      Comments about Cover Girl CG Smoothers AquaSmooth Compact Foundation:

      This foundation is my all time fav! I've been using it since 8th grade & I'm 25 now. I have some freckles, which sporadically cover both of my cheeks & my nose & this is the only foundation that covers them on its own. Trust me, I've tried them all & own 1/2 of them. It's an excellent full coverge foundation, which leaves a smooth, matte finish. It can be used w/ a light hand for lighter coverage & all you need is NYX's dewy finishing spray to change the finish. It doesn't go blotchy or oxidize over time. It's great for any kind of skin. It's the most versitile foundation I've ever come across. I highly recommend this foundation!

        Try it!!

        Comments about Cover Girl CG Smoothers AquaSmooth Compact Foundation:

        I have been using high end foundations until this summer when I got a little tan and needed new color. Not wanting to spend a fortune, I remember having used this in the past and decided to give it a try. Overall I am very happy with its performance! While it may not last all day, it's easy to throw in your bag and reapply as needed. Price is great!

        I've used this foundation off-and-on since high school, and it's been my favorite. It's lightweight but buildable, and has good coverage. It feels good on the skin, and dries to a powdery (kind of) consistency. It doesn't last ALL day, but it'll get you through a work day, for sure.

          Comments about Cover Girl CG Smoothers AquaSmooth Compact Foundation:

          I literally just bought this after 15 minutes ago and took off my old makeup (cover girl ultimate finish) and I realized that this stuff is probably gonna be my new go to foundation. It covers very heavy which is nice since I have acne, and is soft to the touch. Only thing I don't like so far is that it appears to need both a primer and a matte top coat, at least for me. I can definitely see my pores.

            Comments about Cover Girl CG Smoothers AquaSmooth Compact Foundation:

            I have been using this since high school! I have always loved it and even though I have tried out other foundations I keep coming back to this one. I have VERY dry skin and most foundations cake up on dry skin and just make it look worse. This foundation is very creamy and moisturizing which is my favorite thing about it. It blends well and is easy to apply a little or a lot, depending on what kind of coverage you want. I will say that this product may not be the best for anyone with very oily skin or someone looking for a matte finish. But I find it to have a natural, dewy finish that lasts all day.

            The shade was too light, but I had used product before and felt the quality was better. The coverage isn't very good. I wouldn't recommend. Sorry

            Comments about Cover Girl CG Smoothers AquaSmooth Compact Foundation:

            I have been using this foundation for over 10 years now. I have pale, combination, acne prone skin and it is very difficult to find a foundation that is neither greasy or dry. Aqua smooth has the best texture for any kind of skin tone. It isn't greasy or dry. It blends in really well with my pale/reddish skin. And it really does make my skin look smoother. Also, you can't beat the price. The only complaint I have is it doesn't stay on all day. I like to use this with a tiny bit of bareminerals foundation over it, it looks perfect. I am very picky and I haven't found anything better in over ten years. I am loyal to this stuff!

            Comments about Cover Girl CG Smoothers AquaSmooth Compact Foundation:

            I love this Foundation. It's easy to apply, good for all skin types, covers well, and is nearly perfect.... except...I hate the compact it comes in. It's huge, ugly and not really worth all that space for that silly little sponge. I wish they would change this compact to something more travel friendly. This would then be the most perfect Foundation out there.
