I love this foundation!
I have been using Almay skin stays clean for years, however, my skin was starting to become not so clear so I decided to try Covergirl after seeing numerous ads for it.
I brought the covergirl clean sensitive foundation and it is amazing!
Awesome colour, my skin has no reaction whatsoever (it actually looks less red than when I was using Almay...perhaps I had a reaction to that) and I have had no imperfections since.
I will definantly keep using this foundation and I encourage other people with sensitive skin and with problem skin (greasy, oily) to try it to. Its so cheap too!!
Only negative is the bottle, wish it had a pump or something
I like this. It's very easy to blend and not cakey if you use the right amount. It's finishes almost matte and keeps the oil away for a lot longer than most foundations for oily skin. The foundation is think though, it's hard to get out of the bottle. the packaging could use some work for a foundation that is that thick.
I have to say I love this stuff. I've jumped back and forth between all kinds of foundations, both department and drug store brands, and this is one of the only products that's gotten the job done plus it's cheap. I've got combination skin with an extra oily T-Zone and this foundation really controls my oil, works well over suncreen, and provides buildable coverage (great for my many spots). A couple whiteheads popped up at first, but that's nothing unusual for me. Staying power is average; I've had to reapply every 3-4 hours (full disclosure - I live in Phoenix and I've only been wearing it since May, so it may be unfairly disadvantaged). Add the Cover Girl's oil clean control pressed powder and I'm good to go.
This foundation is amazing! It blends skin tone and a little makes it look perfect! And it's really cheap! But the only bad thing about it is after a few hours you have to touch it up.
A good inexpensive foundation. It blends nicely, evens out color. It doesn't cover blemishes very well but a concealer should take care of that. One thing is you can't sweat much or it will run so its better to set with a powder, can be a bit fragrant.
This really goes to show you how different things work for different people. I know this isn't exactly a favorite for everybody, but it worked very well for me! I liked the finish, and while I wouldn't call it oil "control" it does offer a matte finish and is suitable for combo/oily skin. This is my favorite foundation, at least for now! We'll see if it ends up being HG for me. :-) And the price doesn't hurt, LOL...
I have tried many foundations, and this has worked the best for me.
It is far from perfect, but it gives decent enough coverage without feeling too heavy, and more importantly, without breaking me out.
If gently applied, I can get it to cover blemishes that are slightly flaky without looking too obvious. It blends well, and I don't feel like I have to use a ton of it to cover my face. It is definitely one of the least greasy foundations I have ever used, but like all foundations, it starts to rub off and look a bit messy after a few hours of wear (even with primer and setting powder)
I hate the packaging, I really wish it came in a pump bottle rather than a screw-top bottle.
I will continue to use this foundation because it is cheap, it doesn't have any negative effects on my skin, and the texture of it is very easy for me to blend.
Don't like this so much. I was looking for a water-based foundation since they generally work better for my acne-prone skin. I used to love the Maybelline pure makeup which has been discontinued which was also water-based. This has a very light coverage which is what I was looking for (think tinted moisturizer) and didn't oxidize on my skin. What I hated was the smell and oil-control. My forehead gets pretty oily and even set with a powder, I still managed to look like a grease-slick after an hour with this on. Not to mention it broke my skin out and looks cakey. Blending this in wasn't a problem though. Kinda wish I didn't buy this. Brought it on sale for $12 NZD.
I am not a fan of this product. It appears very caky when applied and does not keep my skin shine free for very long. The texture is thick yet does not cover blemishes very well. This foundation does not leave a natural finish and almost accentuates imperfections with its overly matte, drying effect. I will not buy this again.
I hope this helps!
As much as I didn't want to believe it... this stuff made me break out pretty badly. My skin has never been this bad. As much as I didn't want to believe it... this foundation was the culprit. I got pimples places I didn't even think was possible.
Anyway, regardless of the breakout, this foundation has other things that are definatly not going for it. First thing... this stuff oxidizes pretty bad on me. It does stop oil, but in the process it clogs my pores pretty bad. The coverage is pretty light, and I feel like if I tried to build coverage it'd get really dark and oxidize more and get cakey. Also... the colors are not the same throughout the line. The pressed powder I got to match the foundation was in natural.... so I got the foundation in natural... good idea right? WRONG... this stuff was too dark.
But I gave it a few stars because it has a nice finish to it, the price is alright, and it does do what it says, controls oil. I've really liked covergirl but this stuff was a miss for me.
