Wanted: Good product at a great price. Slackers need not apply.
Lately, I have been trying to do more with less. That means my beauty arsenal is being streamlined. My pretty-packaged “slackers” have been kicked to the curb. I have no time, energy or space for anything that does not do its job well.
So, I am excited to tell you about the latest addition to makeup army, Jordana Cosmetics Complete 2-in-1 Concealer & Foundation. This is 1 oz. of product for $3.99. That’s not a typo.
Confession: This was the first time I have tried a foundation under $5. DO NOT let the price scare you away.
This is an oil-free double duty product that feels soft and creamy, and easily conceals dark spots, imperfections, dark circles and redness. It also applies smoothly no matter the method. I tested it with my finger, a sponge, brushes and beauty blender and they all worked well and blended easily. I recommend starting with a small amount because it is concentrated and buildable. But, here’s another confession: I like a little more coverage so I did two full coats.
As if that’s not enough already, this drugstore soon-to-be classic is also long wearing and water resistant.
I love the simple tube packaging because it takes up less room and there is less waste. In the middle of the tube, there is a window and you can see the exact color of the product. The squeeze tube applicator makes it very easy to get the right amount of product out and it’s perfect for travel.
As far as shade selection, I think Jordana did an admirable job with 12 different shades to suit most skin tones. Typically, drugstore brand usually release only 5-7 shades. But if a shade isn’t quite right for you, it’s affordable enough that you can even mix and match two together to create your own unique color.
