I have been using Covergirl ever since I started wearing makeup. This is literally the only makeup that does not make my face break out or get too dry. I am also very pale so it is hard to find something that covers up red spots or anything else that does not turn orange. I use the pressed powder because it is less messy, but the only negative thing I can say about it is that I don't like the smell. It kind of has a medicine smell to it. The liquid base that I use does not have the smell, but the powder does. I also really like that Cover Girl is not as expensive as some brands, but seems to stil keep good quality makeup and great new products coming out. They have a wide range of shades, which I really like. I have used all kind of different things they make, but I think this pressed powder works best for me and you can't beat the price. I also noticed that it does not dry my skin out like some other things I have used in the past. One thing that I did find is that if I don't wear the liquid base, the powder does not stay on long.
