Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation

Since the age of 14 I’ve been wearing makeup, this started off with cheap not so good products resulting in very bad skin from then I have always used higher end foundations, Estee Lauder, Chanel etc. However about a year ago I thought I would venture into the world of high street foundations once again with Rimmel Wake Me Up, some people love it but me, not so much, read about my experience here. Basically my skin had never been so bad and I decided not to use it again, this kind of put me off any high street foundations. However a couple of months ago whilst in boots there was a 3 for 2 deal on Bourjois and I couldn’t quite decide if I wanted to give the Healthy Mix Serum a chance or not but I picked up shade 51 and decided it deserved a go.
I am so glad I did, honestly! This foundation alone has completely changed my mind about high street foundations because I absolutely love it! First off the packaging isn’t really anything special it’s a simple plastic pump bottle. It does its job. Its described as being light to medium coverage but I’d definitely say it’s more medium for me and builable in those areas where I need a bit of extra coverage. The colour actually matches my skin fairly well considering drugstore foundations are usually too dark for me. I’ve seen many bloggers say it’s a dupe for the Chanel Pro Lumiere (the predecessor of Perfection Lumiere) and I would have to agree it is very similar it even has that same none cosmetic scent that Chanel has. In terms of wear I can’t say it definitely lasts on my skin for 16 hours but with a good primer it doesn’t budge for a good 12 hours at least and on my skin thats pretty good!
I honestly cannot fault this foundation at all I am truly in love with it and at a third of the price of Chanel, how could I not be.
