Concealers -COVER FX -Power Play Concealer

So far, this matches me the best in the winter. I use the shade G Deep 3 as my foundation and concentrate it in areas where I need coverage. I like this concealer as it has a nice consistency that can be built up to full coverage. It smooths the skin nicely and blends very well well with buffing brush or beauty sponge. The applicator is a bit awkward (round), but it works. Mixes well with other products and does not get cakey or change texture on face. Most foundation/concealers for dark skin lean orange/red on me, but this has a true golden undertone which matches me perfectly.
When setting with powder and setting spray, this lasts all day on my combo skin. Doesn't really seem to have a scent. Very light on skin and does not feel mask like.

Powder -COVER FX -Pressed Mineral Foundation

This looks absolutely beautiful on me, I use it as my everyday go to foundation. I use my usual concealer then buff this over the top with a kabuki brush. It is light to medium coverage but that suits me day to day on my oily combination skin. I find it sits best on moisturised skin which has been left to settle for around 10 mins. I bought N25 initially but it is slightly on the pale side, N30 is a better colour match. It is pricey but the results mean that I don’t mind paying.


Foundations -COVER FX -Power Play Liquid Foundation

I have mostly normal skin and have never used this without having a hydrating base on underneath (facial oil or Josie Maran SPF, etc) so I can't speak to how drying it may be on its own, but I've never had any issues with looking dry or cakey. The only spot that can sometimes look a bit flakey is the bottom of my nose, which is where I'm always most dry.

I find this to be extremely skin like and love that I do not have to powder it. It isn't completely transfer proof like I've heard some people claim, but it's definitely not slipping and sliding off your face. I don't look matte or dewy with this, just a natural satin finish.

The bottle definitely sucks, not sure what they were thinking there. Storing it upside down helps though.

Concealers -COVER FX -Cream Concealer

I's an NC 20-25 and (surprisingly) use shade shade G Medium. It's pretty decent--economical (I use a sesame seed-sized bit each time) and effective. However, I find getting it into difficult places (the red bits around my nose, for example) a bit tricky and prefer a wand. I'll chug through this and may buy it again but am thinking of giving the Fenty or NARS a whirl next time around.

Primer/ Corrector -COVER FX -Water Cloud Primer

on 1/23/2019 2:28:00 AM

I decided I needed to include more anti-oxidants on my skin during the daytime than my sunscreen provides. I don't use serums or moisturizers in the daytime because they don't work well with my sunscreen, and I can't stand layers of products on my face. I'm still too naturally oily, even in a dry climate, to tolerate moisturizer under foundation, so I've settled for just my sunscreen for years. I was attracted to the interesting ingredients in Water Cloud, particularly the Scenedesmus Rubescens Extract and the Alteromonas Ferment Extract. Water Cloud is the only primer I've ever purchased, because I truly enjoy wearing it. It's not heavy, it doesn't cause me to breakout, and it works with my EltaMD Sunscreen and my foundation. I can't stand layers of product on my face, so I always skipped primer. When this one came along, I read about its unique texture and I figured it couldn't hurt to try it. It feels refreshing, adds light moisture (but not greasy or slimy) and it feels more like a gel than a typical siliconey primer.

UPDATE: I took off one lippie because I've gone through this tube so fast. This is not very concentrated so it seems I need a lot to cover my face and neck. It truly feels fantastic upon application, and it works beautifully, it's just overpriced for how quickly it gets used up (on me).
