Disappointment. This looked awful on my dryish winter skin. On my dry areas it flaked up terribly which is not the most flattering look. Strangely enough, as dry and matte as the initial finish was, after awhile my face started to feel really greasy. I wiped my forehead with a blotting paper and it was covered with grease. Weird. Cover Girl's shades run really light these days so keep that in mind when trying to pick a shade. I normally wear the second lightest shade of a foundation but the #2 shade Classic Ivory makes me look like Casper the friendly ghost. I think the claims about it adjusting to your skin are BS, I just don't see how any foundation could do that. I think they get away with making this claim because the coverage for this one is fairly sheer, so you might be able to get away with a shade that is not quite perfect. I do like the pump packaging and it does have a very smooth finish thanks to all of the silicone. You can get a similar ultra smooth silky feel from L'Oreal's Air Wear foundation, which is also a silicone-based foundation.

The reason this doesn't rank a 5 is because the lightest shade, 405 Ivory, is a tad too peach. However, it blends fairly well, with an "airbrushed" finish. I like how it feels to the touch, very light, matte, and silky. I have skin that is on the oily side of normal, so I didn't notice much of the flakies some MUAers talked about. May repurchase.

Hmm..I so wanted to like this. It sounded great, since it seemed to have everything I want in a foundation: oil free, lightweight, good color match, nice coverage, etc. However, this will not be replacing my NARS oil free or LM.
The pros of this foundation are 1. The pump dispenser which pumps out nearly the perfect amount. 2.The foundation is really silky and lightweight feeling on the skin 3.The color really does begin to "match" your skin perfectly after about a minute or so.
Now for the cons: Well, there is only one con and it's big enough to be the reason I won't be repurchasing this or probably even using it again...it emphasises dry patches I didn't even know I had!! Seriously, I have very oily skin that I didn't think was dehydrated. However, when I applied this foundation it seemed to make my pores look bigger and all of a sudden I saw flakes on my nose and forehead! Yikes! Needless to say this did not give me that flawless, perfected look that I like a foundation to give.
UPDATE after two more tries: Yep, I still don't like it. After a few hours my skin looked awful. I had to go and take it off. This showed every pore, little flake, it separated on me,,,ick. I am super oily too!!

Great packaging. I love the pump dispenser and wish that all my skincare came in this packaging.
I bought Classic Ivory last night on sale at CVS ($6.99) and ran home to try it - in my head I had already decided that it would be my favourite foundation, I'd forsake my VL WC and Becca LSC forever, blah blah blah.
Well, my combination (combination, not dry!) skin looked SOOOO dried out and awful with this foundation on. It emphasized pores on my chin, fine lines under my eyes, any flake or roughness anywhere. Super chalky. Even with a moisturizer and primer underneath. It aged me about 10 years.
The self-adjusting claim is a crock - this is a fairly sheer foundation that may be a little more forgiving shadewise than more opaque products. It does NOT change to match your skin.
I think that this one will only be an option for people with really oily skin. Sniffle.

Another "nay" on TruBlend. Since this is new, I decided to try it out. The pump dispenser is handy - I loved that part. The consistency is SO thick - almost like spackle. Lighty, airy, spackle. You have to rub and rub and rub to get it blended in, because it went on so streaky. And the coverage is nil. I'm convinced I had to blend this stuff so much I rubbed it all right off my face. I have normal skin with t-zone oilies, and am always on the hunt for something that controls the oil on my nose. This didn't do it for me. Plus, even though I got a shade that looked exactly like my skintone, and it didn't blend in very well at all. I suppose I could try the next shade up, but I don't want to waste another $6.99.
I'm liking L'Oreal's new True Match much better, especially because they offer samples.

Well, I hate to be the first to rant about a new product, but I hated this stuff!
The texture is really weird. To me, it felt like silicone mixed with powder. At first, it feels like putting spackle on your face until you blend it until there's almost nothing left.The coverage is very light, and you can't build on it without becoming a cakey streaked mess. The color does blend in seamlessly with your skin, but then again, I think that anything you have to apply so sheerly to prevent caking would. And my skin isn't that bad - I'm not one to put on tons of foundation. I have really dry skin, no problems ever with greasies or shine, but after about three hours of wear, I looked like I hadn't applied any makeup, and my face was SO shiny!! I didn't put any powder on top, though, so maybe I'll try it that way.

This is an early rave for this foundation. First, it comes in a clear pump bottle (smart for dispension) that is in a box (smart you can tell if it has been messed with) and costs around 8 dollars. It's claim to fame is that it adapts to your skintone creating a flawless finish. The new display with it even had some corny thing saying try to pick a color close to you but don't worry too much because it will blend in. On the shelf below it was the new MaxFactof adapting ones as well in the EXACT same packaging with same claims... only difference was the price and colors.
I got this in classic ivory and tried it on in the parking lot and ran back in and exchanged it for Creamy Natural. The ivory was too light and the natural was must better. I have FFF skin with very yellow undertones. In general, I do not like Covergirl but I thought I would give it a try on the search for an HG foundation.
I have never ever felt a texture like this has before. It is very light and like a foam or a mousse like another MUAer reviewed. I applied way too much the first time and had to wipe a little off. It took a little while to dry. It dried to a somewhat satin finish, I wanna say leaning towards matte. It reminded me of a nice air-brushed finish. I really liked the way it looked. The color definately blended in well but I mean most foundations that match your skin color do.
I have only used this a few times but I wanted to write a review since it is such a new product. I will do an update on this after more usage. I would recommend this to someone looking to try out a new foundation and likes the idea of a mousse texture. UPDATE::::::: fell in love with Bobbi Brown's foundations.

Not sure I would classify this as a liquid foundation - it is more like mousse. Anyway, I think it is awesome. Goes on really light and then dries to a very smooth finish - I am guessing there is silicone in it to make it so smooth. I have really hard skin to match - fair skin with freckles, but this looks really nice. I am sold on it.
UPDATE: 1/10/04: massive breakouts from this!!! darm, it looked great but I never break out and this really broke me out badly!
