Bourjois 123 Perfect Foundation review

Bourjois 123 Perfect Foundation Review have proved that they might only be drugstore products, but their makeup certainly comes across high-end, the Bourjois 123 Perfect Foundation leaves your skin looking natural and flawless and it’s only £10.99.

The foundation is designed with three correcting pigments to counteract skin imperfections we all have:

  • Yellow pigments counteract dark circles
  • Mauve pigments work to brighten a dull complexion
  • Green pigments counteract any redness

These correcting pigments help to negate the need for numerous coloured concealers as they all work to ensure the skin is left with zero imperfections.

As well as the colour correcting pigments, the foundation is designed with 24-hour hydrating benefits, ideal for those with dry skin types, it doesn’t cling to the skin and feels very lightweight.

The clear glass bottle makes it look more expensive than it is, and the pump design is ideal for cleanliness and hygiene, we’ve found that one pump is the perfect amount for the whole face. But building this foundation up is not a problem either, it blends beautifully.

The 123 Perfect Foundation is available in five shades, Rose, Light Vanilla, Vanilla, Light Beige and Beige. The limited shade range is expected from drugstore foundations, but if you can find one that suits your skin colour you’ll be happy.

In 1863, Bourjois was born on the great boulevards of Paris in the theatre district, at a time when France was the world’s second leading economic power. The actor Joseph-Albert Ponsin was the company’s first creator; he prepared makeup and perfumes for actors and actresses in the comfort of his own home. In 1868, Ponsin entrusted his entire activity to Alexandre-Napoléon Bourjois. The company blossomed in the hands of Monsieur Bourjois, who made it internationally known.

The first creations were waxy makeup sticks in many colours, with amusing names like Jealous or Lovesick, specially created for theatre, by Joseph-Albert Ponsin, a genial visionary, part actor and a great cosmetologist.

His cosmetic palette broadened rapidly; the refinement and variety of his makeup brought success that extended beyond the circle of actors and actresses. His “Supplier for the Theatre” title on the makeup boxes gave way to a new tagline: “Special Manufacturer of Products for Feminine Beauty”.

Injecting a little Parisian flare into their cosmetics line, Bourjois consistently brings forth innovative products with a quality finish. Continuously evolving, Bourjois created the first double ended mascara, while striving to improve the texture and finish of their finely milled powders. As a nod to their heritage, Bourjois’ celebrated Little Round Pots have been adorned with vintage inspired Parisian scenes.
