Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation

17 February 2014

When it comes to foundation, I'm often too scared to try new things in case I don't like it, in case it feels horrible on my skin/causes a break out etc. I was trying to think before I started writing this post what foundation I used before Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, but all I can remember is the Dream Matt Mouse from Maybelline and a tinted moisturizers, but I'm sure there was more.
Last year though around Christmas (by last year I mean 2012 not 2013) me and my sisters all got the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, since we all had heard such great things about it and I've been using it ever since.

I don't have much to compare it to and I feel like I should splash out and try something new, but I hate spending money, there's loads I want but I hate spending! I'm the worst to go shopping with because I just spend the entire time debating or not whether to buy something. Also since I'm happy with this foundation I never buy anything else, but I really do need to.


This foundation smells lovely, as it should since it uses natural ingredients. It is quite thin, so when it's on it feels light and doesn't make your skin feel all horrible. It has a light coverage, but can be built up. I personally use it with the Collection Concealer and just apply an average amount of this foundation and I'm good to go. Oh also the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer under my eyes because I am a nocturnal creature but rather than sleeping through the day I just never sleep at all, so I need to cover up my bags.

It gives you a healthy glow and I like to pair it with Rimmel Stay Matte Powder and I'm good to go. I've read other reviews on this and have seen a lot of people hate it but I love it! It doesn't make my skin look s greasy or feel all wet on my skin. It lasts a long time for me, well at least six hours during school, then after I don't really mind. It does cling a little bit to dry skin, which is frustrating, but you just have to moisturise well I suppose!
This is the amount I use, around half a pump even though you could probably  use less. A lot goes a long way.
I have this weird thing where my right eyebrow is like permanently raised and I'm not sure why..

But yeah in the first picture I'm wearing under eye concealer, in the second one I am weaing collection concealer (at least I think, I forgot the order of the pictures) and in the last one I am wearing the foundation.

When I try other foundations I'll be able to tell how good I actually do find this foundation. The two other foundations I want to try is the L'Oreal Magnique foundation and Rimmel Match Perfection, which has a heavier coverage so would be better for when my skin is bad. But you're kind of stuck in a constant cycle, because when you have loads of spots, you want to wear more makeup to cover it up, but you don't want to wear more makeup because you don't want to make your skin even worse!

  3. Hi Libby!

    Thanks for your comment over on my blog! I've replied if you wanted to go and check it out!

    I've never tried this foundation! Only the serum in the same range which I find is a little too yellowy for my skin tone unfortunately. Maybe I just have the wrong shade but I'll probably try this out next time I'm shopping!

    Would love to hear your opinion on that EcoTools brush in your pictures! I have many of their brushes but not that one!

    1. Ahh thank you, I was wondering what to do for my next blog post and now I know!:) I think it does have quite a yellowey tendency, but that works for my skin since mine has yellow undertones rather than pinky/redish ones!x

    2. Haha! Be sure to let me know when you post about that EcoTools brush!

      I wonder if there are pink toned ones in the collection? I'll be sure to look properly next time I'm out!

    1. You should! You won't regret it, well then again I have heard lots of mixed reviews about this, but I'd say give it a go! I personally love it (in case you couldn't tell) and it's easy to build up the coverage if you don't like the coverage it gives!x
