very good but too greasy on my acne prone skin
i bought it along with the powder too, the thing is when I was at work I noticed that my skin felt oily to the point where i felt like i have to wash my face twice.. Overall it is a pretty good product but I would advise for very dry skin and not acne prone skin or combo skin

I just bought this not too long ago and I must say it has good coverage. If you are looking for full coverage this isn't for you. It melts in to your skin an it does feel and look like you don't have anything on...but... and there is a but... I use this when I go to work and iam constantly moving so this tends to give you shine and a little oiliness..which I don't like at all but needless to say i haven't broke out from this which it shouldn't. I have combo/dry skin. Oily in T zone and dry in others. I am acne prone too. Throughout the day I noticed a little heaviness and i just wanted to wash it off!!!!!! Overall it is good, but where a powder over it.. I use that new superbalanced mineral powder which covers pretty good.. I usually use MAC MSF and MAC tint as well. It wears pretty good but like I stated before it can get oily and shiny where you need to wash you face. Also that depends on your skin type too. I think that it is a little too pricey though.

very hard to find shade
I bought this awhile back and I still use the cover girl foundation but, thinking that I can use the classic ivory for this was way off!! I was too light, made me look too pale but it is too hard to find my shade seeing that you have cool neutral,warm. The one that I have is neutral classic ivory. I think I should of taken the warm side. But overall i see the coverage is ok but make sure you get the correct shade!!

not for acne prone skin
Hi, Well i used this on my face before but it made me break out. So instead, I use it around my eyes and my lids every night. Seems to work better. Just make sure you are not going too close to your eyes you should be ok. Overall, This is too strong for acne prone skin.

I bought this for the winter, I like it but the thing is if you put too much it can get too powdery and your pores show. If you use this please note --don't use powder over it. I think i a, just going to use it in the summer. The sponge that it came with don't use it.. Apply with foundation brush. I wont be using it that much only when its warmer where i won't use another powder over it.. I went back to using my CG smoothers with my trublend powder The coverage is ok but like I stated earlier don't use a powder over it becasue its cream to powder. I don't know how the other brands are but I tried it and this is all you need is this compact and concealer. I think its too expensive though...

its ok but not for acne prone skin!!
I had this when I went out of town thought it would be an easy fix for me but, unfortunately not good acne prone skin from my experience. it looked going on but after a couple days, i broke out on my chin. I don't know if that was because of the powder and this foundation--I really don't know but needless to say, it is good coverage but beware sensitive and acne prone skin!!

I tend to go back and forth with this product, but for some reason i like this pressed powder. I use a kabuki brush instead of the applicator given because i can make it look more natural when needed. It does cover blemishes however, use a concealer which i use that fresh complexion and the truconceal. The truconceal works ok but the other concealer does a better job. Currently, I am using LORAC protectint tinted moisturizer and yes this works ok but iam thinking of going back to the cg smoothers tinted moisturizer. For some reason I go back to the trublend...

just enough coverage for people who don't like full coverage
I tried this before and at first i didn't like it. So I came back to it later and the one thing that I want to say is that it is very similar to the Almay smart shade but I think this is better. The only advice i want to give you is you don't need a lot and use a primer for a more smooth flawless application. I use smashbox primer
