CoverFX Newest Products: Ace of Bases

Hi Bellas,

Happy Monday.  This post is called Ace of Bases because CoverFX has come through once again given me a range of new products that are perfect for summer ready skin.  I've used this brand for years and recently they've got through some changes to revamp the line.  I have 3 different bases or facial primers - one for every skin type.  I'm also showing you my new favorite eye primer and an awesome foundation.  Check it out!

Onto the review!
Mattifying Primer with Anti-Acne Treatment 1.0FL OZ
Features:  Skin clarifying, pore minimizing, anti-oxidents, anti-inflammatory, hydrating
This primer is great for oily/acne-prone skin which usually goes hand in hand.  This would be great for my kit to use on teens or anyone with this skin type.  It actually has a very lightweight gel feel which is great for problem skin.  I'm a big fan of multi-tasker products, this one heals and matiffies at the same time.
 Anti-Aging Primer 1.0FL OZ
Features:  Anti-Aging, Antioxidants, Anti-Inflammatory, Hydrating
I usually go for any products with anti-aging properties because they're great for dry skin.  The primer has a built in serum to help hydrate and smooth as well as blur fine lines and pores.  When you apply it, it definitely has a very slick texture which easily glides over skin, leaving it feeling super soft and smooth.
 SPF 30 Protection Primer 1.0FL OZ
Features:  Sun protection, antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, hydrating
This is an all around great primer great for all skin types.  With SPF30, I'd even wear this on its own for a no-makeup kind of day but i'd still have some protection and blurred lines and pores.  I'm definitely bringing this with me on beach vacays.
 Anti-Age Smoothing Eye Primer
Benefits:  Smoothing, Energizing, Firming
First off, I love how this primer is so huge!  At .67 ounces, it's almost as big as the face primer.  It also comes with a nifty pump.  With a built in serum, it glides on like eye cream and I apply to my eyelids and also under my eye to make shadow and concealer last.  This is my favorite product of the whole bunch, love!
 Natural Finish Oil Free Foundation 1.0FL OZ
Features:  Buildable coverage, anti-oxidants, antiinflammatory, moiturizing, anti-aging, protection, pigment load
I've actually tried this foundation before and have always been a fan.  I love the finish it gives.  It really is natural looking and is completely vegan, paraben, fragrance, gluten, mineral and talc-free (like much of the CoverFX line).  If you find that foundations break you out or give you problems because of ingredients, give this one a try.  It's buildable and comes in 24 shades.  
 I have shade G70 - it will be a great match for the summer but i'm a little pale right now.  Regardless, it looks really nice on.  It evens skin tone and just gives you the look of naturally nice skin.  

Hope you all enjoyed!  You can find these products at www.CoverFX.com or Sephor and www.Sephora.com.
