As a foundation this is a big no-no. As an eye primer, why, yes! if you can find one in your color that it >_< oh well... try again Cover Girl!

I was a little disappointed in this: it had no oil control properties whatsoever. I won't be buying this again and would recommend the CG Clean Pressed Powder instead. Update: I'm determined to use the rest of the bottle up (there's so much of it!) by dabbing a bit on old acne marks as a daily concealer sort of thing.
This is a little too sheer for my taste. I did notice some of the shades can turn orange as the day goes on, but I've found that Natural Beige does not. I don't really use this on its own anymore, it makes a great base for TruBlend liquid foundation. It keeps oiliness at bay for awhile.
I use this in creamy natural paired with natural ivory powder for fall and winter. It works well for those times. I will continue to use bare minerals on the days I am oilier or for summer. But for more everyday, Cover Girl works.
Oil control?? Not for me...and also very cakey. I could tell I was wearing make up. I didn't like it at all. Won't be buying again.
Oh man...I really hope that this product has been discontinued. It is a horrible foundation. It cakes and the application is so uneven. I tried this ages ago and I was very disappointed. Also, I could never get the right shade..it was either too pink or too yellow on me. Yuck.
I agree that the colour selection really does suck for these foudations. I bought this in classic ivory #510 and it's a tad too light for me (MAC 20-25), bu ti use a bronzer so it works out pretty good. All liquid foundations turn a darker shade on my skin for some reason after about an hour or so...which is OK since this colour was a touch too light to begin with. THis works very well if used SHEERLY and LIGHTLY! looks very natural and makes my skin look more EVENED out. Would rebuy cuz it's cheap =) As far as the oil control claim, i'm not too sure how well it works since i use a mattifying lotion underneathe. i have dry/combo skin but it does get kinda oily in the summer when the weather is hot. Not a bad product.. but yes the color selection can definitely be improved!
UDPATE: I am actually really liking this fdtn! I am using sunblock on my face now since it's summer (yes girls i know.. greasy, oily face ><) but this fdtn works great! i need to blot slightly mid day but def not a bother =) also this doesn't cake either!! thumbs up! continued >>
All the colors are way too pink. May be a great product if you have a sunburn but other than that it's like putting paste on your face.
This foundation is alrite. If you have acne I think you should use this because its nice and light and it looks natural. Its worth $5! It doesn't cover great though... MAC and Revlon work better in my opinion.
I have very oily skin that is prone to breakouts. This Cover Girl foundation went on well and was fragrance-free. I would suggest it only for people with really oily skin because it would probably emphasize dryness and flakiness. I don't think it controls oil well but I haven't found any product that does, for me anyway, and at $3.50 (at Target) I can live with having to blot throughout the day. The coverage is not heavy enough to cover blemishes but it did even out my skin tone. Also, I didn't feel like I had anything on. UPDATE: This product is still good for the price but I don't think I'll be repurchasing. I have oily skin and this product doesn't last throughout the day and doesn't cover very well in the summer heat and humidity. Maybe I'll try it again in the winter.
