Hello beauties, I think it’s fair to say we’re all about dat glow (without wanting to look oily), am I right? Well if you love some glow, than you would have already seen the Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops. When these first came out we all went crazy for them. I held off, mainly because of the price tag. Fast forward a couple of months and there’s a few dupes on the market. One of the most affordable being the Australis Liquid Strobe Illuminating Drops. But are they actually a dupe? Here’s my comparison of the two x

Review about the Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops

Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops
Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops
  • Retails for $62 AUD
  • Now available in 7 shades, ranging from gold, silver, bronze and lilac
  • These are extremely pigmented and you only need a few drops
  • You can mix them in your moisturiser, primer or foundation for some added luminosity or layer on top of your makeup as a highlighter
  • The dropper is great, it’s so easy to use. It’s very liquidy so it not difficult to control
  • With the below photo, I am wearing the shade Moonstone. It looks more copper and gold in the packaging but comes out more neutral on the skin
  • I find you only need one drop in total for both cheekbones
  • In terms of the finish, its more on the metallic side which I love!
  • I apply the drops onto the tops of my cheekbones and blend out with a damp Beauty Blender
  • I’ve tried mixing in one drop with my foundation and it provides the most luminous glow without making look or feel oily! Its a tad on the shimmer side, only if you look really closely. I feel if I were to add any more drops I would end up looking like a disco ball. Moderation is key when mixing with foundations x

Here’s a comparison of both of the drops, as you can see the finish is very different.

Review the Australis Liquid Strobe Illuminating Drops

Australis Liquid Strobe Illuminating Drops
Australis Liquid Strobe Illuminating Drops
  • Retails for $19.95 AUD
  • Available in 2 shades, gold and pink
  • Like the Cover FX drops, you can mix with your base products or layer on top of your makeup
  • I have the shade pink, but personally I feel it’s a bit more on the silver side- not a negative, if anything I’m actually happier it’s not too pink
  • The dropper is easy to use, but because it’s a thick texture, overtime the bottle opening is going to get gluggy
  • I find one drop for each cheekbone provides a beauty glossy/ wet look as opposed to a highlighted look
  • I apply the drops onto the tops of my cheekbones and blend out with a damp Beauty Blender
  • You can set the drops with some powder highlight or leave as it for a glossy look, however it’s a bit sticky if it’s not set with powder

As you can see they are quite different. While I don’t think the Australis drops are a dupe for the Cover FX ones, I do think the Australis ones are still pretty darn good. Personally I prefer the finish of the Cover FX ones, but again that’s just personal preference. I prefer the Cover FX drops because of the texture and the finish, I love that they look more metallic. Have you tried these illuminating drops? What’s your thoughts?
