Review for: Ivory more...
I am forever searching for a drugstore holy grail foundation. I LOVE Covergirl's powder foundation, so I thought I would give their liquid foundation a try...and I was thoroughly unimpressed.

The packaging is such a strange choice - the bottle is an odd shape, and there's no pump, so it's hard to even get product out...which is a pain. The foundation advertises itself as matte, but I'd call it semi-matte at BEST, leaning more towards the dewy side. It's a buildable, medium coverage foundation, and it blends out nice enough, but it just doesn't last on my oily skin. I set this stuff with powder and end up having to re-powder after only about 4 hours.

Maybe I'm just incredibly oily, but for a foundation that markets itself as being able to "control shine", it fell flat for me. I won't be repurchasing.

Looking for coverage, but don't want to look caked in the face? Well this is the right foundation for you. I purchased mine about 6 months ago and use it often. It's easy to apply, and made for those of you who are like me and have oily to combination skin. This usually sales $7-$12 in drug stores and possibly cheaper online. If you can catch a cheaper deal then you're winning! This foundation has a medium coverage, which means you can still glow without creasing or shinning too much. I recommend using some setting powder, as you would any other time. Although it says it's matte, it's not as matte as most would assume.

To begin, a lot of people DO NOT like covergirl products! In my personal opinion and with my experience I loveeee this product in particular. When I first started doing makeup this was a cheap choice for me, I had a low budget, and running a YouTube on a low budget was extremely hard! This is my holy grail foundation and I always make sure to keep one in stock with me! Super nice coverage, not thick but not like runny, doesn’t react bad with my freckles and does not dry out my skin, and was super affordable and something you should put your money into!! I loveee it

Review for: Warm Beige more...
Covergirl is my go-to makeup brand. It’s perfect for my skin. This liquid foundation is probably my second favorite. I always try to go for a matte finish and I love the matte finish this gives you. The downside to this foundation is that it’s very very liquidity and isn’t one of the best smelling foundations but that’s just preference. It doesn’t make my skin oily or break out like other foundations I have tried. This isn’t my go-to foundation but I wear it when I’m going out for a little me time to get food or for an alone movie night.

Review for: Creamy Natural more...
ive just started using covergirl clean matte and my makeup looks so much better. i try to use oil free products to prevent any break outs so this product was really beneficial. i’m very self conscious so i always wear makeup so this has really prevented my skin from breaking out like it used to when i wore other makeup and it also gives me a little boost of confidence!

Review for: Medium Light, Buff Beige more...
I'm a college girl. We all know how that goes. Buying expensive top of the line makeup just doesn't always happen when you're living on a budget. I will say that for the price you pay, this full coverage foundation works wonders. It has a clean formula so it doesn't leave a residue on your skin after washing it off and I never breakout from it either. I do always top it off wth a finishing powder or a powder foundation to make sure there isn't any shininess.

Review for: Ivory more...
This is definitely acts as a full-coverage foundation. It is very smooth and doesn't "sit" on the face, but rather blends in. It goes on very well with the e.l.f. contouring kabuki brush, which has thick, soft brushes. It lasts all day and I would highly recommend it for a drugstore affordable, non-irritating foundation! The only counts against it are that it is watery (the bb cream is better in that regard) and looks wet on the face. This can be fixed easily by using MAKE clear finishing powder for a beautiful matte finish.

Review for: Classic Ivory more...
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.

It tends to be a little cakey on me cause I have huge pores but it doesn't break me out worse then I already am which is way more important to me. I am still learning to apply make up and stuff and learning what products and techniques work for my skin and dont have much experience to base it of off and I have never worn anything but drugstore make up so... I have no idea if this is really a good product or not but I like it
