REVIEW & FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Cover FX Custom Cover Drops Posted at 2:09 PM 0 comments (+)
With the weather getting warmer, my skin slowly tanning, and realizing that I don't want to throw out the coin to purchase all of my favorite foundations in new colors for the season I finally decided to jump on the Cover FX Custom Cover Drops bandwagon. I'll admit, when I first heard about these I had no intentions of even giving them a shot. They simply sounded a little too gimmicky for me. It seemed like the type of thing that your average person really didn't need in their makeup collection (although sounded fantastic for all of the makeup artists out there.) But as I've started to notice the few foundations I currently stick to using are now too light for me, I just decided it was probably time to stop being a hater before even giving the product a chance. So, I took a trip on over to my local Sephora and looked to see what I could make work.

It took me a little while to find the right color for me, as I tend to be "in between" with most lines and have slightly difficult undertones to match. With most foundations, I need to go with warm under tones as I've got yellow/gold/green. But with these drops, I had to go with N30 (neutral.) I found that a lot of the neutral shades were quite yellow and warm, and G20 was too light for me as G30 was too dark.

I'll start with my complaints, as I've only got one. My only problem with this product is the packaging. It comes in a dropper, which makes sense as you only need 1-4 drops depending on your desires coverage. Though I can't help but feel they could've found a less messy way to go about this. Of all dropper products I've tried, this is simply the messiest and is easy to get everywhere. But as I said, that's my only complaint.

This product is truly a life saver and now a staple in my makeup collection. I tested it with two of my favorite foundations that are currently too light (Nars Sheer Glow & Too Faced Born This Way) and compared it to another favorite that happens to match me (Makeup Forever ULTRA HD Stick.) As shown in the picture, with these drops I'm able to transform these two into a near perfect match. Another great thing about this product is that you can mix it with just a moisturizer or primer for a more natural look, but I personally have yet to try that. The drops are pure pigment so I'm very impressed with the fact that I only need 1 or 2 drops to transform the color to match, which means that this little bottle will last me quite some time even though it's only 0.5 FL OZ. It's really exciting to know that I will no longer have to go out and buy a new shade of foundation every time I get a tan or get pale in the winter, I merely need to own a shade or two in these custom cover drops. I'm so ridiculously impressed with this product, especially considering the last Cover FX product I tried was a disappointment. I'll more than likely be heading out in a few weeks to grab one more shade for when I truly get a tan in the summer. Bless this product.
