Cover FX Perfect Light Mini Highlight Review

Hello loves,

On Black Friday Sephora released a bunch of special mini value sets and included in those was the Cover FX Perfect Light Highlighting Powder in the shade ‘Moonlight’ (don’t worry, it’s still available). Finally, more brands are doing this! Highlighter is definitely a product I’ve never hit pan on. My ‘Champagne Pop’ still looks relatively new despite me using it countless times. Mini sized highlighter simply makes sense!



It’s funny, as much of a highlight fanatic I’ve become I’ve never tried a Cover FX highlighter. I kind of oversaturated my collection with glow kits and Becca highlighters so it’s a bit of a stretch to shell out $42CAD for the full size on yet another product I’ll probably never hit pan on. Then I saw Cover FX released a mini size, and it is only $12CAD!

‘Moonlight’ is the only shade available as a mini, and it is described as a soft silver glow on Sephora but in some lighting it looks like more of a champagne tone. This is formulated with ‘ultra fine pearls’ so there is no glittery mess, and this is also a vegan and cruelty free product. This limited-edition rose-gold adorned beauty is still available from Sephora however it is online only. To buy it, click here.



-Affordable (for the small size)

-No glitter particles

-Feels creamy and blends beautifully

-Does not enhance texture

-Lasts all day!

-Very flattering, not too over the top metallic but not too natural



-I honestly have none for once in my life.




IN LOVE. I rarely give a product a perfect 5/5 so honey you know this is good! This powder is gorgeous!! It gives you a beautiful glow without looking like you’re about to go to a night club. I would say this is a few notches more glowy than the YSL Divine Lumiere Highlight powder (see my full review + swatches here) but a few notches less glowy than Becca’s Champagne Pop. Every time I look in the mirror I’m like “oomph YES!” which is exactly how it should be with makeup! Highly highly recommend! And what a perfect gift or stocking stuffer.

    I never hit pan on highglighters either hahaha 😀 So it does make much better sense to buy smaller sizes if you can. The packaging on this looks super nice and luxurious. I love that there’s not glitter particles in there, as prefer them without 🙂 The shade is gorgeous as well.

      Thanks for reading love! Yes I love how for a mini, the packaging still looks chic. Some brands offer minis but then the packaging is in crappy cardboard and thin plastic! xo J

    Yay for only $12! I agree mini size is better for highlighters. I still have a mini becca highlighter that I’ve barely used! This one looks lovely xx
