    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

    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.

      Comments about COVER FX Perfect Setting Powder:

      On the one hand, this product is a good powder.
      However, I have to apply a lot of it to get any results.
      I will be trying a different powder after I finish this one, but I may come back to it.

              Comments about COVER FX Perfect Setting Powder:

              I use this product to set my foundation everyday, so I love that it doesn't have half in it! I use the light/translucent shade and it's perfect for my pale skin. The powder controls any shine without caking up or settling into creases. If you're worried about the loose powder being messy, there's a stopper attached to hold the powder in. I just take out what I need for one application into the lid, and I've never had a spill catastrophe. It also lasts a while, easily a couple of months!

                Comments about COVER FX Perfect Setting Powder:

                I have tried many different powders, but I always come back to this one. It's very fine, but soft at the same time. I love that it's talc free and it's blurs all the imperfections on your face. I haven't experience flash back or a white cast on my face with this powder either. I have learned though that with this powder less is more. It looks amazing if you lightly apply just enough to set your foundation. It can get cakey if applied heavily, but that's not a problem for me because I don't like to pack on powder. I have seen where a lot of people are saying you don't get very much product, but I disagree! I have had this powder for about 4 months now and I'm just now repurchasing due to running low. For reference, I have combo, acne prone skin and this doesn't break me out and keeps me matte for most of the day.

                      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.
