Bobbi Brown Opal Glow Highlighting Powder ($48.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium, dusty pink with warm, multi-colored sparkle and pearl. The consistency felt more sparkly compared to other shades in the formula, as there were larger sparkle/shimmer particles throughout. It had medium, buildable coverage, both in terms of color as well as the intensity of the shine/shimmer. The consistency was dense and smooth, so there wasn’t any excess powder kicked up in the pan, but it was a cinch to pick up product with my brush. The powder applied evenly to my skin, diffused nicely, and did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. On me, it wore well for eight and a half hours.

The formula is designed to give “high-impact, buildable radiance.” Most shades had medium or more intense pigmentation with moderate to intense shimmer, as some shades were more metallic and/or had fine sparkles. However, the powder buffs and diffuses particularly well and has a tendency to "melt" a bit more on the skin as a result. The texture was soft, smooth, and not too dense nor so soft that it became powdery in the pan. This formula typically lasted eight hours or so on my skin.
