Sometimes you need to make exceptions to the rules. After all, they’re made to be broken. Right? Well I’ve always sworn against powder. I firmly believe that face powder sits into fine lines and ages you. Therefore, whenever I’m on set for a shoot, I use blotting papers to control shine. Powder is the enemy… until now. Before presenting at the CEW Beauty Awards back in May, I had a CoverGirl makeup artist do my makeup and she wanted to use powder, “It’s moisturizing, I promise, it won’t cake.” I trusted her and found a new favorite product.
She was right. It controlled my shine and oil all day while I was at the awards ceremony, presenting under the bright lights so I immediately emailed the publicist to find out what this new, mysterious product was as I had to have it. It’s CoverGirl + Olay Pressed Powder. The PR girls sent it over to me and I’ve been using it for TV appearances ever since.
I like that it comes in a compact so I can throw it into my bag for touch ups without worrying about it spilling all over the place. What I really like though is the way it feels on my skin – lightweight. It doesn’t crawl into the creases around my eyes and even provides a little bit of coverage. It really is a finishing touch for my skin. What genius came up with the idea to combine the cosmetics from CoverGirl with the skincare from Olay I’m not sure, but it’s working. Perhaps the best part is that it’s a true bargain buy!
