This ultra-lightweight loose setting powder is consciously formulated without talc for an incredibly translucent finish that sets makeup for all day wear and minimizes transfer without adding any color to the skin or overpowering the finish of your foundation. Also perfect for baking, this setting powder contains light diffusing particles that blur and smooth for a skin perfecting airbrushed effect that doesn't look chalky or dry. Available in global shades for a truly translucent finish on all skin tones.
Dip a Powder Brush into the powder, tap of excess, and sweep the brush across the face to set makeup. You can also use a Beauty Blender or sponge to set or bake your foundation and concealer.

Pros

  • Blends Well

Cons

Best Uses

Comments about COVER FX Perfect Setting Powder:

I was really wanting to love this product, but it was a no go for me. I have really dry patchy skin and this just made me feel like the desert. It settled in my under eye creases and eye lid. This product also HAS a flash back making you turn into a ghost in photos. The product might work best for someone with severely oily skin.

Can be dry

By AliG

from Concord, Ca

Comments about COVER FX Perfect Setting Powder:

If you have dry skin it can look a little cakey, not good for setting under eye concealer if you have fine lines it will settle within them

      It looks so pretty when your skin isn't dry because then it settles in the cracks but other than that it's so smooth and flawless ! For sure would buy again!

        • Sensitive Skin

        Comments about COVER FX Perfect Setting Powder:

        I use this powder daily to set my under eye area, and it never lets me down. It doesn't add or subtract coverage from my concealer, or look dry and cakey. I've also used it to set my entire face and it doesn't change the color of my foundation, or leave a white cast on my face, like some other powders I've tried. My under eyes tend to get a little dry in the winter, and I haven't had that problem at all since switching to this product. It also doesn't emphasize any dry patches that pop up on my face.

        I have normal to dry skin, and so I can't speak to how this product would perform on someone who's oily or combo. I also have pretty sensitive skin and this hasn't irritated me.

        Worst powder ever

        By Jeca

        from Houston

        Comments about COVER FX Perfect Setting Powder:

        It doesn't set anything and it just makes your concealer and foundation look cakey. Horrible! Worst money ever spent on makeup!

          Comments about COVER FX Perfect Setting Powder:

          OK so I've been having trouble with setting my foundation cause all the things I've tried just settled in my eye wrinkles. But this wonderful woman in NYC's Ulta (shoutout to TARA!! Hey, giiirl!!) suggested this loose powder for me. The ingredients list is free of: paraben, fragrance, gluten, mineral oil, and talc. They also don't tell you this on the package but on their website, it says: "Cover FX products are not tested on animals. Cover FX is PETA approved." AWESOME.

              Hi Pearl,
              Great question! Our Perfect Setting Powder is great for an oily skin type. We would advise you to pair this with our Mattifying Primer to also help with oil control.

              Hello Cindy,
              Great question. If your skin tone pulls a true deep undertone, we would advise you to try shade dark in our Perfect Setting Powder.

            Would this product be okay on sensitive combination skin? My mother has rosacea and I'll be doing her makeup. She's prone to break out if the products aren't compatible for her.
