Oooh I am rather excited because I do like a Bourjois foundation and once again, I have been totally sucked in by the name. I have been playing with the brand new Bourjois City Radiance Foundation and I rather like it. I have swatches and before and after photos for you.

It has a beautifully creamy yet light texture and as you apply it, it feels fresh and hydrating. It blends into the skin really easily and leaves a lovely radiant finish. It is very nice to use. It also bonds really well to the skin which could see because I forgot to remove the swatches and they actually survived a shower really well!

Bourjois City Radiance Foundation Before & After

I used 01, but I also think I could get away with 02.

I really like what this does. It is very good on my enlarged pores (I hate them!!) and does indeed really brighten the skin whilst giving it a lovely unified even finish.

My skin is a little dry at the moment but I found this really hydrating and smoothing and it didn’t emphasise any dry patches, and actually concealed them rather well. Result.

There is also a matching concealer, Bourjois Radiance Reveal.

  1. One look at you and I can clearly see that you are wearing a foundation. It’s very yellow and heavy cakey looking to me, I am sorry I don’t want to be rude but this is what I see.
    I always buy Ivory or porcelain shades of loreal or Max Factor, and they are more white than yellow.

    I love the idea that it contains spf 30 and I would buy it only because of it, but I am afraid that I will look like wearing a mask.

    Why all of their Bourjois shades are so yellow?
