After being seriously wowed by the Cover FX Total Cover Cream Foundation both in terms of formula and shade match, I was eager to try some of their other base products, and the next product I got was the Cover FX Cream Concealer £23. When it comes to concealer, I am not particularly loyal like I am with foundation and I chop and change my concealer quite frequently but I like my concealer that I use for covering blemishes and imperfections to have good coverage and for it to be relatively dewy so it doesn’t cling to any dry skin surrounding blemishes. The Cover FX Cream Concealer is suitable for all skin types and is described as being a full coverage liquid concealer designed to conceal imperfections for a flawless finish. I was impressed that this concealer can be used both under the eyes and for hiding discolouration, dark tones and imperfections as usually with concealer, they excel at one or the other and not both.
The Cover FX Cream Concealer is rich in emollients so that it blends into the skin effortlessly to instantly erase the appearance of under eye circles, redness, dark spots, sun damage, blemishes, moles, tattoos, birthmarks and visible signs of fatigue. The concealer is packaged within a 10ml grey plastic squeeze tube, with a fine nozzle which I really like as I can squeeze out as much or as little as I need, and it’s a lot more hygienic than a doe foot applicator especially when covering blemishes and breakouts. Just like the foundation, the Cream Concealer is divided into three shade ranges to suit pink, neutral and golden undertones. I opted for the shade P Light, as I have a strong pink undertone and it’s the palest shade within the P Category. There are twelve shades in total to choose from which is pretty impressive, so I’d imagine there’d be a shade for most skin tones including those with medium to deep skintones.
Shade wise, P Light is a pretty good match for my skintone. In the swatches above, it does look a little too dark for me but the skin on my face is a touch darker than the skin on my hands so it does match me a lot better. The coverage of the concealer is amazing.. it really is a very high coverage concealer, with these swatches being only a pin head sized amount of product, so you only need the tiniest amount as it goes such a long way. For a concealer with coverage as full as this, I was really surprised by how easy to blend it was and it wasn’t at all dry or chalky like some full coverage concealers can be. Once blended into the skin, it has a subtle dewy finish which I really like, and it manages to look natural on the skin.
I do prefer this concealer for covering blemishes and imperfections, than I do for concealing under my eyes but that’s only because I don’t need a full coverage concealer under my eyes just yet as I only have a little darkness which a light coverage concealer covers up absolutely fine. As an imperfection concealer, it’s just perfect. It covers up any blemishes or acne scarring amazingly well, and it even covers my freckles so I imagine it’d be excellent at covering up any pigmentation issues. I’ve never tried a concealer with coverage as full as this before, and somehow it doesn’t look at all cakey on my skin like I’d expect a super full coverage concealer to be – it really is an amazing concealer, and I love that it’s free from gluten, mineral oil, fragrance, parabens and talc too.
