Buzz Report: Cover Girl & Olay Unscientific Trial

So I occasionally receive products to try out and share my opinions on through BzzAgent.  I will admit this is the first product I have tried out where I actually documented my before and after results, but hey, I am all for trying something new.

The packaging insert with my two full size Cover Girl & Olay products told me:

“You can’t turn back the clock but you can reduce the signs of aging.  Just one pump of new Cover Girl & Olay Tone Rehab 2-in-1 Foundation helps instantly cover discolorations and age spots.  And finishing your look with a soft layer of Cover Girl & Olay Pressed Powder will help brighten your skin tone.”

On a typical ‘full make-up day’, I wear powder foundation, eye liner, mascara, blush and lip gloss.  I rarely wear liquid foundation, but thought I would at least give this a try.  I did have to select my tone without really knowing the color differences, so in the end, I think I selected a shade too light, but you can see for yourself in my pics.

Photo 3:  Full makeup – added blush, eye liner, mascara and gloss over the Cover Girl products.

I will say that when I saw my step-daughter later that day, she said I looked pretty….so there must have been some change from my everyday look.  I wore the products all day, out running errands.  I liked that I never felt shiny or greasy, which I think happens alot with liquid foundation.  I used 1 pump of foundation, and actually had more than I needed for my face.  I don’t think I needed ‘more’ make-up, but maybe a darker shade for a bit more coverage.  I have fair/light toned skin, but I don’t have great skin so I like to have ample coverage for my sun spots and other problem areas.

Overall, I plan to use the products again and keep trying them.  I didn’t breakout, which is another reason I rarely wear liquid foundation, so perhaps the Olay ingredients helped in that case.

So there you go, my version of the unscientific trial for BzzAgent and Cover Girl!
