I was recently watching one of my favorite YouTube beauty guru’s review of the latest CoverGirl products.
I had to try them myself. So off I went to Walgreen’s and stocked up.
This recent collection is a big campaign with CoverGirl cover girl, Katy Perry. I definitely think it is geared for a young audience since it claims to keep you looking fabulous and photo ready.
Think “selfie”. If you’re going to Instagram yourself, might as well look Instaglam. Get it?
I tried 3 products. Well, two were the same. I wasn’t sure of the foundation color, whether it was going to be too orangey or too light. So I bought 120 and 205.
The 120 is too light. And don’t be fooled. It looks dark in the tube. The 205 is perfect for my light/medium complexion.
I swatched a little on my cheek in the car, and was not pleased.
But then, I applied it at home over a primer, and I couldn’t believe how well it covered and blended. It didn’t settle in my pores or lines. It seemed to have a smooth velvety finish.
The powder was the other product I tried. It claims to be a foundation powder. I didn’t use it alone as foundation, but instead used it to set the liquid foundation. I tried the light/medium #205 in this product and it seemed perfect.
The compact seems a little chintsy plastic. But hey- it’s less than $10. I liked the way it set the makeup and even the touch-ups during the day did not seem cakey or chalky.
Other items in the collection I didn’t try are the concealer and the lip gloss.
The products I did try, I give a thumbs up. All claim to be oil free and suitable for sensitive skin.
I had a hard time finding these online. But they were at my local Walgreens. Not sure if they’ve hit Target or Ulta stores yet.
Let me know if you want me to review any other products out there!
