Bourjois can do not wrong in my eyes, and in many other bloggers eyes too.
I picked up their 10 Hour Sleep EffectFoundation back in December. I hadn’t read any reviews on it, so I didn’t (and still don’t) know how old/new it is to their collection and I didn’t know whether I’d even like it. Riskayy.
Bourjois 10 Hour Sleep Effect is an anti-fatigue liquid foundation (think the texture of true match… pretty runny!) with a light coverage; perfect for my skin as I don’t need anything heavy. It does claim that dark circles and imperfections are “replaced” or covered, though I do have to concealer up my dark circles, which is pretty standard for most foundations, even the ones with a higher coverage.
(Excuse the fake tan hand...)
Initally I was a bit “meh” when I tried it. Take it or leave it kind of thing. However the more I use it the more I love it. Grower not a shower. It really does just wake my skin up, even my skin tone and generally make me look perkier. It contains high concentrations of vitamins and minerals (E, F and B5 to be exact), which I’m assuming are its magic secrets!
Praise the lord for the pump bottle; Bourjois are so good for that! You don’t end up with it loads all over your hand and nowhere to put it. I like to buff mine in with my Zoeva 102 Silk Finish face brush or my trusty Real Techniques Expert Face brush for a flawless, even finish. I thought the foundation was a tad too orange looking for my skin but once applied this isn’t a problem at all.
If you’re in the market for a brightening light foundation then I’d definitely recommend this one. I don’t know if it’s a dupe for Rimmel Wake Me Up, but I will always stay loyal to Bourjois. I know the shade range with Bourjois isn’t amazing, but if you can find one to match and it sounds like what you’re after then I’d definitely recommend picking one up.
Have you tried this foundation? Will it be going on your drug store wish list?
