Review: Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer

I bought this concealer a few weeks back upon the recommendation of the gorgeous Estée from EssieButton. Although I'm still madly in love with both my Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer and my Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch, I loved the foundation from this line and wanted to see what the concealer was like.
I really like the packaging design. It comes in a dinky little tube that is compact, and has a convenient and hygienic applicator.

The consistency of the product is akin to a very thick foundation, and so is the coverage. While this is labelled as a 'radiance and anti-fatigue' concealer, provides a medium coverage and a nice brightening effect under the eyes, it isn't overly 'highlighting' or at all shimmery.
It feels a little powdery after blending, which makes me think that this may not suit dry skins as much as normal-oily, but the staying power is really good, with just one or two touch ups needed throughout the day.

Like a lot of Bourjois products, it is quite heavily scented so might irritate more sensitive skins, but i personally haven't had an issue with it. I bought this in shade 53 and it's a pretty good match for my skin colour. Although you could use this on smaller blemishes, it is more suited to the eye area and I still tend to use another (higher coverage) concealer on spots.
Overall, this is a lovely little product that I will use up and enjoy. I might purchase it again, I might not... It's not on my 'must have' list, but it's got a solid (and thoroughly deserved) spot in my everyday makeup bag!

You can buy Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer from Boots & Superdrug for £7.99, but it's currently on offer on the Boots website.

  1. I just bought this yesterday and today is the first day I worn it, and i have to say I love it- I definitely prefer it to the Collection 2000 concealer, probably because I have more normal-oily skin :)

  4. I think nothing ever beats high-end Concealers! I have three, all of which are the best I've ever had an are high-end. Although I haven't tried the collection 2000 one yet, I think I should with the hype surrounding it.

  5. I have heard a few good things about this maybe it's time I tried it since I always stick with the same one

  6. I've heard a lot about this! I'm really tempted to buy it because it's drugstore and not that expensive I think :D

    Great post!

  10. I am selling the foundation from this range in a shade 53 if you wanted to try that as well! It is a shade too dark for me, I always find it so difficult in boots to get the right shade because they have such orangey lighting! xxx

  12. I buy this concealer repeatedly although interestingly didn't get on with the foundation at all,(slid off). But this concealer is just right - I find it works better on top of my foundation rather than underneath it. Great coverage and no bad reactions with my skin - slightly expensive for a drugstore concealer but lasts ages.

  16. My favourite concealer is Rimmel Hide The Blemish Concealer, it works wonders on my dark circles and spots (: I have been looking for a liquid concealer recently though,any suggestions are welcome (my email is on my blog profile) I have dry skin <3

    Thanks for the review Fleur (I'm a new follower) xoxox

  20. I love this concealer. I know it's not THE highest coverage but because of the powdery finish it's so buildable :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I've never tried this foundation, but I actually might! I think I'll have to try the Collection 2000 one first though, as I haven't tried that either, and I've heard so much about it! I have normal to dry skin, so that might be more suitable for me.. Great review! :)

  23. Been umming and ahhing over this and the foundation for a while now and still so unsure! After you saying it might not suit dry skin im on the fence even more now because I sometimes have dry skin on my forehead and the sides of my nose! Great review as always :) xxx

  26. Im not a fan, the packaging makes it hard to squeeze out the right amount. The shade range is abysmal their isnt a dark enough shade for me and im only medium dark so it makes me ashy. I have dry skin and it makes my under eyes really dry. I love the foundation although the shade range is poor again, come summer I have to mix it with my illamasqua skinbase.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I bought this too, and I have dry skin - no problems as of yet. I've also got dead sensitive skin, and I don't find it to be irritating at all. I love my collection 2000 too, but I keep that for more 'serious' blemishes. :)

  41. Went out to Boots but as I was just about to buy this product I remembered that it had a strong scent and postponed my purchase of a liquid concealer ehe

    I have a mini- competition on my blog (First 5 followers, I will follow their blogs back) I am new to blogger and have a lot of great ideas that I would love to share with you all :)

  47. This used to be in my everyday make up bag, though I've changed it for Origins Plantscription Concealer which has the coverage of Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer, has a dewy finish and is perfect for dryer skin types - you should check it out!

  53. This is a million times better the collection 2000 concealer, the collection one is so unhygienic, dry and cakey, I have oily skin and this one is a must have for me.

  54. I really wish Bourjois was available in the US, or I could find a place to purchase that ships to the US. Superdrug needs to start US delivery. lol Great blog post as usual. xx

  55. When my Collection concealer runs out I think I'm going to try this. I'd like to think that it might be better for the skin...I wonder if it makes a difference?

  63. I've tried a few of Bourjois' foundation and concealer products and haven't found one that works for my dry skin as, like you said, the formula can be quite powdery. It's such a shame as I hadn't tried this yet..and they do all smell lovely! <3

  77. Hi, i was wondering if you could help me. I had a blackhead on my nose and i stupidly tried to remove it. As a result of that it has now scarred, it almost looks like a beauty mark, its a pure black spot and i cant seem to cover it up. i was wondering if you would help me with this.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I didn't like this, I'm still trying to use it up but I find it looks really cakey and heavy under my eyes so I only use it on spots and things :(

    ReplyDelete
  79. I've got this one and not keen on it at all. Too dark and the consistency is just too heavy. Collection's Lasting Perfection is still the winner from the budget range x

  80. Is the title meant to be healthy mix foundation? Just thought I'd point it out! :) I'm going to pick up this concealer when I am next in boots and give it a shot! xxx
