Cover FX The Big Cover Up Kit

At The Makeup Show in May, we were introduced to Cover FX's latest hot item: The Big Cover Up, a kit with all 3 step essentials to prep, cover and set. Now, after having a chance to test it out we want to tell you what we think of it!

The seven piece set includes: Cover FX's Total Coverage Cream Foundation (3 shades!), Cover FX's Nourishing Foundation Primer and Anti-Aging Serum, Cover FX Translucent Setting Powder and the #130 Foundation Brush. Bonus DVD with a tutorial of how to use the system!

Here's what we love about the system:
-An easy to carry kit with all the essential needed for an even complexion.
-Three shades are included for a customized, flawless look. (There are four different kits to fit skin tones from fair to deep dark.)
-Medium to heavy, buildable, natural coverage from the foundation.
-The serum can be incorporated in your night time routine as it contains healthy, anti-aging properties.
-The brush looks like your average foundation brush, but it's chiseled to get into small areas and can still cover a wide surface area.
-A short, to-the-point, instructional video is included!

This kit is perfect for you if:
-You have dry skin or mature skin.
-You prefer a one-size fits all translucent, no fuss powder vs. finding the perfect shade of pigmented powder.
-Problematic skin that needs comfortable, natural coverage (rosacea, vitiligo, etc.)

Here are some tips we used to maximize the wearability of the foundation for our combo/oily skin types:
-The combination of the primer and foundation are too oily for us to use, so we didn't layer them as expected.
-Blot excess oil from the foundation before applying the setting powder.
-Use your own favorite setting powder after applying the foundation.

Overall, this makes a great addition to your makeup kit and regimen in a nice convenient compact. Available at or for $75 (a $134 value!)
