Wet N' Wild Coverall Cream Foundation and Pressed Powder: Part 1

I wanted to try the new Wet N' Wild Coverall Cream Foundation since I first heard the announcement of its arrival in stores, but never really had an interest in the powder.  However, Rite Aid had BOGO 1/2 off sale on WNW products and I figured, why not try the powder too?  So for Part 1, let's go over the foundation, shall we?

First things first:  the shade selection here sucks.  And it's weird for me to say that because the shade I ended up getting for myself is absolutely perfect for me.  However, that won't be the case for many of you.  There are a total of 7 shades, which isn't bad necessarily, except for the fact that all of the shades with the exception of Medium Tan (the one I chose), have pinky undertones.  Medium Tan has yellow/olive undertones, but if you're lighter than NC35 or deeper than NC42, I doubt you'll be able to pull it off.

I'm happy to say that's the only major roadblock with this foundation.  Texture-wise, it has a thick consistency yet it blends onto the face with a very lightweight feel.  It feels moisturizing as you apply it, yet it dries down to a semi-matte finish, as promised by the product packaging.  I never feel like I have to powder this to set it.

The Coverall Cream provides a solid medium coverage on me.  I've only ever applied it with my fingers and it blends quite easily while evening out my skin.  I will say that it ends up looking just a tad bit too dry on my already dry skin, but it's nothing a little highlighter can't fix. And even though I don't look dewy, I love that it doesn't feel dewy, you know what I mean.  I love to look luminous but I hate that feeling like my makeups is about to melt off.  Don't have to deal with that here.
L-R:  CC Foundation in Medium Tan, CC Foundation spread out, CC Powder 
Bottom Line:  Amber Really Likes

This is a really nice product, plain and simple.  I've never tried a face product from Wet N' Wild before, but I gotta say I'm definitely impressed.  Stay tuned for Part 2 when we go over the powder!

You can find more information on this product on the WNW website!  It retails for $3.59.
