Catrice’s Highlighting Powder is supposed to be “soft and velvety” that gives a “soft glow” to the skin and is available in two shades (I will review the other shade as well). The powder was soft and blendable with a lightly powdery consistency that kicked up excess product in the pan but did not look dry applied to the skin. It imparted a faint glowing finish that wasn’t metallic or shiny, so there were no issues with it emphasizing pores or my skin’s natural texture. It had good pigmentation that could easily be diffused or sheered out, if desired. The highlighter wore well for seven hours before fading on me. One thing I noticed is that it has a stronger, powdery smell to it.
