Hello my beauties,

I hope you’ve all had a great weekend! This post is long overdue. I’m reviewing the Healthy Mix Serum Foundation from Bourjois today.

THE DEETS:

This foundation is a gel formula, paraben free, and has antioxidants added. It also claims to have a 16 hour wear time. I got it at Shoppers Drugmart for $29CAD. Jaclyn Hill also just featured this in her Best of Beauty 2015 video-score!

THE PROS:

The gel formula is so great-not too runny not too thick

-Gives a natural finish, not too matte or dewy

-Smells like apples when you put it on!

-Has a pump. So essential.

-Lasts all day, fades naturally without looking patchy

THE CONS:
-I wish it had a tad more coverage

SO…?

You can probably guess by the ONE con that this stuff is great! It is my absolute go-to foundation for day to day. I love my YSL Touche Eclat Foundation (stay tuned for a review), but I don’t wear it to school unless I have plans later in the day as I feel like it’s a waste to just wear it to class!

This gives me a really natural look- very similar to using Bare Minerals powder foundation, but more hydrating. I do use concealer over top of problem areas, but I’m fine with that because I prefer to have my natural skin peek through. I highly recommend this for the day to day, and it’s very comfortable and weightless on the skin.
4.5/5

    I don’t see much of Bourgois where I live (San Francisco) but I remember I had a foundation by them when they were sold at Sephora. Loved it. Good review, J! – Trace

    Such a great review, thanks for this! I’ve been debating this foundation for a while now, and you’re not the first person to rave about it so I think it’s about time I give it a go!

    xo,

    Great review! Maybe I should try this one because I love ysl touche eclat foundation too. They reformulated the ysl one this or end of last year, have you tried the new version?

      Thanks! I bought my YSL foundation in November so maybe I got the new formula? I love it! It’s more dewy and gives more coverage than the Bourjois Foundation so it’s better for full on makeup! xo J

        Yes, the coverage is amazing! I also like that it feels so light on the skin while still looking flawless. The new version of ysl touche eclat has spf 22 and is called “radiance awakening foundation” vs the old one’s spf 19 and “illuminating foundation”.

        • January 18, 2016 / 10:58 pm

          Yes I agree! Hmmm which one do you prefer??

          • January 18, 2016 / 11:28 pm

            I only tried the old version and so far it’s the best foundation I’ve used! The new one isnt available in my country yet but I’m waiting impatiently to try it!

    The Bourjous Healthy Mix Foundation (not serum) does have more coverage and also looks gorgeous on the skin! I compared it to some high end foundations when I was testing foundations on in store and I couldn’t tell the difference between them. I was comparing it to YSL and Lancome believe it or not. The coverage was the same and the finish was also similar. It leaves your skin looking so gorgeous ! Next time try the regulat Healthy Mix. BTW have you tried their concealer? It’s one of my favorites!

    Love this post! This foundation was just recommended to me by another blogger and after reading your review as well, I can not wait to purchase it! 🙂
