Review Overview

We'll admit that the squeeze-tube packaging of this foundation isn't the prettiest around, but the product inside is more elegant than it appears. Coverall Cream Foundation has a fluid, liquid-cream texture that blends smoothly into the skin to impart a natural-looking, satin-matte finish with medium coverage. The shade range spans from fair to tan skin tones, and each shade goes on more natural-looking than it initially appears.

The downside is that this foundation doesn't last all day as claimed … particularly in oily areas. Normal to dry skin types will have better luck, but in either case, try setting this with a pressed powder for longer wear.

One caution: This contains a small amount of the preservative methylisothiazolinone, which is known to be sensitizing and generally is not recommended for use in leave-on products. It's up to you whether or not you want to take that gamble with your skin, but you can always check out our Best Foundations Without Sunscreen list for alternative options that don't contain this preservative.

Pros:
  • Fluid texture meshes well with skin.
  • Natural-looking satin-matte finish.
  • Neutrally flattering shade range.
Cons:
  • Formula fades and breaks down in oily areas.
  • Contains a preservative that's known to be sensitizing.

Brand Overview

Wet 'n' Wild At-A-Glance

Strengths: Inexpensive, good tinted moisturizer with sunscreen; some attractive bronzing powders; mostly good eyeshadow and lipstick options.

Weaknesses: Unimpressive concealers; large assortment of average to poor eyelining products; the mascaras do little to impress; some lip products suffer from the inclusion of irritants; the makeup brushes.

Wet 'n' Wild is one of the few cosmetics companies around that prides itself on being extraordinarily cheap, although the prices have increased across the board since we last revisited this brand. But don't let its hokey name and pre-teen marketing tactics deter you, because there are some great options available, and the packaging has improved in almost every category. The best-performing products will seem like steals, while the less impressive to horrible products will quickly have you thinking, "you get what you pay for." It is not very often that a line offers such a procession of clear-cut winners and dismal losers, but once you know what to focus on, you won't get soaked by Wet 'n' Wild. This line is available in most major drugstores across the country, and, like most drugstore lines, does not offer testers. Interestingly, the selection of Wet 'n' Wild in Canadian drugstores tends to be better than what U.S. shoppers will find.
