I hadn't used this for a little while as I had tried out a few other foundations... and I came back to this in the right shade (I'd bought some previously too light) and it is PERFECT! So light but offers good coverage (light to medium) but is buildable without looking cakey. As long as you get the right shade, it is pretty much a perfect foundation. I have dry patches on my skin recently forming and it doesn't emphasise them like some of my other foundations. Love, love love.
Great foundation! It looks more like a tinted moisturizer but really lovely and disappears into skin. If you're not bothered by fragrance, its a good, affordable choice. It doesn't make me Breakout which is my priority when choosing foundations as I have very acne prone skin. Still need a good Concealer to match with this foundation but that goes for any foundation you choose if you have a lot of covering up to do.
This is a really nice drugstore foundation. Its a medium coverage that can be switched up from a dewy to a satin finish depending on your moisturiser underneath. I love the airless pump packaging which allows so much control over how much product I'd like to use. It is lightly scented with a sort of apricot fruity smell. I prefer to use a stippling brush with this foundation as I prefer the coverage to be sheerer. If I use my hands to blend it in, I get a fuller coverage out of this foundation. The staying power is decent, I can get about 6 hours without it fading. That being said, I have normal/dry skin so foundation doesn't have an issue on staying put on my skin even without setting with powder. I'm in the shade 52, which suits an NC25, NARS Fiji, Chanel 20, Chantecaille Camomile, Stila Natural Finish in C, Stila Illuminating foundation in 40 watts.
this foundation has been great on my drier skin. doesn't look cakey and gives me a nice glow that wears well throughout the day. the coverage is medium light. i like applying this with a sponge when i'm in a rush but wastes so much product and gives me a fantastic finish without having to work very hard. it builds nicely where needed and looks like skin. very natural looking makeup!! i set it lightly with prep and prime finishing powder or another translucent powder and it lasts all day. lovely makeup, too bad it's not readily available in the states.
MUA has raved about this foundation before, and I decided to give it a try and see if it was as good as some people have said. I have to say I didn't like this foundation's formula. I found it a bit too runny and not enough coverage, and I also didn't like the staying power especially in the hot humid Calcutta weather. However, I did really like this foundation's finish and shade, which were both perfect for my taste. I won't repurchase, but I can see where this would work very well for some.
I generally like this foundation quite a bit. I use it when I need more coverage. I find, since my skin is dry from Benzaclin, that I need to moisturize really well before applying it, and even sometimes mix it with a dot of moisturizer. It's a nice finish though, and worth it for the price.
I hated this at first, it was too pale and grayish it was just like my skin79 bb cream but without the oxidation that a bb cream has..., the reason was that i bought it on ebay and the seller sent me a fake one!!!! So i decided to buy it another one in ASOS and voilá!!! This foundation is so amazing smells great, it blends easily and left the skin with a beautifull glow, I just have to use a Mac blot powder on my tzone and my face looks flawless!!! I am really impressed with this foundation. I will repurchase. For referece I'm between NC25 - NC30 and the shade 54 is a perfect match.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this product! it's a light-medium coverage that gives me a natural, flawless finish. it's semi-matte which is perfect for giving my combination skin a dewy finish (i just make sure to powder my t-zone). it smells lovely and i'm super glad it has a pump. The product blends easily and it stays on my face pretty much all day :) LOVE IT
I bought this foundation over the summer, loved it initially, but by the end of the day my face looked like an oil slick. It just wouldn't sink into my skin and would slide around, especially around my nose and transfer. I was really bummed because the color was perfect, it didn't break me out and the rest of my face looked fresh and lovely. In the end it just wasn't a good fit for my combo skin.
Months later I decided to give it another shot after seeing gossmakeupartist on youtube discuss common foundation mistakes. Apparently I've done them all! Two points I took to heart is that it's so incredibly important to make sure the ingredients in your skin care are complimentary to your foundation and to match a foundation according to your skin type. Bourjois healthy mix is supposed to impart a healthy "glow" so if you have oily skin like mine anytime you see the word "glow" approach a foundation with caution. Yes, I know...it seems obvious but it looks like I'm not the only one! Anyway, to make a long story short...I'm using a complimentary moisturizer underneath and now that Fall/Winter is approaching my skin is not as oily so the foundation applies to a perfect finish; no oil slick...just beautiful, natural looking skin. I apply it with a Sigma foundation brush and that seems to do the trick.
It is now my affordable, every day, go to foundation for the wintertime. I'm so glad I gave it another chance....again...I know it won't suit me in the spring/summer but for now it's perfect.
The first time I used Healthy Mix, I had some irritation on my skin which made it flaky and my flakes were only further emphasized but after about 20 min or so it went away. Now that my skin is back to its normal oily self, it glides on like a dream. The finish is satiny which looks more natural than the usual matte finish that I use. My face doesn't get too shiny throughout the day. Instead, I get a nice glow but I do have to blot sometimes. The coverage is light to medium so it's ideal for evening out your skin tone and not meant to cover up any imperfections like blemishes. It feels very light when applied so you barely feel like you're wearing makeup. Very good foundation overall and definitely worth a try.
I really wanted to love this foundation after reading so many positive reviews but sadly i find myself trying to avoid using it.
the coverage is not bad, light-med.
i have oily/combo skin and even with a powder it becomes oily very quickly.
For a foundation that makes my skin oily it is suprising hard to blend. Some times i have to mix olay moisturiser with it or it will sort of sit in spots on my face and not blend.
also so sad again to say something negative but i think it may be causing breakouts. I have been using nyx hd (which is not a holy grail but it doesnt cause me to breakout) everytime i swap and use healthy mix i break out. :(
i really want an amazing (acne prone friendly) med coverage foundation, this is not it.
