New in: Foundation holy grail

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation 

I haven't done a beauty post for a little while and although I shared a few thoughts on this Bourjois foundation in this empties post, I wanted to write a little more about why I like it so much; I've recently repurchased it and it's become my go-to foundation for everyday.

Made using a fruit therapy formula, this foundation provides an instant refreshing and revitalising effect. The scent of the product is lovely, it's a very light and fresh smell which remains quite natural and doesn't have any plastic-y or artificial undertones. I don't usually like scented products at all, especially on my face, but this one was completely bearable and actually quite pleasant!

Because the product is a gel foundation, it doesn't have any cakeyness or tendency to mask, but it still provides adequate coverage for everyday. It's almost like a level up from a BB cream; I don't like to pack on foundation day after day and whilst full coverage is great for an event or special occasion, if you are just looking to even out the skin tone, this will definitely provide that.

This foundation is anti-fatigue and it's also very long wearing. It claims to provide radiance to the skin for up to 16 hours and I would definitely credit it with keeping the coverage and finish flawless for that length of time; a pet peeve of mine is having to touch up my makeup at lunchtime so it's fantastic that I don't need to do that with this foundation. Transfer is minimal but it does happen so if you wear a lot of white, go easy when getting it near your face!

This foundation costs £10.99 and you can buy it here. I was such a die-hard fan of Estee Lauder's double wear foundation for several years but the £27 price tag made it rather unaffordable and I didn't like to use it everyday as I was always having to replace it! This is a great high street option and one that I will definitely buy time and time again.
