PRICE: rs.99 for 18gm and rs.199 for 40gm.

PACKAGING :The packaging is very simple with a beige outer cover that is opaque having a white cap.It is travel freindly.

???????????????????????????????

OVERALL PERFORMANCE:The garnier BB cream is available only in 1 shade in India. However,it does adjusts to every skin tone and provides a healthy,dewy glow to face.

On application,it does provide a bit of white cast on my face but becomes normal within 3-5 minutes.

The texture of the BB cream is niether very runny nor very thick but spreads out easily.It is very hydratign and moisturising.

???????????????????????????????

The coverage is very light but sufficient to even out skin tone and cover minor redness.But major problem areas need concealer.

Finish is dewy but not very much.It gives a healthy glow ot face.

I like how light it feels on face and blends easily.I mostly apply it with my fingers.It also has SPF 24 that gives UVA/UVB protection along with Vitamin C that works as antioxidants.

L-R: bare hand,with bb cream,blended!!

L-R: bare hand,with bb cream,blended!!

It has a pleasant fragrance which may be overpowering for sensitive noses but it smells good and the fragrance lingers for quite sometime.Staying power is around 5-6 hours which is pretty decent.

I mostly use it under my foundation for added benefits.

Bourjois 123 perfect foundation-53(beige clair) review & swatches

???????????????????????????????

2. Mauve pigments – corrects dullness for radiance

3. Green pigments – neutralises redness for an even out the complexion

Soft and smooth formula for an undetectable, second skin finish. Available in 9 natural shades to suit all skin types.

**Instrumental test on 31 women

***Scientifically tested on 30 women

PRICE: rs.1250.

PACKAGING:The foundation comes in a glass bottle with a pump dispenser that i really like.It is a no fuss packaging.The shade name and number are provided at the cap.

???????????????????????????????

SHADE: the shade number 53 beige clair is a perfect match to my skin.It completely settles into my skin tone and nobody can judge that i am wearing a foundation.I find this shade to be a little darker a s i prefer a little brightening foundation(like one tone lighter) but the shade range provided is very limited and shade 52 seemed to be way too light.

I simply dust off my powder compact and i get the desired shade.

???????????????????????????????

TEXTURE,FINISH & STAYING POWER: 

The consistency of the foundation is neither too runny nor very thick.It blends perfectly into the skin.I really like the fact that i gives ample time for blending unlike the Flower perfection foundation that dried super fast.

The finish is matte but comfortable matte meaning it doesnt accentuate dry areas of skin.It doesnt oxidise on my skin.

I normally dont feel the need to powder my face as it stays matte but the shade i chose is a little darker for my liking so i have to dust finishing powder over it.

The coverage is medium and its doesnt feel heavy even after 4 layes.YES!!! even after 4 layers,i tried layering this to see how much coverage it provides but i found that i covers redness,minor skin imperfections,uneveness to one extent.After that ,even layering wont help.

As far as 3 pigment claim is there..

ie.

1. Yellow – To conceal dark circles.
2. Mauve – To perk up dull complexions.
3. Green – To soften any redness on the face.
I feel that it does conceal dark circles,soften redness to some extent but the brightening part is no where.It might be due to the shade i bought!!!
Staying power is around 7-8 hours .It could have stayed a bit more but i generally remove my makeup after this period!!!
???????????????????????????????
You can easily notice that i corrects the dark circles,yellowness,uneveness and redness to major extent but nit fully!!!
PROS:
  • blends easily.
  • nice floral fragrance.
  • stays for about 7-8 hours or even more.
  • doesnt oxidise.’
  • stays matte.
  • the pump provided is of good quality.
  • easily available.
  • the 3 pigments does work to an extent.
  • light weight.
  • very comfortable on skin.
  • medium coverage foundation.
  • non comedeologic.
  • lets skin breathe
CONS:
  • doesn’t cover red marks fully.
  • sensitive nose might be allergic to the fragrance.
  • might not suit dry skin as it provides matte finish.
  • limited shades available.
RATING: 3.5/5
RECOMMENDATION: This is a decent foundation and great for oily skin.Definitely worth giving a try!!!!
