Reviews for Advanced Radiance Liquid Foundation by COVERGIRL
Rating: Jan 31, 2014 6:27pm
Creamy and smooth
In a nutshell: This is a lovely, creamy foundation and works well on an everyday basis. Good consistency, creamy but not too thickening. It feels great on the skin, does not look too thick or cakey. It provides SPF and gives a radiant finish. Very blend-able and does not settle into the fine lines and creases of the skin. It leaves my skin looking smooth and natural and covers up my blemishes yet still looks like I'm wearing zero makeup.
1. Applies beautifully and is does not feel sticky nor tacky on the skin
2. Blends well and does not settle into any fine lines or creases
3. Fresh smell but does not linger on the skin for long
4. Good coverage, covers blemishes, hyperpigmentation and what not
5. Gives a lovely dewy and glowing radiant finish
6. Pump squirts out a good amount and keeps bacteria away from the product
1. Fairly pricy for a drugstore foundation ($20 AUD)
2. Since it gives a dewy finish this may not be suitable for people with oily skin
3. Majority of the colours in this range have a bit of a pinkish undertone

This is an average foundation for someone on a lower budget. A little bit of product goes a long way but I find you really have to work it into the skin so it absorbs properly.

Way too oily!
This is a super oily foundation, which makes it slip off those with oily faces, and unblendable on dry faces..
However the packaging is cute. I love how the base pushes up so you really do get every little bit of product out. Which makes it very worth the price of a drugstore foundation.

One of the better foundations form covergirl
First I want to say I have not been impressed by CG foundations from their clean liquid, powders and mnineral range. They were all a miss for me. I bought them and only used them because i didnt want to waste my money. So I bought this for my mother with her slightly aged skin and i use it on her when I do her makeup. First of all I like the packaging. Although it is plastic, the siver and foundation colour showing though the little window looks somewhat classy and definitely suited for the older ladies (it is not something I would go for but mum liked it alot). I was quite jealous it came with a pump and my clean was just a bottle. (I hate pour bottles they're too messy!)
I have tried it on my dry skin but i find that it doesnt blend too well. On my mum however it blends really well and she has oilier skin. I think it almost absorbs the oil whereas it looks streaky on dry skin. It is a nice sheer coverage foundation which can be applied a bit more heavier if needed. being buildable it does not cake or fold into fine lines or wrinkles.
Very decent foundation for mature skin. Also the colour is very blendable, my mother has purchased a shade way too light for her (3-4shades!) but it still can blen in without looking strange.

ok if you are looking for a cheaper foundation
this used to be my staple until i moved to clinique. I always thought i just had pimply skin, since changing foundations my skin is flawless, without a pimple in sight, so i can only put the pimples down to this foundation.
not a great selection of colors, and if you are pale, you will have a hard time with it. takes a bit to get good coverage, and i found in the heat, this melted straight off my face. looks good for a few hours, but really not worth it for the pimply skin.
ive actually found this ended up costing me more as i was using quite a bit to get decent coverage therefore going through the bottle faster than the more expensive brand i use.

i like this
good coverage. stays for at least 6-8 hours of the day. the thing is that i do have combination/oily skin and by the end of the day, if i dont have a compact/powder on hand i do find that the oil seeps through. Other than that, if you're looking for good coverage, definitely recommend.

Ugh. Below average.
This foundation is quite heavy on the face and the colours are not varied enough. It dried out my skin and didn't blend well.
This foundation also looked very blotching on my face, as if the foundation were several different colours. This is a horrible foundation.
