I have to admit to laughing at myself because I made an audible 'Oooh' when I spotted this bottle of foundation on the Bourjois stand! I generally like to think of myself as someone who doesn't fall for a marketing 'line' especially when it comes to makeup. But the '10 hour sleep effect' got me. Hook, line and sinker. Seeing as I haven't had anything close to ten hours of sleep in two and a half years and after December I will get decidedly less as I'll up for night feeds again, I though I'd give this little peach bottle a whirl...
I am a genuine fan of Bourjois. I think their products are real performers in the budget beauty category so I had a certain amount of confidence in this before I started with it. But I do know that my skin provides quite the challenge due to the tiredness of pregnancy mixed with running after a toddler as well as working. To say I'm a Mum on the run is an understatement! What I mean by that is that I was quite willing to let it off the hook if it didn't perk my skin up...I would test it on others as well, before I judged it completely.
No need!! It's absolutely great! I am honestly so impressed with it and I really think my skin looks better. I dare say it looks even better than it does in my usual MAC Face & Body (which I will never talk down as it is wonderful) but this is so good for such a good price (€13.99)
I find the coverage to be light to medium - don't expect heavy coverage. You can layer within reason without it caking and although it doesn't seem to contain pearly bits - it seriously brightens my skin. They say this is down to it's content of vitamins E, F and B5. It's oil free too which is great for combination skins. I bought shade 71 which is the palest and it is good for me. Being a budget brand, they don't have a huge shade extension but if you slot into one of their shades, you should be happy with this product. Best applied with fingers for perfect blending, this is one product I will continue to use both for myself and on my clients and makeup courses.
So long Tired Face (for now!)
