What I Have To Say:

After I ran out of my Luscious HD Mineral liquid Foundation, I knew it was time to change my foundation. Then I came across the Bourjois Counter in my local drugstore and found exactly what I was looking for, the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation. I have been using this product for over a month now so I think its about time I reviewed it. The foundation is in a 30ml bottle which comes with a sturdy pump. The shade I am using is No.53. At first I thought that the color might not suit me but I was wrong, Its a perfect match for my NC30 skin-tone. The foundation comes in 8 different shades.
The consistency of this foundation is slightly runny. The formula is perfect and blends flawlessly into the skin. Its not a matte finish foundation. It gives your skin a natural looking glow. It is a medium coverage foundation so you might have to use a concealer. This foundation looks very natural on the skin. On hot days I would recommend setting it with a compact/loose powder.
This foundation has a fruity smell. Nothing overwhelming but if you are the kind of person who likes odor free cosmetics this might not be for you.
I have a combination skin type which means I have dry patches on my skin and my t-zone seems to get oily. This foundation does enhance the dryness a little so I have to make sure to use a good moisturiser.
Overall I think its a pretty good foundation. It lasts for about 7-8 hours on my skin which I think is pretty good. So far it hasn't caused any breakouts. This foundation doesn't oxidize either.

This foundation cost me Rs:1790. You can purchase it from

I would rate this foundation 4/5.

I would not recommend this foundation for oily skin or a humid enviorment.
Best foundation for oily skin is Artdeco oil free foundation. I will be reviewing it soon.
