Soo...You may have noticed on our homepage that there's a super special "App-Only Exclusive Early Access" highlighter event happening soon (That's 2/26, to be exact). Well I got my hot little hands on a couple of the products that will be in the event in a meeting today and I *may* have snuck some pics (okay fine I didn't sneak them, I totally took pics and then asked if I could share them with you guys because I love you but I also love my job).
Anyhoo, the Anastasia Nicole Guerriero Glow palette on the left won't be news to any of you, but OMG LOOK AT THE NEW COVER FX CED SHADE (CED=Custom Enhancer Drops). It's called Halo and you guessed it, it's a Holo. I'm. Obsessed. I've swatched it on everyone within a 5 foot radius and it's legit, you guys.
Both of these pretties will for sale in the app-exclusive early access event on 2/26, so get ready. Meanwhile I may have pocketed the Cover FX drops* so I'll be coming to work tomorrow SHININ'.
*okay fine, I didn't pocket the drops, they gave them to me because I swooned. Again, I like my job and I've never stolen so much as stamp in my life. xo
I picked up the CoverFx halo drops and I'm so excited! This looks like exactly the kind of look I've been trying to achieve but haven't be able to.
These are beautiful. Is it age appropriate for me though? I'm thinking of getting a new highlighter, I have Champagne Pop and it's gorgeous, but I don't want to look like I'm trying to be 20 again 🙂 Should I stay with something more subtle?
Interesting that Champagne Pop is your go to since what you're looking for is something less intense! I find that one to be one of the most BAM in your face highlighters out of many I have tried!
I think youll love the pressed cover fx moonstone highlighter though. Its nothing crazy but gives a lovely glow! @AMK721
I have too many highlighters to count and I totally get what you're saying @AMK721. For work, I use either Tom Ford Moodlight which has a bit more grown up shimmer, or MUFE's Golden highlighter. Both are the gelled formula and are a bit more low key. I'm wondering if maybe a liquid would be nice for you. They tend to be a bit more toned down. Maybe the new MJ Coconut one?
@tsavorite It depends on how much you use - you can make it really pop or tone it down a little by mixing with blush. Also, you can brush some setting powder over it to tone it down.
I, personally, have no qualms wearing an ever so slight obvious highlight to work using champagne pop. Most people I work with are older men or women who aren't too much into makeup, so they will comment that I look younger or I'm glowing, but I don't think they really notice or realize that it's highlighter. 😊
@AMK721. As an "over 20" woman, myself 😉, I have found that you can easily tone down highlighters for the office. For example, you can mix the liquid highlighters into your foundation for a lovely "lit from within" natural glow. You can also blend a small amount of powder highlight into your blush for a more subtle effect. Personally, I rock the obvious highlighter look with no shame - I just stick to gold/rose gold at work and save the more mermaidy colors for my downtime. ❤️
In keeping with Tamara76's theme, I mix liquid highligher (Becca Skin Perfector) into my sunscreen on non-makeup days for a pretty glow with no effort. About 1 small drop per face-sized dollop of sunscreen works for me, any more and it looks like I'm sweaty.
Love the idea of mixing highlight with blush! Thanks @Tamara76!
I might have to step up my game and try some new things lol. I work, go to the gym, then come home and make dinner. I guess I could get fancy for dinnertime lol.
Thanks @Insomniacmuffin good to know. My new office has a large window so I'm in a lot of natural light which I love so I need something not too overpowering.
Does anyone know if the exclusive launch is for all four, the cover fx, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Marc jacobs, and the urban decay? Or will the Marc jacobs and urban decay still be available tomorrow and thereafter? I'm trying to decide if I need to buy them all today but I'd like to wait for a decent promo (or for the eyepick2 to actually be working).
@sarahshter If my memory is correct, I think it said for 48 hours? I would imagine (guessing) that all the items would be available for the 48 hours or until sold out. I would also assume they would then be officially released on the website. HTH!
Yay! @veronika23 I am so glad you got the links - that was the first thing I thought about after scoring my highlights, but it was 3 a.m. and my brain was not fully awake - I hope you were able to snag everything you wanted. 💗
BTW - I totally understand about your Blackberry - I used to have a company issued bb and I loved it soooo much! I was so sad when they issued us iPhones a while back - I still miss it!
@Tamara76that's alright! 🙂 Yes just Halo for now. Although the missing UD shade skywalk sounds cool. 🙂
My brother had BB's for years and I never got it... it wasn't for me... but when they came out with the Z10 I decided to switch from a Samsung phone. OMG it's the best! So underrated. I am pretty pissed that only 2 companies have the monopoly of things. People don't realize that by having a monopoly we loose. There needs to be more competition. I don't think they make the Z10 anymore (unsure though) but I don't want to switch... like this is the best phone I ever had even if I don't get all the apps.. Honestly I don't need them anyway 😄
