Actually like this! Can be used for a concealor or a full face foundation. Great coverage and nice smooth texture. The only problem is it comes off super easily when water hits it. So, if you cry with it on you'll look like a streaky mess. I love the packaging. Also, when you buy it you can't see the color because it's completely closed up. But the little picture on the outside shows the color pretty accurately. It's really cheap so just go for it. I like it

i got one of the little samples with a sponge at cvs. one of the colors was wrong but the other one worked. great texture, creamy and smooth. coverage in on the far medium side and the color seemed to work well, no pinkness or orange casts. but this is really for dry skin, so my combo face showed some oil soon after. great if you can pull it off though.

I really liked it the first day. I applied it with a flat top brush and my skin looked so smooth. Today however, when I opened up the compact, the foundation was oxidized. THE WHOLE THING!! It literally looked 2-3shades darker & no I hadn't left the compact open exposing it to air...so I'm not sure what the heck happened. I can only assume the actual color pay off will be darker once applied.

I actually really like this foundation. I wasn't expecting anything special from it, but I bought this when I was running low on powder and figured I'd give it a try.
The packaging is not attractive and it's bulkier than necessary. It definitely looks like it came from the 90s. But the product inside is what counts. I chose the shade Classic Ivory and it matches as well as I wanted.
It has a creamy, lightweight texture and goes on very smoothly. I just use the basic little sponge it comes with and it works fine that way. It has a slight cooling sensation when it goes on which feels nice. I didn't notice a scent or anything, I'm glad that it didn't have that traditional CG powdery medicinal scent.
The coverage for me is about medium. It covers any dark spots and evens out my skin tone in a very natural way. After a few minutes, it kind of "dries down" to a satin finish. So smooth and natural looking. It doesn't feel greasy or look shiny. I didn't find concealer or powder all that necessary afterwards, but sometimes I'll do a quick swipe of powder to finish.
Throughout the day, my skin continued to look smooth and even. Never felt oily or shiny. But if if you're prone to midday oilies, you may need to touch up with powder.
Honestly, I really like this foundation. For $7, it works great. So easy to use! Though, this does accentuate dry spots so be sure to use a little moisturizer before applying.

tried it out because i have dry skin. sadly, it made my skin look more dry, feels even more dry too. coverage is medium, but made my skin look worse because it accentuated the dryness! so this did not work for me. i stopped using it after the 3rd try, i know im suppose to give things a chance but my skin really did not like it. also, color matching is hard because you cant actually see the product, you have to go by the packaging, which for me was off.

I have been using this foundation for about 7 yrs and have not purchased other foundations since. I love that it comes with a sponge applicator and even a small mirror so I can put it in my purse and it's lightweight and doesn't take up hardly any room. My skin can get oily throughout the day but this stuff stays on and doesn't look cakey. It's a nice creamy texture that glides on and blends well. It's a decent price ($8).. could be cheaper but oh well. I highly recommend buying this product!

I have bought this foundation twice and will continue to buy it. I use the Buff Beige and Classic Beige shades. I love the coverage and the light texture. Makes my skin look flawless and this is the foundation I reach for when I am in a hurry. Blends really easily and stays put all day. I do dust a little bit of powder on top.There is slight cool feeling as you put it on. I use a wedge sponge when I put this on. I really like it, I recommend trying it.

I use MAC Prolongwear and love it but was running low, placed an order online and got an email saying it was back ordered. I needed something to tide me over so I decided to try AquaSmooth. I am pale and pretty neutral, can wear both NC20 and NW20 depending on the formula so i guessed that Ivory would work and i was right.
I love this stuff! It glides on super smooth, then i set it with some loose powder and i'm good to go. I have combo skin so i have to watch that foundations don't disappear from my t-zone and flake around my chin and this does neither.
I also love the fact that it's gentle on my budget. I think I may stick with this and cancel my MAC order!

I have used this on and off for many years and just sort of re-discovered it yet again. I only have 3 foundations that I trust enough to keep in rotation that I know won't clog me or worsen my acne; Clinique Almost Powder foundation, Illuminare Extra Coverage mineral cream foundation, and this. I am NC20-25, and Buff Beige is a lovely match. Lately, I've applied it differently and really like the results. I usually use the sponge included which is actually very nice. But lately I use my Real Techniques Buffing Brush, and I just dot it on the foundation then dot it on my skin and swirl/buffit in. It gives a nice sheer finish, sheerer than with the sponge, then I take a little more over spots and areas I needto conceal. I powder my nose, and am set. I think this foundation is under-rated, and it actually gives a beautiful finish. I think some people that dislike it probably use too much, it's easy to over apply, especially with the sponge. I love a foundation that is intensely pigmented so I can use a tiny bit over my whole face, rather than using one where I have to apply more product to get the same coverage. I like less-is-more.

Let me say that CG foundations bring memories of orange skin and a smell. Anyone recall fresh complexion?
Anyway read some good reviews on this one and was looking for a going into fall foundation. Found a few maybes at sephora, but since I'm thrifty (cheap) decided to get this. I have 30ish, sensitive, combo skin with fine lines around eyes. I got this in classic ivory. I applied w flat fdn brush (ecotools).nothing underneath. This is pretty great stuff. It blended well, was smooth, didn't make me look dry and Cakey, but I wasn't greasy at all. Wore fine during workday, no color changes. Dusted w powder and did blot nose a couple of times. I really like the wear. By 530pm my cheeks were not red and still covered.
I will buy again and hope it continues to perform great . No fragrance or chemical sunscreen. My skin hates those two.
I think 30ish and up combo/drier skin may really do well w this. I think in my 20s I was too oily for it to work. I did read natural ivory is a more pink shade beware. Since compact is closed, I looked at color of powder next to this and matched shade that way. Around $7! Love!!! Oh and I've been getting compliments on how nice my skin looks. Who knew covergirl could do that? :-)
