I got this foundation from mascaramafia.com(now beautyarena.com) for PKR 2030.

It comes in sturdy glass bottle with a pump.I like the packaging a lot.[UPDATE:My baby has thrown it on tiled floor at least a dozen times from my table, but it survived.So,I would give it an "A" on packaging :)].


The foundation itself is liquid-y and sticky in consistency.It is not runny at all and has perfect consistency of a liquid foundation.This ensures no spillage or waste of product.It has a mild scent which stays.It was a little uncomfortable for me.


It spreads on skin easily, but you have to blend it real fast because it dries and sets quick.After setting,it does not budge.No amount of rubbing will remove or blend it.So,that is pretty much the only disadvantage.The trick is apply it to face and blend in sections.Dotting it on whole face and blending will not give good results.


The foundation takes no time in setting ,and after some minutes literally melts in your skin.It gives a second skin effect.The best part is that this foundation becomes a part of my skin( as you can see in photos).It is hardly visible.Both in real and in photos.

I apply with my hands so cant say if the finish would improve with brushes.

[UPDATE:This foundation is best applied with fingers.It gives a caked up look when applied with brush].


Coverage is sheer  and can be built up to medium.The pigments work well but I always have to wear a  concealer for dark circles.

It gives a matte finish.A little powdery look.so, no need to wear pressed powder.


The skin feels soft and hydrated after wearing the foundation.It  feels very light on skin, and if it wasn't for the scent I might have forgotten that I was wearing it.


The oil controlling properties converted me to this foundation.My skin is really,really oily and normally it becomes shiny after 1 hour when I am wearing makeup but with this foundation,only my nose became shiny after 3 hours and I had to do a touch up with  powder.So,yeah pretty good.


Staying power is amazing .I can not say 16, but it definitely stayed on my face for 8-10 hours...no touch ups.


It does not oxidize and doesn't change color at all.The girls with oily skin know what a blessing it is if their foundation does not change color.


However,this base is not for dry skin at all,in any season.People with combination skin can use it in summers.



RECOMMENDED:

If you have oily skin.

If you need a matte finish with liquid base..

If you need a base that can survive the heat of June and humidity of august in Pakistan.

You need a summer time foundation with SPF in it.


REPURCHASE:

yeah. definitely.


RATING:




I have compared it with Revlon color stay foundation which is a hit with girls who have oily skin.

COMPARISON SWATCH WITH "REVLON COLORSTAY IN NATURAL TAN":

Left is Bourjois 1 2 3 perfect and right is Revlon color stay makeup with softflex( in natural tan.).

Note that Revlon color stay seems runny in comparison with thick  bourjois.Also "natural tan" is closer match to NC35-40 skin tones and hence it looks darker as compared to "Bourjois 123 Perfect in 54 Beige", which is a match for NC 30 complexions.

Observe that its hard to see the foundation on my hand after blending.This swatch is not very helpful because revlon color stay does not show in photos at all.Its hard to notice the difference which was actually so visible in reality.






Overall I would totally recommend it the girls with oily skin.So much so that if you do not find your perfect shade,I would say buy two and mix to get your shade.I totally trust this one.Its my HG,GO to base.What is your HG foundation?

    1. Thankyou so much Meera.i am NC 30 in MAC.The shade 54 beige might be a little dark for you.You can try 53 in Beige clair.This foundation,provided that it is a good match,becomes second skin and looks natural.

    1. Revlon claims that its products are free from animal fats.You only have to beware of carmine.As for bourjois they do not have a clear policy on this so I am really sorry I will not be able to help you in this regard

    2. Sister I have a doubt, in makeup products to know if a product is halal is it okay to check if it is free from animal fats and carmine only ?
      What about the other animal ingredients?
