Colour Pop Aura Voir Luster Dust Loose Highlighter ($7.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium, coppery orange with warm undertones and fine, gold and copper pearl. It had medium, buildable coverage, though the shine itself was high-shine to truly blinding. The texture was soft, finely-milled, and easy to blend out on the skin. Despite the high-shine finish, it seemed to create the illusion of smoother skin rather than accentuating the texture of my natural skin.
Though the powder was blendable, I noticed if I picked up product with my brush without tapping away excess or swirling the brush lightly inside the cap of the product, the initial laydown of product was a bit splotchy–it blended right out–but if I swirled first, it applied evenly and barely needed any blending. It wore well for eight hours on me.

The formula is supposed to be a "finely-milled, soft powder" that "packs a blinding punch" where "a little goes a long way." These can be incredibly shiny and metallic on the skin, and the coverage seemed to be all in the application. They actually seemed to be more pigmented when I applied them to my cheekbones using a tapered highlighter than when I used smaller brushes (for eyes) on my forearm. The powders were finely-milled with some base color and a lot of shimmer/pearl. I found the best way to apply these was to pick up product onto a brush and then swirl my brush on the interior of the cap, which helped to disperse the powder more evenly through my brush. This resulted in more even application to my cheeks that required less buffing and blending than if I skipped the swirling step. They lasted around eight hours on me.
