One of my favourite drugstore brands is coming out with some new face products.
It was love at first sight when CoverGirl came out with their TruBlend Matte Made foundation last year (I even went to their Canadian launch party in Toronto!). The matte full-coverage foundation offers up an impressive 40 shades, making it possible to find your perfect match, no matter the skin tone. Although they had the TruBlend It’s Lit Concealer to go with it, the makeup brand recently came out with another concealer this month which gives you full coverage for even the most darkest circles and blemishes.
CoverGirl TruBlend Undercover Concealer (C$10.99) comes in an impressive 30 shades to match 99 per cent of skin tones and is geared to conceal, shape, and brighten the skin. It covers blemishes, dark circles, redness, and more thanks to it’s full-coverage formula. It also doesn’t crease and lasts on your face all day (and trust me, I put it to the test last Sunday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.).
At first glance, this concealer looks a lot like the cult-favourite Tarte Shape Tape. It’s a thicker container and has a very similar doe foot applicator that allows you to apply the product generously to the skin. I would say this concealer is full coverage but I have other ones that are definitely more full (I tend to find the thicker the concealer, the more true full coverage it is). For C$11 though, you can’t beat that price and this stuff does a heck of a great job covering up anything that needs some camouflaging.
For under the makeup, CoverGirl will be releasing two new formulas to its Base Business Primer line. Already available in Skin Smoothing, Pore Minimizing, and Illuminating, brand-new to family is Mattifying and Hydrating, both of which will be available in June 2019 (SRP C$14.99).
The Mattifying Base Business Primer contains kaolin clay to help absorb oils and control shine. This primer is great for oily skin since it will help tame down any oil on the face and leave your face matte as a base for your foundation.
Also new is the Hydrating Base Business Primer, which contains coconut water to help moisturize dry skin. Both primers are lightweight in texture and glide on the skin smoothly. I also want to note that unlike their predecessors, they are both white in colour and then dry down clear (the other ones also dried clear but acted as a colour corrector as well).
Finally, to finish up the face, take a look at their new TruBlend Loose Powders (SRP C$14.99) also to be released in June 2019, which is an ultra-fine powder with a mattifying finish. These powders, available in seven shades including banana and translucent, are very lightweight on the skin and help to set makeup.
CoverGirl sent over both the banana and translucent shades to try out with the other new face products and altogether, everything worked amazing with each other. The open up to a sifter packaging and it also includes a little pouf to go with it. I didn’t actually use the pouf, but instead dumped some of the product into the lid and then used my sponge to help bake my makeup.
As you can see in the photo above, my makeup looks flawless and my skin is matte and powerless. Discoloration, redness, you name it is all gone and best of all, this makeup look lasted alllllll day.
I was already a huge fan of the TruBlend Matte Made and with these new face products, it makes it super easy to create a flawless face on a total budget. Definitely take a look for these products next month in drugstores since I know you’ll love them as much as I do.
Are you a fan of CoverGirl? What are you most excited to try out?
