Last Thursday I headed over to the dynamic Selma corridor in Hollywood for an intimate workshop at the Dream Hotel with celebrity Makeup Artist Patrick Ta using the new COVER FX Glitter Drops and Shimmer Veil. I am obsessed. I love the formulas on both of these which is even more amazing considering that it is a vegan and cruelty free line.
The Glitter Drops: Glitter can sometimes get so very messy but this stays exactly where you put it. This liquid glitter is ultra-concentrated and housed in a dropper bottle. You can mix into your favorite face and body products, although Patrick did mention that he doesn't like to do that with foundation because you might end up looking like a disco ball. He likes to put the product down first, exactly where he wants it, and then go in with foundation and a Beauty Blender for a more precise placement. The finish is luminous and feels sophisticated and expensive. My favorite color is Mirage which imparts that perfect golden champagne shine.
The Shimmer Veil: This product comes in a doe-foot tube and has a weightless creme texture. The finish is less shiny than the glitter drops and is made for the eyes and lips -- places where glitter can become quite challenging. They are crease-proof and impart a shimmering effect. My favorite color is Moonstone and gives you the perfect bronzy eye.
The event was so cute, shimmery and glittery with touches of pink everywhere, and so many Instagramable moments. They had the cutest desert table (Image Credit: @jennchanglam via IG)
