It’s a new, limited edition highlighter version of their blush formula, which “can be worn alone or over any Joues Contraste blush.” Worth noting is that while it appears to be in the same-sized compact as the blushes, it contains less at 0.09 oz. (while the blushes contain 0.21 oz.). The texture of the highlighting powder is incredibly soft, silky, and smooth to the touch and blends effortlessly on the skin. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable coverage that gave the skin a soft glow without emphasizing pores. It doesn’t add color on my skin tone, though much fairer complexions may find it adds a little color. The powder lasted for seven and a half hours on me before fading.
