Last week at CVS they had Covergirl on sale, and I had a coupon for buy one get one free, so I took a chance and bought Covergirl Trublend foundation and Trublend shimmery blush (pictured at right) as well as an eyeshadow for under $4 total (regular prices totaled $18 for all). I tried them all and LOVE them. The foundation wears as well as Clinique and even matches my skin better. The shimmery blush looks natural as well! I paid 10% of the price, and saved $38 or more. If you are looking for a good substitute for department store makeup, I would check out Covergirl Trublend.
