I’ve had quite a few requests to share my thoughts on the Bourjois Air Mat Foundation.
It’s a fairly new release here in Australia and I got mine from priceline.com.au ($27) or you can also purchase from asos.com ($22).
You can watch my full review here:
I believe there’s 6 shades available in Australia and it’s 30ml.
I’m in Beige but I also got Light Beige for the cooler months.
What it says:
“As light as air, the formula glides onto the skin for perfect coverage & a flawless complexion. Enriched with mattifying micronized powders, it eliminates shine with no mask effect.”
Tested by 31 women: 87% agree that the foundation erases imperfections and makes your skin look beautiful, 84% thought they achieved a matte complexion that felt comfortable and 81% thought that Air Mat allowed their skin to breathe.
And what I thought was really interesting is that there are silica beads in the formula that absorb excess sebum with no mask effect.
Now, I’m definitely a glowing, radiant complexion kinda girl but I really wanted to try this foundation, firstly because I’m a huge fan of Bourjois in general and secondly because it says that it’s light on the skin, and smoothes texture without looking cakey.
And I can report back to say that I’m a fan!! This is as matte as I will go but I’m really enjoying this foundation during summer. It keeps my makeup looking fab throughout the day and doesn’t feel heavy or mask like on my skin.
It’s a medium to full coverage on me, although I don’t find that it’s build able. One application has been fine for me though.
I apply it with my Furless CB2 Brush and then go over it with my damp beauty blender.
It has a yellow undertone and is SPF10.
And it’s made in France.

All in all I’m really liking the Bourjois Air Mat Foundation. I was a skeptic at first, with it being matte, but it’s become a go-to foundation for me.
Hope this review was helpful, let me know if you’ve tried it as well 🙂
Have a great day,
