Many users note that tonal creams from Bourjois often have a yellowish tint (especially with this shade of “vanilla”). This makes it difficult for owners of light "porcelain" skin, although the color spectrum of Bourjois foundation creams varies from the lightest Vanilla to the darkest Bronze. To choose the right shade for your skin, you should apply a foundation on the line of the lower jaw (on the border between the face and neck). Let's take a quick look at the tonal palettes:
- "Healthy Mix Foundation" - Six shades, from light “Vanilla” to light “Bronze”.
- "123 Perfect CC Cream " - only four shades: the color "Ivory Skin", "Light Beige", "Pink Beige" and "Bronze". The first two shades are great for owners of fair skin, and you can even experiment with the third (thanks to the pink undertones).

When planning to buy a particular product, it is advisable to get acquainted with the opinions of people who have already tried it. Of course, to make a decision if you rely only on reviews is reckless, but some conclusions can be made. Consumer opinions on tonal products from Bourjois vary, although most do not hide admiration for the quality and effect of the company's products. Customer reviews confirm almost all the manufacturer's statements, which increases the degree of confidence in the products. Judging by the reviews, the series “Healthy Mix Foundation”, as well as “10 Hour Sleep Effect” are the most popular.
Negative reviews concern most often the cream "Bio Detox Organic". They note both the complexity of the application and the final effect in the form of a "mask". The company tried to make excuses for the opponents, explaining that their dissatisfaction was caused by improper use of the product. Representatives of the brand believe that "Bio Detox Organic" is not intended for use by owners of dry skin, but in case of a strong desire to try the product, it is necessary to apply a moisturizer under it. Only in this case you will get a natural coating without the effect of a "mask".
Secrets of applying
And for dessert - the promised little tricks:
- Clean your skin regularly with a scrub. If you have dry or sensitive skin, use a more gentle means - gommage.
- If you have skin problems, use "123 Perfect CC Cream" - it provides a light coating and moisturizes the epidermis.
- Tonal products with a dense texture are best applied with a slightly damp sponge.
- If you use the cream, wait until it is completely absorbed. Do the same before applying each subsequent coat.
- Start the application from the center of the face, gradually following to the edge along the massage lines - so you will avoid clogging the cream in wrinkles and wrinkles. Try not to have sharp boundaries - thoroughly blend the cream near the hair growth zone and on the line of the face and neck.
- Do not smear the base - apply it on the face, slightly driving in with your fingertips.
- In 10-15 minutes after application, swipe your face with a fluffy brush or soft cloth - this will help remove excess funds and give the makeup a natural look.
Following the above recommendations, you will achieve remarkable results and will attract many admiring glances.
