Coverfx Mattifying Primer 15ml

IMG_0980

For Normal to Oily skin

Application: Apply a small amount of this gel on your face with tapping motions. Wait at least 30 seconds before you apply your choice of foundation

Claims: This lightweight, mattifying gel-primer minimizes the appearance of fine lines and pores. It also facilitates blending and extends your foundation while preventing and healing acne blemishes, all the while providing an instant mattifying effect, leaving skin texture looking flawless.

Verdict: A primer has not impressed me in a long time. I have problems with primers making my foundation appear funny and flaky but this product actually works great on my skin. Although this is not a miracle product that keeps you matte all day (no such thing), you do get a very nice application of foundation and end of using less product. Will be buying the full size when this one runs out!

Coverfx BB gel 30ml 

IMG_0983

For normal to oily skin, acneic skin types 

Application: Can be applied with fingers, brush or sponge

IMG_0876_fotor

What is a BB gel?: BB stands for blemish balm. It is a multi-function product that has coverage and skincare properties.

Claims: This lightweight formula treats blemishes, mattifies without drying and provides powerful antioxidant protection with buildable coverage and a matte finish.

Verdict: This product is pretty unusual because it appears a few shades darker when you initially squeeze it out. Apparently this is due to the hydrating clay that has a high water content and this color dries one shade lighter when blended. Still follow your usual guide lines for purchasing your shade. The medium deep in this is the same depth of color as the medium deep in the cc cream once blended! Or G40 in the usual coverfx shades.

I like this product for a medium coverage. Its lighter than the cc cream because its not as matte. I would call this more of a semi-matte natural finish. If you prefer something matte that stays matte for longer than stick with the cc cream.

Coverfx CC cream 30ml

IMG_0982

Combination to Oily skin types

Application: fingers, brush or sponge

IMG_0933_fotor

What is a CC cream?: CC stands for color correcting. Products are meant to address issues like redness or sallowness

Claims: Treats, corrects and protects skin with time-released anti-aging treatment. Provides buildable coverage and leaves a radiant, natural finish.

Verdict: This product is noticeably matte from the get-go and perfect for someone who isn’t a fan of the dewy look! Definitely helps to keep your skin matte and has a lot of coverage! I would describe this as being medium-full. its very yellow but blends very well. Great product! If you prefer something thats a little bit more natural then go the bb gel which is more semi-matte and lets your skin show through a bit more.

Coverfx Natural Finish Oil Free Foundation 30ml 

IMG_0981

Dry to normal skin types

Application: fingers, brushes or sponge

IMG_0901_fotor

Claims: This silky smooth foundation provides buildable, sheer-to-full coverage for comfortable all-day wear.

Verdict: I was surprised to find this was designed more for a drier skin type after using it a few months thinking it was desinged for oily skin. I decided to try this product despite the fact that it wasn’t hugely popular and didn’t have the greatest reviews online. Apart from the fact that the shade G30 was slightly too light for me, I thought it applied okay with a little effort. The reason I needed extra work was because it shows off your pores and your flakes! Which I don’t think is too encouraging if you have dry skin either, nobody wants to show off texture. It can look nice but I also don’t like that I do get shiny a lot quicker with this product. Not recommended for oily skin and also… not for those of you who are looking to hide unflattering textures of your face.
