Bourjois Healthy Mix Radiance Reveal FoundationBourjois Healthy Mix Radiance Reveal Foundation

So while in Boots the other week I couldn't resist a 3 for 2 offer and decided to give the Bourjois Healthy Mix Radiance Reveal foundation a whirl. If you read my blog on a regular basis you would know I love the serum version of this foundation and so wanted to see what the difference was between the two. As far as I'm aware the main difference is the Radiance Reveal is aimed for people with oilier skin and the serum is more for people with drier skin. 

While I do love the Serum version, I find it breaks down on my skin very easily. Its almost too dewy for my skin type, however I do love the finish and I continue to wear it. I have been on a quest to clear up my skin and I got to say it is 70% better than what it was a few months ago, but I will do a whole post on that soon. Anyways onto the foundation. 

I wear the shade 51 in all Bourjois foundation, this one is a little darker than the serum version, a little more on the orange side, nothing to orange, but its less yellow based unlike the serum version. I blend it right down my neck to avoid any evil foundation lines. The finish of this foundation is a semi matte with a radiant look. It is defiantly a lot less dewy than the serum version, I don't mind that though as my skin is oily so anything that doesn't look to oily is good for me. 

In terms of wear time, it does last a little bit longer than the serum version, which is good and it does give a tiny bit more coverage, yet this foundation is a medium coverage foundation and I mean medium where you will need concealer. I will say this though, if I apply powder over this it starts to look cakey, so I avoid any powder with this as its not pretty. 

Overall a good foundation, while the serum one is very natural looking the radiance reveal is a tad more obvious. Yes people will know you will have foundation on, but it still looks pretty natural, if you skip on powder. I hope I can repurchase this in the winter months when my tan has disappeared, however I feel it may look a little too dark.

Have you tried this foundation? Do you prefer it over the serum?
