Assalamualaikum and hello my beautiful ladiessss~~~~

Well, supposedly post malam ni at 9pm but I know you guys have been "anxiously" waiting for my next blogpost sebab dah lama tak update pon so... yeah. So if you've seen my haul recently, ya know lah I just purchased this Bourjois Air Mat Foundation. It is a new product from Bourjois. Dekat website dia pon takde update lagi.

So I swatched it on my arm and it looks like it is a full coverage foundation. Smells quite nice. It's not perfumey, more like a fruity scent but it won't linger on your skin after you apply it.

So on Saturday, I applied it on my face. Forgot to mentioned that I apply it with a flat top brush. First impression, it is more like a medium to full coverage and it is quite matte, like it is not dewy at all. 1 layer is enough but can still see my acne scars. I don't know if it's buildable or not because I was lazy... Will update if it's buildable or not. LOL. When I touch my face after I apply it, there's no foundation transferred to my fingers. Oh yea and it is lightweight. Didn't feel like you're putting on a foundation on your face.

I figured it is a great day to test this product since it is that "time of the month". So I applied it at 3.15pm, habis makeup apa semua at 4.10pm. Hahaha. It looked quite flawless on my skin, but I did put on a bit concealer for more coverage. For the first hour, I really liking how it looks on my skin.

Then after 4 hours, (7.30pm) can see lah my skin a bit oily. Plus I was doing so much things, masak lah mandikan kucing la so that's why muka mcm grease ball. Aku rasa any matte foundation pon aku still oily jugak. Susah betul lah ada oily skin ni. *sad face* But my foundation still looks great, not patchy. Even though muka berminyak but the oil doesn't break down the foundation. Which is great. Hihi.

Tukaq lipstick pulak

After 6 hours (9.30pm), still looks great even though oily. Blotted a bit and foundation still does not break down. Usually after 6 hours memang foundation akan break so... Yeah. That's good.

K tukaq lipstick lg sbb pink sgt

After 8 hours (11.15pm), I blotted earlier and it still looks pretty great. Foundation still does not break down.

After total 10 hours (1.05am), my face still looks good. Even though my blush is already gone but I still look decent. My foundation still does not breaking down.

Final thoughts: I know I am going to love this foundation the second I swatch it. It is a long-wearing and super lightweight foundation. If only I could get my hands on the L'Oreal Infallible Matte Foundation, I would compare them two but I don't have that so that's a bummer. But this foundation stays awesome. It stays flawless on my skin, even though my oils are coming out, but after 10 hours it still won't break down the foundation. I really love it. And today, it does not break me out. If I apply the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum for more than 8 hours, I will break out. But this one, does not do that. So yeah, two thumbs up! I recommend this foundation if you guys need an affordable long wearing foundation.

Oh yea, this foundation retails for RM59 if I'm not mistaken. Kalau beli sekarang dekat Bourjois Sunway Pyramid dapat introductory price for RM50 only. So yeah, pegi beli cepat-cepat ok!

Update 23/10/2015: I have had a few dry patches on my face the other day and sadly this foundation emphasized them. So if you have a really dry skin, I suggest you guys moisturize well dulu. Oh and I am using a new method, I blot my foundation right after I apply em to remove excess moisture/oil from the foundation and with this Bourjois Air Mat, I don't have to blot. So it saves a lot of time there. It is buildable, but you need to blend it using a beauty sponge (Beauty Blender or the RT sponge, any sponges will do). I think this foundation works better with beauty sponges. The finish is so flawless I tell ya.

Rating: ★★★★☆

So yeah. That's it guys. I hope you find this helpful. Thanks for reading! :D
