So that is what the foundation looked like on initial application. If you watched my review on it, then you would know what I think about this foundation however I’ll do a recap for those who havent:

PROs:

+ cheap cheap cheap! At $20 RRP, this is a steal! Compared to the much dearer price of $39 for the Revlon, this literally craps all over revlon for the great quality at such a low price point!
+ Matte (currently a plus for me as my skin has been horrendous – however I feel like its almost a rarity to come across a nice oil-controlling matte foundation at the drugstore!)
+ Amazing blendibility. It’s a much much thinner consistency than the revlon colorstay so I feel like for beginners, this will work to your advantage as it would make it easier to blend out and therefore reduce cake-yness!
+ Pump. nuff said.
+ Good colour selection (available overseas…)
+ Decent longevity. I believe the selling point of this is as a “longwearing” foundation formulation (hence outlast, stay fabulous) and it does do a decent job at staying in place and not disappearing. Mind you in the video I did say I noticed some oilyness happening, but when I actually touched my face i couldnt actually feel any oil! So whether that was just my highlighter, I dont know! But I think the longevity is good as a drugstore longwear formulation, however it certainly does not exceed other higher end brands.

CONs:

– Poor colour selection (in Australia…)
– Can be overly drying for normal/dry skin girls!
– I’ve heard it oxidises (nothing too drastic that I’ve noticed though)
Ridiculously hyped up – but it’s not like I can blame that on the foundation right?

Literally I’m racking my brains out trying to find cons for this foundation and I cant find any! It’s really quite a good great foundation especially for being only $15 AUD from the drugstore! Well done Covergirl for keeping costs low, unlike a certain other braind *coughrevloncough*

Foundation after 8 hours (as if you didnt already have enough pics of my face right? LOL)

I swear to you, it looks sooo oily here but barely any oil transferred! It was crazy weird!


So thats it, no more pictures I swear!! haha. Hope you guys enjoyed that, and if you havent seen the video yet please do check it out. I show you how I put the foundation on and my first impressions!
