BOURJOIS HEALTHY MIX FOUNDATION REVIEW
Hi everyone, today I will be reviewing Bourjois healthy mix foundation which is my absolute favorite these days and new love 🙂 🙂
I actually bought it on a bit of whim, I was not looking for a medium coverage foundation as I was quite satisfied with my oriflame mineral foundation, but there was something a little more impressive about this foundation that made me buy it 😀 😀

My Experience With bourjois healthy mix Foundation
I was looking for a full coverage foundation which gives some glow too. Unfortunately I couldn’t find one, as whichever brand I checked (L’Oreal, Ingot, Revlon) would show me foundations with loads of shimmer particles if I mentioned the word GLOW.
As I was sulking away from the mall, I saw a counter of Bourjois products. I tried a few products there. The SA then showed me this foundation & told it has received voted product of the year award for 2011 & also that it’s their best seller. Pretty impressive huh…!! I got it done on my half face and I really liked how it looked & felt on my skin. I noticed that it’s a medium coverage foundation and not something that would give me full coverage. Despite that, I ended up buying it 🙂 🙂 🙂 and I am so glad I did. It has now become my HG (medium coverage) foundation.
Ok, coming to how it works. It blends on my skin within seconds. I love how it brings back life to my sometimes dull face , something which I would otherwise achieve after a good 6 hour sleep. It has a very light feel on the skin and with this on, my face looks natural, silky and flawless enough, quite comparable to air brushed finish provided by professionals. It has a slight scent which is very mild, and bearable… Also, it gives a slight glow to the face even when it does not contain any shimmer. Its pretty long lasting too, it stayed fresh for at least 5-6 hours (with a primer).Though I haven’t tested it without a primer as I never miss out on using it. The fact that it contains fruit extracts makes me love it even more. Overall, I really like this foundation & I use it very often these days for my day time makeup.
PROs of bourjois healthy mix foundation
• Looks really Natural on the skin
• Blends super easily on the skin, without much effort
• Gives semi matte finish with subtle glow.
• Great for Normal to combination skin. It has never broken me out.
• Decent lasting power. Stays fresh for up to 6 hours
• I love its Silky texture. Applies equally well with foundation brush or fingers.
• Contains a lot of fruit extracts.
• Very easy to use pump type dispenser
• The bottle is made of plastic, so it’s apt for carrying.
CONs (not many) of bourjois healthy mix foundation
• Gives medium coverage, so if you are looking for a full coverage foundation, you may not like it.
• Contains silica, which is not actually good for the skin.
• The shades available do not match well with Indian skin tones.
• A little on the expensive side for a medium coverage foundation.
Will I buy it again- yes, but I am sure this won’t finish up in near future.
