I haven't worn drug store foundation in a very long time, it has been years actually. And here is why: YOU CAN'T TRY IT ON!! I don't have the time or the patience to keep buying random foundation colors and having to return them. I have tried a few foundations over the years but I always go back to my MAC foundations. However I've been getting tired of them, but I also didn't want to spend a bunch of money on it either, so I decided to take a trip to Walgreens to find a new foundation.
I didn't do a lot of research before I made the decision to get this foundation, my main concern was the coverage and off course finding a color that would work for my skin tone. And Cover Girl's Queen All Day Flawless foundation provided me with everything I was looking for. This foundation provides the power of a power, concealer and foundation all in one.
I now understand why I see so many people with the wrong foundation on. Shopping for foundation at a drugstore is not fun. There are so many options and no one with the knowledge to answer your questions. If this is the route you want to take I would highly recommend reading some blog reviews/videos to get a better idea of what you would want before making a trip to the store.
The Queen All Day Flawless foundation is now my absolute favorite!!!! I paid about $14 with taxes and it was worth it.
- Great coverage. In my opinion it has a medium to medium coverage that can be build-able into full coverage if desired.
- Wide variety of colors
- Did not make me look oily
- Long lasting
- Flawless finish
- Designed for women of color
- Pricier than the other foundations
- I ran out of it much quicker than with my other foundations
- I don't think this is available in every store that offers CoverGirl products
The Queen Collection gets my vote just for the simple fact that it caters to women of color. There are so many brands (both high end and not) that do not provide colors that are suitable for us. Within the Queen Collection our every needs are met from eye shadows, to glosses and our foundation. I will definitely recommend this foundation to others.
