Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer [Review and Swatches]

Hello guys!

So yesterday I posted a review of the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation and today I am going to review the Bourjois Healthy Mix Correcting Concealer :)
Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer
Like the foundation I purchased this in the shade 51 Light Radiance and I managed to purchase this half price from Boots from their BOGO Half Price offer:)

Why did I purchase this concealer?
So again, like the foundation I purchased this after seeing it in Sineady Cady's youtube videos and the reviews that I had seen online. I also purchased this because of the deal and because it was what I had wanted to try for a long time:)

Coverage and appearance claims
I have to admit that this concealer actually surprised me quite a lot!
It really works well to cover up blemishes and although it isn't a highlighting concealer, you can use it to cover dark circles:) This looks really natural and is hardly noticeable (it only will if you really cake it up.)
It also claims that it makes your skin radiant and like the foundation it mentions fruit therapy. It says that the apricot provides radiance and the raspberry is a micro-circulation activator.
As you can see inn the picture below, Bourjois claims that this has a moisturising formula and that it is oil free. I agree with both of these claims but it can be a tiny bit oily if it is a very hot day:)
How long does it last for?
I can't find a claim anywhere about how long this will last. I think it lasts the same as the foundation or maybe a little less if your skin is oily.
Overall this lasts roughly 12 hours which is pretty amazing!
If you are going to want to touch up your concealer throughout the day I would advise you to blot your face first and then touch up the concealer:) If you have combination/oily skin it would be best for you to set this after with a powder.

Shade selection
I have only seen this in four shades so you might have more trouble finding the correct shade than you will the foundation. However, they do have the same numbers as the foundation so for example if you are 51 in the foundation then you will be shade 51 in the concealer.
Looking at the foundation and the concealer in the packaging, the concealer looks a tiny be lighter but it might depend on the lighting that you are looking at them in:)

What did I like?
I really love everything about this concealer! It looks so natural, great way of dispensing the product, great coverage and lasts such a long time:) Also the fact that I managed to get this half price is a thumbs up!
Easy to dispense and control the amount of product:)
Application and ease of blending
I mentioned in my review of the foundation that I mix a little bit of the concealer with the foundation and then stipple it on:) I then apply more of the concealer to where I need it:)
I think the ease of blending this is really good! It glides onto the face and aswell as the foundation really does blend like a dream!


On the left is a small swatch and there is some blended on the right but it didn't show up on the picture.

Packaging - 10/10 - More concealers need to have this packaging!
Product - 9.5/10 - Not perfect but still amazing1
Price - 9.5/10 - This is a little pricey between £7 and £8 so I think if you want to try this, try and catch it while it's on an offer.
Would I recommend this? - Yes!! You really need to try this!
Would I repurchase this? - Yes! I really like this concealer and it is probably one of the best I have tried:)

*Disclaimer* - I purchased this concealer with my own money and I am not affiliated with either Boots or Bourjois Cosmetics. I have not been paid to do this review and all opinions are my own.
