Bourjois Healthy Mix Gel Foundation & Concealer

 Bourjois’s healthy mix Gel foundation is a favourite amongst bloggers and make-up artists. Many comparisons have been drawn between it and Chanel’s Pro Lumiere. They smell all most identical and have a very similar dewy finish. The only difference is the price… Pro Lumiere retails at roughly £35 while Healthy mix can be picked up for just £8.

There are a good choice of colours and ’51’ matched my skin perfectly. Its creamy texture slides on comfortably with your fingers or a brush. One pump will cover your whole face. It provides good even coverage and leaves the skin feeling moisturised and looking illuminated. It smells delicious. Fruity and fresh and not too sweet.

This foundation is suitable for all skin types but oily skin types could use some translucent powder to matt out any extra shine.

The concealer is of the same formula but a little bit thicker for even more coverage. It works very nicely under the eyes and can also be used to create light around the nose.

This is probably the best high street foundation out there.

  1. Hello Waxandkohl,
    Thanks for the above, Is this basis good for sensitive/oily mixture epidermis? We have observed so much regarding it.

    • Hello,

      Thank you for your comment. No I wouldn’t advise this foundation for oily skin. It’s better for normal/dry skin types as it has a dewy moisturising finish. You would be better suited to Bare minerals foundation – Great coverage, no excess oil, good for sensitive skin. Its a powder formula so you would need to apply with a clean kabuki brush and I would advise using an oil free moisturiser underneath such as La Roscha Posay’s Effaclar duo treatment. Another good foundation is Mac’s Studio fix powder which I used a lot for photo shoots. It will give you a beautiful complexion. If you prefer a liquid you might like Mac’s Match master or Revlon’s colour stay foundation which is in the same price range as Bourjois’s Healthy Mix.

      Hope this is helpful!
