Today I'm going to do a review on a foundation I've been testing out for the past couple months. From the title you can already guess that this review is going to be on the COVER GIRL Ready Set Gorgeous Liquid foundation. I got this foundation at my local target for $6.99 in the colour 105. The first thing I noticed when purhasing this foundation is that it has the same amount of product as the COVER GIRL 3 in 1 Stay Fabulous Liquid Foundation (One of my absolute favourites). Being significantly less expensive than the 3 in 1 Stay Fabulous foundation I was excited to try it out.
The packaging of this foundation is great because it is in a squeeze tube, which makes it a lot more hygienic. This also makes it a lot easier to squeeze out the exact amount of product you would like to use, therefore significantly decreasing the amount of wasted product.
The foundation itself has a very liquidity consistency and feels very light on the skin. I like to apply this wih my fingers or damp beauty sponge. It sets quickly and gives a light coverage. It can however, build up to a medium coverage without looking cakey. This foundation is great for people who want something to just even out their complexion and conceal minor blemishes. This product is also great for oily skin because It's oil free, dries matte and leaves such a soft finish. But if you're one to have your oils seep through throughout the day then of course pair this foundation with a primer and powder. I would say this is the best natural, "my skin but better" drugstore foundation I have ever tried. It also does not transfer onto clothing which is always a plus.
All in all, this is the perfect every day foundation and I would reccomend this product to somebody who wants something super low maintenance and natural. It is also the perfect foundation for people who are new to makeup!
The only disappointing thing about this foundation is that the inside of the cap can get quite messy from the foundation if you're not careful. The best way to prevent this from happening is just to simply wipe off the excess foundation surrounding the tip of the tube after each use.
Hopefully this review helped you guys decide if you want to buy this foundation or not!
Until next time,
