Ive tried lots of high end brands. This foundation is confusing simply because it works so well for me and thats just such a big surprise. I never liked CoverGirl because the colors always seemed so pink, but i found a shade with good yellow undertones. It feels very very light. When i use a beauty blender you can't even tell I'm wearing it. My sister told me one day i look so nice when i don't wear makeup but i of course was wearing this! I have very oily skin so i no longer expect a foundation that will magically take away all oil. I have to blot after a little while, but that will happen with ANYTHING i use. I use Lancome Dual finish powder to set this foundation and it looks wonderful.
I love this but I don't think it can handle my oily skin. I still have to touch up w/powder after 3hrs or so. Overall It's still the best liquid foundation I've ever tried. Might try the Revlon one soon.
I swapped this in for my tried and true CG Clean Makeup in the Oil Free formula. I am not impressed at all!
The shade chart is off compared to the Clean makeup line, which I find surprising. My usual Creamy Natural looked way too dark, so I ended up going with the next lightest shade. The color match was alright but a little lighter than my natural skin. If I have to choose between being slightly dark or light in a foundation, I'll go with dark.
I found the application and product itself to be no better than Clean makeup, although I do love the pump. It did not last any longer with the addition of the primer and I found it to oxidize ten times worse than CG Clean makeup. I also experienced more midday oiliness (eww!!).
This was $3 more than any other foundation I've bought from the drugstore and it worked half as well. Maybe I will dump out what is left and use the pump bottle for my CG Clean makeup, which I have gone back to using with excellent results.
i bought this in the shade golden tan. i have combination skin i tend to get oily throughout out the day. this applies perfectly. i used a stippling brush for more fuller coverage. the downside to this foundation is that it oxidizes quickly. i looked orange after a couple hours. i tried using it with a primer under neath but it still oxidized. ill just stick to my loreal true match
This is a great everyday foundation. Good medium coverage, not too dry, not too shiny, just right on my skin.
The best every day foundation for so many reasons!! Coverage is amazing!!! I have blemish prone skin and it covers all my red marks like a dream! Price is great!! And is always on sale at princeline (for Australians) and it is so long wearing I never need to touch up my make up when wearing this even after a full day at work. My favourite drug store foundation money can buy.
I really love this foundation. I always have stayed away from covergirl products as none of them really sparked interest in me. I was using the Maybelline 24 Hr Superstay previous to using this. I am so thrilled I decided to try this foundation after seeing and hearing so many rave reviews about this. The cover is medium-full, depending how you apply it. If you use a beauty blender, it will sheer it out more, and if you use a dense brush it will provide full coverage. It does last a very long time, and I don't get shiny from this foundation.
The only con about this foundation is the color range, it's not that great. Especially the undertones are usually either pink or neutral, not yellow at all. Also, this foundation oxidizes throughout the day, so buy a shade or two lighter!
I'm about an NC 30 in Mac and I use Nude Beige in the winter, and Medium beige in the summer time when I'm tanner.
Omg! I am so done with being a foundation snob. The amount of money i have wasted on high end foundations only to be dissapointed and looking for the next best thing. I did not have high expectations for this foundation but i am blown away. The finish is amazing and it has fantastic staying power. I highly recomend over other long wearing foundations, even estee lauder doublewear!
This foundation has great coverage, amazing lasting power, and leaves skin looking smooth and matte all day. Unfortunately the lightest shades aren't great matches for me because they oxidize a little. I also find that even though it has great lasting power, it does wear away in some areas when I sweat. Also, don't be fooled; just because it has a pump doesn't mean you'll be able to use up every last drop. The pump doesn't reach all the product, so it's hard to completely use it up.
Definitely a good drugstore foundation that everyone should try. I used to steer clear from cover girl foundations as they all had a strong perfume smell and didn't work on my skin at all, but then I saw all the you tubers raving on about it so I gave it a go and was pleasantly surprised. Awesome coverage, awesome staying power and so easy to blend. Easily compatible to EstÃ©e Lauder double wear except this foundation transfers extremely easily which is honestly the only downfall. And it didn't break me out, woo! 100% recommend :)
