For too long, multicultural women and their skin weren’t catered for in the makeup world, especially when it came to foundation. So COVERGIRL listened and created TRUBLEND MATTE MADE: a foundation made for the unique needs of multicultural skin, in 40 beautiful shades. 

COVERGIRL created TRUBLEND MATTE MADE, but can’t take the credit. The credit goes to the infinite women who spoke up and voiced their skins’ unique needs. So COVERGIRL thanked them in this commercial--with the help of Droga5 NY and director Kim Gehrig of production house Somesuch.

The spot, which ends with a lengthy list of the “infinite” number of women who reached out to COVERGIRL, shows this diverse mix of females--from woman to woman to woman. And it culminates in a final dramatic stairwell shot that brings all the women together as one. Appearing on TV as a :15 and online as a longer cut, it’s an authentic yet elevated glimpse of the women who inspired TRUBLEND MATTE MADE as they go about their everyday lives.
