Stick foundations have never been my thing as the ones I’ve tried are thick, unnatural looking and heavy, however I like the concept as foundations like this can be applied easily and quickly. They are very convenient for quick makeup. I used to have this Bourjois foundation as part of a PR pack, like most of the time its shade is too dark for me, but I liked its formula and format, so I ordered the lightest shade in existence online. The only other foundation I own is from Revolution, which is a heavy-looking foundation, although it is so different, it’s more like you’re putting liquid foundation in this format. I’ve been wearing it for a few months now and love it – it’s especially handy when I’m in a hurry.

texture: This is much less than a typical stick foundation. It glides easily on the skin and the swiped foundation doesn’t look like heavy makeup, which is nice to see, but it’s also the least pigmented formula of its kind I’ve tried, it takes a few swipes to get enough on the face Product. Compared to the revolutionary formula, however, I find that I don’t use as much product at once, depending on what I see when I roll it back into the tube. It blends easily as it is not a quick drying formula and does not stick where it has been brushed. I prefer to blend it with my fingers as it is easiest to keep most of the product on the skin. Can be done with a sponge (a sponge from a cushion foundation, I don’t use a damp makeup sponge), but do it gently as brushes and sponges can remove the product from the skin. There is a sponge on the other end of the package, but I haven’t used it.

Coverage and Completion: It has light to medium/medium coverage depending on how much you apply or how focused you are when brushing foundation on your skin. It’s easy to build because it can be layered. You get a great level of coverage without feeling like you have a lot of product on your face, so this is more of a liquid formula than a classic stick foundation. The finish is dewy and glowy, so it is more suitable for dry skin and most people may want to powder it. Like Bourjois’ Healthy Blend formula, this is a very natural skin foundation that doesn’t accentuate pores, texture or lines.

Staying Power: This lasts on average on the skin, similar to a healthy blend. Not a full day, but enough to get through most of the day. It fades evenly.

shadow:100 Rose Ivory is similar in shade to Bourjois Healthy Mix 50 Rose Ivory, but slightly cooler. This is not the lightest shade but it is enough for me. From the swatches and stores I’ve seen, it comes in 10 shades, which is more inclusive than Bourjois’ usual limited range, but it’s still a poor choice compared to many of the products that have come out recently.

Package: Twisted plastic tube with plastic rose gold cap. So far, the product hasn’t gotten off the ground, which is often the case with such products. There is a mini sponge on the back.

Price and Availability: I ordered online from Notino for 8,16 euros. I don’t remember if we had this shade in Müller, it’s possible we did, but it’s more expensive there.

This is a stick foundation or “foundcealar” that doesn’t feel like one. It just glides on the skin, blends seamlessly, doesn’t look heavy, and has the overall look of Bourjois Healthy Blend Liquid formula. It’s convenient to apply quickly, however, it takes more time to reach the level that you can achieve with liquid foundation, which may make it less appealing to some people, and you can’t mix it with anything. By the way, I have tried the liquid formula from Always Fabulous and they are totally different. The liquid version is an unnatural looking foundation that is too matte for me. I am very disappointed with this as I am a long time Healthy Mix fan.

Have a good day!
