Hello charming ladies! Wink

It’s impossible to get enough of highlighters, right? Today I want to tell you about one more highlighter from my collection, which is Cover FX Perfect Light Highlighting Powder.

Cover FX is a relatively young American cosmetics brand, which has become famous mostly because of their facial makeup products. Multi-tasking Custom Enhancer Drops, liquid highlighters, loose powders and many more.

The design of the Cover FX cosmetics is stylish and minimal. I have a mini of this highlighter, but it looks similar to the big version, and the difference is only in the size of the compacts.

A paunchy compact has a mirrored plastic surface that willingly collects all the fingerprints. The product is absolutely camera-unfriendly.

The top lid opens up with more than 180 degrees and closes with a click. Inside you’ll find a small mirror.

Size - 3g (mini)

8g (full size)

Made in the USA

Expiration dates - within 12 months of opening.

Unfortunately my highlighter arrived smashed. I pressed it back, that’s why I’ll decried its texture only of this pressed condition.

The highlighter is really soft and gentle by touch. It won’t work good with stiff and dense brushes, because it’ll crumble and fall out a lot.

The pigmentation is fine, yet it’s still difficult to overdo it, since the product has a sheer base. It won’t be a problem to build-up the coverage, but be careful, since a lot of the product can accentuate skin texture.

There are only three shades available to choose from - Moonlight, Sunlight and Candlelight. I have the fairest one.

It’s a really gentle champagne shade of cool undertones. But not so cool to be frosted or silver.

A comparison with my other different shade- and texture-wise highlighters:

From the left to the right:

  • Estrade Illuminique #304;

  • Cover FX Perfect Light Highlighting Powder "Moonlight";

  • Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter "Vanilla Quartz";

  • Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle "Hu$tla Baby".


The Cover FX highlighter shows a pretty delicate glow, which will fit my everyday makeup well.

Here the highlighter is applied over my cheekbones, brow bones and inner corners of the eyes.

The lasting power is fantastic. It stays on until the moment I remove it. No fading or color fall out during wear. Cover FX Perfect Light Highlighting Powder is an excellent highlighter which will have its prideful place in my collection. Delicate glow, alluring shade and absolutely fuss-free application and performance. If you’re looking for something like this for your skin glow, then I can thoroughly recommend this product.

Price - $34 for the full sized compact and $10 for the mini.

Thanks for reading my post! Happy shopping! Wink
