Wet n Wild Cover All Cream Foundation is possibly one of the nicest budget foundations I’ve come across in a long time. At $3.59 with a $1 off coupon I paid a mere $2.59 at Harmons for it.
Wha?!?! Unheard of! Decent foundation for under three bucks? How is that possible?
It does have a few hiccups though! Hey, you can’t have it all!
Wet n Wild Cover All Cream Foundation is a tiny misleading. Coverage is sheer to almost medium but not full in my humblest opinion. I think “Cover All” implies full coverage and this is more of a sheerer to medium coverage foundation. So if you desire full coverage you might be disappointed.
On the upside…
It should cover MANY issues. Redness, dark spots, minor acne and acne scarring, etc….this has plenty of pigment to tackle those issues.
Now the key to success here and keep this long wearing is to use powder with it. I don’t like to set my foundation/bb cream. I have dry skin so applying my base plus powder makes me look like I have WAY too much makeup on due to my dry skin. But you must, must set Cover All otherwise it’ll disappear within an hour. Fading away into nothingness and leaving you without foundation on. The key to long wear is to set…don’t say I didn’t warn you.
The texture is positively dreamy. This is a creamy gel foundation that blends onto skin smoothly and evenly. It didn’t accentuate or emphasize less than smooth or dry areas and blended right over them creating a smooth, working canvas for my makeup. I wouldn’t call the texture that of a BB Cream, it’s more of a gel foundation with a hydrating feel. I think it should work on many skin types considering it dries down to a soft, satiny feel without overly mattifying skin or contributing to dryness. Coverage is natural yet flawless and gives a minimal makeup appearance. I couldn’t rave more about how little it costs and how amazing it feels.
My sadness is the wear time is vastly short without powder. I’d say within an hour’s wear my skin sucks it up and it fades completely away. The most I’ve gotten out of the wear is a two hour period.
If you’re on a strict budget or just in need of a cheap foundation thrill I urge you to check out Wet n Wild Cover All Cream Foundation. I liked it. Great texture, easy to apply and blend, wear time is iffy and disappointing but you can’t have everything for under three bucks!
