Covergirl Queen 3-in-1 foundation review

I had been hearing a lot about this foundation but couldn’t get my hands on it for a while. I finally got to try it and it was definitely¬†a hunt for this product. At first I was a little apprehensive about purchasing this foundation since I already have Revlon Color stay and the MAC Pro Long wear. I figured it would just be another long wear foundation. I was pleasantly surprised. This foundation was beautiful and it applied and blended like silk. It gave my skin the most beautiful finish and it wasn’t completely matte. It is so velvety on the skin. I was amazed at the finish and the texture. I can’t say anything bad about this foundation. I didn’t even need a powder with it/

It has a lot of claims but the one I disagree with doesn’t apply to the queen collection formula it applies to the formula in the regular line which says that it has a built in concealer. I did have to use a touch of concealer with this but not much. It’s not heavy and it doesn’t have a smell like some long wearing foundations do. I must say that I find myself reaching for this one every day. The color match is awesome I had no problem finding my perfect shade. The best price I found was at Wal-Mart and it was less than ten dollars with a coupon. So if you are wondering about this foundation, I would recommend you give it a try. I have dry skin and it works well on me. My mom has oily skin and it works great on her too. I have also used this on some of my clients and they love it as well. It lasts all day, it’s not heavy and it is buildable and bendable. This one gets two thumbs up for me.

CVS haul and review

CVS has a sale right now on beauty products and I took advantage of the great value. First, the L’oreal HIP products are buy one get one free. I got two creme eyliners in black and eggplant. These creme eyeliners work great and they have excellent staying power. I have also used these as an eyeshadow and they are good crease definers. Covergirl Lip products were also on sale as buy one get one free. I got two Covergirl Outlasts in Plum berry and Buff. The color payoff is medium but the staying power is awsome. It really does last and you get moisture instead of dryness like most other long wearing lip colors. I appreciate this fact and Love it. I also got two glosses. A CG wetslicks in fire fly and a lip gloss in baby girl pink. The shades are sheer but the tint is awesome. They aren’t tacky or stupid sticky. If you have the time try some of these products.¬†

Covergirl cosmetics for me is a staple. It was the first makeup I ever tried like from a teenager. My first foundation and lipstick was from covergirl. My first Mascara was from Maybelline. These prodicts have never steered me wrong in the past and I know I can count on them in a pinch. My purpose in life is to give the women of the world affordable beauty. I want to give all my knowledge and information to the world.
