Happy Sunday lovelies!
I hope you’re all having a good one. I had quite a heavy one last night! We went into London and went to a comedy club (The 99 comedy club), which I highly recommend – I laughed continuously for about 2 and a half hours!
Anyway, I wanted to share this post with you, because I have become obsessed. I love it so much when you find the perfect foundation and guess what it’s a high street one and isn’t that expensive at all.
I’m one of those who doesn’t mind how much they spend on a foundation (within reason) because I think it is really key for my complexion to have a good base which offers full coverage. For years I have been using Estee Lauder’s Double Wear (and I do still swear by it) but at £32 a go, I wanted to try and find a good drug store one.
I asked my lovely Twitter followers which one they’d recommend for a full coverage, dewy finish foundation and a few came back with this one – Bourjous, Healthy Mix. So, I decided to give it a go, and it was only £10.
All I can say is – THANK YOU to all those beauties who recommended this. I LOVE IT.
I picked this up in shade ‘beige’ and it is a really good match for my skin tone! As I mentioned I wanted a foundation that leaves a dewy finish because although I love double wear, it is a matt finish and I do have dry skin so I wanted one that wouldn’t dry matt.
Although it leaves a dewy finish it isn’t intense so I wouldn’t say it leaves your face looking sweaty and clammy, but instead leaves more a glow. Also, I swear it smells like strawberries (bonus).
The product claims the following: Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation contains vitamins C, E and B5 that give skin an instant anit-fatigue effect. The hydrating formula keeps your complexion radiant and even for up to 16 hours
To be honest, I completely agree. It lasted all day and all night and still looked flawless when I got in at 2am this morning!
If you’ve tried this before, I’d love to know your thoughts. Or any other drug store full coverage foundations you can recommend? I’d love to hear!
