The Budget Buy: Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation


For someone who isn't really into foundation, I have a lot of them. But I always end up going back to the same one, Bourjous Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation. I've been using this for over a year now and cannot fault it. I know that some people have broke out with it, as my sister actually did and passed me on her bottle, which is when I fell in love with it. But I find it perfect for a day to day foundation.

I find that it's a light coverage foundation, but it's definitely build-able to a medium coverage. I find it is applied best with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush, but I sometimes do use my fingers to apply it. The finish is very skin like, not too dewy and not too matte, it's very similar to Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation. It has also been compared to YSL Touche Eclat Foundation, but I don't own that so I can't comment on it.The shade I use every day is 52 Vanilla, but I also do have 51 Light Vanilla and 53 Light Beige, so I'm able to change the colour according to my skin. I was using 53 Light Beige when I was a tanned throughout the summer and 51 Light Vanilla will be used when my freckles disappear and I am forced to accept my winter pale skin.
For around £10.99, it's worth picking up to try if you haven't already. I chop and change quite a lot with my foundations, but I always end up coming back to this.
