Thursday Thoughts – @CoverFX Power Play Concealer

September 26, 2019

Today, I’m testing out the @coverfx Power Play Concealer ($30 for .34 ounces at @ultabeauty – I’m a huge sports fan, so when my love of makeup and professional athletics combine in a fun product name, it’s hard for me to resist picking it up!

What it claims:

🔘 High performance wear

🔘 Weightless, full coverage with all-day, crease-proof, transfer-proof and color-true wear

🔘 Available in diverse shades to conceal, contour and highlight any skin tone

🔘 Vegan, cruelty free, talc free, paraben free, fragrance free, mineral oil free, gluten free, Alkyl sulfate free and phthalate free

My experience:

🔘 I purchased shade N Light 2 (for light to medium skin w/neutral undertones). It’s definitely too dark for me, so I should have purchased N Light 1 (for fair to light skin w/neutral undertones.

👎🏻 Even though the shade being too dark is my fault, the fact that it’s very yellow isn’t. I wish it was more neutral – like it says it is.

👍🏻 I really enjoy the applicator. It’s the right size for under the eye and doesn’t disperse too much product at once.

👍🏻 The coverage is good. I have a couple of concealers with more, but this is definitely high medium/low full.

👍🏻 It doesn’t dry super quickly, which I like because I want to have time to blend it out.

👍🏻 It worked well with all of the products I used underneath and over it.

👍🏻👎🏻 It looks the tiniest bit dry under my eyes.

👍🏻👎🏻 It started to come off in the corners of my eyes because I’ve been sneezing and I hate that. However, it happens with almost every concealer I own.

My verdict?

This is a good concealer. I may like it more if the shade was right, but it’s $3 more than my current favorite, so I see no need to repurchase. In order to make sure none goes to waste, I’ll just mix it with a lighter concealer.

Have you tried this concealer? If so, what were your thoughts?
