Ciate Starburst Glow-To Highlighter ($29.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a light gold with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had a high-shine finish even with a sheerer application, though it was not truly metallic until medium or greater coverage.

The formula is supposed to be an “ultra-soft luminizer” with “long-wear” and built-up to “intense, bold shimmer.” The texture was soft, smooth, and a smidgen dusty to the touch, though it did not appear dry on the skin and didn’t have much excess product kicked up in the pan after using it. It had medium coverage, which was buildable to semi-opaque coverage with two to three layers. It was easy to blend out the highlighter, and while very metallic, it seemed to reach to the point where the shine made my skin appear smooth instead of emphasizing my skin’s natural texture.

Melonade

Dose of Colors Melonade Supreme Glow Highlighter ($28.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy coral with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation, which was buildable on the skin for semi-opaque coverage. The consistency was firmer but still that creamier, denser powder that required a heavier hand or denser brush to really buff and blend out the color across the skin for even coverage and diffused edges. On my skin tone, this particular shade had a tendency to disappear so it may not be as detectable in photos as I would have liked but there’s a hint of color on the apples of my cheeks. The sheen was noticeable but did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It wore well for eight hours on before fading slightly.

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 Gold is the New Black). 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.

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).

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.
