Bourjois Healthy Mix

I got this +BourjoisUK Healthy Mix foundation on a whim as I'm usually disappointed by high street foundations, or they never have a colour pale enough for me. So I must admit when everyone raved about this a few months back I slightly ignored the hype. But after popping up the street a few weeks ago I saw a lighter shade I hadn't seen before.. so I grabbed it.

I chose the colour 'Vanilla' which is a light Mac NC15 sort of shade (if you know Mac shades well enough), I usually find they're still orangey even though they look light in the packaging. But this colour really stays the colour it seemed, and matches my skin perfectly.

It is a light coverage foundation but is really build-able. I need at least a medium coverage to cover all my scarring on my face as concealer alone just doesn't hide it as much as I'd like. It also leaves your skin looking beautiful and dewy (and healthy looking, ironically), so if you're more of a matte foundation lover this may not be your thing. It can be matted down a little with some powder but not completely.

I've found this foundation to last hours longer than my Estee Lauder Double Wear which I usually swear by! (I still love it though). I have quite oily skin by the afternoon too, so for a foundation to still be there nearing the afternoon I'm impressed. If you do need to reapply over it throughout the day it also blends really well, I've found putting foundation over foundation usually makes it go cakey, but not with this!

I've been really impressed with this foundation, especially seeing as I don't usually buy a thing from this brand! What's your favourite of their products?
