Cover FX Liquid Foundation & Tinted Moisturizer Review/Demo

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another review!  You all know how much I love the Cover FX line.  Recently I had a chance to test out more of their products, including their liquid foundation, tinted moisturizer and makeup remover mousse.  I'm loving all of these products for the summer as I transition to lighter products.

Check out the video!  I show you a demo of the foundation and give you a quick review.

Of course, here is a written review with pictures for those of you who can't watch the video.

Natural FX Water Based Liquid Foundation SPF 15 $40.00
I don't know what it is about Cover FX products, but I always notice that they photograph really beautifully.  That applied to their cream foundations, and the same goes with this water based liquid foundation.  It has SPF 15 but doesn't photograph weird.  The product feels really good on and it really does feel nourishing.  You can build this up for a nice coverage and it's a concealer and foundation in one.  I'm a toss up between M60 and M80 depending on how tan I am.

Here's a completely un-edited shot of me wearing this foundation.  Looks great right?

Skin Tint FX SPF 30 $42
I really feel like everyone should have a tinted moisturizer in their collection.  Especially for summer, it's a great way to get moisture, coverage and SPF all in one product. The Skin Tint has a really cool mousse formula that blends in really easily and it even has line and pore filling properties.  I use the Medium Light Shade and it gives me a nice glow.  I think i'll definitely be rocking this on a daily basis for the Summer - in face I'm wearing it right now :)

Skin Prep FX $45
This is an anti-aging serum and primer in one.  I already reviewed it along with the Cover FX Big Cover Kit here, but i've recently rediscovered this as a great way to lock in moisture.  I pop it on top of my moisturizer and notice that my skin feels nourished throughout the day.  This is a great tool for those of you with dry skin like me.  Mind you, this is not a mattifying primer.  It's more for blurring pores and lines.

Make Up Cleansing Mousse $28
This is a really neat and gentle, non-messy, foaming formula.  It really gets the make-off without excessive pulling at your skin.  Even the hardest, waterproof liners come right off.  Use this with a q-tip to get smudges off without messing up your makeup, or use with a cotton pad for larger areas.  You don't need to rinse this off either.  I also like to rub it all over my face with my hands and then rise to get everything off.  Don't do it more than once though because my skin was a little too dried out after.

Overall, thumbs up to all of these products.  Cover FX comes through again.  Mind you, these are pro level products so they do come with more of a premium tag on them.  If you want to invest in good products for your skin though, it's worth trying out.  You can find these products at Sephora or

Wow results look amazing.. Kinda reminds me of the vichy dermablend except that one kinda clings on to my dry patches..

This DOES photograph beautifully! I'll have to look into it. I'm using tinted moisturizers these days because my foundation shades are all over the place going to Oman and then coming back to London and fading.

Thanks for the tip!

Absolutely flawless in the picture!!! Cover FX rocks I have the kit (picked up at IMATS) and a few of the liquid foundations for my kit (courtesy of winning Celebrity MUA, Ricky Wilson's Makeup Contest)...they are amazing to use and hold up well against studio lighting and HD photography! and they blend like a dream!

This does look really nice on your skin. I use the Cover FX concealer in my kit. It's good to know about some other products in the line.
