ColourPop Bae Area Pressed Powder Highlighter ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a rich, medium copper with warm, brown undertones and a golden, metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented and had a smooth, almost cream-like texture that was incredibly blendable and easy to apply to the skin. The high-shine finish seemed to emphasize my skin’s texture a bit at medium or greater coverage, though. On me, it wore well for eight and a half hours 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.

Becca Smoky Quartz Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed ($38.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a muted, medium, rosy copper with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It seemed less metallic compared to other highlighters in the range, which may or may not be your cup of tea. It yielded a strong, noticeable glow on the skin that didn’t accentuate my natural skin texture but was still a stronger highlight. On my complexion, there was some warmth (without being orange-based) and color, so I would expect it to be more of a highlighting bronzer or blush on very fair skin tones and more of a sheen on deeper skin tones. The consistency was soft, smooth, and blendable without being dusty in the pan. The pigmentation was opaque and appeared a bit darker swatched and applied than it did in the pan. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

Formula Overview

$38.00/0.28 oz. - $135.71 Per Ounce

The Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed formula is described as having an "ultra-reflective shine" with a "creamy" texture that "applies seamlessly." In general, the texture of the highlighters is incredibly smooth, silky, and finely-milled with frosted to metallic finishes and the occasional more sparkly finish. They tend to have a high-shine, more metallic finish and are a stronger highlighter, so they are going to be best suited to someone who likes an obvious highlight over a very subtle one. That being said, with a fan brush and a deft hand, one could certainly achieve a subtler, all-over luminosity as well, but if one takes a typical, tapered highlighting brush, there will be quite a bit of pigment and highlight on the skin. I find that some shades can emphasize the look of pores slightly to moderately, depending on application. They tend to last between eight to nine hours on me.

Lilac Geode

Becca Lilac Geode Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed ($38.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a light-medium pink with cooler undertones paired with warmer, golden shimmer. On my complexion, it ended up translating to a warmer color overall, though on cooler skin tones, the blue in the base might come through more prominently. It had excellent pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and blendable consistency that wasn’t too soft nor was it too firm in the pan. The highlighter was easy to work with using a myriad of brushes and could be applied more lightly just by using a lighter hand or less dense brush. It had a more metallic, high-shine finish on the skin at medium or greater coverage, though it did not emphasize my skin’s texture to my eye. On me, it stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading slightly.

ColourPop Here Kitty Kitty Pressed Powder Highlighter ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a light, golden peach with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It was intensely pigmented and had a soft, smooth consistency that wasn’t too firm or too soft in the pan, which made it a cinch to apply and work with on the skin. The shimmer in this particular shade seemed finer than what I’ve seen through a lot of the other ones in the range, and I think for those who like a very shiny, reflective highlighter, this would be one to consider. I didn’t feel like it emphasized my skin’s natural texture, and at some angles, the high-shine finish seemed to “smooth” out my skin. The highlighter wore well for almost nine hours before fading noticeably.

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.

ColourPop Boujee Call Pressed Powder Highlighter ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a light gold with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It appeared a lot darker and more peach-toned in the pan but all I could see swatched and applied to my cheeks was gold. The texture had a smooth, moderately firm feel to it, and it took a heavier hand to get product onto my brush (or alternatively, use a denser brush). I had no trouble diffusing or blending out the edges of the highlighter on my skin, though, and there was no excess product kicked up in the pan as it was denser. It had good pigmentation, which was buildable to full coverage with a second layer but easily worn at sheerer coverage if desired. On me, the highlighter stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading slightly.

ColourPop Freak Like Me Pressed Powder Highlighter ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium copper with warm, orange undertones and a frosted, slightly metallic finish. It had opaque pigmentation that was easy to work with on the skin whether I wanted sheer, more diffused coverage or a more intense, ultra-metallic finish. The more I sheered it out, the more golden and less orange-brown it looked on my skin tone. The powder had a soft, smooth consistency that was a little creamy and on the denser side, but it was never difficult to pick up with a brush or to blend out on the skin. The shimmery finish did not seem to emphasize my skin’s natural texture. This shade lasted well for eight and a half hours on me.
