i was really impressed with the trublend from covergirl it made my face look natural
and its lasts a extreamley long time because you dont need a hole lot on your face.
I really like this stuff, because, i can use it all through the year even though its a shade darker then my natural color. Why? Because, during the winter I tend to get a little lighter then normal(not a fakebaker) so when i put this on it actually gives e a glow, showing what my natural color is, not in a bad way but a good way.. In the summer I get darker so when i put this on it makes my skin look glowy and nice, not too glittery and not too dark, it make my face even. So i just love it.
I got this stuff, hoping it would work! It didn't. It made my face feel heavy, and sticky-ish. It didn't blend that well, and it stinks! I ended up wiping it off, and haven't used any since.
Works great! Smells good! A little expensive but, if you want to look good...It's worth it!
As a die hard MAC fan (but not of the price), I found it hard to try to switch to drugstore brands.
BUT then I found cover girl products that I absolutely LOVE.
The True Blends mineral powder gives me the same finish over my liquid foundation as MAC studio fix did, but without the dryness.
I love the finish it gives me skin which is more natural and glowing!
I bought this cover up due to dark circles under my eyes. Not only did I pay almost $10 for it, it also doesn't work. It leaves a residue on your skin and does not cover well.
Finding a powder that matches your foundation (let alone your skin) can be quite difficult. It can be even more difficult if you have a tanner, redder skin tone like mine. I am neither the darkest of skin tones nor the fairest so finding a color for my year-round tan skin has always been quite a hassle, until I found this product.
I've used Cover Girl foundations and powders before, many of which caused acnes cosmetica (break-outs due to cosmetic usage). After several failed attempts, I braced myself to use their new line of TRUblend products, one of many product lines birthed from the mineral makeup craze in the U.S.
Desperate for makeup and on a tight budget, I tried the TRUblend mineral loose powder in Translucent Honey over my CG Clean Makeup liquid foundation. For $7.00, It gave great coverage with very little used, just by using the pouf. It wasn't so easy to blend in the first time, but after investing in a Kabuki hair powder brush, the powder goes on very fine and airbrush-like. This prevented me from using too much and giving me a "powdered down" look.
The avalable shades, however, can be questionable. CG doesn't carry a mineral loose powder any darker than Translucent Honey (which isn't very "dark" at all, especially for women of darker, ethnic skin tones) The colors are only slightly richer than the original loose powders but still tend to leave a "powder faced" look if too much is used. On CG's web site, some women have posted having even experienced an "orange glow" and "pumpkin face" effect. I, too, have experienced the "red face" upon my first attempt at using the powder. With the limited selection of available colors, no wonder some women have trouble finding the right shade. Once again, use a brush when using this product. This helps me look "natural" by avoiding the "pumpkin" look.
Of course, like all loose powders, it can be quite messy and you could end up wasting product if not careful. To avoid wasting product, I use my Kabuki brush (since it helps blend while using less powder). It is easy to wash off (only one wash does it for me) and doesn't cause breakouts (at least for my combination skin) since there's no talc. The ingredients aren't too far off from the original loose powders, but many of the irritants listed on the labels were exchanged for minerals like "zinc oxide". I wouldn't go so far to say the powder is "natural", but in my opinion, it's better for the skin most cosmetic powders in the $7-8 range.
Overall: If you're a college student (like me), on a tight budget and have a hot date this weekend, buy this product. Hopefully you don't have very pale, olive or very dark skin, or else you will be disappointed.
