bareMinerals Whimsy Endless Glow Highlighter ($29.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a pale, iridescent white with pink-to-lavender shifting pearl and faint sparkle. It did have some whiteness in its base, so it may not be suitable for all skin tones unless layered over other, richer products or really sheered out. The powder had an incredibly smooth, lightly creamy texture–more like a cream-powder hybrid–that applied evenly and blended out effortlessly. The pigmentation was nearly opaque in a single layer but easy to control with pressure/brush density, which made it a more versatile product. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before I noticed any fading.

It's supposed to be "long-lasting" with "8-hour wear" with a formula that "instantly minimizes the appearance of pores" while giving "lit-from-within luminosity." The shades I tried had good pigmentation with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was slightly powdery but applied well to bare skin and blended out without issues. They had more of a moderate-level of luminosity--shimmery but not metallic. They wore for eight hours on me, which was as marketed, before fading noticeably.
