Hello there you gorgeous humans! You know by now what a massive fan of Bourjois foundations I am, I’m lucky to have a good streak with their base products. So today I am reviewing another one for you. Now I’ve loved (and reviewed) the previous healthy mix foundation – the old formula (I’m not talking about the serum formula I mean the previous healthy mix foundation & I loved that one). So I thoughts it’s only fitting to talk about the brand new formula that was launched last year. So if you are keen to hear my thoughts, keep reading.
Let’s jump in!
What are the claims of this foundation? It includes Vitamin C, E and B5. It’s a hydrating skincare formula and helps boosts skin’s radiance and regenerating action. It also helps to cover up signs of fatigue like dark circles.
Does it deliver on these claims? It’s definitely an incredibly hydrating formula. It gives the skin a very natural radiance and does cover up everything it needs to cover up. I’m always happy with how my skin looks when I wear this foundation.
Coverage: It gives you medium coverage, no more than that.
Skin types appropriate for this foundation: I’d say this foundation would be good for normal – dehydrated/dry skin. I do have an oily t-zone but I still find this foundation works well for me.
What are the undertones of this foundation? Bourjois foundations are known for having yellow undertones. Now this works for me as my skin has yellow undertones so I never find it an issue to find a shade that matches. But if yellow-toned foundations don’t work for you than you might not find a good shade.
Longevity: I find this foundation lasts very well on me. I don’t notice any below average longevity from this foundation. I do set it with powder and use a setting spray as well – so those 2 factors could play a role in boosting longevity. Of course the oilier your skin is the less longevity it may have.
Application: This foundation is quite easy to apply, it blends out nicely and sits on the skin well. I apply it with a flat-top or domed shaped synthetic foundation brush and then I go in with a beauty blender and further blend it out! I do this technique with every foundation I apply.
Packaging: It comes in a rectangular glass bottle with a pump.
Formula: The formula is super hydrating and glides onto the skin. It doesn’t feel heavy and it doesn’t cake up. It has a natural finish – not matte & not dewy either. It’s not thick in consistency but it isn’t watery, it melts into the skin as soon as you begin to blend it.
Pros: Easy to apply, hydrating, always looks good on the skin, has decent coverage for every day. The yellow tones allow it to match my skin well. I just find it easy to work with and it looks good every time I wear it! It’s also a fair price point for a foundation.
Cons: I do not have any complaints about this foundation whatsoever. I am a little … by that I mean A LOT – obsessed with it! Though the foundation being quite yellow toned may draw a few complaints from others. Its also not going to be massively long lasting on those with very oily skin.
Shade range: 6 shades are available on Priceline, there are 15 shades on feel uniqe.
Price: $29 AUD on Priceline / $17.48 AUD on feel unique
How much product are you given?: You get 30 ml of product.
Rating: 9.5 / 10
Overall thoughts: Any foundation that can give me great skin … each time I wear it, it is good in my books. I feel like I can always rely on this foundation & I won’t have a bad foundation day. It is the perfect everyday foundation in my eyes and I just can’t get over it! I’m glad they made the new formula of the healthy mix even better. This gets two thumbs up from me!
Would I repurchase this?: Hell yes!
