Cover Fx Power Play Foundation Review


Hey guys, 

How is your August looking so far? I hope it’s filled with happy days and sunshine. I am super excited as I start my new job this month! But I have some time off before I do start so I am enjoying relaxing and taking some down time. 

Last month I attended a Cover Fx Afternoon Tea to celebrate their iconic Power Play Foundation! I had the very best afternoon and I wrote a post all about that experience here. Prior to being kindly gifted some products from their range, I was a big fan of their concealer and the new products I have tried are just as incredible. 





Cover Fx Power Play Foundation | £38.00 for 35ml | Find it here

  • Available in 40 diverse shades
  • Sweatproof/ Waterproof/Transfer-proof
  • Vegan & Cruelty Free
  • Free from talc, oil, fragrance, parabans and gluten 
  • Stays all day without drying or dulling complexion 
This is a demi-matte foundation that does not dry my skin or look remotely heavy on the skin. It is buildable and can be applied in layers to create a more high-coverage finish. Throughout summer I have been wearing a tinted moisturiser but for the last few weeks I’ve been trying and testing Power Play.. It’s official... I am reverting back to foundation! It does not cover my skin to the extent where it leaves skin looking like a mask, my skin still shows through. My perfect shade and the shade I was matched to is N40 (this is the top shade in the medium section and is N for neutral, containing equal parts of pink and golden tones). This is matched so it blends into my neck and I do currently have a slight natural tan where I have caught the sun. 



Shade N40

 When it comes to application, I have tried a flat top foundation brush but actually fingertips are now my preferred method to create a more natural finish, as suggested by Cover Fx Director Of Artistry Trevor O’Keeffe. 
 After wearing the foundation for a full work day (8 hours plus) my skin doesn’t look tired or lack- lustre. It lasts throughout the day with no obvious signs of wearing. 

Whilst their Power Play foundation is exceptional, there are a few other picks from Cover FX that I have been enjoying teamed with my foundation. 






1. Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops in Halo | £34.00 for 15ml | Find them here
So these drops leave skin looking ethereal, beautiful and I honestly feel like a sexy unicorn when I apply it to the tops of cheekbones, collarbones and shoulders. 
The drops will last a very long time because a little goes a long way. 

2. Cover FX High Performance Setting Spray | £23.00 for 120ml | Find it here
This setting spray really feels like a steam when you mist it across the skin. Does that make sense.. it’s like a fine steam and not at all heavy or “squirty”. My makeup doesn’t budge after using this. 

3. Cover FX Matte Setting Powder | £29.00 | Find it here
If you weren’t a fan of the Laura Mercier Powder (it had flashback, sorry but I wasn’t a fan guys) this is on a whole other level. It’s incredibly finely milled and doesn’t contain any talc for a soft finish. 

I hope you enjoyed having a read of my review and let me know your top Cover Fx picks below!
