Okay, so the most difficult task in buying the right makeupÂ is to pick up the foundation which suitsÂ your every need. I know many of you guys would not be havingÂ as much trouble as I have in buying foundations but I reallyÂ dread it as I have wasted a lot of money on the wrong ones.Â Many of you would have seen Lisa Eldridgeâ€™s videos and ifÂ you have you might be aware of the soft spot she has forBourjois foundations.
Since she praises BourjoisÂ foundations so much, I thought of giving them a try and wentÂ to buy the iconic Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation but the SAÂ instead recommended this one and was all praises for itsÂ benefits. I have been fooled by them so many times but evenÂ then I picked this one because of the magic words likeÂ Natural, Detox and Organic. Read on to know my experience
with this foundation below:
So, first of all this does notÂ contain Silicone, it may sound like a good news and in a wayÂ it is but my dear, blending this is such a hard work thatÂ the lazy girl in me somewhat hates this foundation. ByÂ difficult, I mean really really difficult.
I have always hated myself forÂ buying the wrong shade of foundation, theÂ SAâ€™s in India are so determined to make you fair that they
will make you buy the lighter shade. I am so frustrated withÂ this now that I tell them before even starting that they do
not have to worry about making me look white, I am happyÂ with my complexion so just gimme my shade! So, back to myÂ story, I ended up buying a slight darker shade this time asÂ I was so much scared of buying a lighter one.Â This does not look bad on me
as it adjusts in some time and starts looking natural andÂ matches myskin tone, the shade isÂ own is N 57 Hale Bronze. I feel the shade numbers are notÂ the same as the Healthy mix ones so even if you areÂ confident about your shade match in Healthy mix, it is a
better idea to swatch this one before buying.Â
When it comes to shades,Â Bourjois offers quite a good range in these and you will
find a good match in this range.Â When I first applied thisÂ foundation, it was horrible! It did not blend and I couldÂ see patches on my skin. This lay in my closet for a whileÂ and I tried this once again on a weekend when I had ampleÂ amount of time and my skin was well primed and this blended.Â And man, I loved the finish it gave to my skin. Almost aÂ â€˜my skin but betterâ€™ feel. So from my experience, I
would suggest you that though it is a good foundation andÂ gives a good finish stay away with it if you have dry skin.
I have combination skin and I avoid using this in winters.Â It has a medium coverage which is buildable. But I would notÂ suggest to build up the coverage as it might look cakey,Â and concealers can do theÂ rest!
It comes in a plastic bottleÂ and only a little quantity is required to cover both faceÂ and neck. Staying power of this foundation is commendable asÂ it stays for the whole day and even at the end of the day,Â my face looks fresh. When I wear this, it is hard to notice
that I am wearing a foundation. The skin looks good, but notÂ made up and I love this about any foundation.Â We have been so used to
products with Silicones that the first impression of thisÂ foundation is not great but once you figure out how to useÂ this, you might actually find this to a great find! Just useÂ this on a well moisturized skin and if it looks a bit patchyÂ after application, just a bit of rose water or even waterÂ can be used to blend this. Once on, this goes a longÂ way.
Price:I gotÂ this for 980 INR but Bourjois has hiked the price recentlyÂ so not sure if the price has increased since I boughtÂ this.
Let me sum up the pros andÂ cons for you below.
