Review: Cover | FX Mattifying Primer with Anti-Acne Treatment

Welcome back ladies and gents! In this post I’m talking about a product I have been using for about 3 months now and to be completely honest with you, I genuinely have nothing good to say about it. I hate to say that right out of the gate but unfortunately that’s how it is. Normally, when I review something it has both its pros and its cons. However, I can’t say the same thing for this guy.

I was snooping around Sephora back in December right after Christmas and this primer immediately caught my eye. I have an oily skin type and it’s mattifying. Awesome! I have the occasional acne situation and this stuff has anti-acne treatment. EVEN BETTER! I knew I had to give it a try. I had heard a lot of good things about Cover | FX so that’s why I immediately had no hesitations with purchasing this.

Alas, we’re going on 3 months and I have to say I’m EXTREMELY disappointed in this stuff. Even with this “Anti-Acne Treatment” I see no change in the condition of my skin. I mean NONE. And as far as its mattifying capabilities;

They’re ZERO. I might as well not even be wearing a primer.

The 2 things this product has going for it:

1.It smells nice

2.The packaging is attractive

I’m really saddened by this. I really had high hopes. Ah well, on to the next one.

My Beauty Tips:


ALWAYS use a primer under your makeup. It will improve wear and extend the life of your makeup for the day.



Slightly outline your lips just outside your natural lip line

and follow with your favorite nude lipstick. This creates the illusion of a fuller lip!


When applying bronzer think about the places the sun naturally hits your face. That is wear you want to apply your bronzer to give you a natural looking false tan.
