what i like about this product is that it matches my skin tone well & is really inexpensive. But the packaging is tacky, the sponge applicator is rough & it doesn't provide any protection from the sun.
This is currently the only poweder that I've used for over a year. I don't know why though...it doesn't cover that well. I have to apply several times throughout the day because it gives me that shiny look on my T-zone. After a few times it does look cakey.
I wear buff beige in the powder foundation. THis stuff rocks. It covers well for a powder but doesn't feel like you have anything on now make your face look dry like other powders. I like this whole line of liquid, cream foundation, and the powder. I am acne prone, I have bought this over and over. It also has SPF 15 though you should wear regular sunscreen too. Check out my other reviews. Thanks for this site. I rarely buy a makeup, skin, or haircare product without checking here first.
wow y did this get low ratings
i like it!
its true when they said this covers yet lets ur natural skin color still show..
it does cover decent...and it DOES let my skin color show , which is great cuz even when i get a tan, this powder will still match
im trying to figure out how this formula works
its great, i'll buy again specially at summer
From my past experiences with very oily skin I can not wear a powder foundation very well, until now! Once again I have tried d/s & dept store brands all of them have made my face oilier and pores larger looking except for this one. A follow MUAer recommended it to me & she was right! This is just as good as any dept store-MUFE, EL, LC, PX, Chanel, Clinique and a lot cheaper. I appreciate this product more in the cooler months but I do use it in the heat of the summer as well.
Great powder ! highly recommended it. Its "Oil Control/Fragrance Free", can't go wrong with that. Offers great colors, doesn't cake or turn orange. Also, didn't cause me to breakout. Best of all its unexpensive. I used to buy Lancome "Photogenic", its too expensive for a powder. I like Covergirl overall its so much better.
I liked this a lot! I got it after a failed attempt at using Covergirl Clean... This powder goes on evenly and is a good match for my skin tone. However, I start to get oily about 2 hours after I've put my makeup on, but that's probably because I have really oily teenager skin. All in all, I really like this! I think I'm going to try Outlast next though, and see which one I like better.
I am not a huge fan of CG, but when it comes to their powders...they have some good ones! The Trublend pressed powder is my fav. The color translucent honey is a very pretty match for me. Not enough coverage to wear alone or for major touch ups, but fabulous for finishing foundation in the morning....flawless!! I do recommend a powder brush over the pad though!! It really does standup to department store powders.
Goes on too much, i think. Wont buy because it made me break out EVERY time i used it. I even wore it alone to make sure that was the problem.
It lasts forever though, i never threw it away and it still isnt crumbling, etc.
* got this in translucent light
* i am filipina aab with light-medium skin tone, yellow/slightly peach undertones
-this is great for setting makeup, makes it look more polished
-truly translucent, does not add/change color when layered with other makeup
-evens out skin tone
-does not look powdery or chalky
-controls oiliness but not for very long
-packaging is SO tacky and cheap
-does not give your face a "glowy" look, just a very fresh, clean, slightly polished look (just like the way your face looks after you've just washed it) which can easily be accomplished by blotting with oil-absorbing film
