessly into my skin whilst providing natural looking finish. When I'm using this foundation, I don't feel like I need to powder my face to set the foundation at all and because I really like how it looks on its own. It is very long lasting too because my face is still looking pretty damn fresh at the end of the day. 

This foundation is perfect for people that are looking for light coverage everyday foundation. It is great for people with dry skin too as I have recommended this to my friend who also has dry skin and she loves it too. So I guess that would answer your question of whether or not I'd recommend and repurchase this because that is a yes from me! Definitely worth the hype!

You can get this from Superdrug for £10.99 currently has 3 for 2 offer going on.

  5. I really want to try this foundation but I don't think any of their darker shades would suit me. It's such a shame because everyone says wonderful things about it. It seems to look very good when it's blended in.

    I much prefer a light coverage foundation and I agree, the Revlon Nearly Naked foundation really should have a pump.

  6. Great review! I tried this a year back or so and loved the texture and finish, but unfortunately it was a bit too dewy on my oily skin. Glad you're loving it! xo
