When you talk about a new foundation, it's always hard to describe. You want to know about basics, like how it covers, how it wears and what it looks like. While full photos of a finished face are lovely, you don't actually know if you are looking at the foundation, a highlighter, great lighting, a primer or anything else. It's just so subjective and hard to judge.
I thought it might be easiest to share how a foundation covers and looks by showing you how half my face looks with and without foundation. This way, you can compare how it looks covering melasma, dark circles, etc. I'll take all photos in the same light in my studio, so it's honestly apples to apples. I should also mention that I personally like my foundation light. I have a lot of hyper pigmentation, and my neck and face are different colors, so I prefer to match my neck. This way, I'm even all over. I'm a little picky about this...
Cover FX Total Cover Cream Foundation was recently reformulated, now based more on undertones -- pink, neutral and gold. Hopefully this will make finding your perfect match even easier. If you haven't tried Cover FX, here is what you should know about them. Their foundations offer a medium to full coverage that looks very natural and pretty instead of heavy or cakey. You can easily control how heavy the coverage is with the application. A damp sponge gives a lighter look. A foundation brush gives a heavier look. A stippling brush gives coverage in the middle. It contains Vitamins A and E, has an SPF of 30 and is available in 28 shades. This foundation is very long-wearing and it does not oxidize, melt or move on me (in a 10 hour time frame). It's pretty amazing and there isn't much else you can ask for in a foundation.
So let's take a gander to see the texture, coverage and my final look.
Here is my face before anything. I'm only wearing Jan Marini Antioxidant SPF, Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentrate and Lise Watier Eye Cream. Don't judge. It's for science.
