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?

ABBY from Cleveland
When I was trying to find a new foundation I really liked the texture of this and how it blended. It does smell a little weird and that deters me from using it occasionally. For me, it is a little to heavy. I prefer the matte bb cream for oily skin; it's given me the best results so far. But if I was looking for more coverage this is what I would use.
emily from boston
love this formula! I use fair/light which works for my cool/neutral tone... great dupe for the many $20+ skin tints on the market and a much better price!
Perfect shade match and dewy finish
Kim from North Carolina
This is my favorite foundation I have ever tried. I'm a light coverage girl with freckles, and I'm not trying to cover them up. I have combination skin. I don't find myself having to powder throughout the day, and it still looks beautiful after 8 hours. The color match is perfect for me. I don't notice a smell as others have reported, at least not the usual perfumed covergirl fragrance. I do find that it looks best when applied with a sponge. Brushes and fingers leave weird strokes in the finish. This will be my go-to from now on.
Probably not for sensitive skin
Alicia from Michigan
I wouldn't consider my skin to be very sensitive, but immediately after putting this product on, my face felt like it was burning. It is very lightweight and does not cover blemishes or imperfections. It looks separated prior to setting and then eventually separates further throughout the day - not transfer proof either! Any area you skip setting with powder feels sticky. It made my eyelids feel sticky and made my eyeliner run into the crease. I wanted to like this because of the dewy description, but I won't be purchasing again.
My new favorite foundation!
LindseyK89 from Brisbane, Australia
As soon as I heard that Covergirl obtained a Leaping Bunny certification, I was back on board and excited to try their new line. I LOVE this foundation. It's definitely a lighter coverage, but that's exactly what I want. It's so easy to apply and blend, and it wears well through the day. I have combination skin (dry, textured cheeks and an oily t-zone) and all I have to do is dust a little powder on my nose and forehead to get this to stay nicely. Now, I do get some of those little chunky bits that are mentioned in other reviews, and though it's a little annoying, I'm honestly fine just brushing them off. I know they shouldn't be there in the first place, but the skin-like finish of the foundation overall makes me forgive their presence. I definitely plan on purchasing it again.
Hopping on that clean beauty wagon

This is the very first time I ever tried clean Beauty Foundation. I absolutely love this formula it is so gentle on your skin and it has a really good coverage I use a really good face primer. It Blends in perfectly it is pretty sheer so you do have to use a couple of layers if you want more coverage other than that it could be used like a BB or CC cream it is phenomenal I love it! it is so gentle onmy skin I love the coconut milk and aloe smell if you don't really like it in might smell a little weird but other than that I love it I'm definitely going to be adding this to my makeup bag
norar1 from undisclosed
I use this on days that I don't want to wear very much makeup, and it has been great to use this summer. It's pretty light coverage, so don't expect it to cover up blemishes. This really looks like your skin, but better. I have found that it doesn't work well to put powder products over it, but cream bronzer and blush looks really great with it.
One Word: AMAZING
AshBaby from Boca, Raton Florida
I bought this foundation a few weeks ago and I am in love! I was a little skeptical about it being a dewy finish but it is amazing! It gives your skin such a nice glow and it is so light that I almost forgot I had make up on. I would HIGHLY recommend this product!
Great affordable foundation
danniecd39f from undisclosed
Super lightweight sheer to buildable foundation. Love the dewy finish. If you love the no make up make up look then youll love this. Lasts all day and it looks really natural.
paris from west virginia
nice coverage but clumped up and left little balls on my face
taylor from st pete, fl
even shaking it before use, its gritty and leaves white particles on the skin. idk if i got a bad batch but this is the worst. horrible coverage even for a sheer finish foundation.
Light, natural-looking coverage
amandag1 from undisclosed
This foundation is from Covergirls newer clean and vegan collection. The foundation is lightweight, hydrating and evens out skin tone nicely. It provides light coverage so if you need full coverage, this is not the foundation for you. If you like barely there foundation and dewy skin I would recommend giving this a try! My preferred way to apply is to use a damp blender to blend into skin- I love that it gives a pretty dewy effect to skin!
teagannofficial from undisclosed
I absolutely love this foundation! Like the name this foundation gives you milky dewy looking skin that helps fully cover blemishes in only a thin layer. I have oily skin and this foundation suprisingly doesn't break me out. It's really cheap and worth a try.
