Cover Girl + Olay De-Puffer Concealer Helps Bag the Bags

As I have been getting older, I have seen an increase in the size of bags I am getting under my eyes. I used to not have a problem but since I do sleep on my stomach a lot, I am sure that does not help much. Plus over work and some late nights is not helping either. Enter the cool De-puffer Concealer and my problem area is diminished. I was excited to review this product and share the results with you
Cover Girl + Olay De-Puffer Concealer Helps Bag the Bags! What I enjoyed the most about this product is the consistency. It is a super smooth product that glides across your skin. It blends in beautifully and this light/medium shade was the right choice for my under eye area.

The applicator is a cool tool so you do not have to use your fingers as much. I always use my ring finger to lightly apply my concealers. But the tip has this neat cooling effect that can help reduce some baggage too. Just let it sit on your swollen under eyes and it feels lovely.

This product worked great with the Cover Girl + Olay foundation that I reviewed prior and covered wonderfully. I loved watching the under eye bags reduce over the course of an hour or so. Plus the little lines and wrinkles went bye bye too!

I do not have issues with dark circles so I cannot comment on that issue, but I was very pleased with the results I found using this product and will definitely keep it on my must have beauty routine list!

Firm Up Your Face with CoverGirl + Olay Facelift Effect Foundation


I was chosen to be a part of a campaign to review this new product. I have used Olay products for years and really enjoy them. I have not really used the Cover Girl line too much, which is a bit surprising considering my age. LOL

I hae to say that I was pleasantly surprised with the Facelift Effect foundation. I normally use a liquid or mineral foundation so when I tried this, I was not sure what to expect. Plus with it being in a jar, I was interested in the texture and the difference from a liquid.

The first thing that struck me was the consistency. It is a light texture - almost like it is whipped. It reminded me of frosting but in a good way. The application is incredibly smooth and the coverage is excellent. A little bit goes a long way! I was pleased with how long it lasted on my skin as well.

I loved the addition of the Olay and I could almost see the tiny lines and wrinkles vanish as I applied the product. My crows feet are the worst area and I really loved the fact that they were puffed up and out and this really reduced the visibility of those wrinkles! My skin felt a bit firmer overall too. Great for aging skin!

Another thing I loved is the feel of the product on my skin. It left it so soft and touchable. Definitely a big plus for me! The CoverGirl + Olay Facelift Effect Foundation is one I would buy again but I would need 2 different colors. The light/medium I chose was a tad light for my face, but it will be perfect for winter when I am not in the sun as much.

Overall, I was pleased with the results and with the amount of product you get in this jar, it will last me for quite a while. Definitely a good value too!
