One cosmetic item I'm not partial to hoarding is foundation. I own two, which includes the one you'll hear about further today, Revlon Nearly Naked, and Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum. I've learnt that research is key when buying a new base item, and I'm pleased to report that both foundations are used often and take pride of place in my makeup bag.
Some days, I have more imperfections than I care to cover with concealer, which is when I whip out my bottle of this stuff. For £8.99, it's hardly bank breaking but it is fair to say that for drugstore, that's of the higher end. The bottle is a thick, clunky glass which adds a couple of pounds onto the visual value of the product. I must admit I love it when something looks more expensive than it is - who doesn't?
I would have much preferred a black cap over white purely so that it doesn't get as dirty as quickly whilst hovering in my makeup bag. We all know that a grubby orange cap isn't exactly glamorous. Fom looking at the packaging, I instantly connote purity, and definitely nearly-nakedness.
Although I love Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum for the all-round glow factor, this is much more suited for when I need more coverage and a longevity which will see me out from the beginning of the day to the end. For my skin, it does a fabulous job of covering bits and bobs I'd rather not have glaring in peoples faces, and evening skin tone. Sufficiently, I find that it keeps my skin looking more flawless for around 8-9 hours. I say 'more' because this isn't a photo-ready, blank canvas type of base. It's sheerer and more natural than that, which is all I ask for when on the hunt for a school-suitable product.
