I have this in 810, Classic Ivory. The color matches me perfectly. It is the slightest bit lighter than my skin when i first apply it, but by the time I'm all done it looks absolutely perfect. It does oxidize a bit, so I would recommend going a shade lighter than you think you are, just to be safe. If it's still too light after it oxidizes, you can always warm up your complexion with some bronzer or a darker powder.
- Lasts all day long. I put this on at about 6am before school, and by the time I'm home, which is about 3, it looks the same way it did when I walked out the door in the morning!
- Oil control! Holy moly! I have extremely oily skin, and for me to only have to lightly blot just around my nose mid-day is truly remarkable!
- Shade matches perfectly
- Decently priced. I have found this at around $10 at Walmart, and ranging to about $13 elsewhere. Find a coupon in your paper to get a buck or two off!
- The coverage is amazing for a drugstore foundation.
- It surprisingly doesn't break me out! I have such terrible skin, it doesn't tolerate anything, and it does fine with this!
- The pump! <3 That thing is a life saver!
- Super easy to blend!
- Natural matte finish that lasts
- Doesn't have that weird paint smell like Revlon CS.
- I can't even think of any.
Compared to Revlon Colorstay:
- Outlast is cheaper, blends easier, doesn't smell as bad, and doesn't feel like a mask.
Compared to Estee Lauder Double Wear
- About 1/3 of the price, same coverage, same finish, and same lasting power.
I would definitely recommend this product; This is my new HG foundation! continued >>
This foundation is actually nice for such a cheap drugstore brand. The coverage is pretty full and the feel is pretty heavy. Overall the foundation was too heavy for me and way too much coverage but it did give a nice finished look with a pretty matte finish.
I wouldn't recommend this foundation to anyone with dryer skin as the heaviness of the concealer and foundation in one can look a bit cakey if you have dryer areas on your face. I also wouldnt recommend to anyone with sensitive skin as it does have a slight fragrance and also i found that the SPF was a bit irritating towards my skin (although i am hypersensitive)
The foundation overall is a good buy if your looking for a heavier, matte and perfected makeup look.
Like i said the only reason i wouldn't buy again is because it is too heavy for my skintype and sensitivity.
What a great cheap foundation . I was using Mac studio fix before this but cover girl 3 in 1 stay fab foundation is way better and way cheaper. I apply it with a damp beauty blender . Words cannot explain how much I love this AND I SAVE SO MUCH MONEY !
This is a pretty decent foundation for a drugstore brand. I took Cover Girl's color match questionnaire on their website and found the shade that best suits me (Soft Honey). Must moisturize first though for those of you with dry skin before applying because it's super matte.
This review is for the Covergirl Queen 3 in 1 all day flawless foundation. My shade is Golden Honey.
This foundation is the best I've tried to date! The consistency is creamy, but dries to a natural finish. The coverage is moderate to full--less than a pump covers my entire face including dabbing extra on blemishes and under eye circles. The feel of it is light--like you aren't wearing anything at all. It doesn't crease in my smile lines--a big pet peeve of mine. Most importantly, I work in healthcare, so I wear a face mask 85% of the day, and with almost every other foundation I've tried, my nose is completely void of make up by lunch time. With this foundation I can go all day without touch ups, and still look flawless at quitting time!
The lid on the bottle is janky. That's my only complaint about this product.
First off, this is pretty pricey for a drugstore makeup - especially CoverGirl brand. Even taking into consideration the 3-in-1 aspect, it is still too pricey. Especially when it turned me orange and made my skin itch. Would not buy again. Back to Revlon--it is about the same price and is good to my skin and performs better for me with keeping shine at bay and does not turn me orange like this CoverGirl did. At least I was able to return this. Thank goodness!
Let me start by saying I HATE covergirl but I LOVE LOVE LOVE this foundation!! It provides great coverage and stays from when I apply it (6 am) to when I wash it off (10 pm) and it does NOT leave my extremely oily skin looking even shiny. I set this with Rimmel Stay Matte (hg powder) and I am good to go for about 16/17 hours! Doesn't settle into fine lines either. Only two complaints are that it does oxidize but it doesn't turn me orange and it does slightly transfer. Totally worth the $10!
For reference: nc27-30, warm yellow undertones, oily
Originally I picked up "nude beige" but found that the shade was too light and too pink for my skintone. I then picked up "medium beige" which I think would be perfect for nc30 yellow girls. It's a little bit too dark for me but I set my foundation with a lighter powder. Love the packaging; yay for pumps!! Formula is a bit thick. This foundation has a semi matte finish! I find that this could look really Cakey if you use too much so I usually mix in my garnier oil free bb cream to make it thinner. Lasts well for my skin throughout the day. Doesn't oxidize. Because this product has SPF in it, it is not photo friendly!! I don't find myself reaching for this all the time so I wouldn't repurchase.
The weather in Hawaii has been ridiculously hot... Scorching muggy heat which would make anyone automatically sweat once they step outside. This foundation does not work well with this weather. My makeup was literally DRIPPING down my face. Luckily I saw my face before I met up with my Friends. I use the same primers/powder/setting spray with revlon colorstay in this type of weather and that held up soooooo much better Compared to this foundation. Dropping rating from a 3 to 2.
I wanted a quick foundation for a everyday natural makeup kinda day. This definitely does the job. It is about medium coverage and gildes on smoothly. It does last a couple hours on my oily slick. Will probably buy again unless something else catches my eye.
