Cover Fx Custom Enhancer Drops Review + Swatches

The Cover Fx Custom Enhancer Drops were an items that I've been eyeing for quite some time. But with 9 different colours to choose from, choosing just one proved to be quite the task, specially at $52 a piece. So when Cover Fx released a mini 4-piece set for the holidays, this was the perfect time to try them out.

Custom Enhancer Drops are a liquid highlighter. They can be used on the face as a regular highlighter, mixed in with your foundation to give you entire face a dewy look or applied to the body, either directly or mixed with your favourite lotion. You can also use them on your eyes or lips to add a little sparkle. All you have to do is use your imagination.

Just like their full-size counter parts, these liquid highlighters are housed in a glass bottle with a dropper, making it easier for you to dispense the desired amount.

The liquid formula is amazing, however can be a little tricky if you're not used to it as it does dry quickly. When used as a highlighter, it's best applied with a brush, or a damp sponge. You can also use your fingers if you want it to stand out more. Whichever application method you prefer, the effect is buildable.

This mini set includes Celestial, Halo, Moonlight and Rose Gold. While these shades are universally flattering, the lighter shades work great during Winter months, or those of a lighter complexion, meanwhile the darker shades are perfect for Summer.

L to R: Celestial, Halo, Moonlight, Rose Gold

Of the four, I found that Halo seemed to be a little more on the thin/runny side, but not by much.

Celestial is my current favourite. It's a soft pink that blends nicely with my skin tone.

Halo is best described as a white base with a blue iridescent sheen to it. The website calls is holographic, but not quite.

Moonlight is a medium gold with brown undertones. This worked the least for me, but I blame that on the current lack of a tan.

Rose Gold is a rosey copper. While the colour is gorgeous, I had hopped it would be a little less copper. I think mixed with Celestial, and this colour would be perfect.

If I had to buy one of these full-size, it would be Celestial. I've recently noticed Blossom, which looks like it would be an amazing colour as well!
