Your Treat

Coloured Raine Your Treat Focal Point Glowlighter ($25.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium-dark, coppery brown with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, blendable texture that was dense but not difficult to pickup product from with a variety of highlighting brushes (fan, tapered, more blush-like). The powder sat beautifully on the skin and gave a reflective shine that did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. The color wore well for nine hours before fading on me.

The Focal Point Glowlighter formula is supposed to be “butter soft” with “high impact luminous glow.” There are eight shades available from pale duochromes to deep copperS (view all swatches here). The formula was denser, firmer, and a little creamier than the average powder highlighter, so fluffy, less dense brushes had trouble picking up a lot of product, whereas denser highlighting brushes and blush brushes picked up product just fine. Most of the shades were quite smooth in feel with medium to full coverage and a strong, reflective shine on the skin and lasted for eight to nine hours. If you’re someone who likes buildable highlighters from medium to opaque with a metallic sheen, these might be right up your alley.

Coloured Raine Cutie Pie Focal Point Glowlighter ($25.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a light-medium pink with warmer undertones and cooler, lavender pearl. It had medium pigmentation, which was buildable to semi-opaque coverage with two layers. The texture was chunkier and did not seem as finely-milled as most shades in the range, and it was quite dense. I had to use a heavier hand with a blush brush to get medium coverage with one swirl in the compact. The color shifted from a pinkish white to a more noticeable pinkish hue on my skin tone, depending on the angle and how the light was reflecting off of my cheeks (that is why you’ll see two full face photos with shade as it was such a dramatic shift). The highlighter lasted for eight and a half hours on me.

Jouer Tan Lines Powder Highlighter ($24.00 for 0.16 oz.) is medium-dark, coppery brown with warm undertones and a golden, metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented where a little went a long way, but the texture was still soft enough that I could use a lighter hand (or a more feathery brush) and get sheerer coverage if desired. The powder felt smooth to the touch, never powdery, and blended without nearly no effort on my skin. The only downside to this particular shade was that it did emphasize my skin’s natural texture when worn more heavily. It wore for just over eight and a half hours before I noticed it fading.

Jouer Skinny Dip Powder Highlighter ($24.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy copper with warm undertones and fine pink, gold, and copper pearl. It had a high-shine finish that was very reflective on the skin and was just shy of pore-emphasizing territory. The consistency was incredibly smooth–almost cream-like as it was denser, creamy, forgiving, and blendable but never kicked up excess powder in the pan. The highlighter wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading.

ColourPop Birthday Cake Super Shock Shadow Review, Photos, Swaatches

Birthday Cake

ColourPop Birthday Cake Super Shock Shadow ($5.00) is a medium-dark, rosy copper with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of pink and copper sparkle. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to opaque coverage with two layers. The consistency was lightly creamy, emollient without being too slippery, and noticeably sparkly, so it did not feel quite as smooth as other Super Shock Shadows have in the past (but not in a dry way). It applied well on the lid and lasted for ten hours with minor fallout.

This eyeshadow is not available for purchase; it is a free gift with purchase on all ColourPop orders of $10 or more in celebration of their 3rd anniversary.

Urban Decay Skywalk Naked Skin Highlighting Fluid

Skywalk

Urban Decay Skywalk Naked Skin Highlighting Fluid ($28.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a sheer, bluish white with fine, iridescent pearl. As described, it was sheer and only buildable to semi-sheer coverage and the key was to let the initial layer dry down before adding any more on top. The consistency was thin, more water-like, and fluid over the skin. I was able to pat it over my cheeks and blend out with my fingertips on bare skin as well as over liquid foundation, but I did have to be careful not to disturb any powder products I layered it over due to the wateriness of the formula. On its own, the highlighter lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

The Naked Skin Highlighting Fluid is supposed to be a “sheer, weightless formula” that gives skin a “dewy, lit-from-within look.” I think one of the key takeaways from the brand’s description is that it is “sheer,” “subtle,” and “never overdone” — it is a subtle highlighter, and they tend to look more similar than not applied (at least, on me). They had sheer to medium, buildable coverage with a very fluid, thin texture (not quite watery) and were blendable on the skin, whether bare or over liquid foundations. If I was too vigorous blending out the product, it did cause some separation of my base products if I had powder on top, but it was fine with gentle blending (fingertips or stippling brush). The formula dried down and wasn’t tacky on the skin, and they lasted between seven and a half and eight hours on me. You can view swatches all of the full line here.

The brand posted some video demos that included using it alone as well as mixed with foundation. I think that the smaller amount is less conducive to regular mixing with base products but is a sufficient amount for a spot highlighter. If you wanted something more for mixing, similar products with similar subtly often contain at least 0.50 fl. oz., if not more.
