Today is a special day!
It’s my six-year bloggiversary!
I can’t believe BeautyJudy is 6-years-old!
This year between a crazy work schedule and being pregnant, I slacked in putting together a giveaway to say thank you (and honestly, I just remembered yesterday that it was a special occasion!) but I still wanted to say THANK YOU to all of you who check out my blog, and are part of what I have loved of the last six years. I enjoy our interactions on social media, the friends I’ve made, the bloggers and professionals I’ve met, and the opportunities that I’ve had to bring you cool beauty news via this website! I may not always be the fastest to respond to comments, but I read them and I am so grateful when you take the time to leave them!
Cheers to many more years of beauty blogging and friendships!
Instead of leaving it at that, I figured what better way to celebrate a bloggiversary than with a review?!
Today, I’ve got all 12 shades of Jordana Cosmetics’ new Complete Cover Maximum Coverage 2-in-1 Conealer & Foundation!
This foundation is – as its name suggests – a multitasker, serving as a concealer and a foundation with full to maximum coverage. It’s billed as water resistant and long-lasting, free from oils.
And the best part? The price – $3.99.
So how does it hold up?! Does it deliver on its coverage promise? Read on!
Swatches of all 12 shades, lightest to darkest:
From left to right: 01 Fair Beige, 02 Classic Beige, 03 Golden Beige, 04 Natural Beige, 05 Creamy Natural, 06 Honey Olive.
From left to right: 07 Neutral Olive, 08 Golden Olive, 09 Golden Caramel, 10 Toffee, 11 Golden Toffee and 12 Mahogany.
Here are the ingredients, taken from the Jordana website:
“Water (Aqua), Cyclopentasiloxane, IsononylIsononanoate, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, Butylene Glycol, Polyisobutene,C18-21 Alkane, Glycerin, Bis-PEG/PPG-14/14 Dimethicone, Bis-VinylDimethicone/Dimethicone Copolymer, VP/Eicosene Copolymer, Ozokerite,Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Sodium Chloride,Phenoxyethanol, Cera Alba (Beeswax), Glycereth-18 Ethylhexanoate, PotassiumSorbate, Silica, Caprylyl Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Isododecane, Xanthan Gum,Propylene Carbonate, Glycereth-18, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, AluminumDimyristate, Allantoin, Disodium Stearoyl Glutamate, C30-45 Alkyl CetearylDimethicone Crosspolymer. +/- May Contain: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), IronOxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499).”
The sign of a great foundation for me, with my rosacea and eczema facial skin issues, is flawless coverage. It’s what I need above all else (aside from the obvious that it should be good for sensitive skin!) and I will sacrifice other qualities to get that.
So I wore this foundation for a couple weeks on and off to get a real feel for the wear and durability, but I didn’t have to wear it long to decide how this performs with coverage. Here’s a before and after from the first time I tried it out. I used 01 Fair Beige:
My before shot shows off my lovely rosacea!
I know the saying is, “the proof is in the pudding!” But really, the proof of coverage is in these before and after shots. It’s VERY clear that this foundation is a rock star when it comes to covering up my imperfections!
Here’s a complete face look:
01 Fair Beige is truly a complementary shade for my skin tone! I am not wearing anything other than blush and lipstick in the above photo. I did not set the foundation with powder.
But while I LOVE LOVE LOVE the coverage I get from this foundation, it doesn’t quite seem to … set. It stays moist on my face, even when it’s blended in and it’s been a couple hours. I could easily rub foundation off my face, and if I’m applying in the morning before work (in the 7 a.m. hour), I feel the need to touch up by lunch because the foundation has broken down a bit, especially on my chin. Sometimes it breaks down on my nose, which has been problematic for me as I’ve had a bit of a rosacea breakout on my nose.
I will continue to wear this foundation and it earns a spot in my rotation. There is only one face product combo that I use that doesn’t require touch-ups, but I’ve got plenty more in my stash that do. So this is not uncommon for me, and for the price tag and the coverage, this is a keeper. And I will buy it when it runs out; this is a quick and easy application in the morning which I love, since I have a shorter hair do that now requires more time on my hair and takes away time from my beauty routine!
Complete Cover, again, retails for $3.99. It’s such a shame that Jordana products aren’t more widely available; it looks like this one won’t even be in Walgreens but you can order it from the brand website here!
What do you think of Complete Cover – what is your top priority in a foundation?!
