I have mixed feelings about this foundation. I wouldn't say it is comparable to high end like many reviewers have said. The price is CHEAP which is nice, but sometimes you do get what you pay for. The color selection is not good. It is either very pink or very yellow. I have fair skin but with more of a yellow undertone so I chose I believe the nude color. It oxidized a lot so I looked yellow orange and my mom even commented on this that it was too yellow. As far as the texture that was nice and the coverage was not bad. I did not break out either. I had this particular foundation with me when I went on a recent vacation and in the pics I looked ok but a tad orange. So maybe if I tried a different color it might work better for me but i just didn't want to waste my time. I can see this product being amazing for some if they find a color match because the price is so cheap.
I can literally claim that I have used hundreds of brands of foundation. My skin is oily and almost NC30/35 but not as yellow. I have some olive in my skin and the best match of color is usually in the tan area. I bought this in Medium Tan for $2 from Rite Aid. The shade looked darker in the tube. When I bought it, I did not have high hopes. I tried it on my primer and loved it. The coverage is buildable. I have also used this without the primer and despite my skin oiliness, I have been happy as to its staying power. The shade of Medium Tan is so complimentary that I have never been able to find it in another brand. The texture is beautiful and soft. It does not get into the pores or fine lines and make them larger or exaggerated. Totally recommend this to all!
First off I loved this foundation! The fair shade matched my fair yellowed undertones skin so perfectly, blended beautifully, and the best part it was so inexpensive and the packaging was compact. It was my HG foundation up until I broke out like crazy.. My skin care routine hasn't change, except my foundation.. I gave this a 4 because aside from it breaking me out I loved it. Maybe it can work for someone with less acne prone sensitive skin.
This product is OKAY. nothing special for me like all of the other reviews on here. Coverage IS medium to full like it says, but the product emphasizes any lines or pores in my face and i didnt even know I had any! The texture feels pasty and dries soooo quick. I will say that it looked better when i put a loose powder over it. It smells kind of plasticy or something I cant really describe it, but it does go away after it dries. I'll use the rest of it up but most likely I wont buy it again because I know theirs got to be a better one out there.
I first used this a couple months ago and was very impressed. Really great coverage, the fair shade is actually light enough for me, and it goes on smoothly and blends well. I'm always on the lookout for the best foundation out there so I've strayed a bit from this. I tried Kat Von D's foundation, NARS sheer glow, and Lorac Natural Performance foundation lately and I actually prefer Coverall over any of these! And it's only like $3-4!
This foundation is the best foundation I have used by far! In consistency, it is similar to Physician's Formula Youth-boosting mousse foundation, but it does not break me out like the former, nor does it cause dry patches of skin in my t-zone and dryer areas. What amazes me is how natural the skin looks after applying this foundation! No cakiness whatsoever, and a very decent coverage that lasts all day. With the addition of the coverall powder, which I buff on lightly with a bronzing brush, I get a poreless, creamy canvas for my make-up routine. Packaging wise, it is simple and sleek like most Wet n' Wild packaging, and honestly, I prefer that...many higher end products are packaged in very serious and mature packaging that repells me. Bottom line, a great price and quality coexist here and I really hope the company never discontinues this.
This is one of the best foundations I have tried, it beats Nars sheer glow, Dior Skin nude and well basically anything else I own at the moment. I wore this for 7 hrs and I didn't need to touch up once. It hasn't broken me out and the coverage is medium to full (full w/ 2 applications). I have dark circles and I needed a concealer for that.
I wanted to try this because I love wet n wild and I am honestly surprised at the quality of this cream foundation.
The packaging is cheap but sanitary. I honestly don't care about the packaging though, whats inside is amazing.
I am a mac nc 42 and I chose tan. The shade matched me perfectly. I hope wet n wild provides darker colors for the coverall because it should be available for everyone to enjoy.
I really don't know what else to say
-nice satin finish
-med to full coverage
-didn't break me out
-I didn't get oil and I ALWAYS get oily
-shade matched me perfectly
Its worth picking up for the insanely cheap price
This stuff is ok. It's dirt cheap and that is always a plus. I think for the price it's a great deal. But the actual product is just average. But I have tried much, much more expensive foundations that were also just average. The coverage is medium. The color selection is awful. If you can find a color match then give this a try. The wear was ok. I have oily skin so even with an excellent primer I get shiny pretty quickly with this foundation. I think the only foundation that left me matte and fresh for hours and hours was the Covergirl Outlast 3 in 1 but I couldn't get a color match to save my life. All in all this is a good product for the price and I like the squeeze tube it comes in.
Wow, I haven't been this initially pleased with a foundation in I don't know how long! I typically buy one, feel like I've already tried 2 others JUST like it, then after a little time decide if I love or hate. My love for this new "CoverAll" was instant though and after 1week of daily wear I'm still pleased!
For reference I'm 30 years old w/very fair, neutral undertoned(leaning warm), oily & clog-prone skin. I'd read a few raves regarding this fndtn on the boards & beauty blogs (it was being especially loved by those with fair & oily skin) but I still walked past it several times in the drugstore without giving it a 2nd look.. I figured I had enough fndtns & didn't need a new one to risk a breakout from. I did purchase the CoverAll Pressed Powder when it came out and have been happy with it, but it's more of a full coverage powder & I personally go for a light coverage "nautral" look on a daily basis since getting my skin cleared up recently (thanks to the MUA boards!) So it's not going to be my Holy Grail of pressed powders, but is still nice none the less especially for the price. &The "Fair" color in the Pressed Powder is a great match for me.
