Coloured Raine Cutie Pie & Lavender Dreams Focal Point Glowlighters Reviews, Photos, Swatches

Cutie Pie

Coloured Raine Cutie Pie Focal Point Glowlighter ($25.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a light-medium pink with warmer undertones and cooler, lavender pearl. It had medium pigmentation, which was buildable to semi-opaque coverage with two layers. The texture was chunkier and did not seem as finely-milled as most shades in the range, and it was quite dense. I had to use a heavier hand with a blush brush to get medium coverage with one swirl in the compact. The color shifted from a pinkish white to a more noticeable pinkish hue on my skin tone, depending on the angle and how the light was reflecting off of my cheeks (that is why you’ll see two full face photos with shade as it was such a dramatic shift). The highlighter lasted for eight and a half hours on me.

The Focal Point Glowlighter formula is supposed to be “butter soft” with “high impact luminous glow.” There are eight shades available from pale duochromes to deep copperS (view all swatches here). The formula was denser, firmer, and a little creamier than the average powder highlighter, so fluffy, less dense brushes had trouble picking up a lot of product, whereas denser highlighting brushes and blush brushes picked up product just fine. Most of the shades were quite smooth in feel with medium to full coverage and a strong, reflective shine on the skin and lasted for eight to nine hours. If you’re someone who likes buildable highlighters from medium to opaque with a metallic sheen, these might be right up your alley.

Lavender Dreams

Coloured Raine Lavender Dreams Focal Point Glowlighter ($25.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a light, lavender purple with cool, violet undertones and soft, pearly sheen. It had medium, buildable pigmentation–up to semi-opaque–with a smooth, blendable consistency that was slightly denser and firmer in the pan. With a tapered highlighting brush, I had no trouble applying and blending out the highlighter but a fan brush would be too feathery for the formula. Despite being rather reflective on the skin, it did not seem to emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading.

Very pretty shades!
Cutie Pie took me aback with its potent shift! But its quality seems a bit iffy… possibly something I could still work with, though.
As for Lavender Dreams, purple highlighters can look quite *off* on me. Seems as if anything extreme in coolness or super warm looks odd on me, Idk?

I have similar issues – anything super cool-toned (but not in the neutralish family, say gray or brown) can be harder to wear.

It’s a pity Cutie Pie is a bit chunky, the colour and the shift is quite mesmerizing.
Lavender Dream is lovely, I’m going to check all the dupes for it, and take a look at my little collection, I feel I have something sort of like it, but I’m not sure.
I think I should remember everything I own, but I don’t. Does that mean I have to much makeup?! 😀

I wish Cutie Pie was smoother, too, Helene!

You probably have some idea of what you have but may not always remember every last detail! There are so many things we have to remember!

Ahh too bad about Cutie Pie, I had my eye on that one. I might just get the Laura Gellar dupe then.

Hmmm. It’s as if they realize the market has been absolutely flooded with highlighters lately, so they’re calling these glowlighters. What’s next, shinelighters? Gleamlighters? Lumilighters??

I think lots of brands give their highlighters unique names (Becca’s is a mouthful — Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed!) – I don’t think they are trying to say they aren’t highlighters!
