This is a great foundation. I use this almost everyday. I love the coverage it gives and the fact that is lightweight. It is about $10 so It is a pretty good price. I wish it would be $7 or $8 but i am sure the packaging would have to be sacrificed for that and I love how it has a pump so $10 is worth it. This is a great drugstore foundation that I would recommend to everyone especially beginners. I actually just bought some more today because my other color was too dark for the winter. This is my go to foundation. I would say this is actually my holy grail foundation.
I got shade golden tan, because I want to be tanned look in summer, but I think it is too dark and orange, I love yellow toned foundation, I only use this when mix with a lighter color foundation. The foundation itself is thick, but blended well. Overall, for me, it is so so
I like this just as much as my Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation. It doesn't have quite the overage, but close enough. And it's about 1/4 the price so I can settle. It covers a lot - not everything, I still need my MUFE concealer to take care of some spots, but I have moderately severe acne with LOTS of scars, so I probably have more redness than most. This controls my oil extremely well (I have combo skin). It is a very matte foundation, but when I use it with my beauty blender it looks SO natural. And it comes with a pump; it is fantastic!
I love this foundation! Its the only foundation that i trust to keep me relatively matte for around 3-4 hours considering i have EXTREMELY oily skin. However, I did have a problem with one of the shades 845. I thought it was great and matched me perfectly inside but when i when outside and checked in a mirror my face was oranger than a pumpkin. Maybe its just the lighting at the time, but i quickly threw it out. I much prefer the shade 842 for my NC35-NC37 skin tone. It does oxidize, but to more of a beige color rather than a traffic cone orange. It never broke me out and i have struggled with acne my whole life. It controls oil far better than the revlon colorstay while still feeling like I'm not wearing anything at all and I rarely had issues with caginess, if ever. Highly recommend this
I have many foundations- Revlon Whipped, L'Oreal, Wet n Wild , Rimmel but this one is the first to ever flake and oxidize(!) on me after 4 hours of wear. Very disappointed. Cover Girl never delivers on its promise. Dont waste your money on this gimmicky loser.
I absolutely love this foundation. I use the lightest shade and it matches my skin tone better than the foundation I was matched to at Sephora. I used Stila Stay All Days before and it didn't have the flawless matte finish of this foundation. This foundation is fantastic, can't recommend it enough.
I wanted to love it...
but...it made me break out HORRIBLY.
I loved it the 1st day I applied it. It covers well, face looks matte, does what it claims. However, a few days later it made me break out in huge cystic acne that lasted weeks. Awful. I had read a review before trying this and the reviewer warned about the acne. I tried it anyway and now I have horrible scars from the acne :( I went back to my MAC Pro longwear foundation. I guess you get what you pay for. Ohhhh my face :( :(
LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PRODUCT!! I do have to make sure to moisturize well beforehand as it can accentuate some dry spots and it does go on smoother with a primer but OH MY GOODNESS I would definitely repurchase. My face is completely matte and flawless looking all day. I don't even have to use extra concealer. Some people complained that this foundation oxidized but it didn't on me.
Definitely do not understand how this foundation has such amazing reviews; this product only made my face look worse! I went out and bought this foundation based on how many incredible reviews it had and I for sure wouldn't ever leave the house with this product on my face. I have oily-ish/acne-prone skin and I bought the colour classic ivory, as ivory is normally too light and makes my face look very white, however this made my face a dark yellow/orange as soon as I applied it. It didn't live up to what it says either. The coverage was light, and it looked very patchy over blemishes and any acne scaring. It did not blend well at all (I tried it with both my hands and a foundation brush). It was very hard to smooth out over my entire face as it liked to stay in one area and if I tried to blend it out it lost a lot of it's coverage and had a patchy/cakey look to it. When I put on another very thin layer to get more coverage over any areas that needed it, it also looked cakey and didn't blend together. I didn't leave it on long enough to see if it had the lasting power of a primer, so I can't be the judge of that. Also, when I put my translucent powder over top of it to see if it made any difference to the look of this foundation, it just made blemishes stand out more than they do without any makeup on. Will not be repurchasing this product.
This is a good value foundation but I do not recommend it for dry skin. Looks caked-on and accentuates dry patches if you have any. It has good coverage. The Classic Ivory is a great shade for very pale girls.
