Review: Covergirl Advanced Radiance Restorative Cream Foundation

Covergirl Advanced Radiance Cream Foundations in

PRODUCT INFO FROM COVERGIRL:
Our most advanced foundation yet provides radiant coverage and reduces the look of wrinkles by 84% on average, for a well-rested, younger look instantly. With the help of Olay's exclusive Glucosamine complex, Advanced Radiance Restorative Cream Foundation rejuvenates and continuously hydrates, for a well rested look-and a glow like you've gotten a good nights sleep. Reduces the appearance of wrinkles by 84% on average, contains Olay's exclusive Glucosamine complex, rejuvinates and continuously hydrates, protects with SPF 10.

RETAIL PRICE: Php 475.00

NET WEIGHT : 30 grams

SHADES : Available in more than 15 shades.


PROS:
* consistency is creamy
* easy to blend and does not dry out too fast
* has spf 10
* feels lightweight and moisturising. I think this is suited for dry to normal skintypes.
* did not fade or cake during the day
* medium-full coverage (buildable)
* did not break me out
* since this foundation is formulated for mature skin it does not settle into fine lines. I haven't noticed that it lessened my fine lines (under eyes) after application as what they claimed but this prevents my undereye concealer from caking.
* pot contains a lot of product


CONS:
* sadly this baby is now discontinued - but they replaced it with the Simply Ageless Foundation.
* if you're allergic to Olay - this contains Olay ingredients.
* smells like dishwashing liquid or shampoo
* pot packaging is not hygenic


TIPS:
I use a tiny spatula to scoop a little amount of product in the jar. I prefer to apply this foundation in "layers" (if you want full coverage) using a wedge sponge or foundation brush. Use a damp sponge if you want a sheer coverage. Set with loose powder.

ADDICTION FACTOR:
I really love the texture of this foundation! I first purchased Buff Beige but its a tad dark on me (sadly, there were no testers available) so I went back and purchased Ivory and thank goodness it matches my skintone. I also bought Soft Honey which can also be used for contouring.

RATING :
4 / 5

the reason why I did not purchase this because of the Olay, I know some people are allergic to it so I just can't use this to anybody :)

Thanks so much for the review. I'm glad you mentioned allergic reaction to Olay products, so sadly I can't use these.
