The Cover FX Custom Coverage Drops are every girls dream! I ran into these amazing babies a few weeks ago at Sephora and was so intrigued by them I had to get a sample. If you’re anything like me and like to change up your coverage of your foundations these coverage drops are god sent.
For many people they have gone their entire makeup life not knowing there are different types of coverage a foundation can give you. I was definitely guilty of that up until I started working for Clinique! The first thing I do when I am helping someone pick out a foundation is ask them what kind of coverage they are looking for and most of the time I get a blank stare where then I ask sheer, moderate or full coverage! Sheer coverage is going to be more of your tinted moisturizers the will give you more of a light glow and subtle color. Moderate coverage is usually the base line foundation, it give you an even completion and covers some imperfections. Full coverage is going to be what I like to call the china doll skin. If you find the right full coverage foundation this will make any skin look airbrushed and smooth.
Over all Sheer, Moderate, and full coverage can be described as simply as the opacity or transparency options on most photo editing applications. Sheet is going to be your low opacity or no opacity means that it is clear and it will not conceal (or hide) a skin blemish. Whereas, your full coverage is going to be your High opacity which means that coverage is strong and will hide any blemish that it covers.
That being said you can see why the Cover FX Custom Coverage Drops can be amazing. Many people might just where one foundation and stick with it every day. Which if that’s you, more power to you. But like I said before I like to change up my coverage from day to day. Reason being some days if I’m just laying around or hanging out with some friends I don’t want to wear a full coverage airbrushed looking foundation. On the other hand if I’m going out, to a wedding, on a date, or anything of the shorts I want to have the most coverage possible.
Until I discovered these babies I usually rotate about 6-8 foundations depending on the season which is not only expensive but time consuming. I mean really how long does it take you to find that exact right match in a foundation only for you to become three shades darker with a tan. So with the Cover FX Custom Coverage Drops that completely takes away the need for multiple foundations. You can buy your favorite sheer foundation and then just simply add the drops to give you the exact coverage you need for that day.
These drops are NOT designed to be warn alone but are more of an additive because they are PURE PIGMENT. The great thing about that is you can add this to just about anything (moisturizer, foundation, oils, and serums). It’s also formulated without parabens and is a certified vegan makeup product which is a huge plus.
You can pick these babies up at just about and high end beauty store they retail for 44$ at both Sephora and Ulta. Be sure you are enrolled in the Sephora Beauty Insider Program and the Ulta Ultimate Rewards Program so that you can rack up the point and get free coupons on things like this! Right now the only deals I’ve seen with this is if you order directly form the Cover FX website, sign up for their rewards program and you receive 15 % off YOUR ENTIRE ORDER!!! I do suggest going and getting a sample before you by it to make sure the color match is right for you!

Heres the thing though, no foundation is going to be a perfect match. We have skin colors and then undertones and our faces have different colors throughout, etc. Sometimes like with my undertone its extremely hard to find a foundation with the undertone exactly how I need it so it matches my skin and body. I still have to use a bit of blush and concealer at least to add those other colors and a bit of depth back to my face but it doesn't look so flat like with most foundations.
And then when you do find a good color it's not the perfect foundation formula or coverage. This changes all of that and makes it so easy.
So you pick one of these by your skin color AND correct undertone. Then you add one to three drops depending on the coverage you want to your current foundation and the amount you normally use to a mixing plate or the back of your hand and mix it up with the back of your brush or your fingers. It mixes quickly, easily and evenly.
Then you apply and the difference is huge. There's more depth, more coverage and the color is just beautiful and not completely flat. I love a few different foundations and a few different coverage options depending on the time of year, amount of acne I have, amount of discoloration, where I'm going and what I'm doing. I own a good 5 foundations that are all over 45 dollars a piece minimum. If I had bought this before those I would have just gotten a good medium coverage foundation and used these drops because thats basically what I'm doing now to get the perfect undertone coloring that I can't get any other way. I have a lot of pink and red in my skin. Its natural and not redness that shouldn't be there. That's my undertone. I'm very light as well though and usually foundations with red or a good amount of pink are only made for African American and darker women. They do make pink undertone foundation but its usually barely there or pink and yellow and mostly its just neutral. Its been a battle and unfortunately the lancome custom color made foundation is only available in a few states as its only just been made available in the US and that's 80 dollars minimum so this is a much easier option.
It may take a little work discovering your undertone but just Google how to figure it out and you can know within a minute. Also this stuff lasts forever. I was a bit hesitant to buy because the bottle is small and even worse its not even close to full so it seemed like a rip off. But honestly just like the custom enhancer drops it lasts forever people. 1 to 3 drops is literally nothing compared to the amount and how small the drops are. I've had mine over a year and have barely made a dent. It's definitely worth it and I totally recommend it. My perfect color is P30. I'm pretty pink and usually the 1st to 3rd lightest foundation color depending on the season.
Give it a try. Go to Sephora and get a free sample. No purchase necessary. Try it out before you buy it so you get your perfect color.
Also only buy from Sephora, cult beauty or the cover fx website. Anywhere else will most likely be fake, dangerous and nothing like the real thing. Its spendy but it lasts and the quality can't be topped.
I also find these drops do add a sort of mattifying effect when added to other products. Not something that is a huge complaint, but I do prefer my skin to have more of a glowy finish.
Still a great product overall. Not sure I would repurchase only because there are quite a few similar products on the market now at a lower price point. I would like to try them and see if they compare to these.
Hope this helps if your thinking about purchasing it! It goes a long way and I belive although its expensive its worth it and photographs beautifully.
Also, I was recently having issues with the thickness of Mac Pro Longwear foundation, so I added in a couple of these drops and it made the texture so much easier to spread around and blend. Such a cool idea for a product!
