Love Bourjois products like me? Then, you have all the reasons to be happy as the brand has launched quite a lot of products in India now. I am reviewing here today the pressed powder/compact I purchased.
Give your skin a boost of radiance and even out that skin tone! Enriched with exotic fruit therapy to restore and rebalance the skin:
- Yuzu – Anti-shine.
- Sharon fruit – hydration.
Its ultra-fine texture is easy to blend and its feather-light feel will make application easy! Its slim compact casing and large mirror inside is an ideal handbag essential and perfect for touch-ups on the go!
Available in 4 natural shades suitable for all skin tones and it’s good for my skin:
• Hypoallergenic formula.
• Non comedogenic.
• Dermatologically tested.
• 52 Vanille
• 53 Beige clair
• 55 Beige fonce’
• 56 Hale Clair
I got the shade 52 vanilla in it, as I use the same shade in the Bourjois Health mix foundation.
INR 575 for 9 gms.
The compact comes in a sturdy, round, cute, red colored plastic casing which is very sleek. The packaging may not seem very classy, but it is undoubtedly pretty and attractive. I like the red colour and all the fruit pictures on its front 😀
It comes with a built-in vanity mirror but unfortunately no sponge or puff 🙁 I prefer to keep compacts for touch ups during the day in my bag, so with this, I have to keep/carry a mini kabuki along. Anyway, nothing really bad, even MAC’s MSF has no mirror or puff in it 😛
My Experience with Bourjois Healthy Balance Unifying Powder:
I am a big fan of Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation and when I saw the latest launch “Healthy Balance Compact” and claims like 10-hour matte, I couldn’t skip buying it. Also, I prefer powder/mineral makeup for summers over liquid/creamy formulas.
The pressed powder has really soft texture which blends quickly/easily into my skin. It is very lightweight on the skin and does not get cakey. I like the fact that it gives a natural, matte finish without making my skin look flat, lifeless or dull like other mattifying powders. There is no shimmer or glitter in this powder.
It has this; mild, sweet, fruity fragrance which I like and nothing that bothers me.
Since there is no puff or sponge provided with this, you can either use a brush or puff to apply/blend this. I used to apply compacts/powder makeup with brushes till some time back, but after see a video by Goss Makeup artist, I switched to puffs.
The thing I like the most about this compact is that it controls oil/shine very well and is greatly matte. If you have oily to very oily skin, you should definitely give this a try.
On my combination skin, I need a good greasy moisturiser underneath this, otherwise my skin looks a little dry. But, I am sure this will suit me really well in summers when my skin gets a bit too oily.
I am very impressed with this pressed powder for its ability to control oil. Just yesterday, I went out during the day and wore this on. Even after returning home (after 4-5 hours), my face had no sign of shine/greasiness. Repeating, but this is definitely going to be my perfect summer partner.
About the coverage, I would say it is little more than light, so between light-medium coverage it has. If I wear it over a BB cream or a tinted moisturiser, I get almost flawless finish.
The shade 52 matches my skin tone which is NC 25 in MAC, quite well. But overall, the shade selection isn’t really great, with just 4 shades available.
Overall, I am absolutely satisfied with the product and I will definitely recommend this to matte lovers and especially to ladies with oily-very oily skin. Normal-combination skin can get this too, but you will have to wear a good moisturiser underneath this.
