In the past few weeks, I have been testing out the reformulated healthy mix foundation and concealer from Bourjois. I can’t compare with the previous formula and this review will be based only on the new version and to learn more, keep on reading.
“The new anti-fatigue formula, which contains a combination of Vitamins, C, E and B5, helps complexion look healthy and radiant, with a divinely uniform finish.” – Bourjois.co.uk
*Healthy Mix Anti-Fatigue Concealer 52 Medium 7.8ml
This concealer has been a lifesaver for when I need to hide my dark circles, shadows and some redness. I have found that it has helped to brighten up the area and leave a radiant finish. The texture is lightweight and is applied easily with a sponge or your fingertips. This ensures the concealer blends well into the skin without leaving any streaks that can at times be experienced when using a makeup brush. I found the coverage to be medium but buildable and doesn’t cake up or hug around patches of dry skin. I also found it useful as a highlighter, as it is a lighter shade than my natural medium complexion, it worked well to bring light to other parts of my face. There are 3 shades available: light, medium and dark, and comes with a soft doe-foot applicator to easily disperse product straight to face or on the back of your hand.
*Healthy Mix Anti-Fatigue Foundation 55 Dark Beige 30ml
Just like its sidekick concealer, this foundation feels ever so lightweight even when it may seem like it could have a heavy texture. It can give a natural, next-to-skin finish, depending on how much is used. This shade was slightly darker on my skin, however when mixed with a bit of the lighter concealer, I could correct my shade. The coverage is medium to buildable and works in synergy with the concealer. It claims to lasts up to 16 hours and not that I wear makeup for very long, I found that for my skin type, it did last for a solid 6 hours. This is without the use of a setting powder or primer. The foundation leaves a lovely radiant glow that brightens the skin and gives that wake up refreshed look. There are 6 shades available: light vanilla, vanilla, light beige, beige, dark beige, light bronze and comes in a pump bottle.
