Covergirl Clean Whipped Creme Foundation

The Clean Whipped Cream Foundation is the latest foundation release from Covergirl: a lightweight, air-whipped formula that instantly hydrates, giving the skin a smooth natural look without any dryness.  Although I have oily skin, I was curious about this product and wanted to give it a try.

Swatched: Shade 320 ‘Creamy Natural’


Before and After: Wearing CoverGirl Clean Whipped Creme Foundation in shade 320 Creamy Natural


CoverGirl says: “Our lightweight whipped créme foundation gives your skin a boost of moisture without the greasy, shiny finish.  You’ll love the dreamy, 100% breathable formula that leaves your skin looking smooth, natural, and matte.”

Formula  |  Pigmentation

The consistency of Covergirl Clean Whipped Creme foundation is near mousse-like in consistency, although not quite as “airy” as the Revlon Colorstay Whipped (which feels more whipped to me).  It is very smooth, yet dense feeling and still lightweight.  In choosing a shade, I want to note that the shade name was not listed on the displays that I found, only the number on the foundation itself.  I took a guess when it came to choosing this shade with the help of the shade I know that works for me in the CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous Foundation which is 820.  I noticed the shades seemed to coincide somewhat, so I chose “320”.  Both shades are called “Creamy Natural”, and a visit to the site confirms that the shade names do coincide.  This product has no scent, and does not have an SPF rating.

Application  |  Longevity

The foundation applies very smoothly, and not a lot of product is needed to cover the face.  The coverage is light to medium build-able, and in the photo above I have one layer applied over the entire face, with additional product on my nose and cheeks.  I like to apply this foundation best with the Beauty Blender, as I feel the thicker consistency benefits from a dampened sponge to even it out and gives a nice natural finish.  Using a flat kabuki-style brush will achieve closer to a full coverage look with this foundation, although I did still feel the need to cover spots with concealer, so I cannot see this as being full coverage.  The foundation is lightweight and looks natural on the skin, giving it a slight matte finish that is very complimentary.  Although my skin is oily, I wanted to try this foundation out to see how it might work for me.  I have some dry patches from skin treatments and healing blemishes, and I found the foundation was hydrating enough it did not accentuate those dry spots.  The finish is very smoothing, blurring pores and softening my wrinkles as well.  I really like the initial finish on my skin, but because of my skin type, after approximately 3 hours I begin to get oily and needed to blot, therefore I require the use of a mattifying primer as well as to powder on top to make it last longer.


Overall this is a beautiful foundation with a very natural and lightweight finish.  I think those with dry, normal/dry skin through combination would love this one.  I don’t find it is my favorite foundation because of my skin type, but if you also have oily skin you may still like it if you do not mind adding a few products to make it wearable.  (Or I would definitely recommend the CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous Foundation to you if you have not tried that out yet!)

  1. I tried the little sample at the drugstore and I felt like it sheered out quite easily. I’m glad to hear it actually is buildable!! I have considered picking it up.

      Hi Arielle! The foundation does appear a bit more sheer when blended with the fingers, and I think I will go ahead and modify my review a bit to say you can achieve close to a full coverage using different tools, but I have always needed to use concealer in spots even when I build it up more, so it is possibly not actually full coverage. 🙂 I can’t wait to hear your thoughts if you pick it up to review! 🙂
