Cover FX Custom ENhancer Drops Review and swatches of all shades 💎💎
Hello everyone. It’s been a while since I posted something this long (but mainly because of photos).
I’ve had this vault for a while and I think its time to show off this beauty.
I started off with 2 individual bottles in shades Celestial and Blossom, and when I saw the vault I jumped on it. I don’t mind having backups of my favourite shades.
I think CoverFX was the one who put liquid highlighters on trend, and they probably make the best quality highlighters too. Good quality comes with a high price tag though. But I think these are worth the price. I have not yet found a better liquid highlighter, with this many shades. Some other brand’s individual liquid highlighters are good as well (namely Tomford, Marc Jacobs, Nars), but they don’t come in many shades and sometimes aren’t permanent. I think this liquid highlighter range is the best in the market yet.
Here’s what the brand has to say about it : Ultra-concentrated illuminating and bronzing drops that allow you to customize your ideal glow with a liquid metal or sunkissed finish.
What it Does:
Available in seven illuminating shades, including: Halo, Blossom, Rose Gold, Celestial, Moonlight, Sunlight and Candlelight.
These customizable drops can be used to create a buildable highlight. Use them alone for a light reflective strobing, or add them to your favorite liquid foundation or skincare product for an all-over glow. Formulated with a high concentration of ultra-refined pearls, the seven illuminating drops produce a liquid metal finish. The more drops you use, the more luminosity you’ll get, allowing you to customize your glow.
- Shake well before use.
- For an intense strobing or bronzing effect, use alone and apply with your fingertips or favorite beauty tool.
- For an all-over glow, add them to your favorite liquid foundation or skincare product.
- The more drops you use, the more luminosity or bronze you’ll get.
I mix these with my foundation to add luminosity and to give more shimmer to some of my matte foundations. It makes my skin look less thick and more natural, just basically looking more healthy. The different shades give off different hue/tint for example when I want my foundation to be a bit brighter I will use Halo or Celestial, or when I want to look more tan, I use Sunlight and Candlelight.
The formula is excellent. Not too thick and not too runny. Just perfectly in between. It also lasts ALL DAY. Seriously I put these on before I go to work and sometimes my foundation faded but these do not! Like I can still see traces of this highlighter even when my foundation has wiped away throughout the day.
OK let’s start off shall we?
Caution: This post is stacked with so many photos so it might take a while to load. I apologize for that. But I believe pictures say a thousand worlds!
First off is Halo (holographic, multi-dimensional ). This shade is less natural than other shades, but is quite useful when I want to add extra brightness to a dull foundation or something that’s too dark for me.
It’s super holographic if you look at the drop.
But once blended, it’s not that hard to use!
Next, Moonlight (shimmering beige )
This is one of the most natural shades in my opinion. I think it will work with most skintones. Pale gals can use it to add warmth, and other skintones can use it to give shine to their skin.
I use this shade when I’m out of ideas haha.
See? Very beautiful on the skin.
Third, Celestial ( glistening pearl)
Celestial is my first shade I ever purchased. At that time I wanted something that brightens up my face, as I was quite pale at the time. This shade will make your skin look brighter, when mixed with foundation.
However, it is too whitish for medium-dark skintones. I think only pale-light skinned girls can use this shade.
And the drop on my hand.
And the swatches! I know it looks pretty whitish, but once blended with light foundation, the whiteness is not that obvious.
Next, Blossom (soft, pearlescent pink)
This was my second purchase. I wanted something slightly pink, and this was the answer.
But don’t worry, its not pink pink. It’s more of a healthy flushed glow.
This shade gives me that healthy pink glow on my cheeks. I sometimes dab it on my cheekbones as well.
Such a pretty glow right?
Rosegold (warm, pearlescent pink bronze )
Rosegold is like a combination of sunlight and blossom. Bronze but slightly pink. Please scroll down for swatches below.
Candlelight (shimmering golden bronze )
This shade is darkest out of all the shades. It screams bronze! To be honest, it’s too dark for my skin. But this would be perfect for medium-dark skintones!
Sunlight (soft, glowing gold).
Sunlight is the shade that I use for a warm tanned look. I mix this with foundation that are too light to make them look more natural. The description says its gold, but its not gold gold. It’s more of a golden bronze.
Here’s a photo of the Sunlight drop. For blended swatches, continue below.
And that’s the lid of the vault. It’s in the shade of a water drop.
Next, I will do swatches of them in comparison to similar shades.
First up are Halo, Celestial, and Moonlight.
As you can see here Halo has a blue/whitish shift.
Here’s Moonlight and Celestial:
Candlelight and Sunlight:
And Blossom and Rosegold:
You can see the pink shimmers here in Blossom.
That’s it guys, hope you find this blog useful!
