For ages now I have been looking up new foundations to try, what with going cruelty free in August I feel as if I’ve been restricted somehow in trying some of the popular ones that have been popular over recent months, Revlon Colour Stay springs to mind as well as Rimmel Wake Me Up.
However, one brand which I knew I could try was Bourjois, woop woop I have to say as their make-up is so nice! I had heard so many positive thoughts regarding their foundations, I just didn’t know which one to go for. After asking around for what felt like a decade I was finally able to make a decision based on advice from fellow bbloggers to pick up the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum; thanks folks!
Luckily for me on the day I went to choose my foundation Superdrug happpened to have a 3 for 2 on all cosmetics….well, what was a girl to do?
|Healthy Mix Concealer £7.49, Healthy Mix Serum £10.99, Healthy Balance Unifying Powder £8.49|
I went a little Healthy Mix crazy and
got my foundation, the concealer and the pressed powder. I needed a new powder
as my Rimmel Stay Matte is almost spent and seeing as I won’t be re-purchasing
it I thought I would give this one a whirl. I’ve yet to try the Healthy
Balance Unifying Powder so I cannot comment on this properly at the moment.
I picked this up in shade 52 ‘Vanille’ as this is the lightest that they do in
I picked up the Healthy
Mix Serum after what felt like ages trying to decide on my shade. In the
end I decided to go with the lightest shade available which is shade 51
‘Vanille Clair’, however I have to say that when I was testing the foundation
shades I found 51 and 52 to be quite similar, it was either that or the
lighting in the shop was throwing me off!
I’m quite terrible at picking shades and I find that the sales assistants in Boots and Superdrug are just as bad as nobody could help me! I may still have the wrong shade for all I know :/
So far I’m enjoying this foundation, however I will say that I do not find that this foundation provides full
coverage. If you are looking for full coverage from a foundation I think the Flower Perfection might be better as I’ve read this provides more
coverage (I really want to try this). I find that the Healthy Mix Serum gives light to medium coverage, but it appears to be pretty buildable. I
hope to do a more in depth review of this soon as I have only being using it
just under two weeks now.
Mix Concealer again is something I haven’t properly used yet, just the once
to try as I want to finish up using some other ones first but from that first
use I can already say that I liked it. I realised that I picked this up in
shade 52 which is darker than the foundation, or is supposed to be but as I
said before I think the shades are quite similar.
Has anybody else tried these
products? What about the Flower Perfection Foundation?
