It's no secret that I love CoverGirl products. I use pressed powder on a daily basis because my skin tends to be shiny. I also find that using powder helps the foundation I use to set better and last longer. Unfortunately I have discovered with my advancing age that fine lines are showing up more as well. That is why I chose to try the Advanced Radiance line of CoverGirl's pressed powder.
My normal use is to apply it over my foundation for a matte look. Used with the Advanced Radiance foundation, this powder successfully hides the fine lines that have started appearing around my eyes and mouth. On the days when I just don't feel like using foundation, this powder works great on its own. I use the Creamy Natural color and it adds just the right amount of tint while subduing my shine. While the coverage is great, I do find that the powder doesn't last all day, especially if not used over foundation. The compact, however, fits easily in my purse so it is easy to reapply whenever I need to. That little hiccup is not going to turn me away from using this product as I am generally pleased with the results I get.
