Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation
I want to buy a good foundation but am on a budget so don't want to spend more than £10. I have combination, pale skin - please help. Amy
The Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation is an excellent high street brand which retails at £10.99 but definitely worth the extra 99p!
It has a gel texture which means it's easy to blend and the light-medium coverage gives a slightly matt effect whilst giving the skin a radiance (Bourjois state that after 4 weeks of use you should see 69% more radiance to the skin). The colours have a slight yellow undertone which is always flattering and will neutralise any redness on the cheeks. There is a fruity smell but it's very pleasant and not overpowering. If you get an oily t-zone some powder on that area will make sure everything stays in place for the day.
For me the closest high-end brand to compare it with is the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua and I know a lot of people say Healthy Mix is just as good.
The downside is this foundation does not come in tones for darker skins - come on Bourjois, we need more colours for this great foundation.
