Bourjois 123 Perfect foundation review

I'm not one of the girls who are very fond of foundation. As you may all know by now, I'm more of a spontaneous grab and go kind of girl. However, we do not choose to have perfect skin. We all have our flaws and imperfections, hence creating the need of a coverage, whether high or low. Hence, foundations.

Due to day to day stress and life loads, sleepless nights dark circles and to top it off, yellow, lifeless and dull complexion..I have it all! I need to wear foundations for special occasions to cover my imperfections as well as a base for my makeup. I have tried several , not to many (yes, I am guilty!) but enough to judge what is good for me. from the drugstore ones, Bourjois is amongst my few favs.

This foundation has 3 correcting pigments:
*Yellow: Conceals dark circles
*Mauve: Corrects dullness
*Green: neutralizes redness

Since I have a normal-combined skin, I chose the 123 Perfect foundation. It has a medium consistency in a liqiud form, easily blended into my skin that it almost looked like a second skin, or let's say, my own skin! At first, the consistency seemed thick a bit, but once you blend it into your skin, you won't feel you are wearing anything at all. All you need is half a pump to apply all over your face. It dries off as power, and has a matte finish, which is perfect for my oily T-zone! Didn't cake, didn't dry off my skin and has a medium to heavy coverage. I used my Real Techniques Expert face brush to blend it in, but it would also be better do use a beauty blender sponge.

It is worth noting that I do have severe dark circles issue, so with even this on, I had to apply minimal concealer to cancel out the darkness and bright my under eye area. The shade I picked in 53, light beige. I am an NC20-25 with yellow undertones, so I believe this one is a perfect match to my skin.

If I needed to put my Chanel perfection Lumiere foundation on hold to save, I would use this Bourjois 123 perfect as a Dupe.
