Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum - Reviewed!

I feel like foundation is one of those things that i'm always on the hunt to find the perfect one and never seem to. My favourite (and still is) has to be Bourjois Healthy Mix, when the released the serum version I thought I had to try it! When Boots had a deal on where when you bought a Bourjois foundation you got a free mascara I had to get it.

Now they made a few changes to the design of the bottle, changing from plastic to glass which I prefer also unlike Healthy Mix this doesn't show how much product you have used which is a shame because you have no real way of seeing if it's nearly run out. I do on a whole like the packaging, the bottle isn't too chunky so fits in a make-up bag nicely.  

It comes with a pump and is very easy to control how much product you use. I would say this foundation gives medium coverage and is definitely buildable. This is very easy to apply and is a little on the runny side which I like because it makes buffing it into the skin very easy. It feel very light on the skin and looks very natural whilst still covering any problem areas. The shade I have is 52 which is the second lightest. There doesn't seem to be a great colour range suiting to people with light to medium skin tones. Both shades 51 and 52 are both yellow toned which I like because it cancels out any redness very well. 

As someone who has oily skin I do find that this doesn't keep me matte all day. The original Healthy Mix does last longer for me and stays matte longer. From reading other peoples thoughts I would say that the original Healthy Mix is more suited to combination/oily skin and the Healthy Mix Serum will suit normal/dry skin. For me these are the best drugstore foundations out there at the moment, I have found very few faults with them. I don't find that it goes patchy and definitely doesn't feel cacky on the skin.

I wouldn't repurchase the Healthy Mix Serum just because I think the normal Healthy Mix foundation is better suited for my skin type. Healthy Mix Serum retails for £10.99 and is available here.

Have you tried any of the Bourjous Healthy Mix foundations?
