2017 is already shaping up to be the year of the highlighter with a slew of new and limited edition shades being released. I thought it might be a good time to share a list of the best performing–and permanent!–gold-hued, powder highlighters that I’ve reviewed to date. What are your favorite gold highlighters?

Tom Ford Cheek Colors
Here’s a look at how well the reformulated Tom Ford Cheek Color ($60.00 for 0.28 oz.) did, now that I’ve reviewed all the shades in my possession! (There’s one missing, which I will review as soon as I have it!) For 2017, Tom Ford reformulated this powder blush formula, and the new formula is described as “layers of possibility, from a sexy glow to a more dramatic, color-rich look” (that sounds like “buildable”) that is supposed to apply “with the comfort of a cream.” Overall, the texture is thinner, finely-milled but drier than the original formula, and the shimmer has become finer and less apparent through many of the new-old shades. The formula was still fairly blendable to very blendable and particularly long-wearing with semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation.
