I signed up to be a BzzAgent last year and this is the first time I've gotten a product to review. They have a variety of different campaigns. Basically you fill out lots of surveys and if you are the demographic that they want to sample, you can get an invite to try the product and then review it. Having a blog, facebook and twitter accounts definitely helps you out here.
The product I received was Cover Girl/Oil of Olay Tone Rehab 2 in 1 Foundation and Pressed Powder. We had three choices of colors so I picked the lightest one since I'm really fair skinned. I waited and waited for it to come. Finally it came last week.
First of all, they gave us full size samples. So if you liked it, boy were you in luck. The shade of my foundation was one darker than I normally get. So I had to work through that issue. I finally figured out if I used less I would be ok.
Pros - You use A LOT LESS of this than normal foundation. Trust me on this. Normally I use about four squirts of my normal Cover Girl foundation and this one I didn't even use a full squirt. It goes on and makes your skin feel very soft. There isn't a heavy feeling with this foundation. You don't feel like you are wearing something on your face.
Cons - Unfortunately for me there were cons. First of all my lines showed up WORSE with this makeup than normal. It is supposed to help fill in the lines but I don't know how that happens because when I add the powder it just looks cakey and made up. Not natural at all. The foundation itself isn't causing the problem...its the powder. I've read lots of reviews that love the powder. Maybe I'm not doing it right. I don't normally use pressed powder so maybe the application pad is putting it on wrong. Either way, I'm not happy about that. Second there is a lot of makeup that comes off on cell phones and kleenix. I don't like that I have to clean my phone every time I use it.
They sent me 20 $2 coupons to give out. Perhaps you are someone who this makeup will work for. If so I'm happy to mail you all of them. Just let me know.
Full Disclosure - I was provided with this product to review. Obviously the company isn't telling me what to say since it isn't all positive.
