The Foundation You Really Need to Buy



The title says it all really. I raved about the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation before but since repurchasing it a few more times, I feel like I can now really give you the low down.

I’ve been using this for a couple of years now on and off but after trialling and testing so many drugstore foundations, this is always the one I turn back to. Despite being the price of a high street foundation, it has so many high end qualities.

It provides a light to medium coverage with a dewy finish, just perfect for summer. I also find that it blends so effortlessly into the skin no matter whether you use your fingers or a brush. One pump of product will cover your whole face (plus more) and for me, this will quite happily last all day on my face with the occasional top up of the Healthy Balance powder. I know some people aren’t too keen on the fruity smell which this gives off but personally I love it. It’s a little reminder in the morning that no matter how spotty I am, I have this secret weapon to give me a natural but flawless base.

One of the most important things to note about this foundation though is that it doesn’t contain any SPF. Perfect for flash photography but not so great for those sunny days, not that we have many of them in the UK but you know. I’d suggest popping a layer of the Benefit Dream Screen on your face before applying this!

All in all, the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation is one you really need to get your mitts on. But then again, if you haven’t tried it by now then let me ask you, have you been living under a rock for the last few years?

Repurchase? Yes.

Really like bourjois makeup – aren't they from the same company as Chanel, just without the price take? x
