CoverGirl + Olay Simply Ageless 3-in-1 Liquid Foundation Review






To tell you that CoverGirl + Olay collaboration is new to me will be a lie because I knew about ALL CoverGirl products like the back of my hand for more than a decade now!  I did mentioned in the past that one drugstore brand I really got acquainted with even years before I turned into a blogger was CoverGirl.  Blame my favorite 90s model Niki Taylor for that!  (Niki Taylor is a nineties model together with sister Krissy Taylor are both Cover Girl models, Krissy by the way died in rare heart condition #DamiKongAlam)

But fast forward to today, whenever I see new items from the said brand brought me back to so many good makeup memories!  I remembered saving every single centavo of my "summer work money" and allowances to purchase my favorite Cover Girl item!

Back to reality, as soon as I got the new Cover Girl + Olay Simply Ageless 3-in-1 Liquid Foundation, I gave it a test right away and will share my thoughts on this product which I think is a nice daily liquid foundation especially for those who are in their late 20s and above!

CoverGirl + Olay Simply Ageless 3-in-1 Liquid Foundation Says ---
"A breakthrough liquid foundation that works wonders on your skin with just a few pumps. As skin care, it is enhanced with the tried and tested formula of Olay. This 3-in-1 liquid foundation succeeds by reducing the early onsets of skin aging delivering that much-needed moisture to keep your skin hydrated at all times. It contains Vitamin E and Glycerin which shields your skin against free radicals while preventing fine lines and wrinkles, as well as Green Tea extracts that builds collagen, restoring that luxurious radiance you truly deserve. As make up, The Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless 3-in-1 Liquid Foundation is a fusion of primer, concealer and foundation. You can go from sheer to full skin coverage with its buildable formula. The built-in SPF also prevents sun damage, improving overall skin tone for an even looking skin."



AMW says --- 

Pros

  • Packaging.
  • Hydrating, non-drying.
  • Gives decent amount of coverage.  Light to medium.
  • Build-able coverage.
  • Super lightweight feel.
  • Gives natural effect, like I'm not wearing any foundation at all.
  • Goes on smoothly, blends easily.
  • Brightens up the face.


Cons

  • Coverage may not be enough for those looking for thick and heavy-coverage liquid foundation.
  • Will grease-up midday so definitely won't work for users with oily skin.
  • For those with extremely dry and parched skin, the "Olay" or hydration from this product is not enough.
  • Has a strong floral scent which may bother other users.

Overall
A lightweight liquid foundation with added moisturizer for daily use.  The CoverGirl + Olay Simply Ageless 3-in-1 Liquid Foundation is definitely my to-go-to daily liquid foundation (if I'm aiming to use one!)

Tips

  • Set with a translucent oil-control powder to prevent greasy-looking makeup.
  • Best used by those with normal and dry skin.
  • Gives a good amount of coverage but concealer is needed if you want extra coverage.
  • 1-2 pumps are enough for the whole face for light coverage, add another pump or 2 for medium to medium full coverage.
  • Use a separate moisturizer if you have extremely dry skin as the skin will tend to "drink up" the moisture from the foundation and will leave dry patches.
  • Best used with a sponge for better blending, the sponge also helps absorb extra "moisture" to prevent the greasy look.

Will I repurchase?
Yes.

To whom do I recommend this to?
Normal and dry skin users.

Where to purchase and how much?
Covergirl+ Olay 3-in-1 Liquid Foundation is available at leading department stores nationwide for Php925.00. Covergirl is exclusively distributed by Rustan Marketing Corporation.

The packaging is nothing spectacular, it is a plastic pump-packaging similar as other Cover Girl liquid foundation packaging.  I like that I can easily see the shade.  You can also see the "Twirl of Olay" in white!

Buff Beige
A warm light beige shade that works for my skin!

As for application, I like to spread a good amount all over face adding more on areas that needed coverage.  Using a sponge, I blend everything in short, quick dabbing strokes.

Before and After
The effect is extremely natural, it gives a good amount of coverage which can cover redness around my face and lighten up dark undereye circles.

Overall, this is hailed a good daily liquid foundation for me since it gives natural and even coverage!  The feel is extremely good because it's lightweight and I don't feel like I'm wearing any makeup at all!

How do you like the effect of CoverGirl + Olay Simply Ageless Liquid Foundation on me?

Stay happy!
