We’re always asked to follow the splurge and save rule when it comes to makeup. And the foundation is one makeup product where you should always splurge because it is the most important part of any makeup look. I have been eyeing this foundation for a very long time and finally got it. I was always curious to try this blend of 2 great brands. Let’s see how it worked.

My Experience with Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless 3-in-1 Liquid Foundation:
Packaging: The Covergirl foundation comes in a small handy bottle with a purple cap. It has a colour coded packaging and the packaging shows the shade of the foundation which makes it very easy to select the right shade for the face and neck. The bottle is very travel-friendly and the cap closes with a click as well. It is priced very nicely since it is totally worth the price we pay. It has 12 shades to choose from which is more than enough and awesome as well. The quantity is really good since a very little quantity gets used at once. One pump is good enough to cover the entire face and neck.
Shade, coverage and feel on the skin: The shade I picked up is “Nude Beige” and I think this turned out to be 90% perfect for my skin-tone. It does look a little white but that is okay since it does not look very artificial. However, every woman is sure to find a perfect shade for herself as they have so many shades to choose from. The foundation is very creamy and glides very smoothly on the skin. It works even better with a brush because that gives a good coverage.
It does not feel heavy on the skin at all but might feel a little oily and heavy on very oily skin. The coverage of the foundation is medium to heavy. It perfectly covers the redness on my face, the dark and dull patches and also evens out the skin tone, making my face look very perfect. It also brightens up my eye area, so this is a good foundation is you are looking for something that will keep your skin concealed.
Results and staying power: My face looks brightened up and this totally camouflages my dull skin. It does not feel cakey but it is always great to tap it up with some setting powder to take away excess greasiness and oiliness. It has a dewy finish, so if you want a matte finish then topping it up with a powder would be great.
It is a good option for normal to oily skin but I doubt it for dry skin since it clings to dry patches and might also clog pores. While this says that Olay provides hydration, the hydration that it provided was not enough. It stays for a good time of 4-5 hours and then starts to fade off. The time can be increased by adding a primer beneath and setting it with a setting powder.

Would I Repurchase/Recommend Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless 3-in-1 Liquid Foundation?
