Cover Girl Tru Blend Blushes and Bronzer. Are they worth it?

I found this product a few weeks ago at my local Wal-Mart, the land of impulse buys. At the time they were on an end cap, along with three new primers that I also purchased, but that is another post. I noticed today while picking up a box of hair color (anyone interested to see this new change?) that they are now in the regular makeup aisle.

ONWARD TO THE REVIEW!!!!

The Blushes

There are 3 blush colors in this line; Light rose, medium rose, and deep mauve. These blushes are amazing. I truly love each and every one. If you need to build it up or blend it out it is very easy to do. The only off thing that I noticed about them is that the pan of baked product is smaller than the space it is in, so it makes me a bit nervous that they will fall out. But, that is really the only down side I could find. They are smooth and very long wearing! I am very impressed.

The Bronzer

Notice that bronzer is singular. I am a bit disappointed that there is only the one shade.

But, it is baked, so you would think you could wear it lighter if you stray away from the deeper tones. Not really in the one I purchased, I should have looked a little closed. The deepest tone takes up most of the pan, causing it to be a bit too warm on my very light skin tone. I am really hoping that Covergirl comes out with somme other shades of the bronzer.

Not sure if you can really tell from this picture, but, even four hours later (and a bit longer after that) the blush was still there and staying strong! By this time, I really noticed how warm the bronzer looked on my skin….then I also realized if I use a very light hand it may not appear as warm.

Well, I hope you enjoyed this review and thank you for reading!!
