Are the COVER FX Monochromatic Blush Duos Worth the Hype?
YES! If you couldn’t tell by the fact that I own nearly every shade of the Cover FX Monochromatic Blush Duos, I am a huge fan of the formula. I LOVE that these blush duos are certified clean and are Talc-Free.
Although the pigmented formula immediately impressed me, I had a bit of a learning curve when first using these blushes. As someone with fair skin, I quickly realized I needed to use a large fluffy brush and a light hand to apply these COVER FX Blushes more naturally.
Each blush duo blends with ease and plays well with other powder and cream products. Whether I wear the matte side, shimmer side, or a mix of both, my cheeks have a radiant flush. Most importantly, the shimmery side does not enhance my texture or the appearance of pores nor does it make my oily-skin look greasy.
Do I think you need all of the Monochromatic Blush Duos? No. I suggest waiting to purchase one or two of the COVER FX Monochromatic Blush Duos when they are on sale.
P.S. It isn’t just me loving these blushes – the COVER FX Monochromatic Blush Duos are constantly out of stock at Sephora!
