If you have oily skin, do yourself a favor and skip this foundation. It has a satin finish (should have been a red flag for me since I have very oily skin), and less than two hours after applying this, my skin looked awful as it was shiny and slightly orange from oxidation. This stuff transfers and moves around on my face really easily, and by midday I noticed patches of product where it had worn off. It does not have the staying power or matte finish like ELDW, which is my fave foundation so far. For reference, I use Mac nc 25-30 and shade 30N in this foundation matched me well until it oxidized.

Terrible for oily skin. It looked good for about 20 minutes. It is too wet, it slides off, wipes off, and creases and settles into every nook and cranny! I was so disappointed!

This is my favorite cream foundation. I was a little surprised by the negative reviews. For those who find it difficult to work with, I suggest watching tutorials on how to use cream foundations (I like GossMakeupArtist, Sam Fine, and Lisa Eldridge on youtube). This stuff can be sheered out with a wet sponge/brush or can be layered to give full coverage and it still looks like skin! For reference, I'm nc37-nc42 in color, with VERY yellow undertones. I am a m60-m70 in this product and it's almost a perfect match (it could be a little more yellow, but it's more yellow that most other products.)
My favorite thing about this is that it doesn't oxidize (change color) on my skin. Almost everything else does. Also, I'm prone to breakouts but I haven't had any problems with this. I would definitely buy this again.

I've had training on this product, and it's a lot of work to get the right coverage. Plus with my oily skin, it really didn't work.
I like the ingredients and what the company is all about, but this product really doesn't do it for me.

I have severe acne scarring and require a thick foundation. This is not a terrible product; however for the money and more adequate coverage, I will stick with Dermablend.

I really like this as a concealer. As a foundation, not so much. It's so thick, think cream cheese. I felt as if I was making wrinkles when applying it the way I was told to by the woman at the counter. But, with a good brush, I use it as a concealer and "layer" on coverage as needed. It gives good coverage when paired with a powder. I don't think I'll need to buy another one given that I use it so rarely. I can't imagine wearing it all over on a hot day, mixed in with sweat and oil. The line is durn expensive too.

Finding a good foundation is difficult for me because even though my skin is super fair, it has a yellow undertone. Most foundations made for fair skin out there have a pink undertone and when I put them on, my face turns orange.
This product is among the few that I have used that match my color perfectly and doesn't even look like I'm wearing make up. I am impressed with the coverage. It can cover completely or lightly, and can be used even as a concealer. Yes it can, get on stuff, but it's no different than any other foundation I've tried in the past. The fact that it has built in SPF is nice too.

Use this as a concealer everyday! It's all I need too! It works really well with the beautyblender. Best part is it doesn't make me break out and if i set it with powder lasts from 8am to 10 pm ! Amazing holy grail product !!!! My boyfriend doesn't even notice! He says it looks really nice because it looks natural :) not caked !

I believe the updated name for this product is Total Cover Cream Foundation. That's what I'm writing my review for....
I applaud this company for keeping the "bad" ingredients (like parabens, mineral oil, etc) out of their products, but I was NOT impressed by this foundation's performance. I applied this using the recommended cream brush. To have any sort of coverage to my moderate acne/acne scars I had to apply a good 2-3 layers (and even then my imperfections were visible). I used a powder to set everything, but literally 30 minutes later my face was an OIL-SLICK. Then throughout the day it seemed to literally melt off my face...good thing I tested this out on a weekend and not during a work day! :(
For an excellent full-coverage foundation I highly recommend Kat Von D's new tattoo liquid foundation instead (if interested, you can read my separate review on this). :)

I cant believe people like this stuff! It's absolutely horrible. I bought it because my friend recommended it for the great coverage. I have hyperpigmentation so I've been looking for a really good foundation that is full coverage yet feels light, and stays put for over 12 hrs. Sadly, this foundation isn't it, too bad because i really wanted to like it.
I will admit the coverage is great, but it doesn't really matter because it literally rubs off on everything. I always put a setting powder but it doesn't stay put at all. I have to walk around hoping my face doesn't accidentally touch stuff. I have very oily skin and this foundation only made it worse. Also the texture is so thick, I learned that a little goes a long way. Even after putting on my setting powder my face still feels sticky from the foundation. I figured since the coverage is so good why not use it as an under eye concealer instead, boy was that a bad idea! This stuff sits deep into every line, pore, and crevice. The wrinkle under my eye that i once thought was small now seemed to grow into the size of a football field! Okay I'm exaggerating, but it did make all my lines and pores more obvious, and no woman likes that.
Now I'm using Revlon's colorstay foundation. I can't believe this drugstore brand is better and so much cheaper. CoverFx is way too expensive for how bad it was. The only good thing is the packaging, I guess.
