Let me present you one of my all time favourite liquid foundations: Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum! And in my today's post I'm going to tell you exactly why I love it so much! I used to use the Bourjois Healthy Mix Radiance Reveal foundation, and I loved it; as a matter of fact, I loved all of the Bourjois foundations and concealers that I tried out! I heard great reviews about the Healthy Mix Serum version, so I was eager to try this one out too! I finally managed to get my hands on it in Muller drugstore in Croatia, when I was visiting my family :-)
I picked the shade #52 Vanilla (which was the lightest shade they had in their offer, but I heard that in some countries, they have even lighter shade, #51). I'm very pale, but the shade #52 works well for me, I could even purchase the shade #53 and mix them together, for even more perfect result, and for an additional hint of colour, as in winter time, I tend to become even too pale!
Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum is a foundation that simply glides on your face and blends in perfectly! It leaves you with a very fresh feeling, and because of its gel- cream version, it is so lightweight on your face, you don't even feel like you're wearing make up on your face.
It leaves you with a very natural looking skin, only perfected! It has got a semi-matt finish and it's ineed a very long lasting foundation (tested during a long car ride from Croatia to Italy).
Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation will basically boost your skin's radiance and will have that awesome anti-age effect, as it contains vitamin-rich fruit complex (lychee, goji berries and pomegranate). Its texture is, as I've mentioned, ultra fresh and light, so it will provide you an instant anti- fatigue effect!
Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum has quickly become one of my favourite liquid foundations and I know it's a product I'll keep repurchasing for the years to come.
It doesn't have a super thick coverage, so you might want to use your heavy- duty concealer in case you need to cover up some problematic spots on your face.
I'd compare it to Chanel's Vitalumiere Aqua foundation, which I used in the past, and also loved! In fact, Bourjois products are very similar to Chanel's...it must be because they're owned by the same company! The only difference is in the price (Bourjois is much more affordable, drugstore price range), and the packaging, which might be less posh, but it's still quite cute and well thought!
Here is how this foundation acts on my face (I'm enclosing a non-photoshoped, no-filter close up photo, so you can better see the results of Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum on my face):
As you can tell, it gives a very natural looking, even finish and revived complexion. My skin is currently normal, with dry tendency, so I need a good hydrating products that will help to lock in the much needed moisture, but even though this foundation will give you radiance and a healthy glow, it definitely won't make your skin look oily or greasy.
If you have more oily skin, you can always set it with a mattifying compact or loose powder, as a finishing touch!
I find that Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum delivered all that it promised, and it certainly exceeded my expectations!

In case you're interested to see how it compares to Chanel Vitalumier Aqua, here is my review on youtube that I filmed a couple of years ago:

Also, I wanted to mention, from now on, I'll try to include more beauty related posts on my blog too! I love posting outfit photos on my blog, but the original idea for this blog was to cover all the variety of topics, ranging from beauty, fashion, to lifestyle, so these are exactly the topics I'm going to try and post more about in the future!
