Cover FX Aurora is a slightly cool-toned, very light lavender with a sparkle finish. It is a permanent highlighter that retails for $44.00 and contains 0.5 oz.
Cover FX Aurora Glitter Drops ($44.00 for 0.50 oz.) is a cooler, pinky-gray base that shifted from silver to pink opal. It had a sheerer liquid base that felt watery and thin, but it spread exceptionally well over bare skin and over foundation with even distribution of the glittery bits and bobs. I preferred to put a droplet on the back of my hand, then used my finger to pat the product onto my cheekbones and lightly blend and spread as needed. The glitters were finer, which helped them adhere more evenly to my skin and seemed to ensure that it looked reflective and sparkly but not gritty or dirt-like when the light wasn't reflecting off of them. It had buildable coverage from semi-sheer to mostly opaque (two to three layers). This shade wore well for nine hours as a cheek highlighter with a few sparkles that had strayed over time.
