Have you been busy lately with Christmas preparations, parties and reunions? Well, me too! I can totally relate!!! Aside from that, the next thing to prepare for is the upcoming New Year celebration. Whew! Super jam-packed schedules… Haha! 🙂 Thus, it has been a while since my last post.
For today, I will be sharing with you my recent love for CoverGirl products. They are so amazing and I am thankful that I was able to discover them through my December 2014 BDJ Box: CoverGirl. I will initially feature the CoverGirl TruBlend Liquid Makeup in Buff Beige and CoverGirl TruBlend Pressed Powder in Translucent Light.
First off, the review for the CoverGirl TruBlend Liquid Makeup in Buff Beige…
Product Description (taken from the CoverGirl website):
truBLEND Liquid Makeup is available in 21 shades and features a new shade-matching system. To find your perfect blend, first determine your shade family. Second, choose your number. Coordinate complementary truBLEND products based on your number for a seamlessly flawless nude look that blends in and virtually disappears.

The bottle includes a pump so you could easily dispense a certain amount of the product depending on your desired coverage.
Here is a swatch of the CoverGirl TruBlend Liquid Makeup in Buff Beige.
I like that this foundation could give a medium to full coverage yet it is very natural-looking. It easily blends on the skin and does not make you look so made up. Looking fresh is so easy with this foundation.
Next, the review for the CoverGirl TruBlend Pressed Powder in Translucent Light…
Product Description (printed on the packaging of the product):
(front and back)
It is just a thin compact that you can easily slip into your makeup kit and it won’t take so much space.
This also includes a thin powder puff which could be ideal for touch-ups. But if you will have to apply it to set your foundation, I suggest you go with your favorite powder brush. 😀
This product goes really well with the CoverGirl TruBlend Liquid Makeup. If you want to get a fuller coverage, I suggest that you don’t use this powder alone as this can only give a very light coverage. This is just perfect to set your foundation and for occasional touch-ups.
Apart from the effect of the makeup on the skin, I also like that you can easily match the foundation with the powder. The corresponding shade number of the foundation matches with the same shade number of the powder. You don’t have to worry about getting all confused with what specific shades go together.
Here are the retail prices of each product:
- CoverGirl TruBlend Liquid Makeup – Php645
- CoverGirl TruBlend Pressed Powder – Php425
I don’t normally post my picture whenever I review face makeup products but I will have to do an exception for this one. I just love how these products turned out on me on camera. 😉
By the way, these pictures were taken when we were having a shoot for our video presentation for our company Christmas party. *Hi, Grace! Thank you so much for these pictures!* 😀
Here are the products that I used:
Laura Mercier Foundation Primer

- true to being TruBlend (easy to blend and really looks like your second skin)

- Shade numbers match that of the foundation and the powder.
- The pressed powder gives a light coverage which is perfect to set the foundation and can also be used for touch-ups.
