First I was so thrilled this product is cheap, well coverage, controlls my shine for almost 8 hrs. after finishing my first bottle, I was about to buy the second one then I found my forhead was really bumpy! I didn't know what was causing it, I even bought the Proactive set thought maybe it would help. Not until I read some foundation reviews and learned that some cheap foundations use TALC as one of the ingredients. Talc can clog the pores and causing break out. So I stopped using CG oil-controll foundation, about a month later, my bumpy forhead was smooth again without using any special remedy. ( Proactive was making my skin too dry, I didn't use it for long)
I will not recommand anyone to buy this product if your pores tend to clogged up easily like mine.
This is a very good foundation for light everyday use! I loved it! Reduced the redness on my cheeks and matched my skin perfectly! I bought this originally in soft honey but classic tan was exactly the same color as my skin. It is a little hard to get out of the bottle but what seems to work is tapping the bottle and pouring the foundation on a little piece of square foil or some sort of paper. Overall this product is worth buying again!
I can't believe I'm actually giving this such a high rating, but it really does look good on me! I'm shocked. I've been using this foundation on and off for years, but I keep switching to more expensive foundations, thinking that maybe they'll make me look flawless. :) But somehow I get frustrated and go right back to this cheap little drugstore gem. I have very oily skin with cystic acne, scarring, and an uneven texture. I'm constantly searching for a product that will make me look "fresh". This one does just that...it's not terribly matte but slightly dewy on my face, even after I've dusted powder on top. It goes on creamy and does a good job of covering my acne and scars, especially if I take some extra time to build up the coverage. I'm pretty picky, and in order to gain HG status, a product has to REALLY wow me on a day-to-day basis and make me look stunning without much effort LOL. So this foundation may not exactly be HG for me, but it's pretty darn close. :P
This was my favorite foundation to wear when I was pregnant. It helped control my oily skin better than anything else I tried. It also covered well and evened out my skin tone. I only wore it for the 18 months that I have been pregnant over the years because I find it to drying otherwise. But if I ever got pregnant again (which I hope not), I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.
I am reviewing the foundation in the glass bottle with the blue cover. first of all I have oily skin. The foundation is hard to get out even in a new bottle. I have to bang on the bottom to get some out. I apply with my fingers because this stuff is buildable, but sheer at first and I don't want my makeup sponge "soaking" up any of this sheer foundation! This controls my oily skin all day! I also use the CG fresh complextion wand concealer, and the silver pressed powder. (wich is being discontinued so stock up!) this combination works great together!
While I agree with previous reviews that say this foundation does hardly anything at all for oil control, I also think that this really isn't half bad. I used the lightest shade, Ivory, and it was a great match for my skin (no small feat, I promise! I'm super pale). Plus, when applied lightly with a foundation brush, it does a good job of evening out my skin tone; however, this is a sheer foundation, so I did wind up using concealer on my really red spots. I wouldn't give this HG status, but for the price it's excellent. It looks really natural and gives off a slightly dewy, healthy glow. I am not such a big fan of the bottle, though... It's hard to get a small amount out, I wish it had a pump. I'm not sure, but it may have clogged a few pores on my forehead. I'm going to keep using this and see if it truly was the culprit; if it is, I'll update my review.
I've been experimenting with foundations lately, and I really like this one. The consistency is definitely thicker than the normal Clean Makeup, which makes it so much more blendable. It gives a good level of coverage and looks natural. It does control most of the oil, although touch-ups are needed in the T-zone. It lasts through most of the day and doesn't slide off, which is very nice. My only problem is that the lightest color in this line is too pink for my skin. I may try the next color darker just in case it's more yellow-based.
Bottom line, this is a really good foundation for a very low price.
i love this foundation b/c it never makes me break out! it's light and sheer, but can give good coverage when i need it to. it doesn't really 'control' oil like it claims, but it also doesn't make my skin worse. most liquid foundations break me out like crazy, so i'm thankful this one doesn't!! plus, it's dirt cheap at target!
I bought this on a whim, but I love it. I really think my skin has improved since using this product because it really does help control my really oily skin, especially since it's summertime.
There's lots of shades to choose from. I got Creamy natural 520 which is slightly too light for me, but it blends all right and looks fine. The coverage is light to medium...won't do miracles for a huge angry red zit or anything, but good for general evening out skintone, and will cover some older acne dark spots.
I used to just use Neutrogena's rapidclear acne lotion on my face and then use powder to even skin tone, but that always turned into an oily mess and my face was pretty acne-prone. Once I switched from powder foundation to this, my breakouts have definitely gone down a notch and my face stays matte for much longer.
Very good coverage to make me look natural but not "made up". I still see some dark circles and blemishes (basic flaws) but it is lessened and not a "mask". So I love it!
