Word on the street is Sephora V.I.B. Members are getting their 20% Off Friends and Family coupons via snail mail which starts somewhere around November 12th. I’m V.I.B. but I haven’t gotten one as of yet. The entire V.I.B. thing is a bit confusing at the moment I really don’t have a ton of info but readers have mentioned getting a 20% Off coupon in the mail and I’ve read a few bits on forums that say the same.
As I said I haven’t been privy to this yet however I did get a 10% off coupon when I recently purchased something in store. So who knows? Unsure how all this goes down as of yet but we shall see.
Reason I’m spreading the cheer about coupons and such would be because one item that’s worthy of a haul should you get a coupon is the new Cover FX The Big Cover Up Set. At $75 I was a little wary of the price however I’m thinking differently now and actually really loving the set. It’s worthy of it’s $75 price tag but it’s double worthy of hauling if you happen to snag yourself a coupon.
Jump for it!
Prior to discovering the joys of a BB Cream and pretty much liquid foundation of any kind I was on board all the way with cream foundation. Cream was my main choice for foundation and no one, no how, was snapping me out of my love of this medium. I actually grew away from cream several months after starting my blog as I was so busy trying new things daily that I was kinda forced out of my habit and my obsession with cream foundation. I’ve rediscovered the joys of cream after trying out Cover FX. Cream works so well on my dry skin, offers such great coverage and such a flawless finish. Cover FX excels in the cream arena it regards to coverage that much is a fact.
If you’ve always wanted to try the brand but was never really very sure where to start the Cover FX The Big Cover Up Set is for you. It pretty much has everything you need to start your journey with Cover FX and possibly covert you to a believer of how flawless your face can look.
The set contains:
- SkinPrep FX
- Cover FX
- Setting FX
- Cover FX #170 Precision Foundation Brush
- How To DVD
Count me silly but I absolutely loved that this had a How To DVD. It’s not like I need help applying foundation but I watched the entire video and I felt like I learned a few tips and tricks as Cover FX is an interesting medium to work with and can easily be over done if you aren’t careful. Watching the video I learned a lot about application and how to keep it gentle during application. I felt it was a big plus including the DVD with the set.
As I mentioned above it pretty much contains everything you’ll need for flawless cover. You’ll start out using the Cover FX Skinprep which is basically a silicon base primer. It may contain silicon but it’s quite light and very comfortable to wear even for those who dislike such a primer like myself.
After prepping you’ll start in with coverage using the Cover FX Cream Foundation. This basically is a dual pot which houses powder on the bottom and a trio of Cover FX shades of cream foundation on top. You can mix up your perfect shade using all three colors found in the compact. I find the E series seems to be the best match for me especially if I combine all three shades. The coverage is very pigmented so a little goes a long way. It’s particularly good for covering minor acne scarring, dark circles, dull skin, redness, etc…..the product is so richly pigmented it’ll give the illusion of near perfect skin after use. You can apply the foundation using the generous, full size foundation brush included with the set. Cover FX powder is included as well to complete the look and set the foundation for long wear.
Overall, I was very wary of the $75 price tag but since trying Cover FX in general I think this is probably a rather great deal. This allows you to try much of what Cover FX offers so you can get a real feel for the brand before dishing out further. The kit is complete so you pretty much get everything you need for base makeup coverage plus the foundation itself doubles up as a concealer.
All in all pretty much a winner for me and Muse Approved for purchase. I don’t need a ton of coverage but I can’t deny the beautiful, fresh, flawless coverage this provides and offers plus it’s ability to wear long for me is always a bonus as I hate touching up through the day.
Keep your eyes peeled for a giveaway soon as I have one kit that I’ll be throwing out to the masses shortly.
