Bourjois Nude Sensation Foundation.

Recently I have been looking for a lighter foundation that I can just whip on, no fuss, no brushes, no sponges etc. For those days when I am not in the mood for too much makeup (most of the time) but I just want to even things out a little bit all over, making myself look a bit more awake. I am someone who finds buying foundations awkward and more often than not I buy the wrong shade. This means I tend to stick to the same things over and over. The other day in Superdrug I decided to just bite the bullet and picked up one I had heard nothing about, the Bourjois Nude Sensation Foundation in no. 41 Nude Clair.

So far I have been very happy with it! It has a light/sheer coverage but still does a great job at getting rid of redness and really evens out my skin. It creates a very light, airbrush kind of effect that still looks natural. It didn't quite cover my spots but it did a pretty good job at blurring my scars, whilst still allowing my natural skin tone to come through a little. Although light, it did still make a big difference to my complexion, really brightening it and making me look much more awake and healthy looking.

Bourjois always bring out great foundations that lean towards the lighter side and the Nude Sensation Foundation reminds me slightly of the Bourjois 10 Hour Sleep Effect Foundation in how it brightens the face. It also makes it glowy but not dewy or shiny as it has a slightly matte finish. Although slightly matte, it is still very light texture as it's quite a creamy/whipped foundation. It feels really nice on the skin and is also really easy to blend. I want this to be a quick, throw on, so I just used my fingers to blend and it worked into the skin really nicely, melting in. I didn't feel it on my skin throughout the day and it was really nice to wear. Whenever I catch glimpses of my reflection I am always impressed at how natural looking it is. For such a light foundation it also had some pretty good staying power and I didn't notice it fading much towards the end of the day.

Let me know!
