If you read my posts, you’ll know that in my Bye or Try post, I mentioned that I wanted to try Covergirl’s latest foundation release – the Covergirl TruBlend Matte Made Foundation. Yesterday I managed to scoop up my shade (or what I thought was my shade), and was super excited to try it out!
That excitement did not last long, though.
I decided to start out by swatching it on my wrist to see how the colour match was. It looked like a pretty good match to begin with so I was optimistic. (Again, this did not last long). To be honest, at this point I kind of forgot about it and went on with my life of binge watching The Magicians. Then when I was going to bed I decided to check in on my swatch, and it was terrible. It had oxidized so much that it pretty much looked orange. Unfortunately I wasn’t surprised because when I had tried the Healthy Vitalist Elixir foundation it made me look like an Oompa Loompa. When I tried that I didn’t even make it out of the house before I had to take it off because my mom was making fun of my face. Oh well.
Below you can see swatches that clearly show the difference between the wet foundation, and the dry foundation:
The lighting is a little weird, but the wet foundation is actually a really good match to my skin. Clearly that means the dry is not. I haven’t heard any other people say they have this issue, so I don’t know if it’s the combination of the foundation and my skin? I’ve pretty much only read positive reviews so I’m really disappointed that I can’t even use it. I’m assuming that they lightest shade will do the same, and even that will probably be too dark once it oxidizes.
I really wish I could give you guys a good review about it, but I just can’t.
I’ve said before that I’m not a huge fan of Covergirl products, and this just reinforces that though. This is the second foundation that I’ve had this issue with, and I don’t plan on purchasing a third.
If you’ve tried the foundation and had a good result, leave it down below so the rest of us can hear the positives!
Until next time,
