This foundation broke me out like CRAZY as soon as I started using it I noticed that I was getting all these bumps on forehead and beside my nose. I only used this foundation for maybe a month (not even) but my usually clear skin became a mess! The bumps were everywhere. I've NEVER broken out from a foundation other than this one. As soon as I stopped using it everyone started commenting on how much better my skin was getting and now that I haven't used it for about a month or two my skin has improved a lot but still isn't back to being as flawless as it once was. Also I found that after about 6 hours with this foundation on it made my skin look really oily but flaky at the same time and it would even come off on my hands if I touched my skin! The ONLY thing I liked about this foundation was the pump on the bottle. Other than that it was a huge mistake buying it, never ever again will I buy a foundation that's not oil free.
I have used up an entire bottle of this stuff and am still debating whether I should repurchase.
1. Amazing color selection (805 classic ivory- the lightest shade) was like my skin color in a bottle!
2. Coverage was very decent but I still used a concealer
3. Finish was fantastic!
4. Pump was amazing
5. I applied it with my fingers and it still looked flawless
1. Found myself wasting a lot of product because the pump pumped out way too much
2. Clung to my dry patches
3. On my driest spots it would actually crackle off (on my not dry spots it would go on like a dream)
4. If I went to workout and sweated a little bit, it would come off very easily and wore away quickly
I loved this stuff when my skin isn't as dry (bought this in the early fall or late summer), but for my dry winter skin it really clung to my dry patches. I will probably try a different foundation and buy this again in the spring or summer.
This foundation is the second foundation ive tried in my whole life and the first was the revlon colorstay which i loved but recently broke me out. To begin with it says that it has a lasting power of a primer but note that moisturzing is still a crucial step in using this foundation for i found it too cakey and creases a lot. It says it has a coverage of a concealer, true could be but only for those who have very small imperfections they would like to hide. If you have very red and cystic a acne, this alone will do you no good. I found that putting it on and building a second layer is not ideal because it sets to a matte finish which doesnt blend well with that second layer once its dry, if that makes sense. I do like that its amazingly matte and it does stay matte even on sunny days. Compared to the colorstay this is more presentable after a whole day wherein the colorstay has more of a dewey finish in that case i have oily skin makes it run more and falls off a bit. You can see more transfer of product on the tissue when you pat with the colorstay than the covergirl. Pricewise the covergirl is less pricey than the revlon but almost the same. The packaging is makes it more of an eye catcher because it has a pump. I think after i finish the whole bottle i will try other foundations because as of now i find it has better quality when i mix the revlon colorstay with the covergirl outlast foundation because the revlon gives more coverage and the covergirl makes it matte. :)
I love this foundation! I have oily skin.and.this foundation works great for my skin type. It can be alittle drying at times but nothing major. it also gives a flawless finish without looking like you have make up on.
Great foundation! I have oily skin and I don't have to blot when I wear this, which is amazing. The pump is fantastic and the coverage this foundation provides is exceptional without looking "makeup-y." When paired with my Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc Free Mineral Loose Powder, my makeup lasts my entire work day. I have light skin, and I wear shade number 825, which is buff beige, I believe. It doesn't oxidize on me either, like some of the other reviewers have written. It's easy to remove (unlike Revlon Colorstay, ahem), and it has SPF. Seriously...this foundation has it all and it's inexpensive. Love it!
Ugh, I wanted to love this product so badly, SO badly, and I almost did. The price is perfect. The pump? Perfect. Shade range, perfect. Every single thing this foundation does: medium-high coverage without looking cakey, the fact that it stays matte on my oily as heck skin, and the fact that I barely need concealor (I have both acne and hyper pigmentation) makes this product seem like it fell from heaven. So WHY am I only giving it 3 lippies and WHY will I never repurchase this seemingly-amazing (I've said perfect too many times already) product? I have 2 reasons: 1) This product makes me break out. I don't know how much more I can elaborate on that, but it took maybe a week of using this for me to begin getting cystic acne on my chin. 2) I'm pale. Like, I look like I've never stepped outside of my house before, and even the lightest shades of foundations can sometimes be a shade too dark. That being said, this product oxidizes like CRAZY on me. I've purchased this product twice thinking that maybe the first one I had was faulted, and both ones caused my skin to look a shade or two darker than when I originally put it on. The acne + the darkening of the foundation is the reason why this product isn't my holy grail. If you have medium or darker skin and no acne problems, then this could be the foundation for you. Unfortunately, it just wasn't meant to be for me.
An amazing foundation, with perfect coverage. It is super inexpensive and definitely worth it.
Okay let me start by saying this foundation is perfect. Seriously! Way better than the high end foundations that I've tried. I always get compliments on how flawless my makeup looks. And for the people that are complaining about it looking patchy, try applying it with a flat top brush and blend well. Love this foundation I still have my high end foundations but I always end up reaching for this one instead.
This foundation is the definition of the greatest foundation for me! I have tried expensive makeup in the past, and i regret it because this foundation is cheap and has amazing qualities, which this foundation also beats some expensive makeup foundations for me. This foundation comes with a pump and is in a glass container. 1 FL OZ is the amount given. For me, this liquid is full coverage (if layered), and comes off easily when removed with water and cleanser. The finish on this liquid is a matte finish for me, and this foundation lasts all day for me as well! Also, there is a primer already in the liquid, which can help save cash! The price on this liquid is around $7 at "Target." I recommend this foundation to everyone! Also, this liquid has SPF 20!
okay so i was DESPRERATE to find a foundation that would just work and ive tried most of the brands but i didn't want to spend a fourtune at the time now i've tried foundations and previously i was using the maybelline dream fresh bb cream in light, it just wasn't doing it for me anymore so i decided to go to a different brand all together and i tried covergirl. Of course i did my research on this product and read several reviews now what i can say of this: (my colour is 825 buff beige)
- great packaging
- a lilttle product goes a long way
- thick creamy consistency which i like and you cant feel it on the skin either
- contains spf 20 good for day use, i dont look too great with flash though but its bearable
- MEDIUM-FULL coverage which is great but for tough blemishes a bit more may be needed to conceal
- lasts all day WITH PRIMER
- IT IS SHINE FREE, THISIS MY MIRACLE, i have oily/combination skin and usually need heaps of powder to keep me at least semi-matte with this i dont even need powder AND ITS AUSTRALIAN SUMMER OVER HERE i was shocked at how nice this looked without a powder!
- didnt break me out and i am acne prone!
- it will oxidize a bit so if your buying this choose a lighter shade in your skin tone and if it looks too pale on you fix that with a little bronzer and it works MAGIC!
- shows um dry patches so make sure to exfoliate exfoliate exfoliate and moisterize really well, a primer should help with this issue too
- if not blended well it can look streaky, if using a brush and you see streaks justs go over with a sponge or even your fingers and pat it out.
-will sit in the creases under the eye but ill just use a good concealer and thats dealt with already
i would definately say i LOVE this product and will repurchase even though i did have cons for this product they can be easily dealt with so its not much of an issue at all, over all an amazing product im very happy with it
