New product alert! I was provided two new makeup products from Bzz Agent** recently and I’ve been giving them the ol’ college try. I admit I was excited to try the products because first, they were a combination of CoverGirl and Olay and I’m a fan of both products. Also, they are designed to “de-puff” your eyes and give you a “facelift effect”. YES! I’m getting to that age where I could use a little de-puffing and facelift effect in my life.
I received the two products and the color is actually pretty good on me. That’s probably my favorite part. If I’m to be honest here, the de-puffing eye concealer does not go on well at all… it didn’t “rub in” and just sort of sits on your skin while you rub it around. It’s weird. I don’t like it. I also didn’t notice any changes in my puffiness… not that I’m PARTICULARLY puffy, but still. The Facelift Effect Firming Makeup goes on much nicer, but I found it to be quiet heavy or thick feeling. I know I’m not supposed to touch my face all day, but I find myself touching my face and it feels weird when I’m wearing this, not soft like normal.
I want to note that I don’t dislike the firming makeup, but I also don’t see any firming going on. I have lines around my eyes and mouth and there is zero change when I use the makeup. I even tried doing half of my face to kind of do a test and I could see no difference in the lines on my face.
Overall, I do not recommend the De-puffer, sorry CoverGirl/Olay, this one wasn’t a home run. On the other hand, the firming make-up is not bad for people who like wearing face make-up. It does give good coverage, but be prepared for it to be a heavier make up, versus a light one.
** Reminder for new visitors, I belong to BzzAgent. Bzz Agent sends me products that I get to try for free or for a greatly reduced price (in the case of this make up, it was free!) Then I tell you about the products and what I think. Honestly, most of the time I like the products, but every once in a while I get one like this that just doesn't do it for me. but, i want to make sure that everyone knows I was given these products at no cost to me.
