I am having a relaxing weekend, not doing much, which is just the way I like it. What is everyone up to? I want to thank everyone who commented on my post about nail polish recommendations. I seriously lack knowledge when it comes to what is the best. Makeup is definitely my forte haha. I did go out and buy a few shades from Sinful Colors, as they were on sale and thanks to everyone who mentioned it!
I wanted to share a review with you all on a product I have been testing for a while. Covergirl and Olay have been teamed up for a long time now creating makeup products. I never was too interested in buying anything from that team of makeup, but for some reason de-puffer aspect intrigued me. Plus, it was on sale and I always love myself a good sale!
What it is?
This product is a concealer and a de-puffer all in one. It is supposed to smooth out puffiness while concealing dark circles at the same time.
It comes in a small squeezable package. It has a metal applicator similar to Benefit’s Puff Off. I originally wanted to purchase Benefit’s, but I wasn’t willing to pay the price.
About the Product
The De-Puffer comes in a 6 different shades that are suitable for most skin types. They retail for $12.99 making it a bit pricier, but Covergirl products tend to go on sale quite a bit. The Olay serum has cucumber extract which allows for the eyes to appear less puffy.
What I Liked
I do admit I was very skeptical purchasing this, as I have never used a Covergirl + Olay type product before. I didn’t know what to expect and to be honest, I am not sure why I really bought it. However, I was quite impressed with how nice the applicator felt on my skin. I used it when I was going off a small amount of sleep, so when it was applied in the morning, the cool sensation instantly woke me up. I am not sure how well it did for helping the puffiness.
I really liked that the shade didn’t have any pink undertones. As you know, I have mentioned it many times before, I can’t stand pink undertones. The coverage isn’t bad for the product, it has more of a light-medium type coverage, but I don’t think that this product is focused on concealing as much as it is used for a de-puffer.
What I Didn’t Like
With the way the applicator is, it is meant to give your under eyes a cool sensation and help with any puffiness. However, it is not the greatest for blending. The product gets all over the applicator and I found it is easier to use a beauty blender or a makeup brush to get the coverage you want and to make it look more natural.
I don’t have too many negatives to say about this product. I really wanted to purchase and try it out to get a full idea of how well it works. I had to keep in mind that this is meant to be a de-puffer and I can’t base it off as a concealing product. I know that is an aspect of it, but this product is truly focused on their de-puffer. I wish there was a better way for it to be applied without it being so messy, but I don’t think that it is possible for this product.
Despite there being more positives than negatives, I don’t think I will purchase it again. I know there are other products out there that focus entirely on getting your puffy under eyes under control. I personally think that concealing shouldn’t be added into this product and I would prefer a clear gel. I do plan on using this product up as the cooling sensation is amazing!
What are your thoughts on this product? Have you tried it? Let me know!
