Today I thought I would share with you my thoughts on the Illuminating Primer from Cover FX! Last month, I decided to give it a try because I saw Sephora was offering a deluxe sample. So, I used some of my Sephora Beauty Insider points to get it so I could see what it’s all about. I had never tried anything from Cover FX before, but it’s been recommended to me numerous times! Here are my thoughts and some information on the Illuminating Primer.

My Thoughts: I really liked using up my deluxe sample of the Cover FX Illuminating Primer! It was nice to be able to try something out without spending money on the full size. I have to say, I was quite impressed with this primer. I’m not usually a fan of face primers, but I really liked this one! It was very light on my face, it absorbed quickly, and it didn’t feel oily or heavy. It also had a pleasant scent to it, which I find a lot of primers don’t. I was surprised that it actually gave my face a more luminous glow. I’m not really sure how good it was at doing what a primer should do, but I loved the illuminating effects it had on my face! I would definitely consider buying the full size primer!
