Review: Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer

I bought this concealer a few weeks back upon the recommendation of the gorgeous Estée from EssieButton. Although I'm still madly in love with both my Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer and my Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch, I loved the foundation from this line and wanted to see what the concealer was like.
I really like the packaging design. It comes in a dinky little tube that is compact, and has a convenient and hygienic applicator.

The consistency of the product is akin to a very thick foundation, and so is the coverage. While this is labelled as a 'radiance and anti-fatigue' concealer, provides a medium coverage and a nice brightening effect under the eyes, it isn't overly 'highlighting' or at all shimmery.
It feels a little powdery after blending, which makes me think that this may not suit dry skins as much as normal-oily, but the staying power is really good, with just one or two touch ups needed throughout the day.

Like a lot of Bourjois products, it is quite heavily scented so might irritate more sensitive skins, but i personally haven't had an issue with it. I bought this in shade 53 and it's a pretty good match for my skin colour. Although you could use this on smaller blemishes, it is more suited to the eye area and I still tend to use another (higher coverage) concealer on spots.
Overall, this is a lovely little product that I will use up and enjoy. I might purchase it again, I might not... It's not on my 'must have' list, but it's got a solid (and thoroughly deserved) spot in my everyday makeup bag!

You can buy Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer from Boots & Superdrug for £7.99, but it's currently on offer on the Boots website.
