Welcome back to Haley’s Beauty Room and for Day 12 of Blogmas! Oh my goodness we are already halfway to Christmas! How exciting! So today I have something really special to share with you. Of course this all goes back to my love for highlighters in all forms.
If you can remember about a year or so ago Cover FX launched their Custom Enhancer Drops, which are ultra-concentrated illuminating and bronzing drops. I immediately went and purchased two shades of the illuminating drops in Celestial and Moonlight.
Those were my favorite liquid highlighters for the longest time. I mixed them in with everything and was glowed to the max. Biggest downside to that product, each bottle is $42. FORTY TWO DOLLARS for 0.5 fl oz. That’s insane. Enter in what this post is really about! I think I found the perfect dupe for the Custom Enhancer Drops.
This option is drugstore and works almost as well as the Cover FX version. The product I am talking about is the Makeup Revolution Liquid Highlighter. This product comes in almost identical colors to the Cover FX and has very similar packaging. Let’s break down this product!
- Starlight (cool pink shimmer)
- Champagne(golden beige)
- Luminous Gold (sandy gold)
- Lustre Gold (warm golden copper)
- Rose Gold
- Bronze Gold
- Unicorn Tears (blue/violet iridescent pearl)
Price & Where to Buy
For 0.61 fl oz this product retails for $9.00. That’s a fraction of what it costs to purchase the Cover FX and you get more product!
I purchased mine from Ulta Beauty, but you can also purchase from TamBeauty.com, however the price increases to $10.78. Pro tip, if you shop at Ulta, since this is a drugstore brand, they constantly have buy 1 get 1 50% off sales of the entire brand.
I think that if you are looking to purchase the Cover FX version, but are having qualms about the price, try the Makeup Revolution option first. The shades are very similar and the product performs almost the same. I will say that Cover FX offers bronzing shades, while Makeup Revolution only offers highlighting shades.
The only downside to the Makeup Revolution highlighter is that it feels very oily when you first put it on. After it dried down I didn’t notice it still being oily, but just something to be cautious about if you have oily skin.
The Makeup Revolution item I feel is also not as concentrated as the Cover FX. It is still very pigmented and intense, but something about the Cover FX just seems to have a little more oomf!
All that being said, the Makeup Revolution liquid highlighter is still absolutely beautiful. The shade options are great and it applies very well. It blends out easily and doesn’t move around other products if you place it on top. Plus, for $9, can you really beat that?
All in all, I highly recommend this product and I think it is a perfect dupe for the Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops at a way better price.
