SPOT IT: COVER FX CUSTOM COVER DROPS

Stop, drop, and get excited about this new foundation.

Now you can be your own makeup artist at the drop of a pigment. Seriously: Thanks to the new Cover FX Custom Cover Drops, you can adjust your shades so you always look on point. The Sephora Glossy spoke to Derek Selby, Cover FX Global Ambassador, to get all the important details. BECKY PEDERSON

Can you explain how this product works?

It’s really simple. Custom Cover Drops are pure pigment drops that allow you to conveniently customize your foundation or skin care. Just put your product of choice in the palm of your hand and mix in Custom Cover Drops with your finger to transform into your perfect level of coverage—from a sheer tint to a full coverage foundation.

How many drops should you use?

Use one drop for sheer coverage, two for medium coverage, three for full coverage, and four for total coverage.

Can you wear them alone?

We recommend the above formula for best results, but this product gives you the freedom to customize and find out what works best for you.

Can they be mixed with any formula? Do certain formulas work better?

They mix with water-based, oil-based, and even silicone-based products. They mix easily with lotion, cream, gel, oil, foam, or mousse. I haven’t found any base yet that they won’t mix with! You can use them with moisturizers, primers, foundations, BB creams, CC creams….

What about sunscreen?

Because we take skin care so seriously, and protecting the skin from the sun is very important, we recommend you apply your sunscreen as directed by the manufacturer. We don’t know how Custom Cover Drops would affect each SPF rating, so we suggest you don’t mix with sunscreen.

What is the shade range?

We have 24 shades in our Global Shade Palette. What’s so great about the shade range is we have Custom Cover Drops for very fair skin to very deep skin in a pink, neutral, and golden undertone.

Can you mix and match drops to find your perfect shade?

Because of the vast shade range, most people will find their perfect shade already available. That said, if you want to mix and match drops to lighten or deepen your shade, you absolutely could!

What are the key ingredients?

The formula features our exclusive Flash Fusion Technology. The pigments are suspended in a solution that “flashes” off, leaving behind only pigment. The pigments are also coated in lecithin to smooth the edges of the pigments. This will give a smooth application and prevent drying on the skin.

Do they have any skincare benefits?

This product is really all about customization. You can add it to products with benefits that work for you. So, with that in mind, the possibilities are endless!

THE PRODUCT: New Cover FX Pressed Mineral Foundation

THE INSPIRATION: “Back in the ’80s, it was impossible to develop a matte product that didn’t look flat and chalky, because matte was a brand-new trend and talc was used to give the effect,” says Cover FX Chief Innovation Officer Vic Casale, who has developed some of the top-selling foundations in the world over his illustrious career. “This new product has a luminous, natural finish. It’s not heavy looking. During the process, the samples on my desk at the lab had wings and feet—everyone wanted to try it!”

THE INGREDIENTS: Amazonian clay absorbs excess oil, essential amino acids moisturize, and vitamins C and E and green tea extract soothe.

THE COVERAGE: Buildable–from sheer to full. Formulated with 17.5% pigment, which provides full coverage for even problem skin. Available in 24 shades.

THE FINISH: Matte but not flat, all day long (thanks to the binding system).

THE TIP-OFF: For a sheerer finish, apply with a powder brush.

Makeup Challenge Day 5: Copper Pigments

It’s so funny, that I chose to go with a very pigmented copper shadow on my lids. I used to wear colored eyeshadows all the time back in the day ;) Now I’m so used to keeping it simple with my favorite bronzer and blush and jazz things up with dramatic lashes or a dramatic lip, that I almost forgot what it was like to wear colors on my lids! lol I had to get used to it all day lol

Time: 25 minutes (maybe longer because I was moving slow lol)

Tools: Cover FX concealer, Cargo Blu_ray pressed powder, NARS Orgasm blush, NYX copper pigment shadow, Maybelline liquid liner, Mod half lashes, Benefit peach lip gloss, MAC seashell highlighter, Bare Minerals bronze eyeshadow

anonymous asked:

I'm super pale and I recently started using Cover FX foundation. It's really good quality, comes in quite a few different forms, and a wide range of colors. The box that the foundation is in says that the product is vegan but do you know if the company as a whole is vegan? If so then I completely 100% recommend it and if not then I will be joining you on the hunt for vegan and super light foundation.

Hello, That is awesome!
I’ve never actually heard of that company before, but Looking into them they don’t test on animals and have a very big range of vegan products.

Here is a statement i found from them:
We use carmine in some of our MintGlaze FX lip shades and Bronze FX bronzers. Carmine may be prepared from cochineal, by boiling dried insects in water. As it is made from dried insects it doesn’t meet the strict vegan definition.
We also use Hydrolyzed Milk Protein in our ClearPrep FX. Since dairy is not allowed for vegans, this product does not meet the vegan guidelines.
There are no animal derived materials in any of our other Cover FX products. You may safely use our Cover FX Cream Foundation SPF 30, Natural FX SPF 15, SkinTint FX SPF 30, Powder FX SPF 10, Mineral FX SPF 15, Matte FX, Setting FX, BritePrep FX SPF 50, SkinPrep FX, Radiant FX, Clean FX and MintGlaze FX”

What colour did you get and does it match you well?
I read a review on the foundation (on their website) and the reviewer described herself as almost exactly my complexion and that P20 was a tad too orange for her. 

The Cover FX website only seems to ship to the USA and Canada, so for everyone outside those regions BeautyBay carries their products and does free shipping.

Thank you xx

COVER FX BB Gel Mattifying Anti-Blemish Treatment Review

*I received this product from the company. All opinions are my own. 

This seems like a long, overdue review, since I’ve had this product since last summer, sorry! After surgery it took me a while to regroup. 

I was not very familiar with this brand up until recently, and graciously enough they sent me two of their new products to try out. 

This product inserts itself into the Western BB world, but with a twist. This is a gel that  "treats blemishes, mattifies without drying and provides powerful antioxidant protection with buildable coverage and a matte finish.“ It also promises to hydrate and improve skin elasticity and protect with powerful antioxidants.
