Coloured Raine Luxurious Bling Focal Point Glowlighter ($25.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a pale white with a peach to pink duochrome shift. The consistency was soft but powdery, and it looked slightly chalky against my skin tone when I tried it. When I layered it over a more noticeable blush or bronzer, then I could enjoy the shift without the base coming through so much. It had semi-sheer, buildable pigmentation (up to semi-opaque) that lasted for eight hours on me before turning patchy.
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.

No Flash Needed
Coloured Raine No Flash Needed Focal Point Glowlighter ($25.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a bright, white gold with a cooler, white base and warmer, greenish-gold shimmer. It had good pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with ease. The consistency felt denser and firmer in the pan, but it also felt creamy–more like silicone-based eyeshadow formulas that have become more popular over the last couple of years. I’ve found that this type of formula works best with denser brushes rather than a really soft, feathery brush or an ultra-light hand. The white base of this shade was noticeable, so it sometimes looked grayish against my skin tone; for me, I would pair it with a blush or bronzer to make it work (in terms of color). This shad stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me.
