Bourjois 123 perfect CC cream review

I am a massive Lisa Eldridge fan, and if you don't know who she is, please go check her blog and her YouTube channel. I bought the healthy mix foundation because of her and it is one of my all time favourite foundations. You can read my thoughts about it in my Current foundations post.

Recently, she had mentioned the 123 perfect CC cream in two of her videos & blog posts and I was really intrigued. I had to try it, and now that I have it, I think this is one of best purchases I've ever made. I never thought I would join in the CC bandwagon and here I am.

I got the shade no 33 rose beige that matches my complexion perfectly, I am very happy with the color matching and its one of the reason why I liked it a lot. It has light to medium coverage which blends evenly like a dream, and is very build able.. It color corrects the skin perfectly so you achieve an even skin tone which doesn't look cakey, or heavy, it just looks like your skin but better. It doesn't give that "foundation" look on your face, and gives a beautiful, non-dewy but radiant finish.

 If you have heavy discoloration, pigmentation, acne scars, or dark circles you will need to use concealer along with it, because you can't expect a cc cream to have a coverage like a concealer.

I apply it using my clean finger, blending it outwards starting from the middle of my face, and use a brush only to blend out the edge. If you have normal to dry skin. you are done, but I have very oily skin so I go ahead and slightly dust my T-zone with powder. It lasts really long, a good 7-8 hours and doesn't slide off your face even when it is sweaty and greasy. It is oil free, which is always a good thing for all us oily skin girls, and also has SPF 15 making it perfect for daily wear. The tube has a narrow nozzle head which makes it convenient to squirt the product out.

I have used it for a week now, I wear it around 10 am in the morning, come back home by 8 pm and its still there on my face, it looks a little worn out, but intact, and it didn't break me out.

It is priced at Rs 710 for 30ml and has 4 shades to choose from 31 Ivory, 32 Light Beige, 33 Rose beige, and 34 Cream Bronze.
