Celebrating true African beauty

My Cover girl drugstore buy

I am a self-confessed foundation & powder monogamist. I have been using either Flori Roberts foundation/powder or Maybe line dream matte mousse foundation. For me, brand names mean nothing because am only interested in brands that consider women of color and how well their products suit my color, my skin texture and humid African temperature. 

I am also a natural girl so I want makeup that is lightweight for the natural look. So I went for Cover Girl Clean matte bb cream for oily skin (shade: 560 deep) and Cover Girl Ready, set, gorgeous oil free concealer in shade 315-320, oil free shine control powder foundation – same shade and Cover Girl Euphoria lipstick.

Here is how it turned out:

My review: The products are a perfect fit for my complexion, easy to apply, lightweight and smooth. It’s not heavy or clumpy. I didn’t even feel like I was wearing makeup. I love it.

Because the products are lightweight, it means it has a build able coverage meaning you could improve the coverage as you want.

I purposely opted out the foundation to see if the bb cream and the powder foundation could provide enough coverage for me which it did. I still intend to buy the foundation to see if it could give much deeper coverage needed for evening ocassions. 

I love the moisturizing glossy textured Euphoria lipstick though I was expecting a shade deeper. The lipstick looked deeper in the packaging.

Tell me if you’ve used any of these products before and if you liked them.
