After trawling through many foundations and BB creams over the years, I've finally found a foundation that works well with my skin and isn't going to break the bank.
This foundation, priced at £10.99, has 3 correcting pigments; yellow pigments to correct dark circles, mauve pigments to give an anti-dull complexion, and green pigments to counteract redness. Do I think these pigments work? Yes.
This foundation also has SPF 10 to provide protection from the sun all day long, whilst also claiming to provide 24 hour hydration. Although it has SPF which can often give a white cast to the face during flash photography, this foundation does not. And yes, I do believe that it does hydrate my skin- perfect for all year round.
The finish of this foundation is very silky/satin like and gives a very natural yet perfected look. It blends like a dream and doesn't go patchy throughout the day. Very low maintenance indeed- what more could a girl want?
Coverage wise, i'd say this foundation gives a light/medium coverage, depending on how good your skin is. I have acne marks and a few spots, but this foundation covers everything beautifully and can be layered up for an even fuller coverage. Bourjois claim that this is like a 'second skin' and has a 'melting texture', and let me tell you, they aren't lying.
The lasting power of this foundation is reasonable judging by the price and my oily skin type, and lasts on my skin before starting to wear off for around 7 hours- not too shabby!
If your skin is very sensitive to fragranced products, this may not be for you as its scent is quite perfumed and may irritate some. Although, my skin is very susceptible to breakouts and this product has not broken me out *touches wood*, so maybe try out a sample before purchasing the full size.
If you prefer more of a matte finish or if you have oily skin like myself, a light dusting of face powder can be used over the top to reduce any shine and set the foundation so that it lasts all day.
If any of you have tried this foundation out let me know your thoughts in the comments, or if anyone has any other recommendations of products please let me know! - Jess x
