Cover FX Mineral Powder Foundation

RATING (out of 5 stars): 3 stars

COST: $35

THE SKINNY: Cover FX's Mineral Powder Foundation is a matte powder that is good for your skin. After a few weeks of wearing it, I've been pleasantly surprised by how much I like it.

The powder is a little chalky going onto my face, but I'm happy with the coverage. Best of it, it doesn't clog my pores or feel heavy on my skin. I generally wear this powder foundation over Urban Decay's Naked Skin BB cream.

The packaging of this product is nice, too. Instead of having to juggle the little sponge applicator to get to the powder, it has its own home in a separate compartment in the bottom of the case.

Cover FX got its start in 2000 in Canada as a source of good-for-your-skin makeup. Mineral Powder Foundation is made without gluten, mineral oil or talc.

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep

CHECK IT OUT: Mineral Powder Foundation is available in 24 shades. I should have chosen one shade darker than I thought I needed.
