Hello My beauties I hope you are all well. I am tending to sickly kiddies at the moment the poor things are running temperatures and have a chest infection awww the joys of the winter sicknesses :(. Hopefully they will pick up soon as I hate to see them unwell.
You all know at this stage that I am a huge huge fan of the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation I have been ever since seeing Sineady Cady's from The Makeup Chair review on it well over a year ago. I always seem to go back to it even after taking a break to try different foundation. Then I heard early this year that the "old version" was been discontinued NOOOOOOOOOO . That day I went straight into Boots and stocked up on my shade I got 3 bottles in total and was happy. Of course when they ran out there was More panic!!!!! That ment I finally had to convince myself to try the New Bourjois Radiance Reveal Healthy Mix Foundation which made me edgy because to be honest once you are used to something its very hard to like another dont you agree!!!!!! Anyways I thought mmmmm I will give it a go after all Bourjois has been impressing me quite alot lately and hopefully the only thing they changed was the bottle and not the formula
To remind you what the only packaging looked like check the picture below
Well the first thing I noticed that changed was in fact the bottle to an even bottle in my opinion as it is now glass instead of plastic :) It looks more presentable and more expensive looking :) :)
The pump is basically the same thank goodness as I love a foundation with a pump its so much more hygienic and more controllable.
Bourjois’ new Radiance Reveal Healthy Mix foundation is enriched with a fruit therapy formula to enhance your complexion.
Apricot for radiance
Melon for hydration
Apple to protect your youth
It is also enriched with crystalline pigments to even out the complexion while letting in the natural light for that healthy looking glow.
I have to say I found the Foundation no different in scent I get a slight floral scent but nothing OTT and to be honest Its practically non existent when on the face which is a good thing as I hate any sort of cosmeticy scented products near my face or lips.
The consistency is a little more runny than the old version which in fact is nicer as it applies a lot better in my eyes. I find I apply my foundation alot quicker than before. I apply with my Blank Canvas Flat Top F20 Brush and its looks amazing either that or I use my amazing Beauty blender also from Blank Canvas
In the summer when i was all Tanned hence the word WAS I was in the shade 53 but with it been November my tan has faded a bit so I opted for the shade 52 which was my normal shade before the summer.
52 is the 2nd lightest shade in the range. As you can see it has a yellow tone to it where as the older version had more of a neutral tone.
When i first applied this I found it to be way too pale for me. It did oxidise a little but still looked very pale so the next time I applied it I mixed with with my near gone number 53 and its the perfect shade. I know I will become paler in the winter so until then I will continue to mix :)
I found this absolutely lovely against my skin, very lightweight like as if I am not wearing any foundation at all. I am still getting medium coverage from this foundation which is exactly what i wanted. What I love more about this foundation is that it does not soak into my fine lines or large pores its amazing I love it :)
I also recommended this to someone last week and she has reported back saying she is in love with this too.
I absolutely love that this is giving me the healthy glow it promises because with the weather change and the heat in the house it has dried out my skin a little and I need that extra boost which is what I am getting :) :)
Another great thing about this foundation is that it photographs brilliantly even with flash photography :)
Here is a photo of my wearing the foundation without it been mixed
Here is a picture of it mixed with shade 53 using flash photography (This picture was actually taken by a professional photographer with a huge camera with a huge flash) I am in the front row in the cream top :) :)
Overall I am very pleased with the foundation and glad to say there is not a huge difference made to the formula I highly recommend this to everyone to try. Anyone that I recommended the foundation to has always reported back to me saying they love it. For the price you are getting an amazing foundation which only needs a pump or a pump and a half to do the entire face.
You can purchase this foundation in most drugstores
and also from Boots.ie
For anyone who is looking for a foundation thats
Gives a natural looking glow
Easy to apply
Does not soak into fine lines and pores this is surely the one for you
The only downfall???? There is not enough shades to choose from. The shades available would be suitable for pale and medium toned girls anyone with dark skin tones will be disappointed. Hopefully that will change soon :)
Have you tried this foundation yet?
Until Next Time
Lots of Love Luck and Laughter
