Bourjois Radiance Reveal Healthy Mix Foundation Review

After seeing this foundation rated highly across blogs and vlogs alike, a little while ago I thought it was time I picked it up for myself to see what all the fuss was about!

The Bourjois Radiance Reveal Healthy Mix Foundation is formulated with a number of fruity ingredients to leave you with a flawless complexion. The combination of apple, melon and apricot is designed to leave skin looking youthful, hydrated and radiant. 

Unsurprisingly, the combination of these natural ingredients gave it a really delightful scent - which is obviously quite pleasant for something you're going to be rubbing all over your face! 

The foundation comes in 8 different shades, and as a true English rose, their lightest shade - aptly named 'Lightest Vanilla' - was the best fit for my skin tone. I'd describe it as having a medium coverage, which is easy to build up and the generally the formula blends very well. 

The packaging claims that the foundation is long lasting, and you can expect great coverage for up to 16 hours. Sadly for me, this was far from the truth. I experimented with using this on its own, with and without powder and with and without my favourite Benefit POREfessional - but generally found its longevity to be limited. 

While using a primer did make the foundation last a little better, it was marginal. After applying in the morning, come lunch time, the dewy coverage I'd relished earlier had all but disappeared.

Having nearly come to the end of my pot of this stuff, I can certainly say I've persevered. Unfortunately, it isn't one for me and won't be making it to my repurchase list.

The Healthy Mox Fiubdation retails for around £9.99 at Boots.
