I've been a massive fan of the Bourjois 123 Perfect foundation which is one of my all time ultimate faves and have repurchased it a few times. I love to change my foundation up, in fact all my make up as frequently as I can afford to, given I already love Bourjois I thought I'd try another of their foundations and this time I picked up the Healthy Mix Foundation in the shade No 51 Light Vanilla and 56 Light Bronze. One for when I'm pale and another when I'm tanned and I can mix them together for when I'm anywhere in between.
They recently had a little revamp in this foundation and I have to say I much prefer this packaging, I didn't try the old version so can't compare the product itself but I don't believe it has changed significantly. They have added in some more skin benefits like vitamins C, E and B5 which claims to give an instant anti fatigue effect. This foundation also claims to keep your complexion radiant for up to 16hrs.

Not forgetting the Healthy Mix Concealer which I bought in the shade Light, this also contains the same skin benefits as the foundation and claims to erase signs of imperfections and signs of fatigue.

What do I think of the foundation? well, in short, I love it, I love this as an every day foundation, it's quite a natural foundation with medium coverage and just feels very hydrating on my skin. I've not tested it out for 16hrs because that's just crazy long but I wear it for around 12 hours and lasts nice all day, I mean it's not perfect by the end of the day but I don't fix my make up throughout the day and i'd say it still looks pretty good when I get home. I have to say my skin can look slightly oily at the end of the day with this foundation and I don't have oily skin, I have normal to dehydrated so I would say if you have oily skin definitely keep a powder with you.

Does the concealer live up to the foundation? I could take it or leave it to be honest, I'm not blown away by it. By no means is it rubbish it's a pretty nice concealer I'm just not wowed by it like I am with the foundation and tend to use my Maybelline eraser concealer or Urban Decay concealer with this foundation which I much prefer. I will still use the Bourjois concealer up as there isn't anything wrong with it, as I said, it's just not anything special in my opinion.

I bought all of these in the 3for2 deal in Boots so highly recommend you take advantage of the offer, your getting a product for free so why not! The foundation cost me £9.99 which is about standard for a drugstore foundation and the concealer costs £8.99 which again is standard pricing.

Have you tried this foundation out? what is your favourite drug store foundation? Let me know in the comments below.
