Benefit Tickle Box o’ Powder Highlighter ($30.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a brighter, bubblegum pink base with heavy, golden shimmer that gave it a more metallic finish. The interplay between the cooler-toned pink base with the warmer, golden shimmer gave it a more contrasting appearance when applied to my skin, so it looked like I applied both a blush and highlighter together. I wish we saw more of these types of products on the market because they do some double duty!
The consistency was smooth, silky, and almost cream-like as it wasn’t powdery yet it yielded and picked up well on my brush. The powder applied evenly and blended out with little effort, though a little went a long way as it was quite pigmented. The highlighter had a luminous sheen that stopped shy of pore-emphasizing territory when worn at full coverage. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably on me.
