Review: Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Oil-Free Foundation in 105 Classic Ivory

It’s been a while since I made a foundation review. It takes time to decide which ones to buy. What I look for in face makeup: lightweight, oil free and stays in place the whole day. I found out about Covergirl’s Ready Set Gorgeous line when I visited their PH Facebook page. The prices of this line caught my attention. They’re all below 500 pesos. I watched reviews on Youtube that convinced me to buy one.


Get insta-gorgeous with Ready Set Gorgeous! This liquid foundation’s oil-free formula provides medium coverage to even skin tone and cover imperfections. The result is a flawless, natural look that lasts all day.

The built-in powder system fights against shine, pulling oil and sweat AWAY from your face instead of trapping them under your foundation. Pair with the entire instaGLAM collection for a glam look on the go.

This doesnt give enough coverage for me. Note that I’m applying it using my finger. I dont have a brush and I’m always in a rush. Wait…. that rhymed. Haha! Youtubers prefer to apply this using a stippling brush. It gives light to medium coverage depending on how you apply it. It’s thin, sets and dries quickly. You have to blend it quickly. It can accentuate pores and texture like small bumps. It oxidizes on me just like other water-based liquid makeup. It turns really dark on me after a few minutes like I’m oompa loompa. There’s only 2 shades here in the Philippines and this is the lightest. It has pink undertone.


You can use it all up buy cutting the plastic tube. It also has a light powdery scent that goes away quickly. I like that it’s lightweight. Skin still feels like skin after application, no stickiness. I used this foundation almost everyday before and it didn’t trigger my contact dermatitis. It doesnt make my skin oiler. It actually controls oil production for a few hours. This is ideal for oily skin. I preferred matte finish before. But now that I’m almost in mid 20s, I’m starting to have a mix of dry and oily areas. In short, I have combination skin. Matte finish can make anyone look sick when it’s applied on the wrong skin type. If you’re planning use this, bring back the color with blush, lipstick and highlight. It stays in plays all day especially when set with powder or spray.
