The Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation is designed to enhance the skin’s natural radiance, whilst evening out the complexion – and that it does, it’s a gorgeous foundation, in fact one of our favourite drugstore products.
The foundation is formulated with crystalline pigments and fruity ingredients for an instant anti-fatigue result. It’s also enriched with a fruit therapy formula to enhance complexion.
Apricot for radiance
Melon for hydration
Apple as an antioxidant
Ginger for energy
Rich in vitamins, it’ll also work to erase imperfections and keep the skin looking fresh and glowing with natural light.
It has a soft, fresh texture that easily blends into the skin for a comfortable flawless finish. It has a medium, buildable coverage that doesn’t look cakey on the skin.
It’s available to buy in a range of eight shades too.
It claims to last 16 hours, but we don’t think it’s quite as long as that and using a powder to set it in place is a must if you have particularly oily skin.
The packaging is durable and hard wearing, and the pump dispenses just enough product for full-face coverage.

Doesn’t last as long as high-end foundations
The Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation has a beautiful finish that blends into the skin really well and goes virtually undetectable. With a medium, buildable coverage and a slight dewy finish you know you’re going to have healthy-looking glowing skin with this Bourjois offering. If you have oily skin you might find it best to set this foundation in place with a powder, but don’t worry, it doesn’t slide all over your face after an hour’s wear.

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.

The Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation creates a gorgeous flawless finish, which feels lightweight on the skin, has a gorgeous skin-like dewy finish that’s shimmer free. What’s more it doesn’t exaggerate fine lines and pores, ensuring you’re ready for your close-up with this foundation. The medium-buildable coverage is easy to blend and sits beautifully on the skin too. The only downside to this foundation is that you might find you need a touch up as the day wears on, but make it last that little longer with a translucent powder on top.

You’re left with radiance, and a soft-focus finish that instantly conceals imperfections and that’s why we love this foundation, it’s just a shame that there is a limited colour range.
