I used dream matte powder and then decided to try the covergirl sensitive skin powder. Normally I have 1-3 zits on my face and after using this powder for a few days to a week my face literally had 18 zits on it. I spent a month wondering why my face was freaking out so bad when I finally was like DUH the only thing I've changed is my powder!! I stopped using the powder (went back to dream matte from maybelline) and within a week and a half my average 15-18 zits went down to about 5 and currently those ones are going away. This is the WORST product!! Keep your receipt so you can return it if you do decide to try it and end up not liking it. My advice is don't even try it.
Okay I love this powder, I have it in soft honey....if you are looking for light coverage during the day this is for you. If you are a girl that needs heavy coverage then keep moving. I love this powder because it feels like i don't have anything on when I am wearing it and it doesn't break me out like most powders do. I use it with my maybelline fit me concealer and have a nice flawless look all day, without the feeling that you have makeup caked on your face. Would definitely buy again.
This powder definitely is not the best out there. But if you are poor and are looking for something cheap that will cover up minor discolouration and flaws then this will do. You have to blend it as it will leave your nose looking powdery but if you take your time you should have no problem. This puff it comes with does get saturated fast and you must replace it as it will stop picking up powder but for the price of it you can't complain. I have bought this in Classic Ivory many times over and will always return to it.
I am a huge cover girl fan. I saw that my best friend was using this powder, and she has very sensitive skin and rosacea. If it was working for her skin, it would definately work for mine.
I think this is a decent powder, but i think i got the wrong colour for my skin. My mom told me to get it darker than my skintone, but i wanted one that was a shade lighter. If you were looking to buy this, go for the lighter shade, it will look more natural. The packaging is very nice, and it comes with a puff (it's great quality!).
Again, cover girl has done it. I'm impressed. I paid $9.99 canadian for the full price powder. So inexpensive and really worth it! I give it four lippies because it's a nice powder with great packaging.
I am not a fan of cover girl. Firsrt off, all their slogans and commercials show the "clean" "fresh" make-up! But I don't like their powder at all! Even though the sensitive skin one is for SENSITIVE SKIN, it still has fragrance, and generally made my blemishes or nay flaws worse by the end of day!!!
Ok, first of all let me say that I am not a huge fan of Cover Girl. The last time I tried one of their powders I vowed to never do so again because it was so chalky and awful.
Lately I've been pretty broke as I can't find a job and I spent the money I had on summer clothes and makeup. So I really have to learn from this and not spend so much. But today after looking at my shiny nose in the mirror I caved and decided I'd go buy a pressed powder. i'd thrown my other pressed powders out because I thought I'd be using a powder foundation and could just reapply that, but I ended up hating powder foundation.
Anyways, so I went to Shoppers and looked for the cheapest, but closest-matching shade of pressed powder available. At first I wanted Revlon ColorStay, which was $17 without tax! I ended up buying this, CG Clean pressed powder as it was $9.99.
I love the price and the face that it is good for sensitive skin. My skin is very oily but it cant be sensitive. The packaging is chunky and hard to open.The shade Ivory matches great though, and it's hard to find a good drugstore pressed powder that matches my skintone. Most importantly I love the results- matte, shine-free almost airbrushed skin, with no cakey, powdery effect.
I'll continue to use this and see if it breaks me out or anything. If it doesn't, well, Cover Girl can count me in a customer for life!
Love that there's no fragrance, hate that it breaks me out. Seems less powder-tastic than other CG pressed powders, good color too (bought this in Ivory)---but, CG powder products do not agree with my acne prone skin. Cool, sleek package re-design, but I agree that it's tough to open too so it loses marks there also.
This is my very first powder, so i am not sure what to expect. i like it, except that it looks very powdery, and not very natural. but i use bronzer on top..to kind of cover the spots that look to powdery. i will probably find something else when i run out.
Oh, how do I loathe thee? This stuff is terrible. I bought it to control my wild oily shine because I had heard that cover girl made great powder for sensitive skin! But I didn't think to try it until the new formula was out and the pretty packaging lured me in...Not only did it do nothing for my shine, it clogged my pores and.. the WORST part...it accentuated fine lines I didn't even know were there! I'm 22. I didn't think I had to worry about this, not yet! It made my skin look older when I was wearing it. So not only did I not like how it felt or made my skin react, I know my skin will show lines when I wear it. Sadface. :( cover girl fail.
I used this when it still had the old packaging, This stuff looked horrible on my face. I would not purchase this ever again.
