Foundation magic!

Eureka! I have made an amazing discovery!

Ladies, my long search for the perfect foundation ends here.

Allow me to explain:

After years of searching for a good foundation that had the right consistency, coverage, color, staying power and price, I was ready to give up and accept a life of obvious bad skin… Until I found this product.  I have tried various low end and high end foundations; cream, liquid and powder, with no avail. Many broke me out, did not have enough coverage, or did not match my skin tone. But today, I had my makeup since morning and I just got home (it’s evening) and I—for the first time in my life—received compliments about my skin endlessly. Some people who have seen me before honestly thought that my acne problem had gotten slightly better.

The foundation which I am referring to is affordable, had great coverage, stayed on all day, and even smelled AMAZING!

It’s ‘Healthy Mix’ by Bourjois.

This foundation is not new whatsoever, but it had made its way into one of the most favored foundations worldwide. It won a bunch of awards last year. Not surprising; even after a day I thought it was a star!
It claims to contain 4 radiance-boosting fruits which are apricot, melon, apple and ginger. It does boost your radiance, which is not necessarily a bad thing. If you have combination to oily skin like me, then you probably prefer a matte finish. But this foundation will not ever come across as oily.

If you do suffer from extremely oily skin, I still recommend this, but be sure to set your foundation with a mattifying powder. Occasionally, throughout the day, I did have to blot and touch up with a compact, but this happened only a couple of times for my nose.

All in all, I love this foundation! It comes in a great selection of shades too! I’m number 56 Light Bronze, and it just looks spot on for my skin tone!

Have you ever tried this foundation? What do you think?
