Ingredients: Bourjois - BB Foundation 8in1: Vanilla


Cream to powder. It is mattefying but not drying.


Light to medium, buildable.




With a buffing brush it is very easy to apply it. It covers well and it gives a natural matte to satin finish.


I’m in love with the packaging. It is genius. It is sleek, thin, black plastic. It looks like a bigger pocket mirror. You can rotate the lid in every direction which is impressive and very handy. The lid closes with a help of a magnet which is also very nice. There is a really big mirror inside and a space for a sponge.

Comparison with the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum in the shade 52 Vanilla. In the photo the shades are almost identical. I don’t even remember which one is which. :D

Bourjois - BB Foundation 8in1: Vanilla vs. Bourjois - Healthy Mix Serum in 52 Vanilla


I didn’t except a lot from this BB Cream Foundation, because all of the BB Creams I’ve tried so far failed to impress me. Either they were meant for oily skin and dried out my skin or they didn’t cover enough for my taste or they sunk into my large pores. Bourjois BB Cream Foundation is actually good. I was impressed by the coverage and the finish it gave to my skin. Although it is clearly a cream to powder product it didn’t dry out my skin. And I have to mention that my skin is very dry at the moment and this foundation didn’t accentuate my dry patches.
When I was testing I didn’t powder my skin and I also didn’t apply concealer or reapply foundation. I left it as it was for the rest of the day and waited eleven hours to see how it looked like. After eleven hours the foundation did wear off and my skin started to peek through. My whole face started to look a bit oily, but nothing major. Only the forehead was a bit too oily looking and I had to powder it.
The down side is there are only four shades available. I bought the lightest shade 21 Vanilla, which is very similar to the shade 52 Vanilla in the Healthy Mix Serum line. I have quite strong yellow undertone and the chosen shade is almost perfect for my skin tone at the moment.

Would I recommend it?

Yes. As an everyday foundation for a healthy looking skin and light make up it is great. The staying power isn’t the best, but isn’t bad either. Since my skin is very dry at the moment, I don’t know how it would react with oily skin. The big mirror is a big plus and I’m sure I’ll keep the packaging even after I use up the foundation, because it is very handy as a pocket mirror.

    Sem zelo vesela, da ima še ena takšno kožo kot jaz. Suho + rumen podton. Bourjois podlago imam v istem odtenku, tako da zdaj vem kam gledat, ko iščem pravo teksturo in odtenek podlage zase. :)

      Odlično! Trenutno imam res suho kožo. Podton pa zelo rumen. Poleti, ko potemnim, se rumen podton samo še “okrepi”. :D

    škoda. sicer se lahko glede svetlih in zelo svetlih odtenkov zanesem ravno na Bourjois.

      Ja … Tokrat žal začnejo en odtenek temneje. :(

    does it give you that itchy feeling after wearing it a couple of hours?

    • Maestra

      February 13, 2013 at 08:25

      Nope, I haven’t noticed any itchiness :think:

    Tudi za mene je žal pretemna in prerumena, se bodo moral še malo bolj potruditi z odtenki da bi me prepričali

      Ne vem, zakaj je tako težko dati ven res svetle odtenke. :S Jaz sem vesela, da je tako rumena, ker težko dobim dovolj rumene podlage zase. :D Da pa ni res svetlega odtenka, je pa res škoda. Vedno so težave z najsvetlejšimi odtenki … ne vem, zakaj je tako težko dati ven svetle odtenke …

    Takoj, ko si prvič pohvalila BB kremo, sem želela preverit teksturo. Na Rudniku v Mullerju niso še imeli testerjev, v centru sem pa ugotovila žalostno novico – najsvetlejši odtenek je definitivno pretemen zame. :sigh:

    • Maestra

      February 13, 2013 at 08:22

      Jap, odtenki so pretemni. Začnejo en odtenek temneje kot pri HM podlagah. :S Škoda.

    na prvi sliki, kjer je obraz – je tvoja leva polovica namazana s kremo?

    • Maestra

      February 13, 2013 at 08:21

      Ja, na levi strani ne nanesena podlaga. Za testiranje in fotkanje nanesem na polovico obraza, ker se tako še najbolje vidi, kako dobro izdelek prekriva.

        February 13, 2013 at 16:39

        no, potem ti pa lahko rečem, da mi je tvoja koža brez te kreme veliko lepša :D

        • Maestra

          February 15, 2013 at 08:34

          A se ti zdi??? A misliva enako? Jaz mislim levo stran fotke in svetlejšo stran obraza?

    Lepa embalaža ala Hourglass ne odtehta, da niso vključili dovolj svetlih odtenkov.

    • Maestra

      February 13, 2013 at 08:19

      Hehehe, seveda ne odtehta. Zaradi embalaže res ne bo človek kupil tri odtenke pretemne podlage. :D Če pa čisto slučajno najde človek pravi odtenek, je pa embalaža lepa in praktična. Meni je tale 21 po nekem čudežu trenutno pisan na kožo. Je pa res, da imam jaz ful rumenega podtona in so mi Bourjois podlage kar pisane na kožo.
      Res ne vem, zakaj je tako težko narediti res svetle odtenke. :S
