Sneak Peek: CoverFX has a new CC cream!

I always get so excited whenever I find a new foundation that caters to dark/deep Women of Colour. It took us a while to get a good BB cream in our colour and I was having a huge issue finding a CC cream. Every brand was way to light or I would have to mix it with my original foundation. 

Finally, I found one that sounds quite promising!  

Cover FX’s NEW CC Cream Time Release Tinted Treatment ($45.00 CDN)! It’s all you need for all day colour and complexion correction. This Do-it-all CC Cream treats, corrects and protects your skin with buildable coverage and is available in 8 inclusive shades. As with all Cover FX products, it is also clinically tested, Vegan and Free of the Inflammatory 5: Paraben-free, Fragrance-free, Gluten-free, Mineral Oil-free and Talc-free.

Availability: Cover FX products are available at and at leading North American retailers including Shoppers Drug Mart and Sephora.

Once I come back in September from vacation, 
I will have a full review!

Foundation Series: Natural Fx by Cover Fx with Swatches

Do you all remember when I posted this picture a few weeks ago? 
I got a lot of questions on the Cover fx foundation that I was wearing. 
Here is a spotlight post on Natural fx by Cover fx.
Let me start off by saying this is a 2 in 1 foundation: Concealer & Foundation. 
I love the fact that it can be layered depending on what coverage YOU want!
My secret I add a tad bit of water if I just want super light over coverage.

I have two foundation methods that I use depending on my mood:
  • Light coverage all over
  • Light coverage all over + extra coverage under the eyes
Interested in the coverage?
*For reference I am a B45*
Check out this picture:
  • Dewy finish (light)
  • No white cast
  • SPF 15
  • Over 20 shades
  • Non-pore clogging
