Hey guys! Happy Happy Happy Sunday to ya!
Today's post is going to be about Covergirl's Whipped Creme Foundation. I was sent this product for review and was so excited to try it out because I have never tried anything like it before. It is a mousse foundation which is definitely stepping out of my comfort zone. I have always tried to stay away from mousse consistency foundations because I felt like it would make my oily skin an even oilier hot mess! But I decided to give it a whirl and I was actually pretty shocked that it wasn't as bad as I thought.
What they say:
Our new lightweight whipped creme foundation gives your skin a boost of moisture without the greasy, shiny finish. You’ll love the dreamy, 100% breathable formula that leaves your skin looking smooth, natural, and matte. Available in 10 shades to match your skin tone.
My initial first thought of this foundation was how smooth and easy it was to apply. I tried using both my fingers and a foundation brush.. I ended up liking using my fingers better. It does feel very lightweight and can definitely be buildable. I would say it is more light to medium coverage. A little definitely goes a long way with this foundation. I accidentally put way too much on the first time and had to start all over, so I learned my lesson rather quickly. It made my skin feel very silky.
I didn't like the lasting power of this foundation. After about 4 hours, it was like I was not wearing any foundation at all. I was in shock! I didn't know if it was just because of my oily skin that made the foundation completely disappear ..so I looked online to see if others were having the same problem as I was or if it was just me..turns out I wasn't the only one. A lot of others were complaining about the lasting problems.
So overall, trying a mousse foundation wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I just wish this would have had longer lasting power.
What do you think about mousse foundations?
