Now you may or may not already know but Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation is my all time favourite drugstore foundations. In fact, I'd even go as far as saying that it's probably one of my all time foundations in general, it's that good! My favourite high end foundation is Nars Sheer Glow and I'd say this is on par with it!

The reason I love this foundation so much is because of the fantastic coverage it gives. If you're looking for a light, sheer, natural coverage then this is for you. If you're looking for a medium coverage, this is for you. If you're looking for a fuller've guessed it, this is for you and I'll explain why...

Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation adjusts to whichever coverage you want. With some foundations, if you want to build to get a fuller coverage, sometimes it can look cakey and thick but not with this product. By the way, I'm not in any way sponsored by Bourjois, I just purely love this foundation so much. So anyways, the coverage here is totally up to you!

What I love more than the coverage is the effect it gives. This foundation provides a sort of pearlescent effect, if you like, on the skin, giving an instantaneous glow and radiance boost. Due to the fact that it does provide a glowy/dewy look, if you have oily skin, as long as you set it with powder you should be fine! I always set mine with a bit of powder even though I have more dry skin - it just keeps it in place better and prolongs the longevity of the look! The information on the bottle even claims to give you hydrated and luminous skin, and I definitely agree that it does!

The price of this product is £9.99 from places like Boots and Superdrug but I try and wait until there's a good deal on before I stock up! I also use the colour shade 52 as I find this isn't too pale like shade 51 and it isn't too dark like shade 53!

Finally, as you may or may not know, Bourjois is owned by Chanel and is a fantastic dupe for Chanel foundations like Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua so I love how the Bourjois Health Mix has similarities to that! 

This was more of a basic post and the reason for that was because I just wanted to highlight how much I love this product and share with you a really great, affordable foundation!

Have you ever tried this product? What do you think of it? 

Thanks for reading!
