Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer Review

Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer- £7.49

I bought the Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer in Shade 51 a few weeks ago. As much as I love the famous Collection Lasting Perfection I wanted a change and as I was so impressed with the Healthy Mix Serum I decided to give this a go. For almost double the price of the collection concealer I had high expectations.



The coverage is light build able to medium. It covers my beauty spot ( I refuse to say mole!) well in the above picture but it took a lot of concealer. For me this isn't enough coverage because I get a lot of red angry spots. It's definitely more suited to people with good skin or only a slight bit of redness. One of the selling points is "anti-fatigue" but once again there is no way near enough coverage for my under eye luggage. On the plus side I really like the applicator as it is much more hygienic then a doe foot. It does have good lasting power and even built up it doesn't look at all cakey. You can see the colour matches me well but that is with build up tan lotion on, believe it or not! I know a lot of pale beauties can get away with Bourjois's lightest shades but I am ridiculously pale.

I do think this is a good concealer but unfortunately it just isn't right for me. I will be going back to the trusty Collection concealer and I don't think I will ever betray it again!

Have you tried this concealer? What do you think of the Healthy Mix range?

  1. wow that collection 2000 must be something else! I love bourjois foundations though :)
    being pale ahhh, but i think pale is so beautiful too, and so much more versatile when i comes to makeup! my face gets so pale in the winter time, but my body stays a few shades darker, its quite annoying! ahahaha xx

    1. I do actually like being pale sometimes too. But since I started using tanning lotion it made me wish I had darker skin! That must be a pain in the arse but atleast you have a tanned body x

  7. I've been super curious about this, so I really appreciate the review! I definitely like concealers with a bit heavier coverage and more staying power, so this probably wouldn't be the best for me either. Thanks for the tips!

    1. Yes it is! When I was little someone teased me about all my spots and my mum told me they were beauty spots so the more I had the more beautiful I am. And I still say beauty spot now haha x
