Bourjois Healthy Mix Correcting Concealor - Review

What it claims: Radiance & Antifatigue
Bourjois’ new Healthy Mix fruit-therapy correcting concealer smooths away dark circles and imperfections for a visibly rested and radiant look.
  • Apricot > radiance
  • Raspberry > micro-circulation
  • Melon > hydration
Its exquisite and glide-on formula blends onto the skin for a natural result, with no marks.
Available in 3 natural anti-dull complexion shades, to reboost the complexion's radiance.
· Moisturizing
· Lets skin breathe, oil-free formula
· Dermatologically tested
Price: Rs. 460 for a tube of 10 ml
Expiration date: use within 3 years
I have this in the color – Dark Radiance (53)
1.      This is a smooth, creamy, highly pigmented but light in feel liquid concealer. It blends in very easily and gives very high coverage as well
2.      It gives an almost flawless look but looks very natural without looking heavy and made up. Even if you apply a little too much, it is easy to blend away
3.      Does not cake up or crease and stays on for 3 to 4 hours. Does not dry out the under eye skin.
4.      The packaging is good, the tube has a perforated opening which lets out a small amount – just as needed. And it is easy to carry and store due to its size
5.      Smells nice.
1.      Very small range of shades – and I think I have this in the darkest color – Dark Radiance – and this matches my skin tone exactly (just a shade lighter). I don't know why they have launched such a small range. Maybe they will expand but as of now the selection is very limited and finding your match is a matter of chance. (This shade is almost the same color as my skin - it is just one shade lighter)
2.      Expensive: Costs a bomb at Rs. 460 for a 10 ml tube. But considering that you need to apply a very very tiny amount of this, it should last for at least 3-4 months
3.      I have used this only on my under-eyes. I don’t know how it fares on blemishes. I prefer to use a harder concealer on blemishes so it stays put.
4.      There is no ingredient list – so I don’t know how much of these fruits extracts it contains.
Will I re-purchase: Yes. Until I find something as good and cheaper.
I have been looking for a good concealer since some time, but nothing seemed to impress me. But this one is not only very easy to use but I also find it delivers on its promise. It is a little expensive, but when I consider that it works so well, and that a good base is the secret to good make-up, this seems worthwhile, unless I find a cheaper and better performing concealer. It is almost error proof because of its easy blending and high coverage. You will not end up with too much and it does not look cakey or weird at all. 
It just blends in like skin.
I even got the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation. Will put up the review for that next week. 
For swatches you can go here and here.


  1. Finally..the much awaited Bourjois healthy Mix is here..But I guess its yet to reach Blr market.

    You have a very light complexion no? In that case, if their darkest is 1 shade lighter than your skin tone, then probably they haven't come up with shades for darker tones.

    Btw, have you tried Colorbar creamy concealer. I bought it last week and have been loving it so far.

    Good review.

  2. @Poornima: Yup, it is here in Mumbai. Launched like a month ago.

    There range for concealors is very bad for darker skin tones.

    As per Bobbi Brown the concealer should be 2-3 shades lighter than the skin tone, so if you go by her a more darker person than me could use this as well. Each to her own.

    Don't know about the foundations though.

    I have heard about colorbar concealer but it has been discontinued here - I was told this in 3 separate stores by 3 different SAs. They say it has been discontinued as it was not doing well, I was actually looking for that earlier - for a good 2 to 3 months. I gave up then and looked in other brands and liked bourjois the best and it was the most economical.

    Thks :)

  3. I use loreal concealer .Its little expensive but last for a year so I don't mind purchasing it.It is so good that i don't feel like trying another.

    I like your honest review as always:)

  4. Oh nice :) Haven't been 2 any Bourjois counter in a long time so was not aware this was launched already. Will check them out soon.


  5. I like hoe it sounds .. buh I already have Colorbar concealer .. will get it once the Colorbar one finishes :P

  6. Wanted to try this after reading a review on another blog. Should try it the next time I spot a Bourjois counter. I hope I find a proper shade, though.

  7. @Poornima: Bourjois Healthy Mix is available in Bangalore at Lifestyle in Koramangala (Sony World junction). Atleast I think it is coz I saw a huge bourjois healthy mix advt covering an entire wall, and they do have a bourjois counter.

    @Tanvi: Looking forward to your review on the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation. Hope it's a good product coz the search for my HG foundation is still on ;)

  8. @Anamika: Thks :).. Concelor is one product I don't mind spending a bit on coz a lil goes a real long way, plus it makes a lot of difference to the skin. I will try out this L'oreal one? U shd try to do a review on it :)

    Thks - I do try to be as objective and honest as i can be. Someone might try a prdt depending upon my review, and skin differences not widstanding, I would hate to give them a wrong impression and waste their money, as far as possible :)

  9. @CZ: Let me know what you think of it. You have used other products like YSL Touche Elact so you can compare to give us a better picture :D

  10. @Palak: You guys are so lucky u managed to land this CB concealer, it just went outta stock b4 i cld. :D.. So glad yr exams are over :D

  11. @Rads: Do let me know if u like it ;D

    @Jewel: I will post soon on the foundation, hopefully it will help you in your search. Though just to give you a hint - I am liking it, so far so good. :D

    & Thks for tht update on Bangalore Bourjois counters.

