Bourjois Radiance Reveal Healthy Mix Foundation Swatches

Bourjois has just released a new version of their popular Healthy Mix Foundation (CHF25.90) over here in Switzerland. It is available here in six shades whereas there will be eight shades available in the UK where it is scheduled to launch in March and retail at £9.99.

The new formula helps to provides a luminous application that is 70% more radiant. It contains a greater mix of fruit extracts such as apricot for radiance, melon for hydration and apple for youth protection, plus anti-oxidising vitamin E derivative. Cystalline pigments help even out the complexion and let natural light through the skin. The foundation is also designed to have just the right balance of yellow and pink undertones to reveal the freshness of the complexion.

The Radiance Reveal Healthy Mix boasts a new glass pump bottle packaging, which gives it a more classy feel than the previous plastic bottle.

There is also a new peach-toned #41 Healthy Mix blush, Healthy Balance Matte Finish powder and Healthy Balance concealer.

The foundation's texture feels very similar to the original Healthy Mix and it still has that slightly sweet fruity scent. It evens out the skin surface nicely with a natural, lightweight finish that sets quite nicely without feeling oily or overly matte. I only swatched this on my hand so I can't say how well it performs. There does seem to be a good range of light to tanned shades for this, which is impressive for a drugstore brand. I am usually #51 or #52 for Bourjois foundations.

#56 looks great! I always wanted to try these - here's hoping our local bourjois will bring these shades in!

Bourjois should definitely offer more shades in Asian countries, instead of the usual three or four!
