An ultra-creamy foundation and concealer in one that provides an all-day radiant finish. Nourishes and protects with anti-aging benefits. Provides optimum coverage of skin imperfections such as acne, redness, melasma, under eye circles, uneven skin tones, post-surgical bruising, vitiligo, and tattoos and protection from wind, sun and pollution.
The foundation comes in a typical round compact that has a mirror, sponge which is under a flap underneath the foundation. I personally don’t use sponges to apply my foundation but it’s great to have if you ever need to use it on the go.
Like most foundations from Cover FX this cream foundation has an amazing amount of shades to choose from, so you are bound to find a shade that is the perfect match. I used the handy Cover FX shade finder tool that by the way provided the exact match for my skin tone. They divide their shades into three groups: P, for pink; N, for neutral; and G, for golden On top of the great shade selection this foundation also contains SPF 30, and yes you read that right. I don’t think I have ever owned a cream foundation with an SPF as high as this one. Count me impressed.
Coverage / Formula
This foundation has a very thick and creamy formula that blends easily with a regular foundation brush. Cover FX states this product can be used as both a foundation and a concealer, and me being someone who loves multi purpose products that aspect is a big bonus for me personally. This foundation is probably the most versatile foundation when it comes to coverage. You can literally apply this as sheer as you want or as full as you want. Although I don’t have an issue with acne I have redness on my face due to my lupus so I prefer a full coverage foundation most of the time. This foundation covered up redness on my face, evened out my skin tone and did a great job in concealing my dark under eye circles.
The staying power is as to be expected for a cream foundation. If you have dry skin like myself than this should last you all throughout the day without wearing off. If you have oily skin I would recommend setting it with a loose or translucent powder to be extra safe especially in the warmer months.
