Questions & Answers for Cover FX Matte Setting Powder

Question
Does the sheer actually disappear? Or if I am light-medium in all foundation styles, should I use the medium?

I use the sheer and am a light/medium skin shade. I also have somewhat of an olive tone to my skin so that can be hard to work with. It doesn't give that ghostly, chalky look that some setting powders do. Just a note, doesn't take a lot to be effective so I apply lightly which probably helps not looking washed out.

Honestly, I would go for light. It's always better to be a little lighter than to have an orange-looking face. For me, this powder does add a tiny bit of colour, but it makes my foundation look more natural. I use the Light colour and it basically just makes me face matte and makes me look more away! However, I use the most amount of product on under my eyes, and basically my t-zone because I have oily skin. You barely need to use any product for this, and it smooths beautifully. Keep in mind it does crease under eyes a little bit, but not extremely. It also creases in my smile-lines, which I hate, but other than that I absolutely love this powder and would never buy another!

They changed the product to matte formula and there are 3 color variety. If you can go to a store to see the shades try that to find the one that matches best. I used to use the translucent light myself and now I get the light version but I am considering the medium for the summer days when my skin gets that summer glow from just being out walking

Question
How deep is "deep"?
I have this in medium, but wonder if deep would work better with my summer tan. I'm naturally tan (and mixed) but tend to gain quite a bit of color in the summer. Is this mostly for darker girls or could this work for me without making my face look too dark?

I suggest going to your nearest Sephora store and asking for a small sample. This will help you gauge what works best for you. I am a G30, so fairly light, and use a Medium setting powder and it works just fine. I can only assume that the "deep" will work for you. But better safe than sorry! :)

Question
What color setting powder should I order?
I use Cover FX cc cream in p-medium deep. I am not sure whether to order the light or the medium matte setting powder. I am not looking for more color or to look orange, just to set the cc cream. I have fairly tan skin, brown hair and eyes.

The light is very light. I have fair to light skin and use the light powder. I would say it defiantly brightens up my skin tone. So for darker tomes I would defiantly use the darker shades.

For you, go with medium or dark. This powder is very translucent and barely adds any color, but makes my skin look silky smooth and sets beautifully. I'm extremely pale (I use Urban Decay's naked foundation in 0.5) and I find the lightest color is almost white before applied, but it's barely noticable on my skin. More translucent than anything, so once again, barely any color is added. I completely doubt it will make you look orange even if you choose the darkest shade. I'd say medium finally, just because it's better to be a tad lighter and add a little bronzer than to be too dark! But you should definitely purchase this powder. :)

How best to apply it with a powder brush?

I use a disposable makeup wedge to apply it. I dip it into the powder and then press it into my skin. If you use a brush I would also recommend pressing into the skin rather than brushing/swirling it on- as that can usually create the dreaded "cake face" look as you're simply mixing liquid foundation and powder together.

Rather than swirling the product over your face, dip the powder brush into the product and pack it onto your skin.

According to clerk in Sephora, the illuminating powder has little sparkles in it to make your face look a little shinier so she didn't recommend for oily skin. The matte helps absorb oil and make your skin look less oily

The Matte powder does not have or add any shine, sparkle, or dewiness. It would work best to help control oil.

The illuminating powder does have some shine, luminosity to it. If you don't have to worry about being too oily and too shiny, then this could add some radiance.

I've been using this product for months to set my foundation and have never looked pale in pictures! I do use Nars Laguna bronzing powder over this, but trust me, as someone who always tries to look as sunkissed as possible, I've never felt pale using this product.

Cover F/X might be what you are looking for. I just started using it and love it. It has very little color to it, is light and sets makeup for the entire day. Unlike the powder I used prior to this, it leaves no dry looking wrinkles.
