Today I am reviewing Bourjois 123 perfect foundation. Before purchasing it, I was a little hesitant to get it because it is a total matte finish foundation and my skin is very dry. But then I decided to try my luck after reading some positive reviews about it.
So without further ado, let's talk about the product.
Bourjois 123 perfect foundation
It comes in a glass bottle with a pump to dispense the product. I love such pump bottles because they are very convenient to use and hygienic as well. Well you need to be careful in handling that glass bottle.
But I like its packaging specially pump dispenser.
It is a perfect matte finish foundation specially for Ladies having oily skin. But girls with dry skin can also wear it and flaunt a flawless skin. The key to this is moisturizing very well before its application. I repeat "moisturise very well". If a smallest spot of dryness is left on your skin, then it will accentuate it very badly. It sets to a matte powder finish but doesn't look or feel cakey and feels very light on the skin.
This is my go to foundation these days. I moisturize my skin very well before applying it. In addition I mix a little moisturizer and foundation on the back of my hand and then apply it on my face. The reason for doing this is that it sets very quickly so in this way I get a little time to blend it and also it gives extra moisture and locks it in my skin.

Another very important thing about this foundation is that it claims to have three color correction pigments.
1* yellow pigments
anti dark circles
2* mauve pigments
I am glad that these pigments really work. I don't need to use concealer under my eyes. But if you have some very nasty zits or spots then you might need concealer on those areas. Also it sets to a powder finish so I don't use compact powder. So in fact it saves a lot of time for me by skipping the steps of concealer and compact powder. That is why it is my HG foundation these days.

Bourjois 123 perfect foundation in 51 light vanilla swatch
The shade 51 light vanilla is a good match for my skin, but I wanna try 52 as well.
The consistency is not runny, rather it is slightly thick which is easy to handle and blend. It has a mild smell that is not bothersome and disappears in couple of minutes.
Staying power is also very good, it claims for 16 hrs. I didn't try for so long time but I am sure it can last that longer. Stayed on my skin from noon till late night. Also it doesn't transfer either. I think staying power is variable depending upon the type of your skin.
It doesn't oxidize at all. And coverage is medium yet buildable. It lasts longer and it is very good for our hot humid weather in summer.
I bought it for PKR 2250 from Shaheen chemist.
Overall it is a very good foundation for oily skin people. But girls having dry skin can also use it after intensely moisturizing their skin like I am using it and I am vary happy with the results.
So lovelies, that was all about today's post.
What is your favorite foundation these days. Have you ever tried Bourjois 123 perfect?
Take care and stay blessed.
