Cover Fx Love!

[ Edited ]

So I tried to look for but did not find a thread dedicated to Cover FX.

 

Anyone on here love this brand? I feel like this brand is not talked about much but has some real gems, and the products are supposedly good for you, or at least sensitive-skin friendly. 

 

Since so many other brands have a thread dedicated to them, I figured I'd make one for Cove FX. =)

 

I personally love the Illuminating Powder: I've had the smaller size for forever and it's still going strong. I know a lot of you love the illuminating drops.

I recently went back to use my Cover FX custom cover drops and noticed that they had dried out. When I say they dried out, what I mean is that they are no longer a thin liquidy consistency which is compatible with the dropper, but rather the consistency of a thick liquid foundation. Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, how did you remedy it?

I happened to be by a Sephora on Friday (which doesn't happen as much as I would like), so I had an SA make me a sample of halo. (I really wanted to see if it worked for me or not prior to the 15% off sale.)

 

I'm going to try it mixed with sunscreen today, and report back. Should I try it all-over first, or should I try celestial mixed with sunscreen on one side, and halo mixed with sunscreen on the other side to compare the two side-by-side?

Re: Cover Fx Love!

If you're not going out Id say try both! Mostly because I am curious about how they compare =)

@Maria88 I actually didn't notice too much of a difference with halo applied to one side, and celestial applied to the other. 

 

Halo does seem a bit runnier. I think I am okay just to own celestial. They look too similar on me (mixed with sunscreen and under matte foundation and powder) to warrant purchasing halo, as well. 

Re: Cover Fx Love!

I tried the halo only all-over (mixed with sunscreen). In some different lights, there was a bit of a more bluish cast than when I wear celestial. 

 

I only have one class tomorrow, so I will see about applying each to one half of my face. I don't really mind if there's a slight difference. (Probably no one will notice, or else they are looking at my face too closely. Smiley Tongue)

Re: Cover Fx Love!

if anyone could swatch holo mixed with a semi-matte or matte foundation, i'd SO appreciate it! 

Re: Cover Fx Love!

@unfungirl I didn't forget you!

 

Hopefully you can see - I can't get great light - This is EL Double Wear with Halo on my arm:

Re: Cover Fx Love!

@Tamara76 When you mix it in with your foundation, can you tell if there's a shift? As in, if I apply it to my face with my foundation, will I look like I am turning into Violet after she ate the gum?

@makeitup305 LOL!  No, it's just glowy, not purple.  I think it looks natural (at least no one has said I look like a blueberry at a family bbq I attended yesterday).

Re: Cover Fx Love!

@Tamara76  THANK YOU!! it's so gorgeous omg. i must have it!! you're the best!

Re: Cover Fx Love!

You are very welcome!  @unfungirl

Re: Cover Fx Love!

@Tamara76 Ooo, can you also take a pic of celestial mixed with that foundation so that we can compare? 

 

Thank you for the pic!

Re: Cover Fx Love!

@Heatoyos1  Sadly I don't have Celestial. Smiley Sad. But now I am also very curious! Smiley Happy

Re: Cover Fx Love!

@Tamara76 You and me both! Smiley Very Happy

If anyone could swatch Moonlight alongside Rose Gold, I would appreciate it. I originally purchased Moonlight because I wanted a rose gold highlighter. I'm wondering if the difference between the two is really all that great.

Re: Cover Fx Love!

Can someone please compare halo to celestial? 

 

I have celestial (and love it), but am wondering if halo would look even better. 

 

I wear one-two drops mixed with product and applied all-over the face. I really want that "glow from within" look. 

 

I have fair Asian skin, and blue tones look better on me (blue-toned reds look better than orange-toned red lipsticks, silver looks better on me than gold, my veins look more blue than green, etc.)

Here you go:

(top to bottom/right to left): halo, celestial, moonlight)

 

I guess halo has more of a violet shimmer in blue, like Milk Makeup Supernova. Celestial has pinky shimmer in silver, like Cargo Champagne. Moonlight is like Julep Sheer Glow.

 

Actually, here are swatches of all three with what I think are good matches in stick highlighter form:

The milk highlighter stick might be a smidge more violet where halo is slightly bluer. The cargo highlighter stick might be a smidge pinker where celestial is slightly more silver. 

 

Nothing beats these in terms of shine though. You can make them shine a little or a lot, much more than any highlighter stick.

@purly Thank you so much! I just bought celestial, but I may have to pick up halo. Smiley Very Happy

Here are some of my really quick thoughts on Halo. It’s super beautiful in real life! Easy to apply and you can certainly amp up the intensity. I am happy I was able to get this early. Thanks @Randell for the pm! I love it! @ZombieMetroAnt

 

So it is blue but it seems to pull more violet once on my face (bare skin).

More intense and blue/violet than the Milk Holographic Stick (although colors are very similar)

More violet than KVD’s Alchemist Amethyst

More intense and violet than ABH Moon Child Blue Ice (and no glitter)

Very similar to ABH Moon Child Purple Horseshoe (and no glitter) except it looks like halo has a tad of fuchsia when I move and look at them side by side. It’s hard to explain.
