I couple of years ago I started to buy my cosmetics online, since then I got carried away so much that I can’t stop doing it. Almost all my faves were bought online. And one such product was the Cover FX Bronzer. The brand is popular on YouTube mostly because of their super pigmented cosmetics, custom cover foundation drops and highlighters.
I can’t say that I’m drawn by drop-products, which is why I opted for a bronzing powder to give a go to the brand.
Name - Cover FX Bronzer. The shade is called Suntan.
Weight - 10g. Made in Canada. Shelf life - 2 years after opening.
The main component is Mica.
The packaging is simple. Just a regular cardboard box, no pouch or brush were provided, though they are usually typical only for high-end cosmetics.
The compact with the bronzer is plastic, lightweight and mirrored inside. The outer appearance is simple and nice. By the way, the compact is of good quality, because I’ve been using the bronzer for 6 months already and there aren’t any scratches. And yes, I use it rather often.

On my hand:
Suntan is a soft brown shade with a tad hint of gray as well. The shade seems more cool-toned to what we’re used to seeing and it really looks like a good inbetweener of a contouring powder and a bronzer.
Of course the Suntan shade won’t work well for heavy contouring, since it doesn't look true gray, but has only a hint of it. But in general, it’ll be a nice everyday go-to option for contorting and bronzing.
Texture-wise the powder of the bronzer is soft, silky and very pigmented. It dusts when I touch it with a brush. Unscented.
The finish is matte-satin, really natural, not glowing or dead matte. At least over my skin it doesn’t look so.
General impressions of use: I liked this Cover FX Bronzer. On my skin it looks soft and natural. The blending is fuss-free. As for the wear time, well, it’s average, but it's still one of my favorite day-to-day wear bronzers.
I’m delighted with my first purchase from the Cover FX brand. If you’re looking for a good quality, non-red bronzer, then I highly recommend you pay attention to this product. :)Thank you everybody who read my post! 😉
