REVIEW: CoverFX MintTint FX & Skin Tint FX Moisturizing Treatment/Tint

CoverFX is a fabulous cruelty-free Canadian brand that focuses on giving flawless coverage while using safe ingredients to protect and nourish the skin. They add SPF to a lot of their products to keep the delicate facial skin protected from UV rays while out in the sun. They have a wide range of products, from lip care to foundation to primers, and I first fell in love with the company based on my experiences with their ClearPrepFX primer, which treats acne and gives a matte finish. If you suffer from acne, that is the primer you need in your life! It is absolutely amazing.
I recently got the opportunity to try out their lip tint line, called MintTint tinted anti-aging lip glaze ($22.00/3ml)- the products all contain refreshing and plumping peppermint! This gloss hydrates and softens while plumping. It is meant to provide a natural looking, non-sticky and healthy tint. As these products are lip tints, they are not highly pigmented- they add a touch of colour and lots of shine!

Here I am wearing Coral Chablis, and as you can see, it is very shiny but not extremely pigmented! It looks much brighter in the tube, but goes on muted. I quite like this because I personally prefer neutral looking lip shades over dramatic ones. The product itself is fabulous- it smells minty and tingles when first applied, although the tingling goes away quickly. It is extremely moisturizing! The lip tint is not sticky at all (woo hoo!) and it goes on silky smooth. I would not consider it long lasting, however. It is easily accidentally consumed if you're eating while wearing the tint, and it also transferred somewhat onto glassware. This product comes in seven gorgeous shades, and Coral Chablis is absolutely perfect for summer time!

Skin Tint FX Moisturizing Treatment/Tint in E LIGHT
 I was extremely excited to try out CoverFX's SkinTintFX Moisturizing Treatment/Tint with SPF 30 ($42.00/30ml) ! It is a tinted moisturizer that has natural pearlized minerals to provide a hint of colour and give a sun kissed look. This product is infused with peptides, ceramides and multi-vitamins to rejuvenate, nourish, hydrate and protect the skin. It is oil free, wax free, fragrance free and paraben free.

Skin Tint FX Moisturizing Treatment/Tint blends into the skin with ease.  As you can see in the above photos, I swatched it, then started to blend it, and in the final picture you can see the moisturizer fully blended into my skin. This product is meant to give a healthy and natural sun-kissed glow- it has a very fine shimmer in it which is hard to pick up in photographs. The glitter is extremely subtle, however it looks fabulous! The shimmer is very understated and natural, which makes my face look dewy and glowing! It is very light weight and gives a very sheer coverage- this product is not going to hide blemishes or dark marks! If you are looking for a product that will moisturize, give you SPF protection, and even out your skin tone while providing slight luminosity, this is it! It has a great light texture, did not cause any break outs (bonus!) and makes my skin look glowy and beautiful! I love how easily it blends into the skin, and I love how it isn't greasy or shiny on the face. Overall, this is a fantastic product and I am definitely going to keep using it this summer to keep me looking my best. 

You can find CoverFX products at Shopper's Drugmart and Sephora, or on their website :)

    1. it is really nice, but it has shimmer! so definitely keep that in mind. I wouldn't wear it every day, I think I would wear it on special occasions or going out days, but not necessarily to work.
