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 :)
I am pleasantly surprised with this foundation! I was looking for a new one for ages, but when I saw this one I felt like I had to try it out!
This foundation claims to have yellow, purple and green pigments for every discoloration on your face. I have a lot of redness on my cheeks, and this covers it just great! I use quite a lot though and apply it with a buffer brush, works better than a stippling brush imo. The formula is quite runny which I prefer, so I can blend it properly. It dries kind a matte on me though, which can look a little bit cakey sometimes. But I was looking for coverage and this does the job! I would say medium-full coverage but when you apply some more full coverage is definitely
I wouldnt buy this foundation if you're just using foundation and not like blush and highlighter and such.
I have oily skin, use this with both primer, mac P&P powder, the whole blush bronzer highlighter routine and fix +, this way it stays on almost the entire day!
Price is really cheap for the quality! Would buy this again if there wouldn't have been so many other foundations to try out!
+ good (buildable) coverage
+ runny formula, easy to blend
+ covers all the redness in my face as well
+ stays on for almost the entire day (complete routine though)
- Can look cakey sometimes
- Better not to be used on its own
I have both, 123 Perfect and Healthy mix serum gel . I love them both!
Although, the 123 Perfect was a little runny for me.. not sure if i grabbed an unlucky one or if that's the normal consistency.
I found that the coverage is light/medium. Perfect for days where i want to have "not wearing" makeup look. Perfect during summer! Not too heavy on my skin at all!!
Ok, first of all I odn't understand how would any one rate this below 4 lippes if not 5!! .. I have tried both healthy mic and flower donno what by bourgois before i tried this .. thank god I didnt lose all hope in this brand from trying so many foundations in the past non of which worked .. Anyways this one I have in beige 54 I am NC 30 to 35.. depending on the season..and this one is a perfect shade maybe the most fitting shade I have tried in my life and I have tried way too many .. The covergae is medium but I have found out that the older I get the less coverage I need as my face looks older with way too much coverage and no matter how I moisturize my face the foundation gets into my wrinkles especially under eye ones and accenuate them , this one doesn't ..
what it does good:
it hides undereye dark circles better than any concealer does !
it unfies the color of my face
gives a lovely matte look
doesn't transfer like most foundations does except for the great color stay one by revlon
brightens the face and gives a healthy (not pale ) glow..
what it doesn't do:
oxidies !! thank god, the color remains true and glowing
give a mask look
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
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!
