Part of the #LikeAGirl campaign, the Beauty United crew got this box of goodies in June. Unfortunately I didn’t get my posts up in time for the giveaway, but I still wanted to share.

What does it mean to be “like a girl”. I didn’t get it too often, but where I did get it a lot was when I was told to sit like a girl. Used to drive me nuts. One of the reasons I hated wearing skirts, as wearing them associated me with being a girl.

Another thing that used to get me…was why can’t you be pretty like a girl. Why oh WHY did people have to say that? I didn’t have girly hair, or wear a lot of makeup in my youth. But so what…right? We shouldn’t box in anyone due to what is this weird perception. In any case, of course now I just love shopping for the perfect MLBB lipsticks, or a great full coverage foundation for oily skin…

Which brings us to the topic today…

CoverGirl’s Ready Set Gorgeous!

Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation, available in 12 shades, comes in a small and neat tube.

The built-in powder system fights against shine, pulling oil and sweat AWAY from your face instead of trapping them under your foundation. Pair with the entire instaGLAM collection for a glam look on the go.

Now that was an interesting read, that it was to pull oil away from the skin! That was what intrigued me when I first received it. I liked that it provides medium coverage, but I can’t say that it is terribly long lasting. On my oily skin, it did okay, but spottage in the t zone was apparent after 4 hours. Not a huge difference, but you could definitely tell as any redness in the area was rather visible.

Ready Set Gorgeous Concealer is available in 6 different shades.

Get insta-gorgeous with Ready Set Gorgeous! The oil-free concealer helps cover up imperfections and dark circles instantly. The lightweight formula blends easily for all day coverage.

The concealer, though not in my favorite dispenser, was actually pretty nice. Easy to blend, not too difficult to work with. For myself, it helped to blur the edges of any discolouring from under eye circles and such. Again, medium coverage, as it didn’t completely erase them.

(Let’s try and ignore the fact that I was doing the pictures for this post VERY late, and thus my eyes had suffered by then T___T It didn’t occur to me at all. I just wanted to try and get the pictures churned out!)
Left has concealer, right doesn’t. You can see that it lessens the look of the darkness, but doesn’t eliminate it.

Concealer on the left, and the foundation on the right. Swatched, and then blended right beside it. Pretty close match on my arm, but much lighter on the face. However, the slight oxidation on my skin corrects that.

Anyway, when they go on sake, you can probably pick then up pretty cheap. There are also coupons that are available, while helps out in price. There is also a compact version which I haven’t tried, but assume very similar. In any case, it might not be a product I’d use in the summer, but I actually have high hopes for it for the fall/cooler weather. Let’s hope I’m right cause I’m back to using it with the cooler weather we’ve been having :)
