The title says it all.

I've never had any luck finding a good powder foundation from the drugstore. So, I am over the moon about finally finding one that exceeds all my expectations !

Shade & Formula

The Covergirl Tru Blend Minerals Pressed Mineral Foundation in 04 - Soft Honey is a near perfect match for my NC 40 skin tone. It looks a lot darker in the compact but its the glue to bringing together my dark chin with the rest of face which a couple of shades lighter.

This is a sheer to light foundation - not something that gives a whole lot coverage. If you are looking to hide blemishes or acne scars this alone may not be enough. This over a liquid or creme foundation will work better.

I am tinted moisturizer kinda girl so all I want from a powder foundation is to

- help even skin tone
- be light weight
- keep me looking fresh all day long.

I get all this and more !


Lookin
Clean & Fresh, Man !


I wore the foundation this past weekend over my Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel and got complimented ( from a boy, no less !) on how clean my face looked. It must have been good right coz we all know boys never notice anything.

If you have uneven skin tone and had a bout of dry skin - clean sounds mega fantastic to your ears . After almost 3 hours of wearing I still had a friend tell me that she wished she looked as fresh as I did. And then I told her I was testing a new foundation. Everybody gave huge points ! And I do too.

I wear all my powder foundation over a primer so they spread well. But this one does great over just a moisturizer. Even in Texan 100 degree weather I looked great for at least four - five hours. At the end of it I did a mini touch up with my Cover Fx Kabuki Brush (the best). The brush that comes with the product is useless.

The Covergirl Tru Blend Minerals Pressed Mineral Foundation can be found at all drugstores and Walmart for $10.11.

In Other News

I BOSTONMED !!!

I have a huge thing for medical dramas. Most keep me interested but this one has to be the best yet ! Finally a true show where unlike HouseMD the first diagnosis is not Lupus for everything. Plus how adorable are the doctors ! And they have the best personalities to match !

Dr.Dibar reminds me of the doc who operated on my mom a few years back - so sweet and reassuring ! Pina Patel - you the doll ! Cant wait for more episodes !

Love,
Indian Girl

Wow...which channel does this show come on? On an aside, I wanted to ask you..how do you buy foundation or powder at the drugstore? I'm so used to trying on the formulas that just guessing something is going to match my skin is kinda difficult with no testers. Any advice would be much appreciated!

Hey The Housewife !

The only thing is to have a realistic idea of one's skin tone. If you've have a good idea on your skin tone and have been checking out foundations for a while its easy to say which will suit you the most. its mostly one of two or max thee shades. Most often we come near but they probably just wont have a shade that is most appealing to us. Then its time to return the product (always keep receipts, always buy at CVS)

Hi! I saw your post and got really excited. I use the Tru Blend Powder compact in Natural Beige, but I never tried the mineral foundation. I recently bought the liquid foundation though and I love it. I'm really glad you post about drugstore products too. Some of us just can't afford to spend so much on beauty...

After searching high and low for this item I finally located it in a sell-out-store in NYC (Lot Less Chain). I purchased it for only $2.99 but I hope I don't fall in love because I think they may be discontinuing this item :(

They HAVE discontinued this product!!! :-( I don't know why. It's the best I've found in YEARS. I can't even remember the last time I actually used up a beauty product. I came across this site while searching for a supplier online. Any suggestions where this out of production item might still be found?
