A few months ago I wrote a blog post on SheerCover makeup and expressed how much I loved the brand. The minerals are really easy to work with and the products are really affordable. In this blog post, I've decided to show you the Sheer Cover highlighter powder and the smokey eye shadow palette, which have recently become two of my favourite products.
I don't wear much eyeshadow as I religiously stick to my cat-flick eyeliner and red lipstick makeup routine, but this kit has made me reconsider my makeup look. There's nothing sexier than a smouldering smokey eye and these colours are perfect for blending and creating that look. Since I received the palette, I've been using the purple and silver colours regularly and noticed they have stayed on for a considerable amount of time. Most eyeshadows I have used in the past have smudged very easily and it's put me off wearing them. The second aspect I love about the Sheer Cover palette is the pigmentation of the products. The colours stand out and rather than layering the colour on for a dramatic look, the colour applies with literally one glide of your applicator. The SheerCover eye palette retails at £20.95, which I think is affordable for the selection of colours available and the fact that you only need a small amount at a tiny. The packaging is glossy and looks expensive and you really feel that you're buying into luxury.
The second product I tried was the 'Lip to Lid highlighter' in the shade bronze. This product is great for contouring those cheek bones or adding a little bit of colour to your face if you're pale like me. I love how it shimmers in the light and the fact that you only need a small amount to make a difference to your face. The powder can also be used on your eyes, lips or even to patch up your fake tan. So far, I'm loving this powder and I'm wearing it nearly everyday. I never thought I'd find a highlighter that rivalled my NARS orgasm, but this definitely does. The highlighter retails at £17.95 and although I think this is a tiny bit on the expensive side for this product, I would definitely repurchase it due to it's versatility.
Overall I love the colours and the look the products create. It feels like i'm wearing a second skin rather than lots of makeup and best of all, it looks the highlighting powder looks natural.
What do you think of these products?