Then last week my daughter was admitted into our local Children's Hospital which is 2hrs from my home & I needed to make a quick trip to CVS(for some feminine products, which is only a few blocks away from the hospital) While I was there I remembered I didn't have any makeup w/me so purchased this foundation in Fair/Light for $4.99. I was perplexed bc it appeared the lightest shade was Fair/Light, so that was what I got of course but I remembered reading on the MUB that there was a Fair shade (like the powder has) which matched those of us who are lighter than NC15 in MAC(I'm currently N10-ish but can pull off NC15 at my darkest. I also wear N1 in L'Oreal True Match which is my *perfect* fndtn shade) Now that I'm back at home & have done a lil digging I've found that there is indeed a shade called Fair but for whatever reason it's not carried everywhere which sucks :( I'm not going to hold that against WnW/this review though bc it's the individual stores that chose which shades they want to carry/think will sell & not the choice of WnW (or at least that's how I've come to understand it?)
Once I got in good lighting Fair/Light looked REALLY dark in the tube but to my surprise it's not terribly dark at all! Granted it's not my "perfect" match, but it works. I'd describe Fair/Light as a mostly neutral undertoned shade. I would LOVE to get my hands on Fair to compare the two though so plan to go searching for it soon, but until then Fair/Light does the trick &even looked good under the terrible flourescent hospital lighting (which we all know is NOT always flattering) So I really feel that what the shades look like in the tube is not accurate to how they look on the skin.
My next concern was breakouts.. My skin is so finicky & picky, so the "generally loved" fndtns on the Makeup Board & blogs are usually ones I can't wear without my skin freaking out =( But the ingredient list for this looked fairly safe and after 1wk of continued use I'm happy to say that I still do not have any new acne, clogged pores, or blackheads -WooHoo!
For those interested, the ingredient list is as follows (typed out from the back of my bottle because I couldn't find it elsewhere online lol)
water, cyclopentasiloxane, isododecane, talc, butylene glycol, cetyl peg/ppg-10/1 dimethicone, glycerin, phenyl trimethicone, peg/ppg-18/18 dimethicone, dimethicone, hexyl laurate, polyglyceryl-4 isostearate, propylene carbonate, silica, dimethicone crosspolymer, disteardimonium hectorite, magnesium aluminum silicate, sodium chloride, lecithin, chlorphenesin, 3-0-ethyl ascorbic acid, bisabol, dimethicone/vinyl dimethicone crosspolymer, propylene glycol stearate, dipotassium glycyrrhizate, tocopheryl acetate, tetrahhexyldecyl ascorbate, polysorbate 20, propylene glycol laurate, dimethiconol, sorbitan laurate, methylisothiazolinone, titanium dioxide/ci 77891, iron oxides/ci 77491, ci 77492, ci 77499
I feel that anyone w/normal, combo, or oily skin (that can find a color match) will really love this foundation. Those with drier skin, I don't know.. Maybe with a good moisturizer it'd work? I'm not a great judge of things like that since my skin type is on the other side of the spectrum but I can say that the 1st time I tried it I didn't moisturize well & noticed a few flakies around my nose..(we all know about those dreaded "winter skin flakies" right? *UGH*) So before the 2nd use I moisturized a little better &didn't use my mattifing primer underneath and voila - perfection & love at first sight! I walked away & didn't see myself in a mirror again for at least 8hrs, but when I did was pleasantly surprised that it had not separated, caked, oxidized away, or done anything! It looked freshly applied & I didn't even need to blot which is pretty great.
The coverage is what I'd describe as medium but buildable and that's ideal for me so CoverAll is definitely ranking up there as one of my favorite fndtns. Will it be "holy grail status" for me? I won't know for sure til the humid summer weather rolls back around. This time of year my Tzone is oily, but other areas of my face are more "normal" than anything else so I don't need a ton of oil control. In the summer however, my skin becomes a MESS and too many foundations just slide away after an hour or two.. So I'm still looking for that "year round HG fndtn"*fingers crossed* I do hope to update this in a few months when the weather warms up though!
In the mean time, this totally deserves more than 5 lippies in my opinion. I highly recommend it, especially when you consider the price. For $3-5 it's not a huge investment, and if you really dislike it, most drugstores allow open cosmetic returns with a receipt (CVS & Walmart do) So it's worth a try, great job Wet 'n Wild!
**Update -- I found the "Fair" shade at KMart just like a reviewer b
So far I think I like it and would buy this again. I was So excited to try this! I bought mine in the lightest shade "fair 815" and its a VERY pale shade..doesnt look pink or yellow its very neutral toned. Im about an NC5 (definitely lighter than NC15) and this matched great, infact it was almost TOO light but it blended into my skin nicely! It definitely is a cream foundation, it was a little tough blending because of its thick consistency (a little goes a long way). I think the packaging is ok but I wish the hole where you dispense the product was a little smaller because you have to be careful not to squeeze out a huge blob of it!
The ONLY thing I really dont like about this foundation is that ...it smells like paint! Very very much like paint!!! It goes away after its on your face but you definitely get a nice wiff of it when you dispense it. There is no 'fragrance' in it so im guessing its just the way this foundation smells 'naturally'. It reminds me of mac studio fix fluid which I also thought smelled weird like paint.
This foundaiton will be best suited for DRY skin types I think because there is a TON of dimethicone in it which is a moisturizing agent. But you will still need to moisturize beforehand etc.
shade match for very pale skin
didnt get oily
skin feels smooth
Smells like paint when first applied
dispenser nozzle hole is really big (dispense product carefully!)
