This makes it a great foundation for any type of skin for less than $12.00.
Cover Girl Ultimate Liquid Powder Make-Up is another great makeup foundation that cost wells under $12.00. I originally tried this product because of a commercial. Yes, we all see the adds with the fourteen year old girls with flawless skin applying foundation, but for some reason this product looked new and interesting to me so I decided to give it a try. The price was right at about $7.50. Anything that comes in at under $10 and looks promising is always worth a shot in my book. I also tried Cover Girl Ultimate Liquid Powder Make-Up because it promised to be a foundation and powder in one. For anyone who is not too into applying makeup, this is a great feature.
