I think I finally found my HG foundation!

Packaging: Plastic, nothing too fancy, love the pump!

Smell: Very fruity, doesn’t linger.

Application: Goes on beautifully (even more so on top of a primer) and blends very easily into the skin. As it is quite liquid, a little goes a long way. One pump is usually enough to cover my whole face and neck.

Coverage: Medium buildable coverage with a very natural finish which I LOVE! It covers my dark under-eye circles almost completely (due to the yellow tones in the foundation), as well as my blemishes, so I only need concealer on my very bad days. It sets, so I don’t need to use a powder with this, which saves me some time in the morning. The colour (51 Light Vanilla) is a perfect match for my fair skin, and has nice neutral undertones. Another big plus is that I don't feel like wearing foundation at all, it's so light weight!

Staying power: This foundation claims to last 16 hours – it definitely lasts me through the day when I use a primer (and I use the dirt cheap E.L.F. one ^^) and without I only need a minor touch-up round my nose.

Price: I think it costs £9.99 for 30ml, I think, which is amazing value for money!

It's oil-free!

Would I buy this again? Hell yeah!

okay so after hearing all the rave reviews i decided to buy it.i didn't had any luck with the other 2 Bourjois foundations i bought in the past (matt lovely,bio detox) but this one looked better.

and it is,1st of all it smells absolutely amazing i could sniff it all day long, second it gives a medium to full coverage,which is perfect for me...
third it gives a semi matte finish which make me look healthy and radiant,but not oily.

i cannot say if this lasts for 16hr but it lasts 8 for sure!

it hasn't break me out!!!!!(yet)

This foundation applys like a dream, very soft and glowy effect. All the colours in range are definetly yellow based, and i having pink undertones dont actually mind seems to neutralize it. The colour is almost a perfect shade match (Im NW20 and a shade 51 in this) I used to apply it with a elf powder brush but reach for a more conventional foundation brush when i need more coverage. It does cover discoloration, i'de say its a light-medium coverage foundation thats buildable, but i tend to need a concealer (Mac studio finish is perfect!) to cover blemishes. I set it all with a powder (Dream matte is good for this i find because it doesnt stop it looking natural and make it chalky and uneven) But i feel that i need to blot every couple of hours with this because i get oil breaking through making my nose very shiny.. even if i use with primer powder and setting spray. its such a shame because it looks so natural and beautiful, i think this would suit normal-dry skins a little better but if anyone knows how to help my problem let me know because i think this is an amazing foundation! This hasnt broken out my very acne prone, combo-oily, congested skin. For now i'll stick to BM but when i want to change it up i always go for this! Give it a go at the price (Around £10 i think) you cant really go wrong, watch out though is you have very very sensitive skin because i think this is perfumed.. very lightly! I think it smell gorgeous - like suncream!

I have sensitive skin, which has flared up recently and driven me crazy so I had to throw away my old heavier foundation (EL double wear). I went back to this brand because I used to wear it with no angry skin related problems, and I was hoping to find this the case again. I chose shade 52 Vanille, which was a little too dark for me, but still blends rather well and doesn't leave my face looking dirty.

The Pros:
-It looks great and rejuvenates my dull looking skin (not blessed with that porcelain pale skin sadly, just the sickly looking kind)
-Smells divine, which makes me feel good when wearing it
-Applies great and lasts most of the day except on my nose but I'm a little red in that area so I often have to re-apply there during the day for that reason.

The Cons:
-Causes my skin to breakout quite badly after using for more than occasional wear.

1.Skin type – dry to normal/dry

2.Colours – limited amount of colours (about 6 I think) and they are all quite yellow-based. This is fine for me but maybe not for everyone...

3.Packaging – plastic bottle. Not very interesting but good because you can see how much product is left.

4.SPF – None.

5.Price - £9.99. Fantastic value for money. I would expect to pay more for such a good foundation.

6.Application – applied well with a foundation brush. Blended easily with no streaks. Smells divine.

7.Coverage – light to medium and buildable for areas that need more.

8.Finish – dewy to semi-matte depending on skin type.

9.Wear during the day – I have quite dry skin and this hasn't accentuated any dry areas or made my skin feel tight. My skin feels looked after all day.

10.Lasting power – dry skins probably do not need to powder for this to last nicely all day. Normal skins may want to lightly powder down the centre of the face.

I would recommend this foundation to anybody that has quite dry, young or relatively blemish free skin. I would not recommend to someone with an oily skin at all. Absolutely worth a try at such an amazing price. I will definitely be buying this again.

Just bought this after seeing two positive reviews on YouTube. It gives a medium but natural coverage, smells lovely - like apricot. I have oily to combination skin and this smooths over my pores, keeps me fairly shine free and hasn't caused any breakouts. I'd highly recommend especially as it only costs £9.99!

I love this foundation so much. You can definitely tell that the parent company of bourjois is chanel, because the quality is just excellent. Very reasonably priced at $32 (for australia especially!) but I bought it half price at target :)

Their claims are: "Perfect coverage. Semi-matte finish. Oil-free. Tolerance tested dermatologically. Maintains essential skin hydration."
- love the coverage of this, I would say it is probably medium, leaning towards to sheer side, perhaps? Feels great on the skin, very lightweight, especially compared to other products such as BB cream which I can't stand the feel of!
- semi-matte finish, definitely, although I prefer my foundation to be on the dewy side I can't complain, it looks like a slightly more matte version of my skin, nothing unnatural. On a night out, however, I do need to powder.
- hydration wise, I don't feel that this product is drying at all.

It doesn't claim to be long-wearing, and my only gripe with it is that without a primer it's by the end of a day at uni (which is around maybe 10 hours?) But I'm sure if I powdered more often the staying power would be much better. The colour selection isn't huge either, they don't have colours that run particularly dark, I'm a 54/55 for reference, and that's already the second darkest shade (I have medium-dark skin)

Regardless, it's a beautiful foundation and I'm definitely going to buy this one again!

WOOF. I should have known better than to search so hard for this foundation. It's not available here in the US so I located it on eBay. Now I'm battling about a dozen small pimples on my forehead, paired with PMS chin breakouts. Needless to say, this was terrible for my combo skin. Color was a bit too warm for my NW20 skin (bought 52). Nice bottle, but it did not do me good. The product has a nice slip to it, I'm guessing it's got a high amount of silicones in it. I wish this would have worked for me but I do not break out on my forehead unless it's product-driven.

I really think that Bourjois has the best drugstore foundations. The colour range is great for me, who has yellow-undertones in my skin. I don't know why people think it's hard to blend, I use my sigma F80 and it really blends nicely into the skin.

It has a nice coverage, and gives a really radiant appearance to the skin, which I love. I like a more dewy finish than a matte. It has a great staying power and is excellent as an everyday foundation to use.

- light and natural coverage
- fluid and easy to blend/apply
- good packaging: light plastic bottle that comes with a pump

- doesn't last long on my skin

i liked how it looked like when it was first applied on my skin but it doesn't stay on my combi-oily skin at all. by mid day, my skin was in a mess.
