I have not abandoned you! 🙂
Apologies for the lack of posts… Bare with me – it’s my dissertation. July was not the best of months for me – Between being busy, being stressed and such, it was hard to find the time and energy to blog. But it is August now… So I’ll do my best to turn a new leaf.
Enough Blabbing! Onto my review…
The first time I bought something Bourjois was from ASOS.com. They had a sale on all beauty items, so luckily I got them cheaper. I got one of their single eye shadows and one great mascara: the Bourjois Fan-tastic Volume Mascara (click for a short review). I have seen everyone rave about their Health Mix foundation for ages… So when we were at Boots, in London, I just grabbed one. (P.S. Here’s my London beauty haul: http://bit.ly/17ZgqLD) – Little did I know there is not just the one Healthy Mix foundation…
There’s this one:
And this one… (which is the one I tried and about to review)
I cannot say anything about the first, but I only heard good things. But what about the second one, the SERUM foundation? This is a snippet of what Bourjois (Don’t you just love the name?) has to say about it:
16 HOUR RADIANCE BOOSTER* EVEN & REVIVED COMPLEXION
Give your skin a radiance boost with Bourjois’ Healthy Mix Serum Gel foundation –
made from a vitamin-rich fruit therapy formula for an even complexion and an instant anti-fatigue result!
Its fresh and instant blending gel texture blends and glides onto the skin for an even, natural finish with no mask effect. Imperfections are erased, signs of fatigue are smoothed and the skin’s radiance is boosted for up to 16 hours*.
Made from an instant anti-fatigue vitamin-rich fruit therapy formula with litchi, goji berries and pomegranates.
Available in 6 radiance-boosting shades.
Now let’s see what the all.things.lady verdict is…
- Contains natural, vitamin enriched ingredients
- Smells amazing
- Feels completely fresh on your skin
- Revives your skin
- Does not clump nor clog pores
- Feels lightweight – you’ll forget it’s there
- My shade (52 Vanilla) is just perfect for me
- Gives you just enough coverage (not if you have acne scars)
- Perfect for Summer, especially if it’s a hot one
- Can be applied using your hands or a Beauty Blender effortlessly
- Comes in a glass bottle – I’m scared I’m gonna drop it!
- More expensive than Catrice foundations – It is still worth the money though
The all.things.lady Verdict:
Great Product! It is my July Favourite and I just love it 🙂
If you want something that doesn’t feel too heavy for summer, if you want something lightweight, that smells amazing and is perfect for everyday use, GET this! It’s not a full coverage foundation – but for me it’s the just right – Your face won’t look TOO perfect, if you know what I mean. It helps to enhance your own skin, rather than to cover it completely like some other foundations. Oh… and it’s good for my skin! It’s hypoallergenic, so it lets your skin breathe.
I am loving this brand. Did you ever try any Bourjois products?
