This stuff is so shimmery!! Ahh. it's crazy. And when you close the top powder flies out everywhere. Other than that it's okay. I will not repurchase.
I am very disappointed with this...DO NOT BUY! It has a lot of unless sparkle making me look like I was dipped in sugar like edward cullen or something. It doesn't cover much. No I just don't like it. The packaging is horrible. I am so going to return this.
This was my HG loose powder for a long time! I am a NC42 and I used the translucent fair. (405) The colours run a bit darker in my opinion and this one suited me perfectly in the wintertime, it was a tad light for me in summer. I have quite a few acne scars and this on top of my Mac Studio Finish concealer gave me a flawless look. My friends would always comment on how great my skin looked and some people I met would have never known I have acne prone skin with terrible scars. I would always get asked what I was wearing because people said it matched my skin tone so perfectly, I could even look at my face in the mirror in the car with no shame because my skin looked that good!
It never gave me a single pimple and one jar lasted me a long long time, I'm talking like almost 2 years with almost everyday use in winter and autumn/fall. I used my Ecotools kabuki to apply this and it blended beautifully. I didn't like the packaging, (this is the first loose powder I ever used to I don't know if all loose powder packaging sucks or it's just this one) I would just shake a little into the lid and then use it straight from the lid. I never had to touch my face up at all during the day.
One thing I didn't like at first about this is the sparkles, after a while I noticed my fingers and arms were sometimes sparkly from touching my face. It never appeared sparkly at all in the mirror though, well simple fix I just stopped touching my face. (which I shouldn't be doing anyway)
I think it's been discontinued in Australia cause I can't find it anymore. I saw its still available in the USA so I am definitely getting some on my trip in November,
I recently started wearing makeup and im not a fan of compact powder so i bought loose powder. I saw that this was cheap so I went to buy it.
When i opened it, powder just spilled everywhere o__e but i thought "hey, i never tried it" So the next day I wore this over my foundation. I have dry skin but oily T-zone so i just lightly dusted some there.
IT DOES NOTHING FOR THE OIL. It sinks in to by makeup making it look cakey and my t-zone is still very oily. I am hoping to find a better one next time.
Not a HG for me, but wearable enough that I'll finish the package. I, too, got the translucent fair and found it to be neither translucent nor fair. However I've eschewed the puff in favor of a kabuki brush and that blends it out well enough that I can wear it. It leaves a nice soft look and it lasts a long time. Not a rebuy though, since I have to put in extra work to avoid the dreaded tan face/white neck look.
I am so bummed that I splurged on this product. I say splurge because it was over $10, which I feel is quite expensive for a drugstore powder. I got it in translucent fair, and let me tell you, it is neither translucent nor fair. It is terribly orange/pink! I didn't notice shimmer like others have, but that's probably because I immediately washed my face. I am returning this to CVS first thing tomorrow.
I feel like Cover Girl products have really declined over the years. They used to market primarily to a younger demographic (teens and early 20's), now they appear to be targeting both the young (nature luxe line) and old (simply ageless). I think they should just stick with the classics. I love their classic loose powders and clean foundations, but most of their other "trendier" products just suck.
I never liked this product. I have it in 415 translucent medium, and it was one tone darker than my natural skin tone, so I ended up using this as a bronzer. I didn't like how it had a lot of glitter in the powder. The case wasn't very durable either. The plastic easily cracked after a few falls. The dispenser holes were also too large and too much powder came out as a result.
I'm hearing alot of mixed reviews on this product and i have to say im somewhere in the middle...i bought this powder many times, and i was quite contempt. It is true, however, that if you apply it then apply it again and again, you will eventually be pretty sparkly. One thing i HATE about this product, though, is good luck trying to put on shirts without it getting it everywhere if it so much as touches your face! other than that, the coverage is good, but the shades it comes in aren't very impressive. It also makes a mess if you spill it! I used to use this product alot, but i think i'll move on.
I've had a love/hate relationship with Covergirl TruBlend Minerals Loose Powder for years. If you apply it lightly, it doesn't look caked on and it actually has very good coverage by itself. If you don't have many blemishes or you just have some minor skin discoloration, this powder will cover it by itself and you can skip the foundation. The thing I don't like is that it doesn't last very long. I find that when I use this powder, I'll have to reapply/touch-up every hour or two. I've used other powders that last for 4+ hours and keep my face looking matte and shine-free. One thing I don't like about this powder is that it seems to have an orange tint no matter what shade I buy, so I have to really use it sparingly. I would suggest this powder to someone that wants a full coverage powder that is able to touch-up their makeup every couple hours. If you are going out for the night or are going to be out for an extended period of time without being able to touch-up here and there, I'd suggest going with another powder.
I'm not to interested on buying CG products coz stuff I get from them seems to be the worst in my stash that I don't reach for them at all. The only thing I love from them is their Blush singles called Tru Cheeks I think. The Advanced Radiance Cream foundation, Lipslicks, TruBlend minerals Blush and Loose Powder...oh my God...these are items that didn't work for me however I wanna give them a chance (coz I spent full price!) I didn't notice that glitter overload of this TruBlend Powder when I tried it at the store because of the lighting I guess. I thought it just look glowy and healthy so I tried it. Once used as a finishing powder, geezz, I looked like an oxidized-shimmering-fresh from the beach tanned girl! I like wearing shimmery/gliterry eyeshadows, but glitter all over my face is the last thing I would use to finish my face. The same thing with the TruBlend Blush, I had Shimmering Sands, it's a gorgeous color but I don't see myself wearing it unless I'm at the beach for a sunkissed look...and I'm not a beach loving person. This products may work for others, I'm not saying they're 100% terrible. 'Just not for me :(
