So I now have had a chance to try out the new Bourjois Air Mat Foundation and can bring you a review of it with swatches and before and after photos. Here’s a little spoiler – I got on really well with it!
So as I told you in my first post, this foundation is all about creating a flawless, matte and smooth finish that lasts and last, yet is light as air.
If you ever worry about your foundation disappearing halfway through the day you will be interested in this because this has been formulated to provide 24 hour hold. Well I don’t think any of us are looking for coverage that lasts quite that long but the promise is a good one. And to be fair, it delivers very well indeed in terms of staying power.
Bourjois Air Mat Foundation Swatches – 02 Vanille & 03 Beige Clair
After having a play with it on my hand this morning, I forgot about it and it set, and it actually survived the shower. I had to use a makeup remover to get it off. This is thanks to light-weight oils that bind the specially coated pigments to the skin. They work. It lasted all day on my face with only a little bit of wear on my chin, which tends to get red towards the end of the day.
Bourjois Air Mat Foundation in 02 Vanille – Before & After Photos
Now I think 02 is the tiniest bit warm for my skin tone, but once I have all my makeup applied, it actually works really well.
It gives a soft matte finish, very high but natural looking coverage and it feels light on the skin. If you have something to cover, I think this will do it.
I absolutely love what it does to my pores, and it fended off shine for the whole day. Even though I didn’t use any powder. Excellent. If you like a bit more of a juicy finish, cream blush layers very well over it, as do powder highlighters for extra radiance.
Bourjois Air Mat Foundation is £9.99, you can find it HERE.
