Hey hey hey peeps! What up?! Okay so you guys probably can’t tell thanks to the magic of pre-writing but I haven’t written a post in nearly 2 months. This time it wasn’t because I was busy but I sort of fell off the bandwagon and once you fall off it definitely takes a minute to get back on. Now that I’ve switched to artificial lighting I am hoping to have more of a balance between taking photos & writing posts. Now this was just a mini update if you will but today’s post is a review of a long time favourite – the Bourjois healthy mix serum foundation.
So if you want to hear my thoughts, keep on reading!
Coverage: This is a light coverage foundation. Most of the time when you see the word ‘serum’ in a foundation’s name you can assume the coverage won’t be enormous.
Skin types appropriate for this foundation: Normal to dry/dehydrated skin. Oiler skin types will not find that this foundation lasts a great deal. I mean obviously, when you factor in primers and setting sprays you could make it work. But this foundation was made particularly for drier skin types.
Longevity: It lasts an average amount of time. On my dehydrated skin with an oily t-zone, I’d say it lasts between 6- 8 hours. Now, this isn’t including using stuff like a long lasting primer or the urban decay setting spray. Though I do notice my blemishes peak through rather quickly.
Application: It’s very easy to apply. It literally glides on even if you have dry patches or textured areas on the skin. This foundation does not accentuate any of that. I usually apply it with my real techniques face expert brush.
Packaging: It’s pretty standard foundation packaging. It’s in a tall and slim bottle, feels light and it has a pump.
Formula: The formula is super light-weight, blendable and very creamy.
Pros: Natural looking, blendable, feels weightless on the skin. It looks very flattering, glides over dry patches.
Cons: It doesn’t provide a lot of coverage, isn’t super long-lasting. The shade range is a bit limiting.
Shade range: There are only six shades in total. It does have some options for fair skin when I was very pale I find my first perfect shade match with this foundation.
Price: $32 AUD off Priceline. And it’s $22.42 AUD off feel unique.
Overall thoughts: I love this foundation. It’s wonderful for the every day and looks so pretty on the skin. I just love how even though one may have dry patches it really just glides right over. This is definitely a lovely foundation worth checking out.
Would I repurchase this?: I have purchased it in a new shade as my current one is quite pale for me.
And that wraps up the post. Have you guys tried this foundation or any Bourjois base products? What do you think? Drop a comment and tell me. I hope you guys have an awesome day and I’ll see you in the next post.
