EDIT: After using this for a few days & trying different application techniques I have to agree with another reviewer that this foundation looks the best when applied with the fingers! I tried using 2 different brushes and a sponge & got less-than-desirable results. Fingers seem to give this the look that makes me love it so much.
I have to praise Cover Girl for this foundation. The company has really improved its products in the last few years and this foundation proves it. I'm fair with neutral undertones (for reference, NW20 in MAC is a good match but slightly too pink). I picked the color 825 Buff Beige. It matches me perfectly. I have combination skin that leans toward dry during the winter, oily in the summer. This foundation lasts all day with only one blotting with an oil-blotting sheet. I have good skin with some redness around my nose and on the apples of my cheeks. I also get the monthly blemish or two. This covered all the redness, a blemish and my slightly dark under-eye circles. This is the first time in a while that I've been able to skip concealer! So far I love this product and I hope others will love it just as much. One word of caution: In my opinion, a whole pump at one time is way too much product. This foundation dries quickly, so I would use less than a pump at a time and work in sections on the face. I used a whole pump the first time and it looked a bit thick and cakey. It wasn't a big deal; I was able to sheer it out with a damp sponge and it looked perfect. Other than that, this is a terrific and beautiful foundation! Thanks Cover Girl!
