Has anyone ever tried CoverGirl + Olay simply ageless foundation?

It gets great reviews but still. I would like to try it since it's supposed to be targeted for aging, dry skin. If you have, does the colors run lighter or darker than what you normally use in other foundations? How's the coverage and does it wear well? Does it oxidize? Thanks in advance for all the opinions!

I've tried it and did not like it at all. I found it patchy and i it oxidized on me pretty badly. I don't have much luck with the color selection in CG foundations.

Oh, that stinks. At least you didn't waste much money on it since it's relatively cheap.

Its my go-to in the cream formula.I use #240 and its perfect for me. Im light to medium. I have rosacea and freckles and it covers well. I use a damp pouncing sponge. I use Maybeline FIT matte powder over it. Gosh ive used it so long i dont even know how long. Im nearly 58.i dont put moisturizer on my face ( i know shame on me) but i live in Sarssota where its humid so my skin is not dry....maybe because of the Olay swirl in it (?)

I tried it years ago and didn't like it. I don't like Olay products in general. I remember it went on gloppy and just didn't react well with my skin. Like I said I'm not a fan of Olay products. I find the moisturizer to be drying (which is weird I know) and I don't like the bath soap. I find it not very sudsy.

I used it as my foundation for years and was very happy with it.  My skin isn't dry, but I have a blotchy complexion with rosacea and the coverage is good without looking cakey.  When I discovered LG Balance n Brighten, I stopped using the CG as a foundation but I still dab it on my rosacea before applying BnB.

 

As far as shades, I use 210 Classic Ivory which is the second lightest shade.  That's about where I fall with most foundations.

Love the concept and the formula, have never been able to get a color match.

I would be afraid to.  Olay skincare breaks me out.

I assume it's wonderful on dry skin. My complexion is oily so this foundation made my skin very greasy.

I have used the Covergirl simple ageless foundation for years and I like it.  Sometimes it's hard to find where I live, so when I find it I buy every bottle  in my color that they have.
