HANDS UP! Who could not help but find themselves running out to get a bottle of the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation after watching Lisa Eldridge’s video on how to create a flawless foundation finish?
When I first watched that video, I was like ‘WOW! This must be the best foundation in the world!’, then on second thoughts, ‘Meh, must be one of those sponsored products… that’s why she’s saying all these nice stuff’. But as the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation got utilized in many of her other videos, coupled with some research done on my own, it seemed the consensus that it’s a must-have drugstore foundation!
I wanted to wait for a sale, as I felt I had more than enough foundation to see me through for a long time, and so… buying another foundation at a sale would help to reduce the guilt of owning one too many. No? *grins*
The 30% off Singapore Tampines BHG sale came at the right time and the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation was one of the two Bourjois foundations I purchased. I reviewed the Bourjois Flower Perfection Foundation earlier.
Great Match For Skin With Yellow Undertone
Even though the ‘auntie’ (it’s how we address any older woman in Singapore) was just a promoter at the Bourjois counter, and not a qualified MUA, I was glad she recommended the right foundation shade for me. Some promoters are rather hopeless, they’ll just pour a big glob of foundation on your hand, spread it the length of your arm and say “This also can, that also can. Up to you”. Grrrr.
While the Bourjois Flower Perfection Foundation 52 goes on slightly pink on my skin, the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in 52 is a perfect match for my MAC NC20-25 skin tone.
I’m surprised a European makeup brand, and despite complaints that the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation has limited range of shades, can produce a foundation shade that is so suitable for Asian skin, which typically has yellow undertones.
You can see the Healthy Mix Foundation is more yellow and it fits me to a T!
Oh, recently a friend commented that I look like Little Miss Sunshine:
