Advanced Radiance Age-Defying Pressed Powder has a formula, texture, and finish that are identical to those of the TruBlend Pressed Powder, so the same basic comments apply. Six shades are available, and there’s not a bad one in the bunch. Both this and the TruBlend Pressed Powder are wonderful for all but very oily skin—because that will need more shine control than these powders are capable of providing.

Silky, smooth formula with skin-conditioning and skin-brightening ingredients provides a radiantly beautiful finish. Use alone to help even out skin tone, or use with Advanced Radiance Makeup to help cover fine lines and wrinkles.

Since 1961, CoverGirl has been slowly building a portfolio of cosmetics that today is about as all-encompassing as a makeup line can be. Originating from the same "medicated" ingredients found in Noxzema Skin Cream (which was never medicated in the least, but seriously irritating for skin), the debut products are still available, albeit with slight modifications. The good news is that for the past several years CoverGirl has consistently updated their line with some very impressive products, especially their foundations, concealers, and vastly improved pressed powders. They also offer some excellent eye and lip pencils, lipsticks and lip gloss, and one of the all-time best long-wearing lip paints, Outlast.

What's puzzling is that although many of CoverGirl's latest products are progressive, they tend to hang on to the lackluster-to-poor options, including abysmal powder blush and eyeshadows and their long-standing, very irritating Clean Makeup. These items may be part of CoverGirl's humble beginnings, but you certainly don't see parent company Proctor & Gamble adding eucalyptus oil and menthol to their Olay products or to products of any of the other cosmetics companies they own. If those ingredients were so important, why not use them everywhere? Needless to say, the great products outnumber the disappointments, and the prices make it easy for those on a budget to be beautiful and enjoy some state-of-the-art products, provided they shop wisely.

CoverGirl's Web site is extremely easy to navigate, and presents a wealth of product information, along with practical (if somewhat cutesy) tips and tricks for successful makeup application and for finding the shades that work best for you. CoverGirl's consumer relations department is consistently helpful if you have any questions or concerns. For example, if one of your favorite items was discontinued, you might want to know what replaced it, and they will let you know. Such service and customer concern is yet another powerful reason to believe CoverGirl really has its (class) act together.

    Wonderful for my dry skin
    • I have dry skin. I use hydrating foundation and SPF. Sometimes I'm a little too shiny or sometimes I just need to touch up my coverage in the afternoon. This powder is excellent. Some powders feel like they are sucking the moisture out of my skin - not this one. The coverage is sheer which I like. Creamy natural is a great match for my NC/NW 15 skin. Love. Oh and it's cheap!!!

    Great Powder!
    • I have normal, medium skin, with T-Zone Shine. This is the only regimen that helps my FOUNDATION last throughout my 12 hour work shift! You may find extensive, but makes a flawless base: -CG BB Cream SPF 15 -Coverup: blemishes, eyes -Foundation -Age Def Powder: T-Zone & Eyelids, then touchup throughout the day Keeps my makeup in perfect condition throughout. Prevents shine, not drying. I do wish the puff was better quality- it falls apart before I run out of powder.
