Bourjois Healthy Mix Anti-Fatigue Foundation & Concealer: Review and Swatches
Founded all the way back in the 1860's in Paris, France, Bourjois is a brand that I've always heard about but never actually tried! Available exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart and Shoppers Beauty Boutique online, Bourjois is introducing a new generation of their beloved Healthy Mix foundation and concealer. So how well do these vitamin-infused products work? Read my review and see some swatches to find out......

Bourjois Healthy Mix Anti-Fatigue Foundation ($35 CAD):
Packaged in a nice and sturdy glass bottle equipped with a pump dispenser, the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation is formulated with Vitamin C, E, and B5, which promises to brighten and awaken tired-looking skin. The range is available in seven shades and I have here the color "51 Light Vanilla", which is a neutral ivory that oxidizes to a warmer light beige. In my hand swatches below, the product appears a little sheer and thin but the formulation is actually quite pigmented and creamy. The application is nice and smooth and the coverage is medium to full. As you can see, it did a great job at covering the redness around my nose.

The foundation has a natural satin finish and it minimizes skin imperfections without settling into fine lines or emphasizing pores. In terms of wear, the Healthy Mix Foundation is also great. At the end of the day, there were some fading and creasing around my nose but no excessively greasiness or pilling. So all in all, this is a solid mid-range foundation. The color selection is definitely limited and the pigments did oxidize a bit but the overall application, coverage, and longevity are impressive!

Bourjois Healthy Mix Anti-Fatigue Concealer ($20 CAD):
Available in only three shades, the Healthy Mix concealer is housed in a short and chubby plastic tube with a classic doe-foot applicator. Although the packaging looks small, you get a generous 7.8ml of product (versus the normal 6ml). Containing all the same skin-loving ingredients as the foundation, the Healthy Mix Concealer is specifically designed to brighten and camouflage undereye circles. I have here the lightest shade, "51 Light", which is a light ivory with a warm undertone. The formulation provides a medium to full coverage and while it's lightweight and easy-to-blend, it looks a little dry and patchy on certain areas of the face. Because I have oily skin, things actually balance out after a few hours and the concealer wears nicely throughout the day with minimal fading and creasing. However, this is not a concealer I would recommend for combination or dry skin and the limited shade range is definitely a big drawback.
