Bourjois Happy Light Foundation - Review

Hi Beauty Lovers!

It seems that every few months there's a product that people go absolutely crazy for and my bloglovin' feed blows up with reviews, swatches, tutorials, you name it its blogged about, and for me this past few months or so that's been the Bourjois Happy Light foundation.

Usually I wouldn't opt for a light coverage foundation with a none matte finish, but I've read tons of great reviews so I thought I'd give it a whirl.

I bought my product from ASOS, to take advantage of 10% student discount and free delivery, I did have the hard task of colour matching myself, but I got that spot on *victory pat on the back*.

The packaging I'm indifferent to, I neither love it or hate it. Its not the most eye catching product but it doesn't reside in my everyday makeup bag, so that isn't a worry for me.

I do not own a light coverage foundation or a tinted moisturiser, so on days where I need to be in public for literally 2 seconds, I'm faced with the dilemma of applying full coverage foundation or going without. When I started reading reviews about Happy Light and how oil free and light it was, I thought it would be perfect for the aforementioned dilemma.
I find it to be so lightweight that it feels as though I'm wearing nothing at all, I don't even have to powder. It covers only the slightest of imperfections, but I only wear this on days where I'm nipping out and would normally be makeup free, so it doesn't bother me, however if this was my everyday foundation I would have to use half a tube of concealer just to look half descent.
My shade is 'Porcelain', I found the colour match to be absolutely spot on, kudos to Bourjois for making perfect pale shades.

As I said I saved 10% with my student discount card, so I paid £10.80, but it retails at £11.99. It contains the standard 30ml. I think this foundation is over priced but I wont be using it daily so I wont go through it too quickly.

All in all I really like this foundation for what I need it for, however I would never wear this as my daily foundation because the coverage is just too light and sheer.

Let me know if you've tried this foundation and what you think of it?
