I have a bit of a foundation addiction... I am of the opinion that a good foundation is essential to a perfect makeup look. And by good, I mean a foundation that is pretty much traceless and invisible on the skin, one that enhances the complexion without covering up absolutely everything (that is what concealers are for!). I have tried a ton of foundations in the recent months and the Bourjois Happy Light has shot up to the top of my favourite summer foundations EVER!
I know I always say this, but in my opinion Bourjois make the best highstreet foundations and are up there, if not better, than many of my high end ones! The Happy Light Foundation is a very lightweight and luminous base that melts into the skin seamlessly! I have inspected it it in a magnifying mirror and it is completely invisible on the skin. It provides a light to medium coverage and a beautiful, luminous finish. I have received a lot of compliments on my skin while wearing this foundation (including a day when I was suffering from a little bit of a hangover...). It has this magical ability of brightening your face without the dreaded disco ball effect.
I myself have combination to oily skin and find that this foundation stays on reasonably well but you need to set it with powder, it is quite glowy. I tend to only use a light dusting of powder through the centre of my face as I love a bit of luminosity on my cheeks. I need to reapply a bit of powder later in the day as I do get a small bit of shine, but in all honesty, that happens with all foundations so I don't mind.
The one thing to look out for with this product though is that the shades run quite dark, so if you are using a different Bourjois foundation, don't assume you will be the same shade in the Happy Light.
I am very impressed with this foundation and will be picking up the concealer from this range also! It is not the cheapest highstreet foundation but an amazing quality one! I highly recommend it if you are a fan of natural bases.
Bourjois Happy Light is €16.99 and available in Boots.
