Review Bourjois concealer and healthy mix foundation

 I've been using this foundation for the last few weeks for everyday wear. I have to say to begin with I wasn't too sure of it but I now love the foundation. I normally wear MAC Prolongwear in NC35 which is a yellow based foundation which I love as it brightens up my skin. The colour which matched me best in the Healthy Mix Foundation is N0. 54. This is a beige toned foundation and I can only really get away with it with no tan on. Seeing as I rarely get to apply tan lately this suits me perfect once I bronze up my skin. This shade no. 54 is a perfect dupe of the shade NW25 from MAC.
 Its a medium coverage foundation that really does last on combination to dry skin. For anyone that has combination/ oily skin this is perfect once its set with a powder. It would be fab on dry or mature skin as it gives a natural dewy glow without looking too shiny. I think I paid about 16 euro for this and it has lasted me so long. It applies best using a buffer type foundation brush.

Now the concealer is a different story. It all looked fab, I loved the tube packaging and the shade I got in this was 53 Dark Radiance, it looked like the sort of shade and texture I was after, which I thought looked perfect for hiding the purple tones under my eyes but it covers nothing. It blends into skin with barely any coverage and is very pale. This is one of those products you use 2 or 3 times and then forget about. A real waste of 10 euro.

Hope this helps...xx
