I have two hours before I have to leave my warm bedroom and battle the Welsh weather to go down to the estate agents, so time for a post! (btw, looking for a second year house is killing me, WAI SO IMPOSSIBLE! :P)
I bought Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation (in 51, Light Vanilla) a couple of weeks ago, and now I've worn it for a few nights out (and during the day too :P) so I can review it :) This foundation has been raved about and loved by beauty bloggers and the general public (it won the 2011 Make-Up Product of the year for the consumer study of product innovation), so it's not entirely surprising that I'm going to add myself to its list of fans.
This foundation has a good range of shades, I tested 51 light vanilla, and 52 vanilla, and the chose the 51 (the lightest of the range). The darkest isn't that dark though, it's more a deep tan colour, but I'm very pale, so in the summer I won't even get near to the darkest (Shade 58).
I wore this with my primer on underneath, and it lasted all day perfectly, so I adore it in that respect. Because my forehead is weirdly dry I have to mix it with a little moisturiser for that part of my face or it doesn't look as smooth, but that's just me, even when I moisturise loads before putting foundation on my forehead is never happy :P This foundation provides medium coverage and gives me dewy glowy skin (not much of a fan of a matte face so this is perfect for me :P)
Fairly good colour range
Nice smell (sort of like apricots and sun cream, but a lot milder :P)
Stays for a long timeNice dewy finish
The packaging! (I'm a very 'judge a book by its cover' girl about make up, and I know I shouldn't be, this is a great product, so I'm just nit picking at this point XD)
This is a great high street foundation, it's only £9.99 and I think it's fabulously cheap for how good it is, I really recommend it :)
On a side note, these are my new shoes :D My boyfriend got them for me (even though it was his birthday :P). I'd seen these in Republic and thought they were cute, they were £20 (I think) in the sale, but as I'm saving for my holiday I couldn't buy them. A few days later (on his birthday) he surprised me with these ^ - ^ (Don't worry, he got a birthday present too :P)
