Sheer Cover Studio Makeup - Simple, Fun, and Hides The Bad Things!

I was lucky enough to be chosen by ModernMom to try out Sheer Cover Studio Makeup. I had heard a lot about it, and I was VERY curious, especially since I have, well, less than perfect porcelain skin. Behold the coolness!

 Sheer Cover Base Perfector Primer, Lengthening Mascara and Lash Lengthening Fibers, Conceal and Brighten Trio, Perfect Shade Mineral Foundation, and Sun-kissed Bronzing Minerals, as well as special brushes.

Take a look at me before. Blotches, bumps, and moles. Not a smooth terrain.

I opted to not use the primer at first out of curiosity...I wanted to see what the basic makeup could do. So, the first step was Conceal, with the Conceal and Brighten Trio:

I covered the pimples on my cheeks, and the reddish area around my nose. I also hid a pesky red spot on my chin, and the dark circles under my eyes. The compact comes with three shades that make it simple to get your perfect match.

 Next, using the same compact, I brightened! I used the white makeup in the compact and added a bit around my eyes, and just under my brow bones.

Step Three: Cover. Time for the Perfect Shade Mineral Foundation!

It went on VERY easily, and covered all, even without the primer. It took care of the redness between my eyebrows and my shiny nose.

Step four, Illuminate, using the Sun-kissed Bronzing Minerals.

I used it along my cheekbones in lieu of blusher, and also along my jaw to give it more angles.

So with the base in place, it was time for the pretty:  Lengthening Mascara and Lash Lengthening Fibers.

 It goes marcara, fibers, mascara, which melds together into seriously long lashes. Yes, this is me!

Here's my fabulous after, with all of the above:

My verdict: Sheer Cover Studio Makeup is easy to use, and it covers very well without feeling heavy or sticky.  I didn't notice a strong makeup odor, either, and normally I do. It feels great on, and leaves a wonderful matte finish that lasts through the day, though the Primer does seriously amp up the staying power. I didn't have any irritation, and that makes sense: it's non-comedogenic, dermatologist-tested, paraben-free, and sensitive-skin tested.

Oh, and the brushes are pretty, too.

I received products from Sheer Cover and ModernMom for testing and review purposes. My opinions are my own.
