First Impressions: Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation

Recently, I decided it was time to branch out into newer foundations - I was looking for a product that would hopefully be let my skin breathe in the Summer months. After reading tonnes about the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation, I knew it really must be time to give it a go and see what all the fuss is about. I've trialed this on two or three occasions, and so now I'd like to share my first impressions with you.

Firstly, you'll be glad to know that Bourjois have included a very handy pump, therefore it means that the right amount of foundation will be dispensed and I (supposedly) won't waste much product. The shade range is, hmmm.. limited. I personally think that the lightest shade (Ivory) is only just about acceptable for my pale skin once I have a slight tan, otherwise, in Winter it'd be an obvious "oompa loompa". Not a good look.

It blends fairly nicely into my face buffed in with a brush like the Expert Face Brush by Real Techniques . I'd say the coverage is light/medium with a lovely radiant finish (don't worry it's not packed with "glitter") due to the fruit extracts. The wear time varies, in my opinion, in the warmer temperatures I'd say 5 hours max, in cooler weather I'd like to expect around 6/7 hours (also dependent on skin type).

Overall, I'd recommend the Bourjois foundation, particularly for Holidays where lighter coverage is a must-have. Oh and I have to mention how much I lovvve the scent, think raspberries/cranberries. Find the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation here, via boots.com - link.
