Covergirl is my go to cosmetic brand. They have a large variety of products and all are at a reasonable price. I've been using Covergirl for years. It's clean and light and doesn't make you feel like you are wearing a mask and it doesn't look like you're wearing a mask to others. You can find it everywhere and they are always coming out with new products, along with keeping the long time products. It is my favorite cosmetic brand.

Best product out in the market. Is pleased with every penny spent. Easy to use. Would recommend to friends and family. My grand daughter love this stuff. She is in college. She does her friends make-up. Other people are also calling her to do their make up and word get out that she is using Covergirl.

Makeup has granules in it. Not blended. Shook it up 100 times. Still granules in it. Just wanted you to know. Have always used Cover girl and never had a problem. Couldn't use this one. Had to throw it away.

Many factors come to mind whenever I, personally make purchases or experiment items related to face make-up. Quality and price go hand-in-hand but one cosmetic brand that consistently meets my unique standards each time, "Covergirl" cosmetics.. Every single item honestly could easily be mistaken for any high priced popular brand I purchased, honestly. Price & items are fair, color variations always in-store which makes me actually smile! Overall, Covergirl is one of my favorites & I recommend this brand often.

I have very sensitive skin and I find that Covergirl products work well for me. It’s reacts well with my skin texture and ph. Often I breakout because most brands are very heavy. However, Covergirl provides me with a lightweight options that are water-based and oil-free.

I have always used Covergirl. I will always buy Covergirl products. Oil of Olay is the best to use with Covergirl. I have been using Covergirl's products for over 30 years. I have tried other products and always came back to Covergirl.

I like Covergirl liquid foundation True Blend. It seems to be the right color for me and isn't cakey or too thick. I also use True Blend compact for even more coverage. I have sensitive skin so this product does not affect my skin. It's lightweight and I recommend it to anyone!

I use Covergirl products as well as a variety of other products. I especially love Covergirl's professional mascara and foundation makeup. I have sensitive skin and never have a problem. This company has been around for a very long. You can be sure of receiving great value at very affordable prices.

I’ve used Covergirl foundation and powder for years. I’ve tried others but go back to Covergirl. Has my skin tone and they have been around since I was a little girl. I would recommend it to everyone. With other products makes my face break out but never with Covergirl makeup.

I enjoy this company for make-up because they are affordable and keep products for years instead of up retiring things what women like. I can still find things I wore as a teenager and I’m 46 now. That’s nice.

I bought 2 crayon, all day lip liners. They were $10 each and well worth the money. I have bought much more expensive brands but, the Covergirl lip liners were great! About 8 colors to choose from! The liner stayed on and I just added a touch of gloss. I have a few compliments that day! I would highly recommend the Covergirl Lip Liners, 24 hour stay power!

Since Covergirl went cruelty-free, it is the only make-up I will ever buy again. I am very careful making purchases and they must be cruelty-free. Covergirl items are all great and reasonably priced!

I was using Covergirl full lash bloom. I got an infection in both my eyes that was so bad I had to go to the ER. I have not got the bill yet but I know it going to be expensive. It was so painful! I had to use drops and and my eyes filled with pus pockets for a week after that. I have done some research after on the ingredients. It has metal flakes inside and that is what build your lashes. Whoever thought putting metal that close to your eyes? Please read all of the ingredients and know what you are putting near your eyes.

I tried the New Covergirl Simply Ageless Instant Fix Concealer. I love the new sponge applicator, and I love the twist cap for the amount you need. I have been using Covergirl since I was a teenager. I’m now 50 and I am still using Covergirl. This Concealer is easy to use. It covers what I need covered. From redness to breakouts, it does its job. Nice size to keep in my purse for when I need a touch up. Thank you Covergirl for a great new Concealer.

I've been using Walmart makeup products for years with no issues at all. I recently used CoverGirl Vitalist Healthy Concealer when Maybelline didn't have my usual concealer color, and it was absolutely horrific. Within a day, the skin just to the left of my nose became red and inflamed, and very itchy. The next day, the right side of my nose started to become red and irritated. The next day, the skin around my eyebrows, above my lip, my forehead, and on my cheeks (where I apply concealer)...everything was rashy, burning, hot to the touch, and itchy as all get-out. Now it is day 4, I have switched back to my usual concealer and even deep-cleansed my applicator brush and sponges. The rash is still here but it doesn't burn as much. I've applied a Vaseline eczema/rash reliever cream and I'll be buying aloe and some kind of antihistamine today.
This is the worst affordable brand I've ever come across...although I do use their TruBlend foundation with no problem, the concealers seem to be very acidic and poorly manufactured. Not only did my face become rashy and itchy...it made me nauseous from the constant tingling/burning sensation on my cheeks and around my eyes. The skin has legitimately become rough and scaly, like a reptile skin purse. Definitely 1 star and 2 thumbs down.

I have been using this brand for 50 yrs. It is always the same. Covergirl never tried to “fix something that wasn’t broke”. They add new products but keep the old ones the same. It is hypoallergenic and never irritates my skin.

My mom had a coupon for full lash mascara by Covergirl. I tried it out (I always wear Maybelline makeup). I notice after I washed it off my eyes became itchy, extremely itchy. They were red and swollen as well. It lasted a few days before I decided to go to the dr. They gave me ** to put in my eyes for 7 days. It helped and went away after about a week. A week after I went out and used the same mascara (I didn't realize then it was the mascara). I had no problems till that night they itched. I said great. I washed it off immediately. Within minutes they became extremely itchy I went to bed to wake up and see the same thing as before very red and swollen itchy eyes. I'll never use this again. Glad to see I'm not the only one. Maybe there was something going on with Covergirl and we can all file a lawsuit! Wishful thinking. I would post a picture but I'm not sure how. I'd give this zero stars if I could.

