I think that Bourjois foundations are the best drug store foundations out there. Until I tried the Bourjois foundation I was a big high end girl. I never go out without a foundation because I blush easily and I am not confident without it. I still think that a good foundation is worth every penny but if you can`t afford a high end one Bourjois will be good as well.
I had Bourjois 1,2,3 perfection and Flower perfection foundation but I love Bourjois Healthy mix serum the most. I apply this foundation with my fingers or with a foundation brush and it glides on wonderfully. It gives me light to medium coverage but it is buildable (I always build it up on my red cheeks). The result is a natural and dewy finish, it feels great too. Staying power of this foundation depends on your skin type. My skin is a bit dry, so I don`t have problems with it`s staying power but I think that people with oily skin might have it. The shade range is rather good, I think that 51 Vanilla is perfect for me, it is light and has a yellow undertone. For those with pink undertone I suggest Max Factor foundations.

It comes in a plastic bottle with a pump and it works great. It smells fruity and I like the smell, but it would be better if it would be smell less. Ingredients are OK, the base are silicones and because of them foundations glides so easily. Somewhere in between there is Alcohol Denat, but at least it is not on the first five places. It doesn`t contain spf, which can be good or bad. It is good for taking photography, but bad for an everyday foundation.
