Cover Girl Clean Makeup Foundation, Put Your Best Face Forward.
blends evenly, great coverage, last the duration of the day
The Bottom Line:
It covers up my blemishes and other imperfections, what else could a girl ask for in a foundation?
I started using the foundation in the Cover Girl Clean Makeup line when I was a junior in high school. It wasn't until my junior year I started having problem skin, you know that dreaded word everyone hates--pimples and I needed something to make them less noticeable throughout the day. A friend of mine told me she used Cover Girl Clean Makeup and it actually helped dry out her acne.
So, off to the store I went to buy my ticket to acne free skin and a way to make my face more presentable to the world. Ok, so I only had 2 or 3 pimples but I was a teenager and hated them. Let me tell you Cover Girl?s foundation actually did help dry out my pimples and help prevent new ones from surfacing. This is because of the Noxzema ingredients added into the foundation that keeps your face pimple free. All without drying out my face and giving me that dry scaly look after I removed my makeup at night.
Cover Girl Clean Makeup Foundation comes in 14 different colors to meet any complexion and skin type: cool colors-natural ivory, medium light, warm beige, and creamy beige. From the warm colors you can choose from classic ivory, buff beige, soft honey and classic tan. From the neutral colors you can choose from ivory, creamy natural, classic beige, natural beige, tawny, toasted almond and soft sable.
Cover Girl Clean Makeup Foundation is a silky, smooth liquid that comes in a 1 fluid ounce clear glass bottle. It has a white twist-off lid with the letters CG on the top of the lid. I use Cover Girl?s foundation everyday and the 1 fluid ounce bottle does go along way. It doesn?t take much foundation to cover your face for a natural oil free look.
Cover Girl Clean Makeup is dermatologist tested and won?t clog your pores. It?s also available in fragrance-free and original formulas. So if you tend to have sensitive skin you may want to opt for the fragrance-free formula. I use the original formula myself and I have sensitive skin and the fragrance doesn?t bother me and break my face out. The fragrance formula doesn?t have a strong scent to it, yet a pleasant clean, fresh Noxzema smell to it.

Applying Cover Girl Clean Makeup:
To apply Cover Girl Clean Makeup foundation shake well before each use. I usually use my fingers, even though the beautician side of me knows it?s wrong and unsanitary (yep, I worked in a salon for 3 years). I dab a few dots of foundation on my face a blend it in. The silky smooth liquid goes on evenly without leaving streaks or blotches, leaving you with a natural looking face all day long. The foundation is so light you can?t even tell you have it on and best of all either can other people, even your significant other when they lean in for a kiss. Cover Girl Foundation also doesn?t come off on your clothes.
The proper and sanitary way to apply foundation is to put a dot on your forehead, cheeks and chin then with a dampen makeup sponge blend the foundation evenly. You should use a makeup sponge instead of your fingertips because you are re-depositing oil back on your face from your fingertips. Also you are adding oil to your foundation every time you go back for more. This is even more unsanitary if more then one person uses the foundation. If more coverage is needed wait for the first coat dry and apply more and blend evenly.
I like that Cover Girl Clean Makeup makes you face look natural and even outs those blotches of redness, pimples, uneven skin tones. If you have oily skin this really helps soak it up and keeps your face oil free all day. It also gives your face moisture so it helps keep your face soft and smooth feeling all day. The foundation stays put all day long and doesn?t fade or look ?cakey? as the day wears on. I?ve never had to reapply during the day and it still looked like I just applied it. At the end of the day Cover Girl?s foundation washes off easily and doesn?t leave an oily residue behind.
You can buy Cover Girl Clean Makeup Foundation at almost any drug store (Rite-Aid, CVS) at any grocery store (Foodtown, Krogers, Meijer's) or department stores (K-mart, Ames). Prices will vary from store to store, drug stores being that highest here and department stores being the lowest.
I would recommend Cover Girl Clean Makeup to any woman (young and old alike) who wants a foundation that goes on easily and blends naturally every time. Also for ones who like to wear foundation but don?t want to know it?s there. It?s so light you?ll forget you have it on. Cover Girl Clean Makeup is also inexpensive ($3.99) and one bottle lasts a long time. So if you want a foundation that makes your skin look natural and won?t clog your pores Cover Girl Clean Makeup is for you.
