Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundtion Review (New Packaging)

Hia Ladies! Today I'm going to share my thoughts on the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation.

Bourjois has recently repackaged their Healthy Mix Foundation. It now has a glass bottles. I personally preferred the plastic container as it was lighter in my makeup bag, although the glass bottle isn't heavy.

I found the shade range to be very bad for fair skinned ladies. It only has a few shades and they cater more to darker skin tones. Shade 51 is the lightest shade and for me that's even too dark and very yellow based. For reference I would be a NW10 in mac. I would say this foundation has light coverage but can be built to medium. Its a dream to blend and doesn't take a lot of work which is great if your in a hurry.

It claims to give 16 hours wear but I found that four ours in it started to wear around my mouth. But everywhere else it lasted well. I have very dry/combination skin so I wouldn't recommend this to someone with oily skin unless you are going to set it as it wouldn't be that long lasting.

It has a fruity smell, but it goes away once applied. Its not a terrible smell and I actually quite liked it.

Skin Reactions:
I had no breakouts from this and I do have sensitive skin so I was happy with that.

Overall I wouldn't repurchase this myself. I didn't really enjoy it. Simply because I'm so pale and it didn't match and also I prefer a fuller coverage foundation. But I would say give this a go if you like light coverage and are looking for a yellow toned foundation.

Have a good day where ever you are and most of all remember your beautiful :) :) xoxoxoxoxox
