Review | Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation

It is time for another foundation review! I have been loving this for a long time now and no, not only because it smells amazing. When this first came out I was curious. A foundation with real fruit? I bought it to find out that this amazing, fruity foundation is pretty good. The only thing that bothered me was the colour range. N0 52 was too dark for me, so I switched to True Match by L’Oréal. Until about a year ago they came with a new packaging and a N0 51! I fell in love with its natural looking finish and the amazing smell that no other foundation, I know, has.

According to Bourjois: ''It gives your skin a radiance boost and leaves it looking flawless for up to 16 hours. Bourjois' new Radiance Reveal Healthy Mix foundation is enriched with a fruit therapy formula to enhance your complexion.

- Apricot for radiance
- Melon for hydration
- Apple to protect your youth

It is also enriched with crystalline pigments to even out the complexion while letting in the natural light for that healthy looking glow.''

So is this true? Let’s find out!

It gives a light to medium coverage. It depends on how much you apply and if you take time to blend it in. When I have an off day I just wear this and I am good to go. But on school and work days I want a bit more coverage on spots and scars. 
It gives a natural finish with a glowy, healthy sheen. Because I have combination/oily skin I powder my face. I would look like a shining disco ball if I didn't. If you have normal to dry skin this would look amazing!
The foundation should look flawless up to 16 hours. Well I do not know about that. After a couple of hours it just doesn't look as good as it did in the morning. I get an oily t-zone and think just slip and slide. So no, it doesn't look flawless for 16 hours.
The hydration part is definitely true. I do not get dry skin from this foundation. It also does not break me out in any way. Maybe this foundation isn't suited for my skin, but I love the formula and the scent so much! Color wise it is a bit darker than my skin. I have MAC concealer in NC15 and NW20 and it matches the NW20. But summer is coming up, so it might match me eventually!

Overall a wonderful foundation that creates healthy looking skin. The coverage is great and the scent is to die for. Why couldn't every foundation smell like that?

What are your thoughts on the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation?
