Last month, 2018 rolled in, and with it, so did iridescence, shine and lots of glitter! Therefore, 2018 is our year to embrace the fun of glitter and bring it back into our lives! Big brand products, and the spring runway shows have steered us to the new 2018 glitter trend (although it never really went away!) Queen of all things cool and trendy Pat MCGrath, has incorporated glitter in her Mothership Palettes I, II, III, and IV. Moreover, Natasha Denona recently released her glitter and high shine Diamonds and Blush palettes, and the chroma crystal top coats for eyes. Third, Stila has glittered their glitter and glow magnificant metallic eyeshadows. Now, Cover FX has launched their new Cover FX Shimmer Veil at Sephora, for $28.
Concurrently, the new launch is also Cover FX’s first foray into the world of color cosmetics. Shimmer Veil is a multi-use shimmering cream color. (click here for the link to purchase Cover FX Shimmering Veil)
Cover FX Shimmer Veil Packaging
The packaging for Shimmer veil looks like a tube of lip gloss. Furthermore, the application wand has a flocked doe foot applicator.
Moreover, the flocked doe foot applicator has a pointed tip for a more precise application. For example, use the pointed tip when using the multi-use cream on the inner corners of your eyes.
However, to apply to cheeks or eyelids, use the length of the applicator to swipe on the veil.
Cover FX Shimmer Veil Formula
The Cover FX Shimmer Veil is a versatile, multi-use formula. First, the formula has a creamy, weightless texture. As a result, it goes on sheer.
Therefore, if you want a more opaque look, you can add another layer. Besides, a little product goes a long way, therefore, the thicker the layer, the more difficult it is to blend.
Nevertheless, it is an easy formula to apply because it glides onto the skin. In addition, it is a bright, pigmented formula that is long-lasting. Moreover, the formula doesn’t crease and is transfer-proof!
Cover FX Shimmer Veil Shades
Shimmer Veil comes in six shades. I purchased three of the six colors.
First, Halo is a holographic multi-dimensional shimmer shade.
Next I purchased Celestial, which is a glimmering pearl shimmer shade.
Last, I purchased Magic, a shimmering blush champagne shade.
The other three shades include Amethyst, an iridescent lavender shimmer shade. Also, Moonstone is a shimmering Topaz shade. Finally, Soleil is a shimmering peachy pink shade.
How To Apply Multi-Use Cover FX Shimmer Veil
Shimmer Veil’s weightless, creamy texture, along with its multi-dimensional shimmer, creates high impact looks on your eyes, lips and cheeks.
In addition, for high impact on your eyes, lips and cheeks, apply Shimmer Veil with your fingers, Next, tap the cream into your skin with your fingers.
However, if you prefer a more diffused look, use a beauty blender to blend the Shimmer Veil it into your skin.
Moreover, to use the Veil to highlight your cheeks, make sure to apply the Veil onto the flattest part of the cheekbone. As a result, the light, or a camera will catch even more glimmer.
To apply on your eyes. swipe the Veil onto your lash line. Then, using your fingers, spread the cream up to the crease of your eye.
Furthermore, if you want to create a beautiful blush look, create dimension by blending the Veil from the top of your cheekbone with your blush.
In addition, use the Shimmer Veil to highlight the inner corners of your eyes, and your brow bone.
Also, use the Shimmer Veil under your foundation to illuminate your face.
Last, try putting the Veil on your bare lips, and then put lip gloss over it! Or, put lipstick on first, and put the Shimmer Veil over it.
I’m in love with Cover FX Shimmer Veil. It reminds me of the shimmer and glow from the Stila Glitter and Glow Metallic eye shadows. Except, the Shimmer Veil is more metallic than the Stila Glitter and Glow Metallic shadows. I also love the versatility of the Shimmer Veil, which can do just about anything , and go just about anywhere you want to sparkle and shine! The shades are stunning. I love the ethereal look you can achieve with the Shimmer Veil.
