Product Review: Covergirl Clean Whipped Creme Foundation, Classic Tan 360

I’m going to get right to it. This is hands down one of the worst foundations I have ever used.  Here is why…

I used four layers of this and couldn’t get full coverage. I felt like there was a blanket of silicone laying on my skin. It felt heavy and unnecessary. I applied this with my fingers then a Sigma F80 flat top kabuki brush. Both techniques worked to apply the foundation but the brush looked like it was dipped in wax and was impossible to clean afterwards.

One of the top ingredients in this formula is dimethicone. This is a silicone that is used in most face primers and provides that velvety soft feeling when rubbing product onto the skin. Dimethicone is extremely bad for acne prone skin as it creates a barrier on top of the skin and traps everything under neath it. As an everyday makeup product, that’s just bad. This all makes so much sense. This foundation glides so well and decreases the look of pores and fine lines. It’s basically got a built in primer from the dimethicone.

Cons: The formula sticks to skin, clinging to every dry patch. It’s hard to wash off. It is not full coverage. This takes a while to set and if you use too much it starts to crumble.

Pros: It can blend well if you apply little by little. If your skin is perfect and all you need is a little coverage this can work for you. It does look smooth and airbrushed on the skin. You don’t need to set it with powder. It holds up well and can wear all throughout the day.

In my opinion this foundation won’t work for everyone but I do see someone with pretty decent skin with a little need for coverage getting some good use out of it. It just happened to look awful on me because my skin is very yellow and this collection carries more cool tone shades. Also I need full coverage, I have redness and hyper pigmentation. This is a sheer to medium coverage foundation.

  1. I have yet to hear good things about this foundation. Every review I’ve read or seen you YouTube was unfavorable, pretty bad in fact. haha. Sad, because I think they scored with their 3-in-1 foundation! Thanks for the good and honest review 🙂
