Bourjois Haul!

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 this powder.

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.

The Healthy 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?

  1. Great picks, I found I had trouble with the shade choice so ending up getting both 51/52 and I blend them as I always felt 51 was too light and 52 too dark lol.

  3. I love healthy mix serum! I thought it gives enough coverage as it evens out my skin tone. It makes my skin look healthy as if I'm not wearing foundation :) And I love the fruity smell! I'm wondering if the concealer is good...once you've started using it please share your thoughts about the product! ;)

    1. It evens out mine too, I was unsure at first but I have decided it is perfect coverage for my skin :)

      I like the smell, I can't smell it once it is applied though. Once I start using the concealer I'll do a review :) xx
