CoverGirl TruBlend Mineral Foundation Review

As I have mentioned before, I HATE wearing heavy makeup during the summer time.
It's not very practical to pack on foundation in this heat.
It's just going to end up melting.


So during the summer, I use CoverGirl's TruBlend Mineral powder foundation.
I just recently discovered it and it really works great.


CoverGirl TruBlend Minerals Pressed Mineral Foundation
Creamy Natural

It's packaging is great. You can just throw it into your makeup bag without any difficulty. It's very travel friendly.


Here's a closer look.

It's very neutral. It has matte finish to it.
It gives me a medium fair coverage.
It slides on easily on your skin and it also blends out pretty well once you have finished applying it.
It does get a little powdery so make sure to spray water or a little bit of
Fix+ on your face once your done.


It comes with a mini brush applicator.

Though I prefer to use my own foundation brush when I use it.
I find it waaaay easier to apply. You can either use a sponge, a foundation brush,
or a kabuki brush, whichever you prefer.

Make sure to keep on buffing it once you've applied it to achieve a matte finish.


There are 6 different skin tones for the CoverGirl TruBlend Mineral Foundation.

1. Creamy Natural
2. Tawny
3. Soft Honey
4. Natural Beige
5. Soft Sable
6. Ivory

I am a natural beige. I am a little bit light-skinned but I get dark really easily so this color is in the middle of my real skin tone.
It's a great match for me.

This foundation is one of the best products I've ever tried. It works really well and it's very easy to apply. I will definitely re-purchase.


Have you tried this before? Which foundation/powder do you use during the summer time?

  8. Hey Carrie,

    Not sure if my previous comment saved... however, Thanks for stopping by doll.
    I'm also not much of a make up wearer in summer, the thought of clogged up pores scares me, well that and a face that melts off - it's way hot over here in Greece! Looks like a good product though.


  9. i just tried the matte bare minerals and love it so much!

  10. i need to try it!

  11. i hate wearing heavy foundatin also so i'll look into this. thanks for the review! :)

  12. Awesome! I don't know if my previous comment got posted so this is another! I dont like wearing heavy makeup too, since it's always hot here it's so annoying...but I get pretty for something special and shows! :D



  13. Great post, and I love the quote at the bottom!! So true!

  14. @ABritGreek: No problem. Thanks for stopping by too. I've never been to Greece but it's on the top of my list of places i have to see. :)

    @Krystal: Mineral powder is really good to use in the summer. It prevents you from breaking out. :]

    @K: Definitely.

    @Donna: You're welcome.

    @AboutLastWeekend: :D

    @A!ko: same here. the only time i go all out on makeup is when there is a special occasion.

    @OneCraftFox: Thanks. :)

  15. I prefer a tinted moisturizer with SPF for summer months. It evens skin tone while providing much-needed sun protection. Speak of, I actually need to get some more!
