This Cover Fx Highlight Is Made For Unicorn Vibes

by Rachel Nussbaum

Shimmery lavender might not seem like the obvious choice for a highlight shade, but man, unicorn highlights aren't going anywhere. The latest take on holographic is an even cooler spin on the trend, with droplets of blue fully unthroning natural hues for that lit-from-within look. More like lit from above, really — the glow of unicorns hanging out in a better place. Cover FX's new "Halo" Custom Enhancer Drops were made for the holographic trend, and combined with one of the most high impact formulas on the market, they're not messing around.

According to Allure, three new shades of Cover FX's Custom Enhancer Drops are launching in a few months: Halo, a holographic lilac, Blossom, a pearlescent pink, and Rose Gold, a so-stated rose gold. The new additions are no-brainers, entirely on trend with the unicorn movement paved by ABH's Moonchild, MILK's Holographic Stick, Kat Von D's Alchemist Palette, and Makeup Geek's Moon Phase (honorable, other category mention: Too Faced's Unicorn Tears lipstick). But LEST YOU THINK this trend's run its course, Cover FX's new iteration is a cool spin.

Fans of Cover Fx's Custom Enhancer Drops know the deal, but for those who haven't dabbled, the fluid highlighter is like metal in a jar. Packs-a-punch and intensely metallic, there are more realistic-leaning colors like Sunlight, a warm copper, and Candlelight, a golden bronze, but of the fluid's six shades, "glistening pearl" Celestial is a standout. They've got robo-beauty down.

Gleaming blue-lavender was the obvious choice, given the internet freak outs about unicorn-inspired hues. Blossom is just as on trend, a milky pastel that's like Glossier pink gone into the night. Rose Gold is the wild card that doesn't have a ton of compatriots, although Celestial could be a closest relative.

The shade is like a spotlight in a bottle, so big hopes for the kind of light Rose Gold will bring. Mythical-looking and fantastic, but the need for these is 100 percent real.
