REVIEW OF BOURJOIS 123 PERFECT FOUNDATION

123 perfect

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).

  1. Trenutno koristim Lorealov puder i jedva čekam da ga potrošim jer mi nikako više ne odgovara. A dvoumim se između tog Bourjois 123 i Revlonovog colorstaya. Odlično ti prekriva napravilnosti, i isam znala da ima 3 različita pigmenta jer se stvarno nisam susretala s tim puderom ali mi je već odavno upao u oko.
    Također nemam neke velike nepravilnosti ali tražim puder sa dobrim prekrivanjam jer kad već koristim puder neka maximalno ostvari svoju ulogu. Možda sam više za, za taj Bourjois, pa mi je ova recenzija od velike koristi,  no uvijek me muči odabri nijanse, jer nije isto isprobavati pri umjetnom svjetlu i prirodnom :/
    I žao mi je zbog majke, nadam se da će se oporaviti.

    •  A znam, ista stvar je i kod mene s tim nijansama i kupovinom, ali uvijek nekako radije uzmem svijetliju nijansu ako se dvoumim jer mi je lakse poigrati se s bronzerom, nego da mi lice bude tamnije od vrata. A i nije mi strano namazati cijelu ruku pa se vratiti sutradan po puder ;)
      Što se tiče Revlonovog Colorstay-a, nije mi legao jer je pregust i prekremast iako ga stvarno mnogi oduševljeno hvale, puno bolji mi je bio Photoready od Revlona. Ali to sve zavisi o tipu kože. Hvala za dobre želje.
