If there is one product that CoverGirl always nails, it’s foundations. I have yet to try a foundation from the drugstore brand that I haven’t liked. Sure, some have been better than others, but for the most part, they are always bang on.
The beauty brand has recently introduced two new products to their face category that don’t disappoint. As part of their CoverGirl + Olay line, their new foundation and concealer fights fine lines and under-eye dark circles.
Housed in a jar, the CoverGirl + Olay FaceLift Effect Firming Makeup combines the hydrating effects of a night cream with luxurious flawless coverage. Think it’s too good to be true? Not a chance. The Olay FaceFirm technology provides all-day hydration and skin renewal that plumps and lifts to improve skin’s natural firmness in just two weeks of continued use. As for coverage, skin brighteners offer a gorgeous glow for a semi-luminous finish that covers fine lines and wrinkles, moving with skin so it doesn’t look cakey (the worst!).
To round off your foundation routine, the CoverGirl + Olay The De-Puffer Eye Concealer combines expert shading technology with Olay rejuvenating serum to reduce the look of fatigue around the eyes for a more youthful appearance. The concealer shading is warmer and brighter to counteract dark circles, and the unique cooling metal-tip applicator (love this!) and Olay rejuvenating serum, infused with cucumber extract, soothes puffiness under the eyes.
So basically both these products pack the power of hydrating moisturizers with the coverage of a foundation. A match made in heaven. But, do they work?
I’ve always assumed that the CoverGirl + Olay line is targeted to an older generation, so I pretty much told my mom she could have these products once I tried them out. Since she’s into her 60’s I figured she would benefit more from what these products have to offer than I would. But then I tried them. Okay, granted I don’t need a facelift or anything, and I don’t have under-eye circles, but wow, these two leave you with a really nice finish. And, best of all, this stuff lasts all day. My makeup looked as flawless as it did when I applied it in the morning all the way to when I took it off. As much as I love CoverGirl foundations, there have been some in particular (ahem, TruBlend) that just have no staying power, which is a big no-no for me. Sure, I have nice skin, but I like my makeup to stay all day; I don’t carry around my foundation or a compact for touch ups throughout the day, so I like things to not budge.
As for the concealer, I really loved the metal-tip applicator because it’s nice and refreshing to apply, especially first thing in the morning. I wouldn’t do heavy-duty concealing with this, but I think it’s a pretty innovative product and I do recommend it.
Once again, CoverGirl hit it out of the ballpark with these two.
