Freak Like Me
ColourPop Freak Like Me Pressed Powder Highlighter ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium copper with warm, orange undertones and a frosted, slightly metallic finish. It had opaque pigmentation that was easy to work with on the skin whether I wanted sheer, more diffused coverage or a more intense, ultra-metallic finish. The more I sheered it out, the more golden and less orange-brown it looked on my skin tone. The powder had a soft, smooth consistency that was a little creamy and on the denser side, but it was never difficult to pick up with a brush or to blend out on the skin. The shimmery finish did not seem to emphasize my skin’s natural texture. This shade lasted well for eight and a half hours on me.

The powder highlighter is supposed to have a "high-shine" finish with "high colour intensity." In general, ColourPop's pressed highlighter powders have a smooth, moderately dense texture that was soft enough to be picked up easily by a brush but not kick up any powder in the pan. The formula was semi-opaque to opaque but easily sheered out for less shine and coverage if desired. There were a few shades within the range that emphasized my skin's natural texture slightly but most did not. The wear ranged from seven and a half hours to nine hours.
