Cover FX Power Play Foundation Review

Cover FX Power Play Foundation

Cover FX recently launched a new foundation called “Power Play”. Thankfully I was sent a few shades by Cover FX to test out and I was pretty excited to try them out. I’ve never used any Cover FX foundations. When I saw that these were a matte foundation I was even more excited to put it to the test.

Cover FX Power Play Foundation

Cover FX Power Play foundation is a modern matte foundation. It gives you a full coverage look with a weightless feel and it provides sweatproof all-day wear, powerful shine control, and environmental protection. Cover FX Shade System is based on undertone for a truly perfect match.

The new foundation comes in 40 different shades ranging from light to deep. On top of that, you’re able to find a foundation based on your undertones. 

  • P = Pink – A rosy, cooler hue to the skin
  • N = Neutral – Equal parts of pink and golden to the skin
  • G = Golden – A yellow, warmer hue to the skin
  • G+ = shades in the Golden range are even warmer and more olive than the G shades

Because I have a warmer and more olive complexion, I was sent a variety of G shades, G50, G60, G60+, G70, and G80. Since I am pretty tan from my vacation last month, I am currently using the G70. This actually matches the BEST. I have a feeling I’ll be using G80 this summer if I get a bit darker.

First off, can we talk about the packaging? Personally some people would hate this but to be honest, I love it. You do have to squeeze the tube to get the product out but I love that you’re able to place it upside down so all the product can go to the bottom when you’re getting low. 

What’s the foundation price? $44.

This foundation is QUITE PRICEY but as a high-end foundation, I definitely recommend it if you’re someone who has combination or oily skin. I have been trying this foundation out for over a month now and let tell you, I am loving this foundation. It’s lightweight and it’s buildable. You don’t get a full coverage right away but you can build it up to get that full coverage.

I’ve worn the foundation for more than 8 hours and I was surprised by how long it lasted, how the foundation didn’t break apart and I wasn’t oily at all. When applying the foundation it doesn’t dry out as fast as other matte foundation I’ve used. Works well with a beauty blender. Another plus to this foundation is that it doesn’t oxidize and will remain the same color you’ve applied throughout the day. I can see myself wearing this foundation throughout the summer. 

I highly recommend giving this foundation a try. I don’t know if I would recommend it to those who have dry skin.
