CoverGirl actually Surprised me with the new Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation which is designed to be a one-step to gorgeous primer, foundation & powder all in one.

I was expecting a typical pinky-beige shade range and all of the usual caveats associated with CoverGirl foundations, but I was surprised with my findings...

Available in 12 shades ranging from light-deep (no fair shades), Ready Set Gorgeous is part of their new Spring 2014 lineup. (also included are a new concealer and pressed powder.) The idea is that Ready Set Gorgeous is supposed to be "one step to beautiful", even though they included three products!

Snarkiness sarcasm aside, they did do a fairly decent job with the foundation to make your morning routine easy, breezy, & leaving you beautiful with covergirl. (I'm sorry I had to do that.)

Seriously though, I rarely find a product which is truly unique in a big way. for the most part, this is standard; however, it does have one thing which is majorly different- the finish.

In many ways its a typical long-lasting/transfer resistant formula which is perfect for summer. It has a matte finish which is standard. Its also standard for a matte finish long-wearing formula to have a very distict feel to it once it sets, its almost a rubbery sort of feel. It may not be noticeable to those who have only applied a sheer layer, but I always swatch a glob. I want to see how it sets and how it performs, if the color changes, etc.

instead of the very common texture which I can't describe, this feels smooth. Silky smooth. It feels like it would have a powdery finish but its totally transfer proof (prob not on oily skin.) I actually was amazed at how it felt.

Even on my arm with the swatches below, if I closed my eyes it felt like nothing was there despite the VERY thick, uneven swatches. Very impressive CoverGirl. I would say that the finish is almost as lightweight, as, and in some ways surpasses, Estee Lauder Double Wear Long Wearing Makeup.

Oxidation was less impressive. It wasn't as bad as most CoverGirl products, but it wasn't great either. Unfortunately this will limit the options for lighter skin tones. I Highly recommend testing and waiting a while before leaving the house and purchasing from a store with a lenient return policy if you're fair skinned!

To sum it up, Ready Set Foundation is certainly a decent release from CoverGirl. Its nice they alternate undertones of shades between pink & yellow. I don't see this being a mind blowing sensation for many people, but its got a solid formula and performance which will likely keep it in drugstores for some time

I like this powder pretty well. Its what I use daily, its good coverage lightweight feel I do wish the compact was bigger I seem to run out very quickly. And It doesn't last very long but besides that its a great product would reccomend :)

Love this foundation/powder! It doesn't look or feel caked on my face, yet it covers everything and smooths out my complexion. I've been using this for years and it hasn't made my face breakout.

I loved this product at first, during the summer it blended well and the color matched my skin tone well. Now that it's winter it's not working too well. My skin is dry though, so I'm hoping to reevaluate after I amp up my moisturizing routine.

This is the only brand of press powder that I use. I tend to get greasy spots in my t-zones. This prevents the oily feeling. It blends well and does not cause me to break out. I use it daily after I apply my liquid makeup. It is perfect for my skin and my go-to powder.

Great coverage downside is it's goes on chalky and cakey make sure you exfoliate skin and it's nicely moisturized and don't pack on too much

Good powder! Mattes face well and keeps for most of the day. Seems like a small amount for a drugstore powder.

The Ready Set Gorgeous concealer is my HG!! I've been wanting a good medium coverage drugstore foundation and have been curious about this one in particular. I've never tried a powder foundation, how does this hold up as compared to the liquid?

Is it good for normal-dry skin and is it better than maybelline fit me powder?
