Cover FX Gripping Primer

Cover FX do many things well and one of my favourite things is their range of primers.

I’ve maintained for as long as I can remember that it’s a crime not to prime. 

Using the right primer for your skin helps to create an excellent base for our makeup, allowing it to work better with your skin, allowing your makeup to last longer and ultimately, leaving you looking more radiant for longer.

Cover FX have recently not only expanded its selection of primers but revamped the line with fresh, sleek new packaging. 

The new collection includes their cult-favorite Mattifying and Blurring formulas with a couple of new additions in the form of one called Water Cloud, one named Gripping and another Dewy Skin.

They have literally created a range of primer for every skin type and need possible which is great because different people require different elements and ingredients from their primers.

One thing they do have in common however is that all of the formulas are clinically tested, vegan, cruelty-free and free of Parabens, Gluten, Mineral Oil, Fragrance, Talc, Alkyl Sulfates and Phthalates.

I opted to try the new Gripping Primer on account of its ability to provide next level grip for makeup, firming and its anti-ageing properties.

Despite being designed for normal to dry skin I decided to give it a go and I was thoroughly impressed.

Cover FX’s Gripping Primer features a  jelly like texture and contains a host of vitamins, minerals and amino acids from algae extracts which work to firm up your skin, target fine lines and prevent sagging for an even complexion while an ocean derived complex gets to work on fine lines and improves skin clarity.

Lightweight in texture the jelly becomes more like a serum when dispensed and distributed ono your skin, disappearing almost instantly.


It visibly creates a dewy, glass-like effect on the skin to boost radiance and creates an immediately brighter complexion.

Fragrance and colour free it disappears into your skin leaving it as a silky smooth canvas for your make up, but unlike many other primers this one really does grip onto your makeup.

That foundation really aint budging when applied and I found that I barely required any top up’s or powder checks throughout the day.

It’s an impressive piece of equipment and has left me dying to try the rest of the range to see what they have to offer!

Cover FX’s range of primers including the Gripper Primer are available now from Feelunique and costs £30.
