Bourjois foundations, 123 perfect VS healthy mix




I feel like I'm late to the party with this one (again), Bourjois already has a new star foundation, Air Mat. To be honest I don't feel like trying it yet, only because I'm more into dewy, not so matte face at the moment. I'm not even sure why would Bourjois launch the matte foundation in the middle of the strobing/dewy face craze. Anyways, if you were wondering which one of these two to get keep reading.

First of all I have to say Bourjois has the best makeup ever, when you compare the price and quality. That's why I love them and I'm always sure a Bourjois product won't disappoint me. So lets go back a couple of years when I was deciding on which one of their foundations to try next. I was googling for a couple of days to find out whether I should get 123 perfect or Healthy mix. Almost all of the reviews I read said that if you have oily skin you should get 123 perfect. So I did. Now I know that this isn't really the case.

Sure, 123 perfect does mattifies amazingly. It does make your skin look like a flawless canvas of pimple less perfection. But, this is a heavy foundation. If you use too much it will look unnatural and, occasionally, cakey. You will definitely feel like you are wearing a foundation. Still, this is a good liquid foundation for oily skin, you can't deny that. You won't look oily the whole day and the foundation never broke me out.

Now onto the Healthy mix. Like I mentioned, I was avoiding it for a while, because in the back of my mind words ''not for oily skin'' pooped out every time when I thought about buying it. Until my fiend started using it frequently and convincing me I should try it. She even bought me the foundation. The one I tried is Healthy mix serum. You can also get a normal Healthy mix version (same bottle like 123 perfect, but with a pink pump). And let me say, this foundation is pure perfection. It glides on the skin in one sweep, blends into the skin perfectly, makes your face look dewy and fresh. The best part is, it didn't make me look oily! Although it is creamy and creates a dewy complexion, it still keeps oil at bay and makes your skin look flawless. It also stays put until you take your makeup of. Works like magic!

What do you think? Have you tried one of these foundations?



Imam osećaj da sam malo zakasnila sa ovim postom (po običaju), Bourjois već ima novu zvezdu među tečnim puderima, Air Mat. Da budem iskrena, Air Mat mi se još ne isprobava, trenutno sam u fazi dewy kože koja nije ni malo mat. Nisam ni sigurna zašto je Bourjois izbacio mat puder u sred pomame za strobingom i dewy kožom. Da ne dužim o tome, ako vas zanima koji od ova dva pudera da probate, nastavite da čitate.

Prvo, moram da kažem da Bourjois ima najbolju šminku ikada, kad se gleda odnos cene i kvaliteta. Zato ih volim i uvek mogu da budem sigurna da me Bourjois proizvod neće razočarati. Hajde da se vratimo unazad nekoliko godina u vreme kada sam odlučivala koji njihov tečni puder je sledeći za isprobavanje. Guglovala sam u nekoliko navrata da bih saznala da li treba da kupim 123 perfect ili Healthy mix. Skoro sve recenzije koje sam pročitala su tvrdile da ako imate masnu kožu treba da koristite 123 perfect. Tako sam i uradila. Sada znam da ovo nije potpuna istina.

Naravno, 123 perfect neverovatno matira. Pretvori vam lice u savršeno platno bez bubuljica na vidiku. Ali, ovo je ''teži'' puder. Ako nanesete previše pudera izgledaće čudno i neprirodno, ponekad i cakey. Definitivno ćete u određenoj meri osećati da imate puder na licu. Ipak, on jeste odličan za masnu kožu, to ne može da se porekne. Ceo dan se nećete prosijati, i što je najbitnije, ovaj puder meni nikada nije izazvao bubljice.

Da pređemo na Healthy mix. Kao što sam spomenula, izbegavala sam ga neko vreme, jer su mi uvek reči ''nije za masnu kožu'' bile asocijacija za ovaj puder. Sve dok moja drugarica nije počela da ga koristi i ubedila i mene da treba da ga probam  Čak mi je i kupila puder. Ja sam probala Healthy mix serum verziju. Možete da ga kupite i u varijanti koja nije serum (u istom pakovanju kao 123 perfect samo sa roze pumpicom). I moram da kažem, ovaj puder je čisto savršenstvo. Razmazuje se u jednom potezu, savršeno stapa sa kožom, i lice izgleda dewy i sveže. Najbolji deo je to što se sa njim koža ne prosija! Iako jeste kremast i stvara dewy ten, i dalje drži sebum pod kontrolom i koža ostaje savršena. Takođe se ne mrda dok ne skinete šminku. Prava magija!

Šta vi mislite? Da li ste probali neki od ovih pudera?

  1. I've tried both the Healthy Mix and the 123 Perfect and although I absolutely adore the Healthy Mix formula, it breaks my skin out really badly so I can't use it any more! I have quite dry skin and haven't really had an issue with the 123 Perfect so I find it interesting that it was recommended as a good foundation for oily skin!

    1. So sorry to hear it broke you out! I know, a lot of people with dry or normal skin use it with no issues whatsoever. :)

  2. Regularan Health mix puder mi je jedan od omiljenih. 123 Perfect je blizu, mada nisam nesto odusevljena pokrivnom moci s obzirom da je namenjen da pokriva nesavrsenosti, Healthy mix mi je cak i u ovoj kategoriji bolji a i najsvetlija nijansa mi malo vuce na narandzasto. Ostalo mi je jos da probam Healthy mix serum mada s obzirom na iskustvo sa puderom, mislim da se necu razocarati. Kako serum pokriva?

    1. Meni i 123 Perfect malo povuče na narandžasto kad oksidiše, koristim nijansu 52. Na pakovanju Healthy mix-a piše da je pokrivna moć mala, mada može da se dobije i srednja kada se nanese u dva tanka sloja. :)

  3. Trenutno isprobavam 123 Perfect i prezadovoljna sam, jako lepo odradi posao u jednom tanjem sloju. Ne znam zašto, bejah ubeđena kako ću s njim prosijati za čas. Inače, uopšte me ne privlači Air Mat, videla sam ga na koži i uopšte mi se ne dopada... preočit je.

    1. Stvarno jeste dobar i trajan puder, savršen za one koji vole mat finiš. Niko do sada nije baš ishvalio Air Mat, ali merkala sam ga i danas u parfimeriji, radoznalost mi ne da mira. :D

    1. I meni se prosija nekad, kad se to desi samo je matiram i ten ponovo bude savršen. :)
