Most Helpful Positive Review Let there be LUMINOSITY!
I bought this two days ago, and have tested/worn for two days straight now. Both days I wore this hydrating luminous foundation from 6 AM to 9 PM (15 hrs). It stuck like a Velcro ball to my Velcro paddle catcher. By the way, I work 6-2 at my career & then come home to my second job as Mommy, wife, & caregiver. I don't get to hit the fluffy sack till 9:30 PM most days. That's why my makeup is on sooooooo long, and why long wear product is sooooooo fascinating to me. The more it sticks through my frustrated hand swipes across my face, random tickles that must be scratched, blowing my nose, my babies pinching my cheeks, or French bulldog kisses... the more I'm fascinatedly (not a real word) addicted! I love trying new hydrating foundations for I am plagued with the dry skin. Not normal to dry.... DRY SKIN. This is just another foundation in my arsenal of hydration. I tend to get bored with foundation EVEN IF I love it. So I'm always on the look out for a new product to add to my lovelies, and my lovelies are all drugstore foundation. Mama be blue collar and high end is not beating food on my babies' table. Also keep in mind, I am a natural finish kind of gal. Full coverage is not necessary for me. It's not conducive for my real life career and I do not have acne or discoloration (that bothers me too much) to blend out, camouflage, buff away. So keep that in mind for my review. I do have speckles of freckles (aka angel kisses) that I love & a tiny beauty mark above my lip that I must let shine through with all their glory. This foundation is delightful in natural outdoor setting. Looks like skin. I do not like looking as if a mask of makeup is on my skin, because I spend a lot of time outside due to owning four bulldogs and birthing outdoorsy kiddos. All in all, my experience of wearing this foundation for a total of 30 hrs has proved to me long wear, luminous, hydrating, natural, & breathable. People have also commented how healthy my skin looks with a smooth/buttery/creamy looking texture. Of course it's all pretend. The foundation is what is doing all the work, because this Mamacita's skin be dry as a desert.
Most Helpful Critical Review Great Color, but "Bumpy" texture!
I absolutely love the clean matte BB cream so I was excited to try this. I was even more excited when I saw that they had a lighter shade, porcelain, which turned out to be a perfect match for my skin. I wish the clean matte BB cream had this shade! But when I applied this foundation, I found little crumb-like balls in the formula. After I would smooth the liquid over my skin, I could literally wipe the crumbs off of my face. They have almost a wool-like consistency. I do not have dry flakes at all on my face, and I could see the little balls in the foundation as I squirted it out of the bottle. I'm really disappointed, as I feel like I would have loved this foundation!! Maybe it was a faulty bottle?
Reviewed by 2024 customers Honestly the worst
Sarah from US
This is the grossest foundation on the market. I bought two shades because I thought I would match one based on the color on the packaging, but it came out ghostly white and I looked ill. This cannot be blended with a sponge or a brush and the product picks up on itself, leaving patches of a white cast and patches with no product.
This also stings. I have sensitive skin, though I've heard other people say this burned their skin too. It smells bad too. Don't get this under any circumstances.
It has a really weird texture
Grace :) from Woodbridge Ca
I really wanted to like this foundation and honestly when applied with a sponge it's not bad but there are so many tiny pieces of stuff inside of it that makes it impossible to put straight onto your face. I do not recommend it to anyone because of this. I don't know if it's just because of the formula that this happens but I got it almost as soon as I saw it in stores so it was a new tube but it's just so grainy and kind of gross to use.
Possibly the worst foundation of all time
ABA from USA
This has the grease of sunscreen and 0 coverage. A bit glowy when I first put it on, insanely greasy within 3 hours. Way better off with no makeup. Not sure who this is for, people who have perfect looking skin but want more grease and zero SPF? 🤷♀️
Great Light coverage foundation
Amy from Oklahoma
This is a great light coverage foundation, I don't have any scarring or problem areas to cover, so it is nice when I don't want to look too made up. I use a little concealer under my eyes with it and it is good to go. I do have some discoloration, it does not cover this but I am ok with that.
I like the blend of this
Alyssa from South Carolina
I think the finish is great. The coverage it's medium and it doesn't make my makeup look cakey.
tris from texas
starts to feel weird on skin after an hour and felt sticky. the smell was gross when applying. kinda like fritos in my opinion
Nope, I'll pass.
Jill from New Kensington, PA
I have really dry skin, but I expected this to be more hydrating but it did what a lot of foundations did: clung to my dry patches. wouldn't recommend. I gave it so many chances, used different powders. don't buy if you have dry skin
shel from OH
no, just no
Sheet light weight moisturizer that needs to be shaken!
Alicia from Des Moines Iowa
Disclaimer- I do work for Ulta and did not receive any compensation for this review.
This - has saved my skin under my mask!This allows my skin to breathe, have light coverage and allow my skin to look like skin- without clogging my pores.
