Everytime, I walk into Sephora asking about other brands of makeup, I am always directed to the Cover Fx Shelf, both in Jersey and in New York.. This brand is highly recommended specifically for its maximum coverage and natural finish. I took interest in this due to the brand being suitable for acne-prone skin, which is what my skin is right now. I also break out from foundations that have a lot of fragrance in them, which this one does not.

I tried the B45 which seemed to be the exact same tone as my complexion. It has a cream to powder finish. It is not easy to blend (probably due to being oil free). It is kind of thick, like a "light" concealer (a bit much for the warmer weather, but I purchased it for the Fall). However, I used the MAC  190 to apply it and blended with MAC 187 (Stipling Brush). It applied flawlessly, however, it made me look really dark after a while. I am not sure if it's because I applied the Cover Fx Blot Powder on top of it. I found out that  it looks very nice by itself without topping it with any powder.

I am still trying to get used to it. I like to top my foundations with powders, maybe this one just wants to be left alone.

  4. @tamunobelema Hi Dear, thanks for stopping by. It has a long staying effect. The coverage is very good . It's the color change that I have issues with. I am about to do a review on their blotting powder, which is the business.
