Bobbi Brown Sunkissed Glow Highlighting PowderBobbi Brown Sunkissed Glow Highlighting Powder ($48.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium, golden bronze with warmer undertones and gold pearl and shimmer. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin.
The formula is designed to give “high-impact, buildable radiance.” I would better describe it as a moderate to metallic highlighter with a consistency that was soft and forgiving enough to be used with a light hand for less impact but a moderate hand and typical highlighter brush yielded a strong sheen. The finish was highly reflective but did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

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.
