Well I think that new foundations from Bourjois is always big news. Bourjois really know how to do foundation and Healthy Mix Serum is one of my faves – it performs as well as products £20 more expensive. This newbie is being hailed as “the new nude by Bourjois”. Check out Bourjois Nude Sensation Foundation.

So this is a foundation in a pot and it has a super light, moussey texture.

Interesting hey?

So the texture of this is really nice. It’s super light and whipped and as you smooth it over the skin it melts and disappears into the skin, leaving a veil of invisible coverage. The finish is softly matte, almost velvety, and it is indeed very smoothing.

I thought both these shades looked really dark in the pot but 41 Fair Nude blends into my skin perfectly.

It is great on my enlarged pores and also on the lines around my eyes. It is buildable in terms of the smoothing effect, meaning that I applied extra with a concealer brush to blur out lines, but the coverage doesn’t build up so that it looks cakey and there’s still a bare skin effect. I find it really effective.

  1. Ooo – tempting. Any ingredients you think might upset skin prone to spots? I’m not good with silicones. Healthy Mix is one of my favourite foundations, in fact one of the only ones that doesn’t make my skin get more spotty.

    1. DIMETHICONE,
      CYCLOPENTASILOXANE,
      AQUA (WATER),
      HYDROGENATED VEGETABLE OIL,
      DIMETHICONE CROSSPOLYMER,
      BUTYLENE GLYCOL,
      VINYL DIMETHICONE/METHICONE SILSESQUIOXANE CROSSPOLYMER,
      ALCOHOL DENAT.,
      CYCLOHEXASILOXANE,
      BIS-PEG/PPG-14/14 DIMETHICONE,
      SODIUM CHLORIDE,
      CAPRYLYL GLYCOL,
      PARFUM (FRAGRANCE),
      TRIETHOXYCAPRYLYLSILANE,
      PROPYLENE GLYCOL DICAPRYLATE/DICAPRATE,
      CITRUS AURANTIUM AMARA (BITTER ORANGE) FLOWER EXTRACT,
      MALTODEXTRIN,
      ALPHA-ISOMETHYL IONONE,
      THEOBROMA CACAO (COCOA) EXTRACT,
      CASSIA ANGUSTIFOLIA SEED POLYSACCHARIDE,
      PHENOXYETHANOL,
      SILICA,
      HYDROXYETHYLCELLULOSE,
      PENTAERYTHRITYL TETRA-DI-T-BUTYL HYDROXYHYDROCINNAMATE.
      [+/- (MAY CONTAIN):
      MICA,
