COVERGIRL recently launched Ready, Set Gorgeous, a new collection of oil free foundations, concealers, and powders with a build in powder system that prevents shine and mattifies skin by pulling oil away from the skin instead of trapping it under your makeup. I’ve been testing it for a few weeks and I absolutely love it!
Although the color range isn’t vast (the foundation comes in 12 shades, concealer 5, powder 6), I was able to find a match in the foundation (classic tan) and matching concealer. I’ve found powders that work so I didn’t want to rock the boat and skipped it.
The foundation formula is lightweight with medium to full coverage, but it doesn’t set like a mask. Once it sets, it has a natural finish so skin looks flawless but real.
The concealer is just ok for under-eye (you need more coverage if you have really dark circles), but it’s even better for spot concealing or a highlight. The biggest plus for me is that it’s relatively long lasting. Typically my foundation starts to fade after hour 4 (even with primer and setting spray), but this one actually lasted all day, which is a huge coup considering I have combination skin.
The collection ranges from $6.99-$8.99 depending on the store (go to Ulta and use a coupon like I did!), so if you need to mix and match you can. I initially purchased the concealer for this shade but winded up getting the darker one as well to mix it with so that my undereye wouldn’t have an ashy cast.
Only use 1-2 pumps max and wait about 3 minutes after application before adding concealer. The foundation has a slight color adjusting effect, so you may not need as much concealer as you think.
