I have been using Covergirl & Olay pressed powder for almost a year.
I use it every day, and am not even half way through the compact. It is
indeed ond of the best products I have ever used. The coverage is great,
and it leaves my skin looking flawless. I hope they never stop making it!!

I had some coupons for Covergil and wanted to pick up the Simply Ageless Conceale. When I went to Wlagreens they had a buy 1 get 1 - 50% Off. I figured, this was something that I hadn't heard much about and decided to take a chance.
I was so upset that I didnt have this until now! This powder....I don't think I am going to be able to express how much I love it. Its so smooth, and lightweight. It doesn't sit on top of the skin but doesn't sink into lines and pores. It is a PERFECT satin finish. It set my foundation and make me look flawless all day, even through hot AZ weather. No matter how much I build it up it NEVER, EVER cakes up!
It hasn't broken me out. It doesn't oxidize. It keeps my oily t-zone in check.
It is however a little more on the expensive side for a drugstore powder, but Covergirl, Uta, Walgreens and lots of other stores are typically good about having some sort of deal or coupon,
My only con would be I wish the packaging was a little more sturdy, but it hasn't deterred me from buying a back up. And it wont deter me in the future from repurchasing.
I didn't think anything was ever going to override my Rimmel Stay Matte. But this...Well it has completely overtaken anything else I have been or have ever used.
A must try!!!!!!!!
Bought this on a whim and glad I did. This is a really nice powder. I've tried a lot of them, they always seem cakey or chalky so I seldom reach for them but this is different and it is my new HG. Very smooth "creamy" feel.. very smoothing on the skin. Not completely flat matte finish, more of a satin so you look alive. No sparkles or shimmers though. Not the slightest bit chalky. Good pigmentation. I do not rely on it to control oil, I use good primers for that.. but it leaves a very smooth, soft finish all day on my combination skin. Seems to work well with various foundations of different finishes, I have a few I rotate through. Also great under the eyes to set concealer. Nice compact, but the puff is awful and there is very little room for a nice thick one, since I use a brush or sponge to apply just to set my foundation or concealer it is not a problem for me. I have never tried it as powder foundation, but considering the finish and pigmentation it may be a good candidate. Very good for mature or problem skin it just smooths everything out and leaves a very airbrushed finish.
