I used to use a liquid foundation and it seemed to work okay. However, over time, I became frustrated with it. I was never very skilled at applying it and sometimes I wouldn’t rub it in very well. Also, I had more than one bottle spill all over everything. Plus, my skin tends to be oily in some spots and dry in others and the liquid foundation would either make the oil worse or dry out the already dry areas.
I finally decided that I needed to find something easier to use that would be a better match for my skin type. I came across Cover Girl Simply Powder Foundation at a local drugstore. What attracted me to it was that it said on the packaging that it covers like a liquid with the lightweight freshness of a powder! This was definitely what I was looking for.
I have been using Cover Girl Simply Powder Foundation for several years now. It costs about $7.00. I like how it comes in a case with a mirror. This makes it convenient to keep in my purse. Also, it comes with a sponge which I think works great. It’s not too rough on my face like other sponges I have used. I like how it is a pressed powder so it doesn’t go everywhere when you apply it like loose powders tend to do.
It is very quick and easy to apply. No more mess. First, I apply a light moisturizer and wait until that is absorbed. Then I apply any concealer , which I only need if I have especially red spots. After the concealer , I apply this powder.
Cover Girl Simply Powder Foundation comes in a variety of shades, but I chose the lightest one #505 Ivory. The color looks very natural. It also covers as well as it claims on the package. I like that this powder doesn’t make my skin flakey, although, sometimes I do need to reapply it later in the day to my oily areas like my nose.
In my opinion, this is the best product I have found for my skin type. I haven’t used anything else since. It makes getting ready in the morning less of a hassle. It also lasts a long time. The sponge is easy to clean too. I just put a little dish soap on it and rub it in then rinse it with hot water and allow it to dry overnight.
