Thank me later.
It’s official, Cover FX’s Glitter Drops are the queens of all highlighters. As I mentioned in my previous post, I was going to test these bad boys out and now you can see the results for yourself.
If you haven’t heard already, Cover FX are dropping new highlighters in February, including the Glitter Drops range (which did get realised earlier in January but only online at Cult Beauty). I was lucky enough to try them out beforehand and all I can say are four words: I am blown away.
Firstly, what I love about the Glitter Drops range is that it is an oil-like highlighter, so it is very light and easily able to blend. The clue is also in the name as its very glittery, which emphasises the glow massively. The range comes in three shades, as explained in my previous post too: Aurora (pink), Mirage (gold) and Lunar (multi-coloured). In the photos, I used the shade Aurora with a full face of makeup and you can see how I was instantly, and effortlessly, glowing in the light. Also, as its a pink shade, it complemented my pink eyeshadow and metallic lipstick perfectly, leaving me speechless at how much of an impact a matching highlighter makes!
To apply the highlighter, I squeezed the smallest drop onto the back of my hand and used my finger to dab it onto my cheekbones, nose and a small amount on my forehead (the areas that shine the most); I then blended it all in with my finger. The great thing about this highlighter is that I didn’t even use one-third of that tiny drop, so I know the bottle is going to last me a lifetime too.
Just in case you are wondering, I am someone who prefers not to use brushes, hence why I blend with my finger as I find it works better with my dry skin. This whole look was in fact achieved by dabbing and blending with my finger or a makeup sponge – even the eyeshadow.
Overall, I am so amazed with the results and felt as bright as a disco ball! There is no doubt that Cover FX are definitely winning the highlighter game.
