I liked this foundation a lot. Good coverage, lasts a nice amount of time. I liked the little sponge it came with, especially when traveling, since I didn't need to bring a beauty blender. It HAS started coming off the lid, so make sure to try and be careful when you wash it.
Overall, I wouldn't mind buying it again, it's a fine product.

Mixed feelings about this!! PROS: great coverage, nice selection of color for pale skin, nice semi matte finish..., CONS: flowery intense smell, the sponge applicator is useless and it is only good for two days after that it breaks me out... Anyway it's discontinued

I bought this product, because I have quite oily skin and the shop assistant told me it has no oil in it, so your skin doesn't become shiny after a while. I bought it and fell in love with it the first time I tried it on. :) It has a good coverage and it stay on your face for a long time. My skin didn't look oily at all and I loved it. It's not that cheap, but it's definitely worth a buy! I would recommed it, especially if you have the skin like mine. I used Bourjois Healthy Mix before and I must say that Flower Perfection works better for me. I was disappointed at HM, when I tried it, to be honest. I also tried CC cream from the same trademark and I also didn't quite like it. FP is by far the best Bourjois foundation and I would buy it again without a second thought!
But I'm repeating it: This foundation works amazing for oily skin. I think it wouldn't be the best choice if you have very dry skin, because you won't be able to bled it right. But if every foundation you tried made your skin look greasy and shiny, give it a try, you won't be sorry.

I did not like this foundation, because I prefer using light foundations. I only used as itself twice, because it gave my face a mask effect. Therefore, I decided to mix it with my moisturizer and apply it with the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge (I tried previously with my fingers and foundation brush, and it still looked like a mask). It gives a matte finish, so it works well my oily skin after using a setting powder (E.L.F. Mineral Booster in Sheer) and lasts for 6-8 hours.
My color is 55 Dark Beige, which is a little bit too dark for my NC20-25 skin.
It comes with a pump and a sponge on the lid, which I did not find to be very useful.
Nice foundation if you enjoy heavy coverage foundations, but this is not for me (luckily for me I got it as a present).
It retails for 13.75 euros for 30 ml/ fl. oz.

Nice foundation,covers well and lasts long but there is one issue,it oxidise severely,I'm NC 25-30 and mistakenly I bought 52 (vanilla); first when I apply it's too light but after 10 minutes it's exactly my skin's color so I'm happy that I haven't bought the light beige ,for me it happens with all bourjois foundations ,2 years age I bought 123 foundation in beige (54) and after half an hour I was left with an orangey hue which I hated but again it was nice foundation so my advice is to go one shade lighter

Bourjois??? What are you doing?? Such amazing foundations in this line, and somehow this ugly step sister managed to sneak in. I really don't like it, the coverage is the only good point this foundation has going for it, but it's pointless having good coverage if it only lasts for an hour. This stuff manages to feel oily and powdery all at the same time. Eek, sorry, no can do.

Oily skin, coverage is a little more than medium, semi matte. I have quite bad acne scars, with a thin layer of this foundation my skin looks almost even and scars are much much less noticeable. I don't bother with a second layer.
BUT you do need to moisturise. It does become patchy after few hrs out in the cold.

If you want a natural look or expect this to be a higher coverage foundation with all the characteristics of Healthy Mix / Radiance Reveal, turn your head and find something else. This is a very thick, very matte foundation with great pigmentation that will give you a made up look. Needless to say it'll also flatten your complexion so you need to take out your arsenal of blush, bronzer, lipstick etc. This is not your everyday, slap-and-go foundation unless you are lucky enough to find a shade that matches you 100% & have non problematic skin. Overall, it is a very decent foundation but not without flaws.

If you have flaky and/or dry skin: do not use this straight up with a brush. It'll be a nightmare as it's extremely unforgiving on flakes. Using a wet sponge or spritzing your brush with water will give you a better result. I normally go in circles with sponge or brush for the first layer, then stipple around necessary areas for the second layer. If you are extremely dry or super flaky, I doubt this will work.

Colour: the very limited selection looks yellow, but when applied it's more neutral than HM / RR, which might be good or bad depending on what you need. I find the colour oxidizes a bit.

Cleansing: it's not like paint that stick to your face, so that's a plus as it has less chance of breaking you out.

Verdict: 3,5 rating. I can see why people are divided about this; either you love it or you don't. I happen to have the oily skin needed for this to work & have always loved full coverage foundation although I'm not very happy that I have to use wet sponge/brush and all the hassle of washing it afterwards. I find the finish isn't as subtle or polished as I'd like it to be, although this may come from the colour issue. I am extremely yellow and 51 in Flower Perfection is just not yellow enough.

Repurchase: Yes if I can get it in BOGO. It is not HG but decent enough to be kept in the rotation. Greater oil control than WnW Coverall although the colour is a bit off (too neutral for me) and the finish isn't as sophisticated as ELDW / ELDWL but its staying power is on par with these.

For reference: NC15-20, Laura Mercier Soft Porcelain, HM/RR 51, ELDW 1N2 Ecru, ELDWL intensity 0,5, WnW Coverall 815 Fair, Colorstay Whipped Buff
