Covergirl has recently jumped on the multi benefit face product band wagon but instead of a BB cream they released a "3 in 1" foundation. The foundation is supposed to wipe out a couple steps in your morning routine. The claim is that it is a foundation, primer, concealer, and sunscreen all in one.
Okay let's talk about the packaging. I like that covergirl improved the packaging this time around. If you have every used any of the Covergirl foundation in the past it came in sort of a triangle shaped bottle with a twist off cap. I loathed that packaging. You had to try and dump out just the right amount on to the back of your hand. I can't tell you how many times I poured to much or knocked the bottle over! This new packaging gives you a pump so you get just the right amount that comes out. I usually have to do about 1.5 pumps on the back of my hand to do my whole face but that is because I also blend it way down on to my neck. The display has your average variety of shades. I picked the lightest one Classic Ivory since I am fair skinned!
As you can see the coverage is pretty heavy. I am going to go back and see if I can grab the next shade darker because this shade is a bit too light and makes me look a little washed out and ghosty. I can make it work with bronzer and blush but sometimes I just don't want to do all that. As far as coverage goes this is a full coverage foundation for me. It really makes you look flawless. It worked well to cover all my blemishes up and even helped with the dark circles under my eyes. I wouldn't use this for everyday in my case because I don't need a full coverage foundation all the time. Since I usually wear a tinted moisturizer or a BB cream this felt a little heavy on my face. It didn't make my face slick or anything like that it just felt like I had foundation all over my face. If you like a full coverage though this is great.
I do like that it has SPF in it. I am a huge sunscreen advocate. I wear sunscreen or products with sunscreen all year round so I like that they threw that in there.
As far as longevity I felt that this lasted a good long while. I have been wearing it everyday for over a week now and I think it does a really good job at staying put. I do recommend setting it with a powder. I work ten hour shifts and it stays put for those. It didn't leave my skin feeling greasy like some of the other Covergirl products do either. Like I said I think this shade is too light because it did make me appear a bit washed out.
I think for the $9 price tag this is a great product. I think foundation has come leaps and bounds from Covergirls usual face products. I did find that I was able to cut out a lot of steps with this and I think it is a great product. I even think it may be just as good as my Revlon Colorstay!
