Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream is akin to adding a second layer of pretty, natural, radiant skin and I really wasn’t expecting it to last all day – but it does. You’ll be able to tell from my ‘naked face’ photo above left that I have a generous sprinkle of freckles on my face. I also often suffer with fatigued and sallow looking skin so I was interested to try the Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream because it claims to colour correct problem areas on the skin such as fatigue, redness and dark spots. I wanted to see how well it performed as I’m already a big fan of Bourjois Healthy Mix and Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum.
First up is the packaging – I’m not a fan of the squeezy tube, it can get a bit messy if you don’t twist the lid tightly back on. I much prefer a pump dispenser. I squeezed a 20p sized blob on the back of my hand and blended it in using my Sigma F80 – Flat Topped Kabuki Brush.
The results: 9/10 – my new fave high street foundation!
It was really easy to blend and I immediately noticed that it provided medium coverage – muting down my freckles nicely. Even though it’s medium coverage, I must say that it looks really natural on the skin. You can’t see it. I especially liked that it evened out areas where I have pigmentation (mouth and chin area) and even though my freckles are less apparent, you can still see them. It’s a satin finish and gives the skin a lovely natural and subtle glow and it wears really well during the day. This is a really lovely base for normal, dry and mature skins. I also found that it’s also a good colour match on me – I have shade 33.
What I like most is that my skin still looks and feels like skin which is really important to me – check out the last photo to see what I mean. I’m really happy I picked this up and it will be a nice addition to my already growing Bourjois foundation collection.
