I have had a couple of months now to try out the Cover Fx Perfector Face Palette in Light-Medium that I received in my March 2019 ‘la vie en rose’ BoxyLuxe and decided to give you my thoughts on it.
As I said above, I got the Cover Fx Perfector Face Palette in my March 2019 BoxyLuxe, it was also in the regular box, but you can purchase it on Sephora.ca for $60.00 CAD.
The packaging is very slim and simplistic. The outer packaging is a matte, cream plastic but does have a good weight to it. As you can see the shade names are printed out on the back of the palette, as well as what the intended use is for each powder. I do wish the shade names were printed on the inside of the palette as well instead they only printed the intended use on the inside.
The shades in the Cover Fx Perfector Face Palette in Light-Medium are-Starlight (highlight), Moonbeam (brighter), Divine (highlighter), Silhouette (contour), Stellar (finishing powder), Sublime (blush).
As you can see from my swatches, all of the shades swatched pigmented and smooth. Starlight is the darkest of the highlight shades and I have used it mostly as a lid shade on my eyes, it is bit to dark for my face right now. Moonbeam is more of a white shade but does blend out to a nice sheen on the cheeks for me. Divine is a great slightly peachy shade that works great as a highlighter on my face right now but I also think it will work well when I happen to get some colour on my face. Silhouette is a perfect warmer contour shade that can also bronze up the face some without looking orange or muddy. Stellar, the finishing powder looks in the pan as if it had glitter/sparkle in it, but that didn’t seem to translate on my face. It does have a slight pink tone to it but it worked well as a finishing/blending powder on me. The blush shade in Sublime looks scary bright in the pan and in the swatch, but the formula blended out so well on my cheeks and gave the perfect pink flush to the cheeks.
I have used the Cover Fx Perfector Fave Palette a ton as a face palette, but I have also used it as eyeshadow. All of the shades worked just as well on my eyes as they did on my face. Silhouette is a perfect crease shade that blended just as well on my eyes as it did on my face. The top 3 shades are great lid shades, giving a beautiful brightening effect without showing texture. I have used the finishing powder to blend out the edges of my crease as well as a slightly brightening brow bone shade. I have even used the blush shade as a lid shade, it works great there as well! There have been quite a few days where I used the Cover Fx Perfector Face palette for my full face of makeup.
As you can see from my thoughts on the Cover Fx Perfector Face Palette, I am really happy to have it. It isn’t a palette I would have picked up on my own, I’m not the biggest fan of face palettes. I am glad that I received it in my Boxy Charm and decided to give it a try and to think outside of the ‘face palette’ that it is marketed as. I could easily pack only this palette for a short trip and still have everything I needed.
