In the past, I've been a fan of Cover Girl foundations because I've found they match my skin/blend well, but I'm often disappointed by their staying power (ex. the TRUblend foundation) so I was excited to see a long-lasting foundation.
At first, I LOVED it; great coverage, blends well, matched my skin, lasts forever, etc. But after the third or fourth time I tried it, I started to notice it oxidizing into a horrible pinky-orange color within several hours. Now I have very peachy-pale skin, so you can imagine my horror when I glanced in a mirror and saw a splotchy, orange face gazing back at me.
I really wanted to like this one, but unfortunately the cons just outweigh the pros and I don't think I'll repurchase.
At first, I loved this foundation, as i was applying it, the color matched perfectly with my skin. However, after about an hour the foundation turned a weird dark, pink tone. This foundation oxidizes REALLY bad. And it doesn't just turn a darker hue, it completely changes tones to be an orangey pink. It's not flattering at all. Covergirl, if you are reading this: I absolutely LOVE the finish, it lasts forever, it controls oil, and covers well also. BUT you need to fix the oxidizing problem.
So Far I really like this! It has no scent,which is a plus for me!! I had got the Classic Ivory but the color oxidized on me so had to return it and get the lightest color which is Ivory. So far the color matches Perfect!! I'm fair skinned and freckle easy but I can tan well too! I'm really happy they made a color for fair skinned girls with pink undertones. It did seem though to be a little oily and shiny at the end of the day but I only tried this a couple times so I will update later.
I'm not sure how I feel about this yet. I bought it yesterday, and I've used it twice. I got the shade "nude beige" and it matches my skin tone pretty well. However, I don't quite care for the coverage I get from this, as I don't think it's enough. I put it on over a primer and blended it with a beauty blender, and it looked pretty good - airbrushed almost, but I wouldn't necessarily say that it gave me full coverage. I do like the packaging, and it's nice to see that Cover Girl finally came out with a pump style bottle. My skin is pretty oily, and usually looks shiny after three to four hours of application, but this stuff has done a pretty good at keeping my oiliness at bay. I guess I'm going to have to keep using it before I can discover my true feelings.
I'm around a NC30 in Mac, and decided to give "Medium Beige" a shot because I know the shade right below which I believe is "Natural Beige" has more of a pinkish undertone and the one below that is "Nude Beige" which has a yellow undertone which would be better suited for people with an NC20/25 skin tone. When I applied it first it looked to be a little lighter than my skin tone, however when I applied it again the next day it seemed to turn a little dark on me. Overall, it really is an amazing foundation because I do have oily skin and it managed to keep my face looking like I had just applied it. By the end of the day I did notice some oil around my nose and cheek area, but it wasn't too shiny. It felt really smooth and silky on my skin, and gave good coverage as well. I just wish they had a better shade selection. I definitely advise that if you want to buy this foundation, either buy a shade or two lighter than your skin tone, or buy one or two different shades and see which ones fit your skin tone better.
I've just started using this foundation and I am SO HAPPY to find a drugstore foundation that actually matches my light yellow undertones! I use nude beige and I have only been using this for two days now so far and it lasts the full 10 hours I wear it without a powder with only some minimal wear by my nose due to me wiping and blowing my nose! praying I don't get any breakouts from it but so far so good! :)
This foundation was a miss for me. Though I loved the pump applicator and that this foundation was long- wearing, the color oxidized on me really bad. The color selection was also very limited; there were a lot of shades with pink undertones, but not too many with yellow. And to top it off, this foundation made me breakout. I would not recommend this foundation to those with sensitive, acne-prone skin.
I love so much this foundation! I have norma to combo skin and this last me all 8 hrs! The only problem that i don't like is for the use in the nights because have terrible white cast when take pic! Horrible! But i love this for the day!
Perfect shade for me. I wear classic ivory. (I am buff in both colorstay foundations). It lasts all day and covers very well. I use the beauty blender sponge and it blends beautifully. It also helps with my oil which is an added bonus. I do still wear a primer and concealer even though this claims to be 3 in 1 but that's my personal choice. I work long hours with food and in front of grills and ovens and this foundation lasts perfectly all day when doing this.

This foundation is full coverage. The shade range, though not exceptionally broad, has very good colours in it unlike a lot of drugstore foundations which have the most unrealistic pink or yellow colours. So if you fall within the range, picking a colour shouldn't be too hard. Also, you can shear this foundation out so it doesn't look cakey. But here's the big trouble, it broke me out. Within 2 days I had four new pimples and I don't often break out. So with that ended my enthusiasm with Covergirl and my hopes of finding a drugstore foundation, back to NARS tinted moisturizer I go. If this doesn't break you out, go for it just be sure to not layer it too much because it will look cakey. Just be weary when you try this out.
