Veil Cover Cream

Happy Saturday!
I had a nice surprise this morning when this landed on my doorstep:

Its the Veil Cover Cream sample I got for free by filling out a survey a while back. I was expecting a tiny sachet of a "natural" too dark for me shade but instead I was amazed by the sample kit that arrived, including a massive 20 shades along with a little pot of Transluscent setting powder!

Mine was the light/medium kit but it seems more like a general mix of all the shades as some are far too dark to be considered medium. After looking through the website, they do have 40 shades available.

According to the website, it can be used to cover up birthmarks, Vitiligo, Rosacea, Acne, Scars, Veins, Dark circles, Bruising, Age Spots and Tattoos.

I still didn't find an exact shade match for my skin, but there are other shades available so I think there would be one to suit me better. I had to blend some colours together to make look right on me, and even though it looked OK on camera after blending, it looked like a had some kind of weird bruise on my hand in the daylight.
Swatches of White, Natural, Suede & Medium

Blended in
The coverage is very heavy and thick, as you would expect for this kind of product. You should use it on clean, dry skin so moisturise at night, not in the morning especially if using this on the face. You use this as you would a concealer, then use the powder to set it and then a water-based foundation over the top.
This product would be amazing for someone who would like to disguise a difference in skin tone on their body / face.

Personally, I wouldn't like to use this on my face every day, I would give my skin time to breathe between uses but that is because of how my skin behaves rather than because of the product.

A little goes a very long way so even though I have swatched and played around with these a lot, I still have loads left.

Unfortunately, because of the fact I would need to buy 2 or 3 different shades, the full size pots are wayyy out of my price range, as a 19g will set you back £23 (for 3, that's £69! Ouch!)  and the Translucent Finishing Powder is £24.50 but there is a more affordable alternative, in the form of kits you can buy, which are absolutely ideal for make up artists aswell.

A Demonstration Kit  costs £40.64 , A Tattoo Camouflage Kit in  light to medium or medium to dark costs £26.50 and a Cover Cream Sample Kit (which is what I have) which is available in light/medium and medium/dark costs £6.50 . Now that's more like it! Visit for more info!

DISCLAIMER: This was a free sample & I have not been paid or otherwise rewarded for this post.

    Hello there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin
    for my comment form? I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having problems finding one?
    Thanks a lot!
