One of the many problems I seem to be having since I started university in Canterbury, though, is that I seem to forget that, once you leave London, it's simply not as easy to restock your favourite products, and, seeing as the local Boots didn't carry my go-to foundation, I found myself in need of something new, and, remembering a review I'd seen on Mel's blog a few weeks ago, I decided Bourjois' latest offering would be the best bet.
Coverage: Although the pigments in the foundation definitely create a much more flawless base than most, the coverage isn't particularly heavy - whilst it does cover light freckles and dark pigmentation under the eyes relatively well, I'd still have to reach for my trusty concealer in order to cover any actual imperfections.
Wear: In my experience, claims of 16-hour wear are never going to be 100% accurate, but this foundation is very durable, and I found myself only needing to 'touch-up' once or twice during the day, which is pretty impressive, for me, at least; I don't have any trouble with it going patchy or looking 'cakey', even after a night out, which is always a bonus!
Bourjois 1. 2. 3. foundation is available from Boots online (here), or in most of their stores for an RRP of £10.99.
