First off I love the packaging of this. It's just like the previous blue pocket powder, so slim and sleek. The sponge it comes with is great too.

The coverage of this is light. It will make your face look more even, color wise and texture wise, but this will NOT cover acne scars, dark spots or anything major like that. It helps disguise redness but obviously not completely, the coverage IS light buildable, not medium to full like some other reviews have suggested. They must have never used a medium buildable or full coverage foundation before and/or dont have severe spots and blemishes to be able to tell the difference.

The finish is completely matte. Flat matte. Since my skin is combo oily, it doesn't stay matte for very long. Its stays true matte for less than an hour. By the 3 hour mark it looks satin natural, I'm slightly shiNY in my t-zone. So it does have some oil control, but it's not great. It's light enough that you can touch up and not look caked up. It does have some glitter in it. You can only see it in direct light, they are VERY small particles. I dont like that but they are BARELY visible.

I got the color medium/deep and that is slightly too dark and too cool for me (NC 40-43), but since it's sheer I can pull it off decently. The color selection sucks at my drugstore, there aren't many colors for medium to dark warm skin tones.

This doesn't break me out or clog my pores. I think this is best for people with normal and combo dry or combo oily skin. Super oily people will be dissapointed with the oil control for sure. They will have to prime with and absorbant product.

I only use this when I'm at home or not really going anywhere were I need to look more polished. I just look better with it on than bare faced. I have a lot of acne scars so I feel better if I when I wake up I powder my face a bit! It's great for that. I haven't used it as a setting powder because of the color, but I'll try it out and update.

I’ve used this for years and I’ve always loved it until I started getting serious about skincare. I have dry, sensitive, acne prone skin and I’m not sure if this is breaking me out. I love the sponge it comes with, it just gets so dirty so quickly and falls apart before finishing the powder. It has great, buildable coverage and even using this everyday, I feel it had a good amount of product to last me several months. I am trying a different pressed powder in hopes of helping my acne, but I have a feeling I’m going to return to this. I use this with a B.B. Cream underneath and I do think it wears off before the end of the day. This is worth a try if you’re looking for good, drugstore make up.

Este producto lo utilizo todos los días. Mi tono de piel es media ni clara ni oscura y mi cara tiende a estar la mayor parte del tiempo grasosa. Desde que uso este producto he visto una disminución en la grasa y suele durar varias horas sin tener que aplicarlo durante el día. Comparado a otros productos me ayuda a no sentir mi piel seca o grasosa. Su precio me parece accesible y se puede encontrar en diferentes tiendas o farmacias.

I have very fair skin, so its hard to find a color that will work for me because every color is to dark for me. I use the color fair and it covers great and the color is perfect! I'm also combination skin so I always set my concealer with a powder and it stays on all day. The formula is very light weight and would say its a medium to full coverage, with one swipe it is medium if you need a little extra coverage use a second coat. The applicator makes it alitte difficult because you can only really use on side of it so you have to dip into the bottle once or twice depending on how many coats you would be using. It doesn't cling to dry patches on the face either which is great, it doesn't settle into fine lines or wrinkles either.

Tried this in a pinch and purchased from a drug store. The coverage is okay but doesn’t give me as much coverage as I’d like. This seems to be a typical issue with such light shades which is to be expected. Not a huge fan of the applicator it came with but all together a cheap product to throw in your bag for touch ups in emergencies if needed.

I used this product a while back and I thought it worked well! A little chalky but it what it claimed to do. I usually use foundation powders over liquid foundation just press it into the skin with a dense synthetic brush. Fair price point, nice component. Comes in a variety of shades but they could always use more. Overall nice face powder.

I am usually very satisfied with cover girl products but there is something about this powder that I just didn’t find appealing... I believe it caused me to have breakouts as well as it didn’t really blend that great and was very noticeable... I’ve known it to work for other people but I did not have a great experience with it.

This foundation has been an absolute life savor. I was using a different version of CoverGirl powder foundation before I found this version. It doesn’t even compare! It goes on beautifully and stays on. It gave me a huge boost of confidence during a long period of hormonal acne. I would HIGHLY recommend this powder foundation!

THE SHADE RANGE IS NOT OKAY, ITS SAD AND SICK. I got the darkest shade and it was so ashy it was barely able to be my under eye powder. ( SHADE NW47/50 MAC STUDIO FIX FOUNDATION / MAYBELLINE MATTE & PORELESS 355/360 for color reference ) it was too ashy and had some flashback. as a dark skin girl/ woc i wouldn’t use it

The Ready Set Gorgeous concealer is my HG!! I've been wanting a good medium coverage drugstore foundation and have been curious about this one in particular. I've never tried a powder foundation, how does this hold up as compared to the liquid?

Is it good for normal-dry skin and is it better than maybelline fit me powder?
