Brand: Bourjois Paris
Shade: No. 51
1. Fair skin tones
2. Oily skin types
3. Problematic skin
4.8 /5 – Hygienic pump packaging that controls the amount of fluid coming out. Also the bottle looks pretty and sturdy. Doesn’t look cheap considering the price.
4.8/5 – Runny water based formula but dries to a very matte – powdery finish with full but buildable coverage. Awesome for oily skin types but not all that pleasant for people with dry skin.
3. Lasting Power:
5/5 – Because it lasts forever. I apply it in the morning at 9 am and get near the washing counter around 10 to 11 pm and still look beautiful 😀 why? Because I still have this thing on.
4. Shade Color:
4.5/5 – Shades selection may not be as wide as MAC or other high end brands therefore not confusing at all. Some of you especially with blue undertones might have trouble finding the right shade. This shade 51 is ideal for fair ladies with yellow undertones.
5. Overall Rating:
4.8/5 – Overall a great foundation for oily and problematic skin types.
Do I recommend it?
Yes, but strictly not to ladies with dry and even dry-combination skin.
Why do I commend it?
I recommend it to girls with super oily and oil – combination skin types only because it dries to a matte and powdery finish. It offers great buildable coverage and covers blemishes instantly. It is also great for covering any redness on your face or even dark circles because it has 3 colored pigments namely yellow, mauve and greenthat is usually found in concealers individually. Overall a perfect foundation with amazing coverage and great lasting power! For those with no prominent dark circles this foundation alone is more than enough to brighten the under eye area and hide any blemishes without adding heaps of concealer on top.
Why is it a hit?
- Great for daily wear
- Lasts almost whole day
- Covers imperfections instantly
- Full but buildable coverage
- Does not cause skin allergies or breakouts even on super sensitive skin
- Conceals and brightens the under eyes as well
- Neutralizes redness
- Corrects dullness
- Provides radiance and brightness
Why is it a miss?
- Shade range might be not for everyone especially those with blue undertones
- Can be drying for some
- If you have super dry skin
- If you have the tendency to go dry with products that are for oily skin types
- If you are blue undertoned
Brace it with:
- Any makeup look you want
