My Experience :

This product is a god sent ! :)
I find that Healthy Mix has a medium coverage which is quite ideal for those who has very little blemishes to cover and just want to even out skintone. This covers my imperfections well, but that’s because I don’t have hyperpigmentation and my scars fade off as well. I found that the formula was quite thin .It’s not mattifying, not completely dewy, but lies somewhere in between as far as finish goes. It looks very natural on skin. Great news – It hasn’t broken me out . yayyyy !!!

I was very surprised at how well this matches my skin tone.Now you’ll find it funny  but I have three shades 51 Light Vanilla , 52 Vanilla and 53 Light Beige . I’m actually shade 52 Vanilla .  In summer when I get tanned I use the darkest shade 53 & in winter I’m lightest.! DSC00526

This gives enough coverage without making me look orange and enhances my skin tone rather than caking over it and hiding it – perhaps this is what Bourjois mean when they say ‘reveal radiance’. It suits sensitive skin , works well on dry & combination skin . But if you have very oily skin make sure you blot with a tissue paper or oil blotting skin 10 mins after applying it .

I personally prefer using foundation brush which blends it in beautifully and evenly . You can use wet makeup sponge or even your fingers . The packaging of the bottle is great as the bottom of the bottle moves up as you use it this makes it a lot easier to know when you are about to run out. This foundation blends very easily, looks like second-skin, and never sunk into my pores or dry patches. It didn’t dry my skin out further and lasted all day. 12 hours later my makeup still looks great. It didn’t irritate my skin either. :) It last quite well , on my oily skin – as I mentioned it lasts for good 12 hrs of wear without greasing up, also it’s moisturising .

My favorite liquid foundation! Its affordable and so completly worth it. Thank you Bourjois!! :*

Pros :)
Last really long . 8/10 hrs
Good for skin .
It didn’t break me out or cause irritation . Good for sensitive skin .

Vacuum pump mechanism which is great to maintain your product .
For the price, this product is completely worth the money.

Cons :(

I will definitely be re-purchasing this product and would recommend it .
