COVERGIRL Trublend Collection | 2019

Wednesday, October 2, 2019

 We all grew up loving on our flaky mascara and "coverup" that was six shades too dark for our skin tone. Since I started actually wearing more than that, the makeup game has changed COMPLETELY. Makeup brands are popping up daily, and there are so many launches its getting a bit overwhelming for the average consumer. For today's post, I wanted to bring it back to 2009, and spend some quality time with my first love.... drugstore makeup!

I received a package full of COVERGIRL goodies complimentary, so I could put them to the test for you guys. The package included:

+ Undercover Concealer (NEW!)
+ Base Business Primer
+Loose Mineral Powder
+ Hyper Glow Super Stunner Highlighter (NEW!)

Shade "Pearl Crush"

The first thing I noticed when applying this highlight is how finely milled it is. It glided onto the skin beautifully, and gave a lovely sheen where added. I would say that when used sparingly it gives a dewy glow, but if over applied it could look a bit too icy. It is the perfect mixture of rose gold, and pearl and I would recommend to anyone with a light skintone.

This moisturizing skin primer is my favorite product I received, hands down. It came in perfect timing as it is starting to get dry and cold in Minnesota. I love layering this over top of my moisturizer for added hydration. It comes out of the tube white, but does not leave a white cast on my skin once rubbed in. It smells amazing, and it leaves my skin super plump and ready for makeup!

The concealer exceeded my expectations. This new formula reminds me so much of a hybrid dupe of the beloved Tarte Shape Tape + Too Faced Multi Sculpting Concealer. It covers as well as Shape Tape, but is nice and moisturizing like Too Faced. The applicator made it easy to apply where needed. The only thing I felt needed to mention, is that it dries super quickly. If not blended immediately, it is hard to get even coverage as it stays in place. 

 I loved that this powder was also finely milled, and it made my skin look airbrushed.
B U T....huge downside is the white cast it gives off in flash photography. That alone makes it a no for me! If covergirl were to fix that, I would 100% recommend this a great drugstore alternative.

As always, thanks for reading!
