I thought this product blurred my pores and blackheads around my nose and blends really well! My only complaints is the light coverage that does not cover acne scars and I tend to get oily in about 8 hours.
I am so sad this foundation is being discontinued. I never noticed it until the 50% off sticker was slapped on it at CVS. I've wore it for the last 3 days and am officially in love with it. I'm bummed that I didn't find it sooner! I love the texture, it's so smooth and creamy and glides on my skin wonderfully. You can't even tell I'm wearing foundation when I have this on, my skin just looks perfect! I have lupus and mild rosacea and this covers up all the redness perfectly even with out a bunch of concealer. So, I'll say it again, I'm sad to see this one go.
I really enjoy this product, although I'm almost certain that it's being discontinued. The smell doesn't put me off, it's like a cherry-almond smell (think hotel shampoos =] ) and it gives me a really natural finish. I like it better that Maybelline's dream matte mousse, which I find to look somewhat cakey and overdone. A great alternative to this, be it more expensive is L'oreal's Magic Smooth Souffle, or Matte Morphose Souffle in the UK. :)
Great product overall, would definately repurchase.
Love this stuff, I have acne prone oily skin (not insanely oily like I did in my teens, and it is winter her now so that helps)
-matches my skin! these are supposed to be really good at matching your skin tone so try a tester and see how you like it
-blends in beautifully, it feels so soft and smooth
-is very light feeling and comfortable
-love the finish it leaves, lasts long on me, people don't think i'm wearing foundation! and I do not have the best skin, acne scars, red spots, and pimples, yet this helps even those out
-if you have any dry skin exfoliate first, this WILL show any dry flaky parts
-comes in a jar, so watch out for contamination!
-may not last you all day, you may want to blot with blotting papers.
I will get this again, it's great!
I feel like I'm smothering my face with this stuff, even when I'm only using a little bit. I will admit, I found one that matches my skin perfectly, and it does cover everything up. I've experienced a little bit of a break out around my chin, not sure if I can blame it on this, but it is possible. I don't think I will buy it again. I'm sure I can find something better and less cakey.
It made my skin itchy! it blended perfectly but it made me feel uncomfortable with this on my face for some reason!
Oh my this product is so terrible if you have acne prone skin, Most covergirl products are wonderful with my skin, like the clean foundation and powders. But this stuff just created pimples everywhere, I don't think that i've ever been this broken out from a product before it just amplified my acne.
In general, I like this foundation. I chose this one based on Paula B's review that this is a good, cheap drugstore product for normal to oily skin. I chose the shade Natural Ivory, which seems to be a good match for my NW 20 skintone. Overall, this gives me light coverage and blends well with my skin. No breakouts either. It does wear off by the end of the day, but I don't mind that. The reason I gave this a 4 out of 5 is the jar packaging. It's a bit unhygenic. I use a Q-tip to remove the foundation and then I transfer it to a wedge sponge for application. Aside from that extra step, I really like this foundation.
My current foundation. I used to use it in the liquid form, but I found this goes on better, smoother, more subtle, but still with full coverage. It's a decent price for a drugstore brand. The only flaw I have with it is since I'm very pale it can at times, add a tint of yellow to my skin. But, if you have a light powder to set it with, there are no problems.
I would definitely buy this again, and have been for over a year.
Edit: wow, so many people have had bad experience with this stuff. It's been my lifesaver. It is extremely hard for me to find good coverage nongreasy foundations for my pale and at times breakout-prone skin! I'm sorry to all of you who haven't had as great of an experience with this as I have, but I absolutely love it.
I like the jar! It feels glamourous to be using this and applying it. I love the consistency of this makeup. It glides on like a gel/creme and just feels wonderful! I love the color selection too. CG has been doing a good job staying away from orangey-looking colors. I use 420 Creamy Natural and it does a really nice job blending into my skin tone and while decreasing redness around the nose and eyes. I layer a little extra over my undereyes and over old acne scars or discoloration and it looks great! I love this foundation and I really hope they keep this one around! I love the packaging too! It feels very 1940s. I don't know if the experience of applying this would be as good in a pump. I love dabbing it on!
