I recently discovered this product by
hearing the buzz in the makeup community.
So I thought why not, give it a try.
Let me just say…..the drugstore brands have really changed their
formulas and are now truly competing with the higher brands out there. Don’t get me wrong, I love a high end quality
type foundation, but picking up a drugstore brand for just a quick every day
look is not a shabby idea (plus. And
that’s what I’ve been using the Covergirl foundation for, is just during the
week when I’m on the go and wearing a simple look.
The in’s and out’s
·It says 3-1, but it’s truly not that –
I’d say 2-1. Yes you don’t need a primer
really, and yes it does cover. But does
it cover enough where you need no concealer – WRONG! You do need a concealer if you really want
those dark circles concealed.
·It doesn’t oxidize and the color is
about spot on to match my skin tone
·I find using a buffing brush gives
you a better finish
·I have normal/oily skin and I set the
foundation using minimal translucent powder
·It lasts roughly 10-12 hours
·It comes in a PUMP!! J
·The color range isn’t that wide for
the warmer/darker skin tones (although I recently heard there’s a new range
called the Queen collection that offers more colors for dark skin, however it’s
not available in my local drugstore so I can’t give my opinion on those
·Consistency is a bit on the thicker
side (but it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin)
·For sensitive skin, I hear it can
tend to lead to a few breakouts, so use accordingly. (I haven’t broken out, but my friend has –
she said after 2 weeks of using the foundation she noticed tiny bumps
I hope that you enjoyed reading my
review…..I’ll have more products to share that I either been loving, hating, or
newly discovered – so stay tuned!
Have a great day. J xo

Since we’re a few days stepping into the Spring
season, I thought I’d share with you my favorite lip color combo. I pair MAC lipstick in Vegas Volt with YSL
lipgloss in #2 Golden Praline. You can never go wrong with a pop of color to brighten
your face...plus I'm obsessed with coral!

post more frequently on both of those social network sites when I'm on the go.

have discovered while out and about.
I took a very long break, and I’m sorry for being
gone. I have been very busy with work
and my personal life the past few months, and posting my updates sorta took the
back burner. BUT no more excuses this
year – it’s a clean fresh slate and why not get back on track on the first day
of Spring. J
So with that said……since it’s officially Spring
Season, what is one of your favorite makeup
