Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Review

Covergirl Review

CoverGirl Ready Set Gorgeous – I don’t know about you but Covergirl isn’t one of those brands that I get super excited about. But, lately they’ve had quite a few exciting releases! I actually remember the first time I bought Covergirl. I was 14 or 15 and I remember I bought a blue eye shadow quad…and hit pan. Awesome. Anyhow, this foundation is actually really impressive!

This foundation has a thicker formula so I find the best way to apply this is to place a small amount on the back of my hand and pat it in with my fingertips. I like finish buffing this in with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush or a sponge depending on how I’m feeling that day (or whichever isn’t dirty…the struggle is real).

This foundation doesn’t break me out which is actually surprising since the formula is a bit thicker. I wear shade 120 which is 4 shades up from the lightest shade. It matches my current skin tone very well, although I may need to pick up something lighter in the winter or add a bit of the L’Oreal Light Infusing Primer to lighten this up a bit. Definitely worth a try if you can find a shade that would suit you. I’m very tempted to pick up the matching concealer!

Note: a little of this goes a LONG way! Have you come across any drugstore foundation that you have been loving lately?

      It really is great! I love the finish it has. I’ve heard a lot about the L’Oreal Infallible Matte but I haven’t gotten around to trying it! Is it super matte? I can’t do super duper matte foundations my skin does not agree with them!
