Bourjois Happy Light Foundation





Bourjois are seriously on a roll with their foundations! I was already a mahoosive fan of the Healthy Mix Serum Foundation, and now they've just gone and done it again with another fantastic addition. 

First of all, the packaging is so sweet and the name of the foundation itself is even sweeter. On the packaging it says 'luminous and flawless complexion in any light' and it also claims to correct without masking, is light enhancing and promises 8 hour hydration. Now the reason I picked this up (other than the fact that new releases get me weirdly excited) was because recently my skin has been lashing out on me quite harshly. I've got a few dry patches on my skin where the weather change has effected it and its making me not want to apply foundation, film any videos, and quite frankly leave the house! 

So I saw this in Superdrug and quite literally ran and had a little play and a swatch. The consistency of it is so nice, as it states in the name it is light and it feels as if there is nothing really on your skin. I'd say it's got the feeling of a BB cream, but the coverage of a foundation, I would say it's probably light to medium coverage but more towards the medium. So this really drew me in and I thought it would be perfect to help cover my awful skin. And I was right! It glides so nicely onto the skin and doesn't cling to any dry patches on my skin whatsoever, which I was extremely grateful for! 

As far as I could see, it came in 5 shades which isn't really a great spectrum as usual from Bourjois, although better than the Healthy Mix one. However I think it is an absolutely fantastic drugstore foundation. Probably one of my favourites that I've tried this year! It just gives such a nice glow to the skin but it probably wouldn't be the best for those oily skinned people out there as it is quite luminous. However it has got great staying power and I honestly can't wait to use it again tomorrow! I wear mine in 52 Light Beige.

They do also feature a concealer and two different serum primers in the collection, one luminous primer for normal to dry skin and one matte primer for oily skin. So I am extremely excited about trying out those also!


If you're interested, I'd definitely head down to a Boots or Superdrug now as they're on offer!

Have any of you tried any of this collection yet? If so what are your thoughts? Or are any of you interested in trying it?
