Best TM I've tried
I would normally use foundation because I have a lot of acne scars, but it's never good to wear it too often. I got this tinted moisturizer in Australia (they don't sell Covergirl in Singapore..boooo) and I have to say this is amazing.
I was previously using Natio's TM, and while it did its job, it made my face produce more oil than it normally does. This one, however, glides on smoothly, moisturizes, blends well and the best part is - my face is matte all day even without powder to set.
Coverage-wise, it's obviously not gonna be as fab as foundation, but it sure does even out my skin tone nicely. I cover my other blemishes with a concealer and I look fresh faced.
Plus, it doesn't cause breakouts or irritation, almost scent-free and has SPF 15! Staying power is pretty good as well, I didn't need to touch up for about 6-7 hours. Definitely will repurchase!
This tinted moisturizer is great if your just lounging around the house all day, or are going to the pool/beach for a quick splash. It's even perfect if you just want to look just a little bit better for a trip to the corner store. It is so lightweight, and gives such a sheer coverage. It glides on smoothly, and is easy to blend. If your looking for a heavy coverage, this is not the product for you. It gives a very light/sheer coverage, so sheer that you can hardly notice you are wearing it. I personally mix it with a little of the Revlon's PhotoReady foundation, and it's perfect. This is amazing for summer, so natural :)
Good tinted moisturizer
It gives light coverage, but good enough to cover redness and even out your skin tone. It's feels moisturizing, I feel no need for a primer when I use this. It has a dewy finish. I don't usually set it with a powder when I wear it. I love how it feels so light on the skin, I forget I have it on. Blends effortlessly on my skin. It can easily be applied with your fingers too. By the end of the day, my face will get a bit oily wearing this but I don't really mind since I mostly use for the daytime.
Beware, CG is now marketing this as a "BB Cream" which it is not!
I was looking for something lighter for summer and since my face is okay (other than a blemish/cyst a few times a month) I felt it was time for something lighter as to not add to the breakouts. I saw this at Target as a BB Cream, but since it was sitting next to an old label CG Smoother, I as not fooled. I decided to buy this anyways because it was cheap and I've liked the other CG foundations I've used in the past. I tried it yesterday because I just wanted to do something natural-looking for a day a work. Before I put this on, I applied my everyday moisturizer for acne-prone skin. I put this on with concealer and then blended powder on top of it to keep it still. It blended pretty well, didn't feel *too* greasy and stay on decently for the 8hrs I had it on. I did notice the shine that others have talked about due to the SPF. It seemed to matte out a bit with the powder I put on top of it, but it was still there. Overall, I'll continue using this for those days where I'm leaving the house but don't want to wear a lot of makeup.
The only thing that I like about this product is that it does a decent amount of moisturizing. I don't like that there is only three shades. The light to medium doesn't quite workout for me because it has warm undertones, so my face tends to look like I've been out in the sun a little too long. I also don't like that it barely has any coverage and that it has a very low SPF. For me, it is not worth purchasing.
