I’ve been going through my make up/blog photos and there are so many that I’ve started to forget what I have reviewed and what I haven’t.
I don’t think I have reviewed this yet. If I have, then you will have to read it twice.
I bought this Bourjois Mineral Matte Foundation a good few months ago – I liked the idea of getting a little brush with it and I wanted to be convinced by a mousse foundation – so far not impressed by any.
This was something like £12…expensive I think, for a drugstore level foundation.
I got shade 85 which is one of the darker ones they do. It matches up to me NC35 skin tone perfectly.
I like the brush it comes with a lot, just because I like firm textured brushes for putting foundation on.
The brush is small but made to fit the foundation jar…like so….
Dab dab dab….
The mousse is quite a firm textured one, which feels silky when applied to the skin but also a little oily on me. It settles down nicely though to give a nice semi-matte finish.
Its so easy to put too much of this on especially when you’re watching breakfast tv at the same time so I would say, not dab, dab, dab but dab.
Anyway – I don’t think this foundation is brilliant at controlling oil and if you are from a hot or humid climate, forget it – but otherwise I sort of really really like this base!
Why do I like it?
Its quick. Extremely quick. Effortless really. Two dabs, swirl swirl and a evened out, smooth complexion is mine (even though I think it doesn’t do so great with controlling oil).
A bit of powder on top would set it for I think.
I also like the finish which is a semi-matte on me, quite flawless really.
This bit on the packaging made me laugh:
100% Satisfied Customers! Cool! Then I read:
C’mon Bourjois! You can do better than 22 women from your office block testing out this foundation, surely?
Wouldn’t recommend for super oily women or for ladies in humid environments.
But I would rebuy it cos its super quick to use, gives a nice even base.
