The Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation and the Bourjois Healthy Mix Correcting Concealer are two of my favorite face products at the moment. I was starting to swear off liquid foundations as the weather was just getting too hot and humid, but I couldn’t resist the Bourjois counter in Vietnam. It’s a little bit more pricey than retail in the UK, but it’s worth the little extra, because these are just so good!
I got both in shade 53, which is 53 Light Beige for the foundation and 53 Dark Radiance for the concealer. I don’t like going lighter on foundations, so I didn’t want to risk it and got one of the darker shades available there. The consistency of the serum foundation is very smooth, though it’s not runny. It’s a gel, to be more specific.
The concealer takes a bit of work. I like to warm it up between my fingers. I use it both on my under eye darkness and some blemishes, and it works great for both. It doesn’t really last very long on big, red blemishes, though. It also tends to cling to dry patches.
Here I am wearing both:
The coverage is decent, though I set it with a translucent powder. The lasting power is also quite good. I wore this on a tour in Vietnam and I looked pretty good after squat-shuffling inside a very small tunnel in Asian humidity, if a little sweaty.
Overall, I’m pretty happy with these purchases. I don’t think I would purchase them again, based on the confuzzling animal testing policy, but I will enjoy using them up. 🙂
Loooove Bourjois! I hoarded these on my last trip and am so glad I did 🙂
Also, been meaning to ask: how’s your ordering experience from Asos?
I LOVE ASOS! Takes quite a while for the stuff to actually get to ME, though. Like it stews in the post office for a long time before I get a notice to pick my package up.
I love the coverage on you! Flawless!😘
Thank you, Tina. 🙂
Looks great on youuu! I love the smell of that foundation hehe.
Thank you! I quite like it also. 🙂
You look thinner here! And you did something nice to your hair 😀 (I think?)
What have you got on your eyes? 🙂
I think the angle + the camera I used. 🙂
It’s bareMinerals’ The Happy Place!
I see this foundation being used a lot by Japanese beauty bloggers. I might give it a shot, but coverage is a huge issue for me so I might have to look for a heavy-duty concealer to go with it muna. I love your eyemake here, by the way!
Hi Chai, I use the matching concealer and it’s my favorite so far. 🙂 Thank you, it’s bareMinerals’ The Happy Place!
Love Bourjois’ foundations. I have this in 52 🙂
I bought my friend a bottle in 52 also! I like picking darker shades, but I think it’s a good match for me 😀
Wow this foundation looks amazing on you wish we had that brand in the states!
I always assumed that you did! I think you can order these off of ASOS.com, if you don’t mind guesstimating your shade.
i’m always curious about this foundation – always hear so many great things about it! 🙂
It’s quite nice! I wore it again today after going on quite a long liquid foundation ban.
