Bourjois Happy Light Foundation Review!


I'm probably a little late jumping on the Happy Light bandwagon, but after using Mac's studio fix fluid for what seems like years, I soon came to the conclusion that I just needed a change, or else I would go insane. I think it's good to try different foundations out now and again to see what does and doesn't work for you. I've heard about Bourjois foundation's forever but there seems to be so many different types of the healthy mix one everyone talks about that I just decided to go for something completely different and eliminate the hassle.

I wanted something with medium coverage that I could wear on a daily basis that would last roughly about 6 hours without having to touch-up or powder. I also wanted it to have a luminous but not dewy finish, and match my skin tone, too much to ask? Well, It has a stunning finish, nothing too shiny, but definitely not matte. It feels like i'm literally not wearing anything on my face when I use this, I really mean it. It has an incredibly airy texture that just feel so lightweight, and at the same time I'm still getting the light-medium coverage I asked for, depending on how much I use (1-2 pumps usually). I'm definitely a powder girl, so when I realised I didn't have to wear powder and actually enjoyed this without powder I was so pleased.

As far as matching my skin tone goes, this is literally perfect, I couldn't have asked for better. I bought it in shade N50 Porcelain, the lightest shade (boo!). Unfortunately, as far as I'm aware the shade range is tiny compared with the likes of L'oreal True match for instance at only 5 shades! So if you struggle buying drugstore foundations unless you have a million different shades to choose from, this probably won't be for you. Nonethelsss if you happen to pass a Bourjois stand in the near future I absolutely 100% recommend you at least go try it for yourself.

Have you ever tried a Bourjois foundation before? Do you prefer light, medium, or heavy coverage from a foundation?

Have a great day!
