Pros: Excellent color match (Ivory) for my very pale skin. Doesn't rub off. Doesn't feel too greasy or too dry.
Cons: The smell gave me a headache (smells like paint). Didn't cover my rosacea redness well enough. Coverage wasn't buildable.
This product feels very smooth and silky on the skin, but it's difficult to blend. It must be due to the fact that the foundation is suppose to be a primer and foundation in one. For some reason the foundation really collects in my eyebrows and I can't completely blend the product in. I end up having to try to "scratch out" the clumps of foundation that got caught in the hairs. It's very strange.
This foundation looks beautiful and I would have found a way to make it work, however my skin need a product with primer anyway. This would work best for normal skin that can get shiny. I have normal skin that actually developed some dry patches while using this product.
I have acne prone (ugh) oily skin (ugh) and I actually think that out of all the drugstore foundations I've tried, this one works best for my skin type. The unfortunate thing is that even though there are a bunch of different colors to choose from, I can't seem to find a color to match my skin tone! So frustrating... Because otherwise I would really love the product. Sometimes comes out streaky and you can see the redness under the foundation.... Only sometimes, but I guess for the price it does a good job.
I really like this foundation considering that it's from the drugstore. It's probably the only drugstore foundation I've had that I feel comfortable wearing for any occasion. This provides very good coverage, and I love that it has a pump! I wouldn't pay full price for it (which I think is 12-13 bucks) just because if I'm going to spend that much on a foundation I'll pay a few more bucks and get one from the department store. I've found it on sale at Walmart and Target for $7 something which is why I decided to pick it up initially. I heard that it had great reviews, and for the price I figured, why not? As far as the "3 in 1" goes, I don't believe it.. I still HAVE to use concealer, and I always use powder to set liquid foundations. I also can't tell that it provides any sort of "primer." So, with a normal routine of applying powder and concealer, I would say this foundation is great!
Only been using this for two days so far so good! Blends great, does not settle into pores and covers very well. Does not feel gross on my oily skin or get shiny. Revlon colorstay makes my skin look dull and flat and even cakey this does not do that and is almost half the price. Deff my goto drugstore foundation. So far anyways..
I heard all the great reviews about this product but because i have super oily skin i did not think it would work. I used Revlon Colorstay and could never find anything better.
I'm so glad i found this product. Its the best foundation i have ever used and costs half the price of Revlon Colorstay!
If you have oily skin I defiantly recommend this foundation. I would not recommend it for dry skin as when I first put it on it makes my skin look a little dry
I got this Foundation is the second lightest shade, and it's a tad too dark for me still. I haven't had a problem with the turning darker situation, and I think the coverage is outstanding, I think it can look a little cakey at times, so I thin it out with a little bit of moisturizer, I also like this foundation because it doesn't feel heavy, and stays on through all my classes. I also most say I absolutely love that this comes with a pump, I do think it's a little pricey (like $10) so while I was shopping around I found a cheaper foundation that has about the same coverage for $6-$5 cheaper, it's "Rimmel London, Clean Finish foundation" I brought the lightest shade they had in this foundation & it's also too dark, but I find it to be very similar as the "Cover Girl, Outlast Stay Fab. 3 in 1 Foundation" for less money, which is a plus, but not pump. :c It does have a spatular like scooper on it, I'd recommend it if you had $3 to spend. :)
bought this in the lightest color. it matched me well but after 15-20 my face turned into an orange ORANGE cakey streaky mess. it looked super greasy and nasty.
I used a kabuki and tried to buff & blend it but after several minutes I was still oranger than a gossip girl.
coverage isn't great. my red zits were shining through the orange film.
So I wasn't thrilled with this at first. I used my fingers, a flat foundation brush, and a kabuki to apply and didn't really care for it. BUT, I bought a dupe beauty blender at Marshall's and used that to apply it. OMG, love it. It goes on so much better now and I don't even need concealer after and that is saying a lot because I have acne scars all over my face. And this hasn't made me break out which is also saying a lot for me. Will continue to purchase. BTW, the dupe beauty blender is made by Swissco. The manufacturer is on the back (or the side, can't remember) of the package at the bottom. I don't have the original Beauty Blender to compare it to but I don't need it now!
I actually really like this foundation. It took me awhile to find a foundation that blends in with my skin tone because I have pretty fair skin, and when I wear this you can't even tell; so that's a plus. I don't have to cake it on to cover up blemishes. I have an oily t-zone and it helps keep that area matte. I would repurchase!
