Hellllo Healthy skin....Bourjois Healthy mix foundation review
What i have noticed though is that most women like their foundation to give them a healthy appearance,a radiance that looks completley natural.I think this foundation may have hit the jackpot!!!
As a make-up artist and general lifelong self made guinea pig i have tried about a million (no exaggeration *cough) foundations...from the cheap and cheerful to the insanely expensive and at the moment this one for me is running alongside nicely with MAC's face and body but at around 75% cheaper i may have to retire my old faithful.
My skintone is slightly olive and i used shade 53(beige) which out of the three available shades is the medium and found it was perfect although if i had st.tropez'd id probably go up a shade.
Ok so the foundation itself comes in a 30ml pump bottle which dispenses just a nice amount of product and is nice and easy to contol the flow unlike so many.It is infused with apricot,melon,apple,and ginger and has the most wonderful fruity scent which makes you feel as though you are giving your skin a real treat.
Bourjois say that healthy mix gives up to 70% more radiance for up to 16hours....i totally agree infact i would say i felt 99% more radiant but not for 16hours,who wears foundation for that long anyway???? It lasted on me for around 8hours...but that is fair enough for a medium coverage foundation.
What i also noticed is that,very much like the MAC face and body you can build up the layers without it looking cakey (be sure to blend though!).
At £9.99 the price is pretty much the norm for a hs brand foundation but i have noticed that its on offer at boots for £6.99 atm.
For me this is the ultimate high street brand foundation...of course i will keep on trying others...i have 5(oooops!!) unopened in my kit as we speak,but while a foundation is making me feel this pretty i'm gonna be sure to try them out on days when im staying in the house.
