I’ve been waiting for a brilliant innovation like this for a long time! Meet the new Custom Cover Drops by Cover FX. I’m in the middle of a torrid love affair with these babies in the little black bottle, and I have to tell you all about it. It’s kinda magic!
What they are…
Custom Cover Drops are a unique way to customize many of your existing complexion and skincare products into a nearly endless combination of skincare benefits and levels of foundation coverage. If you’ve ever wanted to turn your favorite moisturizer into a tinted moisturizer, add more coverage to your beloved foundation, or slightly alter the undertones and shades of your existing complexion coverage products — you are in luck! These unique pure pigments are encapsulated in an extremely lightweight base of skin-smoothing dimethicone and Lecithin for the most seamless appearance. I can accomplish all of these things without altering the texture or performance of the product I’m mixing the drops with.
They’re available in an impressive array of 24 shades, in pink, neutral, and golden undertones. As someone with fair-to-light skin, I picked up shade N20, and it was perfect for many of my moisturizers, hydrating anti-aging oils, and serums. It also works great with moisturizers with sunscreen, but I would probably bump up my shade to N25 if I used a mineral-based sunscreen, since those tend to turn things more pale. Cover FX really is a leader in the industry, they have perfected the levels of coverage almost anyone would need within their extensive range of foundation products for just about anything you can think of. Whether you prefer BB or CC creams, full-coverage cream formulas, or liquids — Custom Cover Drops are the perfect companion product to everything you already have.
One of my most favorite ways to use them is by adding two drops to my preferred Cover FX primer — the Mattifying Primer with Anti-Acne Treatment. It’s awesome, because I get all the benefits of the primer; it’s matte, makes my pores look super smooth, and also contains a little salicylic acid to help with breakouts. It’s the perfect complexion perfector, and it’s all about me. [Read more…]
