Oil control? Not at all the oil came through my pores through the makeup looked horrible tried it out different techniques and applying regardless looked horrible and had little to none coverage and caused bad acne=(
Okay, so i had this stuff in the summer and i looved it. it was great for covering blemishes.
Then i realized after i got rid of it (it started getting darking over time= veryy annoying) and bought the lighter shade of the kind for sensitive skin since they didnt have the oil control type, i realized this was what was causing my horrible skin.
I recommend just getting the kind for sensitive skin, it seems better for your skin.
I have combination skin with a very oily T-zone, and this is honestly the best foundation I've found for controlling my oil. It lasts about 3 hours before I have to blot (on a good day, applied in between a primer and setting powder), but I haven't found anything that lasts longer on my skin, which is unfortunate because I wish I could find something long lasting that matches my skin tone properly. I'm very fair skinned and the lightest shade (classic ivory) is slightly too dark with a pink tint. The reason why I only give it 3 lippies is because it lacks a wide variety of shades. Over all, it's a decent foundation for controlling oil and doesn't hurt your wallet too much.
I use this in CREAMY NATURAL and I've been using it for many years. Love the coverage and feel of this on my skin.
I had this a while back... like a year ago or so. I had a wrong shade (looked ashy) and it didn't provide much coverage. Worst of all, it broke me out mostly on my forehead. This was the reason why I got the aversion toward liquid foundation.
I'm waaaaay happier with Fresh Complexion Powder Foundation (read my review :> ). Despite being pressed powder, it give me medium coverage even when used with a foundation brush. With my oily skin, i find that liquid makeup isn't meant for me. continued >>
I've been using this foundation for a while now, based on the fact that it keeps my always oily-skin from being so...oily. However, I've recently been noticing if I don't use a primer, it cakes like mad, especially around my eyes. It also has little coverage unless I put a lot on. Probably won't buy again
Well, I tried it again. And I have no clue how everyone can say it does not cake. The moment it is on my skin it cakes. Yes, I use moisturizer and primer...it makes no difference. The formula also dies lightening fast, so you have to work thick.
My skin is they type that needs to be reblotted in 30 minutes, that's how bad it is. And this just caked up with my oil, leaving me looking horrific and fake. I Hate hate HATE this foundation.
I didn't even realize it until a month ago, that this product was causing me to break out like crazy! I thought it was stress. I switched from CG to Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse and I'm loving the difference. My skin can breathe!!! I used the Clean Oil-Free line, because of my oily skin.
Cover Girl face makeup is terrible. After 4 hours my face is slick and oily. It's disgusting.
I have dark, oily, acne prone skin normally, however before I used cover girl I was breakout free for years!!! After I lost my job and couldn't afford the expensive stuff I started using CG. The breakouts happened so often and over time I never thought about my makeup I assumed it was my acne wash. I've changed my makeup but use the same acne wash and my face is healing.
DON'T USE IT!! NOT OIL FREE!!
i expected a great all-round coverage from this foundation but it was a complete disappointment! it does not have any coverage at all, my problem spots show like a sore thumb and it has a weird smell to it. after maybe 2 hours my face looks like i have no foundation on at all and i have to powder my face over and over again which makes my face look completely cakey and i prefer the natural look. overall this foundation is not worth my money. i think I will go and try the maybelline superstay foundation.
Awful. Absolutely awful. I really don't have anything to add to all the other negative comments, so you should check those out before buying it. Yes, it's only $7, maybe less where you buy it, but you get the same result as if you had simply thrown the money in the trash.
I had never tried CG liquid fdtn before in my life. I feel like I've tried a ton of other things, but not that. I looked around for people's recs for shade match for my NC20 skin, and went with Classic Ivory. I find this to be a good match. This foundation stays on pretty well, and doesn't make my skin greasy. Recently, I had pretty much only been trying foundations at Sephora, but I decided I wanted to try some cheaper alternatives that work well for oily skin (and yes, I've tried Revlon CS, Rimmel Lasting Finish, Maybelline SuperStay, etc.). This lasts long, applies nicely, and gives enough coverage, but a natural finish. I'm liking the look of this! We'll see over time if this breaks me out. I also didn't notice the major Noxema scent that a lot of other people caught. I don't notice much scent at all, and I have a pretty sensitive sniffer.
