Introducing EVOLUTIONMAN

EVOLUTIONMAN is a skin care and cosmetics collection founded by celebrity stylist Marco Berardini. It’s geared to men, as you might surmise from the name, but we ladies might find some products that we’d like. Recently, EVOLUTIONMAN sent me its Moisture Protect SPF 20 Bronze bronzing fluid and its Conceal & Treat concealer stick to try.

Bronzing fluid is great. It really warms up the complexion. This product would also flatter folks with deeper complexions than mine. You can use it to tone down redness or you can adjust your foundation shade by adding a touch of bronzing fluid – good to know for summer.

My complaint about EVOLUTIONMAN ‘s Moisture Protect SPF 20 Bronze bronzing fluid is that it’s runny. I lose a lot of product. It’s imperative that you shake the tube really well to mix the product. A more gel-like consistency would be better, or else EVOLUTIONMAN might consider a pump bottle. While Moisture Protect Bronze bronzing fluid is rated SPF 20, a thin layer will not provide adequate sun protection. Layer it over sunscreen.

I like EVOLUTIONMAN’s Conceal & Treat concealer stick. It blends easily with the skin. It’s drier than the Cover Girl + Olay’s concealer balm. I received Conceal & Treat concealer sticks in Light and Medium. Medium is too deep for my complexion. If you’d like to try it, please fire off an email to me at thestylepage [dot] com. I’d appreciate your review and comments for this blog.

Cover Girl & Olay Concealer Balm

Leave it to the master marketers at P&G to take a pink lotion (the original Oil of Olay) and build an brand with several skin care lines around the Olay name.  Then there’s the cross-branding: Cover Girl & Olay and the Gillette Venus & Olay razor.  Cover Girl & Olay Concealer Balm is a recent addition to the Cover Girl & Olay line promoted by Ellen DeGeneres.

I have a confession to make: I have never mastered concealer under the eyes.  Many MUAs think that concealer is a basic and essential part of makeup.  However, when I apply concealer, what looks good at one angle doesn’t look good at another angle.  Then there’s the problem of blending.

So how do I use Cover Girl & Olay Concealer Balm?  To cover red spots on my face.  After my husband made remarks about my makeup looking like a mask, I went for a nautral look.  First, I used Mally’s Skin Perfecting Tinted Liquid Face Defender to even out my skin tone.  I then applied Cover Girl & Olay Concealer Balm over the red spots and blended it with the end of a moistened Beautyblender.  Presto!  Cover Girl & Olay Concealer Balm melds with the skin.

Cover Girl & Olay Concealer Balm comes in 6 shades:

  • Fair
  • Fair/Light
  • Light
  • Light/Medium
  • Medium
  • Medium/Deep

Cover Girl & Olay Concealer Balm is widely available at supermarkets, drugstores, and big box stores.  Watch out for coupons and in-store sales for discounts.
