Review: CoverGirl Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation & Powder!

Best Drugstore Combo!

CoverGirl Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation & Powder
On my recent trip to Walgreens I noticed a new display with Katy Perry and was super excited! I love Katy Perry and she's undeniably gorgeous! The display was full of new products from nail polishes to lip glosses but I wanted to try the foundation first. I had such great results with the CoverGirl Stay Fabulous  3-in-1 Foundation so I had high hopes for this one... and I wasn't disappointed!
Claims:
The packaging claims to leave a flawless, natural look that lasts all day. It also mentions that the formula blends easily to even the skin tone and reduces shine all day. It's an oil-free formula that doesn't clog pores that is also suitable for sensitive skin. The powder also has just about the same claims, emphasis on it being oil absorbing providing shine control.
I do agree with the claims, this foundation is amazing! It's a thinner consistency than the Stay Fabulous but still provides enough coverage without looking cakey. It's definitely a natural looking foundation which is awesome for these hot days. I use it with my Beauty Blender and the finish is beautiful! It dries to a satin finish. The powder is actually a powder foundation so it can be used alone or as a setting powder for extra coverage. I haven't tried it alone but over the foundation it works really well! It comes with a sponge that is washable and I use it to set my under eye concealer. I then use a powder brush to set the rest of my face. I love how they pair together! Normally within 3 hours or so I would have touch up with other foundations but with this combo I don't see the oils appear until 6-7 hours into the day. Here's a picture of what the foundation and powder look like before applying anything else:

This was taken with my iPhone so excuse the quality haha. But you can see that my skin looks even and youthful!
I haven't found a con with these products! They work well and the packaging is super pretty. I love the splash of pink and white. I don't mind the squeeze tube packaging for the foundation, its easier for me to get the right of amount of product out. My favorite part about this line is the number coding they have. The foundation, powder and also concealer (that I passed on) have number coding to make it easier to match the products to your correct shade. I think that's really smart and makes our lives simpler. Here's my finished face:

Bottom line: I'm loving this combo and recommend you give it a try! The color selection is wide and choosing your color is also simple. At Walgreens they each retail for $8.99 but at the time they were having a sale so it was a bargain. This will be my go to foundation for the spring and summer because of the oil control qualities. Now... stop what your doing and go get this! :-)

    1. Hello! I would suggest 220 if you're still on the lighter side but its difficult to determine since I don't know what you look like. I would recommend to go on the Covergirl site where they have all the names/numbers to make it easier!
