Bourjois City Radiance Foundation - Reviewed!

I mentioned a few times that Bourjois are one of my favourite foundation brands. I love the formulas and they always seem to make my skin look flawless, whilst still being natural. Whenever they bring out a new one I always want to try it. I've been really into radiance products recently so this seemed like the perfect reason to try it.

The packaging is very similar to the Air Matte foundation, however this one comes in a pink tube with silver lettering. The foundation itself contains an SPF 30 and an anti pollution filter. It claims to hydrate and give a fresh and luminous complexion whilst providing a light to medium coverage.

The foundation comes in six shades, all of which lean on the light to medium complexion; once again there is that many shades available for a darker skintone. I went for shde 02 Vanilla as the lightest shade actually looked a little too pale.

The texture is light and creamy. You only need a small amount which I apply onto the skin and blend with a buffering brush. It takes a few minutes to 'set' so you have time to blend to a flawless finish. The coverage starts off light but you can build it up in the areas needed to give more coverage. Even as you layer the foundation it doesn't go cakey or looking heavy. It feels light and comfortable on the skin whilst giving a natural looking glow.

The finish is the foundation is one of the best things about it. It looks so fresh, glowy and natural on the skin whilst covering any imperfection. With it being a radiance foundation I have found that my skin can get a little oily after wearing it for a few hours. If I layer it with primer, powder and even a setting spray i've foundation that the wear time isn't actually that bad. 


If you're looking for a light weight foundation that give a natural glow to the skin I would definitely recommend this. I have combination skin and have found that this foundation work really well on my skin. If you have dry or normal skin this would work well, however it might not keep shine under control on very oily skin. 

Bourjois City Radiance Foundation retails for £9.99.

Have you tried this new Bourjois foundation? I'm a big fan of all the Bourjois foundation have tried. Do you have a favourite one by them?

  1. I've never tried any of the Bourjois foundations as they have never seemed to do a shade light enough but I so nearly added this to my superdrug order the other day but ended up going for the new concealer instead! I might have to give it a go though and hope I can get away with the lightest shade!

    1. I think you might be able to get on with the lightest shade as it is pretty pale. The new concealer is great! I bought both at the same time and they're both really good.
