Good Afternoon Makeup Lovers! We all have makeup brands that we love so much that we decided to have every single one of their products. My favorite drugstore brand is Covergirl. I love the brand so much. I decided that I would look at two of their foundations that are very similar. I have had mixed reviews about both and love each one in a different way. They are both matte foundations, but each provide different coverage. Continue reading to find out more about these Covergirl foundations!
Covergirl Clean Matte-I was sent this foundation with the matching powder to try out. I made an entire post about the products HERE. The Clean Matte Collection is their most up to date foundation. They are actually getting ready to release a new collection, however, The Clean Matte is the newest. I was hesitant at first about trying the product. Everything about the foundation reminded me about the Ready Set Gorgeous Line. When I first tried this product, I used a dap beauty blender. There was no coverage what so ever and I felt like nothing was on my face. However, I switched to my buffing brush from real techniques and could instantly tell a difference. I am so surprised about how much I love this!! It gives me enough coverage and looks so natural. There is 7 colors to choose from and I am in the color Medium/Deep. The color is a little bit light on me but not too much. After I do a full face you can hardly tell that it is too light. I’m in love with this foundation and consider it to be among the best matte drugstore products.
Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous-I did a blog post on this foundation a while ago. It was actually one of my first blog post ever. You can find it HERE. When this hit the market, it was a huge deal. I heard more about this product than I heard about the Clean Matte. It took me forever to find this product because it was always gone everywhere I went. When I did eventually get it, I was so disappointed. When swatched on my hand it seems very light, however, my face is way lighter than my hand. Covergirl promises the foundation is oil free, won’t clog pores, last all day, is suitable for sensitive skin, and provides medium coverage. I agree that the foundation does seem to be oil free, which is always good in a foundation. However, the coverage is definitely light not medium. Which is a little sad because I was hoping for this to either be medium or full coverage. Years later, I have recently bought the foundation back into my routine. I hate wasting money & product so I decided to find a way for it to work. Since the foundation was a little too light, I decided to mix it with the MAC Pro Longwear concealer. I get a perfect color with mixing the too. The coverage is very nice and I love this product!
