So today I have another review! This time its on the 'Bourjois healthy mix serum gel foundation' which I recently purchased from Boots, and I love. One thing I must apologise for is the TERRIBLE photo quality and lighting, as you all know it's winter so therefore the lighting goes quicker, and my camera doesn't like dark weather, so I have to work around that. I WILL FIND A WAY. but, don't judge my pictures, hopefully they'll never be like this again!
|The bottle.. I apologise for the flash, only way to get a half decent picture in this lighting!|
|Hand swatch, sorry about the pen on my hand...|
|My shade 51, the lightest shade.|
I apply a thin layer all over my face evenly, and its blurs redness a little and imperfections. I wouldn't say that it completely covers imperfections but defiantly makes them less obvious. But like anything if you apply more you would get a fuller coverage. I don't have perfect skin, and I do love makeup and never want to be restricted with what I can wear because of my skin so I do wear foundation but I never wear a lot, and I know from previous experiences some foundations and BB creams do irritate my skin, and cause me to break out, but this foundation certainly doesn't.
The smell is too die for, it doesn't have that weird 'you-know-its-makeup' smell, it smells incredibly fruity and delicious. On the front and back of the packaging it say that it contains litchi, goji and grenade, I'm going to be completely honest and say I have know clue what fruits they are but they smell amazing. I brought this product because I heard people rave about it and its smell and I have to agree.
One thing though is that they didn't have the best range of skin shades, so if you where of a darker skin tone, its hard to find the right shade. I'm very pale so shade 51 is perfect! Another thing is that the price is a little more expensive than most drugstore foundations, it was originally £10.99, but I paid £7.99 for it! RESULT.
This was just a quick review, so to sum it up. I LOVE IT, and will be repurchasing it again! But if you have anymore suggestions on any type of product you'd like me to review, leave it in the comments!
