Baps what shade of Bourjois do you use? Your complexion seems fairly close to mine, but I am a bit hesitant to just order it online. Too bad I can't try it anywhere.

Its 51 Vanille Clair which is the lightest i think. I use the healthy mix serum foundation as my skin is drier. The regular healthy mix is good for more oily or combination skin.

My favourite is still makeup forevers HD foundation. So awesome.

Do you get Bourjois on the US? Their healthy mix foundation is vegan and pretty great.


I wonder how it compares to the Chanel Vitalumiere.

Which one? I know their BB Creams are but I have never asked about foundations as I've never tried one.

Boots are pretty good at replying though if you email them about vegan-ness!

Ok thanks, will email them. I don't think they sell the BB cream here. Just the foundation and botanical line. I just suck at researching ingredients. I might as well be reading Japanese. I got the Bourjois foundation in the mail, but haven't tried it yet. Always fun to try new stuff, and I always end up using everything I buy.

The Gosh BB cream is vegan and gets great reviews online. I am definitely getting myself one next week!

Been using the Bourjois foundation and I really like the feel. It's not very heavy so good for every day wear. For evenings out etc I would use a heavier one though, or a BB.

YAY I'm really glad you like it. I generally wear a BB cream in the day and I just wear this for night time. It's about as heavy as I want my foundation to be though.

I just got the healthy mix serum, too! I haven't been using it long, but I like it so far. It feels really nice on my skin.

I didn't know Bourjois was cruelty free! Is there a list of their vegan items?

not that I know of but they do get back to you in pretty good time. I know their healthy mix foundation and concealer are vegan, but that's all I've asked about.

i got some face atelier samples this week, and the makeup seems so great--covers well, doesn't get all up in my crinkles, stays put--but the lightest shade is still too dark and pink for my skin, which is an apparently unmatchable shade of old-paper beige-ish ivory. i got a sample of the zero minus, too, because i'm always too pale for things, but my undertones are so sandy that even at the right depth of color, the line between yellow me and peachy-pink makeup was really noticeable. *sigh* is there a company that makes foundation in mushroom tones instead of flesh tones?

ELF has a liquid concealer in their studio line that's in a squeeze tube like the tinted moisturizers are, but it's not yellow-based. Obviously it's kind of heavy since it's a concealer, it goes on really well if you have a face primer but if you just make sure your shiitake is blended, primer isn't a requirement.

And they're having a 1/2 off studio items right now.

I really like the new Wet 'n Wild coverall foundation. I bought the lightest shade thinking I needed to go that pale, and it is way pale on me, so I mixed a bunch of darker foundation with it so I can still use. it, but it may be perfect for you. I don't think it has any undertones at all, as far as I can tell, and for $3.99 you should try it!

My two favorite foundations are from 100% Pure - http://www.100percentpure.com/HEALTHY-S ... S-s/51.htm and Gabriel - tp://www.gabrielcosmeticsinc.com/index. ... dation.cfm I feel like the Gabriel is a little more full coverage, but the ingredients in 100% Pure are a bit more natural.

For those of you with combo skin, what brand(s) have you had success with? I have an oily t-zone and medium sized pores, and I am fighting the blackhead battle. I've used some of moisturizers and whatnot that the PPK has discussed and started using the clairsonic (love it BTW) but I'm pretty sure its my foundation and primer that's doing nothing for me. I tried e.l.f. and for the price I wasn't expecting much, and that's kind of what I'm getting. When its on its ok, my skin looks decent, but I know its totally clogging my face up. I feel like I need to give myself a steam and a facial every night to combat the gunk (obviously i'm not doing that).

I'm not afraid to throw a few bucks at something as long as it doesn't clog my pores... Any recommendations? There's so much info out there, I'm intimidated...

How oily is your t-zone? I have a SUPER oily t-zone and I STILL can't find anything that will stay on my face more than 3 hours. I've tried low end, high end, and everything in between. I'm going crazy!

Its probably not as oily as it could be, only because I live in the desert. I do have to for sure use powder or oil absorbing sheets within 3 hours or so. Have the foundations you tried clogged your pores too, or does it just slide off?

It basically just slides right off of my face. Which is better than clogging pores, but it's still aggravating!

i think all liquid foundation will clog your pores in some way or other. I started using it daily months ago and now pretty often have some white and black heads, before the foundation hardly ever. Not enough for me to quit using it, I feel like I look so bad without it, so blotchy and uneven and tired. And old. Sigh.

I've tried Arbonne, Face Atelier, MAC (pregan), Bare Escentuals, Bare Minerals, and I'm sure there are others I'm forgetting. I have acne scarring so I need something that's med to full coverage.

out of all of those I like Face Atelier the best, I just wish it lasted longer on the oil slick that is my t zone.

Total noob question but what is a BB cream? I've only really heard of them in the last year or so.
