The New Fave: Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation

I always want to feel safe in my foundation choices so as soon as my current favourite foundation runs out, I always feel obliged to buy the same one again, but recently I’ve been trying my utmost to try out new foundations to me and to see how they work with me. After a bottle of the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum ran out on me, I decided to give the foundation equivalent a go; I’d tried the serum foundation when the hype surrounded it and have since heard that the foundation is the better of the two and I totally agree.

The Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation is not only a much more medium coverage finish (and note that the Bourjois concession now tells you if a foundation of theirs is low, medium or high coverage) but the general finish on the skin is much more radiant than I ever found the serum foundation to be. In comparison between the two, I’d almost go as far as to say that the serum foundation is much more like a BB cream finish whereas the foundation is a foundation in its truest form. The serum tends to avoid covering blemishes well and a lot of concealer is required to make your skin look better. This foundation does almost the opposite: it covers so much so that you only need a tiny amount of concealer and you end with a slightly better finish than you would do with the serum.

The two pictures of me above (which are Instagram pictures before they were edited on Instagram) show me wearing the foundation and I think it’s pretty clear that the finish of the foundation is smooth and radiant – I haven’t felt this confident about my foundation-covered skin in a long time. I feel like my skin looks happy when I’m wearing it and that any imperfections are hidden with great success. The colour match is also a pretty nice one too and the range is a fair one, but it in no way rivals the range of Revlon which is pretty disappointing.

Nonetheless, I feel like this foundation is a staple that everyone needs in their makeup bags. If you haven’t tried this already, I urge you to do so if you’re a fan of more medium coverage foundations. I feel like I’m obliterating all of the little sins on my face and I’m not caking my face in it to do so: it’s a great feeling.
