Review – Sheercover

I have a dirty little secret to tell you, I love shopping channels. I will quite happily waste an hour flicking through them looking at all the amazing things you can buy. I haven’t bought anything from them, well I *may* have bought some jewellery but that’s it!

One of the products I am obsessed with is the Sheercover makeup. I have quite bad skin and have spent years trying to find products to give me a nice looking complexion. I watch the before and after shoots and think to myself does it really work? Is it that good?

If you haven’t seen that adverts, then I will give you a quick explanation of Sheercover. It’s a mineral powder foundation that promises flawless coverage. It lasts all day. Contains SPF 15 and will cover all flaws.

Watch this video and tell me you don’t want to try it!

I was sent an Introductory Kit which includes 2 x Mineral Foundation in two shades (1.5g each) , Duo Concealer in two shades (1.5g) , Extra-Length Mascara (4ml) , Base Perfector (15m) plus 4 free gifts Sheer Cover Studio Foundation Brush, Sheer Cover Concealer Brush , Sheer Colour® Compact , Sheer Cover Vanity Case (Black) and the Sheer Cover® Tips & Tricks DVD and Application Tips & Tricks Guide.

I have tried other mineral foundations and they just don’t give any coverage so I was really excited to give this a try and see if it really works.

I have to say I was quite impressed with Sheercover, it gave really good coverage. Was it flawless? No but it was still good. I think I need to layer it a bit more to increase the coverage.
I put the base perfector on first which smoothes the skin. I them used a little of the concealer on the bags under my eyes and a few spots; it goes on really smoothly and covers well.  You then have to mix the perfect shade for you, this was a little fiddly and I would have liked an extra pot to do this in rather than the lid of one of the foundation pots. I found that I would the perfect shade but once I had finished and put it all away I would have to start again the next time.

The powder when on nicely and was really lightweight, it didn’t feel like I was wearing any makeup at all. It did last all day and I could see a difference but it was subtle it didn’t look like I was wearing makeup which I really liked.

I also love the Mulberry lip-gloss that comes in the compact; I would quite happily by a full size one of those.

The only thing that puts me off is the cost, the Introductory Kit is £29.99, then they send you a new supply of Sheercover every 90 days and that costs you £19.99 per month. You can cancel at anytime and there is no minim order. You can try it for 60 days and get a full refund if it’s not for you.

Would I buy it? Yes, if I could just buy it and not sign up for the continuous orders.

You can purchase Sheercover from their site

  1. I've always been tempted to buy this, but like you have been put off by the payment Plan. Do you know how Sheer Cover compares to the Mineral I.D makeup?
