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!!!Fotor_146810233190463What 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. Fotor_146810243781630Formula 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 camera does this no justice, it’s gorgeous in person.
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,
