Quite a few months back, I was invited to the Sephora Chadstone opening where some fellow bloggers got to enter the store a little earlier than the general public, to do some shopping before everything was sold out. To my advantage, the Cover Fx Custom Enhancer Drops in Moonlight were fully stocked. So I had to try them for myself and see what all the crazy fuss was about.
Since I wrote this post, I’ve also picked up the shade ‘blossom’ which is equally as stunning.
They kinda sat in my makeup bag for a while cause I was unsure how to use them, how to apply them and they kind intimated me. But one day I was just playing with makeup when I decided to experiment with them. The first time I used them I was kind of ‘eh’ about them, to be honest. They just looked like a chunky line on my cheek. So back in the makeup bag they went. Then I attempted them again with a damp Real Technique Sponge and my index finger.
What I find the best thing to do is either option 1; apply under highlight on the high points of your face i.e. cupids bow, cheekbones and then drop a tiny amount of the drops on the area and blend out with your beauty sponge then your finger. I find using the beauty sponge alone doesn’t get it all blended into the skin, but the warmth from your finger really helps it melt in there.
Or option 2; is mixing a little bit of the drops into your foundation and applying it all over for a gorgeous glow. Just bare in mind, use the smallest amount because otherwise you’ll resemble the tin man and possibly be magpie food.
And just an FYI – all these photos here are Facetune-free.
So what do you think about the drops?
