Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation

Hi there! It’s February! ❤ Valentine’s Day is near. So I guess a lot of you will be having dates? *wink wink* lol

Today will be about this most raved product from Bourjois (is it still?). This one was hard to find here because it’s the Philippines and most of the time people only want Philippine weather proof makeup. Since this one had great reviews, people started selling it here and I manage to get one (years later lol). And since people say that this has a yellow undertone I really needed to get one. It’s so hard for me to find a good yellow toned foundation.

Comparison Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum vs. A'pieu Triple Wear Foundation Sand
Comparison between Bourjois HM Dark Beige and A’pieu Triple Wear Sand. Taken with natural light.

Ultimately, even though it’s a little more bronzed compared to my skin, it looks more natural on me compared with A’pieu Triple Wear in Sand. I’m not sure if the lighter color of Bourjois HM Serum Gel would perfectly fit me, that I have to find out. You can read about my info on A’pieu Triple Wear Foundation in the shade Sand here.

For reference:

My skin is combination type, sensitive, oily T-zone and the sides of the nose and eyelids, enlarged pores, acne-prone, cystic and cluster acne problems, acne scars, uneven skin tone, redness, dehydrated skin.
