I can say that I never had a problematic skin, acne, oily skin problems, but the last two months, since my mother is seriously ill, the stress has made some differences. Often I wake up with big dark circles, my eyelids are in purple tones and my chin has become a problematic area.
Bourjois’s latest foundation, ‘123 Perfect’ claims to perfect your complexion with three different pigments:
1. Yellow for dark circles
2. Mauve for dull complexions
3. Green for redness.
Another claim Bourjois makes is that the foundation offers 24hr hydration. I’m hard to put a word on that because I always use my daily cream for hydration, but I can say that it did not dry my skin out, as some other foundations, long lasting, did.
Bourjois 123 Perfect Foundation claims to wear for 16 hours, I would say 8-9 hours is a more realistic statement if you’re not wearing any primer under the foundation.
This foundation comes in a glass bottle and it has a strong and high quality plastic pump. Standard packing of 30 ml and an SPF 10 will provide you a medium coverage that you can easily upgrade.
What I personally love about Bourjois powders is that Bourjois does not play too much with their shade numbers – and usually if you find a shade number in one line that fit you, you will probably find that same shade number in other lines and it will also fits you.
As far as the shades themselves, the shade that suits me is No.52 Vanilla, which is the second of the brightest, and if I am not mistaken, I think that you can choose between 5 different shades. If you can find your shade, and you have normal or oily skin I believe you will be satisfied with this powder.
Unlike some of Bourjois foundations this does not share the fruit scent, but has a more traditional foundation, make up scent. In Croatia, the price is 14 euros and it is best to use within 12 months from opening.
In two months, how long I have been using this foundation I’m satisfied because it provides everything I need. I need a dose and a half when I’m using my fingers or two doses of pump when applied with a sponge.
The image is not Photoshopped, on the face and I have only two products (moisturizer and foundation Bourjois 123 applied with make up sponge).
Did you already try this foundation?
