Foundations that change colour
« on: February 20, 2017, 10:45:26 AM »
Why is it that foundation always changes colour (or is it just my foundation?). I was so pleased with my last purchase, Bourjois Healthy Mix. The texture was perfect and the colour, Beige Foncé, was an excellent match…but now it has gone orangey and I don’t like it one bit. Bourjois is supposed to be owned by Chanel; the products are made in the same factory. But I have not had it very long and it has definitely changed. I am going away tomorrow and I would like to take a foundation. Even if I don’t wear a lot of make-up during the day, I like to dress up in the evening. What shall I do? Get another cheap foundation or go for something more ‘high-end’? Would it make a difference? I had planned not to go near the duty-free at the airport, but…

This is probably too late for your trip but...

Is your foundation turning in the bottle? Or is it turning after you've applied it? If the former, then it's bad foundation. If the latter, perhaps you could try a primer to provide a buffer between your skin and its chemistry and the foundation.

Hope you have a wonderful time!
