I want to start off by saying thank-you to everyone who listened to the podcast hosted by Cat at Mylipaddiction.com and for commenting on twitter, our blogs, google + and so on! You are all super supportive and I’m really happy you enjoyed it! If you haven’t heard it yet click here.
As a treat to myself for doing the podcast I got Cover FX’s new Custom Enhancer Drops. Cat and I actually went to Sephora to swatch them but they had not been released in store at that time. I was impatient and decided to order it online.
I’ve only tried this once so below are my first impressions. As of right now I’m in love, love, love, love….yes, I like it that much!!!What it Does: “Easily add a highlighting, strobing, or bronzing effect to any liquid cosmetic or skincare product”
Cost: $52.00 CAD! OMG! Super expensive! However, one drop was enough to highlight both cheekbones. It’s a highly concentrated .5 oz bottle so I can imagine it lasting a long time.
This comes in six shades, 4 highlighters and 2 bronzers to compliment a variety of skin tones. I have the highlight shade moonlight which is a pretty shimmery beige.
Packaging: I’m not the biggest fan of the eye dropper. I wish it was a pump because I always accidentally touch the dropper part and then get it everywhere. Formula and Application: This feels very silky. The fluid is really light and blends easily on the skin without streaking. I used my fingers to dab and then blend this onto my cheekbones. It’s also waterproof! I needed to use a few pumps of soap to get it off the back of my hand! Good to know that my highlight will stay in place.
My Thoughts: This highlight is very intense so if you like a strong highlight this is definitely for you! I will be reaching for this on special occasions but I don’t think I could pull it off for everyday. I like the colour and how bright my face looks. Whenever I catch myself in the mirror I am so impressed with how nice it looks. It’s been about 7 hours since I put this on and it’s still going strong. It’s also budge-proof, I’ve rubbed my face a few times and it hasn’t transferred to my hands and I don’t see specks of shimmer anywhere but where I put the product. I’m a bit intimidated to mix this with my foundation just yet because I’m afraid I’ll just look too shiny but as I get more comfortable using it, I may give it a try.I’m interested in trying the bronzer shades (I’m eyeing sunkissed as I type this).
I want to know what you think of these new custom drops? Do you have a favourite? Would you get one?
Lots of love,
