I would so not have tried this if it hadn’t been for magazine samples. Thankfully the soft beige sample colour is appropriate for me and I fell in love.
Love struck at first application, it glides on with a brush/sponge/fingers and covers a multitude of sins whilst actually making you look awake at 6am!
Wonder struck again when I looked in the mirror at lunch time- it still looked the same. This never happens to me usually.
Finally it really hit home that this is awesome and I will probably never give it up, when I got home at 9pm and my skin looked glowing.
I have obviously bought it now (it was £5.99!) and can honestly say I reach for this before my high end counterparts. Hell, I was wearing sheer glow at the weekend and I missed the Rimmel by 7pm.
The beauty of it is it’s pretty high coverage but it looks natural, just better! I honestly never thought I would like a £6 foundation but here we are. This is how I wanted & expected Bourjois healthy mix to be.

This wasn’t really a constructive review, more of a blatant shower of praise so I’ll try and be slightly helpful:
I have dry skin so I don’t know how it would perform on oily/combination but I’ve read very good reviews.
This is long lasting with a satin to dewey finish
It is medium to high coverage but looks light on the skin.
Covers blemishes, pigmentation and redness effectively but sticks to flaky pieces of skin. If your skin is dry by nature (which mine is) then you’ll be fine but if you have actual dry patches on your face then this won’t help anymore than any other foundation.
Have you tried this foundation? What did you think and what skin type do you have?
