Remember those gorgeous liquid highlights that everyone was talking about? Well, Cover FX created three Custom Enhancer Drop shades, in additon to the six bronze and highlight colors they already had, and these new ones are a bit different. One of them is a holographic color that you just need to see. It's a gorgeous pearly-white-meets-blue hue that looks hard to wear, but I promise it's not. It's endlessly customizable, and there are countless ways to wear Cover FX's "Halo" Custom Enhancer Drops.
Although the three Custom Enhancer Drops don't officially come out until Mar. 3, I got the chance to try them out a few weeks early. All three of the colors — Halo, Rose Gold, and Blossom — are absolutely gorgeous. Halo is definitely the stand out though. It's a holographic blue mets white shade that can be a little bit intimidating if you don't know what to do with it. That's why I tested it out, so you can see all the makeup possibilities before you buy.
With a little bit of help from Cover FX's Global Ambassador and Makeup Artist Derek Selby, I tried out seven different ways to wear the Halo Custom Enhancer Drops. While some of them aren't exactly your everyday look, others are totally wearable no matter the occasion.
Here's a look at the three new products swatched out — Halo is the shade on the bottom, in the middle is Blossom, and on top is Rose Gold.
1. Cheek Bones
This is technically the way it was meant to be worn. It also happens to be my favorite way. I was afraid that it would look too blue on my skin, but it actually looks pretty natural when blended with a sponge.
2. Ombre Lip
When I heard all of Selby's tips, this was the one I was most intimidated by. Once I put it on, I was a believer. Halo looks great on top of a nude lip, bold lip, and everything in between.
3. Halo Liner
The liner was actually easier to do than your typical winged liner. Halo glided on super easily. I would recommend putting it on top of a black liner though, since it smudged a bit when it was on its own.
4. Custom Highlighter
If there's anything more gorgeous than Halo on the cheeks, it's Halo paired with Rose Gold. This made the somewhat unconventional highlight even more wearable.
5. Inner Corner Shine
I'm not a huge fan of inner corner highlight in general, but I got a lot of compliments when I wore this one out. I can't say that it's my new everyday look, although I will be wearing it out on the weekends from time to time.
This one took some work. If you're looking to try this out, make sure you're wearing a primer and that you set the drops with a powder. When done right, this is the perfect way to get the "wet" eye trend.
7. Brow Bone Highlight
This one was my least favorite of all the options. I think it would look great, if you had a smokey eye or were looking for a little drama. For everyday wear, I'd skip it though.
All in all, this product is definitely worth the money. Whether you're willing to branch out and try different trends or just looking for a great way to add some shimmer to your cheeks, you really can't go wrong with Halo.
