i was really upset when i tried this foundation on it didnt last on my skin at all...it came off...and i didnt like how the foundation color looked very orange on me...i do not recommend this at all...its very light...and does not have great coverage!!!
I'm not very happy with this foundation. Coverage isn't very good, and if i don't slather on moisturizer before it makes my skin look really dry even if it isn't. The worst is that even when I get it to look right, it doesn't last for more than an hour or two without needing a touch-up.
I would give this a 3.5 if I could. I am satisfied with it and will purchase it again, but it's very basic and only good on those good skin days, as the coverage is very sheer. I like this on days when I don't want to wear a lot of makeup and am just running errands. My only complaint is that it doesn't blend very well and the pump can get messy after awhile. But shade 410 Classic Ivory matches me soooo perfectly that I have to purchase again!!
EDIT: The more I use this, the less I like it. It's REALLY hard to blend and it doesn't cover anymore. I also suspect that it's making me break out. I'm returning it!!
I'm surprised to see so many negative reviews on the TruBlend liquid makeup, I have always just used CG pressed powder alone because liquid foundations always seemed to be too dark or yellow on my fair skin. I have a fairly uneven skintone which shows through powder alone so I thought I would try the CG TruBlend in Ivory, and it is absolutely perfect on my skin. When I first applied it, it seemed a little yellow but after 5 minutes it seemed to change color to match my skin perfectly and flawlessly. I always apply the CG Clean pressed powder overtop for a glowing, even complexion that looks so smooth. I apply it with a wedge sponge, one pump is always enough for full coverage, the pump does get a little messy after awhile, but it's nothing a kleenex cant fix. It seems a bit pricey to me at about $14, but I suppose it is worth it for how long it takes to actually use it all up.
this foundation is really nice.
-has a pump
-matches my winter skin perfectly ( not now since im tanner)
-enexpensive (6.50 at walmart)
-doesnt break me out
-the pump can leak and get messy but you have a cap so i doesnt get all over the place
-the coverage is light so i can only use this when my skin is working with me
Overall i like this foundation but i do prefer my revlon colorstay more
I tried this as I saw it on a pound store so I thought, what the heck!
Coverage = sheer
Texture = oily and thick. Therefore, I don't recommend this on oily skinned people. It literally started to melt of my face within an hour of application and just turned blotchy. I couldn't find a good colour to match my tan skin, most where too light or too orange.
I only got it for £1 so I can't really complain! Not repurchasing.
On a whim I decided to try this foundation. Well CG missed the boat this time.
This foundation is very greasy, slides around as you're blending, & does not "adhere" to your skin. And I donot have oily skin; in fact it's on the dry side, even in the summer. After I allowed time for it to set, it still felt sticky & looked greasy/oily. The coverage is also very poor, for as thick as the formula is.
Packaging is so-so; I think the pump dispenses too much at a time, & the color selection is poor.
Comparing this product to other Covergirl liquid foundations, I found this one to be by far the best. I really like the packaging, and the amount of make up the pump gives is perfect, and the consistency of the make up isn't runny. I would say coverage for this product is between light and medium. This works for me, because I don't like to have heavy amounts of coverage all over my face. One downside, is it seems to make the appearance of skin a little dull, so I always use a face illuminator along my cheeks and temple to add some luminescence. Now after a long day, my skin tended to become a little more oily from this product so I periodically go and check my face every few hours or so if I can. Even better, carry oil blotting sheets and just lightly blot NOT rub on your face. Rubbing causes the make up to be removed. The price of this product is average for drugstore make up, and isn't overly expensive. In a nutshell, I do enjoy using this product and will probably continue using it for a long time.
-Lovely packaging--1,000 times better than the dreadful design of Cover Girl's Clean Makeup!
-Sheer, dewy, natural-looking coverage
-Blends very easily (*over a good moisturizer or primer*)
-Doesn't feel like anything on the skin
-Fairly inexpensive (mine was about $12)
-Will last you a while! I don't even use full pumps on a day-to-day basis--that's far too much!
-If blended correctly and or set with a powder will not transfer onto clothing, hands, etc.
-If you sweat easily (like I do), it will immediately make your face look oily--so you'll need to touch up.
-OK color selection--not great, but it'll do.
-Cheap pump. Whilst cleaning it, it popped right off and wouldn't go on properly again :(
-At the end of its lifespan, when there's still a bit of product left, it won't dispense it (which I suppose is an issue with every pump foundation, but it is bothersome! I hate wasting product). It's nearly impossible to get it out of the narrow jar, too.
-This isn't really a con for me, but it doesn't cover blemishes. I don't break out in true pimples often (mostly I just get annoying little whiteheads), but when I do I don't like them to be covered up--I feel like that makes them worse!
All in all, I like it! Yes, it can get oily, but it gives you a nice glow. It's very sheer, too, like a tinted moisturizer, but eliminates the redness in my cheeks.
I really like this product. Its a great price. The only problem is that it doesnt blend as well as i'd like.
