Happy Thursday! I haven’t posted in awhile as lots of personal stuff going on. I’ve had to scale back my weekly visits to Ulta, (which is killing me), but I did visit last week and got some great stuff.
Full disclosure, I’m not a big fan of full coverage foundation. I have good skin for my age, and only spot conceal and use loose powder. I was in Ulta and had a ton of coupons, along with their buy one get one 50% off sale going on, so it was time to try some new things. CoverGirl Outlast All-Day Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation in Classic Ivory. I rarely use liquid foundation, and am a lover of powder foundation when I use it. I have mature skin and a few spots that need covering. This product was $10.99 at Ulta, but I paid $5.50 with coupons and store specials. It’s one ounce and has an SPF of 20.
Here’s Ulta’s description- The Cover Girl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 foundation longwear that keeps you all day flawless. Longwear designed to stay fabulous all day because it has concealer and primer built in. Smooth, even coverage. SPF 20.
I’m always skeptical of 3 in 1 products. Rarely do they do as advertised. I was happily wrong on this foundation. The claim of a primer, concealer and foundation was spot on. I didn’t have to use concealer under my eyes, and barely had to use concealer elsewhere. I have dark circles, and this foundation totally covered them. The coverage last all day. I wish the SPF was higher, like a 30, as I use a moisturizer with a 30 SPF daily. This has great coverage but is not too thick. I have good skin, so I don’t have a lot I need to cover up. Plus the price can’t be beat. I will be buying this again. The picture I have was at lunchtime, no need to touch up.
I’m 58 and don’t have too many wrinkles. It was great not having to use concealer under my eyes, as it always seems to settle in the many lines I have. Typical car photo, and it’s April here in Southeastern Wisconsin and I’m still wearing a winter coat! Oh, and my selfie skills suck! I heard on the radio that if you were born after 1980, you are likely to take 25,000 selfies in your lifetime. Yikes! Do people really want to see you that much? Of course my teenage son is constantly on Snapchat.
Thanks for stopping by.
