Regular readers know that I am 20% human and 80% zombie. Why? Lack of sleep, my dears, what do you expect with all the blogging I do? Anyway, its something which I am gradually getting better at…
Meanwhile, Bourjois 10 Hour Sleep Effect Foundation is something I am trying out to imitate the look of having lots of Zzzz’s:
Oh kitty kat, I am so envious of your endless dozing.
Bourjois 10 Hour Sleep Effect Foundation is supposed to:
– Conceals signs of fatigue, dark circles, imperfections
And is enriched with Vitamins E, B5 (more about this in another post) and minerals.
I actually bought this because there was so much positive chatter about it from other Blogging ladies. I am a bit of a foundation snob (base products in general) so I never go browsing make up stands for foundations.
However recently being a sucker, I have been exploring more affordable brands.
Bourjois base cost me about £8 so its not THAT cheap but its not exactly heart wrenching like buying my La Mer foundation was.
The consistency of the 10 Hour Sleep Effect Foundation is quite watery – its oil free I believe, and is fairly ungreasy.
Its great that theres no oil but its a little too thin for me. For one thing, I need the hydration for my dry, dry skin so I prefer something thicker.
I also need coverage for the redness on my skin and this was a little too sheer. I need to layer a few layers to cover the red patches (brought up by dryness).
The other issue is that it didn’t last on me. By late lunchtime, all my blemishes and red bits were there, beaming back at me.
On my skin – the result is glowy and dewy which I do like:
The foundation is lightly scented. I kind of like the smell.
Let’s do a pro and cons.
– Dewy natural finish
– Makes the skin look brighter
– Too sheer for me (coverage insufficient)
– Didn’t last more than 4 hours on my skin
If you already have good skin, this would be a nice choice for you. If you like the glowy look but want more coverage I would recommend the Boots No. 7 Lift & Luminate Foundation as it gives that dewy look with more hydration and coverage.
