I really love the trend to have bold highlight in makeup, and I hope it never ends! Now that my skin is really clearing up from its acne, I’ve been enjoying adding various amounts of shimmer to my makeup looks. I recently received a sample of the Cover FX Enhancer Drops, and I couldn’t wait to see how it would work as a highlighter. This product is available at Sephora and similar retailers for $42.
First, I’ll admit that I was a little intimidated. Judging by the container, I was afraid that this highlighter would be a bit too warm for my skin because my skin is very cool-toned. While I’ll admit that it’s not the perfect shade for me, I was very pleasantly surprised at how versatile the product was. A teeny teeny teeny tiny drop was all that I needed for a sun-kissed little shimmery highlight. At this rate, my little sample bottle might last a whole year or more. If you’re giving this one a try, I highly recommend using the smallest amount possible and building it up because it’s easy to overdo this one and look a bit theatrical.
Not all highlighters have the same finish or final look, and this one is rather metallic-looking, which is something that was new for me. I really liked it though. The result is that this product offers a very bold look as opposed to a subtle highlight. I think this is a perfect choice for women of color who might struggle to find a highlight that really pops. I think this one would work really well for them.
