Product Review

Let's talk about foundations for a second. For the longest time I've struggled with finding the right foundation for my skin type.  Either they are too drying, too oily, too powdery, too yellow, too pink, too sheer, too get the idea. There is always something I usually do not like about my foundation. Maybe it is because there is no perfect for everyone type of product out there. My skin type is extremely dry. When I try on new foundations, I often find they cling to my T zone, especially between my eyebrows and around my nose. You can see the flakes on my skin, which is so unflattering.

A couple of months ago, I saw a YouTuber talk about her favorite "Drugstore" (or affordable) foundation, and she mentioned the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum. In the United States, this is not a brand that is sold at the drugstore, but it is on the UK and I believe in Europe. I ordered mine on Amazon.

Let me tell you, this has become my favorite foundation! First of all, I have to be clear, this is a light to medium foundation. If you are looking for a matte perfect skin type foundation, this is not for you. But for me, I was looking for something light that I could wear on my day to day makeup looks. I usually go for the "no-makeup" makeup and this foundation is perfect for it. The consistency if very liquid. I find it applies best with your hands. One thing I love about it is the fact that it smells like pomegranate, but not an overwhelming scent. I got mine in the shade light vanilla and it matches perfectly. I feel like this is a dupe for the bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Creme. I used to love that foundation but lately it just doesn't stick to my skin. This formula does not break me out, and it lasts all day without disappearing from my face. My concealer also applies nicely on it and it does a pretty good job of make my skin look even. It is a bit tacky, so I lightly set it with translucent powder.

Anyways, I feel like I want to dump all my other affordable foundations in the garbage and just use this one. It looks like second skin. Just.In.Love 

I hope you found this review helpful. Until next time, stay gorgeous!


  1. I want to try neat that it smells like pomegranate!

  2. I love that! It is not super overpowering, which is good. It's like a nice treat to smell it while you apply it, but by the time you are done with your makeup the smell is very faint!!! :)


Please be nice
