French Makeup favorites # 1 - The Healthy Mix Serum Foundation by Bourjois

Hi gorgeous !! I’m coming back today to tell you about a French product that I love (really, Love !) and which in my opinion is a must have : the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation 

A little word about the brand : considering their price range, you would probably think that Bourgeois is a « drugstore » brand, but let me tell you this : they were born in Paris in 1863 ( no mistake, 1863). 

They do now belong to Chanel (yes, Chanel) which means the same labs and same factories are behind their products… Interesting, right ?

Injecting a little Parisian flare into their cosmetics line, Bourjois consistently brings forth innovative products with a quality finish. Continuously evolving, Bourjois created the first double ended mascara, while striving to improve the texture and finish of their finely milled powders.

The Healthy Mix Serum Foundation by Bourjois was designed to give skin a boost of radiance for up to 16 hours (!) thanks to its vitamin-rich fruit blended formula including litchi, goji berries, and pomegranates.

The « serum » in the name is really about its pretty unique gel formula, designed to blend easily into the skin and hide imperfections.

If you do not know yet, I am really careful when it comes to what I put on my skin, especially on my face, this applies of course to the foundation I use and this one is great. It is GREAT and easily deserves its place close to my MUF HD, YSL teint touche éclat and teint encre de peau, my Giorgio Armani Lumineux Silk and other Laura Mercier (amongst others) of my collection.

For my combination skin, with a tendancy to dehydration, my pores, pigmentation and acne scars here and there, the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation is just perfect.

As claimed by the brand, the gel formula « melts » into my skin (I apply it with my Sigma F80 Kabuki brush and then blend it with my beauty blender).

The result is incredible : my complexion is evened, the little imperfections have disappear without any caky effect nor any demarcation.

The foundation has a medium coverage, it gives a glowy finish (glowy, not shiny) and offers a nice fresh complexion.

I don’t know about the 16 hours hold that Bourjois claims but I can tell it perfectly holds the 8 to 10 hours I have it on my face

The Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation is available in five shades (I use the # 56 Light Bronze) and is really affordable, which makes it even better !

I hope this post is of any help for you guys, stay around for new favorites the French way !

In the meantime, please do not hesitate to leave me any request or question you may have about French products or else in the comments.

See You !
