Cover FX is a brand I’ve tried a few times with their Cream Foundation, Cream Concealer and their Calming Primer. I don’t know why, but I never feel myself being excited by the Cover FX launches, until very recently when they announced the launch of the exciting Cover FX Super Primer Collection.
Cover FX have always had several primers within their collection, but they’ve revamped two of their existing primers and also introduced three brand new primers, making five primers in total all of which are available from Cult Beauty. Each of the five primers are 30ml each and cost £30, however the Mattifying Primer is also available in a 15ml £12 travel size too.
The Cover FX Super Primer Collection are described as having supreme textures, superior benefits and have vegan and cruelty free formulas. The idea behind the collection, is the theory that one primer doesn’t fit all as well have different skin types and different skin concerns, and I know myself I like to use multiple primers at once with an hydrating formula for my drier areas, then a pore minimising formula on my T-Zone. The five primers have been designed to complement their foundation range, and each of the primers have different coloured packaging making it easy to tell them apart.
The Cover FX Super Primer Mattifying Primer is a weightless gel primer that mattifies the skin, treats blemishes, and minimizes the appearance of pores. It features 1% salicylic acid to prevent and heal blemishes, mattifies in an instant with extended shine control, as well as blurring the pores for a pore minimising effect. Said to work well with Normal, Combo, Oily, and Acne-Prone Skin.
The Cover FX Super Primer Blurring Primer is a silky priming balm that blurs the appearance of pores and fine lines and provides an all-over soft focus filter effect. It promises to visibly smooth fine lines, minimize pores, and provide an all-over soft focus filter effect, with a weightless buildable formula so you can layer on skin to smooth without adding texture. You can use before applying makeup to prime and over makeup to retouch, and is said to work well with Normal to Dry Skin.
The Cover FX Super Primer Gripping Primer is a jelly texture primer that visibly firms, creates a smooth, glass-like finish, and grips makeup for long-wear, and is said to provide next-level grip to makeup for optimal all-day wear. It provides instant firming effects for a visibly smoother complexion with an ocean derived complex targets fine lines and improves skin clarity. It’s said to work well with Normal to Dry Skin.
The Cover FX Super Primer Dewy Skin Primer is a rich primer that nourishes and hydrates skin and imparts an instant dewy finish. It contains emollients and humectants provide rich hydration, and provides instant radiance and an all-over hydrated glow. The primer contains peptides that visibly smooth fine lines and improve skin clarity, and is said to work well with Normal to Dry Skin.
The Cover FX Super Primer Water Cloud Primer is a cooling mousse primer that refreshes and defends skin against pollution + blue light. The primer features “Next-Level Blue Light + Pollution Defense” – a skin defense complex which helps defend against blue light emissions + urban pollutants including heavy metals and free radicals, and contains emollients and humectants that provide refreshing hydration. It’s said to work well with Normal, Dry or Oily Skin.
I’m really excited about this launch as primers are one of my favourite products to try as I like that a good primer can give an instant improvement to your skin, and how your makeup applies. I am particularly intrigued by the Water Cloud Primer, the Dewy Skin Primer and the Gripping Primer so I’ll have to decide which one I prefer after reading some reviews before making a purchase. I’d love to know your thought on the new Cover FX Super Primer Collection? Which one do you think you’d prefer?
