Covergirl Trublend Liquid Foundation Review

I received this product free from Bzzagent - all opinions are my own

I have to say, I was kind of excited when I was picked to be part of the Covergirl/Bzzagent campaign - I haven't used a drugstore brand makeup in quite some time and love the idea of an inexpensive alternative to the makeup I am currently using! 

(Sidenote, have you heard of Bzzagent?? You get to review products they send you for free - the more you bzz the higher your points get! You can turn down campaigns if you aren't interested and don't lose points. I prefer Bzzagent to Influenster and Chick Advisor because Bzzagent only makes you review the products you receive, where the other 2 base what you get on how much you post on their sites). 

I selected the Covergirl Trublend Liquid Makeup because it sounds most similar to what I currently use. Turns out, Covergirl created a tool to help you choose the perfect match for your skin (found here) and I was matched up with the type I selected - here are my selections: I want builadable coverage for dry skin and I want a flawless look for my medium complexion. 

Also, I know some people get freaked out about selecting a color online, while Sephora's color IQ is great it only works for what's available at that store. I use a website called Findation.com where you type in the shade you wear in other makeup brands to help match you up! Using this tool, I selected "L5 - Creamy Natural) from Bzzagent (and it was a perfect match!)

Sorry for the long intro, here is a look at the makeup:

Covergirl Trublend Liquid Makeup ~ $11.94. TruBlend Liquid Makeup blends seamlessly for a flawless look.Perfectly matches 99% of all skintones. Available in 21 shades - 7 light, 7 medium, and 7 deep to easily find your perfect blend. You won’t know where your makeup ends and your own skin begins!

I like the locking pump applicator system - turn to open, pump to dispense, and turn again to lock. Here is a look at the texture and consistency of the Covergirl Trublend Liquid Makeup:


I really like the texture - it is very light and applies very smooth! I was impressed with how far one pump got and liked that it did not feel heavy or cakey when on the skin.

I did some before and after pictures on my skin with just the Trublend Liquid Foundation (ugh, unedited for you to see true results) - I applied 2 pumps to my face and used a brush to apply.


Overall, I was happy with the coverage. Of course, I need a little concealer, but overall it evened out my skin tone and covered what I needed. I would say this is a great go to day time foundation - I have been wearing it fairly often to work since receiving it. I'm surprised at how much I liked this product as I'm usually one of those who sometimes associates lower prices with lower quality. 

It may not be the longest lasting through-out a long day and night, but I can save a more expensive foundation for that time. I would certainly consider repurchasing this product when I'm done this bottle!
