Morphe Lit High Impact Highlighter ($14.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a new, powder highlighter that’s available in six shades (at least, as of June ’18). I hope the brand will continue to extend the range with some cooler-hued highlighters and richer ones, too. A few shades (like Extra, Spark, and Stardust) had a softer sheen–more shine than shimmer–that I think might appeal to some, while other shades are intensely metallic and much more shimmery on the skin (like Mirage and Boom). The texture of the ones that weren’t quite as shimmery felt smooth, firmer and denser, but not stiff to work with, and I didn’t have any trouble applying or blending them out. The more shimmery shades felt creamier and denser but less firmly pressed in the pan, so it was even easier to pickup product with a typical, tapered highlighter brush. They wore well for eight to nine hours on me before fading.

Stardust

Morphe Stardust High Impact Highlighter ($14.00 for 0.28 oz.) has a cooler, light beige base with pink-to-violet shifting shimmer. There was a noticeable duochrome shift on the skin, though it looked more pink and lavender than beige at most angles. The consistency was smooth, firmer, and thin compared to other shades in the range, but it was soft enough to still pick up well with a highlighting brush and blended out without issue on my skin. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage and a moderate sheen rather than a frosted or metallic finish on my cheekbones. It didn’t emphasize my skin’s texutre at all. The color lasted well for eight hours before fading slightly.

Formula Overview

$14.00/0.28 oz. - $50.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have a "creamy" finish that is "weightless" that have an "explosive, prismatic effect." A few shades (like Extra, Spark, and Stardust) had a softer sheen--more shine than shimmer--that I think might appeal to some, while other shades are intensely metallic and much more shimmery on the skin (like Mirage and Boom). The texture of the ones that weren't quite as shimmery felt smooth, firmer and denser, but not stiff to work with, and I didn't have any trouble applying or blending them out. The more shimmery shades felt creamier and denser but less firmly pressed in the pan, so it was even easier to pickup product with a typical, tapered highlighter brush. They wore well for eight to nine hours on me before fading. One thing to note, I don't think the term "prismatic" is a good descriptor of these, a only one shade had true shift (Stardust was a duochrome), and I'm wondering if the brand understood the term before using it (as it's not a case where I can see an attempt at a duochrome--the range includes very standard highlighting shades).

Spark

Morphe Spark High Impact Highlighter ($14.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a soft, peachy gold with warm, orange undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage with a smooth, blendable texture that was firmer in the pan compared to other shades in the formula but was still soft enough that it was blendable in practice. It yielded a soft sheen on my skin that was less overtly shimmery compared to the other shades in the formula as well, so for those who like less shimmer and more shine, this might be a better option. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Mirage

Morphe Mirage High Impact Highlighter ($14.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium, coppery brown with warm, reddish undertones and a golden, metallic sheen. The highlighter had rich color payoff in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly on my skin. The consistency was soft, lightly creamy, and dense without being too firm or too thick in the pan. It blended out easily on my skin, and it didn’t accentuate my natural skin texture but was on the edge (to my eye) that it might be a concern for those with more textured skin. The color stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me.

Lit

Morphe Lit High Impact Highlighter ($14.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a pale gold with warm yellow undertones with a soft, frosted sheen. The powder had a smooth, velvety texture that was firmer but not too dense and still soft enough to pick up well with a tapered, highlighting brush. It had opaque color payoff that applied easily to bare skin and blended out with little effort. The effect was noticeable but stopped shy of emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours on me.

Extra

Morphe Extra High Impact Highlighter ($14.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a soft gold with strong, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. The pigmentation was opaque, while the texture was smooth, firmer (so not powderiness), but I didn’t have any trouble picking up product with a brush and applying and blending it out on my skin. The more I buffed it into my skin, the stronger the sheen became, which I did find emphasized my skin’s natural texture a bit (at heavier coverage). The color stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me beffore fading noticeably.
