Just the Right Glow: CoverGirl TruBlend Blush and Bronzer Swatch and Review

covergirl trublend blush and bronzer review
Have you seen these? I’ve overlooked them for a looong time at the drugstore. When I shouldn’t have. It took CoverGirl sending them to me (for a sponsored post in the fall) for me to really notice them. You can check out that sponsored post here, but they’ve been quietly sitting here on my vanity, being used frequently, ever since. Because they’re kind of amazing.

One of the first things you might notice is that they look a bit… familiar? They remind me a lot of the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish and Mineralize Blush. I don’t use a lot of MAC face products, but anything marbleized with shimmery metallic screams “MINERALIZE” to me. There’s a reason those MAC products have stuck around for so long, is that they’re just so pretty. Super pretty, they make you glowy, they last all day… you get the picture. They’re classics for a reason.

These CoverGirl TruBlends do remind me a lot of the Mineralize products, though they are a little less pigmented and they don’t last quite as long. Think 10 hours instead of 12-14 hours. But, they are just as pretty. And they cost a fraction of the MAC products.

One thing to notice is that the bronzer is pretty golden, and all three do have a subtle shimmer that is just enough to catch the light and look glowy. This means that you’ll get a great sunkissed look with this bronzer, but it wouldn’t work for contouring. As well, even though I’m pretty fair, I mostly use the deep mauve color. With a slightly larger blush brush, this gives me a very pretty look!
