I actually love this foundation BUT I think it is causing me to breakout. I haven't been able to figure out why my face is breaking out but I am almost positive it's the foundation. It's the only change in my beauty routine. Unfortunately I am going to have to stop using this foundation.
SELECTED SHADE: soft honey (NC37 for reference)
- medium to very full coverage
- blends easily
- long wearing
- has a pump
- doesn't oxidize
- oil control
- shade selection
- accentuate dry spots
Comments: This is a breeze to apply. It feels like a primer going on. The finish is matte, but not flat or dull looking. I would not recommend this to anyone with dry skin, though as it will accentuate any dry spots. I get a few hours of oil control, which is normal for me. The shade selection is what bothers me because they're very pink based and I have yellow undertones ("soft honey" is a good match for me though). A huge plus is that I never feel this on my face even as I do start to get oily. There's no heavy, gross feeling during midday. I forget I even have it on. I also didn't experience any oxidizing. Overall, a good foundation and replaces the now reformulated Revlon CS.
I've been using this foundation faithfully since it came out in 2013...it's that good :) Medium beige is a good match for me; the foundation offers medium to full coverage and has a soft, matte finish. The pump bottle packaging is ideal and very practical. It was kind of expensive as CVS ($11.99), but I got if half-off with some coupons and a sale. I highly recommend this foundation!
Bought this foundation a week ago in 955 soft honey, I found it to be my closest match. I'm a NC 35-40 in MAC foundations for reference. I have dry skin and this foundation works well for me it doesn't look cakey at all and the coverage is wonderful feels soft and applies very smooth on the skin. Lasts pretty much all day on me. It does turn slightly darker once it dries on your face but not so much where I would have to go down a shade. I don't find that it oxidizes on me at all ,as I read in some other reviews that it oxidizes to an orangey colour. Overall love this foundation only reason I gave it a 4 out of 5 is cause I find it does have a slightly pinky tone to it and I have a strong yellow tone to my skin as with almost all drugstore foundations the colours run a little pink. Otherwise would repurchase.
I love how it goes on, really smooth! I also like the pump. However, they color changes into a orange color later in the day.
This is such a good foundation, it covers everything and lasts forever. Looveeee it
One of the few drug store brand foundations that I have actually repurchased. I recently have been completely sick and tired of spending so much money on foundations that are just "ok" I have extremely oily, acne prone, and super sensitive skin - pretty much the most difficult skin to deal with and to make happy. Unfortunately. I always thought, the more money you spend - the better quality you get. Well. Not always the case. I have spent well over $50 on a single foundation, ending up with the same results as this one. I suppose I will always be out there searching for a HG product, since my skin keeps me on my toes. But for now, this has held up to many of my high expectations. Price is great. Packing is perfect (who can complain about a glass bottle, with a pump?) every liquid foundation should come in this packing! It's got great, build able coverage (it doesn't completely cover my acne scaring, but hides it enough for me to be happy) and surprisingly is keeps me matte almost all day (I get a bit of oil buildup around my nose) As others have said, go for a shade lighter than what you think you are, as it does get a bit darker after applying, and sets. Definitely worth trying.
I think it is very good for my skin type but if you do have oily skin it probably not the best because I have noticed on my acne that is oily it's not the best for so either I would get a bronzer or cover up for that but if your skin is dry then it will be perfect full coverage but I don't know how it would act to someone with oily skin
I don't even know where to begin with this product. Because of all the raves, I REALLY wanted to like this product, I did. I did like it, for the first.. couple hours, maybe. When I applied it, I loved it. It went on smoothly, I loved the finish, and I had high hopes for this foundation. But, after a couple of hours, it started to oxidize onto my skin into an orange. Then, after going the entire day, I noticed a rash on my upper neck and jawline, and my foundation looked hideous.. and patchy. I was skeptical of even buying a Covergirl foundation to begin with, and now I remember why.. I do not ever invest in any Covergirl products.. for reasons like these.. they SUCK. The ONLY decent thing about this product is the pump...but that doesn't even matter when you're getting a crappy product in the container. However.......I do understand that all skin types are different.....so it MAY work for another skin tone and skin type..... so I say: do what I did. Buy it, keep the receipt, test it out for a few days, and if it doesn't work for you, return it and get your money back :)
So far I'm totally impressed. This could be my HG, but I'm going to give that rating a few days! I have red/pink undertones in my face and it's always been difficult to find a foundation that evens my skin tone without having a stark contrast to my neck. It's equally difficult finding one that doesn't turn pink or falls off by the end of the day. So far it's fantastic!
