Cover Fx Pressed Mineral Foundation Review with Swatches

Cover Fx Pressed Mineral Foundation

The Cover Fx Pressed Mineral Foundation is a powder foundation that provides medium to full coverage. After hearing amazing reviews about this product in terms of helping cover acne and scars, etc., I knew had to try it. I am now a BB cream convert but BB creams offer me only sheer to medium coverage so I wanted something to provide a bit of extra coverage for the days that I need it. The mineral foundation is a bit pricey ($35USD/CAD) but you get what you pay for. Cover Fx is known for providing makeup that is geared towards problematic skin so you can be sure that this powder will give you a beautiful finish without caking your face up. In addition, Cover Fx is amazing with providing a large range of shades. 

Just this past year, Cover Fx repackaged their products and came out with even more shades to suit everyone's skintone. This is one of the reasons why I didn't mind spending $35 on a powder foundation because I knew that the product I was getting would match me perfectly and would not leave me overly orange or yellow or pink (which is the number one problem between me and drugstore foundations). This powder does not break me, however, it does not control shine too well - even when I set it makeup setting spray. It comes with a pretty dense/firm sponge for applying the foundation but I use a kabuki brush to apply this all over my face instead. The product is so finely milled that a gentle tap or swipe with the kabuki picks up a lot of product! I will definitely be repurchasing this product.
