My new favorite foundation

The drugstore has been on a role recently. Almost daily new products come out, and the quality is getting better and better. Unfortunately, the price is also increasing with the quality. Wet N’ Wild is one of my favorite brands because the price has stayed fairly consistent, and the quality just keeps getting better.

They recently came out with a cushion foundation. I love cushion foundations because they look beautiful on the skin. The L’oreal Lumi Cushion is one of my favorite foundations of all time. When I ran out, I didn’t repurchase the foundation because it was almost $20 (!!).

A few weeks ago, I was at CVS for the first time is such a long time. I came across the Wet N’ Wild Mega Cushion Foundation for $8.99. On that same display was a manufacture coupon for $1 off. So a cushion foundation for $8 literally cannot be beat. I took this foundation home and decided to read up on the claims. On the website, it says that the foundation is infused with coconut derivative to create luminous, lightweight and buildable formula to help boost hydration. Before I tell you my thoughts on the foundation, I want to explain my skin type. I have incredibly dry skin, a crazy oily t-zone that is very acne prone skin. Basically, the worst of all worlds. So all face products I use have to not clog my pores, not emphasize texture and dry patches, and control (or hold up) with my oil. That’s a lot to ask for from a foundation.

To apply all cushion foundations, I use a beauty blender (or any beauty sponge you have on hand). I tap the bottom of the sponge into the cushion and then apply all over my face. I tapped my sponge in one time, and was blown away by the coverage. One tap covered a little more than half my face. With another small tap, I had my full face done. This foundation did not give me full coverage. But, I love a good medium coverage foundation, and this was definitely that. The finish was a natural/ slightly luminous finish that did not emphasize my dry patches.

The foundation also held up throughout the day. I did get oily on my nose, but that is to be expected especially since I did not use a mattifying or oil-controlling primer. The next time I wore this foundation, I used my MUFE pore filling primer and I had no issues what-so-ever. The foundation looked beautiful for the 7 long hours I wore it.

I am thoroughly impressed with Wet N’ Wild because they really knocked it out of the park with this one. With such a great price point, they created an amazing, lightweight foundation that I could see being fit for many different people.

If you have dry or combo skin, go check out your local drugstore or wetnwildbeauty.com to purchase it!

Thank you so much for reading and have a great rest of your week.
