Although I’m not an avid foundation-wearer (I live in Florida, what’s the point, yo?) I still love reviewing them. My last visit with Cover FX was pretty epic. I am still a bit of the cream foundation my cheeks. Cover FX recently did some reformulation and repackaging and I gave these kids a test drive…
Moisturizing Treatment & Tint ($42)
-For sheer/tinted coverage
-Contains SPF 30
-Tints and brightens dull skin with pearlized minerals.
-Comes in 6 shades
My sample of the tinted moisturizer didn’t exactly work too well for me. I had the darkest shade: Deep. But Deep didn’t look THAT dark.
…and when blended all over.
While I love how divine it feels on my skin, I was a bit bummed out at at the few shade options that the tinted moisturizer had. But its sister the water-based foundation totally made up for that.
Water-Based Foundation ($40)
-Available in 24 shades (score!)
-Sheer to Medium/Satin coverage
-All day coverage
-Perfect for acne-prone, sensitive and dry skin
This kid was made for me. I love how weightless it feels and the shade (B25) works perfectly on my NW 45 complexion. I apply just a bit to my cheeks…
…top it off with my favorite powder, add a blush or bronzer and I’m out. Notice how my large pores practically disappear. I’ve been wearing daily on my cheeks and it doesn’t feel like I have a thing on. Which is my preference when it comes to foundation wearin’.
You can snag both of these online and at Sephora.
In the market for a new foundation? Whatcha think about Cover FX?
That’s some pretty decent coverage for water based foundation. Ive been using their creme foundation since it covers my shingles scars and discoloration really well. I just wasn’t looking forward to wearing it during the summer. This may be my solution Sephora here I come.
Weee, let me know what you think when you try it!

Water-based? Man I have so much to learn!! How would you grade it against other light weight foundations you’ve tried
It’s definitely one of the best. It even holds up in Florida’s humidity.

It looks pretty good! I might just have to give it a try 🙂
If you do, let me know what you think!
nice, but that price tag, eeeek!
It’s definitely a splurge item!
CoverFX is great! It’s supposed to be really good for people with sensitive skin (i.e. me) haha 😛
Btw what do you use to line your water line? Your eyeliner looks perfect!
Thanks lovely. That’s just Urban Decay’s Zero. One of my favorite eyeliners!
Great review! Not many Makeup bloggers review with comparison shots. BTW, your hair looks gorge!
I stalk loc rocker and made it over here after seeing your review of the Clarisonic Mia [which I am debating on buying to help with my skin clarity]
Anywho. I currently use a Clinique foundation that claims to not clog pores, but it breaks me out all the time. I am in need of a new foundation and I am hoping that this might work. Did you have any flare ups or whiteheads occur after using it?
YES to the Clarisonic! Your skin will love you forever. I haven’t experienced any flare ups after using this foundation but you know…no two faces are the same and what may work for me may not work for you. Either way, I think Cover FX is worth a try. 😉
