This is my holy grail setting powder. I picked it up as an exchange when I returned the Laura Mercier translucent loose setting powder. Nothing against Laura Mercier as that is one of my go-to cosmetic brands, but the setting powder didn't work for me after trying it 372947 million different ways as an attempt to love it.

For reference I have light to medium yellow/olive skin that …

I quite like the CoverFX setting powder. They have two kinds – one that is matte and one that adds a luminous glow or something like that. I purchased the matte. The price was fine, I was going in with the expectation of spending $40 (as that’s typically the price of decent makeup here in Toronto, CA) and it was less which was great.

To give you an idea of my tone, politically …

I am personally a big fan of FX Cover since they whole brand and product line were developed by a group of dermatologist from Canada. I do have extremely sensitive skin and usually I can’t use foundation or so and their products have gave me great result. I personally use this loose powder over makeup once I am done and add a bit of their blush after. When I don’t want to wear any makeup, I use …Read more

*Review of COVER FX Setting FX Matte in Light* This has been my HG setting powder for a while, especially in the summer months. I loved how it gave a matte finish without looking powdery or unnatural. In the winter months, my skin is quite dry, and I find I can only use this powder on my nose and chin (where I'm oily) or it adds to the dryness on the rest of my face. Lately I have been …Read more

I love the matte version! I use it to set everything from mineral makeup to liquid. I'm crazy about setting powder because foundation tends to disappear from my face easily. This makes it wear longer. I like the fine texture of it, I apply by swirling the powder around the dish to lightly coat my kabuki, then lightly stamp it into my skin. It doesn't make my foundation look cakey and it …Read more

This is a review for the "Illuminating setting powder".

As a loyal MUA user, I usually don’t go out purchase anything with a rating less than say 3.8 just in case.

I have sensitive dry skin and have reactions to pretty much from Clarins to Dior. So the derm section was usually the only makeup I can touch.

This loose powder is exactly what I was looking …

HOW is this supposed to be a matte setting powder when mica is the first ingredient?!?? If you're not familiar, mica is extremely light-reflective; it's what's used in mineral powders to give an illuminating (let's face it, sparkly) quality to the skin. So, there's that. I looked it up, and this powder is darn expensive to boot! Luckily, I was gifted this by my auntie. I …Read more

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 …

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 …
