I’ve been reading and watching a lot of reviews on this foundation by Covergirl on numerous beauty blogs and YouTube. There were a lot of mixed reviews on this but the majority of them leaned towards the positive side. When Coles had a 50% off all Covergirl products, I quickly snapped it up so that I too could give it a go.
I must say; this foundation has topped a lot of foundations I’ve tried lately. And that’s saying a lot. 🙂
The packaging is no-nonsense. It comes in a light plastic squeezy tube and the tiny hole dispenses just enough product without creating a mess.
As for the foundation, it has a very light texture and blends on the skin well leaving a matte finish. It starts out with light coverage but as I added another layer, it started to go towards a medium coverage. It didn’t flake on my skin, and even though I added another layer or two over the original layer of foundation, it didn’t look cakey on my skin at all, not even around my nose (that’s where I get the most cakiness).
It doesn’t look that good in the photo, nor does it look that good when you first apply it. Initially, I thought yeah it’s okay, nothing to cry about. But once I’ve set my makeup with a light sweeping of loose powder, it looked pretty good. A couple of hours later, it looked great.
In short, I love this foundation. It looks great on my combination skin and after a couple of hours of having it on, it looks even better. It makes my skin look fresh and slightly satin-y after a few hours. In terms of lasting power, I’d had this on for over 10 hours and there was barely any fading.
Do I recommend this? HECK YEAH. In fact, I’m happy to give this two enthusiastic thumbs up!
Covergirl’s Ready Set Gorgeous Fresh Complexion foundation retails at AU$16.95 for 30ml and is available at leading pharmacies and supermarkets nationwide. Coles do 50% off Covergirl products quite regularly so do keep a lookout for that.
What I like about it: Easy-to-use packaging, lightweight (both the packaging AND the foundation), not greasy, makes my skin look better the longer I wear the foundation, good lasting power. All I need in a foundie, really.
What I do not like about it: Nothing! That’s very rare. 😛
