Review: Bourjois 10 Hour Sleep Effect :)

Hello. Im back! With a review I might add :). Step up: Bourjois 10 Hour Sleep Effect foundation. Firstly, the colour. I have 'Abricote Clair 71' and it's perfect! I have naturally very pale skin and this suits it down to the ground. I was very impressed as not many brands tend to have a good shade selection. Especially in the drugstore/chemists.  This it what it claims to do:

''This Anti-fatigue foundation conceals all signs of fatigue thanks to a formula enriched with a high concentration of vitamins E, F, B5 and minerals.
Dark circles, skin imperfections and a dull complexion are replaced with an even and rested complexion.Light and oil-free formula.''
When I pumped it out of the bottle the first thing I was met with was a lovely smell. This foundation is promoted with vitamins and minerals so I was expecting a chemical smell. I was pleasantly surprised. 

The foundation itself has quite a watery consistency but that gives you plenty of time to blend and work with it. The packaging is made of plastic but it's quite sturdy. One thing I did notice is that the lid can come off easily. And if this happened to be in your bag it could spill. It has a sheer coverage.It fells quite light on the skin and it isn't cakey atall. Once applied it looks like your skin. It has a satin finish but it isn't shiny . It is sort of matte with a luminous highlight. It lasts a good 8 hours on my skin but I did notice after about 6 I started to get oily and felt the need to powder. 

I get up at 7 o clock in the morning and this is why I chose this foundation. As it promotes a sleep effect(much needed in my case). I applied it and I did notice that my skin did look a bit brighter (as it looks like death in the morning). 

Overall, I really like this foundation and I would reccomend it. It seems as it will be a re-purchase for me also. 


  1. I've never tried this foundation before, but I am intrigued. I'm pale as well so it;s always nice when I can get a shade to match my skin.

  3. I'm pale too, and also looking for a new foundation so I'm browsing all the revies I can get my beady little eyes on! Thankyou for this, I'll definitely consider it :) x
