Bourjois 123 Perfect Foundation - Rave Review

Hi everyone,

Good news is I have finally finished all my essays for uni and am now about to go home for 2 weeks to revise for exams and then I'm done! Yay!

So yesterday after having finished my essays I popped to Boots and treated myself to a new foundation. I had previously been using the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation, which I really love - it gives perfect medium coverage and does make your skin look really awake. The only problem is my skin is going through a really oily stage at the moment, especially on my cheeks and the Rimmel foundation was making me look way too shiny and I hate powdering too much, I prefer a less obvious makeup look.

So I went to the Bourjois stand ready to pick up the Healthy Mix Foundation which I know from experience that I love and works well on my skin (I wore it in 30 degree heat on holiday last year and didn't suffer from oilyness). However, whilst at the stand I saw that there was an offer for the new 123 Perfect Foundation, which was £4 off making it only £6.99. When I read the claims of the foundation it said it offered an even complexion, lasting coverage and a matte finish, which I thought sounded perfect!

So I thought I would give it a try today and so far I must say I absolutely love it. There's no sign of shininess on my face even though I've been out, been packing and generally rushing about! It has stayed put perfectly and covered my oilyness but is really natural and doesn't have that obvious makeup look or feel. I am extremely impressed!

You can pick up the Bourjois 123 Perfect Foundation for the reduced price at Boots instore or on their website here!
