Product Info from Cover Girl

Having a natural, beautiful look means a lot to you.
That's the look of Clean Makeup.

lets your skin breathe, goes on easily, and blends perfectly, 
so the world doesn't see makeup, just the look of great skin.

Retail Price: $6 in the US, PHP 110.00 bought at

Also Available in Oil Control and Sensitive Skin Formula

I've used this several times last December during parties and other occasions.  I can't say it's really bad, its just so so.  It was cheap, so I got what it's worth.

What I like about it...
* inexpensive
* light coverage
* mild scent
* no irritation or allergies
* does not make my face look cakey

What I don't like...
* it did not dry fast, I had to wait about a minute
* even though it's water based, it doesn't blend well
* I chose the wrong shade (since I bought it online). It's lighter - looks like a liquid concealer, and this has more pinkish undertone to it. Since it's so light, almost non-existent, I still can make it work.
* Although it's in a glass bottle, I hate the top cap. The hole is just too big.
It spilled twice when I was using it. Squeeze type tubes or pumps are better.

My Rating: 2 / 5

If you chose a lighter shade of foundation, you can make it work by applying a darker shade of powder closest to your skin tone.  

Another way to make it work, is to mix your liquid foundation with another liquid foundation that has a darker shade. Add the second foundation in little amounts until you get the shade you want. 

I will probably just finish this bottle so that it won't go to waste. I definitely won't recommend this to anyone. However, for younger ladies or teens, this might work since it has a very light coverage.  I have read from other reviews that they had breakouts when they tried this product, so be careful.

Have a nice day everyone!

  1. I dunno how many times I've watched this foundation on eBay but could never bring myself to buy it. Glad I didn't. Thanks for the review. :)chogi

  2. @Pammy, my pleasure. It also took me a while before I decided to buy this product. I had a gutt feeling it wasn't worth it. I hated myself for buying

  3. I have this in oil control and its actually not that bad.. But its not so good either. I agree with you when it comes to the drying part.. It takes time for it to dry. I use this with my foundation brush, but since it dries really slow, i think a stippling brush will work better on applying this foundie. This routine I have yet to try :)

  4. @Janica, I really wanted to buy the one in oil control, but the shades available were lighter. I read a review from another blog before, about the oil control, it's actually not bad. Maybe the quality varies for different Formulation. However, it's a lesson learned. Never buy foundation online unless it's a repurchase...hehehe

  5. WOW!!! such a cheap ebay find? ba siya? parang katakot why its so cheap... anyway, pls suggest your ebay makeup sellers. :D

  6. @kumi, I bought a lot of products from this seller.

    hindi naman katakot, her cosmetic prices are really very cheap compared to other sellers. The products I bought from her were really authentic and sealed! She's a power seller as well. Her husband is a foreigner so maybe most of her items are hand carried and not shipped - I think that's the reason why it's cheap, since she doesn't have shipment costs.
