I used this as my daily foundation for years, mostly because it was one of the few drugstore brands that actually had a good skin tone match for me. I used Ivory, their palest shade. I'm quite fair skinned, and somewhere in the cool to neutral range. It was all right for the cost but never great.

The Good:

It's light coverage, and a smooth consistency that gives a …

Purchased Classic Ivory and Buff Beige. However, shades run lighter than norm. In most CG foundations, I wear Classic Ivory (NC15/20) because of melasma making my face darker than my neck. But in this foundation, Buff Beige was good, but still pale on me. Normally Buff Beige would run too dark, so something to note.

I purchased to try something lightweight/light coverage, but after …

I really can’t decide about this foundation. I have extremely sensitive break out prone skin, and this foundation has never once created even the slightest pimple or blemish. That’s one of the main reasons I keep going back to it. It also feels like a moisturizer, and actually looks weird and unblended on top of a moisturizer, so I can skip the moisturizing step and put it right on which is …Read more

I have drastically combination skin: super oily T-zone, and flaking, sensitive dry spots on my cheeks and the tip of my nose. Everything either slides right the oily spots, or looks like sandpaper on the dry. In an hour long frustrating search in Target to find yet another option, I grabbed this as a last resort. Holy smokes. I don't know how it works, but it balances EVERYTHING: covers …Read more

Best foundation I’ve found in a long time! I’ve used Revlon Colorstay for combination/oily skin (even though my skin is quite dry, the combo/oily formula worked great for me) for several years but the most recent bottle I purchased had been reformulated and it became streaky upon application and cakey if I tried to fix it. I tried Benefit Hello Flawless but found it a bit thick, and the coloring …Read more

My winter skin's extremely dry lately. Thought this would help, but all it's done is made my face itchy and get tiny little bumps. Also, don't get why Soft Honey is way too light as it's what I usually buy in CG products for half the yr. It won't blend in and leaves a chalky white cast. I'll stick to CG Luminous or Ready Set Gorgeous foundations.

I should have tried this much sooner. Although I do not find it to be particularly hydrating, it is a medium-thin liquid that has light-to-medium coverage which is sufficient to mask redness but you will need a concealer for blemishes. To achieve medium coverage, I found applying with fingers a must. This blends so well that you can pat on extra in needed areas and it easily blends in. I do …Read more

I have not only very dry skin but acne prone skin. It has been a struggle finding not only the right skin care routine for me, but finding a foundation was a nightmare. It was either dry flakes or break outs, or BOTH. Cg Smoothers by cover girl boasted on the bottle that it was hydrating and on the back said it won't clog pores. So of course, after returning another failed one, i purchased …Read more

This is my go-to foundation for an natural everyday look. I have very dry skin fair skin with freckles. 705 ivory pretty much is my exact skin colour, with pink undertones. :)

It isn't particularly hydrating, but it isn't matte. I would say that this foundation gives a natural finish, it looks like a second skin. It is SHEER coverage, more for evening out the skin tone than …

This product is pretty good. It's middle of the road, extra light coverage foundation that doesn't settle in fine lines or slip on the face into a mess. It will stay put without being high maintenance and needing lots of touchups.

The problem is that it's only sheer to light coverage, which I wasn't expecting. Also, I had to buy Buff Beige, which is too light for my …
