Cover FX Shimmer Veil

I will be the first to admit that when it comes to make up looks, I’m not massively into the whole shimmery/glimmery/glittery eyeshadow look.

Probably, mainly because I don’t really ever have any occasions to attend where such makeup would be deemed appropriate eye lid wear, also because I’ve always really bloody struggled to get on with shimmery/glimmery/glittery eyeshadows.

I’ve always found them to be almost impossible to apply, flaky, dusty and fly-away in texture, leaving every part of my face shimmery BUT my actual eye lids.

*Rolls eyes*

If only I’d had Cover FX’s Shimmer Veil back in the day!

Shimmer Veil is a multi-use, crease-proof liquid shimmer crème that imparts fabulous metallic colours in a range of six different shades.

Designed primarily to be used on eyes, this multi-tasking lovely can also be used on lips and even brow bones to create some seriously out-of-this-world multidimensional shimmer!

I tested out two of six shades in Halo and Amethyst.

Halo is a multi-dimensional, holographic, glistening pearl shade which is probably the most subtle of the six shades- though having said that I’m not sure ‘subtle’ is the right word to use as these products are designed to get you noticed, not have you blend into the background!

Amethyst is the prettiest, iridescent lavender- almost baby pink I’d say.

Eye catching and gorgeous the crème colour is applied via wand and can be used lightly to create a delicate shimmer or built up for a dramatic glistening glow.

Light yet creamy in texture, the weightless crème dries almost instantly upon application and I can attest to its ability to stay put!

Once applied this veil is going NO-WHERE meaning you’re left looking effortlessly ethereal all day long without any hint of smudging or flaking.


Better still, like all Cover FX products their Shimmer Veil’s are vegan and cruelty free as well as being free from mineral oil and fragrance which is great for my sensitive skin.
