I thought I’d do a little review of this. It’s a new foundation from Bourjois and after reading Nooberella’s review of it Here I had to buy. Check her out if you haven’t already!
OK so it comes in a satisfying black shiny screw top pot. Yes. I like the packaging. I also like the novelty aspect of it coming with a tiny kabuki brush you need to use to apply it.
So what they say:
What I say:
First the colours, there were about five shades available in Superdrug and I picked the palest. It looked too yellow in the pot but I went for anyway, this was shade 81. In actual fact it was a fabulous match for my pale skin. I really didn’t expect it to be. Impressed.
The foundation itself looks like a little pot of thick mousse which you dab the kabuki into and buff into your face. This works really well, pretty much a flawless coverage, lovely colour match beautiful finish. It really struggled to cover a spot I had on my chin, but it claims to be light coverage so I’ll let that slide.
So far so good right? Yes but then it all went wrong.
I have normal skin, prone to hormonal spots once a month but otherwise I tend to have bits of dryness. You wouldn’t have thought it. By lunchtime this stuff was sliding all over my face settling in unflattering clumps around my nostrils, in my wrinkles, just yuck.
Next morning I had a new spot. I wasn’t too worried because y’know I do get the odd spot from time to time. So I tried the foundation again yesterday. Same again really, looked awesome, applied well, but by lunch…not so much.
I won’t be using this again. Here’s the kicker though.
I woke up today with a face full of teenage acne. Nice. I’m 35!
