Cover FX Natural FX vs. GOSH Natural Touch - battle of the foundations part 2!

Last week's post was very light coverage foundations (if you missed it you can find it here) so this week I decided to try a couple that had a bit more coverage and moisture!

Natural FX Water Based Foundation SPF 15 - 30ml - I liked the idea of a moisturizing foundation that was water based so I tried the lightest colour in my shade range - E10.  I was a little worried because it seemed kind of pink when I first squeezed it out of the tube but it blended perfectly into my skin. It has more of a medium coverage so it was perfect for hiding the redness around my nose, I didn't even have to apply a concealer there like I normally would! Because it's a heavier coverage than I would normally wear I was concerned that it would feel heavy on my skin and give me the "foundation" feeling of which I am not a fan but not to worry, it's not the lightest thing I have ever felt on my skin but it was by no means uncomfortable.


GOSH Natural Touch Foundation - 30 ml - is also a natural finish, moisturizing foundation which I tried in the lightest shade of 32 Pearl.  The colour is the tiniest bit too yellow for my skin which isn't glaringly obvious to anyone but me I expect! Again the coverage is heavier than what I'm used to but it feels very weightless on my skin.  It also covers well and I didn't need to use an extra concealer. The other thing I worried about with a heavier foundation was that it would settle into pores and lines but I didn't have this problem with either one of them which I'm attributing to the moisturizing formula!

This is a hard choice but I'm going to go with Cover FX - only because the colour was perfect while the GOSH was just slightly off.  As far as feel and quality, I would have no issue recommending either one of them so pick the one with the colour that is the closest match for you!

Tune in next Monday for the next battle, this time between Lancôme Teint Idole Fresh Wear and Lise Watier Teint Parfait 12 HRS Glam!

Has anyone else used the Cover FX and the GOSH, and were you able to choose?

  1. Loving these "battles" Lisamarie - keep them coming!

  2. I haven't tried either, but I think I'd probs go with the Gosh from the review :) I have trouble finding yellow toned foundations, everything always looked dirty or pink on me. :(

  3. Love these battles as well, very enlightening even though I haven't yet tried either. Thanks Lisamarie!
