Medium-Deep

CoverFX Medium-Deep The Perfect Light Highlighting Palette ($42.00 for 0.38 oz.) includes two powder highlighters and two cream highlighters housed in a cardboard palette. The cream formula is supposed to have a “dewy, radiant glow,” while the powder highlighters have a “silky, luminous finish.” The tones are definitely warm and run slightly redder overall, as three of the four shades have more of a brown/red mix of undertones than yellow. The cream highlighters could have worn longer, but if you like a dewy, subtle sheen, the formula might be up your alley. Both of the powder highlighters can be purchased individually, but should you prefer them in a palette, the colors are consistent but the quality is better in the individual versions for me.

Rose Gold

Cover FX Rose Gold Custom Enhancer Drops ($42.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is medium-dark golden copper with warm, reddish undertones and a metallic sheen. The finish was more metallic on this shade compared to the other two recently added shades but more in line with the original, core set of shades.

The Custom Enhancer Drops formula is supposed to a “buildable highlight” that can be used alone (“even on top of powder”) or mixed in with base products (like foundation, primer, or moisturizer). For a more extensive overview of how I’ve used the formula in different ways, check out my original reviews here. The formula tends to be buildable but plenty pigmented, and I find that so much of how it applies and whether it looks intense or subdued is in the application (more so than the average product).

The texture of the product was light-medium in thickness–not really thin nor was it thick–and it felt more like the core range (and not like the other recently added shades). It was smooth, lightweight on the skin, and easily spread across the skin, whether over base products (including powder) or mixed in with another cream or liquid product. When I tried it as a highlighter on my cheeks, it gave my skin a luminous glow that was shiny but not sparkly or glittery. It had medium, buildable coverage, though it was very easy to sheer it out or build it up, depending on what I used to apply it. On my skin, the highlighter lasted for ten hours.

Blossom

Cover FX Blossom Custom Enhancer Drops ($42.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a light-medium rose gold with warm, coppery undertones and a pearly sheen. The shimmer seemed slightly finer than the original shades launched in the formula, though when applied more heavily, it yielded a more metallic sheen on the skin–it just didn’t emphasize pores at all.

The Custom Enhancer Drops formula is supposed to a “buildable highlight” that can be used alone (“even on top of powder”) or mixed in with base products (like foundation, primer, or moisturizer). For a more extensive overview of how I’ve used the formula in different ways, check out my original reviews here. The formula tends to be buildable but plenty pigmented, and I find that so much of how it applies and whether it looks intense or subdued is in the application (more so than the average product).

The consistency was lightweight, thin without being watery (though thinner than past shades), and spread well across the skin without disturbing base products (as well as worked just fine over my bare skin or mixed with base products). The pigmentation varied from semi-sheer to opaque, depending on application method and how much product one used. I didn’t feel like I had to apply a ton to use it as a standalone highlighter nor did I have to be really careful about how much I mixed in with a base product. As a cheek highlighter, it wore well for almost nine hours on me.

Halo

Cover FX Halo Custom Enhancer Drops ($42.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a very light, almost translucent white, with iridescent, bluish-violet pearl. It seemed less holographic as it was iridescent and had a subtle shift.

The Custom Enhancer Drops formula is supposed to a “buildable highlight” that can be used alone (“even on top of powder”) or mixed in with base products (like foundation, primer, or moisturizer). For a more extensive overview of how I’ve used the formula in different ways, check out my original reviews here. The formula tends to be buildable but plenty pigmented, and I find that so much of how it applies and whether it looks intense or subdued is in the application (more so than the average product).

Halo had a thinner, more watery texture with a lot less shimmer–and finer shimmer at that–compared to other illuminating shades in the range, so I think it would be more versatile and easier to control for most compared to other shades. It was also less pigmented and took more product to build up to full coverage. It never emphasized my skin’s texture, though, even at opaque coverage. It spread well along the tops of my cheek bones as a standalone highlighter, and there was a noticeable, icy shift as I turned my head. Mixed in with foundation, there was a subtle luminosity but not tons of visible shimmer, and it seemed to cancel out some of the warmth of my foundation. I did notice, however, that this shade did not play as well over liquid or powder makeup, as it seemed to take longer to dry and had a tendency to lift base product, which other shades have not done. As a highlighter, it lasted for nine hours on me.
