After trying a few high end foundations such as double wear and clinique foundation and concealer perfecting foundation....I thought time to try a few more from drugstore.....loved true match and rimmed wake me up...so decided to try this bourjois 123....In light beige.Have to say...impressed...I have dry acne scarred skin....and this builds up easily with two layers and covets everything really well...leaving my skin smoother and looking clearer...its a matt finish which I normally don't like as I have dryer skin...but this worked well...Over a good moisturiser of course...but overall it's a good drugstore foundation and will definitely buy again....10/10....lone it

This foundation is really nice if you can find a colour match. Sadly it oxidizes very badly on me. I've tried using a primer, moisturiser, base, etc to prevent it, but alas no avail. I went to work in the morning and lunchtime, I checked myself I looked ORANGE and there's obvious distinction between my neck and my face as I didn't put it on my neck thinking that the colour match was okay initially. It did control my oil though (I used it in the winter) and has a powder finish. Not patchy, did not accentuate pores or sit in fine lines.

Definitely my ultimate everyday foundation (discovered few months ago), easy to find in every dm-store where I live. Packaging - ok, price - decent:-), smell - very nice. It glides easy and looks like second skin on my sensitive cheeks. It does not cause any irritation, it does not look oily, it holds all day long looking fresh even after 10 hours of wearing (with just small corrections with powder foundation) and it's not heavy at all. No blackheads, no pimples. What else should I need for every day? Repurchase: oh, yes

I bought this on the promise that it neutralises redness but it really doesn't do anything for my red patches at all. It looks very similar to Healthy Mix on me in terms of coverage and shade but I think I would say I prefer HM overall, it gives a slightly fresher look. I think it's time for me to accept that no drugstore foundations can truly impact on my redness!

I am NC25 and I use this in the shade 52 Vanilla. I was really really hoping to love this foundation but it is definitely not long lasting even when I set my face with a powder. I use this in the morning and after 2 hours my T-Zone is a mess. I have oily-combo skin and it looks horrible as the foundation slides off. Dabbing with a tissue will remove the foundation in oily areas.

This is my favorite bourjois foundation and i have them all. It gives such a pretty finish and i feel like it stays longer on my skin than the other bourjois foundations. It gives a more matte finish on my skin than their other foundation but its a good natural matte finish. I always sett my foundation with a setting powder and it last for 4/5 h when i work, i work in a kindergarden with a lot of outdoors activities in all weather and a lot of hugs and small hans in my face so my face makeup almost never stays on all day on work without any toutch ups, but when im not working this will last almost all day on its own.

This product is my absolute holy grail. I have oily/combination skin with some dry patches due to using benzoyl peroxide as a topical treatment on my acne. This foundation really does act like a second skin, it glides on and if you use a little amount and a brush it just sinks right into your skin effortlessly. I like how you can use a little or use a lot and really change the kind of coverage. The finish is quite matte and feels almost powdery, however there is still this stunning luminosity that just looks like your skin is gently glowing- definitely not too flat or matte. It lasts about 8 hours on my skin (no primer, light dusting of powder), and i think this is pretty good for a foundation that is just so natural. At first I found the claims of many different colours a bit ridiculous however it does seem to brighten and cover redness without using a tonne of thick product, making me think there is some kind of magical technology that covers everything?! I have no idea but it feels so lovely and light yet has a medium coverage. The smell is kind of strange to be honest, but i've adjusted to it and now I don't mind it, SPF 10 means it doesnt have amazing protection but I never care about SPF in a foundation as you never use enough to protect properly, it also photographs beautifully (without flashback).The ONLY con i can think of is that sometimes my skin can get a little dry and this can tend to stick to dry patches however i have had this problem with some 'luminous' foundations and if i moisturise and exfoliate well this is never a problem. For all this the price is just incredible and I already have a backup, the colour 54 beige has a lovely yellow tone that suits my skin.

This foundation really doesn't suit me. For some reason the colours in the bottles seem about 2 shades darker than the equivalent in their other foundations and have a different undertone. It looks too dark yet too ashy on me so test before you buy. Review based on trying it anyway and washing it off before leaving the house so I don't scare people.The formula itself is heavier than the other bourjois foundations I've tried (healthy mix and sleep effect) It has better coverage but you lose that weightless feeling. This feels too heavy on my skin and settles into dry spots and accentuates them. It definitley feels oilier than the other bourjois foundations though. Not sure what skin type this would suit.

this foundation is an absolute hero for an oily skin.. i tried it once and it has light to medium coverage but u can always build em up for full coverage.. it gives matte finished look. i claimed to stay for like 16 hours?? but i think it can just hold up till 4 hours since my skin is super oily.. it didnt break me out.. i love this foundation!!! recommended for those oily skin beauties out there..

It's not Bourjois fault that I didn't love this foundation. My skin is normal but can be dry and I feel like this foundation isn't for my kind of skin. It made me look too matte for my liking. It got better the longer I wore it, but I want my skin to look good all day. Another con is that the lightest shade they sell in my country is 52 Vanilla... I don't know if this is the lightest shade they've made, but the healthy mix one has 51 Light Vanilla, and I prefer that one. 52 Vanilla was okay in the summer, that's when I bought it, but after the summer, when my skin got lighter and drier, I just couldn't work with this foundation anymore. I stopped using it when my boyfriend called my face cakey. I'm not even half way through the bottle but I'm too scared to use it again.P.S. Coverage is fine. I think this is a good foundation if you have oily skin.
