I’m someone who never thought I’d need concealer, regardless of how many eye bags I had residing in my under-eyes.
It’s not that I thought it was a good look, just I didn’t understand the need of concealing nature’s indecency. If my eye-bags are chilling under my eye sockets, it’d be wrong of me to conceal them and pretend they don’t exist.
I’m the same with spots… To be honest, it’s just that I don’t want to give a false representation of myself. I am not airbrushed; I’m just me – eye-bags and spots included! Having said that, I did used to highlight my under-eye area as though to draw further attention to them (unintentionally).
Do you know that triangle method bloggers use to make-up artist-fy their face? Yeah, I was doing that even with my eye-bags present (without concealer), thinking it’s “just something make up artists do”, not realising that it’d bring MORE attention to them! I honestly didn’t realise that until I started writing this post… 😂
I’m an actual lost cause, FFS.
I don’t want to go too off topic, so let’s discuss Bourjois’ Healthy Mix concealer… I came across this small but might product in Superdrug and I remember thinking: “hold on a second!” The rest is ‘his-story’…
(if this post does anything at all, it’ll prove to us all that size doesn’t matter)
Bourjois’ Healthy Mix correcting concealer smooths away dark circles and hides all imperfections for a visibly rested and radiant look.
Vitamin enriched for a healthy glow its exquisite glide-on formula blends onto the skin for a natural result.
This concealer is absolutely everything.! It is my go-to this Summer, but I know I’ll use it all year round.
Usually, I’d wear L’Oréal’s BB cream and powder. However, with this, I don’t need to… I just apply this on my chin, under-eyes, bridge of my nose and Cupid’s bow followed by a blending and blotting session with powder. Then, I’d go on as normal, applying my Bourjois highlighter and contour. That’s literally it. It’s so lightweight, but the coverage and result is so good. My skin looks like it’s been kissed by the Complexion Gods.
One thing to note: Bourjois’ concealer comes in three shades – 1, 2 and 3. If you hadn’t realised my ancestral links to Einstein before this post, know that they are THERE! Light, Medium and Dark are their names, I’d imagine (the concealer, not Einstein’s relatives)…
The packaging is ADORABLE! Look, I do think they are stingy with the amount of product they give us. But, I don’t want to complain because a little goes a long way! Also, Superdrug’s offering 3 for 2 on Bourjois, so you can get three bottles for the price of two #bargain #result #winning.
The scent of it is a little similar to the foundation: fruity. However, there is a bit of that chemical foundation-y smell which lingers on the nostrildamus…
The coverage: medium but buildable. When set with powder, it looks as though Anthony Joshua K’Od your face (without the bruising and dislocation of bone structures). What I mean is, you’ll look KNOCK OUT!
The price: drugstore-esque. For the results you get, it’s very affordable and worthy.
Would I recommend it? If you’re still wondering whether I would at this point, you need a revelation…
