Cover FX Perfect Highlighting Palette Review, Photos, Swatches

Perfect

Cover FX Perfect 6-Pan Highlighting Palette ($39.00 for 0.66 oz.) includes six powder highlighters housed in a slim, plastic compact. The formula is supposed to be “ultra silky” and “highly pigmented.” I’d argue that the texture of the shades included in the palette felt creamier and denser than the standalone powder highlighters by the same formula name, and I found myself enjoying the feel and look of these even more than the standalone formula. All six shades were blendable, pigmented, long-wearing, and flattering on–I was surprised at how metallic some of them appeared on my skin yet did not seem to bring attention to my natural texture.

Value

The Perfect Light Highlighting Powders retail for $34.00 and contain 0.28 oz. when purchased individually (only one shade in the set is available individually, though) or cost $121.43/oz. The palette contains $80.14 worth of product.

Blossom

Blossom is a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good color coverage that was buildable to opaque coverage with about half an additional layer and did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture at high coverage levels. The texture was denser, but it was still blendable and easy enough to pick up with a brush. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

Prism

Prism is a bright, bluish white with cool undertones and a blue-to-teal shifting sheen. The color payoff wasn’t quite opaque, but it was buildable to full coverage with one and a half layers. The texture was slightly drier in the pan but remained blendable and flattering on the skin as it did not accentuate my skin’s natural texture. It was one of the least shiny shades in the palette. The highlighter lasted for eight hours on me.

Rose Gold

Rose Gold is a medium gold with warm, orange undertones and a luminous finish. It had rich pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly on the skin with a highly reflective finish but did not seem to emphasize my skin’s natural texture. The powder felt smooth, silky, and almost cream-like to the touch, as it was firmer in the pan, but it never felt stiff. It blended out easily and stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me.

Golden Peach

Golden Peach is a medium coral with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, though the texture was forgiving enough that a lighter hand or fluffier brush could be used for sheerer coverage if desired. The powder felt smooth, cream-like, and slightly dense but not stiff or difficult to blend out. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Gilded

Gilded is a dark bronze with warm undertones and a golden, metallic sheen. The color payoff was opaque in a single layer, but the consistency was soft, smooth, and finely-milled with moderate density (but not so much that it felt stiff or was hard to work with) and could easily be sheered out or applied with a lighter hand for less coverage. It had a highly reflective sheen but did not accentuate my skin’s texture. On me, the highlighter wore well for eight and a half hours.
