Love this foundation. I have a few different brands of foundations for a couple different skin type combinations, but I find myself reaching for this one more often than not.

Recently, my skin has been much more on the oily side, and despite my best efforts, I look very shiny by the end of the day. Saw a YouTube video and the girl recommended this foundation. Went to my local drug store and found it on sale. I have another foundation by CoverGirl and the colour names are the same across the brand (best thing ever!!) so I picked myself up a bottle and zipped home to test it.

My face starts matte, and by the end of a 15+ hour day, it's more of a dewy finish, but that is a far cry from oily! It is buildable, but one application does the trick. I still do need concealer for the circles under my eyes, but that's a constant requirement for me.

No scent, creamy liquid consistency, lots of applications in the bottle and regular sales on this stuff in stores.

Only downside is that this bottle does not have a pump and the foundation doesn't like to come out on its own. I end up shaking the bottle upside down for a moment, taking the lid off and scooping out a small amount with the end of a Q tip and put it on the back of my hand. I apply with a makeup brush, but have used a beauty blender and it has worked out nicely too.

Have repurchased. Will continue to repurchase.

I have combo skin and this just did work for me. It supposed to be clean feeling and help with oily skin but I did not find it did either of those things. It never really dried down and left my skin looking very wet and sticky. As for the color, I find the oily range to always go orange on me no matter what color I try to use. The clean foundation for normal skin works 100 times better for me.

I have the shade 105 Classic Ivory and oily - combination - acne prone skin

Pros:
Matte finish
Lasts a long time
Blends easily
Good price + availability
Covers acne well


Cons:
The products is hard to get out of the bottle, or way too much comes out at once.
The shade is on the pink side and doesn't quite match my neutral skin.
Smells strongly
Sometimes clings to dry spots around acne

If you think this foundation will help you control the oil on your face, think again. This foundation goes on pretty normal coverage but dries very cakey if you don't put only a very small amount on. I'm still in school and this foundation lasts 3 out of the 6 hours I'm there and then shows my oil the rest of the day. The packaging is dumb like really a glass bottle who is that good for? When I run out of it I'm not buying this foundation again. I don't know about the other options of this foundation like not the oily skin version but this one is terrible for oily skin and combination skin like mine.

I bought this product for the first time to use in a production that I was in. It was long lasting, had nice coverage, and it didn't break me out. It was very hard to get out of the bottle, but I chose to credit that to the fact it was being stored in a cold and damp dressing room. I decided to repurchase, and it is still impossible to get out of the bottle. I can really only put on minimal amounts, and it feels very cakey on my skin. If this came with a pump, I might be able to reevaluate this product, since it kept my skin pretty clear. However, until then I won't be repurchasing because it is just too much of a hassle to use.

I was so disappointed with this foundation.
It was recommended to me to control oil on my skin, and boy did it do the complete opposite. I was looking for a replacement foundation for less money (I usually use Kat Von D's Lock-It Liquid Foundation) and thought this might be a good alternative.
When I tried to apply this foundation, it was streaky and did not blend nicely. The shade matched my skin tone well, I will say that, but after only 2 hours of sitting at home doing nothing, my face was shine central. I repowdered it, and an hour later I was shiny again. I had high hopes for this product after reading reviews but it did not work for me at all.

The bottle is also an inconvenient shape and it is very difficult to get the product out of the bottle. I would recommend this foundation to someone looking for light coverage with combination skin, but for us full coverage seeking, oily skinned gals, do not use this!

This foundation is so bad I want to slap myself silly for having bought it. I just always saw it in the store and decided to try it -shame on me.
I got the shade 'Soft Honey' because all the other ones looked too pink. I have very yellow undertones. The entire shade selection sucks. This turns orange so bad. It looks really harsh in natural lighting. So embarrassing.
The finish is sort of matte but it doesn't control oil well at all. Coverage is really light & it's just impossible to build up especially when it oxidizes into that horrible orange hue.
I wouldn't even recommend this to beginners. There are a lot of better options at the drugstore like Maybelline's Fit Me matte + poreless foundation. That one is around the same price and is a lot better.
I just don't know why I even wanted to try this. All my experiences with covergirl foundations have left me very disappointed. If you're thinking of purchasing this please skip it. You'd be very lucky if this foundation works for you. This was a straight up miss for me.

First of all, the bottle says the formula is oil control but I don't find it oil-controlling and it looks like grease was splattered all over my face within an hour of applying it. Second, the consistency is pretty lame, it feels lightweight though. Third, the coverage is not that good, light to medium. And to top it of, you'll literally have to scratch the liquid out of the bottle for it doesn't have a pump.

I will be ranting about the CoverGirl Clean Oil Control Foundation in the colour Tawny. This is the second foundation that I purchase when I begin my makeup obsession. I chose the darkest colour and hoped for the best not knowing it was going to match or not and if it did not match, I will still rock it. Now, the reason why I got this foundation was because it says friggin' OIL CONTROL on the bottle and having combo/oily skin loved that. Well, wearing this foundation I never applied a primer because I wanted to see the wear of the foundation without primer and I did not own one. I applied this foundation to my face with my E.L.F Powder Brush and I really like how it looked. But I swear, I got oily in the next 10 to 20 minutes. On top of that, the foundation came with no pump and you literally have to hit it at the back of your hand to get some product out. I was so mad about this because I had spent $10 or over on this crap and it was not even oil controlling. When I was applying to my face, I noticed that it was not even a matte or semi matte finish, it literally look like grease was slathered all over my face because my face was so shiny. Another thing, the bottle was friggin' heavy, like Covergirl why is the bottle so damn heavy for a crappy foundation. You are probably wondering why I didn't return is because one I threw out the receipt and two they didn't take back open cosmetics so I was screwed. I wore this foundation until it was done and never ever purchase it again. I would never recommend this to my family and friends who has oily skin, because they will truly hate this foundation.

I have a love/hate relationship with this product. This was my first liquid foundation that I bought as a young teen and used it throughout high school and my early 20s. It seemed to work find back then and my skin looked pretty flawless. I guess my skin has changed since, as I feel like it doesn't do much for my skin anymore. It feels very heavy and thick but I do like the shade "Buff Beige". I find it also now accentuates my fine lines and dry patches throughout my face. Since this foundation doesn't seem to do the trick anymore I have been on search for the next best thing, but I keep going back to it since I havent found anything better.

Overall, I'd say this is a great foundation for a young girl just starting to wear makeup and wants good coverage for acne. Its pretty cheap compared to most Liquid foundations now a days, perfect for a tight budget aka a high school girl.

I'd say its worth a try.
