CoverGirl Whipped Creme Foundation and Flamed Out Mascara First Impressions!

I know that it has been absolutely ages since I have talked to you guys and I am so sorry for that. School and my personal life have been a bit crazy but I am finally getting back into the swing of things! So here are all of my thoughts on the NEW CoverGirl Whipped Creme Foundation and NEW CoverGirl Flamed Out Max Volume Mascara. For a demo of both products please visit My YouTube Channel :)

CoverGirl Whipped Creme Foundation:
-I purchased shade 320
-I purchased mine at Walmart for $9.99
-When choosing a shade, if you know the color you use in a different type of CG foundation just look at the last two numbers. 220 = 320
-Light/Medium Coverage
-Great for Oily/Combination/Dry Skin types (not extra dry skin)
-Airbrushed effect
-Extremely dry formula (mousse like texture)
-Blends evenly
FINAL THOUGHTS: I was skeptical of this foundation at first, but I really like it! The airbrushed effect is incredible on camera and in photos. It applied evenly and blended seamlessly. The shades are true to their "sister shades" in other CG foundations so finding a shade is easy. A great foundation for all skin types and so different from the Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme foundation!

 Covergirl Flamed Out Max Volume Mascara:
-I purchased shade Black Blaze
-I purchased mine at Walmart for $8.49
-Lengthening and separating, not extremely volumizing
-Dry formula (similar to Lancome Definicils)
-Does not clump
-Very natural lash effect
-Smudged after a few hours (even waterproof formula)
-Wand does not allow use on the lower lashes
FINAL THOUGHTS: Not my favorite mascara, I liked the effect and application at first but the smudging throughout the day was too much. I do not have oily eyelids, so I cannot imagine how this would be on those who do. Too much fuss for such a high mascara price!
