I liked it, although the color was too dark for me (Soft Honey). At first application it seemed like the right shade (considering it is the color I use with my Covergirl Oil Control Foundation), but it got darker, but it is medium-full coverage. Also, it clung to my dry patches. It keeps me matte for a while, but then gets a tad bit shiny (Which I prefer. I don't like completely matte foundations). I would honestly repurchase it. Just get two or three shades lighter!

This matched my summer color perfectly! It's not cakey it has a naturally finish and is very buildable. It claims to be very lasting which I think it does a good job of. Usually by 2 pm or 3 pm I do notice oil. My nose gets very oily! So I do have to set it with a powder and blot in the middle of the day. I love that it comes with a pump, it is a little messy I have product all over the cover. Really is an affordable foundation! Overall I was satified.

Coverage was good, but the formula did not jive with my skin type. It made my face look really dry and chalky. I did like a pump and the product did not give my acne-prone skin any issues with clogs or breakouts.

So I'm obsessed this foundation is amazing it lasted a really long time and my skin didn't get oily as quick I applied with a beauty aping it said to be a concealer and I prime I still wore a primer under it though but it has a nice build able coverage and it did conceal it also as a nice pump so I don't waste so much product

I've been purchasing this product for almost a year now and it's my favorite drugstore foundation! I've noticed that after a couple hours of wearing it, my face turns orange. that might just be the shade I'm using. the packaging is the best part of the whole thing, all you do is pump and you aren't wasting any product. it lasts me all day and I usually wear my makeup 8 hours every day. great coverage (( acne prone skin ))

This is my favorite foundation that I reach for time and again. I am always in a rush and typically am doing my makeup at the gym after having showered, I bring this foundation with me because it is reliable- it looks so good, is easy to apply, and lasts all day. I never worry about how it will look because it holds up to sweat in the gym, being outside in heat, as well as cold weather without making my skin flaky.

Finish: This foundation is a matte finish without looking totally flat. There isn't a dewy or glowy radiance to it, however your skin will look like it is matte but natural and believable like you aren't wearing a lot of base.

Coverage: I would call this foundation a medium-full coverage. I only use one layer of product. I always still apply under eye concealer because I have dark purplish circles and I like the look of a highlighted concealer. I don't usually need additional concealer on spots on my face (like post acne marks) unless I get an occasional red raised pimple, which in that case I use my MAC Studio Finish concealer to cover it. For comparison I also have the Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo foundation which provides a true full coverage (and I also really enjoy that foundation but find it too heavy in the summer) and the Cover Girl 3 in 1 has a little less coverage than that.

Application: On the go and in a hurry I apply with my hands and it looks great. I used to use a BB but found it applied too sheer with it. I've used an ELF flat top brush and it was good, but I preferred my hands over that method because of the natural hair bristles it may have absorbed product and not given me the fullest coverage. (Note: I just started using my Real Techniques Expert Face brush more often and find that applying foundation with that brush in stippling motions provides great coverage- but haven't tried it with the 3 in 1 yet). Honestly I love how it looks just applied with fingers.

Other foundations I have tried: Kat Von D, MUFE HD, L'Oreal Lumi, L'Oreal True Match, NARS Sheer Matte, CG Clean, Maybelline Fit Me, Maybelline BB Pure, Garnier BB cream,

Foundation Ranking Top 5- CG 3 in 1, CG Ready Set Gorgeous, Kat Von D, Garnier BB Cream. I also liked the Maybelline Dream Pure BB and finished a whole tube but haven't repurchased.

Try this foundation if you like a matte finish! It lasts all day and doesn't require a touch up. I do set this with a light dusting of powder even though my skin is normal-dry. I have repurchased this in varying shades depending on my skin tone at the time about 7-8 times over the past 1+ years.

I am NC15 and find 810 Classic Ivory looks nice but does oxidize a bit pink. My favorite shade I've tried is 825 Buff Beige.

I think this is a real nice option for normal / combination skins, it is creamy , goes on smooth, but for my normal/dry skin, it leaves my skin feeling a bit too tight, so I feel if I use it every day, in the end it will dry out my just isn't that comfortable on my face.then it seems to amplify pores and I think it is a good cheap option, but for me, just not hydrating enough...the color choice is good too...and the coverage is medium, so definitely good for those who need to cover imperfections.

This foundation, a long with Revlon Colourstay, is probably the best drugstore foundation available.

Price: Inexpensive. You can buy this from Priceline or any department store for about $19 AUD

Staying power: I have oily skin and this stays on my face all day. I usually use a setting powder but I don't need to with this. The finish is pretty much matte.

Coverage: I have bad acne scars and active pimples and this does a really good job at masking them. This is definitely more of a full coverage kind of foundation, and it is buildable.

You can also use this as an under-eye concealer as well. Just dab a bit under your eye and blend, it works well.

I would highly recommend.

bought this like 5 shades lighter than my skin tone (there was only like 4 shades left on the shelf) and the staying power isn't bad, my skin is extremely oily and EVERY foundation and powder I use always slides off no matter what. the finish is matte so i would recommend if you have oily to combination and normal skin. it also provides medium coverage

I've already bought this multiple times throughout this year. I've recently stopped using it cause I ran out and wanted to try a new foundation. I picked this up after getting tired of my Revlon whipped foundation and fell in love. it gives such a great coverage and settles nicely if applied in a even layer. I found that I can be a little heavy and it sometimes accentuates my dry patches. I'm very very oily so I do feel like his helps hides that for the most part. Of course after 8-10 hours it'll show some shine but not an unbearable amount. I do wish it was slightly cheaper. I'm also normally a NC20 and my shade that matched me was classic ivory but I sometimes found it a tad bit light.
