CoverGirl Clean Whipped Cream Foundation
Back in August, I got to attend the #BeautyUnited Launch party, and got a big bag of swag goodies to play with. Today I wanted to share the CoverGirl Clean Whipped Creme Foundation.
I received the colour #320, which is Creamy Natural.
Now this is the first time I have used this type of foundation. Typically I use mineral (Buff’d Cosmetics or EDM), Cream (CoverFx), or liquid (Make Up For Ever). Because of that, I was pretty eager to try this one out.
So what about this product?
It comes in 10 different shades, and priced at about $11CAN (though of course it will vary depending on the store you go to).
COVERGIRL Whipped combines silicone mattifiers with hydrated emulsion to combat the oily and dry areas of combination skin, reducing the appearance of dry skin and shine with an overall smooth matte appearance.

The fact that this is in a pot, might not be for everyone. What I personally liked doing was using a spatula or a brush to dip in to the pot, then apply to the face. Of course if you go the brush route, you need to use a new one each time. Otherwise fingers are your last resort.
What I liked about this was that it did help to neutralize the redness caused by my horrible skin annoyances. You can see how well they filled in and covered my overly congested pores. In addition, upon initial application, my skin looked matte. It felt nice on the skin, and not heavy, which is important as well.
Unfortunately, though it feels nice, it isn’t a product that other oily skinned lovelies might enjoy. Personally I found that it sat on the skin, rather than finding some way to work with the skin. So if I got a little oily…it seem to slide a bit. In addition, I saw shine within an hour. I mean I have oily skin, and I totally embrace that at times, but this one just didn’t seem to agree with me. I would think that those who have a bit drier skin might like it (or those at the other end of the oily spectrum from me :P).
As a side note, I was taking pictures, and turned the lid upside down for the picture up there…and plop…the inner cover fell on to my white backdrop! lol Ah shucks. The inner cover concaves away from the lid, so the glue didn’t manage to adhere to the lid. So you may want to check if yours does that, before doing what I did :P
