Bourjois Mineral Matte Mousse Foundation Review + Face Swatch


Love it!!! It blends like a dream and lasts all day without caking and my face didn't get oily even after hours and hours. It is a matte finish but my skin doesn't feel dry at all.
It has medium coverage. It covers blemishes but not completely, it just blurs them in a way. The mousse texture feels so fluffy that even if you pile this on it won't look like you did, because it's so light and easy to blend. Amazing!

I think this will suit dry skin as well, because as I said before, it's not drying. My skin type is Combination/Dry (according to Clinique) and I do tend to get dry patches here and there, so I would recommend it to dry-skinned people.

I like it much much better than my MUFE HD Foundation



This baby is so soft and velvety. It's one of the best brushes I've ever used. I bought another one =)



Shade 85 is about 2 shades darker than my skin tone, so I apply Mac MSF Natural in Light/Medium. Perfect match! Makes me look a little tanned, I'd say, which is what I want for summer.

Below I'm wearing both together.


Outdoor


Indoor

Price ~ Rs.750 (Foundation), Rs.350 (Brush)

Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥♥ + .8  for the foundation, ♥♥♥♥♥ for the brush

Repurchase? Yes, I will buy my right shade. I found out that Westside just kept 1 shade, but in Kunchal's there are 4 shades! :O . That's why I don't like to shop make-up at these department stores much, they choose what and what not to keep.

♥ Happy Weekend Everybody! ♥

  22. If you suffer from acne and still love to apply makeup, then this revolutionary product is your best solution. It is a mineral based powder that has been clinically proven to effectively heal your acne and other blemishes. It’s an acne treatment in powder form and applied just like any mineral makeup. It has a translucent tint which diffuses the look of blemishes so it acts like makeup and at the same time heals the skin from breakouts. The product is called RareMinerals Blemish Therapy by Bare Escentuals.It contains natural ingredients from the healing properties of zinc, sulphur (kills bacteria on the skin) and exfoliating and renewing properties of RareMinerals (TM) concentrate. It penetrates to your skin and stop new pimples from forming and helps clear blackheads. This therapeutic powder can be used on its own or under your mineral makeup or moisturizer during the day. It is also best applied at night so you can continually heal your skin while sleeping.With mineral based products, it challenges these old practices of having a clean, makeup free face before you sleep; and not applying too much makeup on your blemishes so your skin can breathe. You can suitably apply this mineral powder all day and night! This is unlike the popular acne treatments that comes in ointment or cream which can leave your face looking shiny and greasy. This is a natural makeup and acne treatment treatment in one.

  26. Hello.. im using NC35 MAC as well, as you have mentioned that the shade was a bit darker for you.. can u tell me which on the match your NC35? is it shade 83 or 84?

    thanks

    ReplyDelete
  27. Anon- My Healthy Mix foundation is #53. I'm actually lighter than NC35, maybe NC25, but I buy darker concealers sometimes. So I guess 83.

    I have oily skin which refuses any foundation.How would you compare this to Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse?I am a Bourjois newbee and loving their products so far :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Sayani- I didn't like Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse at all..it clumped up on my face really badly. So this is way better :)

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
