Holographic Beams

Milani Holographic Beams Stellar Lights Highlighter Palette ($13.00 for 0.42 oz.) includes a beige with a pink-to-violet duochrome sheen, iridescent bluish-white, and a rich orange. I wish they had opted for a cooler plum or lavender instead of the orange, as it would have made it a cool-toned complement to the Rosy Glow trio (which is definitely all warm-toned!). I liked the trio, and all three shades were easy to apply and blend out, but two of the three shades weren’t “richly pigmented” as described.

Rose Glow

Milani Rose Glow Stellar Lights Highlighter Palette ($13.00 for 0.42 oz.) contains a light, white gold, rich gold, and coppery orange with shiny to metallic finishes. As long as a bit of mess in the palette isn’t a deal-breaker, it’s decent. Where it shines (ha, ha) is in how blendable the powders were on my skin, but they could have been a bit more pigmented (per the brand’s description) and had smoother, less dry textures.

Flashing Lights

Milani Flashing Lights Hypnotic Lights Powder Highlighter ($12.99 for 0.30 oz.) is a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a gold-to-orange shifting shimmer. It had a luminous finish on my skin–glowing but not overtly shimmery or metallic–so it was easy to apply and never have to worry about emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation. On my complexion, it was a subtle highlighter and blusher. The powder was smooth, soft without being powdery, and blendable. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

Formula Overview

$12.99/0.30 oz. - $43.30 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "silky-smooth" and have a "subtle, iridescent glow." Subtle is right on the money; they have an ethereal glow that's there but not blaring, and there's really a sea of intense, metallic highlighters on the market, so seeing something on the subtle end of the spectrum was refreshing. The powders had a soft, smooth, slightly dense consistency, but they did not feel stiff nor were they difficult to pickup with a brush. They blended out easily on the skin, sat well, and yielded a lit-from-within kind of glow. On me, they lasted for eight hours.

Luster Light

Milani Luster Light Hypnotic Lights Powder Highlighter ($12.99 for 0.30 oz.) is a soft beige with a subtle, pink-to-peach shift and satin finish. The key with this highlighter is subtle; this is one for those who have longed for a shift but without a metallic sheen. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, but it could easily be applied with a lighter hand for sheerer coverage if desired. The powder was soft, smooth, and blendable without being too firmly or too loosely pressed in the pan, so it was easy to apply and blend out on my cheeks. Despite having less shimmer, it was still glowing on the skin and never looked powdery or too flat/dry. On me, it wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Luminous Light

Milani Luminous Light Hypnotic Lights Powder Highlighter ($12.99 for 0.30 oz.) is a light pink with pink-to-lavender shifting, ultra-fine pearl paired with a satin finish. I found it looked cooler-toned and more lavender applied and blended out on my cheekbones than it appeared in the pan. It had good pigmentation, which was buildable to full coverage with half of layer more, but it was also easy to sheer out if preferred. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable without being too firmly or too losely pressed in the pan. The powder applied easily and sat well on my skin. It wore for eight hours before I noticed signs of fading.
