As you know, Cover FX is one of my favorite cruelty-free beauty brands, offering foundations in all global shades of beauty. Their products are cruelty free and vegan. They’re also free of the inflammatory five – fragrance (what normally causes me to break out), talc, mineral oil, gluten and parabens.

Above I swatched the Cover FX Cream Concealer in N-Xtra Light, Perfect Pencil in N-Xtra Light and Blemish Treatment Concealer in N-Xtra Light. You can see that the Cover FX Perfect Pencil is the lightest of the three, followed by the Blemish Stick, and the cream concealer is the darkest.

First, let me tell you more about the Cover FX Perfect Pencil. Aside from being available in 10 shades, this pencil is waterproof. It’s got a fine point for precise application. Cover FX is famous for their high pigment loaded products, so it should be no surprise that this pencil has great pigmentation too. You don’t ever have to sharpen it as it’s a twist up pencil. To reshape the pencil, Cover FX recommends twisting it up a bit and then rolling the edge against a clean, flat surface.
Here’s my bare face, so you can see what I have to work with. I have rosacea, though my redness has been reduced from my current skincare regime. I’ve got hyperpigmentation in places, some blemishes and a cherry angioma.
1. Conceal redness.
Now, I typically have a lot of redness from rosacea, so I wouldn’t use the Cover FX Perfect Pencil to conceal my entire face, but I would use it for the cherry angioma that I have on my forehead. You can use the Perfect Pencil before or after your foundation for precise concealing.
2. Conceal blemishes or pigmentation spots.
The Cover FX Perfect Pencil works well to conceal hyperpigmentation or blemishes around the face. That spot on my right cheek (left in the photo), is a different texture than the rest of my face, so I sometimes find it hard to conceal.
3. Brighten the eyes.
You can see in the full face shot above that the eye on the left side of the photo (my right side of the face), has the Cover FX Perfect Pencil on the waterline and it looks more open and awake. This helps to brighten the eyes.
4. Define the brows.
Use the Cover FX Perfect Pencil above and below the brows to clean up the shape and give you an instant brow lift.
5. Reverse line your lips.
Line the outside of your lips with the Cover FX Perfect Pencil to prep for lipstick and prevent feathering. You can also use the Perfect Pencil to have a matte highlight at the cupid’s bow, which makes your lips look larger.
6. Define winged liner.
Apply the Cover FX Perfect Pencil under your winged liner to define it or clean up any mistakes.
7. Erase lipliner or lipstick mistakes.
If you accidentally take your lipliner or lipstick too high, use the cruelty-free Cover FX Perfect Pencil to clean up the line. You can also contour the lips with the Perfect Pencil.
I didn’t retouch the photo above the way I normally would so that you could see how well the Cover FX Perfect Pencil worked with my Cover FX N0 foundation.
This really is the Perfect Pencil to toss into your makeup bag and keep with you during the day. It can handle just about anything you throw at it. The high pigment load makes it ideal for spot concealing and just blending out the edge with you finger tip. It really lives up to its name.
