Covergirl + Olay Facelift Effect Firming Makeup in Medium
Disclaimer: I received this for review from BzzAgent. All opinions are my own.Covergirl + Olay Facelift Effect Firming Makeup is supposed to provide flawless coverage with the powerful hydrating effects of a night cream. Featuring the "exclusive Olay FaceFirm technology", this foundation is infused with a concentrated vitamin complex that hydrates, plumps, and lifts. Not only that, but after two weeks of continued use, skin firmness is supposed to be improved.
Billed as a hydrating foundation, my initial concern is that this would be too dewy for my oily skin. Indeed, while the initial finish was a nice semi-matte, I had to blot my skin before even completing my morning makeup routine. Not a good sign. After blotting and setting with a powder, I got about 7 hours of wear before I noticed fading. Not quite as long as some of my other foundations better suited for oily skin, but given the weather was still hot and humid on my first wear, my hope was the onset of cooler weather would bring better results. After all, I needed to wear this for 2 weeks solid to see if there really is a firming effect :-
