PSA: ieyra h. brings you another Bourjois product review!! Having lớn scroll through the archives of my blog, I just realised that it had been almost 7 months since the last time I noted down my thoughts on a drugstore foundation. I haven"t been really buying any base makeup ever since I got this from Watsons because of these days, I try my best to lớn do the "pan that palette" và also "1 empty, 1 newbie" project. So, today, before I"m tossing this out into my empties bag, I"d like to lớn chia sẻ with you guys the Đánh Giá of Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum. It"s basically a cult favourite drugstore foundation ahy vọng many!What it is?Here"s what Bourjois has to lớn say about it;"Give sầu your skin a radiance boost with Bourjois" Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation- made from a vitamin-rich fruit therapy formula for an even complexion & an instant anti-fatigue result.Made from an instant anti-fatigue vitamin-rich fruit therapyformula with litđưa ra, goji berries và pomegranates.

Skin Condition and Trial Period
I have sầu an oily-combination skin although these days it"s leaning towards dry và dehydrated.My skin is congested especially on the forehead, some whiteheads here và there and I have a lot of sunspots & redness.If I rethành viên it correctly, I bought this foundation somewhere in May or June last year & it has really been a while since I first started using it. For reference, most part of my face is NC30 in Mac foundation shade, but I was matched lớn NC25 (& prefer khổng lồ use it) or I would usually piông xã a foundation one or two shades lighter than my actual skin tone because;(1) foundations often oxidised badly on my skin.(2) khổng lồ avoid looking too weird since the rest of my body toàn thân especially my hands are two shades lighter và.... I touch my face a lot. Lol.PackagingThe bottle is made from plastic but it"s very glass look-alượt thích or so I thought. I"m pretttttty sure this is plastic but you know, I don"t want lớn drop it down to the floor for a chạy thử. One thing I can ensure you is, the bottle has a lighter weight to it than its cousin, Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation. It"s also slimmer but with the same 30ml nội dung. Adispense pump coming along with this foundation is a massive sầu YES because it"s hygienic & I get more control, hence far less wasteful product than if I"d to pour it freely onlớn my hand.

Scent
Strong fruity scent. It"s very similar to lớn Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation.ColoursAt Watsons, there are only 4 shades available (51-54) and after the bad, unforgiving oompage authority loompaexperience I had with Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, I decided to pichồng up 52 Vanilla. I figured 53 Light Beige would be too orange if it"s oxidised.
BUT DOES THIS ONE MATCH ME?well.... not quite, especially within the first 10 minuteswhen I put this on my face (the foundation hasn"t yet oxidised). I"d look slightly grey, meaning that the shade is lighter. :( I noticed that MAC NC25 is a lot more yellow toned than this shade.Here are some swatches;
Application
I"d usually use 1-2 pump of the foundation onto the back of my h& và dot it all over my face, concentrating on both of my cheeks where I have some redness. I prefer to lớn apply it with a Real Techniques Buffing Brush or sometimes I will use my cheapo no-br& buffing brush that I got from an Instagram seller. Buffing is like moving your brush in circular motions khổng lồ blend the foundation and I prefer this kind of brush because it"s dense and easy to lớn buff in the product.
Consistency/Texture
Bourjois described this as a gel foundation but I don"t own anything similar to compare it with. The sản phẩm is more on the "thin" side, but it"s not watery và I feel lượt thích it gets the blending job easier with this kind of consistency. No need lớn vị the one side first lah then the other side later etc etc because it does not dry out or settle down very quickly.

CoverageThis foundation provides light khổng lồ medium coverage that even out my skin nicely without it looking cakey or overdone. It"s buildable but just above sầu medium. I don"t consider it lớn have a greater coverage than the original Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation.
Finishing
With a buffing brush, the end result is verrry natural & skin-lượt thích. It feels like you"re not putting any foundation! It has a "glow" or "radiance" finish to it so that makes the skin to lớn look healthy and dewy without being overly shiny. I also like how it doesn"t feel tacky at all. I"ll not recommover this if you like a matte finishing.LongevityOkay lah, not bad though it"s very hot và humid over here for most of the time, so the foundation wears off sooner than I expected. I would assume it be great for winter time or for somebody toàn thân who lives in a much colder country. One thing surprised me is that, I get oily easier when I wear the original version of the Healthy Mix, so this one actually tahan a lot better on my skin. I think I"ve read somewhere that gel foundation would help in counteract oiliness. Ye eh?
Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation vs Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation
I have sầu been using both foundations without any issues and they vì not cause my skin to lớn break out, in fact, I love them both! If I"d to lớn compare, I think there is a slight difference in the finishing, coverage và its oil-control properties. -For the serum version, it"s lightweight, provides natural finish và very skin-lượt thích. These are also what I consider as the strong selling points. So, If you have near perfect skin, the foundation could be an excellent option for you since the coverage is medium. Otherwise, opt for something lượt thích the original version of the Healthy Mix foundation for more coverage (medium but buildable to full). -I much prefer the finishing of the Healthy Mix Foundation rather than this one. The former provides more flawless và make my skin look airbrushed while with this foundation, again, it looks very natural. My pores also don"t look that visible when using the Healthy Mix Foundation. -As much as I prefer the original version, it makes my skin looks oily quicker. I figured that just within 3 hours, I need to lớn blot my face using a tissue or Clean & Clear Oil Blotting Paper. With this foundation, however, it holds up very well & I can wear it up lớn 5-6 hours without blotting, even longer if I stay in an air-conditioned room (pakai pagi, tenghari time zohor tu pun elok lagi).
Which one will I repurchase? as for now, I"m planning to go back to the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation because the finishing is something that I adore và would die for but this doesn"t mean that the serum version is not good. :)Personal Rating:
4/5.You can purchase this foundation at Watsons for RM61.35 but it"s always on sale for RM55!
