review: bourjois healthy mix serum gel foundation

Thursday, 28 May 2015



This foundation seems to be my summer favourite because last year on the blog I featured it a bit! But it is such a nice foundation to wear that you just can't not love it. I'm going to review it because although I've featured it on my blog a lot I haven't actually reviewed it.

Claims
Give your skin a boost of radiance with 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 vitamin-rich fruit therapy formula with litchi, goji berries and pomegranates.


Pros
Buildable- 
One pump is literally enough for my entire face and I get a good medium coverage- on any red areas I usually get half a pump and blend it but I really don't need much product to give an amazing result!
Smells amazing- 
It's made with litchi, goji berries and pomegranates so the smell of these combined gives it such a fresh smell and it doesn't give that weird foundation smell that some of them get?
Gives a glow-
 It does claim to boost radiance and I can't agree more- to be honest I do wear a highlighting primer underneath which probably does give me more of a glow but I still know from not wearing the primer that it gives you that healthy glow you want in summer.
Not too heavy- 
As this is my summer foundation I don't want a heavy foundation so this is really good, I can't feel it on my face and it feels like I've just got a bb cream on!
Packaging- 
It's a plastic bottle with a red lid, it's pretty sleek and can fit in my makeup bag easily. It's not the prettiest packaging but it does the job, it's got a pump which you can never go wrong with.

Cons
Doesn't last up to 16 hours-
It does last a while but definitely not 16 hours- I'd say 8 is probably the max I've gotten out of it? Which is half of what it claims so it isn't that great.
Not a huge range of colours- 
There's 6 colours to choose from in this collection, which when you think of other brands (talking to you L'oreal) who have a huge range for your right skin tone and colour it's a wonder why other brands can't do this?
No SPF-
This is my summer foundation so it would be nice for it to have SPF in, and I can't be the only one who thinks that just by the bottle it's going to have it in? Pretty much all foundations have SPF in now so it's just a shame that this one doesn't.

  1. Have you ever used the healthy mix foundation? I'm wondering what the difference is! It's pretty light too but mine lasts a good 12 hours with a minor touch up.

    1. I haven't, I do really want to try it though- think I might pick it up and see what the difference is? Oh really? Do you use a primer with it and if so what one?xo
