I use to be quite the foundation snob and my favourite brand of all time was Chanel. My elitist foundation ways were cut short when my favourite foundation was discontinued. This need for a very pale, moisturizing, medium coverage foundation lead me very comparable but much more affordable Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum. Now don’t get me wrong I’m not about to jump ship I love the Bourjois, but recently I have been itching for something new and something cheap!
On a recent trip to Walmart and somewhere between purchasing Q-tips and dog food I ended up in the makeup department. Why does this always happen to me? With its claims of hydration and long lasting radiant skin I was drawn to the Stay Luminous display. However once I saw the brilliantly pale shade Classic Ivory and the affordable price of $12.95 I was sold.
With its weighted glass bottle, handy pump and travel friendly lid CoverGirl’s Stay Luminous feels expensive. Dare I even say the packaging of this is better than foundations 5 times its price! I am looking at you NARS Sheer Glow.
The non-glittery, yet luminous formula is where the magic happens. This weightless foundation has a light to medium coverage. As the ads suggest this foundation is both radiant and long wearing. On me it makes my dry skin look instantly renewed and glow-y. It’s the kind of foundation that you have that “damn, my skin looks amazing” moment with every time you look into a mirror. The results are so beautiful that I’ve convinced my immediate friends and family this is my natural pregnancy glow.
This foundation is a serious drugstore gem! I’ve had no problems with caking, fading, oxidizing or any of that funny business. If you have dry skin or more mature skin and are looking for a good dose of natural glow I highly suggest CoverGirl Outlast Stay Luminous Foundation.
