I don't know about you, but I tend to get into foundation ruts, where I only use one kind for awhile. For years, I hated liquid foundations because they were messy, and I only knew how to apply them with my fingers. When I found powder foundations, I was so happy, I thought I'd never switch again. I've recently tried some products, however, that have changed my mind again about liquid foundations, and they're all I'm using again!
If you've been a reader for awhile, you might know that I fell in love with Cover FX a while ago, and our love is still strong. They were the first product line that showed me that I wasn't a weirdo for having aging, yet still oily and blemished skin. Their makeup is all based on promoting the best, healthiest skin you can have - not just covering it up, but also healing and nourishing it. They are also a cruelty-free company.
I had reviewed their Custom Cover drops before (mixed with their Illuminating Primer), but it was a sample I picked up at Sephora, and it was the wrong color for me. I was so happy when Cover FX sent me the right shade for me (P30) and even included a couple of their new Custom Infusion Drops!
The Custom Cover Drops can be added to any base - cream, sunscreen, primer, etc - and give you custom color and coverage. The more drops, the heavier the coverage!
I admit to not generally liking sunscreen. Every time I say that, I feel like the Beauty Blogger Police are going to take my membership away! I can't help it, though. I really dislike that beachy, chemical-suncreen smell. I don't like greasy or heavy products on my face, either. I honestly didn't have high hopes for this product at first.
I love it when a combination of things turns out to be something greater than the sum of its parts. By itself, the Custom Cover drops have pigmentation, but that's it. The tinted sunscreen moisturized and protected from the sun, but didn't have any coverage. Together, I have a foundation I love, with great staying power, that has held up to the Florida sunshine.
