Rated 1 out of 5 by EKoz Bad Changes!
I've used CG for 15 years. I am now changing brands. The new compact design is AWFUL. The pin comes out of the back all the time, it breaks, has to be replaced often, and won't stay open on it's own while applying make up. A fail in ALL WAYS.
Rated 1 out of 5 by AndieDodge NEW FORMULA IS AWFUL!
The old frag. free powder was great, & the old compact was far more appealing than the new ugly, bulky design. The new formula turns orange/blotchy by the end of the day. CG should have never messed with the Clean line. Horrible marketing decision.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Erin92 Perfect!
I don't know why so many people don't like this; it matches my skin perfectly, doesn't break me out, and has a nice, light coverage. I personally have no trouble with the compact. As long as Cover Girl keeps making this I'm a customer for life
Rated 2 out of 5 by KellyB Wouldn't recommend
I think that this pressed powder doesn't work as well as I would want it. It was too weak for me, it didn't do a great job of covering acne/uneven skintone.
Rated 4 out of 5 by AwesomePerson First time trying out this product
I just applied this product to my face. So far, it's just like any other face powder but the feeling is light-weight. I've read the comments below. I just have to say that not every CoverGirl product is suitable for every one.
Rated 2 out of 5 by C0caine Horrible compact.
The lid is impossible to open I've broken every compact I've bought. The product it's self isn't very good. I'm very VERY pale and it makes my skin a tad yellow. Baby powder is cheaper than this, and it makes a much better powder for over foundation
Rated 2 out of 5 by anonymous3 ok...
Covergirl powder has never failed me in the past, but this one is terrible! The packaging makes the compact impossible to open, & my nose is shiny within an hour of applying it. though, I use 225 buff beige, which matches my fair, peachy skin well.
Rated 2 out of 5 by WarEagle Why change a good thing?
I see posts going back almost a year about how bad the packaging is, so why hasn't it been changed yet??? You are about to lose a faithful customer of over 20 years...
Rated 2 out of 5 by Ckp2145 Sad
I love this product, well used to at least. This is all I have ever used but now it is more of a hassle. The compact is horrible to open and then breaks within only a couple uses. I hate to have to try something else but it is costing to much to use!
Rated 1 out of 5 by lucybean made my skin even worse
I needed a product that would cover up redness, blend well, last a long time, and be okay for my sensitive skin. The powder looked cakey, uneven, and it made my dry skin look scaly. After using it, my skin was bright red with patches of white.
Rated 1 out of 5 by MMMoney Bring back the old style compact !
One bad thing: The “new” compact design is TERRIBLE – I can barely even get is open. I have no idea who thought this was a good idea, but is was clearly not. The ounces are also LESS in the new compact versus the old – very sneaky Cover Girl.
Rated 1 out of 5 by SUEC VERY disappointed
I too, am VERY disappointed in the "new" design. After fighting to get the "new" compact open, the lid broke off. Now I cant take it with me anywhere.Will be looking for a new pressed powder from another company until they bring back the old design.
Rated 3 out of 5 by llenallama I miss the old powder!
I loved the compactness and look of the old compact. These compacts are very difficult to open and chip easily when dropped. I wear tawny and the coverage is okay but I really wish they still had soft sable. That was the PERFECT color for me.
Rated 2 out of 5 by JustAmber BRING BACK THE OLD FRAG. FREE!!!
This powder's ingredients are identical to the oil control powder. There is nothing special about it, almost no coverage, oxidizes, and has terrible shades. I loved the old Clean fragrance free powder, it was far superior to this one!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Briti Buy It For Summer
I usually buy pressed powder for the summer time, because I hate the way the heat and sun makes my face feel, if I put liquid on, because it runs badly, because I sweat too much. I bought the sensitive skin kind, because my face dries up too easy.
Rated 2 out of 5 by TAMG Great Powder, terrible compact design
Since the design change I have purchased 3 compacts. Each has been hard to open and has cracked at the hinge. Always seems to happen 1/2 way through the life of the powder. I love this powder, new design is VERY disapointing. CG should fix this NOW!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Beki Shades don't match
I wear 245 in the liquid (clean sensitive), but in the powder, 245 is much too dark. Why don't the shades correspond?
Rated 4 out of 5 by MichaelaM Well...
It is the best matching powder,but doesn't last and doesn't cover acne.I WISH Covergirl would create a line of makeup for people with acne.The packaging is awful!
Rated 1 out of 5 by COVERLOVE I WANT MY COLOR BACK!!!!!!!
My color of pressed powder was discontinued 'NATURAL IVORY", very upset,but so were other shades,please bring back our covergirl shades,and old formula.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chantilly Super Powder! LOVE IT
I bought #510. I am glad I didn't listen to the reviews. First, It's FINE & EASY to open. Secondly, it covers great, &mattifies my combination skin all day. The color is great. BUY IT
Rated 2 out of 5 by Becky25 Great Powder, Terrible Compact
I've been using Cover Girl Clean Pressed Powder for years, and love it, however, the new compact is terrible. It's impossible to open, I fight with it every time. The next time I have to buy powder, I'm not buying Cover Girl.
Rated 4 out of 5 by TXalo good powder, terrible compact
The new compact is so hard to open that it hurts my fingers. Plus, the compact is bulkier and heavier than the old one. The old compact was good. Why did it change? As for the powder, it is very good at controlling oil, and it has good coverage.
Rated 3 out of 5 by princelvr1978 powder ok compact horrible
Love the powder really dislike new compact. Very hard to open. Have to fight with it and then it's still just not right. please go back to old compact
Rated 4 out of 5 by brianaa awsome but ....
the product is amazing but the packiging is horble it is hard to open and it gets all over the sides of the compact it is a real shame because the product inside is gold
Rated 3 out of 5 by ae85784 Okay, got the job done...
Ive used this product week, & i seem to like it. I normally use it to even my skin tone & or skin discoloration. But for acne and other blemishes, I would recommend a liquid instead. It doesnt irritate my skin, isnt shimmery & blends well.
Rated 2 out of 5 by cookimom99 messy
The powder is very messy, due to the new design of the compact. When you use a brush as I have for years, you end up with powder on the outside of the container. I did not have the problem with the other style compact
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cayla Really Impressed!
I'm used to using MAC products but I wanted to try this after seeing commercials and how great it looks on my friends. It blends really well. I like how the compact is a little hard to open, no mess in my bag!
Rated 3 out of 5 by turquoisegirl Compact and color have changed
The bad - new changes means the shade I use is darker than before, compact is harder to open. The good - powder is good quality, gives good coverage (can wear it without foundation - different from other drugstore brands), good amount in compact.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Margerydoll Nothing wrong with this, it has improved!
I never did like the covergirl pressed powder much, but this covers as well as a liquid, does not look chalky, and best of all, that tell-tale "covergirl" smell is not there. Ignore the bad reviews, try it for yourself.
Rated 5 out of 5 by naturelover222 The BEST Powder I've Ever Tried!
I've tried dozens of powders. This is by far the best! The compact is GORGEOUS and is extremely easy to open (it just flips open!). The mirror inside is fantastic. The powder itself is gentle and is the most natural looking powder ever! Thanks CG!!!
