Need a Shade Deeper Than NW50/55? Look Here…

Read ALL about my review process including how I take swatches, photos, and more here.

A few weeks ago I attended a press event for Cover FX’s recently revamped foundation, concealer, and powder collection. The brand new formulations are free of talc (which can have an “ashy” appearance on the skin), mineral oil, gluten, fragrance, and parabens. If you were a long time Cover FX fan, you may also notice that the shades are now in an easy to figure out range: P = Pink •N = Neutral (Equal parts pink and golden) •G = Golden and as the numbers go up, the shades get deeper. The brand has also included shades for those with very fair and very deep skin.

Though the shade range isn’t perfect (for instance there’s no exact match for my NW47 skin), I do commend the brand for having such a vast range of shades. In fact when they sent over shades N120 in both the Total Cover Cream and Pressed Mineral Foundations, I noticed they’re a viable option for those who are darker than an NW55 and I really appreciate it for being more on the neutral side (many brands offer deeper shades but many have a ton of red in them).

Total Cover Cream allows you to customize your foundation coverage as you can build from medium to full. It also dries to more of a powder finish making it an option for all skin types (though if you have oily skin, this may be more of a fall/winter foundation). Pressed Mineral Foundation can be used on its own or to set your Total Cover Cream.
