Bourjois Flower Perfection Foundation Review.

There has been a lot of chatter on Australian beauty forums about how great Bourjois Foundations are. Now, naturally I wanted part of this action. Most people got Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation but some said that Bourjois Flower Perfection Foundation had a little more coverage - just what I like.
I did some investigation at my local Target and matched myself to the shade "Vanilla (number 52)" - for reference I wear MAC NW20.
I then went online and got the foundation as it was cheaper (there were no sales for Bourjois at Target or Priceline at the time).

Bourjois Flower Perfection Foundation claims "smooth and beautified complexion for 16 hours". It states it is an "SPF 15 formula with wild azalea, a flower resistant to extreme climate conditions, protects skin cells for a long-lasting youth extension effect on the complexion."

The first thing I noticed about the foundation is this weird sponge that is held in the lid - it is attached to the plastic lid and has little airholes. I did try it but honestly it soaks up a lot of foundation (such a waste) and I prefer my brush or fingers.

I love that it is a pump foundation, so much more hygienic then jars you have to dip into. YAY!

The scent: Hmm there is a light scent but I actually like it, once the foundation in on, you can't smell it though.

The foundation applies like a dream and I would say it is medium coverage and has a semi-matte finish. Now, I didn't wear it for 16 hours, however for the 10 or so hours I did wear it I didn't need to touch up or blot at all. I did use a little powder to set the foundation once I applied it.

OMG - No eyebrows!! - This is with foundation and I added  my eyebrows, eyeliner and mascara. Click the picture to expand view.

Now to add some colour to my skin - a little bronzer and blush!

This foundation retails for about $32 in Australia…however, Priceline and Target often have sales. I got mine from (free shipping) for $18.63

ps - Sorry that the text is highlighted. I have no idea how to get rid of it...


  1. I have tried the healthy mix and that is definitely a medium coverage :) this looks like it covers better but maybe a little matter also?

  2. Sound like a good Product ,your Skin looks great!
