Solstice

Ciate Solstice Glow-To Highlighter ($29.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a pale pink with a frosted sheen that shifted from cooler lavender to warmer pink. The shimmer was larger in the highlighter, and I felt like it made it more prone to emphasizing my skin’s natural texture as a result. When diffused and blended out to medium coverage, I did not find it noticeably accentuating, though. It had good pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer.

The powder was soft, smooth, and blendable overall with a bit of looseness in the pan. I noticed that the whiter base was more prominent when I applied and blended it out on my skin than initially swatched, so it ended up looking a bit lighter than anticipated on my skin tone. I did see the duochrome effect in person, so it appeared cooler and warmer depending on the angle I viewed the highlighter at. The color wore well for eight hours on me before becoming a bit patchy.

Formula Overview

$29.00/0.17 oz. - $170.59 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be an “ultra-soft luminizer” with “long-wear” and built-up to “intense, bold shimmer.” The powders were usually soft and blendable, though a couple were a little looser in the pan, which made them feel drier or dustier.

They were easy to blend and diffuse on the skin and lasted for eight hours, on average. The more sparkly shades emphasized my skin's natural texture a bit while the more luminous shades did not.

Rainbow

Ciate Rainbow Mermaid Glow ($32.00 for 0.32 oz.) is a pale, silvery white with a luminous sheen. The strips of colors are rather thin, so it wasn’t really pratical to use them individually, and when I attempted to get more of a gradient, they just all seemed to wash together regardless to a single shade (silvery white).

The consistency was smooth with a slightly denser feel compared to the Glow-To Highlighters from the brand. There was no powderiness in the pan, and the powder sat exceptionally well on the skin–soft, luminous, and never drew attention to my skin’s texture. It had a stronger, white base, so I would be wary of this on deeper complexions as it could turn ashy, but for those with very fair complexions, I imagine it would be quite suitable. The highlighter was easy to diffuse and blend out on the skin with good pigmentation and a buildable luminosity. It lasted for eight hours on me before fading.

Celestial

Ciate Celestial Glow-To Highlighter ($29.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium-dark gold with warm, orange undertones and a frosted, sparkling finish. The consistency was soft, a little dry in the pan, and did not bind as well when I applied and blended out the powder on my skin. I felt like the shimmer particles were larger and definitely were more prone to emphasizing my skin’s natural texture compared to the brand’s initial releases in this formula, though it certainly wasn’t the worst offender in that department and only when worn at semi-opaque or greater coverage. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The highlighter stayed on well for eight hours on me.

Candy

Ciate Candy Glitter Flip ($19.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a faint, pink sparkle. It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer, which went on evenly for the most part with a bit of color separating at my deeper lip lines. This was the least transformative/least sparkly shade in the range and went from more like a satin finish to a faintly glittery one after pressing my lips together. It was easier to apply from the tube as it did not seem quite as fluid as a lot of shades in the range were. It was medium in weight, somewhat clingy, and lightly drying after four and a half hours of wear.

Formula Overview

$19.00/0.1 oz. - $190.00 Per Ounce

The Glitter Flip formula is supposed to be a transformative "glitter liquid lipstick," where it goes from lightly metallic at dry down to glitter-tastic after pressing lips together. For most shades, there was a definite difference in finish after pressing lips together, but I found that it required two to three presses (and too many more resulted in product lifting away) for moderate to heavy glitter exposure. The pigmentation ranged from shade to shade but was typically more opaque than not. The formula itself is heavy--one of the heavier liquid lipsticks I've tried in awhile--and the liquid lipstick itself was incredibly fluid during application, which made it harder to control along the edges. It dried down fairly quickly, and while the edges were a challenge, it wasn't too difficult to apply overall.

The brand touts it as "non-drying" and "totally comfortable" and that it "will last all night." It was a drying formula--from lightly to moderately drying--and felt dry and heavy on the lips (I think it felt worse than it often looked!), while the wear ranged from four to six hours. The way it wore was probably a bigger concern: heavier fading from the center of the mouth but noticeable flaking and chunks of color/glitter coming away after a few hours of wear (especially if I ate anything).

It's a cool product, and absolutely true that they were less work than layering a glitter over another a product, especially if you prefer a more "matte metallic" finish (would be harder to get glitter to stick to a flat, matte lipstick!). I think they will be best for someone who uses a lip liner prior, doesn't mind fussing with the edges, and has been longing for a finish like this--but only if one can tolerate a drying product!
