Holy Grails' #3: Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation



Hi lovelies! I hope you all are doing well. A while ago I started a series about my Holy Grails and even though it's been quite a while since I last shared some some of them today will be all about foundations. Finding the perfect foundation can be quite the challenge. There are countless foundations in the market with hundreds of different benefits, coverages and finishes and in order to find your holy grail you have to try a lot and figure out what suits you best. And even though I own many foundations (high end and low end) the Healthy Mix Serum by Bourjois happens to be the one that stood out to me the most. It is the perfect foundation for a day at the office or a night out with your friends and even better, it's drugstore. 

The Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation and retails for £10.99 in the UK and can be purchased in Boots or Superdrug. I'm not entirely sure where or if you can get hold of this brand in the US but you can purchase it on Feel Unique or Asos for about $18.00, same goes for Germany. It retails for about €15.00 on Feel Unique or Asos

According to the Bourjois the Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation is a radiance boosting foundation with a vitamin-rich fruit therapy formula (litchi, goji berries and pomegranates) that supposedly lasts for 16 hours without making you look shiny. The foundation comes in a plastic bottle with a pump to help get the right amount of product. 

I bought this foundation a few months ago when I visited some friends in London because I forgot my foundation at home. I heard many good things about it so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try out a beauty worlds' cult classic. And it holds up to every expectation. Even though it has this gel texture to it and is a lot thicker that the foundations I usually go for, it doesn't look heavy or cake-y at all. I use between one to two pumps for my face and neck and apply it with a foundation brush by Sephora (one of my absolute faves). It blends beautifully, covers up all imperfections and sets to a radiant finish. It makes you look super healthy and has a medium but buildable coverage. Even though I haven't worn it for 16 hours, I can say it is long lasting (10-12 hours). I have dry combination skin so I don't really need a powder for touch ups but I'd recommend some sort of setting powder if you are more on the oily side. 

I absolutely love this foundation and I've been wearing it almost every day since I got it. I can't recommend this foundation enough and I would love to know your thoughts on it. Have you tried it before? What do you think? xo, Marie
