For today's post I'd like to review one of my favorite foundations and concealers! I'm talking about Bourjois, a french brand of makeup and skin care products.
I've been using Bourjois products ever since I was a teenager, I remember my first Bourjois products being a lipstick and an eyeshadow. I was always super impressed with the quality of this brand.
Bourjois is actually considered "Chanel's little sister" as it's owned by the same company and a lot of formulas and textures they use are pretty much the same! Bourjois also dedicates a lot of attention to the packaging: It's always fun, colorful and easy to use!
As far as prices, it can be considered a drugstore brand, so there's another reason why I love it! :-)
One of my favorite Bourjois foundations is definitely Healthy Mix Radiance Reveal Foundation because it gives my skin a very natural, luminous finish, yet it's long lasting and I don't need to touch it up every couple of hours.
This foundation will just beautify your skin and it's suited for all skin types. It's based on fruit therapy, as it contains fruit extracts that will help in boosting up the radiance and healthy look of your skin.
It is a very light foundation and it blends well into the skin. If you want better coverage, you can always use your heavy duty concealer with it, to cover up any blemishes or imperfections.
My foundation shade is #52 Vanilla.
This product retails at CCA 15€ and it's definitely worth the price!
I like my Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer more than anything else for my under eye area. It's a light concealer that will brighten up the under eye area and it won't sit in the fine lines!
Because of it's fruit therapy properties, it stimulates micro-circulation and makes your under eye area appear more awake and youthful!
I use the concealer in the lightest shade #51 Light Radiance because that way it acts as an illuminator!
I wouldn't use it on my blemishes though, because I feel its texture isn't suitable for covering up these skin problems (look to get an antibacterial- anti-inflammatory concealer that is specially designed for the blemish problems!).
The Healthy Mix concealer retails at CCA 10€ and it'll really last you a long, long time, as you only need a small amount of product to get the best result!
To find out more about these products and to see a little demo on how I apply them and how they look on my skin, check out my youtube review that I have prepared for my Glam Express blog readers! :-)
I hope you liked this review and that it was helpful!
