Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation | £9.99
My absolute favourite foundation is Bourjois Healthy Mix. I've mentioned my love for MAC's Studio Fix Fluid before but this foundation just pips it to the post for my favourite foundation title. I wore Dior Forever foundation today and felt absolutely caked in the stuff, and I looked caked in it too, which is never a good look! This only reconfirmed my love for Bourjois Healthy Mix. I like it for the following reasons:-
Ease of application. | Can be haphazardly applied and still look great. | Nice range of colours for my skintone. | Lasts all day. | Looks natural and doesn't cake up or separate. | Smells nice. | Affordable. | Handy packaging (pump). | Medium to full coverage. | Buildable coverage. | Photographs well.
I have repurchased this and will continue to do so. I used to be a little embarrassed about using it when I have the likes of MAC, NARS, Dior and Chanel in my makeup drawer, but if none of them can perform as well as this foundation, I don't care any more! For reference I wear the shade 52 but I have found that most shades (bar the darkest of course) work for me, give or take a bit of St Tropez!
I wear this foundation 9 times out of 10, and after my awful experience with Dior Forever today, wont be swapping it for another anytime soon.
