COVERGIRL Foundation Review


here is a beauty blog back track i wrote for kiki creates:

a few weeks back i received these products and reviewed the mascara and the lipstick for you. both products were great and i would recommend them. i put off my review of the foundations until i could give them some proper time to decide if i could really recommend them based on their performance.

COVERGIRL and Olay have teamed up to create a makeup with anti-aging properties. the idea is that you are treating your skin and applying your makeup, all in one step. as with any woman, my time is precious when it comes to getting ready in the mornings. if there is a time saving step, i am ALL OVER it. i gave myself a good month with this product to see if i could notice any difference in the health of my skin. i am here to report that while my skin seemed well moisturized, i didn't notice any other effects.

as a foundation, i would recommend it. i am completely and utterly in love with my Make Up For Ever HD foundation, but at $40 a bottle (yikes!) it can get a little spendy.



one of my favorite "makeup tricks" is to invest in a lower cost foundation that works well, and to use that on a daily basis for my casual, errand filled days. i want to look good, but i don't need the  coverage of the MUFE foundation, as well as the cost.  COVERGIRL is a good solution to that problem. it is a foundation that works fairly well, stays put, and allows me to stretch my liquid gold foundation for special occasions, date nights, working with clients, etc.

so if you are in the market for a reasonably priced foundation ($12 a bottle) this would be a good one to try.

ps. between the liquid pump and the cream solid, i prefer the cream solid. the sponge applicator makes for smooth application and the color is a little more natural looking.
