I picked up the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation at the drugstore with no big expectations. My last experience with a serum foundation was a total disaster at the beginning but ended up being more of an application problem than anything else. This foundation caught my attention because it claims to boost skin’s radiance and erase signs of fatigue with a vitamin-rich fruit therapy that includes litchi, goji berries, and pomegranate. All of that with a natural non-mask finish.
I got mine in shade 53, Beige Clair, which seems a little dark at first, but just blends perfectly with my skin color. It is a lightweight foundation with light to medium coverage that doesn’t feel like a serum to me. I need to say that I am impressed with it!! The first time I used it, I applied only a small amount with my hands and I got even complexion. By the end of the day, it simply looked so beautiful and even more natural, like I wasn’t wearing anything! I used more foundation the second time and it still looked natural. I finished it by powdering with the Benefit PoreFessional and started to get a very discrete oiliness only after the 8 hours.
It has a semi-mate finish that looks incredibly natural and feels comfortable, lasting all day. Another drugstore find that definitely surprised me! I’ve also reviewed their City Radiance Foundation here, so you can compare both.
Have you ever tried these foundations before? Let me know!
