Bourjois Happy Light Foundation

Have you ever had that situation when your favourite foundations runs out, closely followed by your back up, and then your back ups back up? Well that happened to me a few weeks ago, so I thought what a great time to try something new! After reading rave reviews on hundreds of blogs, I thought that I would make a beeline for Bourjois' newest offering of the Happy Light Foundation and I was not disappointed!

First of all, can we just talk about how this looks more expensive than it's drugstore price tag of £11.99. It's housed in a sleek glass bottle, that despite being quite heavy and a bit of a pain to travel with, it looks so pretty on a dressing table. I also love the fact that it's a pump dispenser, because it means less wastage and easy application. I know that a lot of drugstore foundations have a pump dispenser, but I have noticed that more and more drugstore foundations are without pumps. L'Oreal and Max Factor, I'm looking at you. 

The formula is pretty wonderful too. For the past year or so, I've been more than loyal to good old Healthy Mix from Bourjois, but this one definitely comes out on top. It has the same sort of consistency to a typical tinted moisturiser, but all of the elements of a liquid foundation. It doesn't feel heavy on the ski, nor does it cake up when layered or set with a powder. The overall finish is stunning, and is one that I much prefer to other foundations that I've tried. When applied, it evens skin tone and gives a bright, luminous finish to the skin. I wouldn't call it dewy, nor shiny, but more natural. 

I would definitely recommend this to all, as I think it will be perfect on all types of skin, be it dry, oil or combo. On my wishlist now is the new Happy Light Concealer and Primers as this has blown me away so much. Once again Bourjois have wowed me with their base products, and this is definitely a repurchase for me! Have you tried this foundation?


  1. Just before this was launched I repurchased Healthy Mix and I'm waiting to run out (or at least for it to run down)! I've read some other positive reviews of this so I'm looking forward to trying it at some point.
