Powder -Bare Escentuals - Get Started Face Kit in Fairly Light/Light

I liked this foundation only in the sense that it did control my oil all day long. Other than that, I saw nothing really outstandingly special about it. This foundation irritated my skin and even though it did not make me break out into a zit, it did make me break out in a rash. The coverage was decent. Again, nothing amazing. It was not exactly what I wanted, but not completely sheer either. It was only decent. I tried to sleep with it on (sounds stupid, but in the informercial they always talk about how its so pure you can sleep in it).. Long story short, never again. It made my face itch like crazy the next morning. Overall, all this foundation did was give me excellent oil control with decent coverage. Other than that, all it did was break me out into rashes and irritated my skin. $60 down the drain there..
This foundation did work great for me. It even out my skin tone perfectly, by lunch time and even the end of the day my skin never once turned orange, and it did not make me breakout at all in a zit or rash. It also did not irritate my skin and gave me perfect coverage whilst blending in with my skin tone. The only problem was the oil control. This did not up well, at all. It literally was a grease slick at least an hour or two before lunchtime. If this would have had a better oil control, I would have loved it more. Yet, it did not. If I do see this again, however, I will still buy it because it did work perfectly in those other areas. I'll just need a good oil control primer, nothing big.
This product was pretty amazing! It held up my oil control perfectly, so I did not look like a grease slick by the end of the day. All day, it controlled my oil perfectly. It did not make me break out, I could not feel it on my skin, it did not irritate my skin, and it gave me the exact coverage I need! The only thing that turned me off from it was that it did not even my skin tone out so much. In short, I still looked kinda orange (basically from my facial redness showing through the light foundation). Other than that, this foundation is gold. Oh, and the formula I used was for normal/dry skin. It still worked! I love this foundation, and with a good anti-redness primer, it will be the perfect foundation. :)
This made the liquid foundation have more coverage, but standing alone, it does not do much. It does not hold up oil control that well, it does not give me the coverage I want, and it does not even out my skin tone or anything. In general, this only good to use on top of the liquid foundation because it gives it a better coverage. Stand alone, I would not buy this again. With the liquid, still no.

I did like this foundation because it was lightweight feeling, it blended into my skin tone without turning it orange, and it did not make me breakout. However, the oil control was horrible and the coverage did not meet up to par. The coverage was easily fixed by putting the powder on top, but the oil control was not. I did like this okay, but the oil control was not good enough for me so I won't buy it again.

Okay, so I got this with the foundation to clear some blemishes.. It did clear up the blemishes, but it also irritated my skin, made it red, and did not necessarily do a good job at concealing the zit. If of anything, it made it more obvious, even though the color I got matched up perfectly with the foundation shade. The problem I found with it is, it does not blend. At all. It's like those too-thick, too creamy concealers. It covers up the problem, but it's impossible to blend and looks obvious. In short, this is another product that failed me. Oh well, there's always more.
I. Hate. This. Foundation. It gave me the coverage I wanted, it did not irritate my skin.. Yet, it felt greasy on my skin, it made me break out, and it did nothing to even out my skin tone. In short, by lunch, I looked like an orange grease slick. Which tends to happen often with these types of products, when it comes to me at least. That and it also felt really heavy on my skin. I could feel the foundation on my skin, it was disgusting. Cover Girl, in general, is a hit-or-miss thing. Either you'll really, really love it (like for example, the one thing I like most from them is their mascara) or you'll really, really hate it (like this foundation).

I did not like this product much at all.. Most foundations tend to make me break out, so I thought 'hey a skin clearing one, that should fix it!' It did not. This irritated my skin really, really badly and tended to look orange and shiny by lunch time. This did not control my oil at all, by lunch my skin would look like a grease slick. Yeah, it was horrid. Needless to say, I will not buy this again. It did not meet up to my standards on most of my points for a good foundation for my skin type. The only reason why I did not give this a one is because it gave me the coverage I want. Other than that, never again will I buy this.

I love this foundation! I cannot say anything better about it; it gave me the coverage I desire, it evened out my skin tone, and it controlled my oil pretty decently. Over time, it actually calmed down my redness and the more I wore it, the less red my face became. It was amazing! I love this product, but there are only two downsides to it. For one, this foundation is hard to wipe off from your face at the end of the day. I had to wash my face twice to get this off. Another thing, I did not get the all-day matte look I usually expect from more expensive foundations (as it did only control my oil for only an hour or three), but I'll let that one slide. This stuff worked too good on my skin for me to even think about rejecting because it did not hold up on the oil control all day! Love it, if you have sensitive skin that's also oily, then get this. I suggest getting an oil control lotion or primer though to make the oil control last longer.

This was the worst foundation I have ever used on my skin and I have used a lot! This made my skin Snooki orange, it made my skin itchy, it did not hold up the oil control at all, and it irritated my skin so badly that I felt like my skin was burning with this product on it...only after fifteen minutes of using it! This cost me $27 and if I'm going to be spending money like on any make-up it better be worth it! This did not live it to it's claims, it was horrendous, and it was the worst foundation I have ever used. No other can be worse than this. None. I'm lucky that Kohls was willing to give me my money back after using this only once.. Purchasing this was the biggest mistake I made for my skin.
I did not like this product much at all.. This was almost as bad on my skin as the tinted moisturizer! It did not give me the coverage I wanted, it melted off my face, and the powder got everywhere! I did, however, use this on top of another foundation and found that it worked better that way, but it still did not hold up the oil control at all. It still came off my face way too easily. Overall, the only thing I liked about this product was that it did not irritate my skin and it did a decent job evening out my skin. Other than that, I would not buy this again.
Pressed Powders -Physicians Formula - Organic Wear Pressed Powder

This held up the oil pretty good, not the best oil control, but it did make my look flawless and even toned. I did not like the way brush felt against my skin, it actually kinda hurt to use it. One of the other complaint I have about it is that it's bit chalky looking, even if you only use a small amount. It also took a few uses to get the coverage I wanted, but other than that it was pretty tolerable. If you have mildly oily skin/combination skin and are wanting to try something from this line, this is the only good product because even the oil control is not the best of the best, it will make your skin look flawless. Well, it did for me at least. Still, I would not buy this again, only because I need something with better oil control than what I was given.

I have very, very fair oily skin which is also sensitive. So you can imagine the hell I go through finding a good foundation which works for both! In general, this brand usually works best for me. This product, however, was horrid. It did not give me any coverage at all; meaning it didn't cover my flaws at all. All it did do was make my face look orange in natural sunlight! Orange as in bad-spray-on-tan orange. The smell of it is horrid, it literally spilled out of the tube and made a mess all over my sink. Oh andit did not help with the oiliness whatsoever. This stuff is so greasy, it made my skin oily without trying. It was, in short, one of the worst beauty products I have ever used on my face. One use...one use was all it took for me to hate it and never, ever want to use it ever again. This is a product I would recommend for dry skin which is not sensitive, uneven in skin tone, break-out prone, nor combination. Esentially, dry/normal skin.
