There are 40 shades available and Cover FX created a shade system to help you find your true match. PS: I use the shade G50.

To make shade matching simple, our shades are consistent across all formulas. Find your match in one Cover FX foundation and it’s your perfect match across all formulas.

Find your undertone (Underlying skintone)

  • P = Pink – A rosy, cooler hue to the skin
  • N = Neutral – Equal parts of pink and golden to the skin
  • G = Golden – A yellow, warmer hue to the skin*

* The G+ shades in the Golden range are even warmer and more olive than the G shades


Power Play has plastic packaging and foundation is dispersed through squeezing the bottle. I like this because it helps me use every bit of foundation.

Cover FX’s Power Play foundation isn’t super thick or insanely watery. It blends really well and has clean ingredients.


Although this foundation claims to be full coverage, it’s medium coverage on me and can be built to full if I add on an additional layer. I enjoy this foundation a ton because it feels lightweight on my skin, is long lasting, controls shine, and most importantly, matches my skin without having to do any adjustments like I’m used to doing with some of my other foundations (adding mixers, having to bronze or highlight more than usual, mix 2 shades, etc.)

Heck, I’m on my second bottle of Cover FX Power Play and have my third repurchased already. Power Play works really well on my skin and is a trustworthy foundation, one I’m confident in wearing at special events and day to day to work.

I pair this foundation with Cover FX’s Blurring Primer and it’s a match made in heaven to battle my huge pores and uneven skin.
