New Updated Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation
This foundation has always been one of our favourite Drug store foundations so we were keen to test
out the new and improved version which hits the stores from January 2017.
It's always a bit of a worry when a brand changes an old fave because it usually means it's not as good, thankfully that is not the case here.
Basically it is the radiance properties which have changed and there's a bit of extra oomph from the combination of vitamin C, E and B5. The coated colour pigments bounce the light and provide a silky finish to the skin, almost like you have a pair of 5 denier tights over your face!
What we love about this foundation is that it's not a chalky foundation, which drug store foundations often are. If you were blindfolded and given this foundation and a high end foundation to feel I don't think you could feel the difference. The creamy texture massages into the skin without clinging and absorbs quickly without drying. The finish is a healthy glow that basically looks just like natural fresh skin.
Coverage is light but buildable to medium and would work well on all skins even the very dry.
There are some new shade extensions in number 50, 57, and 58. Great that drugstore brands are finally realising that we need more lighter and deeper tones in affordable foundation but still not as dark as we would like to see. With the exception of the shades in No 50 and 55 all of the shades have a warm yellow base.
The new healthy mix still has the pleasant fresh aroma and lasts just as well on the skin too.
This foundation will be available from January 20th at all the normal locations.
