Morning Makeup Musings #89

Special weekend edition

Welcome to the weekend edition. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to post on Thursday. So I wanted to make it up with a round up of a couple new releases that I didn’t get a chance to chat about.

Cover Fx Booster Drops

CoverFx recently released a set of four different booster drops to mix into your makeup or wear alone, each with its own skincare benefits. The four options are:

  • Mattifying: to transform your liquid products to help keep oily skin matte
    SPF: contains SPF 30 and can be worn under or over makeup
    Brightening: gently reduces discoloration and unevenness in skin tone
    Super drops: plant-based extracts nourish the skin, adding a radiant glow

Each booster is $48.

Somehow, all of these drops are appealing to me, but realistically, I won’t be picking any of them up. One thing to keep in mind with anything you mix into your foundations, is that it can affect the performance of the foundation since it’s changing its consistency. At this time, that’s just not something I want to pay $50 to expertement with.

Tarte Foundcealer

After the shameful Shape tape foundation debacle, Tarte pulled the foundation and tried relaunching the Face Tape Foundation months later. Unimpressed, a lot of people ignored the relaunch.

Soon after, Tarte announced the release of a new foundation, the Foundcealer (foundation and concealer) with a shade range that was actually acceptable.

Honestly, there are no big claims being made, and I’m okay with that. It’s said to be a vegan skincare-makeup hybrid for which you can customize the coverage level, and has a natural radiant finish. I use a couple of Tarte’s skincare products already, their Maracuja oil being a staple in my routine. So, I’m curious to see how this performs. I’d try it, definitely with a sample before I purchase it though.
