I didn't mind this product was not fantastic but wAsnt terrible either. I used it up but prob would not repurchase .
I got a rather large sample as a gift from Sephora and everything is perfect about it.
The sifter opens and closes so you control how much product comes out and when! It leaves a beautiful luminance and it's tinted which means no white cast for photos. Definitely will repurchase once I run out! This is way better than banana powder which I purchased around the same time. Banana powder dulls me out and makes me look chalky but this is divine perfection!
I'm reviewing the Cover FX Matte setting powder (which i suspect is different to other people's reviews because mine has none of the sheen or dewiness that they reported...)
I have quite oily skin so the Sephora SA recommended this in 'medium' to me claiming i would love it. And i wanted to love it, but sadly i can't. First of all, the colour is all wrong on me (NC25, Bourjois 52-53, Nars Sheer Matte in Punjab) - its a little too dark and looks 'dirty' and ashy on my skin. It doesn't give me any sort of radiance or healthy glow, not even when it wears into my skin.
So disappointing! I'll try to use it in the summer months when my skin is a little darker but i would not repurchase because it's not worth the money and there are loads of drugstore products that work better for me :(
I really like this setting powder. It's not chalky at all, and leaves a very pretty luminous finnish. A little goes a long way. And you can put a product over the powder if needed and it will stay as is. Won't cake up at all. I have repurchased this item many times.
I love this setting powder. It is so light and sheer with a touch of sheen. I found that a little goes a long way with this powder otherwise it can make you look white as a ghost. I lightly will touch my brush into the powder tap of the access and quickly dust my face and that is all you need. It sets up my foundation for a long lasting finish. Love it!
I had the opportunity to upgrade some of my makeup (mostly cheap department store stuff) and the cosmetician recommended Cover-FX. I was not happy with it all. It was far too light - it seemed to accentuate the dark circles under my eyes! I looked pale/sickly, like a ghost, and by midday my face also looked shiny and oily. Ugh. My 6$ covergirl powder is 10 times better than this 32$ product.
The only way this product might work is if you had a really thick, heavy foundation underneath. But even then I can't see how the 6$ Covergirl wouldn't do better than this.
Needed to follow Cover FX foundation. Best application process: roll your brush across the skin in short stokes the diameter of the brush. Afterwards you can BUFF the powder into the skin with your brush for a nice sheen or glow. I wouldn't buy this individually to use as a powder, but I find it did set the Cover FX foundation nicely.
When I bought my Cover FX Cream Foundation(which I hated) I was told to buy this to set it with. Once this is opened the powder is EVERYWHERE. It's so messy. It only comes in 2 colors & it made me look like a cakey white ghost when I set the foundation with it. I was disappoint in the Cover FX items I bought. continued >>
I bought two other loose powders before but none compare to this. I loooove how dewey it makes my skin look (which I can see how some girls can hate) and i love how my makeup lasts all day. I do not like the price but I'm pretty sure it'll last me all year. Love the stuff!
I got this in a swap, and am SO glad that I didn't pay for it! First, you can save a LOT of money by just going out and buying the Coty Airpsun Luminous Translucent loose powder for $6.99! This product is $32 at Sephora. The effect of this ends up giving you this weird Twilight vampire shimmer. While I can appreciate some hot boys with this look on the silver screen, it isn't so much the look I'm going for to settle my liquid foundation. Not only this, but it broke my nose out after wearing it for just one day! I wouldn't recommend this to anyone!
