Review: Bourjois 123 Perfect


Hello everyone! Todays post will be a quick review on the Bourjois 123 Perfect foundation.  First I want to talk about the packaging. I love this type of packaging with a pump. It is so practical and hygenic and you can control how much product comes out. The bottle is glass and there is 30 ml of product. For myself I got the shade 51 light vanilla and my favorite way to apply it is with a real techniques expert face brush.

This foundation doesn´t have a nice yummy scent like the other Bourjois foundations but its not a bad smell and it doesn´t bother me. It claims to have three pigments that help the imperfections on the face: yellow pigments for anti-dark circles, mauve pigments for an anti-dull complexion and green pigments that are for anti redness. It also claims to have 24 hr hydration and to keep your complexion flawless up to 16 hours. 

To me this foundation is just OK and I don´t know if I would purchase it again. It is very light and comfortable to wear but it does not cancel out my redness or cover up my imperfections. In the right picture above I have one layer of foundation on without any concelear or primer. I would say that the coverage is medium and it is a good foundation for every day especially for girls with oily or combination skin. If you tend to get dry patches like me I wouldn´t suggest this product because it does stick to them and it just doesn´t look nice. The price of it is ok but I think you can find better drugstore foundations for the same or less money. 

positive things: -packaging with a pump
     -light weight
                        -easy to apply and blend

negative things: -not enough coverage
                       -sticks to dry patches

That is all I have to say about this product. Keep in mind that this is just my opinion and how the foundation works for me. Some of you might like it others might not. Thank you for reading and check back again for more posts! xo

    1. yea everyone raves about the bourjois healthy mix but im not sure if that would give me enough coverage either...

  3. I haven't heard of this Bourjois foundation, but I do have dry skin, so I probably should stay away from it. Great review though :) You have such a cute blog!


    1. i had such high expectations from it because of the different colored pigments in it but it just didnt work out...and you should definitely stay away if u have dry skin. thank you for stopping by!! :))
