Today I thought I’d bring you a foundation review of a newer product in the drugstores. As part of their Clean foundation line, over the summer CoverGirl released the Whipped Creme foundation to stores. I haven’t seen many advertisements for this, nor did I at the time, but thought it looked interesting enough to do a review for.
CoverGril Whipped Foundation comes in a glass jar with a plastic lid. While this makes for super cute packaging, I personally don’t like it. I found that due to it’s wide base, it takes up a lot of room among my other foundations. I also find this kind of packaging to be unsanitary. Although, I don’t think this product really would have worked in any other type of container.
As you can see the consistency of the product is thick and, as the product says, whipped. As it’s difficult enough to get most foundations out of the regular glass bottles, unless they have a pump, this would have been next to impossible. A plastic squeeze tube would have changed the consistency of the product upon distribution to the skin, so the glass container was really the best way to go.
My first real complaint about the product is the shading. The shade that I chose was ” 310 Classic Ivory” and this appeared in the container, swatched out, and applied much darker than the usual “Classic Ivory” even in the same foundation line. I chose Classic Ivory because that’s the shade that I am in the regular CoverGirl Clean Foundation and it’s no where near as dark as this was. If you look at the photo below in the “Shop this Post” section, it appears much lighter as well and that is the same shade.
As you can see when blended out a very little bit goes a very long way. However, even when using a small amount, for my skin, the texture stayed very wet and thick through wear. I just could not get the product to absorb into the skin, it just seemed to sit on top throughout wear.
As you can see when the foundation finally dried it was very grainy and cakey. Also, when I applied and wore this out for the review I wound up having a very bad reaction to it. The reaction was so bad my face started turning red and my skin felt like it was on fire. This was the first time I ever had to run into a store to purchase makeup wipes and cleanser so that I could go clean my face in the bathroom right then and there. By the time I got all of the product off I was in tears. This may not happen for you but just be aware before using. I would do a test swatch on the back of your hand or the inside of your rest and let it sit there awhile before using.
