Review | Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation

Ok, firstly can i just say this review is incredibly overdue. After using the Rimmel wake me up foundation for ages, i decided i wanted to try a new foundation. So, i had a little look online, but from being a fond watcher of beauty YouTube videos i knew about majority of them.
I had heard a lot about the Bourjois healthy mix foundation, but apparently the serum was better. So i went to boots and picked one up for £7.99 (good old boots offer)


Now whenever i pass boots i always go in to see if this is on offer and then bulk purchase it because i know its my favourite and i will love it forever. Saying this, i still buy Rimmel wake me up as well, that will always be a firm favourite too.


Compared to Rimmel wake me up, this has a very low coverage, its a lot more natural, perfect for the summer. However, the coverage is very buildable. I usually apply about 2 pumps and a bit to get a good amount of coverage. I apply it using the real techniques buffing brush because its better for lighter foundations. Bourjois definitely don't have the best range of shades available but with a bit of bronzer your fine. I have mine in shade 52 Vanilla, which i believe is the second shade. It matches perfectly and after about 5 minutes its oxides to match.


This is a 'gel' foundation, meaning it is much lighter on your face but applies so easily for a really natural, radiance, awakening boost which i absolutely love. It also really wakens your skin up and gives it an extra boost. Its not a cakey foundation, super light and very natural, but buildable!
The finish is semi-matte, which i love. However without any powder and an extra pump this foundation is incredibly dewy, which i adore! This is such a versatile foundation.



This definitely gives my skin such a glowing boost and evens out my uneven complexion.
I cannot praise it enough, its incredible! It also smells amazing, i know that's not always a box to tick when your looking for foundation, but its an extra bonus!
With a primer and some make up setting spray this foundation could easily last you all day and most of the night, it really is a great lasting all round foundation.
