Not for me...
I bought this foundation awhile ago and had used it once or twice. Well a few weeks ago I saw a review about it and wanted to try it again - now I know why I stopped using it! It looked terrible; didn't blend well at all and looked flaky and almost kind of powdery. Maybe because it's winter? I'm not sure but it was awful! It does smell nice though, I might try it again in the summer and see if that makes a difference, but for now - 2 stars.
this is a great foundation for summer! its super light-weight but you can build up the coverage. i personally dont like heavy coverage foundation so this is perfect for me especially during the summer time! it doesnt sweat off my face, though i found if i dont wear a base or primer underneath it only lasts for a few hours, not enough to get me through a whole day of school. it can also sometimes make you look cakey if you dont apply it very well. but overall i really do like this foundation. if it wasnt for the price i would definitely buy it again, it cost $18 here in australia, i would just wait until it goes on sale.
Perfect For Summer!
I have been on the hunt for a new summer foundation and this was one of the foundations I picked up. I am in the shade Chestnut and I have combination/oily skin. I really love this foundation because it blends in with my skin very well. At first I thought this shade (Chestnut) was too dark, but the ore I buff this foundation into my skin, the more it blends. As far as wearing a full face of makeup in the summer, I always do because it honestly doesn't bother me, but if you want a foundation that is buildable, I would suggest this one. I say this because some days I want more of a tinted moisturizer look than a full coverage face and this foundation allows me to have both. A couple cons of this foundation are the color selection because of the lack of darker shades (but I guess that's what the Queen Collection is for), the formula because it's not as lightweight as advertised, and if you have a warmer, darker skin tone like I do, this foundation doesn't really bring that out. However I do like the fact it has SPF which makes it perfect for summer!
- Formula (buildable)
- SPF 10
- Formula ( not super lightweight as advertised)
- Color Selection (needs more darker color selections)
I got this because I saw that one of the colors matched me perfectly. I was so excited! I wore it for a couple days, I was pleased with it. It wasn't heavy on the skin, but definitely not light weight. There's a strong Cucumber water scent and it had a light coverage, and not really that build-able. But it broke me out like nobodies business! Not a keeper.
I got this soon after it came out and I was so excited for it! But when I put it on, it didn't blend well and looked cakey and splotchy. It also made it look like I had a ton powder on my face.
Taylor Swift looked better with this!
When I saw the commercial, and Taylor Swift's flawless skin, I really wanted to try this! For being a Covergirl product, it worked ok. I had trouble finding my match, and it didn't blend in real well. But I will admit that the coverage was good, and the product felt light on my skin!
I love this product for summer time! It seems more like a tinted moisturizer, because it is so light. It gave me the perfect amount of coverage. I would recommend this product for anyone that likes coverage without the heavy feeling that other foundations give you.
I used this foundation for quite some time. For a while I thought it was the best thing ever. I will admit it is very light and makes my skin feel like it can breathe and you can definitely tell it's a natural product. But it left me feeling greasy and gross after applying it. I already have combination/oily skin so it just enhanced the oilyness. And even after applying powder within the hour it looked greasy and disgusting all over again. It took me some time to realize it was the foundation doing this, but once I did I never picked it up again. I do not recommend this product. Yuck
I absolutely love this foundation, although I think it should be marketed as a tinted moisturizer. I find that if I want to get medium - full coverage, I have to use 2-3 layers of it. However, it feels really light on the skin and it has a really nice color selection! It's really affordable to!
You only need a little of this. I love this!! I turn it into a tinted moisturizer and only use a little of the foundation because it is so opaque. It doesn't feel like a heavy cakey foundations I've tried. This is such a nice product. I did purchase in the summer so I can't use it anymore because i've lost my tan :(
