Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation Review

foundation
Paid $6.99 from Rexall Pharmaplus Reg Price is $11.99

I had picked this up about a month ago and unfortunately couldn’t try it out as much as I had wanted because I bought a shade that was slightly darker then I could pull off. However, I have tried it enough that I have formulated my thoughts on it.

Lets start with a foundation and primer only before and after.

Before is completely bare skin. After is foundation only, one layer, no concealer. I applied using my F80 brush from Sigma.

Foundationbefore and afterThis is after no wear at all and strictly to show coverage. It definitely covers well, as you can see I have a lot of redness and discolouration to deal with and I prefer a medium to full coverage foundation.

Claims: One simple step for a flawless natural look, that lasts all day. The formula blends easily to even skin tone and reduce shine all day. | Oil Free | Won’t clog pores | Suitable for sensitive skin | Lasts all day

Formulation: I want to call this a paste, it also smells like paste which isn’t helping its case. It is not runny like most of the foundations I use on the regular, and I have to use more than I normally would to cover my whole face. It is so thick that if you put it on your hand and turn your hand, it won’t run anywhere, just sticks there. I also noticed huge amounts of oxidization after it had dried on my hand for a few hours. I don’t seem to have that problem when it is on my face though. Picture on the right is the oxidization.

Staying power: This will definitely last all day, and for the first time ever with a foundation it looks terrible when first applied and by the end of the day will look FLAWLESS. I know thats great if you have long days, but I don’t like starting my day looking  cakey. It wears well, as in won’t slip and slide around and won’t wear off in spots around the nose and mouth which is where I normally have staying power issues. I have dryness in some areas of my face and I feel like this is one of the main reasons I don’t like it. It is just too heavy for me alone, and I do still need to set it with a powder.

Overall I am not a fan of this foundation and will not be repurchasing.

      1. Hmm. Well if you are looking for something really full coverage. That stuff really does the trick I like it more than the ready set foundation! I don’t really even like cover girl and those are the only two things I like actually.
