I’m pretty partial to powder highlights, but any time I get the opportunity to try a liquid formula, I happily take it.
This is the Dermablend Glow Creator Multi-Use Liquid Highlighter in Pearl.
The bottle contains 15 mL of product. When I placed the bottle next to the Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops, it looks noticeably smaller, however, both bottles stated they each contained 15 ml of product……I don’t know which one is more accurate, I’m no scientist.
Similar to Cover FX, there is a medicine dropper-style applicator. It was a bit tougher to get the product out of the medicine dropper because the formula is much thicker than Cover FX.
If you look at the two formulas side by side, you can see that Cover FX is much thinner. If I were to rotate my hand, the Cover FX formula would definitely run down, while the Dermablend formula would stay put.
I applied the formula to my cheeks with my fingertips. I put a drop on the back of my hand, transferred it to my face with my index finger, started to blend with the same index finger, then blended out the edges with a clean fingertip.
I’m actually really into this highlight. In the past, I had been intimidated by liquid highlights because they were tough to control and keep in a targeted area, but the thicker formula in Dermablend’s liquid highlight allowed me to keep the product in one spot, without having to blend it out farther than I originally intended. And the finish was actually super cool! I caught a glimpse of my highlight in bathroom lighting and caught myself fawning over the colour shift. The main colour stayed the same, but there was this iridescent shimmer (like teeny tiny glitter flecks) that changed colour according to how it caught the light. It’s a yes from me!
