Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum gel foundation is one of the best foundation on the market, yet it's also one of the most underrated. This is definitely one of my favorites foundations, it wakes up the complexion and gives a beautiful second skin effect!

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation Review Photos Swatches Before After 53 55

I use the shades 53 and 55, depending if I'm using self-tanners or not. 53 Light Beige is equivalent to NC25-NC30 and 55 Dark Beige is similar to NC35.

Its cream-gel texture melts on the skin and blends beautifully. It's so lightweight, I can't even feel the product on my skin! However, Healthy Mix Serum won't work for you if you are looking for a mattifying foundation. I have very oily skin and this is not a foundation that I like to wear during the summer months since it's not mattifying. But I like to use it in fall and winter, when my skin is less oily and needs a radiant finish! I also love the fruity smell, but if you are sensitive to fragrances you might find it a bit too strong.

Healthy Mix Serum has such a beautiful natural finish, it really gives your complexion a boost! It does contain some very small shimmers that are barely noticeable to the naked eye. Usually I'm very picky about that, but these are so fine that they don't bother me. The finish is luminous, but it doesn't look oily.

Here's another picture where you can see the overall appearance of my skin with one layer of Healthy Mix Serum. My skintone is unified, my complexion is slightly luminous without looking greasy and minor flaws are much less noticeable. It's my skin but better!

It provides a light to medium coverage and you can apply two layers if you wish, it blends really well without looking cakey. One layer is enough to evens out skintone, but I need a good concealer to cover blemishes. It won't be a good foundation for you if you need full coverage.

This foundation is phenomenal, I love the natural and luminous finish! When my skin is dull-looking, Healthy Mix Serum is a life saver. I can't wear it in the summer months since my skin is too oily for that and need a mattifying formula, but it's one of my winter must haves!

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation retail for $27 CDN for 30ml.
