Welcome To The Family | Bourjois City Radiance Foundation


Every so often you come across a foundation that has it all. These moments may be few and far between, but when they happen each use brings back all those feelings of relief, joy and unbelievable looking skin. My latest obsession is the Bourjois City Radiance Foundation*. A lightweight formula that blends beautifully, has an SPF of 30 and gives off a fabulous glow without looking greasy. 

I'm not over exaggerating when I say this lasts all day. I've left work with full confidence that I can go for drinks afterwards without any touch ups. Of course the radiant finish means that you can't walk around rubbing your face all day and expect it to remain in tact. A light dusting of translucent powder around the nose, on the forehead and chin will keep you secure for the most part. But keep those pesky little fingers away!


When it comes to concealing blemishes this okay but don't expect it to work miracles. It's not heavy as it has a light to medium coverage. On good skin days I can wear this alone with confidence, but on those when I need a little bit of help I use the Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer, these two are a match made in heaven.

What I love most about this is the finish, just look at that glow! My skin is illuminated all day and the finish is as airbrushed as your going to get for a standalone lightweight product. No primers, no magic sprays, all you need is one thin layer. 

As you may know, I like to keep an eye out for new products and hardly ever repurchase makeup items. But I already have a reserve and a second shade for days when I'm wearing fake tan. For me that's a big deal. I have only ever repurchased 3 foundations in my life and they're a part of my concrete collection. Looks like this has made the cut.
