Tiny Purchase - Cover FX

Hello all...

Today I come to you with an amazing buy!  This was something I had been eyeing, but seeing as how I am on a low buy right now, I had not picked it up.  I found this kit at Sephora inside JC Penny for $20 USD.  This usually retails at $49.00 USD, so you can see...I made out like a bandit :)

Cover FX Acne Treat + Conceal kit (medium)

Back of packaging
This kit contains four products to prep and treat, cover, blot and cleanse.  I got this in medium.  As a fair latina, I find that medium runs a pretty huge gamut and it is hard to find a perfect match a lot of the time.  But I am hoping for the best with this, and once I have given this a decent trial, will be reviewing it in the future.

Products from Cover FX kit
Kit includes:

ClearPrep FX matte foundation primer and anti-acne treatment gel 15ml/0.5 fl.oz
Conceal FX Camouflage Concealer 15ml/0.5 fl.oz
Matte FX Oil absorbing primer and blotting powder 12g/0.42oz
Clean FX Makeup Cleansing Mousse 55ml/1.86 fl.oz

Cover FX can be found at Sephora b+m stores and online, as well as Cover FX online.  I did not see a kit on either site online, but the products in the kit were available separately.

There were still kits that were available at the same Sephora for full price...My box had a minute tear in it, other than that, all products were intact and fresh, so I have no idea why it was on clearance...

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 HR blush in Frisky - swatch/review

Tarte AC blush in Frisky
Today I bring you Tarte's Amazonian Clay 12 hour blush in Frisky.  This blush can be found at Sephora, Ulta, and Tarte's own site.  There are 15 colors to this series.  Each blush retails for $26.00 USD and contains 5.6g/0.20oz of powder product inside.  The case is a hard plastic with sturdy closure, mirror inside. Tarte has colored the plastic as close to the blush color inside as possible.

Tarte AC blush Frisky - outdoors/no flash/overcast
The color of this compact in particular is very close to what you get inside the pan.  This is a bright, shimmering coral with gold flecks.  The compact does a good job of reflecting that.

Tarte AC Frisky - outdoor/overcast/no flash
At first swipe of this for a swatch, Frisky was very bright.  It almost turned me off to it.  Also, the gold flecks, which are damn beautiful to look at, flew all over my skin.  The texture of this blush is nice.  The blush cake is hard, but soft to a brush's touch.  I do not find this to be powdery at all, the only fallout was the glitter.  The glitter does not stick around (WOO HOO!), once you swirl over the brush and tap the brush, you do not get any of the glitter on your face.

AC Frisky blush: outdoor/overcast/no flash
This looks vibrant, and it really is, but what I love about the formula is that it is incredibly buildable.  I do find that not all AC's are created equal.  The blush cake on this is firm, and when you swatch with either a brush or finger, it does not feel as if you are picking up a ton, but a swatch later, and holy pigmentation!  Light touches with this particular blush are best.  I have a few other AC's that I do two or three swipes with in order to get a nice amount of color.  I would not say that for me, combo-oily skin, these last 12 hours.  I do get a good 6-8 hour period though, and you cannot beat that.

These are all really great blushes.  I like that the color range isn't overwhelming in regards to color choice.

Thanks for stopping by!
