Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation & concealer

The Foundation:

To me, this is a cross between old Healthy Mix and Healthy Mix Serum with added glow. I liked the amount of coverage it gives me, because skin still looks like my skin and not a mask. The coverage is light and absolutely buildable.

I have a combo skin, so I have to powder over the zone as I don’t want itto be glowing throughout the day, which at the same time prolongs the staying of the foundation. It is very moisturizing, smells like fruits too :)

Color-wise this becomes almost perfect match after it slightly oxidizes. It looks more yellowish right after application, but quickly becomes more yellow-beige like. Amazing for both with yellow or red undertones. 
Would I recommend it?
YES! If you have yellow undertone and wish for nice foundation with glow effect, then you should check out the new Healthy Mix foundation. I would not recommend it for oily skin though. Therefore, it is perfect for dry to combined skin.

I love it I love it I love it.

The Concealer:

I got this in 62 Beige rose, which is a red/orang-ish toned shade. This wand is the farthest thing from being a concealer, not even close! Just like the YSL Touche Eclat, being misunderstood for being a concealer while it is a highlighting wand, the healthy mix illuminator works really well if you use it as a highlighter, but not a concealer. It is too light to cover anything, and if you want it to work, you have to layer it over many other products, which doesn't make any sense. So I use it around my mouth and over my forehead.

It is available in 3 shades, so I have to try other colors to decide & make up my mind whether I love or hate this product. I love Bourjois, and I am really in love with the healthy mix foundation. Therefore, I cannot decide that this product is not for me until I try other shades. However, the brush pen is really good and easy to apply directly to your undereye areas. The formula didn't cause me any kind of inflammation or irritation at all. It has many other advantages which is good for your skin: it has vitamins E & C which act as antioxidants. Although this product has not concealed my dark circles, it has illuminated my eye area and smoothed out the imperfections.

The Beige Rose shade suits those who have veins around their eyes which helps them conceal it totally. Another thing that I love about this product that it doesn't have shimmer in it like other illuminator/concealers.
