Happy New Year everyone!
My first review of 2015 will be the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation.
I bought this in mid December as an alternative foundation for minimal makeup days. Here’s what I think of it.
What it promises: “Radiant and flawless complexion for up to 16 hours! Bourjois’ Healthy Mix foundation is enriched with a fruit therapy formula to enhance your complexion.” — Boots UK
The first thing you will notice about this foundation is it smells amazing. Personally I think it smells like children’s suncream, a sort of mildly fruity scent that takes me back to past summer holidays. Absolutely love this.
Good low coverage
I’m not sure about flawless complexion, but I can certainly agree that this foundation gives a nice, low coverage finish that is very light to wear. Very “my skin but better”.
Sorry Bourjois, this foundation does not last for 16 hours. It can last decently maybe for 8 hours maximum, but definitely does not stay in place and provide full coverage for any where near what it promises.
Hydrating – hooray for the healthy mix!
Bourjois breaks down the ‘healthy mix’ of fruits for us – apricot for radiance, melon for hydration and apple for young looking skin. At 20 years old, I can’t say I really notice whether this product makes my skin look younger, but it is certainly hydrating and makes my skin look radiant.
Shade used: Light Vanilla
Price: £9.99, Boots UK
