Wet n Wild Coverall Cream foundation review, before & after photos

Ok, hold on to your knickers ladies, I've got a good one to show ye today!  As we know, the arrival of US brand Wet n Wild had us all in a bother but now that the dust has settled and I've had a chance to try out some of the bits, I'm ready to tell you about them.

Now, I picked up some eyeshadow trios as I was most excited about those, but at the launch was given the Coverall Cream foundation in shade medium.  I had a go of it in the comfort of my boudoir and while it was too dark for me, I went out and bought the lightest shade, fair/light, because I was so impressed with the coverage and finish.


Coming in a little plastic squeezy tube, care needs to be taken when squeezing it out on to the back of your hand as it's easy to squirt out too much.  But in saying that, being in a squeezy tube means it's lightweight and perfect for carrying around in your makeup bag or when you're travelling.  It's quite a thick foundation, but smooths easily over the skin.  I use my Real Techniques Buffing Brush to work it into the skin and I'm telling you, for a foundation that's under a fiver, it's fantastic!



Although it's called Coverall, it gives medium coverage but is buildable, without looking cakey.  It evens out my skin, covers redness, gives a satin-matte finish with a hint of a glow and stays put until after lunch time without powder, but if I set it with powder, it stays put for the whole work day.  Of all of the higher coverage foundations I've tried in the past, and I've tried a lot, this one is leaps and bounds ahead of them because as heavy as it is coverage and texture wise, it doesn't look like I'm wearing foundation and it doesn't collect in pores or fine lines.

I love it when a product I know nothing about surprises me like this!  I've been wearing it every day for the past two weeks and even wore it out last weekend.  A measly €4.59 is all this costs and this gets two thumbs up from me!

    1. I know, even in the tube it looks really dark but blends out grand, they definitely need more shades

  9. I was really interested in this, picked it up and put it down several times! Would it cling to dry patches do you think? Looks fab on you x
