Wet n Wild’s New Coverall Foundation Gives Great Coverage!

February 25, 2013
Wet n Wild is one of those brands that you’d think you shouldn’t expect much from since it is so inexpensive, but I have to admit I am always impressed with the products they put out. And their new Coverall Cream Foundation is no exception to their streak of great products. I had to give it a try when I read that it is a medium to full coverage because, let’s face it… good coverage in drugstore foundations is hard to find. But I am overwhelmingly impressed with this foundation.

I purchased the Coverall Cream Foundation in 818 Light/Medium since I like a little extra color to my face. As you can see on the back, it states it has all day wear, medium to full coverage, lightweight satin matte finish, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and rejuvenates the skin. It does have excellent lasting power, but I also use a primer and a setting powder to ensure it stays all day. Some foundations, such as the Revlon Color Stay, actually wear off on my upper cheeks where my freckles are. And that’s where I prefer fuller coverage so that fact that this lasted on me all day is impressive. 
It says it is a satin matte finish but I would say it’s more of a flat matte color. Which isn’t bad since I light to use bronzer and highlighters anyway. I can’t say whether it reduces the appearance of wrinkles since I really don’t have any but it does leave a nice finish on my skin. Even with a setting powder it never really looks “cakey”. 

The product is in a squeeze bottle which I actually really like because it is easy to control the amount of product you squeeze out. Not a bad size either since it contains about 1 fl. oz. and you really don’t need to use a lot because of the fuller coverage.

Here you can see the foundation swatched (on the right) and blended in (on the left). 

Here is a closeup of my face with the foundation in 818 Light/Medium. I set it with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Medium Plus and am wearing Wet n Wild Blush in Berry Shimmer and MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle for a highlight powder.

Here you can see a full face of the foundation. Leaves a nice matte finish and is actually full coverage without looking “cakey”. It even covers up my freckles! That’s how I know it is a winning foundation. If it lasts all day and covers my freckles then I’m sold.
You can purchase the Wet n Wild Coverall Cream foundation at any CVS, Walgreens or Walmart location. Or click here to purchase it online. And the best part…it’s under $10! Now that’s a bargain.
Have you tried this foundation? Any thoughts?
