My makeup collection has always lacked a good, lightweight foundation or tinted moisteriser. I fell head over heels in love with the Nars Sheer Glow Foundation back in December but since then my skin has cleared up and the weather has warmed up meaning my skin has been craving a lighter base but with the same dewy finish.
So, after hearing lots of hype about the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation I went into Superdrug and picked it up in the shade N52 - Vanilla along with the matching Healthy Balance Powder.
The foundation aims to give a flawless complexion whilst leaving the skin luminous and hydrated. It contains apricot to give radiance, melon for hydration and apple to protect youthful skin, giving it a fruity fragrance which I actually quite like. The foundation is enriched with crystalline pigments which evens out the complexion whilst also giving a natural glow. I've heard from other bloggers that this foundation has low coverage which was just what I was after. As promised the finish is luminous and healthy looking which I love! As expected the coverage is low, therefore if you have blemished skin this product won't give you a flawless finish. However, on good skin days this stuff is amazing! It looks just like healthy glowing skin! This is going to be a summer staple for me.
The matchingpowder is very finely milled and aims to give a matte finish to the skin but with a natural and healthy glow. I really love the packaging of this because the compact is well made and feels durable (unlike my great, but flimsy Rimmel Stay Matte Powder). It also has a large mirror which will be great on a night out or in my handbag. It also contains fruit extracts such as Yuzu fruit which helps to prevent shine and Sharon fruit to hydrate the skin. As this powder is so finely milled it blends into the skin seamlessly and doesn't look cakey or heavy at all. However, this powder is quite a bit more expensive than most drugstore powders, is it worth the money? I'm not sure, it's nice but I would rather invest my money in a lipstick or mascara.
