I purchased the Bourjois Healthy Mix concealer when Priceline had the 50% off Bourjois products and because I had started to hit pan on my beloved Benefit Boi-ing concealer. I decided I wanted to get a cheap concealer that I can use everyday for work etc., and save the Boi-ing for going out when I want extra coverage.
Another reason I decided to try the Healthy Mix concealer (if the 50% off wasn’t already enough!) was that Lilit from Makeup and Macaroons used this concealer and she was really happy with it.
I purchased it in the colour #52 medium radiance. It looked MUCH lighter than my skintone, but it was the only one left on the shelf. Lilit had said that it’s okay for it to be lighter than your skintone, as it is supposed to give a radiant effect. And besides, I could always powder over the top.
Bourjouis Healthy Mix Correcting Concealer awakens the complexion and conceals imperfections, with a raspberry, apricot and melon enriched formula that work to brighten, regulate and stimulate micro-circulation. Texture works to blend into the skin and erase signs of fatigue, product also leaves behind a subtle fruity scent.
It looks quite yellow when it is first applied, but then when it dries, it turns a little more pink. This concealer dries to a powder matte finish, and because of this, it settles into fine lines a bit. I do powder over the top of this and I think that helps to smooth the finish out and set it in place.
Apologies for the next photo, I took the ‘before’ photo on my camera and the ‘after’ on my iPhone as my camera decided to chuck a spack attack on me before I could finish taking photos.
I’ve left a little bit unblended underneath the eye so you can see the colour of it on my skin. I apply this just with my fingers as the heat from my skin helps the product blend well. As you can see, the concealer does a great job of covering up pigmentation and dark areas under the eye. It also helps to illuminate the eye area. A little bit goes a looonnggg way so you don’t need to squeeze out much at all. This little tube will last me a very long time.
My only gripe with the healthy mix concealer is that is settles into the fine lines because of its powder finish, but for the $10 I spent, it’s not that noticeable of a problem (I’ve seen worse) and I am happy to keep using this everyday. I just make sure to keep up the eye cream.
