Cover FX is well known for their Custom Enhancer Drops, both the foundation drops, and their ever so famous illuminating drops.
I wanted to review this foundation for you guys because I think it deserves just as much credit and recognition. I received quite a few sample cards from Sephora and I have worn this foundation about 5 times now… but I knew from the first application that I was in love.
“A water-based liquid foundation that imparts a radiant finish to the skin”
When I first tried this Natural Finish Foundation I was instantly impressed. It truly gives such a healthy radiance to the skin, covers the redness in my face with just one layer, and it builds up really well to give medium / full coverage. It never feels heavy on the skin and looks like your skin but 100x better!! Just see my selfie below. I am glowing and I look naturally radiant!!
This foundation is Vegan, Free of Parabens, Fragrance, Gluten, mineral Oil and Talc.
Cover FX has a shade system which is based on undertone and is broken down into three categories. Neutral, Pink, and Golden. I fit into the Neutral and Golden category. What I really love about Cover FX is that their foundation shades are all the same. When you find a match in one foundation, it will be the same shade in their other foundations. See the photo below explaining how to find your perfect shade! I took this off of Sephora’s website and I find it to be really helpful.
This foundation has a wide shade range with 40 shades which means it is easy to find a shade match for most people!! I normally wear N40, but as I am getting more of a tan I have been mixing in G50 and this seems to be a good match for me.
I have combo skin that gets oily in my tzone so I like to apply this foundation with a foundation brush, or my Real Techniques Dual-Ended Expert Sponge used dry. This helps the foundation to work a little better on my combo skin and does not go on as dewey as it would if I used a damp beauty sponge. I then use a damp beauty sponge to press a mattifying loose setting powder into my tzone to really help extend the wear of this foundation. I would definitely say that this foundation is better suited for normal to dry skin types, but with setting powder and blotting powder, combo skin girls and boys can make this work very well, especially during the drying winter months!
I am wearing this foundation on a day when I was suffering from a really bad breakout. It covered all my redness and discolouration so easily. I did not use a filter or edit this selfie in any way and this photo was taken in natural light. I wanted you guys to be able to see just how stunning this foundation is on!!
You can shop this foundation at Sephora here.
I highly suggest getting a sample of this foundation to see if it works for your skin type. And if you feel that this is far too dewey for you, I suggest checking out their new Power Play Foundation which is a modern-matte blurring foundation, another foundation from Cover FX that I absolutely love and will be reviewing soon.
I hope you found this review helpful! I will be picking up a bottle of this foundation soon because I love the way it makes my skin look!
