Remember that one time I told you that illuminating facial sprays would be a thing soon? Cover FX Illuminating Setting Spray ($31) proves my theory that everyone and perhaps their mom will be releasing some sort of glowing makeup setting spray in the coming months.
Ok, so, I’m like the total nay sayer here because I’m thinking of myself in 7th grade. That was the year that I discovered boys could be more than just your friend, became a Scholastic drug addict, and had a thing for all over glitter hair and body spray.
I don’t see the point in setting my makeup with a spray that gives my skin a glow. I’m picturing a ton of shimmer or glitter or mica or sparkle all over the place. Isn’t the point of highlighter to accent certain areas on your face but not your entire complexion!? Let’s face it, I’ve always readily admitted I’m no expert at powder highlighter because I’m heavy handed. Imagine taking that powder and putting it in a spray bottle? I’d be misting myself madly. You can’t give sparkle crack in a bottle to a self proclaimed shimmer lover and ask them to just lightly mist themselves with it. I’ll be spraying it everywhere including under my arms.
Not to mention it seems odd to me to mist highlighter all over my face. But who knows, this could work and it could potentially deliver a luminous finish to your skin that looks amazing. I have doubts though as they recommend it as a face and body mist that gives an intense glow.
Mmmhmmm watch me overdue it.
Cover FX Illuminating Setting Spray is available now at Sephora.com.
