Cover FX Natural FX Water Based Foundation Review

If it’s extra coverage you desire in a thick, creamy formula, Cover FX Natural FX Water Based Foundation may be what your skin seeks!


Jump ahead to hear the review.

Available in a generous size tube, I do mean generous as a little goes a long way, with an SPF 15, Cover FX Natural FX Water Based Foundation is a good start to creating flawless skin.

I’ve been muddling around with this for a week and I’ve finally decided it’s a solid foundation that I really like. The formula is a thick, creamy moisturizing base not unlike that of a tinted moisturizer but no where near as runny. You can 1. wear it on it’s own or 2. mix some in with your moisturizer for a more dewy finish. It could be considered drying to some but simple prepping and priming prior to use will get you an even, easy to blend finish.


The foundation is rich and heavily pigmented so a tiny bit goes a very long way. Although Cover FX advertises it as sheer to medium coverage I do believe you can take it one step further and go with full coverage. I’ve found prepping is key for applying any Cover FX products so be sure to use a gentle exfoliater prior to use, followed up with a light serum or moisturizer, and finally a primer.

On my dry skin the product works best when mixed with a drop of moisturizer and applied by hand however if my skin decides it wants to be oily I find application with a sponge easier particularly a slightly damp one. Coverage is quite flawless and evens out skin beautifully well hiding minor to heavier skin problems such as acne scarring, redness, etc….coverage feels very light without the heaviness of the actual product.


I have M40 here and I think I need a little bit lighter as this was a tad too orange on my face however it still managed to even out my skin tone, erase dullness, and even acted as a concealer due to it’s heavy pigmentation.

Overall, quite a great foundation particularly for those who have problem skin or have a need to cover up more.

Anyone try?

    I’ve been using this for two years, and I completely agree with everything u said!:) I have yet to try it with primer. I usually just apply it with sponge and dust the coverfx setting powder. It is incredibly light! Like u said, covers very well but doesn’t feel too heavy on my skin.it’s a bit pricy but a tube lasts me almost a year, so it’s definitely worth the $$. Haha. This is my favourite.<3 I ordered the coverfx matte primer yesterday. Can't wait to use it!:)
