Review: Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation

Once again, I've fallen victim to "clever" advertisement! Basically..., I finally caved, and bought the new Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation. Seeing that I love the Covergirl Outlast 3 in 1 Foundation so much I thought that it would be worth a shot.

You should know:
  • It's oil-free.
  • Comes in about twelve shades.

Its claims: This liquid foundation's oil-free formula provides medium coverage to even skin tone and cover imperfections. The result is a flawless, natural look that lasts all day.

  • It's lightweight.
  • It's blendable.
  • Only oxidizes a bit (most foundations oxidize on me because of my oily skin).
  • The price is great (under $10).

    • It has light to medium coverage (I prefer a bit more coverage).
    • May irritate sensitive skin.
    • Does not stay matte for more than two hours.
    • Does not set well into skin, giving it a "cakey" appearance. 

    Even after two weeks, I'm not entirely sure how I feel about this foundation... As I mentioned, it seem like the product just sits, almost like a film, on top of the skin. At first I thought that it might be the primer I was using underneath it (Hourglass Veil Mineral). But, when I tried it without the primer I got the same effect, except that it looked "oily" within an hour. It seems like this foundation is not ideal for oily skin, and is better suited for drier complexions.

    However, I recently watched gossmakeupartist's latest video where he mentions that applying rose water after a powder product will result in a natural finish (check the video out here). Covergirl's website does mention that this foundation has a "built-in powder system"; so maybe this is what's causing the problem. I guess I'll try this "rose water method" out for myself and let you know!

    Have you tried the new Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation? If so let me know down below!

    Thank you for stopping by!

    Until next time!
