Review: Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation and Concealer


Hello beauties, Years ago I tried the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation when I heard it was a dupe for the Chanel Vita Lumiere Aqua Foundation. And let me confirm for you that it is in fact a close dupe for the Chanel foundation. So when I heard that Bourjois was reformulating this already amazing foundation I was a bit hesitant. So what’s new about this foundation?

Review Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation

  • Retails for $29.99
  • New anti-fatigue formula, which contains a combination of Vitamins, C, E and B5, helps complexion look healthy and radiant
  • Claims to last up to 16 hours and leaves skin feeling replenished
  • Available in six shades in Australia. I use the shade Dark Beige which is the darkest shade in the range and it’s a tad light for me so I tend to mix with a darker foundation
  • I like to apply it with a Beauty Blender or Buffing Brush
  • The coverage is light to medium with a luminous finish
  • Because it has a luminous finish, I prefer to use an oil controlling primer on my oily/ combo skin
  • The foundation lasts really well on my skin, so long as I set it with powder. It lasts about 5 hours before some oils peak through, so quite normal for me
  • It’s been so long since I’ve used the original foundation so I can’t compare it, however I really like this foundation


Review Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer

  • Retails for $20
  • Available in three shades in Australia. I use the shade Medium which is the middle shade in the range. It’s a bit too light for me so I should have gone with Dark, however I can make Medium work
  • I love the doffer applicator, so clean and hygienic!
  • In terms of coverage I think it’s on the light side
  • Texture wise its creamy but sets well and lasts all day
  • Personally I’ve been really disappointed by the concealer. Maybe its because the shade is too light, or maybe it’s because of the minimal coverage…

So there you have it, I love the foundation but the concealer is a miss. Have you tried the foundation and concealer? What’s your thoughts?
