My experience with the product:

This foundation was gifted to me by my cousin who lives in the U.S. This particular foundation however is not available in India. CoverGirl Clean Liquid Makeup Foundation is available in three variants: Oil Control, Sensitive Skin and Normal Skin. Each variant has a wide range shades to choose from. I own the Sensitive Skin variant in the shade 260 Classic Tan which is a bit dark for my actual skin tone. The beige shade would suit me better. So I do not use this foundation on a regular basis.

The foundation is packaged in a glass bottle having a screw cap. I dislike the packaging as taking out the product from the glass bottle is a pain!

The foundation is not very runny in consistency. It has a mousse type of texture. It takes around two minutes to dry up once it is applied on the face. This foundation gives medium coverage which is decent enough. The finish is somewhat dewy. Unfortunately my face turns oily within two hours on application of this foundation (I have very oily skin). If I use a compact over this foundation then my skin remains oil free for around 3 to 4 hours at the most. A compact is a must in order to control shine.

The best thing about this foundation is that it lasts all day long and does not oxidize. It also did not cause any breakouts. I like the way it evens out my skin tone. This foundation is more suitable for use during winter when my skin tends to get dry and this foundation will moisturize it well. This is a big no if you are oily skinned. The oil control variant will work better for those of you having oily skin. If you have sensitive skin which is not on the oilier side then this sensitive variant will work well.

In conclusion, I would say it is an okay product. I would have used this on a regular basis if the shade was a good match for my skin tone.

Pros:

1. Evens out skin tone
2. Fragrance free
3. Hypoallergenic
4. Lasts all day
5. Does not oxidize

Cons:

1. Packaging is bulky. A pump dispenser would be really helpful.
2. Does not control oil
3. Contains parabens
4. Not yet available in India.

Rating: I would rate this product 3/5.
