  • CoverGirl Simply Powder Foundation

    I have combination/oily skin (mostly oily with normal cheeks). Liquid foundation never really worked for me. I tried Covergirl Clean Oil Control, which didn't mattify and didn't last long at all, and Maybelline Pure Foundation, which was better than the other liquid foundation but still didn't quite do it for me. I've used L'Oreal Infalliable Never Fail Powder and liked it, but it's $12 and I'm a 13 year old girl without much money. This powder was only $7 when I got it, so I thought I'd give it a go. I really love it! It has a good amount of coverage, medium I guess (enough to cover up my acne and acne scars), but it's very buildable. It never feels heavy, though, and looks really natural. My favorite foundation I've used so far!

    CoverGirl Clean Liquid Makeup, Oil Control

    Decent, but didn't mattify at all

    I have combination/oily skin (most of my skin is oily, but my cheeks are normal). Usually it's just my nose that is a problem. This foundation gave me pretty good coverage for my acne and acne scars along with my redness/possible eczema. It didn't last my whole 8-hour school day though. My forehead, nose, and chin were oily. With the previous foundation I used to use, Maybelline Pure Makeup Liquid Foundation, it didn't give me as much coverage, but it lasted longer and only my nose was remotely oily at the end of the day. I just don't think liquid foundation is right for anyone with oily skin. I've since used L'Oreal Infallible Never Fail Powder foundation, which works great for me but is slightly more expensive (about $12 where I buy it). I recently switched to Covergirl Simply Power. It gives the same amount of coverage as this foundation, but lasts longer and actually mattifies. I suggest trying Simply Power foundation first instead of Clean Oil Control foundation.
