Hello pretties! SmileFor quite a long time the American brand Cover FX was tempting me, though I managed to test only some of their products. Before, I already reviewed the Perfect Light Highlighting Powder from the brand, so today I’m writing my post about the Cover FX Shimmer Veil.

The design of the product is rather stylish but still frills-free at the same time. The plastic casing is thick, it’s difficult to scratch. The base is see-through, while the top cap is silver. The lettering is of good quality here and doesn’t fade off.

Size - 4 ml. Shelf life - 6 months of opening.

Manufactured in Italy.

The products are moussy and gel-like, it feels like the texture isn’t smooth there. Therefore, the swatch shows pretty good coverage but on my eyes, the product doesn't look so perfect. However, a second layer can save the situation. But be careful and apply it only over the absolutely dry first layer. And work as neat as possible.

If you apply too much, then the product will crack and look terrible. But I have to give proper respect to the staying power of the eyeshadow. It’s excellent! Sometimes I can wear it even without a primer and it always stays on until the moment I wash my makeup off.

The shimmer doesn’t fall out but of course, it’ll flake off if you start blending the product out. This product, the same as the Lime Crime Diamond Crushers or Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow, is more a shimmering top coat, which is more like an accent for any makeup.

The product offers a small applicator, which takes out the right amount of the formula that is enough to apply to one eye.

Some more details about the product concerning its application. I always have to work quick with this eyeshadow, as it sets within 20-30 seconds.

The Shimmer Veil collection offers some colors which are also wearable and rather multi-tasking. I have mine in the color Celestial.

It’s such a silver-pink color with an abundance of chunky bits of shimmer to it. The shade looks bold and bright and I find it good for any evening party makeup, as well as a gleaming accent product for my eyes.

As for daytime makeup, well, this eyeshadow is probably too bright for that purpose. And yes, even if you apply it with one layer it still won’t look wearable.

This liquid Cover FX Shimmer Veil eyeshadow didn’t impress me, you know. The formula isn’t the easiest in the world to work with, even though I like how expressive my makeup looks with it.

But in general, this product didn’t touch my heart and I believe that I can find more glistening and interesting eyeshadow shades from the mentioned above Lime Crime or Stila brands.

Price - $28.00

Thanks for your attention! Be beautiful and have a pleasant shopping day! Wink
