Cover Girl & Olay Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush

On a recent trip to the drug-store - I couldn't help but scope out the make-up selections! - I stumbled upon this new product from Cover Girl's Simply Ageless line. The Cover Girl & Olay Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush immediately caught my eye with its pinwheel-type swirl pattern of color and the Olay Regenerist Serum (reminded me of berries and cream ;-) ). Available in four very pretty shades, I ended up snagging the blush in 230 Lush Berry, a gorgeous rosy berry color. I have recently been getting into cream blushes, and I thought I would start out my tour with this one.

This cream product is designed to allow you to "define your cheekbones" with a wash of color, while getting the added benefits of the Olay serum which is packed full of vitamins, antioxidants, and other skin conditioners to give your skin a radiant and glowing look. When I swatched the product on my skin, I was immediately impressed by the smooth texture, and when I blended it into my face, I was left with a natural flush of color, which is buildable. The consistency is smooth and it feels soft and moisturizing on the skin, not at all heavy. You can apply this with your fingers, a wedge sponge, or stipple it on and blend it in with a brush (the product comes with a small sponge applicator, which I probably won't use). You also get quite a bit of product in the container; for 12 g, I spent $10 during a CVS sale (I think it was originally $12.99). Drug-stores constantly have sales and Buy-One-Get-One events, so it's usually possible to snatch this up for under retail price.

Here are the four colors that are currently being offered:

200 Plush Peach

200 Rich Cinnamon

220 Royal Plum

230 Lush Berry

I would recommend having a look at this cream blush. It has a very light formula, great to use for a natural summer cheek. You can check out your nearest drug-stores for this product - Duane Reade, CVS, Rite-Aid, Walgreens, and even Wal-Mart. You can also take a look at the Cover Girl website for more information as well as help with color-matching.

Has anyone test-driven this before? What do you think?


  1. I personally love cream blush...I usually set it with alittle face powder or matching powder blush(brown girls can wear alot of color). Not sure how this product would show up on my skin but I'm intrigued. Might have to check it out. Thanks for sharing babe!

  2. thanks for sharing! i've been wondering about this blush. so is the white swirl just a decoration on the bottom?

  3. Karen - Definitely check this out! I am not sure how the colors would work for different skintones (as you know I am quite pale!), but it's definitely worth the look! I chose the berry shade as I thought it would complement my complexion the best. I love your tip about setting cream blushes with a powder. I'm going to try that out! I'm going to test drive more cream products for sure. I'm always been a powder blush kind of gal, but sometimes on the heat, they can sometimes feel a little heavy.

    Yummy411 - You're so welcome! The white swirl in the product is the Olay Regenerist serum that snakes throughout the blush ;-)