I have been using Katy Kat Eye Mascara for a while and had no problems with it. I started using a different kind for a while and then went back to Katy Kat Eye. I ended up with a bad eye infection. I thought it was pink eye but it's not. My eye is very painful and swollen. It's very red and teary. Also it feels like something is in it and it doesn't want to stay open. I will never use this mascara again or any other Covergirl product.

Covergirl Trublend Matte Made Transfer Resistant Foundation - I’ve seen all these commercials about how it’s transfer resistant and it’s not... I tested it for myself and it got all over my shirt sleeve... I have acne and it does not cover at all. It is my shade and it’s just too pigmented orange. When I buy a product I am expecting it to fulfill what they are saying it will do. I’m sorry. I don’t really want to pay $12 for something that really isn’t what they say it is. I’m pretty disappointed.

I'll start by saying that I don't wear makeup daily, but for the last 6-9 months or so, every time I use either of the Cover Girl Lash Exact & Flourish Mascara and Perfect Point Plus Eye Liner, I've been having extremely itchy, watery, bloodshot eyes. Two weeks ago, I wore the mascara and eyeliner for the first time as I had been off work due to the government shutdown, so didn't have a need to wear makeup. The next day, I wake up with my eyes crusted over with yellow "goop", for lack of a better term. I assumed it was pink eye and went to the doctor and was given antibiotic eye drops.
I tossed all my products, which I by the way just opened for this use and completed the eye treatment as prescribed for 7 days. Just to be sure it was clear, I waited another week and had bought all new eye makeup (I only wear mascara and eyeliner). I tried it again yesterday and I'm right back at square one with the yellow "goop" in the eyes to the point where I can hardly open my eyes. Not sure what Cover Girl has done, but something in the formulas have changed and I can no longer use your products, which is sad because I truly like your products - even more so now that you've recently gone cruelty free.

I purchased an eyeliner product. It was faulty. After speaking to Covergirl and Coty, they agreed to send me a $20 gift certificate for reimbursement. They mailed it to me during a postal strike, I received the letter just days after the expiry on the gift certificate, also the letter had no date so I don't actually know when it was sent. I called both companies and both basically told me "too bad, they don't send out replacements". Unbelievable that they would not just issue a new one, they punished me for something out of my control. I am still out the money for the faulty eyeliner.

I loved the Covergirl Ink It eyeliner for the way it would glide on smoothly and its staying power and have bought it several times in the past 2-3 years. However, they may have recently changed their formula because now when I apply it, within 10-30 minutes my eyes are watering and irritated. It took me a couple of weeks to realize it was the eyeliner causing the problem. I have never experienced makeup allergies, and I'm in my 40s, so this was a huge shock. I will need to find a different brand to try. Right now, it's just a huge relief to have uncovered the cause of my severe eye pain/watering/redness.

Holy. Cow. I bought the buff beige foundation for about $8 at Dollar General, the pump kind. I bought it because I had left my good foundation at home and needed something quick. I usually use Milk Blurr Foundation which I highly recommend for everyone and anyone especially someone with sensitive skin. Anyway, wow. I have the worst rash all over my face and neck because of this useless foundation that wasn’t even the correct shade and made me look idiotic for nothing. I have blisters. I’m so itchy. If there wasn’t five feet of snow where I live I swear I’d have poison ivy.
This is extremely uncomfortable and slightly embarrassing. I’m sick of people asking me what’s wrong with my face and neck. Anyway, before I started using a more high-end foundation I used Covergirl often. I never had this issue. I’ve seen many complaints about them changing their formulas. Why would you do that, Covergirl? You got so many of us out here looking a fool and actually physically suffering. Do you test on animals? This terrifies me. Can’t imagine what they go through. I’m done with Covergirl completely. Truly disappointed.

You recently changed the formula in the Ink It eyeliner. I loved the old one, I had finally found an eyeliner that went on easily, stayed put and was reasonably priced. The last time I bought it, the packaging is different, there’s a message that it is a New improved formula (not exact words?) on packaging. It now makes my eyes burn and I will have to switch to another brand. What did you add to it??? I see many posts and reviews about this. Please switch back to the last formula!!!

Generally I've had great experiences with CoverGirl and Maybelline cosmetics, with the exception of a few lip glosses and mascaras. There are a few of both that haven't lived up to color quality or product quality such as a mascara drying out too soon, or a lip gloss or pencil that does not match its shade.

I've been using Covergirl for many year. I don't use a lot of makeup and even though there are newer things on the market this one suits me fine so I just keep buying it. I'm an older lady and I have some discoloration on my face and the Covergirl compact seems to cover that very well. The cost is minimal compared to other brands. I feel that at my age I am not a beauty queen and why should I spend more.

Katy Kat mascara clumps and does not go on smoothly. Her lipstick has decent colors and goes on ok and stays on, the reddish colors. Mascara needs improvement but the blue color of it is good.

I have been using CoverGirl eyeshadow and pencils for more years than I can remember. Someone in the company thought it was a good idea to change the sleek oval shape to an awkward rectangle. Then they changed the glue on the eyeshadow stick so that the foam end keeps coming off... even after using it for just a few times. I have to use Elmer's glue to put it back on. This happens with EVERY eyeshadow, not just one, so they are now using a cheaper type of glue that does not work.
Also the eyeshadow itself is now hard and difficult to get enough on the foam end to put on my eyelids. I have to apply several times to get my eyelids covered like I want and it never used to be like this. They have changed the glue and the eyeshadow itself and I will be looking for a new brand. The eyeliner pencils break constantly. I don't think they test their products before they put them on the shelves and they are taking whatever shortcuts they can to save money. They have lost a long-standing customer. I have had enough of their junk.
