Review for: Medium Beige, Buff Beige more...
So I love this foundation! Its been the only one that I can just throw on and doesn’t look dry on my skin. My face has been so dry this winter so maybe that’s why. Anyway, the only problem I have is the shades. I have a warmer undertone and like foundations that look more yellowy orange. I first got medium beige and the tone is perfect but it’s too dark. I made it work when the weather first started getting cooler. Then I think my skin lightened up and it was just too dark too dark to wear. I tried buying the next two shades down to try out but they were soooo pink. Then the third shade, Buff Beige, down was a nice tone again but way too light. Now I mix the Medium Beige and Buff Beige and it’s my perfect match. I wish there was an in between warm shade. Not super light warm and not super tan warm. I don’t mind because the price is right so I’ll buy both shades because I love this foundation so much. I just would rather be able to have one bottle of foundation that works for me. The foundation is really beautiful and skin like. Not greasy or oily. And it smells so clean and nice. I’m in love with the looks and the smell. This is still my all time fav drugstore foundation, even when having to lix two shades.

⏩REVIEW⏪Lets talk about this baby for a minute!! Im currently loving this foundation, Ive been trying it out for a month or so & Im so ready 2 give you guys my Final Review. So quick and simple 👇 .
🔴🔴The goodss-
Super hydrating
Doesn't clog pores
Natural skin finish
Long lasting
Has a pump (hell yeah!) .
🔴🔴The not so goodss-
It darkens once it dries, about a shade darker
The scent is a bit strong
Light to Medium Coverage *If you have a LOT 2 cover I dont recommend it. Instead get the Clean Matte BB Cream which is STUNNING!!* .
⏩⏩NOW- My skin is super oily and this foundation is definitely made towards Dry Skin or Combo. Butttt I just love it!! I just set it with powder once applied & blot through out the day and Voila! If you dont mind doing these steps then I assure you that your just going to LOVE IT 💚 Get it at CVS,Walmart,Kmart or Walgreens.

Really enjoyed this product. My biggest downfall and the reason why I rated it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it doesn't follow the same shade range as all of their other products the numbers are not the same and they don't have as many shade options so unfortunately even the lightest shade in this for me is a little too dark I have to mix it with another Foundation that's lighter in order to be able to use it which is a bummer because I honestly could get away with just using this foundation on its own coverage wise if it came in my shade. That's a huge letdown for me because Covergirl has always been very good about having shades that work well for me which most other brands don't do. That being said this product does have a scent to it. Most people do not like that in skin care but I do not negatively react to it and I am a fan of the scent. Very good coverage would say it's medium to full coverage and is buildable.

Review for: Ivory more...
A little bit about me: I am very oily, with sensitive skin and acne.  I look for foundations that are matte, long wearing, and medium to high coverage.  I also have neutral/pink undertones, so it has been hard to find foundations that aren't too yellow.

I knew that this foundation was not matte since it is described as hydrating and luminous.  My face gets dry in the winter, and I wanted to give this a try since I heard so many good reviews.  First of all, I love that this foundation has a pump.  I also enjoyed the smell, it is a little flowery so if you don't like scents in foundations then beware.  It applied nicely with a brush and  a sponge, and seemed to have medium coverage.  I set the foundation with a powder but I still became oily after a few hours, which I expected.  The only con to this foundation is that the shade was a little too orange for me and I got the lightest shade.

Review for: Classic Ivory more...
For only $10, this product *delivers* a GORGEOUS, healthy-looking finish! It's definitely on the "full" side when being labeled medium to full coverage, however it is a super hydrating formula that blends out INSANELY well (super smooth, too!) I've used this foundation as a base with SO many different powders, creams, setting sprays, etc. this month just to really give it a run for it's money and my face has held up PERFECTLY almost every time!

It smells SO pretty - it smells light and feminine upon initial application (though the scent doesnt linger long at all) which was a nice little bonus!

Sadly, this product does oxidize and actually is a centimetre off of my skin tone so now that my little trial with it is over, I am going to set it aside until mid-Spring when my skin starts warming up 😊 For only $10, this foundation is a drugstore must have! Super impressed with CoverGirl 😶

Review for: Classic Ivory more...
After reading great reviews on this foundation I decided to try it out. I found it on clearance for $5 at Ulta and had a $2 coupon so I only spent $3 for this foundation. And I'm glad it wasn't the full price I paid. This foundation is heavy on my face, settles into my fine lines, and causes my face to itch. It also just sits on top of my skin so if my face brushes up against something it comes off. I tried multiple application types to see if I could get better coverage, but I didn't find this to be a full coverage foundation. The redness in my cheeks still showed through and the dark circles under my eyes was still present, even after using concealer as well. I will give them credit for the color. Classic ivory was a perfect match for my skin which is something I rarely can find. COVERGIRL Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation

Review for: Warm Beige, Other more...
I love this stuff. This is my favorite drugstore foundation hands down! It makes my skin look beautiful and healthy and radiant and it's very long wearing. I have normal/oily acne prone skin so I do get a little bit oily on my nose after 5 hours but that is expected with any foundation because I wear make up for long periods of time. Any time I wear this I get compliments on my skin and people often think it's a high-end foundation. It does have a fragrance to it but nothing crazy and it will go away. I kinda like it. I use this on my clients Too. Only downfall to this foundation is that I do not have an exact match. I have to mix two colors (warm beige and golden tan) I have very olive/yellow undertones. For shade reference, I think I'm a NC 42 in Mac. I use Chai in Laura Mercier Flawless fusion, 332 in maybelline Matte and poreless, caramel in NYX total control drops, Syracuse in NARS sheer glow, Estée Lauder DW 4W1 is too light/pink 4W2 is too dark.

Ever since I bought this foundation I was skeptical at first but there's a lot of foundation in it even though it's a bit pricey. It makes my skin feel like I don't have foundation on it's very light but had buildable coverage and isn't cakey on the skin. It's easy to set and makes your skin feel very mosturized because of the vitamins and sunscreen already in it. It doesn't have a bad smell and I love that it has a pump and the packaging is simple but sleek. I tend to use illuminator and mix it with my foundation for a more glowy look but also so I won't have to put on highlight if I don't have time that's a trick I learned. It gives u a natural glow but the illuminator is optional.

Review for: Natural Beige more...
Oh cover girl... All of my fav beauty gurus raved about this and I honestly have mixed feelings I feel like every cg foundation I try is always too drying to my skin. It always makes me look cakey and dry no matter how little I use. This one only sort of made me look dry it's hard to explain but I still really like it the formula is really pretty and blends really nicely. It covers well I'd say med coverage and the finish is just very pretty and natural looking. It wears well throughout the day tho I do set it with a translucent powder. Idk tho some areas of my face like my tzone still look a tad dry like my nose and in between my eyes so I normally mix this with another hydrating foundation and I love it.

Review for: Creamy Natural more...
I have a lot to say about this product here so listen:
-light weight
- medium to full coverage (is honestly In the middle but you can make a full coverage without making it look cake it)
-hydrates the skin
-amazing smell
-wears long
-doesn't clog pores
-long lasting
-skin like finish
-It oxidates (meaning it turns a shade darker once in the skin)

Final thoughts: I totally recommend it if you have oily skin used some powder to set it and I think is mazing forgery skin or combination, is buildable and I just love it, the best drugstore foundation at the moment.
