Clionadh Breaker Powder Highlighter ($15.00 for 0.21 oz.) has a transparent base with iridescent, cool violet shimmer and faint sparkle throughout. It had a moderately metallic sheen on my skin, though it was very smooth and reflective, so it didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture.
The texture was soft, smooth, and lightly creamy in the pan, which helped the product adhere evenly to my skin and look more seamless as I buffed and blended it on my skin. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that lasted nicely for eight and a half hours before showing signs of wear.

There's not much that describes the formula other than it has a "soft, buildable application." They tended to be quite pigmented--semi-opaque to fully opaque--with soft, smoother textures that weren't too dense nor too softly-pressed into the pan. For sheerer or more buildable application, I'd highly recommend using a lighter hand a less-dense brush to do so.
The texture was typically smooth, slightly dense and a bit thicker than most powder highlighters on the market, so they often needed to be really buffed and diffused on the skin. The finishes were often more intense, leaning toward metallic, and occasionally, they emphasized my skin's natural texture when worn at higher coverage levels. They wore between eight and nine hours on me for the most part.
