As many of you know, this year I became a Brand Ambassador for Cover FX and I am pretty psyched about it! I chose to partner with this fabulous under the radar brand because they are all about giving women beautiful even complexions with their wide shade range and variety of innovative coverage makeup products. Which brings me to today’s post, I can barely contain myself about how excited I am to tell you all about Cover FX’s brilliant new brainchild Custom Cover Drops!
Cover FX’s Custom Cover Drops ($44) are concentrated pure pigment drops that allow you to customize any product in your beauty regimen by adding them to your favorite skincare product. This product allows you to have total control over the level of coverage you desire. It’s so simple – all that you do is add your preferred number of Custom Cover Drops to your favorite product based on the level of coverage you desire from sheer to full coverage. And viola, you have your own customized product that works with you skin type and coverage preferences. To further add to it’s appeal, CCD come in 24 shades ranging from very light to very dark and ethnic skintones.
And it gets even better – Custom Cover Drops can be mixed with anything liquid like moisturizers, serums, oils, primers, foundations and tinted moisturizers. These revolutionary drops feature Cover FX’s Flash Fusion Technology which means that as soon as you drop the pigment into your product, the solution ‘flashes off’ leaving behind pure pigment which allows it to weightlessly transforming your favorite beauty product in the palm of your hand. These innovative pigments are coated with lecithin, which is biochemically similar to the skin, and that’s the secret sauce that allows it to blend so easily with your product.
So since you all know how obsessed I am with face oils, I had to put CCD to the test and see if these amazing sounding drops would easily combine with one of my fav face oils. So I seized the #dropportunity (clever hashtag don’t ya think? 🙂 ) and put a couple drops of face oil in the palm of my hand and then added a couple Custom Cover Drops.
And to my pleasant surprise, the pigment combined absolutely beautifully with my face oil giving my dry skin the luminous supple glow and moisture that I desire with a moderate amount of coverage. These revolutionary drops of pure pigment, give you an amazing #dropportunity to control your ideal level coverage with one drop for sheer coverage to four drops for total coverage or anywhere in between. There is a bit of a learning curve to getting the right balance of drops and product, but after a few tries I figured it out.
As I began to play with these drops, I came up with a fabulous Custom Coverage Skincare Cocktail that my skin absolutely LOVES! My CCD Cocktail is as follows: a pea sized drop of Cover FX’s Anti-Aging Primer (super smoothing, soothing and repairative), two drops of my face oil serum and one and a half Custom Cover Drops in my shade N30. Here’s how my skin looks with this perfect combination of products (this is natural light, no filters)
Whatdaya think? Kind of amazing right?! It’s just so perfect on my skin and it works so well because I am pairing it with products that my skin already loves and does well with.
Here’s yet another benefit of Custom Cover Drops, you can buy them in a shade or two deeper in order to better match your skintone during the summertime. You can also use it to darken and customize your year round coverage product, so you don’t need to buy a new color which also saves you money. So for example, my perfect match CCD shade is N30 but I also have N40, so during the summer I can mix it with Cover FX’s CC Cream in N Medium to transition me to a more golden hue during the months where I get more sun exposure. LOVE!