Really pretty (combo skin)
Maria Ghazaryan from undisclosed
I've been using this for a while and I've seen a lot of mixed reviews but I love this foundation.its the one I reach for the most and blurs my skin while still looking natural. It wears for a long time on me but again, lots of mixed reviews. I. Live in the dessert and I bought this mid July it stayed on and was always really pretty. I tried other products from this line, the blush fell off my face too easily and was metallic instead of dewy, the highlighter did NOTHING and the concealer is alright but this foundation really takes the cake. Highly recommend. Hope this helps.
If you're looking for a vegan blush I rlly like the nyx sweet cheeks tint it's really pretty goes on matte but it's sheer, stays on my face, pairs really well with this foundation.
I wanted to love this as much as the You Tubers do...
Lori B from Phoenix, AZ
I tried this product a couple of different ways. Blended with brush and sponge and even added a drop of moisturizer. It settled into fine lines and looked uneven and patchy on my skin...But, even worse...I wore it under my mask on a trip to the grocery store and when I took my mask off in the car, it was a soupy mess...it was awful...
Perhaps the mask test was unfair, but I use other foundations under a mask in the Phoenix heat and did not have this reaction...
Amazing for dry skin!
mandyl40 from undisclosed
Im so happy that Covergirl went cruelty-free because I finally got to try this stuff! I prefer a light coverage, but this stuff is also very buildable! Its hard to find a foundation that doesnt sink into my fine lines, but this one doesnt sink into them as much as others.
Love this foundation
jasmineg111 from undisclosed
I have been using covergirl for like 3 months and I really like this foundation!!!!!!
Perfect lightweight foundation!
taylorm302 from undisclosed
This foundation is very lightweight & does add a bit of moisture. I have combination/borderline oily skin and I still love this foundation. I do set it with loose powder but I find that it still looks very natural. It is light coverage but if you are looking for something that helps even things out without looking cakey, I definitely recommend this product.
Uneven texture and foul scent
Beena from Sacramento, CA
I was very excited to try this one since i don't need a lot of coverage.i loved the formula and that it was pocket friendly, but i was disappointed the very first time i tried it. It has a bumpy texture which sticks to the skin and look patchy and uneven and like little dots stuck to your face that even powder can't hide. Doesn't smell nice too.
READ THIS-do not recommend
Bad smell and olive looking shades from CO
First of all it smelled like bread, and the shades have an olive look to them. I mean you get what you paid for. I would recommend saving up for a better foundation.
portiapd9a7 from undisclosed
This is a beautiful light weight coverage foundation that I can use a brush or my hands to put on and takes no effort to blend into my skin. I have combo oily skin and my oils come through on my t-zone after only a few hours but it does so on any foundation and I have to blot.
Ally from PA
This is one of my favorite foundations! The ingredients in this are amazing and people should look for that in makeup. This one has no Talc which I love products that don't. I love the finish of this and the amount of coverage for being light weight. Definitely recommend:) also I have oily/combo skin
Dezzy from Northern Oregon
Guys, don't sleep on this! I feel like this is going to be such a good winter foundation for the following reasons:
-Survived TORRENTIAL Portland rain (me and my friends literally had to go to one of our friend's house to change and dry up) and all of my face makeup stayed put
-Survived a sweaty workout!!! Once again, as long as I did not touch anything, this stayed in place.
-Kept being hydrating all day and did not look oily at all!
Some of the cons:
-NOT mask proof; I quickly saw the separation on my face after a quick run to the store
Overall, I don't think this would be my summer foundation. It feels nice and hydrating when I wear it, though, and if I'm inside all day under a lot of AC this is SUCH a comfortable foundation! Honestly, I wouldn't sleep on it. I feel like I'm going to empty this during the winter!
grecohistorian from undisclosed
This is the perfect coverage for every day - especially in the summer time. It is creamy, blends well, and looks natural on the skin. I love the clean ingredients and the shade range. Great quality face product!
COVERGIRL CLEAN FOUNDATION
jackiegmtz from undisclosed
I wanted a lightweight foundation so I decided to purchase this. I really like that it is not heavy and the shade tan really matched me well. I do give it 4 stars because it has a scent. Overall, it blends well with other make up and gives a healthy glow.
