The line-plumping foundation that’ll fit neatly in your purse

Here’s what our Review Crew® had to say about this skin care-infused base offering

BEAUTYcrew Beauty Editor / February 23 2021

The product

As we get older, many traditional foundations with heavy coverage can be cakey and less forgiving on skin. That’s why we’re reaching for skin care-infused, hydrating and lightweight options that revitalise our complexions rather than take away from them.

Introducing: COVERGIRL Simply Ageless Instant Wrinkle-Defying Foundation, an anti-ageing foundation that tackles fine lines and premature signs of ageing. It’s infused with a hyaluronic complex that plumps lines for a fresh visage, and vitamin C to brighten and clarify tone and texture. Plus, the handy addition of SPF 20 stops harmful UVA/UVB rays from causing any future damage to skin. Sorted. 

Our panel of Review Crew® testers put this age-defying foundation to the test.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent COVERGIRL Simply Ageless Instant Wrinkle-Defying Foundation to a panel of women aged 35 and older with mature skin issues such as age spots, discolorations, fine lines and wrinkles.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about COVERGIRL Simply Ageless Instant Wrinkle-Defying Foundation.

How hydrating it was: Our members were really impressed by the moisturising formula. Many had the preconceived notion that cream foundations are cakey, but they were pleasantly surprised by this hydrating option.

The way it didn’t settle into fine lines: Reviewers liked the fact that the lightweight foundation smoothed over their fine lines and wrinkles rather than settling into them and defining them.

The convenient, portable compact: The reviewers liked that they were able to safely store away the compact in their handbag for quick on-the-go application and touch-ups throughout the day.

The verdict

“I was under the impression that cream foundations would be cakey and drying, but I LOVE this cream foundation. I use a makeup sponge to apply and find that this is such a neat and compact foundation, particularly on the move. The creamy texture is super moisturising and applies so smoothly. I often have trouble with foundation making my dry skin look even more dry, but this is hydrating and leaves an even finish all day! I will continue to purchase.”

“I tried the shade 220 Creamy Natural which suited my complexion well but seemed to have slightly pink undertones. I found this foundation glides on the skin to conceal imperfections well. It doesn’t settle into lines or look heavy or chalky. I found the coverage was medium and it lasted well during the day without leaving my skin looking dry or patchy. Overall it’s a good, affordable foundation for anyone who wants a natural finish, and a hydrating, smoothing formula.”

“So many pros to this product, I love when a foundation is pumped full of skin loving nutrients… This foundation smooths and blurs pores. It doesn’t look cakey, it has a satin finish. And my favourite part? It gave my skin a natural boost in glow. I found the best application method is with a damp beauty blender, and I set it with a light powder under my eyes to prevent it from settling into fine lines. After 6+ hours it held up pretty well on a warm day… this budget friendly option from Covergirl will be a happy addition to the makeup kit.”
