Bourjois Mineral Matte Mousse Foundation Review

This is a new blind buy from Ebay on the Bourjois Mineral Matte Mousse Foundation. I have swatches and a review ready. Let's start!
 
Above is the packaging of the foundation. It comes in a plastic jar which is very compact and travel friendly.


This is a swatch. It is soft, smooth and light-medium coverage. The shade that i got (82 Vanille Delicate) is suited for mostly fair to fair-medium skintones or in MAC NC20. It is a bit light for my NC25 skintone but I will have to make do.
It also has a flowery-synthetic smell reminiscent of hairspray which i detest! I prefer makeup to either be pleasant-smelling or with no smell at all.
I suggest this foundation for combination-oily skin because it is matte and a mousse formula which doesn't go well with drier skin types. So it will be a bit tricky.

 
This is me with only the Bourjois Mineral Matte Mousse Foundation on. I used an Ecotools Foundation brush which i got on Ebay for $3. Any soft fluffy brush like a kabuki would be fine.
 
 
 
This is myself with full makeup on including this foundation.

 Overall, pros and cons!
 
PROS:
- compact
-good light-medium everyday coverage
-doesn't break me out
-matte finish
-smooth
 
CONS:
- flakes off after using (very annoying!)
- unpleasant synthetic-floral smell
- not enough coverage so you need at least two layers
-need a shade between 82 and 83

All in all, this is an average foundation for those looking for sheer coverage and matte finish. Good price on ebay available and drugstore item.
