At £10.99, 123 Perfect is perfect for those who want to hide their imperfections. I found that the product covers most of my imperfections but not entirely due to the medium coverage. I also love the fact that this foundation has an SPF of 10. I love the creamy, hydrating consistency that glides onto the face. As the consistency is so creamy it is surprisingly not greasy when applied. The foundation is extremely beneficial to those with oily/combination skin due to the foundation's powdery/matte finish. The foundation starts to appear unnatural if you start to build it up to achieve full coverage. It is hard to find the right shade for your skin tone as there are little shades in the collection. As the foundation oxidizes on the skin it creates an orangey hue to my complexion in natural light and that really puts me off this foundation.
I would repurchase this foundation again but only if Bourjois had more of a colour range in the collection. Read my full review on http://blondiesbeautybag.blogspot.co.uk/
I have both the healthy mix foundations & I do like them but I have really oily skin so I much prefer this on I would say this is medium buildable, the finish is matte which I love and is very lightweight even when it's full coverage I find it covers my imperfections perfectly I mix this with revlon colorstay to get the best result as I like really full coverage and long lasting foundation I can see why people with fair skin would complain about the colours being too orange or dark I'm very light skinned but use the shade 54 as I fake tan so not too sure about the lighter shades this foundation has a floral smell but doesn't really bother me at all I would recommend this to girls with oily skin continued >>
I have oily skin and this dries to a powder finish / a matt finish, its a medium coverage and smells amazing I have the lightest shade and it's too dark as I'm very pale / fair but if they did a lighter shade I would defo buy its a great foundation just the wrong colour it keeps me matt all day without powder because of the finish. Overall it's great, one of the best I've used.
Having used Healthy Mix foundation for over a year now, I wanted to try another one of there foundations as I have found Healthy Mix to be amazing. But after purchasing 123 Perfect in shade 52, I found this product to very dark and the shades did not match up to the other with Healthy Mix. And that was the start of the problems that occurred when I started using it. I had primarily gone for 123 Perfect as it supposedly corrects red complexions, but not only did this foundation do nothing in the way of correcting my skin tone, it completely dried out my skin. And caused my eczema to flare up big time, which resulted in me having to use a steroid cream to cure the problems this foundation had caused. Would defiantly not recommend for people with dry skin.
I have acne-prone combination skin with a yellow undertone. my skin has some dry patches and for me this foundation did not cling to it at all! Lovely foundation with a really liquid texture. Dries matte but it doesn't look flat.
It really does last for me, about 10 hours. Some slight fading but not much. It has a light to medium coverage and it can be built up for higher coverage. Covers redness and uneven skin tone very well and my face did look brighter. Does not sink into pores!
I really love the fact that it actually dries and sets. I used shiseido perfect foundation brush to stipple it on my skin and a little does go a long way!
Hey guys, Go check out my blog where i also write more reviews!
The idea behind this foundation if you don't already know is that it has 3 colours for different reasons!
Yellow - To conceal dark circles
Mauve - To help Dull complexions
Green - To correct any redness that the skin may have
I felt that it gave coverage underneath the eyes for the dark circles and it does brighten up your face and i have recently been suffered from redness and it does help cover the redness
It has a gel like texture and can be applied with any method really such as stippling, damp cosmetic sponge, foundation brush and fingers! I feel that it blends well with any method!
I would say that it is mid coverage although its not stated on the bottle but it is also very build-able to a high coverage, i think its very lightweight and doesn't feel cakey i find it very hydrating and it does clump around my dry patches on my face.
It does last for a reasonable amount of time for me it lasts about 10 hours and then begins to wear off

I had high hopes for this foundation as its supposed to be very good, but I purchased it and I am not a fan! I got shade 52 which is the second lightest because I am pale and it was very orange which I hate. Also, the coverage was awful, and it does not do what it says its supposed to! For naturally quite tanned people with flawless skin this would be really good but not for me
For a foundation on a budget, this is a great contender against up-stream brands. It's light consistency gives surprisingly medium coverage that conceals red areas, pigmentation from old spots and localised acne with ease, and without cakeyness. It doesn't settle in open pores and leaves a matte - yet not lifeless- finish, so wearing powder to set or blot becomes optional, if not unnecessary. Yes, this product does have a slight 'rose' smell to it, but considering this, my very sensitive - and often reactive skin - has not been affected when I use this every day (this has not caused me any redening, rashes or spots). I have used this foundation on dry (non-moistured and cold-weather parched) skin, and was really surprised how well it performed. Considering other reviewers' experiencing it clinging to dry areas, I didn't experience any patching or gathering - this really surprised me as the texture is quite matte/dry, so I put it down to my application: lightly stippled on with a sponge wedge only on areas needed.
The colour range is very yellow-based, and with my pink-undertones, this helps to tone down redness without looking like 'obvious' make-up. I use shade 52, which suits my fair skin with pink and peachy undertones. The pump bottle is heavy glass, but I think this gives the product an 'expensive' feel. Overall (and after trying and testing many) I think this foundation is certainly worth a try for those who are looking for more adjustable coverage - mixed in with an illuminating moisturiser or worked on-top of a dewy primer, this is simply divine, and hides a multitude of sins.
I think this is an absolutely wonderful foundation. I apply this with a beauty blender (or something similar), which I find gives the best finish. It blends like a dream, looks very natural and covers a lot of sins, I would say the high end of medium coverage. It starts to look unnatural if you start building it up to achieve absolute full coverage though (i.e. EL Double Wear coverage), so use a concealer instead. One thing I really don't like is the fragrance, it's like a flowery alcohol-y smell. Maybe it's just my bottle, or maybe it isn't :\ Also, the colours run quite orange. I'm already very yellow toned, and even on me the undertone of this foundation is really too strong. I would repurchase, if not for the smell and the tone of this. What a shame :(
