I had a quick browse on Powder khổng lồ see if there’d been any new foundations released that I hadn’t yet heard about and kiểm tra on whether the Bourjois Healthy mix Serum Gel foundation was recommended as I thought it would be a good match, and what sort of coverage I could expect. A quick check confirmed my thoughts, so I drove into town to pop lớn my local Boots and pick a bottle up. I chose the colour Light Vanilla (Vanille Clair) as it seemed lượt thích the best match for my fair skin.

The foundation is labelled as a 16 hour radiance booster that gives a revived & even complexion. It’s made from a vitamin-rich fruit therapy formula (containing litchi, goji berries and pomegranates) which helps to smooth out the complexion leaving it looking even và refreshed and is available in six shades. The foundation is a gel formula and I’d say it’s a natural to lớn medium coverage depending on how you apply it.

The vị trí cao nhất few ingredients in the foundation are Aqua, Dimethicone and Cyclopentasiloxane – so water & silicones. This is how the formula gets it’s gel texture. Usually I’m really not a fan hâm mộ of silicones in my beauty products, after all, my skin was very oily before I started my Accutane treatment. However, since taking the tablets và noticing my skin drying out, I knew a silicone formula would be great khổng lồ glide over the dry areas without sticking.

First of all, the foundation smells really fresh – it really reminds me of another product I’ve used in the past but I can’t for the life of me remember which it was. Secondly, the texture has a lot of slip khổng lồ it, so depending on what you use to lớn apply it, you’ll need to lớn spend a little time working it in. I firstly tried the foundation on its own on đứng top of my regular moisturiser using my damp beauty blender to apply it. In all honesty, I really didn’t lượt thích how it applied to lớn my skin – it felt thin, watery và took some real working in khổng lồ get the coverage that I wanted. It also looked very wet on my skin which I really didn’t like. I enlisted the help of my Senior Chief Tester to try it out too & she said exactly the same – thin, watery và hard lớn cover imperfections. Now, lớn be fair to the foundation, I am so used khổng lồ a thicker, heavier coverage foundation, but still, I’ve used tinted moisturisers and the lượt thích in the past that I’ve much preferred.

I phối the super shiny bits of my face with my favourite Ben Nye Neutral Set & went about my day. The foundation creased like crazy under my eyes through the day but the rest of my face stayed intact & did look fresh for over 12 hours.

The next day, I decided khổng lồ try using a pump of the foundation mixed with my regular MAC Studio Fix Fluid foundation and it was like a match made in heaven! It applied much better, the ‘wet’ appearance looked more like a healthy glow và it felt much nicer on my skin than it had done the day before. I also made sure not to take the foundation up lớn my lower lash line và instead solely used my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer there. Once again, my makeup lasted for over 12 hours with zero need for retouching.

Ever since I bought the foundation, I’ve worn it every single day & so far, it hasn’t let me down. From mega hot days running around Manchester and going khổng lồ photo shoots, khổng lồ working on bridal makeovers & walking the dogs, it has stayed well và truly put.

For you ladies that like a more natural coverage foundation that’s super hydrating, I’m sure you’d love this. It’s a great summer foundation và the smell will remind you of hot summery days too!
