I really like the Covergirl Clean Liquid Matte Foundation, especially once I found the shade that best worked with my skin tone.
I found that it applied well, with a nice, smooth texture that provided easy blending and sufficient coverage. I was able to use a foundation brush or a makeup sponge with great results either way. It provided successful coverage of the dark circles under my eyes as well as the rosy tone of my cheeks without extra bulk. It provides a smooth, natural look without building up in the chickenpox scars on my forehead. It is lightweight and doesn't feel heavy.
I have also successfully used this as a spot concealer to cover blemishes or dark spots, with a loose or pressed powder to finish.
My only negative note would be that I did find prolonged use and not washing it off at the end of the day resulted in blemishes, but I found that mixing it with a moisturizer helped prevent this without compromising coverage or duration (I also got better about washing my face!).

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!

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

Review for: Classic Beige more...
I remember I first tried this foundation in high school after finding it in an empty medicine cabinet (still full!). Not very sanitary, I know. But I was just starting out and all I saw was an exciting opportunity to try out a new foundation. This seems to be a new version of the makeup, but it's still kind of the same as the one I tried (which smelled like Noxcema, haha). It looks and feels very fresh and clean, but it definitely does not control oil very well at all. Yet for some reason, I remain attached to this. Perhaps it's the pretty glass bottle, or just the memories. But yeah, I don't think I would recommend this if you have very oily skin or high expectations. It's a nice starter foundation though, and I'd imagine that this would be okay for girls who only wear foundation in spots and not their whole face like I do.

Review for: Classic Ivory more...
This was the first foundation I ever wore when I first got into makeup. It was pretty inexpensive. This one is specifically for oily skin but they have ones for other skin types as well. There is no coverage to this product and it oxidizes horribly. It is also hard to get out of the package because there’s no pump. The shape of the bottle is also really weird so it takes up space as well

I hardly wear makeup. If I do it is a rare thing. But this year I am trying to wear makeup more. Simply because it does make me feel better about myself. I have some roseca on my face that causes me to look as if I've been drinking lol. So I have been using this foundation for several years. It covers everything I want covered perfectly. I would recommend it.

I finally found a drugstore foundation that works wonders! I love the formula of this foundation and it truly is matte & long lasting throughout the day. It does an amazing job covering my acne scars and pimples. I will definitely recommend this to anyone who’s looking for an affordable foundation! :) COVERGIRL Clean Matte Liquid Foundation

Review for: Classic Tan more...
I found this at Ulta on sale for $3.00. I really was skeptical since my face does break out very bad. I have combination acne prone skin and I love this foundation. It's not super matte its more of a demi matte skin like finish. This is a great everyday foundation because it isnt heavy or cakey. The color I got blended perfectly into my skin.

Review for: Ivory more...
This was my first liquid foundation, and I loved it! I bought it a few times. It lasts a long time. It was a tad patchy, however this was when I blended it with my fingers. I haven’t tried it with a brush or a beauty blender. Works better on dry, non-oily skin. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good drugstore foundation.
