So here's my latest goody that came in the mail. It's COVERGIRL & Olay Tone Rehab 2-in-1 Foundation and COVERGIRL & Olay Pressed Powder. I also received a packet full of $2 off coupons. If you are one of my local friends and would like one (or a few), just let me know. I am happy to share!
I was so excited because I love using foundation and pressed powder with my makeup routine, but it's been a really long time since I've tried anything new. Once you find something that matches your skin tone, it can be scary trying to switch brands. I have fair skin, but wouldn't consider myself to be pasty. The full-size sample of foundation that I received is #125 buff beige. The pressed powder is #320 fair/light. They were both a PERFECT match for my skin, so much so, that I could barely tell that I had anything on. That's the whole goal right?
Here's an up close picture of my skin before applying anything (except my daily lotion which is also something I got for free for being a BzzAgent).
Yikes! I do not like the me with no makeup!
You probably really don't need to use as much as I did here, but this is how I normally apply my foundation, so I just stuck with the normal routine. I dot all of these areas and then gently rub it in, beginning with my forehead and moving down to the top of my neck.
It's nice and fluffy, so it goes on really smooth and evens out well.
Here I am with only the foundation and pressed powder. No other makeup just yet.
Wow! What a major difference this made in my skin. It feels so much softer and check out how much it hides a lot of my sun spots and wrinkles. I'm impressed!
And here I am with a little bit of makeup. I've added eyeliner, eyeshadow, mascara, light blush and light lipstick.
Also had to add one final picture to show you that I do have hair; it's just pulled back!
Finished product...a happier me! I do believe I have found a new favorite brand of foundation and pressed powder! Here are the side by side comparisons. The first is just lotion. The second is only the foundation and powder. And the third is the finished product, with makeup and all!
Be blessed my friends!
