You may have seen the Bourjois stands in select Shoppers Drug Mart stores but they are missing one of their best selling products: Healthy Mix foundation. Don't be fooled by the "Healthy Mix Serum Foundation", it isn't the same product and in my opinion is no where comparable. It is also 3 times the price! The colours are exactly the same though so you can go instore to find your shade then order the original Healthy Mix online.
I had heard a lot about this from European blogs and when I saw it on sale for very cheap online last year I ordered it on a whim. As I mentioned before I went to the U.K. last year and did a huge beauty product haul and I bought a few bottles of this foundation. I'm pretty sure (?) that it's available in most European countries and Australia & NZ (from what I've read online).

There are many pros of this foundation and they are:
*Can be applied with fingers, sponges, or a foundation brush
*Doesn't irritate my skin or break me out
*Lasts all day (even in extreme humidity)
*Looks like real skin and is never cakey
*Gives skin a dewy glow
*Very affordable ($11-15CAD online)
*Only availble online in 2 places (eBay and EChemist)
*Limited shade range for darker skin tones
Note: If you're wary of ordering a foundation online I'd also recommend the Bourjois 10 Hour Sleep Effect foundation but I only don't use it anymore because it's $26CAD (at Shoppers Drug Mart). It has a similar finish and staying power.
