Edit: this product breaks me out horribly!! In my last review I raved about the texture and feel, which is still true. I love the way it covers my pores but it comes at a price! I looked at the ingredients and it includes parabens! If you are acne prone stay away.
Def didn't like! Made me shiny w/in 2 hrs , color is too yellow and had minimal coverage. Not suited for oily skin that needs coverage.
I'm usually not a big fan of Covergirl foundations, as I find they generally don't tend to work well with oily skin types. But I'm such a fan of the Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme foundation that I had to give this a try. Especially since I managed to find it for $5.99(CAD) at Walmart. Which is the smallest amount I've ever paid for any foundation. I also noticed how much better the packaging this foundation has in comparison to the Revlon. It's in a glass jar as well, but it's a lot less bulky. The texture between the two are fairly different as well. This foundation is lighter than the Revlon. I've tried applying it with a buffing brush as well as with a beauty blender. I think the beauty blender gives a more natural finish. Overall, I was incredibly impressed with the way this foundation applied. It gives light to medium coverage, but it has one of the most airbrushed but natural finishes I've ever seen. Because the Revlon whipped foundation is heavier, it can get cakey if over applied. However the Covergirl looks perfect every time. That being said however, it doesn't last very long. This is not by any means a foundation that I would recommend for all day wear. I use it when I'm only going out for a few hours at a time during the day. Setting it with a powder does help a little, but most oily skin types will probably have trouble with this foundation.
I wish so bad that this product would work for me. It just doesn't. My skin's way too oily. It isn't matte finish so in about an hour my face just looks disgusting. It's so beautiful when I first put it on, and 310 is a perfect match for me. I haven't worn it enough to tell wether it breaks me out or not. It definitely doesn't have much staying power. The few times I've worn it, it's pretty much gone by the end of my 8 hour work day. I would return it if I had the receipt, it just doesn't work for my skin type. The reason it gets a 3 is because the color is spot on, it's beautiful upon application and I could really see it working for those with dry skin.
EDIT: Re-rated this foundation. I tried it again today thinking maybe if I applied using a different method with a primer underneath that it would be better. It's not. I applied a very think layer of Mary Kay's primer and then this foundation using a cosmetic sponge. I set this with Cover Girl's powder foundation in the blue compact. It looked gorgeous! Until now. This was around 10am, it's now 2:32pm and I look absolutely disgusting. My face is obnoxiously greasy and just feels like it has a layer of petroleum jelly on it. Unless you have dry skin, DO NOT even try this stuff. It's a waste.
EDIT: Threw this crap in the trash. After I washed this off my face using an Aveeno cleansing pad I saw tons and tons of clogged pores all over my chin and forehead and even a couple on my cheek where I NEVER break out! I'll never buy or use this crap again.
This is a nice summer foundation. Personally, I only buy CG's Blast mascaras cause I think everything else is crap but this product was a surprise. I am a fan of whipped/mousse and light coverage foundations. I would say that this foundation is a light/medium coverage foundation with a satin finish that is also buildable.
I would not recommend this product to individuals with severely oily, dry or blemished skin. This foundation allows your skin to breathe and I really like that. It's lighter than the Revlon whipped foundation but it's staying power isn't as good as Revlon's. Some shine will be apparent after a few hours of wear but if you prime your face and set the foundation then it should work well for you. Super silky and lightweight feel on the skin.
For $7 it's definitely worth a shot if your interested.
I bought the foundation on a thursday and tried it on the following saturday on a very hot and humid day. I was really suprised how it covers everything. I left it on for a good 7-8 hours and I had very little shine. it`s very soft and I found that it doesn't take a lot to cover my face. I love the packageing, you can see how much is left compare to sometimes a bottle you don`t really know . I found it on sale at 5.99$ but l'm sure the regular price will not discourage me from buying it again.
I have been looking for a foundation that isnt high coverage but isnt to sheer either! this is just perfect! I havent worn it alp day to see how well it stays but it goes on very nice! I got shade 320 or creamy natural. In the store it actually looked dark. But when I put it on its ablittle bit light. I might have to save it for the winter! I do feel like it should be set with a setting powder. I dont trouble to much with oil but sometimes I do get shiny. This product is very light weight and easy to apply. I will most like purchase again! hope I could help
i just got this foundation and I must say it is my first holy grail drugstore foundation, oddly enough considering I don't care for most covergirl products. This foundation is very inexpensive(I paid around 7$ at walmart) and its amazing. After trying this on for the first time I knew it was an almost identical dupe for Laura Mercier's silk crème foundation, which I paid 42$ for!!!!! This foundation like the silk crème has great medium coverage and can be built to full( I tried building it to full with no problems), the foundation is really smooth and super blendable and they have a decent shade selection. The only difference between the covergirl and Laura Mercier foundations are that the silk crème has a slightly more dewy finish then the covergirl, the covergirl is more of a natural finish. Both foundations need to be set with a powder anyways so its not a big deal. This foundation is perfect for dry to normal skins but if your oily I would just stay away. Overall my fav drugstore foundation!!
I tried this foundation on for the first time today. For reference, I have combo/acne-prone skin and I'm about NC40.
Dotted the foundation onto my skin and blended out with a Flat-top kabuki brush. It felt extremely smooth putting it on and gave a lot of coverage. I quickly realized that I needed very few dots to blend it all out. SUPER blendable and smooth.
Covered my spots very well, not cakey feeling at all (obv because it's a creme product. I'd say it's medium coverage. You don't want to layer this foundation because it could start to look cakey.
I made the huge mistake of not using setting powder. It has been about 4 hours since I've applied the foundation and when I touch my face it feels sticky and wet-tish - kinda gross but that's my own fault for not setting it. I do prefer foundations that set to dry themselves.
I will update if I break out. Fingers crossed. Overall, I would not call this one of my favorite drugstore foundations, but you can def try it out. I'll be doing an application demo and review on my YT channel v soon so check that if interested :) www.youtube.com/maliqshake
was exciting to try this new product from covergirl. mousse type make up hasn't worked well for me in the past, so i shouldn't have been surprised that this didn't work well for me. there was not enough coverage for me, even after layering it several times. I still had to add concealer. also, after only about an hour, it was already getting oily on me. NOT GOOD. i need a foundation to last me all day at work, and prefer it to last all night as well. i really love the covergirl clean oil control liquid foundation, so i was disappointed in this. this was $1 more than the liquid one at walmart. my skin is combo oily in the Summer, and by the end of the day (only had this on for about half the day), it was basically melted off. i would recommend maybe for more dry skin types. not for me.
