Moondust

Ciate Moondust Glow-To Highlighter ($29.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a soft, light pink with warm, beige undertones and a sparkling, luminous sheen. It had a moderate to intense glow, depending on how heavy the application, and fine sparkle. I didn’t feel like it read glittery on the skin, but there were larger particles that may not be in keeping with everyone’s preference.

The formula is supposed to be an “ultra-soft luminizer” with “long-wear” and built-up to “intense, bold shimmer.” The powder was soft, smooth, and finely-milled without being dusty, powdery, nor was it too dense or firmly pressed in the compact. It was incredibly easy to blend and diffuse the highlighter on the skin, and even at higher coverage, it did not emphasize smy skin’s natural texture. The highlighter wore well for eight hours on me before fading subtly.

Gold is the New Black

Dose of Colors Gold is the New Black Supreme Glow Highlighter ($28.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a medium gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer and a lighter touch could get sheerer coverage if desired. The consistency was soft to the touch, almost powdery in a way, but it was also denser and more substantial without being firmly packed in the pan. I found that I had better luck applying and blending out the powder with a blush brush than a tapered highlighting brush, which did not seem dense enough for this texture. Once on the skin, the highlighter lasted for eight hours before fading.

The brand could really use a more informative description of the formula, as all I have to share with you is that it’s supposed to “apply weightlessly, creating an illuminated look.” I bought two shades (there are six available) to try and may eventually purchase the other shades but for now, I just have two (this and Melonade). The consistency (based on the two I have) is soft but powdery with a denser feel, almost like a part-powder, part-cream texture. I found that it did not apply as evenly as I expected and that typical highlighting brushes did not diffuse or buff the color in as well, and the formula worked a lot better with a dense blush brush. Once I switched up the tool, I found them easy to apply, but they are definitely denser and “thicker” compared to the average powder highlighter.

Tawny Glow

Bobbi Brown Tawny Glow Highlighting Powder ($48.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy copper with subtle, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It was richly pigmented with a finish that was noticeable but still more moderate than full-on metallic.

The formula is designed to give “high-impact, buildable radiance.” The finish was about the same whether I wore it with semi-sheer coverage or more opaque coverage, though if I applied the barest amount, then maybe I could see something subtle about the luminosity on my skin. The powder had a smooth, soft consistency–softer than a lot of similar formulations, where they can feel a smidgen dry to the touch, though they look lovely on!–that was easy to apply, blend out, and use on the skin. I found that the rosy tone of this came through more as I applied and blended out the product in practice than initially swatched. It wore well for nine hours on me before fading slightly.

Bobbi Brown Sunrise Glow Highlighting Powder ($48.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a light-medium pink with cooler undertones and warmer pink and gold shimmer along with faint gold sparkle. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out without trouble.

The formula is designed to give “high-impact, buildable radiance.” The finish was frosted to metallic with slight sparkle particles visible on the skin, but the more I buffed and blended the powder on my cheeks, the less I saw. It added a smidgen of noticeable color to my skin tone, but it may work more as a highlighting blush on lighter skin tones. The texture was soft, smooth, and not too dense nor so soft that it became powdery in the pan. The highlighter lasted for eight and a half hours on m e before fading.

White Goddess

J. Cat Beauty White Goddess You Glow Girl Baked Highlighter ($9.00 for 0.30 oz.) is a light, white gold with a cooler, whitish base paired with warmer, greenish-gold shimmer. The white base was more powdery, but it did not seem to be as present when blended and buffed onto my skin, though it may suit fairer complexions better due to the stronger white base.

The formula is described as a “multi-dimensional baked formula” that has “all day long” wear with an “intense shimmer pigment.” It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and yielded a fairly metallic finish on the skin, though I did not feel like it emphasized my skin’s natural texture. The texture was powdery with a drier quality that made the shimmer seem like it separated from the powder itself. This shade wore well for six and a half hours on me.

(I know they have a “Pink Goddess” shade, but I feel like the current name wasn’t quite thought out and wish they had gone with “Pearl” or “Gold Goddess.”)

Sunkissed Glow

Bobbi Brown Sunkissed Glow Highlighting Powder ($48.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium, golden bronze with warmer undertones and gold pearl and shimmer. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin.

The formula is designed to give “high-impact, buildable radiance.” I would better describe it as a moderate to metallic highlighter with a consistency that was soft and forgiving enough to be used with a light hand for less impact but a moderate hand and typical highlighter brush yielded a strong sheen. The finish was highly reflective but did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.
