Covergirl TruBlend Foundation

CoverGirl recently released a reformulated version of their TruBlend Liquid Makeup foundations.  There are a couple different versions of the temporary displays in drugstores now, and some of them have testers of all 21 shades! I was so excited to see this that I swatched several, and found what I thought was a good match in Light 7, Warm Beige.

It’s a thick, creamy, medium-to-full coverage foundation that dries down to a satiny, semi-matte finish on my dry skin.

It’s obviously darker and warmer than my inner arm, and although I initially thought it matched my face well, seeing the below before and after makes me think that it’s not actually a good match at all – though I swear it looks better in person!

Covergirl TruBlend Before After

No makeup // Covergirl TruBlend foundation only

I like the creamy texture (it contains several silicones), and find it easy to blend, and easy to adjust the coverage level. In the “after” picture above, I have one layer of foundation on my nose, inner cheeks, and between my brows, two layers of foundation on my chin, and the foundation is blended away into nothingness near my hairline.

The foundation has no sunscreen (which I prefer; I use my own sunscreen daily), and when I took a few flash photos, I didn’t notice any flashback effect.

  • Almay Smart Shade mousse has been my go-to lately because it’s pretty moisturizing. That and my HG Mac Studio Sculpt!

    This looks great on you! I think the color looks nice in the “after” picture. I’m curious to know how this compares to the Stay Fabulous foundation- I just purchased that one yesterday, but I like that this seems to have more of a satin finish (rather than matte).

    When I was growing up during the late 90s/early 2000s, CoverGirl wasn’t my favorite brand for foundation. It was too thick, smelled weird and never really carried my exact shade. But if they reformulated it, I would take a look at it (15 years later). I’m in love with Revlon Colorstay, and MUFE HD has been treating me well. L’Oreal True Match is another I have been testing out, and it’s decent.
