Colour Pop Trickles Pressed Powder Highlighter ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a light-medium lavender with warm, pink undertones and a cool, violet pearl. It had semi-opaque coverage, which was somewhat buildable, but the texture was incredibly dense and tended to apply unevenly as the product clumped up on the skin. It was actually a powder that applied better with a synthetic brush or fingertips rather than a natural hair, fluffy brush as it needed more to break up and smooth out the powder. The highlighter stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.23 oz. - $34.78 Per Ounce

The powder highlighter is supposed to have a "high-shine" finish with "high colour intensity." In general, ColourPop's pressed highlighter powders have a smooth, moderately dense texture that was soft enough to be picked up easily by a brush but not kick up any powder in the pan. The formula was semi-opaque to opaque but easily sheered out for less shine and coverage if desired. There were a few shades within the range that emphasized my skin's natural texture slightly but most did not. The wear ranged from seven and a half hours to nine hours.

Colour Pop Starflower Pressed Powder Highlighter ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium gold with warm, orange undertones and a metallic sheen. The consistency was soft, smooth, and almost cream-like as it was a denser powder without any powderiness or excess product that kicked up in the pan. It had opaque coverage but was forgiving, so I could easily blend out the powder for sheerer coverage if desired. The highlighter wore well for eight and a half hours on me.

Perfect

Cover FX Perfect 6-Pan Highlighting Palette ($39.00 for 0.66 oz.) includes six powder highlighters housed in a slim, plastic compact. The formula is supposed to be “ultra silky” and “highly pigmented.” I’d argue that the texture of the shades included in the palette felt creamier and denser than the standalone powder highlighters by the same formula name, and I found myself enjoying the feel and look of these even more than the standalone formula. All six shades were blendable, pigmented, long-wearing, and flattering on–I was surprised at how metallic some of them appeared on my skin yet did not seem to bring attention to my natural texture.

Value

The Perfect Light Highlighting Powders retail for $34.00 and contain 0.28 oz. when purchased individually (only one shade in the set is available individually, though) or cost $121.43/oz. The palette contains $80.14 worth of product.

Dior Precious Rocks (001) Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer ($57.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a soft, peachy beige with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, but the consistency was incredibly smooth, velvety, and finely-milled, so it was easy to sheer out if desired. The powder sat well on the skin and yielded a smooth, luminous sheen–somewhere between subtle and moderate in terms of reflectiveness. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading slightly.

Apres Ski Glow

Becca Apres Ski Glow Glow Face Palette ($54.00 for 0.54 oz.) contains two blushes, one bronzer, and three highlighters. Two shades–Icicle and Winter Berry–are new and exclusive to the palette, while the rest are available individually. I do not think that the quality of the powders in the palette is the same as the full-sized range; some perform worse but they felt different: drier, more papery. It’s always a shame when a brand changes up their formulas when they put them in a palette for the worse.

Nose Pose

MAC Nose Pose Cream Colour Base Duo ($22.00 for 0.15 oz.) seems to be a highlighting/contouring duo, but of course, it’s very “one-size” and will certainly not fit all or even most. The darker side seemed more like a bronzing color than a contouring one, though some with very warm complexions may prefer the warmth in the deeper shade for contouring. They can also be used on the eyes, as the formula is a multi-use one.
