 I recently purchased the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel foundation and concealer. They're my new favourite items in my make up bag and I've been wearing them everyday I've worn make up. 
 You can buy them from Boots here for £10.99. It's one of the higher prices for the high street foundations but I'd happily pay much more. The quality is lovely, it's really soft and liquidy. It's not TOO liquidy if you know what I mean! The perfect texture as it glides on beautifully with your fingers or a sponge but I prefer to use my new Real Techniques Core Collection (as reviewed here) buffing brush to apply it. The foundation gives a light coverage but it definitely adds a cover on blemishes but I personally need to use concealer over scars and under my eyes! If it wasn't for spots and dark circles I wouldn't use any! The concealer is also a really good texture. It's thicker than the foundation which is really great. It is creamy and has brilliant coverage. It doesn't feel thick or heavy on my skin and I happily wear it all day. It lasts a long time too. I hate having to touch up my make up throughout the day so this is perfect for me. I apply it under my eyes using the small detailer brush and a Revlon concealer brush for blemishes. I wash the brushes regularly as to avoid infection and just to be clean! I also put the concealer onto the brush rather than use the concealer straight onto my face! I'd like to think it's more hygienic. It's £7.49 from Boots and you can buy it here.  I've had really good comments on my skin recently, that it was "glowing" and general lovely comments from my work friends! They made me blush! 

I use Shade 51 in the foundation and 52 in the concealer. Shade 51 is the palest you can buy I believe and it's the exact shade for me. It's also hypoallergenic which is a plus for someone with sensitive skin! I will upload a picture when the lighting is good! It really looks radiant.
