Do you get irritated when you go asking for a decent loose powder and the SA’s shove some mineral powder foundations in your face? Well after this happened to me for like 20 times, i did get super irritated.
Anyway I had told you girls some time ago that I had been looking for a new foundation for oily skin. I even needed a loose powder. I had finally made up my mind to by Revlon’s colourstay foundation in combination to oily skin and had almost bought it, when I noticed that the foundation looked separated. It looked like two different colours were inside the bottle. When I inquired about it, the SA persisted that the foundation is in good condition and showed me the rest of the bottles which also looked like this. hhmmmm… but I knew that if I bought it, I wouldn’t be completely satisfied. So I went towards other counters when the Bourjois counter caught my eye. Now I have heard a lot about this healthy mix range and how natural it is and all that, but had never considered to buy it. The first question I asked the SA was if this had SPF, she told me it has SPF15. I also inquired if bourjois had loose powder which is used to set foundation . I didn’t want to rattle my brains out on this topic again so I just told her to pack bourjois healthy glow foundation and its loose powder.
Now when I was paying for this, the SA informed me that I had got a free Bourjois kohl and contour pencil. They had an offer on the purchase of products above INR 1500. Of course I got super happy. You know how we girls are.
At home when I was checking out these goodies I noticed that there was no SPF in these products. GASP. The SA had misinformed me. Urrghhh. But when I checked out the reviews online I relaxed a little cuz this healthy mix foundation has got majorly good reviews.
In fact this has also been voted as the product of the year for 2011!!
I was pretty sure that the powder I had bought was loose powder as I had even checked it out on other blogs before.. Turns out I was wrong!!
So when I was puffing up with this powder(which I have to do a lot cuz of the oiliness), after a while I noticed that things started to get a little caked up. After some hard-core research I found out that it indeed in powder foundation. Uuuurrrgggghhh again! I am not saying that it is bad, its just that you cannot puff up with powder foundation. It would definitely cake up.
So instead of a foundation and a loose powder, I ended up buying two foundations.
I’ll write the reviews about these products after using them for at least a week or two. Overall I am happy, I think I have made good purchases even if by mistake.
So, have you tried this healthy foundation range yet?
Presently, what foundation are you using ?
