Cover girl Queen collection compact foundation is a good buy. The makeup goes on smooth. And it matches my skin tone very well. I like compact makeup. It is not drying like powder nor is it runny as liquid makeup can be. For me compact foundation is the best choice. The makeup hides flaws and gives my skin a youthful glow and a natural look. As a liogt complexioned African American it cna be hard to find the right shade of foundation. either tghey are for hwite complexions or the darkest shades of Black Complexions. Cover girl Queen collection is not simply makeup for White women with Queen Latifah as spokesperson. This has been the case in the past. Queen uses the makeup herself and I can tell that time and attention went into producing what will work for the multi complexioned African American race, I appreciate someone getting it right because I benefit with a complexion that is uniquely my own.
