Bourjois Paris: Healthy Mix Foundation Review

Hi everyone,

Today I’ll be reviewing the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation (Duh!) I really like this foundation, really reminds me of one of my Estee Lauder ones, but I can’t recall the name, OOPS!

Bourjois Healthy Mix

Cost: £9.99 This is how much it cost me, you may find it cheaper or more expensive elsewhere, but I got mine from Boots
Available in: Boots/Superdrugs (Any other Highstreet Retailer/drugstore)

The shade I got mine in, is 54, the shade name is Beige, which comes out quite dark on my face, which means I got the wrong colour, but I’m not that fussed, because it blends in nicely and doesn’t leave any streaky marks from my brush/applicator. They do have a nice range of colours available, but unfortunately you can only test on your hands and my hand isn’t the same colour as my face, weird I know!

Shade 54 Beige

Application: It applies very smoothly and has a soft satin-like texture, it feels great and lightweight on your skin. It reminds me of BB creams, it’s that lightweight and leaves a subtle glow/dewyness on the skin, which I love!!! Mind you, it doesn’t make you look shiny or oily, just dewy, which I think looks great and natural. The actual product feels like a cream but a little more runny, but you can totally control how much you want to use, the pump is just great. It does have a smell, but it’s not noticeable, it’s not a bad smell either and it’s not a smell I can relate to anything else, but I didn’t notice it when I used it, I only noticed it when I sniffed it now =D

Pump

Coverage: I would say it has a medium to full coverage, I used less than one pump which is very little and I used this on my whole face and it covered all my redness and evened out my skin tone perfectly. I do believe if you use one pump, that would be enough to cover your whole face and neck. I don’t really have blemishes on my face, but I certainly have discolouration from when I was younger and I had eczema on my face =( and it totally took them away, which is fab! I did however need to use my concealer on my hideous under eye dark circles, but they’re real bad lately!

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation

Ingredients: This product has some really strange ingredients I don’t remember seeing in any other foundation I’ve used, but I really don’t mind them. Not sure if they’re going to benefit my skin, but at least I don’t feel like I’m ruining my skin by using this product =P It has Apricot for radiance/Melon for hydration/Apple as an antioxidant and Ginger for Energy

Lasting Power: It says it’s supposed to last for 16hrs, I mean I don’t wear my foundation for that long, but the longest I wore it for was 6 hrs and it did last without touch ups!!! And I didn’t even set my foundation with powder once, which is great. I have normal to dry skin, so I didn’t feel the need, but people with oily skin might have to set this with powder.

Overall I think this product is super EXCELLENT and I recommend it to you all!!!!!!!!!!! I love that it makes you glow and I love love loveee the pump!!

Woodland Trust – Tree Planting

Woodland Trust is the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity. Their main aim is to create a country filled with native woods/trees for the purpose of everyone’s enjoyment.

They work with a variety of schools to help plant more trees as well as protecting woods/trees that have already been planted.

They also inspire children to enjoy the woods and value having trees.

A few weeks ago, some of the children from William Austin Junior School had a chance to plant some new trees in the hopes that it will enhance the local area.

Yamin & Ayaan

Why not help and get involved and help make a difference for the future!

The Hijab That I Wear

Don’t ask me why
I voice a little sigh

And sometimes I cry
From wondering why

The world can be cruel
People can be vicious

But sometimes I think
Life is so precious

People see me different
Sometimes they even stare

I want to call them rude
But I don’t ever dare

I have a strange dress code
Some like to think

So they stare so badly
And they don’t even blink

They don’t even realise
I don’t want the attention

Instead of receiving blank stares
I’d like some affection

At the end of the day
I try to walk with a smile on my face

I walk with my hijaab on my head
Full of modesty and grace

Hijab

I love that I’m a Muslimah
I think it’s just great

But others like to mock me
And give me some hate

They give me creepy looks,
And sometimes they swear,

Sometimes I think,
Why do they even care?

As I ignore them,
And cover my hair,

I walk with humility,
With the hijab that I wear.©
