STEER CLEAR, LADIES.
If you have sensitive skin at all, do not buy this product. I loved this product at first. The consistency of it and how it looked on my skin. Until the breakouts came and they were cystic. This foundation broke me out so badly, I felt as if I was entering puberty all over again. It's such a shame, because the foundation itself is very nice. The packaging is also eh. It's in a container where you have to constantly use some type of stencil or clean finger to pick out during every use, not convenient at all.
Definitely went back to the store!
I bought this product a few days ago from my local drug store. I didn't really like this product at all. It seemed like a great foundation with light to medium coverage, but when I put it on my face, it felt thick on my skin. I don't like when you can feel foundation on your face and I felt that it was caked on. It also oxidized very quickly and I looked orange in just an hour and a half. It didn't really cover up my blemishes or bumps and it just made me look like I slathered on a ton of foundation. I don't wear that much makeup at all because my skin is pretty sensitive but when it acts up, I put on a little foundation to ease redness and/or bumps and this product was definitely not the right one. I guess this one just didn't work for me :/. Oh well.
I actually really like this foundation and have no complaints whatsoever. I was so excited when I stumbled across it months ago at my local WalMart, and I was immediately attracted to the packaging. I did make the mistake of getting a shade too light for my skin tone, but I've since gone back and picked up the shade 342 "Medium Beige" - which is PERFECT. I blend it out with my flat top kabuki and achieve a flawless, airbrushed finish every time. I love the consistency of this foundation, it is very creamy, and not heavy at all. In fact, it does feel very "clean" on my skin. It has a semi matte, velvety finish, which I LOVE because I tend to get pretty oily in my t-zone. It has medium coverage, but it can definitely be built up to full. A tiny bit goes a long way, and I find that it looks awesome on my skin for up to 8 hours. I usually try not to wear makeup for longer than 9 hours anyway, except for when I'm working (12hr shifts, ugh!) This is a great foundation for daily wear, and I have been reaching for it more than anything else lately. I think this little container will last me FOREVER because the littlest bit goes such a long way, but I'll definitely purchase a backup in case Covergirl decides to do away with this.
I've only had this a few days but so far I'm happy. I have dry skin and this foundation felt very light and creamy. I am very pleased with the texture. The color comes off a bit on your hands but I dont touch my face much so not an issue. I had trouble getting the correct shade at first. I think I'm close to Classic Ivory . I at first thought it was too light but after wearing Creamy Natural I decided that it is a bit darker than my neck, barely, so I'm mixing lightest shade, ivory with creamy natural. I'm really in love with airy creamy texture. This foundation feels moisturizing, which I need especially in the winter. It may oxidize slightly. After 9-10hrs I feel shade still matches me well but sometimes is a bit darker. Very slight though, I didn't turn orange at all. I don't think oily skin girls will like the creaminess of this. But for dry skin and/or dry air it feels great.
I bought this product in Classic Ivory because I have cool skin that does well with pink tones and not so well with yellow. This may have appeared pink in the jar but on my face it was very orangey and you could tell it wasn't the same color as my neck. I was very disappointed as the foundation itself was smooth and mattifying and a little went a long way. It just appears it's not available in a shade that matches my skin. I'm now giving CG Clean Makeup for Sensitive Skin in the shade Ivory a try. I always thought I had more color, but I think that's just because my cheeks are so rosy I didn't realize how pale my skin actually is. Oh well, better luck next time.
First, let me say, I LOVE the smell of this! It's absolutely delicious, and makes me smile each time I brush it on around my nose!
This is a pretty good foundation for people who live in drier climates and need a medium/light coverage formula. Humidity is a big no no, this stuff'll melt right off!
My personal experience so far has been something along the lines of "looks great for about 3 hours and progressively gets more and more opaque". Which is fine, because I really only need light coverage, but for someone who's looking for a medium coverage from here to next tuesday I would NOT recommend this.
I picked this up at Target (Okay, I was drawn in by the Hunger Games display) and could not be happier with it. In full disclosure, I am a huge fan of non-traditional forms of foundation (whipped, mousse, etc.) This is definitely a "made-up" look for me because i use a brush, but I'm certain you could sheer it out with the Beauty Blender if you preferred. I set it with powder, but it does a pretty good job of keeping me matte.
Loving this foundation! For me, the biggest challenge is finding a foundation that matches my fair-ish warm toned skin. Buff beige is perfect for me! (Though I tried the same shade in a liquid foundation and it was too light...hmm.) But really, this is a really nice, light foundation. I just take a little bit from the jar, rub it on my fingers, and apply with them. After that, I go over it with a beauty blender if necessary and top with Rimmel's stay matte powder. I can't complain- it blends beautifully, is very inexpensive, and matches my skin tone perfectly. Repurchasing for sure!
I love this foundation. It blends so well and goes on so smoothly. I have acne prone skin and also quite a bit of scarring from my years of hormonal breakout so unfortunately it's hard for me to leave the house with nothing on my face, I always need a bit of coverage to not feel self conscious. This is perfect when I want something quick to even out my skin tone, but the coverage is also build-able for when I do a full face.
The formula of this foundation is great. Super light, good coverage, nice finish, but unfortunately the color selection isn't there. I find this a problem with covergirl cosmetics. Way too pink. I'm fair/light with warmer undertones and unfortunately the perfect shade for me in covergirl doesn't exist. I bought 310 classic ivory because original ivory is way too light. Classic ivory is very pink and just not a good match. It's a shame I really liked this and the price is great. Oh well.
