So on my (what seems like never ending) hunt for the perfect foundation I stumbled upon this little pot from Bourjois. The masterminds behind the amazing Health mix, Happy light and Health mix serum, I thought this would not disappoint. Bourjois promise that this will leave you with a flawless complexion, refined pores and smoothed fine lines. Sounds like a miracle product, doesn't it?
There are currently 4 shades in the range. I opted for shade 43 Nude Dore. Not good news for those who are darker or very pale. It looked rather orange in the pot but this didn't translate on the skin. It also felt really thick when I scoped it out to apply. I applied it with my favourite Real Techniques buffing brush, it blending in beautifully and continued with my usual base makeup. The coverage was light to medium. I looked in the mirror to check it out and the first thing I noticed was my pores! What? This claims to refine pores?? I never really noticed my pores before so I was not pleased, to say the least! I also have a few minor acne scares that I've not really noticed with makeup on - those where noticeable to! I was so unhappy I applied another layer *huff*. Which didn't help. I ended up removing and using a different foundation. Which I was no ideal with when I was trying to ready in rush!!! I've used it three or four times since in the hope I was just having a bad skin day but I had the same result every time.
Overall, this is one the worst foundations I have used and I would not recommend this, unless you have pretty much perfect skin!
If you do like the sound of this foundation its available here.
What does everyone else think of this? Or is just me who doesn't like it?
Until next time...
