Wow so this is my first post of the year! Shame on me! lol Anyway lets get right into to it.
I havent worn CoverGirl makeup since probably high school. However I recently saw a couple reviews on CoverGirls new foundation, CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation (what a long foundation name!).
"All-in-one foundation with a long-lasting formula that fuses primer, concealer, and foundation in one easy step! The 3-in-1 formula provides a flawless look that lasts all day long." -CoverGirl website
I had to try this foundation because I read so many awesome things. The color I picked up was in Golden Tan and I put this baby to the test yesterday.
This is my freshly washed face with no eyebrows :(
I threw my eyebrows on and applied the foundation only to one side of my face (my right side) and this pic is with flash.
This is a pic without flash, as you can see its a little darker than my skin tone.This is the foundation applied all over using a beauty blender sponge.
I finished the rest of my makeup and even used the foundation as concealer (pic with flash) it has really great coverage.
Here is a pic without flash.
Here is a pic of the foundation at the end of the night. I had the foundation on from 12pm-10pm. I never set the foundation with any powder because I wanted to see the lasting power. As you can see I am a little bit oily but its not unbearable.
Here is a close up. I have to say this foundation is pretty awesome!
My first impression when I put it on was that I loved it. Then later on when it was setting and I looked in the mirror I was scared because the color changed and I thought I was so orangey and looked like an oompa loompa so I tried to blend it down to my neck because I was in a rush and didn't have time to take it off. However once it really set the color was fine.
I purchased this foundation at Target for about $10. The color selection is (14 shades) however, for women of color the Queen Collection has the same foundation called CoverGirl Queen All Day Flawless 3 in 1 Foundation with an additional 14 shades which means the color range is brown girl friendly as well, which is usually an issue with drug store brands.
I have to say, drug store foundations are not usually my forte but this one may change my mind. What do you think about it? Will you give it a shot?
