I dont do TV shopping but Leeza Gibbons made me B E L I E V E ... And you know what, its a fine product. I rarely use it all over my face - I have my Diorskin and Chanel Vitalumieres for that purpose - what I use Sheer Cover for is dusting over the very mild rosacea on my chin, and any other imperfections. Its fabulous for inflammation, and doesnt budge. I should say that I did experiment will full face coverage, but at 45 I just dont have the oil to get the glow a younger skin would get from this. I've taken off a lippy for this reason. Oh, one thing, the cleanser they send ... pee eeeeewwww ... smelt like an oil tanker (I know I bang on about odour alot, but its important! And whilst I realise scent is a subjective thing, I challenge anyone to tell me they want to put something that smells like sump on their face!). OK had vent :)
Thanks to all the ladies on this wall I was convinced to give Sheer Cover a try. Wow am I glad I did. I can honestly say in all the years i've worn make up, I have NEVER found a foundation that is as amazing as this one! It gives me a natural finish that isn't too glowy (like Bare Minerals). I have never been happier and this is a definate repurchase!
I've used Bare Minerals makeup before, but I tried Sheer Cover out because it is a lot cheaper. I'm not crazy about having two different shades to mix, but I've found that just mixing the two evenly works for me. I have pretty light skin and ordered medium and it works fine. The best part of this product for me is the concealer. I have horrible dark circles under my eyes and I was thrilled that this came with a concealer that actually WORKS! Bare Minerals says that you can use their product as a concealer, but it just didn't work for me and my dark circles. Will definitely repurchase. Also, the cleanser and moisturizer that comes with the product are very good as well. I am interested in trying some of Sheer Cover's other products (eye shadows, etc.), so if anyone has tried those, let me know!
I absolutely love this product! Other foundations either made me break out or made my skin look totally fake. I love the natural glow Sheer Cover provides, although it takes a lil while to perfect the application. If the glow is too much, all you need is to dust on some of the finishing powder which mattes the look a bit. I've found the brush makes a huge difference and the one I got with this kit really sucked, I had to toss it after I washed it. I am eagerly waiting for a Smashbox brush set & can't wait to dip it into my Sheer Cover. **EDIT** I had to change my opinion of this product after using it for a while & trying some other products. Sheercover is not suitable for combination/oily skin. Whenever I wiped or scratched my face, I would see tons of makeup on my napkin or under my nails, gross!! I found myself rarely using the finishing powder as it gave my skin a cakey look. I tried the sample kit from Everyday Minerals and it's totally changed my mind about what good mineral make up should be. Sheer Cover made my skin look oily, was a poor colour match, and didn't last through the work day. I've cancelled my auto shipments & will no longer be purchasing from them again.
I LUrve this prdt!I would buy this for my dearest mom if I got more cash!I bought 2 sets and intend to share one set with her...cos this prdt rocks!This is sorta my first time using foundation and this prdt made me lurve how flawless my face has become.
YOu might be wondering why I only used foundation for the 1st time..reason was I used to had a very good complexion but due to raging hormones,my face broke out terribly...leaving me with acne scars etc..SIGH
However,upon using this Sheer Cover, I managed to look flawless while allowing my scars to lighten at the same time..hoping eventually I will look even better with or without foundation!
Thank GOd for Sheer Cover..else I will never learn how to face the 'world' with my face with scars..which have made me lose total confidence in myself.
Sheer Cover let me regain this confidence again, truly.
I like this for a powder, however I need more coverage. I can get some coverage with the concealer and powder together. But it does nothing for texture. It's not my fave, but I by no means dislike this product. I think if I had better skin tone/texture and less dry areas I would probably LOVE this product. I do still like to use it as a loose powder over a liquid foundation.
I have NEVER found a foundation that I liked--always too cakey and thick looking. Before this, I was using Cover Girl tinted moisturizer, which worked pretty well for me. I ordered this product from the company a month ago, thinking I would just send it back if I didn't like it. I was very happy with the product.
One tip: A little does go a VERY long way, so if it seems a little too heavy on you, then use MUCH less and possibly lightly buff with a tissue after you put on the foundation, but before you put on the finishing powder. I find that really tapping off the excess on the brush before you put it on works well.
While the products seem small when you open them, they do last a long time. I have pale skin and struggle with reddness. I put the concealer on the redness around my nose and under my eyes. I ordered the "medium" package (second palest) and the color matches well.
Sheercover is the mineral makeup in that infomercial you see on tv, I decided to try it out since I've heard mineral make up is great. I received my kit yesterday and immediately tried it. RAVE! My skin looks flawless, no more redness especially around my nose and it looks natural and not cakey . I bought the kit in medium, and when I applied it to my skin I thought "oh no it may be too dark", but I was wrong because after "buffing" it out on my face, it looks perfect. It's also very simple to blend the two mineral foundations, by tapping some powder from both containers onto a piece of paper, and create a custom blend. It was always hard for me to find a foundation for my skintone. When I got colour matched at a mac counter, I was an nc25 but to me, I always thought it looked too orange.
I'm giving it 4 lippies out of 5 because even though I love the make up itself, it comes in such small quantities! When I opened up the kit I was suprised at how tiny everything was, everything from the concealer to the face wash. Also when you order from sheercover, they sign you up in their special member program, so they automatically send you the kit every month, and charge your credit card.
This is very full coverage, surprising for a powder. Kind of difficult to apply, and you have to mix to get the right shade. That having been said, it is good for an evening when you want to look polished, but not very natural looking for every day IMO. Expensive for the tiny amount of product you get.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this stuff! I bought it off an infomercial and have been using it since (2 years now). I have had moderate to the occasional severe acne for 5 years now. This stuff is the ONLY thing that covers up blemishes and the scars they leave behind. I have soo much confidence in this product and have hooked my friends on it as well. If you are considering or are using bare minerals foundation you need to try this! Ive tried soooo many mineral and liquid foundations and this is simply the best! Whether you need heavy or light coverage this makeup is perfect for creating the look you desire. Definitely worth a try!
