I love this product! I have repurchased this foundation many times, and I will go back to it again after I finish the current one. I have tried many foundations, and I keep going back to this one. I love it so much!
- Goes on beautifully
- Looks flawless
- Lasts all day, even without powder
- Smooth consistency
- Convenient packaging
- Feels light
- Has a slight powdery finish (some might no like this)
- A bit pricey, $32 in Australia
- It clings to dry patches
- Sometimes need to apply powder during a hot day, as I get a bit shiny in the t-zone area
Since I have oily and acneprone skin I'm constantly looking for a matte foundation that last longer than 2 hours and doesn't break me out.
I like this foundation a lot. When just applied it looks very matte, still natural looking. I apply just one drop with a buffer brush and it covers all my blemishes, my skin looks flawless. I don't need to use a setting powder. At the end of a day at work it's a little bit shiny, but i wouldn't say oily.
The colour 53 suits me well.
I would repurchase but I like to change foundations in the hope I will find my HG (but this one is almost it! Hahaha!)
Watch out when you take pictures with flash!
I am dissapointed with this foundation. It seemed like the perfect foundation for my combination, acne prone skin because of it's matte finish and yellow undertones. But it sets into pores, does not cover up well and is hard to apply. Not buying again.
Edit: I tried it again, with a different moisturizer underneath and was suprised how good it looked. I am currently using Avene Cleanance K, somethimes Hydrance Optimale Legere, it depends on my skin condition. It did not set into pores, I was able to cover up all of my blemishes and pigmentation with just one sheer layer. Lasted about 4 hours before I had to blot.
Now I'm using this as my daily foundation. The shade I use is 51, perfect mach for my NC15/20 skin.
This oxidized terribly pretty much as soon as I put it on. I'm not super pale but even the lightest shade was orange, and I'm very yellow toned. This foundation also really emphasizes any dry or spotty areas and it sets pretty quickly to a almost slightly powdery finish. I'd rather powder afterwards personally. Totally regret buying this.
I'm not entirely sure how this foundation performs on it's own as I have shade 54 which is too dark for me so I mix it with a lighter shade of the Healthy Mix foundation that I also own. I would say it's probably quite similar to those. maybe a little thicker. I have very oily skin and this really doesn't last well on my skin. If I want it to last longer I will mix it with my Revlon Colorstay Whipped foundation. It is about a medium coverage foundation. Nothing too heavy. Shade 54 is quite neutral in tone, not too pink, not too yellow. Not a great for me. I would recommend it to those with normal skin, possibly combination if you blot throughout the day.
Most liquid foundations doesn't work that well in terms off keeping my T-zone from shining, because in Singapore it is often blazing hot outdoors and freezing cold indoors (crazy crazy air conditioning). I switched back to liquid foundation about 2years ago, after much research online, and was really excited that I found out about Bourjois 123 Perfect foundation. Before this, I was using powder foundation from MAC and pressed powder from various brands but these didn't help even out my skin tone. I am outdoors often and my skin tone can fluctuate a shade or 2 within a few months. I bought shade #52 Vanilla and found that it is too light, but I like the shine control and coverage, so I headed out to get a #53 Light Beige, a perfect match. It is not that accessible in Singapore stores but I found this on www.asos.com and its great cos they have regular sale promotions there and it ships free. I notice that it applies best with a foundation sponge.
It's not that great, it gives me wrinkles in my undereyes and the coverage isn't that great, if you're looking to look natural with it, don't use it. It's highly obvious that you have foundation on if you want to opt for a natural look!
I purchased this in shade 53 Light Beige, and it matches my summer skin tone well. I purchased online as Asos.com for about $13.50, when I purchased it they had free shipping, so it was a good deal. I find myself reaching for this daily. I use it with a Sigma flat buffing brush F-80 and it goes on quick and blends like a dream. No effort needed with this foundation! My HG would be Estee Lauder Double Wear, which sometimes is just a bit too heavy for daytime, and you have to work with it a little more than this foundation. Coverage is good and looks natural, and the lasting power is as good as Double Wear. This has an SPF 10, which is pretty low, but it is good for photos.
I really like this foundation a lot. It is my favorite of them all. I have combination skin with a very oily t zone. This foundation keeps me matte for about 4 to 5 hours, I think that is pretty decent for a drugstore foundation. I have it in shade 52 and I find it it matches my olive skin, it blends very well, has a yellow undertone and the finish is matte but natural.
I really loved this foundation. I previously bought another foundation that just wasn't right for me at all so after some research I decided on this one.
I was surprised at how liquidy the consistency was. To be honest, it made me a little concerned as I didn't want it to not cover redness in my cheeks and some problem areas. However, it did the job really well! It gives a really light coverage which is great for everyday. The redness was gone in my cheeks while still having only light coverage!
As for the shade, I bought 51 (light vanilla) which is the lightest shade you can buy as I am very fair. I found that this shade really worked for me which is amazing as I find it hard to get the right shade for my pale skin.
However, keep in my mind that I don't use this foundation buy itself - I also use a mineral finishing powder :)