  12. I love this concealer! It's expensive in India, but you're paying the same price I did at Boots in the UK!

  13. Will sure try this one too!
    BTW where were you in between...disappeared from blogosphere?

  14. Will sure try this one too!
    BTW where were you .....disappeared from blogosphere for a while.

  15. I guess will try this one....
    BTW where were you....disappeared from blogosphere for a while......

  16. Oh this sounds so nice. Finally you got your concealer, you have been waiting for it for so long no? :) But id the darkest shade is lightest for you what are we gonna do. :(

    So looking forward to your foundaion review. Do it soon. :) Btw are you using any mineral foundation these days? I am planning to get one. Any recos from you?

  17. Oh my quest for concealing my under eye circles never ends! I might try this, but I've also heard very good things about a Bobbi Brown concealor + powder duo package.

  18. It does not sound like its a concealer by name at all..I thought that this was some new lotion type product which wld even out the skin!!Fancy name!!

    I like hw it sounds- Is expensive though!!And wats up with the no-ingredient list!!They wld not do this abroad!
    Nice crisp style of review!1

  19. nice review...tanvi, but doesnt it smell like fuller's earth? something like clay? y do i get such strange smell, then? I told sarah abt that, but she didnt agree...

    if they launch wide range of shades, we find them too confusing...if less # of shades, we feel it would be better if they came up with more # of shades...LOL...i told the same to Sonali :)

  20. @Jamilla: I too love this concealer! So glad we aren't shelling out extra bucks like we normally do. Thks for sharing and dropping by! :D

  21. @Yuvna: Do let me know if you like it. Yea, I went on a kind of mini break :)

  22. @Rati: Yup, I really like this concealor. Will do foundation review nxt week.

    Frankly I am yet to jump onto the mineral makeup bandwagon, but Divs recommended TBS Mineral makeup line as good :)

    @Ashwini: We don't get bobbi brown make up here :(... yet. :)

  23. @Simran: Don't even get me started on the names they are coming up these days. I would say Healthy Mix - sounds like a fruit drink, rather than a concealor. :D.

    It is expensive, but you need to use very very little, so it would last even with daily usage for at least 3-4 months.

    Thks :D

  24. @Divs: Nahi ya, it smells a little fruity to me :P..

    Small range is good for those who manage to find a suitable shade, so I pretty much don't care if they have a tinsy-winsy range as long as i get my match

    For those who can't it is a problem - kinda like how mentioned in your review of TBS Mineral Foundation.

  25. Hey Jewel..


    Thank you for that bit of info..yes I know that place. Oasis Centre no?

    OMG now I need to go to Koramangla to test it?..God help me!!

  26. The post is very informative....i did try the concealers but they are too white for indian skins....maybe good for north indians but horrible for ones in mumbai...i wish bourjois made more colors for indian skin tones as the texture is AMAZING!!

Reetha, Amla & Shikakai Home Made Shampoo - Weekend Experiment

Good Morning Lovelies, I hope your weekend was fun. Mines was, well, ho-hum, but anyways, we are not talking about that here (let’s save that cribbing for twitter).
I have been suffering from quite a bit of hair fall since some time. I have tried changing products to using intensive conditioning and the works. It stops the hair fall for while, but then it rears its ugly head again.
So on lark, & for lack of better things to do, my best friend & I decided to make some Reetha – Amla – Shikakai shampoo at home. This century old ayurvedic herbal concoction is reputed to not only strengthen hair, but also darken it and stop hair fall.
I got the 3 biggies from a local kirana store. All 3 are priced at 15 Rs for 100gms.

How to: Soak 5 pieces of Shikakai, 4 balls of Reetha  (Soapnut) & handful of Amla (Indian Gooseberry)  in about 500 ml of water overnight. In the morning, heat the mixture on gas till it just starts to boil. Let it cool, when lukewarm mash all the amla, reetha and…

Skin Care Myth: Sunscreen will stop you from Tanning

Image via Wikipedia I know I did a recent article on skin care myths (read it here), but I don't know how I forgot to mention this particular myth. In any case I think this warranted a post on its own.

Myth: If I use a suncreen regularly and religiously, I will not tan. 

Fact: This is a very simplistic statement. But before I bust this myth, kindly bear through a science lecture. This is to bring all readers of all backgrounds on the same knowledge level.

Lets define sunscreen (from Wikipedia):Sunscreen (also commonly known as sunblock or sun cream) is a lotion, spray, gel or other topical product that absorbs or reflects "some" of the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the skin exposed to sunlight and thus helps protect against sunburn. Sunscreen helps protect only against direct DNA damage as it cannot dissipate UV as harmless heat.

The SPF of a sunscreen is a laboratory measure of the effectiveness of sunscreen — the higher the SPF, the more protection a sunscreen …

I made "Washed Ghee" at home and it turned out great!

Yesterday I posted about the importance of fat in our diet. While doing research for the same I came across the recipe for "Washed Ghee" or Shata Dhaut Ghrita (100 times washed ghee).

After I read about this miracle at home cream, it was inevitable that I would try to create this cream myself. All I needed apparently was some cow ghee & water.

So I made it last evening. And here is how it went.

For those readers who haven't read the earlier post: Hundred times washed ghee is prepared from organic cow milk ghee by washing it in purified water, repeatedly, 100 times in a copper vessel, using a specific prescribed method while chanting some mantras

This procedure transforms the ghee into a soft, cooling, nourishing, silky unguent that is used as a traditional moisturizer and anti wrinkle skin cream. It produces radiant and glowing skin, especially for people with easily inflamed skin. It can be used as a daily face and body moisturizer or for facial massage. Apply it for…
