Bourjois 123 perfect CC cream and eye cream review

When it comes to high street foundations and concealers it seems Bourjois can do no wrong. Their healthy mix foundation was one of the first I ever brought and to this day it remains a firm favourite. There's now a new foundation on the block, and despite the rather cliched name, Bourjois 123 perfect CC cream may just be another new favourite:

Bourjois 123 perfect CC cream and eye cream

With it's CC cream name and squeeze out tube, you'd be forgiven for thinking it's just another sheer tinted moisturizer. In fact it's more of a light-medium foundation but with a seriously light fluid texture (it reminds me of Chanel vitalumiere aqua). On a day to day basis I simply dot on a small pea sized amount then blend in with my fingers, but for more coverage you could easily build it up with a foundation brush.

Coverage wise, it's very natural - evening out my skintone and drying to a semi matte finish. It really does look like a more radiant evened out version of my natural skin. It's an oil free formula too, so lasts well thoughout the day and despite my naturally oily T-zone I only really need to powder up in the afternoon.

The only thing the foundation won't do is cover up my dark circles, which is where Bourjois 123 perfect CC eye cream comes in. Like the 123 perfect foundation, the CC eye cream is light and fluid in texture, offers 24 hour hydration and SPF 15 protection. Being a light concealer it won't completely mask heavy duty dark circles, but if you're after something that's brightening and won't settle into any fine lines, then this would be well worth a try. 

Overall, a really lovely duo of bases. I'm still amazed at how good the CC cream is at brightening and evening up my skintone, especially when you consider how light it is. Definitely one to check out if you hate the traditional heavy feel of foundations or if you want something lighter going into Spring.

Have you tried any of the Bourjois bases? What's your favourite foundation and concealer?
