Hi Everyone! So this is a new series that I wanted to start on my blog. I wanted to turn my love for shopping for makeup into benefiting you; my readers. Many of us are always on the hunt for the perfect products for our skin so on my hunt, I want to share with you products that are worth the money or products that are a just a waste.
So for my first review, I wanted to start off with a brand new foundation from Cover Girl. It’s from their Clean line, and it’s their whipped foundation.
Does it have a scent?
What is the consistency like?
This foundation definitely reminds of Maybelline’s Dream Mouse. The formula is a lot more lighter that that foundation, but it does have the consistency of a light mousse.
How does it feel on the skin?
This foundation feels satiny on the skin. It feels smooth and silky. I have dry skin so I like the way it feels on my skin. It’s also light-weight and it does not feel heavy on the skin.
How does it look the skin?
When I first applied this to my skin, it seemed as though I had gotten the wrong color. It was way too light for my skin tone. I continued to buff it in with my blending brush and it did blend pretty well. Key note: It does take a minute for this to blend well onto your skin. Also, once blended I found that it looked powdery so you have to spray your skin with setting spray to alleviate that unwanted look.
Oily/ Dry/ Normal Skin?
This foundation is only great for Dry Skin and Normal Skin. I say this because the satiny feel of this foundation can feel a bit oily on an oily skin type. It may feel like this foundation will not last as long because of the two similar consistencies together; oily skin and “oily” foundation.
What is the staying power and coverage like?
I did not set my foundation with powder, but I did set it with Urban Decay’s All Night Setting Spray. This foundation only lasted only 7 hours before I started to see my blemishes and things I was trying to cover with this foundation. And the coverage of this foundation is definitely a medium coverage foundation.
