NARS Sheer Glow VS Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation

Tuesday, 22 January 2013
Hiya,

I like doing comparison posts because I think you really get a feel of how similar two products are. I have two foundations which I really love pretty much equally. They are both similar in a lot of ways but there is a huge price difference between the two.


The first is the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation. This is a medium coverage foundation which gives a beautiful finish. It definitely does give you a glow as it states in the name.






This applies very well and blends very nicely too. It does not leave streaks and I really like the finish it gives.

Second, the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation!




 


 This again, blends very well and is also buildable. It is also a medium coverage foundation.

What I notice that is different about this foundation is that it is more runny than the NARS Sheer Glow. This does mean that you get a little longer to blend in the foundation on your face. It is also a little more dewy than the NARS foundation.

Here are the two swatches together,
NARS Sheer Glow

Bourjois Healthy Mix
The lasting power on both foundations is pretty much the same. I always add a setting powder to at least my T-zone area and find that both these foundations last pretty well on me for at least 6-8 hours, which is the maximum time I will wear make up at one time anyway. Bourjois Healthy Mix also has a fruity scent (which does not last on the skin, but I really like) whereas the NARS foundation does not seem to have a scent.

There is a huge price difference in both these foundations.

NARS Sheer Glow is priced at £29.50 whereas the Bourjois Healthy Mix is a mere £9.99 in comparison. The NARS foundation is almost three times more expensive!

Having said that, I don't know why but I seem to go more towards the NARS foundation on a regular basis. Maybe it is the fact that it is not as runny as the Healthy Mix?

I would probably repurchase both foundations if I ran out, I really cannot pick between the two completely but I would say that you should definitely try the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation if you cannot afford NARS Sheer Glow.

    1. serum version is also great, but it gives less coverage than the foundation, which is great for everyday use and for those with no problem skin. And it smells so good!

    1. It is for sure, you're right it is better in the winter because it can get a little oilier in the summer time x
