New Release: Bourjois Air Mat Foundation Review | Foundation Friday #4

Hearing that there is a new foundation release, I am like a kid in a candy store. Foundations are my guilty pleasure. I own around 30-35 now, which I know is obsessive.

Hi, I’m Emma, and I’m a Foundation Addict! 

I have tried the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, but it isn’t enough coverage for me and doesn’t work with my oily skin. As soon as I heard Bourjois were bringing out a fuller coverage mat foundation, I was so excited. 


As soon as this was released, I ordered it straight away. The Bourjois Air Mat Foundation comes in a squeezy plastic tube which is very different to all the other foundations they have as they all come in bottles with pumps. The packaging is simple, which I like, and easy to use. I squeezed a small amount and applied it to my face using my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. I was amazed at how one layer gave me a full coverage look. Even though it is full coverage, it doesn’t feel heavy and doesn’t go cakey. I always moisturise well and apply a primer that stops full coverage foundations from going cakey. 


I have tried many foundations, but this one has impressed me. I can’t believe how flawless it looks. It has a mat finish, which is pretty evident in the name, but it doesn’t feel drying at all even though it’s a mat. I applied my MAC Powder over the top and left it all day without touching up. 8 am – 8 pm I didn’t touch up or anything, and I have to say the results were pretty incredible. My skin still looked flawless, with no shine or anything! The only thing I noticed was that it started to wear away on my chin, but I have extra oily skin, so this is unbelievable for me. I have found my new holy grail foundation! I honestly cannot rave about this more!

You can buy the Bourjois Air Mat Foundation online for £9.99 or in Boots and Superdrug stores.
