WELL........... i have got so much to say about this foundation so i apologise in advance if i ramble!
first all its a glass bottle with the normal plastic pump action top and lid.
nice simple classic design which i like, pretty much like the other bourjois foundation packaging.
this is called 123 perfect and the reason being it has 3 correcting pigments meaning 0 imperfection! (so the bottle advises). when i first tried this the consistency was alot more watery then the other bourjois foundation and i thought maybe it was because it was the start of the bottle. but i think its the actual normal consistency which is ok im not to fussed about that quality.
the 123 pigmentation steps are as follows -
1- yellow pigments for anti dark circles.
2- mauve pigments for anti dull complexion
3-green pigments for anti redness.
now i was like ummmmmm is this all a gimmick or will this actually help reduce these problems so many people suffer from????
i really wanted to try this and as it was on offer in boots for £6.99 (normal price £10.99) i had to grab a bottle to find out. it took me a while to actually see what shade suited me best but im glad i spent a little time testing as i ended up with shade 53 which was light beige. im so pleased with this shade as its a brilliant match for my skin tone. and i would say pretty much a perfect match. i dont find many foundation that are like this and the only other one i have which is pretty much perfect is my maxfactor perfection compact.
it says once applied it gives a flawless complexion even to perfection, well i actually have to agree with this statement. i applied this morning in great natural daylight and it was so easy to apply, i did apply with a foundation brush as i feel this gives a more even look and it went on brilliantly, as i was saying with the watery consistency this allows you to move and really work the foundation in without it drying to quick on your skin, i like this and i can buff away until i feel it looks even and then set with a powder after concealer.
im very happy with this foundation and so glad i purchased it. i also like that you can build this foundation in stages creating a more heavy look for a night out of occasion, whilst applying lightly still gives you this lovely even natural look for the daytime. one more thing i have to say about this is that i actually found that after applying i had to use LESS concealer under my eyes to cover the shadows thats i suffer from! WOW NOT MANY FOUNDATION ALLOW YOU TO DO THIS!
so overall im very pleased with this product and i give it a thumbs up, i havent had any redness or dull complexion issues with my skin recently but when i do i will update my blog about it.
but for the yellow pigments to hide dark circles it really helped and if thats the only thing it does i would still repurchase. please let me know if any of you have used this i would love to know how you got on and if you love it as much as me.
bubbye ladies see you soon. x
