Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, Concealer and Powder
Originally published on 6th March 2017
On a recent trip to my local Superdrug I wandered past the ever-so-tempting Bourjois counter and noticed a few new items on the stand. The Healthy Mix Serum Foundation in the shade 52 Vanille was one of my favourite drugstore/high-street foundations and after it ran out a while back I never got round to repurchasing another. Bourjois have now released a new and improved Healthy Mix Anti-Fatigue Foundation with up to 16 hour wear, boasting a radiant complexion and with a combination of vitamins C, E and B5. And with £2 off and 3 for 2, why not give it a go?!
I also, seeing as it there was 3 for 2 on offer, decided to give the Healthy Mix Concealer in the shade Light 01 a try. Like it’s foundation counterpart, the concealer contains ‘a unique blend of vitamins that erases imperfections and signs of fatigue’. I’ve been on the look out for a more affordable concealer, as opposed to using my favourite Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer which is £19, this concealer is just £7.99 and is included within the 3 for 2 offer.
Finally, to complete the set I repurchased the Healthy Balance Unifying Powder in the shade 52 Vanille for £8.99, which claims to provide 10 hours matte finish and a natural, healthy glow. I hit pan on my old compact a few weeks ago and kept meaning to pick another one of these up when I found the chance, so seeing as I was already getting the foundation and concealer, I thought I’d pick up another knowing that I would get quite a lot of use out of it. I wouldn’t say it provides a 10 hour matte finish though, as for me, my skin tends to get a bit oily throughout the day and so I find it is best to carry it with me for any touch-ups I might need. The compact is a perfect handbag size and comes with a big mirror inside, ideal for travelling around with me both to work and to university.
