I am a huge foundation hoarder and I can’t help but get my hands on the latest and greatest foundations that launch in Australia. However, when I received the new Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation and Concealer, I was in for a huge surprise. You’ll realise that in my heading, it only says concealer – I have yet to try the foundation as the colour sent to me was too light (I’m not that dark either) but I still really wanted to try the concealer!
I get really excited when I find out a brand has reformulated their product – it means they’ve surveyed their audience, listened carefully and took action to make their product even better. So here is my review on the reformulated Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer!
Packaging and Price
Let’s first talk about the packaging of the concealer. The Healthy Mix Concealer has a red lid with red detailing making it contrast with the bottle itself which is the shade of the concealer. I love when you can see through the bottle – makes it a lot easier to pick your shade in the store. The bottle is glass and heavy which makes it look and feel expensive. The concealer comes with a super soft flocked applicator works really well against the skin. It applies nicely and distributes product evenly. The concealer retails for $20 at select Priceline stores and pharmacies which is affordable fora drugstore concealer. The product comes with 7.8ml of product and I feel that it could last about 3 months if used regularly.
The Healthy Mix reformulation includes ingredients that are meant to help brighten and waken your skin when feeling fatigued. The blend of helpful ingredients include Vitamins C, E and B5 which are known to help make the complexion look radiant and gives that healthy glow we all want. The concealer includes spherical powders which help blur those blemishes and fine lines we don’t want, and light-reflecting pigments for a natural radiant finish.
I decided to test out the concealer over the weekend and wear it multiple times to see how it would apply with different primers, foundations and powders/no powders. Now, I’m too lazy to conceal blemishes – I feel my foundation does that enough for me on an everyday basis. I use concealer mainly for under my eyes – I go 2 shades lighter to brighten and waken up my eyes. A lot of makeup artists may disagree with me but I wear my concealer on it’s own; I don’t apply concealer then foundation on top, I find it cakes up way too much. So the first night I applied the concealer and my foundation as normal with The Ordinary Silicone Primer underneath (this stuff is amazing). I also did not powder under my eyes just to put the concealer to the test. And guess what guys? It did not freaking budge the entire night.
The second time I tried the concealer, I tried it with my favourite translucent powder – the Laura Mercier Invisible Loose Setting Powder and it was the same. Did. Not. Move.
I loveeeee coming home and looking at myself in the mirror to find my make up is in tact. I didn’t see any creasing either which is probably the number 1 concern when it comes to buying an under eye concealer. It did not wear off, it did not crease and it hid under eye dark circles! It’s good stuff right?! I’m so lucky that this concealer was sent to me as I would have never picked it up in store otherwise!
So, final verdict? It’s totally worth trying! I really enjoyed testing out this concealer and have continued to wear it everyday. So if you’re on the hunt for a new concealer, the Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer is a must try!
