I put the NEW Cover FX Custom Cover Drops to the test in this first impressions foundation review! See how it performs on a normal/dry skintype PLUS a review from a guest blogger with combo/oily skin 🙂
FYI: I have normal to dry skin and I’m about an NC20 in depth.
So here is the full face shot…
My photography skills are amateurish but here are some close ups of the dry areas, hopefully you can see what I mean!
Can you see the product sitting awkwardly between my brows? Crevice of the nose? Smile lines exacerbated? Maybe? I TRIED.
Other mixing scenarios
As per Michelle’s recommendation, I tried mixing the Cover FX Custom Cover Drops with the Dr Jart+ Day Tint and the result was MUCH nicer; the day tint is very emollient so it didn’t pick up on dry patches quite as much. This mixture provided a very dewy finish but it didn’t last a full day on me – it began to break up a bit towards the evening.
I tried mixing it with some of my skincare (MV Rose Protective Moisturiser, my favourite) and it separated on the back of my hand so clearly a conflict in formula.
I mixed a drop with my favourite foundation, Armani Lasting Silk, which bumped up the coverage a notch but the combo wasn’t as kind to my dry areas as it would be if I wore the Armani alone.
Td;dr version: despite being a rather liquid formula, the Custom Cover Drops are a more matte/dryish formula alone so dry skin types will need to experiment with emollient mixers. If you have oilier skin, I imagine that you won’t encounter many issues and experimenting would be a less tedious task!
