This is one of those products you want to love. I walked into Sephora on a mission to find that foundation that would take me through the summer. My new secret weapon against the heat. They had a lady from Cover FX in the store and she told me all these wonderful things, it wouldn’t run, you could swim in it, sweat in it, live your summer lifestyle in it worry free. I was so excited! I don’t usually use a liquid foundation so she used the crème and it didn’t give me that sticky feel I find I get with liquids. She spent a decent amount of time working on applying perfectly and the finished look was pretty. However by the time I got home after hitting the gym my face was not pretty. I have pretty large pores and the foundation had sunk in and made them visible from space and of course I was shiny all over. I currently use Lancome Duel Finish and it holds up better then Cover FX to regular day. If your looking for a foundation that looks pretty for a few hours, in the office/classroom then Cover FX is for you. My search continues.
