Chill Pill

Colour Pop Chill Pill Luster Dust Loose Highlighter ($7.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a light pink with subtle, warm undertones and multi-colored pearl. It had more of a “matte” base powder and finer pearl, so it ended up having a more subtle finish than the original Luster Dusts. I think anyone who prefers a soft glow will find it to their liking, but if you want something intense or shiny, look elsewhere. It had semi-sheer, buildable pigmentation when I swatched it on my arm, but when I applied it with a tapered highlighting blush, just one tap into the pot seemed to yield semi-opaque coverage.

I find that this formula applies more intensely on my cheeks, which are less dry, compared to my arm, which is drier. This particular shade was one where that was most certainly true, and my guess was due to the more powdery/matte base. The consistency worked well on my cheeks and blended out easily and left behind a subtle, pinkish glow (just one pat of product in the face photo!). It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading.

Formula Overview

$7.00/0.106 oz. - $66.04 Per Ounce

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.

I actually like this a LOT! I’m always trying to pink myself up a bit during cooler weather, so this looks like a nice option! Probably less bizarre than my adding a light peachy-pink luminizer to my foundation 😉
