If I could name one of makeups biggest trends from the last few years, it would be highlighter. Everyone wants to glow to the gods – and makeup company’s have heard their call. So here is a little review of the newest addition from Cover FX.
I will admit I have only owned one highlighter the last few years, the Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder. If your someone who likes a very natural highlight that isn’t glittery or too much then I highly recommend this one and it will last you forever.
But ever since I picked up the Cover FX custom enhancer drops I have been wanting a stronger highlight. I was in Ulta with my mom over Thanksgiving weekend when I spotted this highlighting palette from Cover FX. It was new and I loved the range of shades.
The Cover FX Perfect Highlighting Palette is currently only available at Ulta and retails for $39 (but is currently on sale!). There are six shades: Blossom (soft pink), Prism (holographic), Rose Gold (rosy gold), Golden Peach (peachy pink), Celestial (glistening pearl), and Gilded (warm bronze).
The packaging is gorgeous and sturdy. The gold sleek front is beautiful, it has a strong latch, and includes a large mirror. The size and sturdiness of the palette makes it perfect to travel with.
I believe this palette could work for a solid range of skin tones. The powders themselves are very soft and blendable with very little kick up. These are a beautiful highlight just on their own or layered over one another. They are not glittery but are a smooth shimmer that doesn’t look textured on the skin. I’ve been wearing them layered over the Cover FX Custom Enhancer drops for an added oompf and they are stunning. Glowing to the Gods for sure.
Swatched top to bottom are: Blossom, Prism, Rose Gold, Golden Peach, Celestial, and Gilded.
Overall this is a great palette for someone who wants to add highlighters to their collection. It has a great range of shades to help you complete any look, its easy to travel with and budget friendly. These smooth and silky powders add the perfect amount highlight.
