Most Awesome Drugstore Foundation Ever!!

Sometimes when you meet a product you fall in love. You love it so much that you use it everyday. You tell everyone you know about your new-found love. You even talk to your husband about it (although you know he doesn't really care and probably isn't even listening). And then one day you wake up... and the love just isn't there anymore. You feel betrayed. Why isn't the product doing all the things for you that it did when you first met? You wonder where it all went wrong.

But then there are times when the love just gets stronger every day. You wonder how you ever lived without it. You pray that the company never stops making it. You hoard a little of it. You have to resist hoarding even more whenever it's on sale. You've met your soul mate. It's true love.

Hi,, my name is Kim and I'm in love with Cover Girl's NatureLuxe liquid silk foundation.


I did a post about this product a few months ago on my old blog. I've been using it pretty regularly for the past 3 months and I wanted to do an update.

Reasons I love this product:
  • it's extremely lightweight
  • it's easy to apply
  • a little goes a long way
  • you can build coverage if needed (I find it covers well in one application)
  • it doesn't look or feel like most liquid foundations
  • it's inexpensive (especially when it's on sale!)
  • no clogged pores or breakouts
  • minimal oiliness
It's available pretty much everywhere, but I bought mine at Ulta when the CG products were on sale for "buy one get one half off", and also used a $3.50 off $10 coupon as well.


In case you have sensitive skin or allergies, here is a list of the ingredients:

I have sensitive skin that is prone to oiliness, clogged pores, and breakouts, but this foundation hasn't caused any issues for me so far. I really, really hope that Cover Girl never stops making it! As a matter of fact, I'm going to email them a love letter right now. XOXO
