Now this is something I've been meaning to review for a while now.  I must have bought it 4-6 weeks ago, maybe longer, but as I'm not wearing foundation all that much right now, it's taken me a while to get around to reviewing it.

This is the 2nd foundation from Bourjois that I own, with the other one being the healthy mix serum. It claims to give you a flawless complexion for 16 hrs, and with fruit therapy formulas to help enrich your complexion including: apricot for radiance, melon for hydration and apple to 'protect your youth'.  Both foundations are the same shade, Light Vanilla - No 51.  You get a pretty typical 30ml of product for your £9.99 which is pretty reasonable, and it comes in a pump dispenser (wooo).

For me, this foundation gave me a beautiful near-matte finish with a slight dewey glow - definitely a radiant glow.  It reminds me of the NARS sheer glow foundation, while I haven't had full bottle of it (sad face) I did get a good sized sample over the counter which lasted me for about 10-14 uses and this has a very similar coverage and finish.

I always set my foundation with powder and need to blot throughout the day, thanks to having oily skin - but some foundations tend to make me need to blog a hell of a lot more, and this didn't do that, I was only having to blog my t-zone and chin once every couple of hours.  The coverage remained good from application (about 7am) up until about dinner time (about 7pm) - then, for me, it started to go a little patchy, this might not have happened if I hadn't been blotting though.

It's quite a thick formula but blends and spreads really well.  I use 1 pump for each cheek, half a pump for my chin and less than that for my nose and about 1 pump (maybe just under) for my forehead, and then I blend it all in with my Sigma F80.  You can see from the pic where it's just on half my face how well it's evened out my skin and covered freckles and little red marks.

Overall I love this foundation - it's become one of my go-to foundations (depending on what type of skin day I'm having), it's either this, or my Makeup Forever photo-ready foundation or my Makeup Revolution 'The One' foundation.  Bourjois are knocking it out of the park with their great launches once again!

  1. I do keep meaning to try this foundation as I have in the past been quite the fan of them from Bourjois.
