You would have to have been living under a rock for the past few months, not to have heard about Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops. This product has been trending throughout the beauty world – with beauty gurus across the globe falling over themselves to get their hands on samples. When they first appeared, I have to admit being a little unsure about them. The payoff was so intense I was nervous to give them a try. After all, a touch too heavy a hand on application and your highlight might actually be visible from the Space station!
However, that changed, when Cover FX added to its initial colourway selection. Included in the 3 new colours was a holographic one – Halo. Now, as much as I love the ongoing highlighting trend, I simply cannot resist a bit of holo! There’s something about a pretty unicorn sparkle that sets my girly heart aflutter. So I took the plunge.
Let me start off by saying that this product is VERY intense. It needs the lightest of touches for application. You might want to apply with a Beauty Blender sponge and sheer it in with your foundation to help give a ‘your skin but better’ finish, or sheer out the colour on the tops of your cheekbones. I chose to use my fingertips – as I felt it gave me a greater degree of control over the finish. The product itself feels slightly oily to the touch – probably because of the high concentration of Dimethicone – and a little goes a very very long way.
Initially using Halo made me nervous, because I typically opt for more peach toned, golden shimmers in a highlight because of my skin tone, and this is a little more cool toned. But I shouldn’t have been. Depending on the lighting you’re in, this product can shift between pulling more blue, purple, or pink. And from far away, Halo looks even more amazing – giving a pretty, shimmery sheen to the skin.
I find that in general liquid highlighters tend to look more natural on the skin than the powder variety and that they wear fairly well. This didn’t disappoint. Wear time on this product is impressive. It still looked great after a few hours.
All in all, this product is something I would recommend particularly for evenings out. It looks incredibly under evening lighting and because of the way it changes in different lighting conditions. I can also see Halo working for the widest possible range of skin tones – be they super fair or much deeper.
So if you are unsure whether to take the plunge and splurge on this product, I would say DO IT! It really is quite a unique highlighter – one that adds a stunning finish to the skin.
