Finding "The One" : My Favourite Foundation

We all know finding "The One" is rather difficult and I don't mean finding your one true love. There's nothing more complicated than finding your perfect foundation- it's a genuine roller coaster of emotions.
Firstly, you'll realise very quickly by perusing the aisles of Boots that there is far too much choice: full coverage or minimum coverage; yellow tones or pink tones; moisturising or oil-free... You'll probably be tempted to just buy the first one you see, just to get the whole daunting process over and done with. In the process of finding your "one" you'll have to deal with a lot of trial and error as you work out what is right for you. There's nothing more heartbreaking than thinking you've found your perfect foundation, only to realise that actually it's not the one for you after all. However, eventually you will find it and I think I've found my "one": Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation.

I adore this foundation. It's exactly what I was looking for. I wanted a foundation that looked very natural on my skin, I am massive fan of the "no make-up look", but that still covers any problem areas well. The Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation is perfect as although it is a light coverage foundation, it does cover redness and dark circles. The foundation claims to be radiance boosting and I completely agree. It has a lovely dewy effect on application, but not too dewy, which really brightens my face without emphasising any imperfections. I have dry skin and I find that this foundation is really moisturising and actually improves the look of my skin. It applies like a dream, I use my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush to apply this, and it is very easy to blend. Also, it has the most delicious smell: think fruit and potpourri. It definitely feels like you're wearing a high-end brand of foundation but for a fraction of the price (the foundation is £10.99). I think I have definitely found my "one".

What is your favourite foundation?
