Bourjois City Radiance Medium Coverage Foundation 2 Vanilla, 3ml
About this deal
One thing that I really love about this is that it smells super nice, not at all like a normal foundation. Bourjois City Radiance Skin Protecting Foundation is an anti-pollution screen formula that prevents the adherence of carbon particles and lets skin breathe. The foundation either highlighted my texture or caused texture that I didn’t have before, made pores visible and created lines that I did not have before makeup.
This Bourjois foundation has a formula that boasts of a smoothing as well as evening out effect, that is also smudge proof for all day wear.
I do find that it dries down to a slightly velvety finish, and while I don’t find it drying, I don’t use it as often as I like, because I fear that the velvety finish might dry my skin. I like them both, with Healthy Mix Serum being a more everyday type foundation for me, that actually feels nicer to use often; and City Radiance being a more heavy duty one, when I feel I need coverage or I want it to last longer through the day. Not sure if this is a yey or nay, because there’s contradicting results from various studies (also used in food, so some reports are food test based).
I can see that this one will be a popular one for those who travel a lot, because it’s the perfect travel companion, in terms of packaging and product performance. Unlike the Healthy Mix and Healthy Mix Serum foundations that come in slim glass bottles, the City Radiance foundation comes in a tube. However, I would recommend this to anyone, and it seems to be okay with my sensitive skin, so if you struggle with that then this would be a good choice.
