Bourjois healthy mix foundation and healthy mix serum

Healthy mix foundation - £9.99

I've always been a little bit of a high end foundation kind of girl, but these two bottles gave some firm favorites of mine a run for their money. Both of these foundations add a serious amount of glow and radiance to my skin, perfect considering my skin is dull and often broke out. I feel that the serum is more glowly than the original foundation though. The serum is targeted towards dry skin, whereas the foundation is targeted towards oily skin. However, I wear either but find that dry patches show more when using the foundation.

In terms of coverage, both offer medium build-able coverage. I would say that the foundation version is a little more higher coverage. They both last on the skin for around eight hours, definitely not living up to the 16hr claim on the serum bottle. However, everyone's skin is different and my skin never really holds foundation that well, even with primer and powder.

Overall, my favourite is probably the serum because it is more luminous and light weight. However, on days when my skin just hates me, I reach for the foundation because of the higher coverage.


Which is your favourite?

  10. Oooh I'm quite interested in the serum, I tired the original healthy mix years ago and absolutely hated it. I also find that most Bourjois foundations are quite yellow for my skintone. :-)
