Can you explain how this product works?

It’s really simple. Custom Cover Drops are pure pigment drops that allow you to conveniently customize your foundation or skin care. Just put your product of choice in the palm of your hand and mix in Custom Cover Drops with your finger to transform into your perfect level of coverage—from a sheer tint to a full coverage foundation.

How many drops should you use?

Use one drop for sheer coverage, two for medium coverage, three for full coverage, and four for total coverage.

Can you wear them alone?

We recommend the above formula for best results, but this product gives you the freedom to customize and find out what works best for you.

Can they be mixed with any formula? Do certain formulas work better?

They mix with water-based, oil-based, and even silicone-based products. They mix easily with lotion, cream, gel, oil, foam, or mousse. I haven’t found any base yet that they won’t mix with! You can use them with moisturizers, primers, foundations, BB creams, CC creams….

What about sunscreen?

Because we take skin care so seriously, and protecting the skin from the sun is very important, we recommend you apply your sunscreen as directed by the manufacturer. We don’t know how Custom Cover Drops would affect each SPF rating, so we suggest you don’t mix with sunscreen.

What is the shade range?

We have 24 shades in our Global Shade Palette. What’s so great about the shade range is we have Custom Cover Drops for very fair skin to very deep skin in a pink, neutral, and golden undertone.

Can you mix and match drops to find your perfect shade?

Because of the vast shade range, most people will find their perfect shade already available. That said, if you want to mix and match drops to lighten or deepen your shade, you absolutely could!

What are the key ingredients?

The formula features our exclusive Flash Fusion Technology. The pigments are suspended in a solution that “flashes” off, leaving behind only pigment. The pigments are also coated in lecithin to smooth the edges of the pigments. This will give a smooth application and prevent drying on the skin.

Do they have any skincare benefits?

This product is really all about customization. You can add it to products with benefits that work for you. So, with that in mind, the possibilities are endless!
