REVIEW: Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation



Review of Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation

Guest Post By: Pranali

Finding your ‘Right’ foundation is much of a task. You get the texture right but the shade wrong and other hundred reasons to detest one single bottle that can change your life. (Yes. Makeup is life changing)
Voila! I’ve found my ‘Right’ Texture in a wrong shade. Bourjois Healthy Mix in 55 Beige Fonce or Dark Beige.  If you ever wondered or still wonder how naturally your skin can look even, kill the thought.

I love this Foundation only because it evens out my skin with that radiance that looks like I’m in the pink of my health. I blindly got this shade after the jaw line test indoors and it turned out a little darker for me in natural light. I am scared of ghostly faces. But I can still make it work with a Powder one shade lighter. And not to ignore the fact that I have Combination/Oily skin. Bourjois claims of 16 hours of staying power, but it turned out false with my combination skin. I have used this and still using this almost daily, in rain, sun or storm and it does not melt off face in sun or humidity.

I accidentally slept with my makeup once in a long journey, and  did not break out. I think Dry skinned girls will love this for the staying power.

One thing that I dislike is the oxidation, It turned out Orange few times initially. So trying at the counter on your full face is necessary before you plunge in to buy.

The Tint is made of Radiance Boosting Fruit Therapy.
  • Apricot for Radiance
  • Melon for Hydration
  • Apple for Anti-Oxidant
  • Ginger for Energy

 The Packaging is Pump bottle and semi transparent to see the product through. The pump dispenses Pea sized product with one pump, two enough for face and neck. The Texture is creamier and light, with grace of silicones. It glides on like a dream and disappears effortlessly too. The Finish is Semi-matte, honestly I think my skin looks velvety in person and pictures. Coming to Coverage, It is Medium Coverage Foundation and buildable but might not look naturally radiant.

But I love the fact that it evens out my skin, sometimes it even looks as good as natural skin.

Price of Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation

It costs INR 1120/-

The Pros of Bourjois Healthy Mix:

  1. Medium Coverage, that is buildable.
  2. The consistency is creamy and blends effortlessly.
  3. Semi-Matte Finish,
  4. Non Comedogenic
  5. Staying power for Combination skin is 8 hours or more.
  6. Survives Humidity and Sun.
  7. It is Oil-free.
  8. The Pump dispenser is hygienic.
  9. Availability across all Bourjois Counters.
  10. Photographs well with Flash, though it is no HD foundation.

The Cons of Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation

  1. It transfers on Phone in Sunny climate
  2. Shades are limited
  3. Accentuates the dry patches and dead cells if Face is not hydrated properly.

I think it’s a wonderful companion for ladies who wear makeup every single day.
I mix with moisturizer for Cold days and it works just great. And I am using Healthy mix for more than 6 months. Needless to say I am in love with it, See the FOTD for reference.


  1. i love this foundation...and one other variant of this which is a gel based foundation..i am n the shade and this is my hg product I must say...its awesome!!!

  2. I hate that it transfers on my phone as well! And it didn't stay matte on my oily skin. Other than that, it was an alright product.

  3. it makes my dry areas drier... or else it is a good one :)

  4. never tried bourjois but would love to try in future!

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

REVIEW: MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In NC42

Review of MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In Shade NC42

Guest Post By: Rmyah

There are days when I just cannot help look at myself through any reflective surface that I can. Be it mirrors, glass doors, rear view mirrors, the back of a spoon and even a pond. And then there are days when I wished everyone was blind, every mirror shattered, the serene water turbulent, anything to avoid me seeing my face. One such day when my skin was going through a blearrrgh phase I decided to put my face on the web and show you how I deal with it. My savior is the MAC studio fix fluid foundation which has been my HG foundation for about three months now.
