Project foundation: Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum gel foundation

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum gel foundation won the most votes in the Project Foundation survey and as your wish is my command one Healthy Mix Serum review coming up. :biggrin:
Like always I have the lightest shade – Light Vanilla (no. 51).

Manufacturers description

Its fresh and instant blending gel texture blends and glides onto the skin for an even, natural finish with no mask effect. Imperfections are erased, signs of fatigue are smoothed and the skin’s radiance is boosted for up to 16 hours.

Finish

Semi-matte to satin, but it does not last long on my oily skin.

Coverage

Light to medium.

Formula

Light, not runny, thicker but still not really compact. With fruity scent.

Application

As this is light coverage foundation, hands work well for application. Maybe even better than brush on my skin as this foundation does not set well. Which is probably why it quickly disappears around the problematic areas (around nose, deeper lines …).
But I can not get it to look really flawless with any of the techniques. Stippling was OK few months ago, but now I just can not make it look as good – probably conflict with my current face cream.

Packaging

Plastic bottle with the pump.

Price

~14 EUR for 30ml (1 fl.oz.).

Swatch

Oxidation is really slight and currently welcomed as my face is still darker that normal. I used thicker layer (hence the more yellowish tone + the light is warm) as this foundation blends well with my skin-tone and you’d be wondering why am I showing you my bare skin. :biggrin:

Conclusion

I was surprised to see that even this light “gel” formula did not work well with my flake skin. Even though Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum gel foundation doesn’t suit me as “all over” foundation, it works great as mixing one (to dilute full coverage foundations and lighten them) and when I don’t wish to apply foundation all over but only on problematic areas. And those are usually not flaky … go figure. :silly:
It doesn’t cover up all of the redness, but is good enough coverage for fresh and natural look.

Would I recommend it?

Well – I think this may not be my perfect foundation, but is something that could work really well for others. Maybe for those with normal to combination skin, without flaky patches who want light coverage and major plus – no. 51 is very light in coverage and color tone.

Have you already tried out Bourjois Helathy Mix Serum gel foundation?

  1. Meni je pa tole najboljši puder kar sem jih imela, pa sem imela skoraj vse od Diorja, YSL, Chanela itd. Na splošno sem obsedena s tekočimi pudri. Med manj prekrivnimi tale sigurno zmaga!

  2. Jaz sem končno kupila svoj prvi tekoči puder! Ne moreš verjeti! Gre za bratca seruma, Healthy Mix. Serum me sicer ne mika ravno zaradi slabše prekrivnosti, včasih si zaželim, da bi tudi HM bil bolj prekriven, pa je proti serumu gotovo prekrivnejši. Od Bourjoisa imam napikiranega še Flower Perfection, k sreči se odtenki ujemajo s HM odtenki, tako da ne bo spet teh ‘travm’ iskanja pravega odtenka. :wink:
    Sicer pa me serum po tvojem opisu precej spomni na BB kreme, samo da so imeli pri Bourjoisu BB kremo še preden je bilo to kul, in seruma ni bilo treba tako poimenovati. :naughty: :wink: Vsekakor pogledam za poletje!

    • Flower Perfection je pa res že orto prekriven. :biggrin: Meni originalna verzija iz neznanega razloga ne ustreza – čisto vse luske se dvignejo … tudi tam, kjer jih ponavadi nimam. Še iščem idealno podlago, če je mogoče to problem.

      Vidim, da imajo Evropske BB kreme manj ali nič TiO2, tako da jih šele počasi spoznavam (sploh, ker ni svetlih odtenkov in imajo nekam veliko alkohola za nekaj, kar je namenjeno v principu občutljivi koži :devil: ).

  3. Toliko pohval sem slišala za tale serum/puder da sem si ga morala kupit in me je čisto razočaral. Najsvetlejši odtenek je še vedno vsaj tri odtenke pretemen, prerumen in nikakršne prekrivnosti, po parih urah je pa kar ‘zlezel’ s kože, suhe predele je pa še poudaril. Bljak puder za mojo kožo in hvala bogu sem ga že oddala in se zdaj greje pri eni drugi :wink:

    • Madoniš – potem si pa pravi duhec. Če boš kje v bližini Maybelline Fit Me! podlag, si oglej njihove najsvetlejše odtenke. Meni je 110 recimo presvetel.

      • Jap, in zelo težko najdem odtenek. A tale Maybelline se da dobit pri nas ali samo v tujini?
        Sem si prejšnji teden naročila popularno BB cream od Misshe odtenek 13 in upam da bo dovolj svetel :wink:

        • Na žalost ni na voljo pri nas. :S
          Držim pesti, da bo zadosti svetla. Če ne, se ti pa še najbolj splača poseči po beli bazi … ker, če že zame ni prav veliko dovolj svetlih odtenkov …

          • Missha perfect cover 13 je dovolj svetla, vendar ni dovolj prekrivna :ermm:
            Zdaj sem pa na lovu za svetlim korektorjem :sigh:

  4. Včasih sem kar rada nosila to podlago, a ni bila nikoli moja najljubša. Prekrivnost je zame po večini preslaba in tudi finiša ne da krasnega. Sicer pa pohvale Bourjois za rumene odtenke. :biggrin:

  5. Ja ovu trenutno koristim, u takvom sam periodu da ne trazim jako pokrivanje pa mi odgovara. Nemam nekih zamjerki na nju jer mi je koza osim povremenih pristica u zadnje vrijeme u dobrom stanju pa nema nekih suhih dijelova koje bi mogla isticat. Strah me jedino da ako jos posvijetlim tokom zime mi nece postat pretamna :scared: :shock:

  6. Vedno se razveselim vaših Project Foundation postov :))
    Ste me spomnile, da sem trenutno sama na lovu za novim pudrom – trenutno uporabljam Alverde mineralnega, ampak imam občutek, da mi povzroča mozolje. Zato se spet silim s Catrice Photo Finish, ampak mi nekaj ne paše. Bourjous imajo itak vse odtenke rumene, torej to odpade – čeprav mi je HM back in the day, ko še nisem imela pojma o podtonih, bil super. MaxFactor naj bi imel večino odtenkov hladnih, veste kaj o tem? Če se prav spominm, ni v tem projektu nibenega MF pudra, ane?

    • :rose:

      Kaj pa Deborah? Mogoče celo njihova nova BB krema? L’Oreal Lumi podlage tudi delujejo obetavno … samo ne vem kako je z barvno shemo.

      LOL – prav imaš, MF ima ali pretemne ali preveč roza odtenke za naju. Novi Face Finity je sicer barvno zelo obetaven, vendar precej prekriven (Revlon ColorStay rang), tako da oklevam z nakupom.

  7. lsni ga sam ga gledal ali ga na kraju nisam uzela pa mislim da cu to ove godine
