Conceited

Artist Couture Conceited Diamond Glow Powder ($27.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a more muted, deeper gold with a warm, coppery base with a golden, metallic sheen that also had a dusting of golden sparkle. One layer of product had nearly opaque coverage with a moderate, shiny finish that was glowing, lightly shimmery but not in pore-emphasizing territory. A second layer built up the sheen to a more metallic finish that seemed to emphasize my skin’s natural texture just slightly.

The texture was soft, finely-milled and lighter-weight (so it could be messier if one isn’t familiar with working with loose powder) but had good adhesion and spread well across my skin. It stayed on nicely for seven and a half hours before fading a bit.

Formula Overview

$27.00/0.16 oz. - $168.75 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed have a buildable glow, so you can have a "subtle, luminous sheen" or build it up for an "intense, amplified look." They can also be applied to eyes and lips if desired. They appear to be opaque in promotional swatches and imagery, which was what I also found while testing; they were semi-opaque to opaque, though as a loose product, one could simply use the smallest amount to get something sheerer.

The powder was very finely-milled, which helped it spread well on bare skin and not emphasize my skin's natural texture. It seemed to have a shinier finish, while still being noticeably shimmery/sparkly, and the glow could be built up to intensely metallic if desired. I liked to pick up product on a tapered highlighting brush and gently swirl the brush on the underside of the lid, which helped to evenly distribute the product on my brush.

They wore between seven and eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Looks very nice on, but it’s such a common shade of highlighter that I actually have several dupes. So that’s a nope from me.

It looks really pretty on you, Christine but not a shade or depth for me. I am off buying highlighters for a while. I have so many and don’t use them often since our pandemic so an easy pass for me.
