I say yes to would I buy - but the better answer is probably maybe. I got this free as a BuzzAgent and its not bad. I've never bought a Cover Girl foundation before due to their limited range of colors. This line has a good range of shades and I somewhat blindly picked Oak and its a pretty good match for my NC35 skin. The pros- natural finish, not too matte or too glowy, good color range. The cons - its over $15 bucks at CVS, and the lasting power is not the best (but in all honesty I say that about most foundations). The reviews aren't so good here on MUA but its not a bad product. I think for some this can really work!
UPDATE: I may have been too hasty in commenting on its lasting power. The funny thing is when I first apply it it looks good, then not so good but then good again...In the second phase (not so good) I feel like the color gets kind of ashy. Then in the third phase once it has had some time to melt into my skin it looks good again....I might try one of the other colors.
I just bought this and I think I'm in love! I applied it this morning and 8 hours later my skin looks soft smooth and flawless. I finally found my everyday foundation! It really feels like I'm not wearing anything, but I look polished and fresh. I got it in 305, Alablaster which surprisingly is a pretty good match for me. It could be a tad lighter, but the undertones match mine well enough that I don't even care. I used moisturizer to start, then applied it with a foundation brush. I feel like it can be applied with my fingers as well if I'm too lazy to clean my foundation brush one day. I then set it with NYC's translucent powder and I am in love with how my skin looks and feels right now. I don't think this would be a good match for someone with really problematic skin because its not the best coverage, but if you're looking for a light-medium coverage for everyday, give this a try!
I actually would wear this for going out at night. It does look good on, and you can't see that there is foundation there. It's also easy to put on, the foundation is a lil watery which I like, because it's easy to blend and put on. The finish is natural, more on the satin/dewy side but not too much. HOWEVER, it feels pretty heavy on. The first time I tried it, I didn't put any blush or bronzer on top and it felt like I had all that and more. It made me feel sticky and oily, even though I actually wasn't. So I wouldn't wear it for everyday. And I will not repurchase. Sticking to MUFE HD!!
Smooth, dewy and best of all doesn't look or feel like makeup. I just use it under eyes and across top of cheeks. Gives face a lift and makes skin brighter. Didn't think it made that much of difference but I get a lot more looks, so maybe it's a dramatic change? Recommend highly giving it a try!
Just received this product yesterday so I decided to give it a try today. I got the shade 310, which is a good match for me. I am not big on CG foundations, but since this was free, it couldn't hurt to try. I have also recently noticed that sponge application for foundations works best for me, so that's how I applied this product. It blended it really well with my skin and didn't look like makeup. The coverage is light so it does not feel or look heavy or caked on skin at all. It is also moisturizing to a point so my skin looked fresh.
I am not overly fond of the scent, but it is not offensive either...definitely does not smell like cucumber to me though. Since I got a lot of coupons for this, I may give it a try if it's cheap (not sure about the actual retail price). I also typically don't need a whole lot of heavy coverage, so this will be a good product to use in the summer. It won't replace my Revlon Colorstay as far as coverage, but it's a relatively good product for those looking for something similar to a tinted moisturizer...it will not cover up imperfections at all but it does balance out skintone. I also like the packaging - very sanitary.
I bought this as my first liquid foundation. From reviews i read i thought i would give medium coverage and be light, which it was. I love the way my face looks right after i apply, i got 335 Dune which is an exact match for my skintone it but when i look back in the mirror half an hour later i look so much darker and orange. I want to like this product way more than i do, the smell is sometimes to much and it doesn't wear long.
Amazing foundation! I have very oily, acne-prone skin and this foundation didn't flake, slide off, turn orange or anything! All things that, in my experience certain foundations, *coughMaybellinecough* do. If you have oily skin, this foundation is for you!
i REALLY like this makeup.
I got a small sample of it, so curiousity took in and i tried it. and i loved it!! i bought a tube of it in the shade maple.
It made my skin feel amazing, the smell wasn't bad, and the finish of the foundation is so natural looking.
i usually need setting powder, but this stuff i totally didn't need it. and i have REALLY oily skin.
the coverage isn't heavy, it is definitely light to medium, so i wouldn't reccommend it if you want to really hide pimples, but if you just need to even out your skin tone, then its absolutely perfect.
i saw a lot of you say that it doesn't stay well and that it breaks you out..
i personaly haven't had a problem. i actually took a nap in this make up..and it stayed. none of it was on my white pillow case. and i only had to touch up a little, because i usually get a little shiney after sleeping.
BUT disclaimer, I also use an amazing primer. Loreal studio secrets. so that could be helping me out in the staying power. and it might protect my skin from it too if it does break me out...because it hasn't done that yet either.
overall a very nice foundation, it is probably my new summer foundation.
This is a great drug strore brand foundation! I absolutely love the texture and consistency. I agree with other posters - this is definitely medium, not full coverage! It smells great and does provide decent coverage. And the packaging states it is natural - so hopefully better for your skin that some other things that can go on it.
It did make my face seem slick and shiny after a full day of wearing - so if you like your foundation to be quite mattifying as I do - I would go with a different formula. However - if you like the "dewy" look with medium coverage - this just might be the foundation for you!
Before purchasing this product, I checked out the Cover Girl website where I found I could get a free sample of it. The one package was my perfect skintone, and I fell in love. The smell is really good and I love it, it glides on smooth and deffintly makes your skin one color. Though it is lighter coverage, and I have sensitive skin so it broke me out. It left me itchy on my chin, and made red marks and scratches all over my nose and T area zone mostly. I love the product except for it made me break out, so sadly I wont by this again. If you have dry, non-sensitive skin then I think this would be the perfect match for you.
This product was NOT the one to break me out. It was my concealer. Changed concelear, and I am now still using this.It works great:)) Sooo yeah. I reccomend it now that i look back.