***this product must be shaken *** because it does settle. The cover girl fresh skin Milk foundation does not chemicals in it to keep the pigment suspended so it does need to be manually mixed. This does have a shorter shelf life because it has natural suspensions to keep it held together.
This is a great skin tint for first time makeup wearers, those who want a vegan, clean AFFORDABLE makeup or someone who needs something to slap on before a zoom call.
In my opinion it's more of a skin tint - almost like a hybrid of a primer and a foundation. Very light natural coverage.
This clean skin milk foundation has changed my perception of cover girl - and caused me to purchase other products within this line. The eyeshadow primer is awesome too !
I have access to a lot of makeup products and consistently choose this product over items that are 3 times this cost.
If you are on the fence about this it typically goes on sale or use a coupon on it
I will buy again!!! It is really nice for a no make up look
kris from Lincoln NE
I like how light the foundation feels when I wear it. This is the perfect item for me to wear on days that I want easy makeup that looks like I have no makeup on.
Balls up on skin
Grace from Pennsylvania
The color is perfect for my skin, but it balls up when I apply it. I've never had this issue with any of my foundations, so I know it's the foundation and not my skin.
Layla from JACKSONVILLE
please don't buy it's a waste of money and it just is bad
Hutch from Ky
Light /Medium coverage but weird chucks of stuff in it. Looked expired when I got it.
i wouldn't buy this foundation again EVER.

IT BURNT MY SKIN
Gritty and sticky!
Disappointed fan from ON, Canada
Hey friends! I am not one to write reviews but I HAD to for this product! The formula is gritty when I rib it between my fingers and on my face, it doesn't apply well, it smells very strong, it is unpleasant to wash off, and it leaves your face feeling sticky! Definitely would steer clear of this formula!
yes but with a few cons
Lou from MO
I like this product, it really is an easy application, lightweight. Not many cheap foundations can be applied to my face that doesn't make my acne look worse and/or more prominent, this doesn't do that. It works as a great tone evening product and makes my face look very dewy. It does not last very long and tends to come off with the slightest touch if you don't set it. Anyone you see describing this product as flakey has probably left this product open for 5 mins too long or the product was expired. As it doesn't contain animal lipids to reduce drying or runniness, it will naturally do those things. It is also super buildable so you can apply many layers, but this is not a foundation for coverage. I use it to even out my skin before using my full coverage concealer. Great base for putting blush and bronzer though. As many cons as this has, I like it and will continue to buy it because it doesn't dry me out or point to my blemishes. For me, it does a good job for the price and quality ingredients.
keep ur money
Tina from WA
It has weird chucks in it that feels like your putting dead skin on your and it smells weirdly like pumpkin (not in a good way). save you're money hunny!
Kristina from California
This is good with a brush and leaves my face looking dewy and hydrating
Gg from Nc
These shouldn't have been sold bcuz there are huge chunks like salt through it and had to throw it out
Great sheer foundation
DD from North Carolina
This foundation is light coverage and the formula is more on the Dewey side I have very dry skin and it worked great for me left a Dewey finish. Wore it all day and it was still looking very good at the end of the day.
Foundation is sheer so blends in very nice with the skin true to color . I Purchased the shade tan
Only works with a Puff
PinksNHues from Green Bay
With a sponge or brush, it's awful. It actually pills on my skin and it's the strangest, least pleasant experience. That said, I had bought some extra puffs for a cushion foundation and I gave that a shot with this foundation and it FINALLY works. I'm giving three stars because a product so finicky should be sold with a tool that makes it work. The product is very thin and coverage is very light, definitely only for someone who wants a no makeup-makeup look, because you will still see any discoloration and texture.
BEAUTIFUL, BUT BROKE ME OUT
Emily from USA
When first applied, the finish is stunning. However, it breaks apart on my nose REALLY bad throughout the day (even when set with powder) and if I use it more than twice a week it breaks me out. I wanted to like it so bad, since it was lighter coverage and had all these great ingredients in it, but oh well. At least it was cheap.
jay from wichita ks
when it put it on the back of my hand, about to put in on my face, i saw it had little textures in it and i couldn't figure out what they were. overall would not recommend
I Really Wanted To Like This...
JNSNashville from Nashville, TN
I bought the 550 Light/Medium CoverGirl Clean Fresh Skin Milk as an everyday cover to use during quarantine, when I wanted very light but nourishing makeup. From Day 1 it just smelled funny - not good. It was so surprising to me that it would have a bad smell!
My Go-to Foundation
Sam from USA
I have pale, neutral skin and I was worried that this foundation would pull too cool or warm but 510 (Porcelain) is perfect for me! I also have dry skin and this product doesn't bring attention to it and it blends out beautifully. It's very lightweight, natural, and easy to work with. I have blended it in using a brush, sponge, and fingers, and it always looks great. The only thing I've noticed is that it can pill with certain primers. Highly recommend!
