Hello IMBB Ladies!
I currently own 3 CoverGirl Foundations of different types. I must be a fan of their brand? Hihihi.I already made a review on CoverGirlClean Whipped Crème Foundation which is my favorite among the 3. So now, I’ll share with you my say on this liquid foundation I have which is the CoverGirl Advance Radiance Age Defying Makeup + Sunscreen SPF 10.
A breakthrough in radiance for skin that looks years younger!
-Non- comedogenic, dermatologically tested, oil-free, suitable for sensitive skin.
Octinoxate 2%…….. Sunscreen
My Take on CoverGirl Advance Radiance Age Defying Makeup:
One brand I trust for keeping my skin moisturized is Olay. So a foundation which has Olay ingredients in is just so impossible for me to ignore. My skin is drier than ever and even my reliable MAC SFF is not doing a great job on my dry patches anymore. Though CoverGirl Whipped Crème Foundation is working great on my skin, I wonder how far moisturizing is this CoverGirl Advance Radiance Age Defying Makeup which is infused with Olay goodness.
CoverGirlAdvance Radiance Age Defying Makeup comes in a clear plastic pump bottle which has 30ml of product in it. The bottle looks like it has lots of product inside but a closer look at the bottom shows that there’s a hollow space inside taking up 25% of the bottle. I love pump bottles like this as it is hygienic and economical too. 1 full pump is all I need to cover my face and neck. It is creamier compared to MAC SFF but is very easy to even out on skin. It does have this floral scent to it which smells goodbut others may find it overpowering.
I always apply CoverGirl Advance Radiance Age Defying Makeup on my face with my Quo sponge, shaped like that of Beauty Blender and it blends nicely. It gives light coverage on my face which I like for my every day makeup. It was able to counter redness around my nose and dark spots decently. I would like to consider this product as a tinted moisturizer because I really feel the moisture in it. It gives a nice satiny finish on skin and the radiance is really there as promised. It feels lightweight too upon application.
Unlike the whipped crème foundation of CoverGirl, this liquid foundation badly needs a finishing powder or setting powder to last longer. Using this foundation alone makes me produce oil in 2 hours. And it’s more than usual. When I use a sheer face powder on top, it takes a little longer, 4 hours before I oil up a bit on my T-zone. I believe this is good for dry skin. For those who has oily skin, I they may skip this. I don’t think I’ll use this during the summer when I am oilier. One more thing, at the end of the day, like 6 to 8 hours of wear, I can see that the foundation is not holding up nicely on my skin anymore. It feels heavier on skin as time goes by and it bothers me. I honestly do not like that feeling. Good thing I always feel that towards the end of the day when I am already home.
What I Like About Cover Girl Advance Radiance Age Defying Makeup:
-Feels light on skin upon application and few hours after
-Gives a radiant glow on skin
-Looks very natural on skin but it make skin looks healthy
-Light coverage which is buildable to medium
-Very good for dry skin
-Does not emphasize my dry patches
-Does not settle on fine lines
-It has SPF
-Affordable for $12
What I Don’t Like About Cover Girl Advance Radiance Age Defying Makeup:
-Is not doing well in oil control
-Needs a setting powder to last longer on skin
-Feels heavy towards the end of the day.
This I believe is a good foundation for dry and maturing skin and for everyday use because of its light coverage and the radiance it imparts on skin. Ladies with oily skin, I feel that this won’t help with oil control.
