Review: CoverGirl TruBlend FixStick & Foundation

CoverGirl TruBlend FixStick & Foundation

CoverGirl TruBlend FixStick: This concealer crayon has a thicker consistency that provides medium/full coverage and has a brightening effect to cancel out discoloration. My shade (fair) was a little too light to spot conceal blemishes, but worked well to brighten and conceal my undereye area and anywhere else I develop redness, like around my nostrils and chin. Worn unset, it stayed in place nicely with minimal weathering at the 8 hour mark. Despite the thicker consistency, it can easily be layered and touched up throughout the day without appearing caky. Overall, it provides a convenient application with great coverage and lasting power for just $7.99. The only downsides I found were the lack of shade range and distinct "makeup" smell it had - similar to an old foundation.

CoverGirl TruBlend Liquid Makeup: With a smooth, creamy consistency, this foundation blends beautifully and is easily layered to a medium/full coverage. It also provides moderate moisture so that even in the dead of winter, my skin didn't feel deprived. At the 8 hour mark, I was very impressed with the way it stayed in tact without getting patchy or oxidizing. The new line presents a wider range of shades, but the only downside remains a lack of deeper tones. It's definitely an affordable foundation, and one I would recommend at $8.49.
