I am writing this post while sitting in the library supposedly revising for my European Union law exam and fancied talking about something a little less demanding on the brain.
I seem to have a collection of half empty Boujois Health Mix foundations. There are three reasons for this;
a) I travel from home to uni a lot and therefore find it reassuring to have one at each house.
b) I change between shade 51 and 52 depending on the time of year and also fake tan. ( I am NC20 for reference)
c) I like to buy another before I run out, in order never to experience the horror when you run out of foundation before a big night out or have to brave the high street without your war paint on.
This foundation has been in my make-up bag for around 2yrs, I talked about it recently on my most loved post Here . So it is only right that I give it review all of its own due to the 2yrs of testing it has been given.
I was always a high coverage girl think Esstee Lauder double-wear, Mac studio fix and Benefit stick foundation. I was always looking for one that gave more and more coverage. On a whim when this foundation was doing the rounds on the blogs I tried it and this is when my transition into not so intensely matte and full coverage foundations happened. In fact I am now on the hunt for the perfect coverage with a perfect glow. Link Here to my post on dewy foundations on my wish list.
I find that this foundation provides enough coverage to hide my red cheeks while also not looking matte and covered in make-up. I even find that it last a good 6hr on its own and around 8hr with powder (as always not the 16hr it claims). However, if on a windy rainy day like the last few days here in the UK I tend to opt for something with a bit more staying power. I also opt for a different foundation on a night out which is going to last longer in a hot club.
However, as far as I can see on the packaging it contains no SPF which means that in photos you do not look ghostly white or a different colour to the rest of your body. For a day to day foundation I have no qualms at all and it has inspired me to go back and try other drug store foundations as I believe they have improved considerably in the last 4 years.
The fact I have been coming back to this foundation for such a long time surely means there must be something that keeps drawing me back?
What is your favorite foundation high-end or drug store?
