In Australia they only sell this in like, 5 or 6 shades and my skin tone matches the darkest they have which is Golden Tan. This has a golden undertone which is perfect for me. This is a very matte foundation which I find perfect for summer. In winter, I mix this with my Maybelline Dream Mousse foundation in natural beige which has more of a pink undertone and more dewy so my skin wouldn't feel dry, it also gives me a perfect colour and look really natural. This has a medium to full coverage depends on how much you put on. Feels very lightweight on your skin and doesn't break out on me. Definitely going to repurchase and would recommend to anyone except for people with dry skin.
I have never been a fan of Cover Girl products (mainly because i dislike their mascara wands), however, I DID like this foundation because it conceals well and lasts long :) !!!
It is very reasonably priced- I got it for $9!
Also, the packaging makes it look more expensive.
I love the coverage but i HATE how it oxadizes! In my opinion if you have yellow under tones this foundation isn't for you
Good foundation but thick. I apply then spritz with mac fix plus then I blend that in to give me a glowy finish. I don't know if I would buy again though its ok.
I have oily skin and moderate acne, pretty bad acne scars, and the worst dark under eye circles I've ever seen. This covers all of the imperfections without concealer (I hate using concealer). I wouldn't recommend it for dry skin. I used to use revlon colorstay for oily/combination skin and I like cover girl 3 in 1 soo much better! I noticed that it does oxidize on my skin so I had to switch to a lighter shade.
So far I'm really liking this product...I find that most foundations tend to make my skin appear shiney / oily after a while of wear however this one seems to maintain a matte powder-like finish
I am on my second bottle which is pretty huge for me.
I first purchased it in March when I was far fairer...in Buff Beige. It sadly oxidized on me. That said, I adored the formula, kinda crazy as I stick to powder foundation (Palladio!!!) and high end liquids for my oily/sensitive skin (LORAC, MUFE). I didn't even like the famed and much beloved Colorstay Liquid (though I am in love with the whipped creamy formula in the jar!) Summer rolled around, I spent time in Santa Monica on the beach and needed a darker shade so I picked up the Buff Beige again and it's perfect.
This stuff comes in a nice glass bottle with a nifty pump, very sanitary. It smooths on fairly well, I just use my fingers...not a fan of using a foundation brush unless for cream foundations. It does require careful and thorough blending, especially around the eyes/nose/mouth as it can cake up. It leaves a nice natural/slightly matte finish and offers great coverage and yup, I can certainly forgo concealer with this. I love how it lasts all day and I SWEAT *a lot* due to health issues. It just needs touching up with a few swipes of powder (I use Revlon Colorstay in Fair).
Am I the only one who think this foundation is overrated???
-It have a pump AND you can lock it so it is travel friendly.
-CAKEY, CAKEY, CAKEY
-I have combo skin... with this I look like I put butter all over my face!!!
-Apparently all the shades have a slight pinky tone so as most drugstore foundations, agggg, COME ON!!!
-It oxidizes like crazy!!!
Im very sad, I wanted to love it so much.
I bought this because I was looking for a foundation that would withstand my oily face. Let me just say...THIS STUFF IS THE BOMB!! Its so easy to blend. As for the finish, it's not really dewy but it's also not freakishly matte...it's sorta inbetween. On the lasting power... this holds up on my oily skin almost all day :'). I'd pay 10 dollars for this any day.
I use this foundation in shade Golden Tan and I love it! Has great yellow undertones. Great coverage but with a light weight feel. It also doesn't break me out at all! My skin looks better then ever using this foundation. and it has a pump!!!! Love it
