Although the Cover FX Highlighting Powders are no where near as intense as the Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops (HERE), they’re softly glowy in a non drying powder format – you can totally tell there is no talc (although there is mica). That’s one of the things I’m really noticing at the moment – a big improvement in traditional ‘powder’ formats – this one feels almost slightly wet because the mica is coated with amino acids. This makes for better ‘glow’ and superior longevity – a gust of wind won’t blow it off your face like some powders that are so dry they start falling away the moment they go on.
There isn’t a lot of light around at the moment to get the real reflective nature of the Cover FX Highlighting Powders but they’re glimmery and soft focus. In the swatch is Moonlight (the palest), Sunlight and then Candlelight. You only need the merest whisper of a brush over them – these are low-light highlights rather than full beams (go for the Enhancers if you want that metallic sheeny type glow). They’re £25 each HERE, and a good option for those who like fragrance and mineral oil free products.
