This makeup is STUNNING. I am so terrified that it will be discontinued, that I called CoverGirl and begged them to keep it. I suddenly decided to get away from liquid foundations. There aren't too many hard compact ones on the market so I decided to try this. I'd used Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse in ivory and it was/is gorgeous also. The quality is fantastic. But they discontinued it and I cried and complained to them. They said a lot of woman are calling about this so I don't understand why something that sells well and is loved by so many....just disappears off the shelves.
That's when I found myself staring at this CoverGirl. I finally bought the natural ivory. It is drop dead gorgeous. It's what I call hard-soft. So it's not mushy and not a thin, fluffy mousse or like a cushion product. It's velvety smooth and satiny and silky. And if you're feeling a little dry, this hard-soft white cream swirling around is just what you need to smooth out the skin. The coverage is full and perfect. It feels so good to swipe your finger across this foundation; with such an easy glide. The quality is a million dollars.
I tried $38.00 IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Compact. Nice, but nothing to rave about. I'd go back to this CoverGirl product any time, any day. Again, GORGEOUS. The ivory is too light for me and I steer clear of classic ivories because those, traditionally, lean toward orange/yellow/gold undertones. So natural ivory was perfect for me. More of a white/pink undertone. Fantastic coverage, soft, beautiful, you can layer as much and build as much as you want or just go light. When my face is done, it's flawless. I can't recommend this foundation enough. I'm thrilled with it. No caking, no transferring, wears well all day. Smooth, silky, rich. I love waking in the morning and applying it.
