Bourjois Paris 10 Hour Sleep Effect Foundation Review

Bourjois Paris 10 hour sleep effect foundation.

I am not a big fan when it comes to very heavy foundations. Although, I don’t have great skin to start with, I still feel that a foundation with (at least) medium coverage is needed for everyone to shield skin.

What does Bourjois Paris claim?

  • Bourjois comes to the rescue!
  • Anti-fatigue foundation with vitamins* and minerals (*vitamin derivatives E, F and B5)
  • This Anti-fatigue foundation conceals all signs of fatigue thanks to a formula enriched with a high concentration of vitamins E, F, B5 and minerals.
  • Dark circles, skin imperfections and a dull complexion are replaced with an even and rested complexion.
  • Light and oil-free formula.
  • Pump bottle to provide the perfect dose.

Price: Rs. 920 for xx ml.

Shades available: Abricote Clair 71, Rose clair 72, beige clair 73, beige 74, abricote 75, rose 76.

Where to buy: All Bourjois counters across lifestyle and westside. Kunchals.

What I think about this foundation:

  • I totally loathe foundations with heavy coverage. The only time I probably wore a heavy foundation was for my wedding.
  • This foundation promises a very light but even coverage which looks really natural. At first, it seemed a bit pricey for a foundation with less coverage but then I knew it was totally worth every penny.

I got this in a shade called “beige clair 72” which was well suited for my complexion.

It’s so darn cute I say. Lovely and hygienic pump packaging. The pump dispenses the right amount for me. Some may find it to be a bit less for one application, but as long as there is no product wastage, I am good :).

The texture is pretty much that of a light liquid foundation. It’s a little runny though, but blends like a dream. It feels more like a tinted moisturizer than a foundation.

How to apply this?
I just take a very small amount and blend with a wet sponge or my hands. In fact, it blends so beautifully that you don’t actually need a sponge, just bare clean hands would do!

The pictures show how natural the foundation looks after blending 🙂  and also the amount dispensed by the pump which is perfect for the whole face.

I loved how natural this looked on my skin. I could see that it gives the illusion of plumped up skin. Brilliant! Delivers the 10 hour sleep effect indeed .:)

The coverage is medium but very buildable. Does not really cover all the blemishes in one go, you might wanna use a concealer but I like the coverage with this one. It covers moderately. Feels oh-so-light on the skin. Awesome and practical for everyday use.

The lasting power is also pretty good. Stays for a good 5-6 hours and absolutely no greasy feel at all :). Yay for that. :yes:
The moisture balance is perfect too. You can skip moisturizer if you are using this in summer.

Smells very mild. I don’t know how to describe the scent, but it sure is very pleasant. So good that I almost forget that I am using a foundation!  I have tried so many foundations that smell like paint, plastic and awfully bad chemicals, but not this one.

I totally love this one. Yet another great product from Bourjois.

What I like about this foundation:

  • Feels light and totally non-greasy. Gives skin a dewy finish without making it look oily.
  • No funky smell unlike most foundations.
  • Blends beautifully.
  • Plumps up skin with a natural glow
  • The packaging is adorable and so hygienic

What I dislike about this foundation:

  • The price. Rs. 920 can be a bit too steep, but this one has lasted me a good 3-4 months!
  • Shade selection could me more.

Will I re-purchase this one? Yes. Definitely Yes.

This one is definitely worth a sshot if you haven’t tried it. I am pretty sure most people like me who want light but natural coverage will love this one. 🙂

Have you tried this foundation?

Was it a love or a hate? It was a total love for me. How about you?

  1. We are yet to receive this in India. The last ones that we got were healthy mix and mousse foundations.

    I love foundations that give medium to full coverage. I personally feel that the chances of getting a cakey look with such foundations is pretty less.

    I will definitely give this a try when this come to India. this looks like a twin brother of MaxFactor’s age renew foundation..They both have the same packaging. 😉

    1. Hey Rati,

      I am sure this is available in India…I got this in Chennai almost a year back and got a backup also a few months later at lifestyle 🙂 It’s definitely available in chennai…mayb not yet in Delhi? But I thought Delhi people get to enjoy stuff first 🙂

          1. Mayb it got discontinued and they r launching it with a new formula again 😉 anyways u must try this Rati, u’ll love it 🙂

  2. Bourjois Bourjois bourjois…i will write a song for them. I am using their mousse foundation these days and it looks very natural on my pinky skin. i have their kohl pencil, concealer, blush, nail polish and i love everything from them. i want to buy all their blushes. :-/

    Very good review. You covered everything. :clap:

  3. I love Bourjois and I definitely wanna try this once its available here in India.

    Now I got to try the brush foundation + the mousse(once again as the trial sorta turned me off)) . Such a greedy list no?Gawd!!

    1. Hey Poornima,

      I got this in India a year back…Dunno y everyone is saying its not available 🙁 has it been stopped? God I hope not 🙁 And I like giving products a second chance as u say 😉

        1. Yeah poornima sure…do chk that…mayb it’s dis continuted also…and they’re coming up with a new formula mayb?? 🙂

  4. Hey Appu, what is your skin type, if you don’t mind my asking. This sounds like an awesome foundation, but not sure if it would suit my super sensitive skin.

    1. Hey Ame,

      I have combination to dry in winter and combi to very slightly oily in summer(T zone)…and I do breakout if a product formulation sucks… So I am sure this will not affect your sensitive skin 🙂

  5. this sounds every bit like my dream foundation, but then errr….will I get my matching shade…everythign seems to be rose shaded….. 🙁

    1. Yeah Jomol….that’s the problem with Bourjois…their shades are not formulated with Indian skin tones in mind I suppose 🙁 But you should get it….if not westside, lifestyle is always there 🙂

    1. Yeah Sush…if u r the oily skin types, I guess you can skip moisturizer…this is pretty hydrating itself 🙂

  6. Hey Appu… Gr8 that you found your almost HG foundation… :yes: :-* :-* :inlove:

    I, unlike you, like a full coverage foundation… Coz, usually i go with my compact powder… When i want ot really deck up, i use foundation…. So I want it full then… :beauty: :beauty: :beauty:

    but ultimately it comes to what works for you… if this works for you, i say… Enjoy!!! :drink: :drink: :drink:
