Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless

I was so excited to be chosen for the BzzAgent COVERGIRL & Olay Simply Ageless campaign. You know how much I love new makeup!

For the past few weeks, I've been trying out the Simply Ageless Foundation in shade 210- Classic Ivory. I'm quite yellow, so I was afraid this might be too neutral for me, but it actually matches my skin perfectly. I tend to be a bit oily, so I was worried that a cream foundation would be too much for me- but I was wrong! I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it and found myself reaching for it day after day.

From the COVERGIRL website: This breakthrough formula with Olay Regenerist Serum and SPF 22 stays suspended over fine lines and wrinkles, unlike the leading anti-aging department store foundation that can gather in wrinkles and make skin look older. Clinically shown to provide significant improvement in skin condition in just four weeks.

However, I will tell you I don't use the sponge applicator that it comes with. Applying the foundation with the sponge gives a very heavy coverage- much too heavy for me. I instead use a damp foundation brush and love the light-to-medium coverage I get.

I totally meant to take a pic before I started using it, but yeah, that didn't happen. You can see where I've swirled my brush around- sorry about that, but hopefully you can get the idea of what the product looks like.

Up until earlier this year, I was using a mineral foundation, but I was noticing that it was settling into the fine lines around my mouth and eyes and making me look older than my 36 years. I am so glad I found this product- I have officially switched!

Disclosure: I received this product for word-of-mouth marketing purposes from BzzAgent.

I wish somebody would give me free products to try.

I don't know that I have yellow undertones but I definitely have the classic T-zone oiliness. This sounds like it might work to help combat that.

I miss doing my hair and makeup everyday but then again, there's no sense in doing it just to sit at home and do nothing.
