I'm in love, this is definitely a HG product! I used to be skeptical about drugstore foundations, I believed that the more I pay the better is the product. Oh, I have tried maaaany foundations Chanel Vitalumier Aqua, Clarins Skin Illusion, Dior Diorskin Nude etc. and Healthy Mix beats them all. And this is the only foundation that I have ever repurchased.
I think this foundation is good for all skin types and ages (I'm 24 and my mother is 53 and we both use Healthy Mix).
If anything, I wish this foundation had some SPF in it.
This is a great drugstore foundation. It gives a gorgeous dewy glow and I love the smell. I think it needs a decent setting powder for it to work otherwise it does slide a bit during the day. Has decent medium coverage but I prefer medium to full which is why I didn't give it full marks.
I love this foundation. I've been using cream foundations for a number of years as opposed to liquid, but wanted something a bit lighter for a change.
This is great - it gives the skin a dewey look, really fresh and healthy.
I'd say it gives a medium coverage - I have quite problem skin right now, I've had a few breakouts, but this seems to give me good coverage, and it's really buildable. I apply the foundation with a damp sponge rather than with my fingers, so I can't comment on how it 'feels' to blend in. Applying the foundation with a sponge perhaps helps with the dewey effect too, although obviously you use slightly more of the foundation when you apply in this way.
I set it with powder, and it lasts all day for me (although it's not been so hot here this week - hoping that it will last as long in the summer months). It also smells really nice, which is unusual for a foundation!
Overall, I would definitely recommend, and will be buying this again.
After reading the comments, I ordered Bourjois from the UK. I ordered color #51 which was correct for my skin tone. I have combination oily T-zone skin with a few sun spots. I was disappointed in the coverage and lasting ability. I think I'll stick with Cargo brand liquid foundation #20 about $35. They have Cargo at Ulta stores and you can order online.
I had never used Bourjois foundation before but I saw this and decided to try it, I brought this in vanilla the lightest shade which was good for my fair skin. My skin is very red and scarred so this foundation needed a heavy coverage concealer as well as it doesn't cover blemishes very well. Although the price and overall use of this foundation is good for everyday use.
Cannot live without this. It stays on really well. Doesn't cause me any skin problems and looks really natural. I gave it 3 for packaging though as the pump stopped working on my first bottle and it wasted half the product when I couldn't get it out. I set this with Chanel loose powder and it lasts all day with no touch ups. It's a bargain and I recommend it very highly.
Definitely the best drugstore foundation I have tried. Shade range is nice and neutral, which is GREAT, especially for a drugstore brand. I found the consistency to be a little too thick for my liking, but I just mixed in a little moisturizer and i was good to go. The finish is ever so slightly dewy, so i set this with a very thin layer of powder and it holds up pretty well for the good part of the day. If i was on a drugstore budget this would definitely be my HG foundation.
I found this foundation really sheer, and had to keep building and building to get a nice look, so if you are looking for medium to full coverage then this isn't for you. I bought the palest one they do and it was still slightly too dark for my skin, and it has a really orange tinge to it. I didn't think this evened out my skin tone at all, I was still having to use concealer and powder on top to give a better coverage and even out the colour on my face, which is disappointing. I found it quite greasy on my face, but I have dry skin so this helped to keep my face moisturised and kept the foundation on all day without drying out. However I expect for somebody with oily skin that this would be greasy and horrible by the end of the day.
Pros - smells nice, comes with a handy pump (always a winner with me) and nice lasting coverage if you only want something sheer.
Cons - oily, doesn't cover blemishes or even out skintone, and way too orange.
Nice formula, applies well and wears a long time. Didn't make me break out and also didn't stick to dry patches badly. It gives me medium coverage and just about evens out the skintone but I still need concealer.
The only thing I disliked is the fact the lightest shade still looks slightly orange. I find this weird because the lightest shade in the 10 hour sleep effect is perfect. Other than that I like it but I shall be going back to the 10 hour foundation when i'm done.
I went to a shop to get me a bottle of Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation, but was told it was discontinued or something :( So I purchased this one instead.
I knew it wouldn't be perfect for me because I have oily skin. After two hours my face was WET all over the place, and even powder didn't fix it.
The Serum gel also smells better to me. Healthy Mix is definitely an awesome foundation but if I could I would rather repurchase the serum.again. Now I use 123 Perfection by Bourjois and it's just what I wanted.
