BEAUTY: Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in Vanilla

I had heard so many good things about the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation from beauty bloggers, so when I saw it on the Fragrance Direct website for only £2.99 it was the perfect opportunity to try it out! I've have read that this foundation is actually best for the summer months, as it's a lighter foundation and creates an almost 'glow' but nevertheless I thought I'd try it first in the winter!

This foundation is a much lighter coverage compared to my usual foundation (Estee Lauder Double Wear), which did take some getting used to. You don't achieve the flawless look that fuller coverage foundation's give you, which personally I prefer during the winter months. Our poor skin goes through a lot in the winter, with the constant changes of temperature, so I like to have a fuller coverage foundation. However when the summer comes a long I'm a fan of tinted moisturisers and I think this foundation will become a firm favourite of mine throughout those sunny summer months.

It blends nicely but I found it didn't soak in very quickly, I think this is part of the 'dewy, glowy' look this foundation creates. My skin did look considerably more glowing, which again I think will suit the summer months more. With the 'rosy cheek' look already around throughout the winter, I don't really want to look 'glowing' as well - slight overload!   

Have you tried this foundation?

Feel free to comment :)

  1. I've tried this exact shade and I loved it, it was light weight and gave just enough coverage for a natural look :o) Xx
