Gimme More

ColourPop Gimme More Pressed Powder Highlighter Palette ($18.00 for 0.78 oz.) includes six highlighters in a slim, cardboard palette. It is new and limited edition, and presently sold out, but the palette will be restocked at a future date. The brand’s Pressed Powder Highlighter formula is supposed to have a “high-shine” finish with “butter-soft powders” that have “high colour intensity.” All six were denser with some having a very creamy, smooth consistency and a couple felt sparklier and not as smooth to the touch. They varied between frosted to sparkly but were certainly more intense highlighters. On me, most of the shades lasted for eight to nine hours. Overall, while they did not have the best texture throughout when swatched, they seemed to sit better on the skin after being diffused and blended.

Extra

Extra is a pale, white gold with a cooler, white base and warmer, golden shimmer and larger sparkle. The high-shine finish did not seem to accentuate my skin’s natural texture. The consistency was dense with a chunkier texture–I could really feel the bits of sparkle throughout it–and it took slightly more effort to buff and blend out the highlighter evenly. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that wore well for eight hours on me.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.23 oz. - $34.78 Per Ounce

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.

Upgrade

Upgrade is a very light, pinky-peach with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had good color coverage that applied better on the cheeks than I expected, given the drier, more sparkly texture. When worn at greater than medium coverage, it emphasized my skin’s natural texture slightly. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours on me.

Bottomless

Bottomless is a medium orange with warm undertones and lighter, brighter orange-gold shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The consistency was smooth, dense, and creamy to the touch, but you’ll want to use a denser brush (or heavier hand) with it. I noticed slight fading after nine hours of wear.

Full Service

Full Service is a light-medium pink with strong, warm undertones and golden sparkle. It had semi-sheer color payoff that was buildable to medium coverage. This was rather faint on me, and the color base did not come through strongly for me, though it still highlighted the skin as it was very shimmery. The texture was drier to the touch and seemed to be chunkier overall. This shade wore well for eight hours on me.

Bigger and Better

Bigger and Better is a light-medium gold with warm, orange undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The pigmentation was mostly opaque, while the texture was soft, a little loose in the pan with noticeably larger sparkles in it, but it blended out well on the skin. It did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture, even when worn more heavily. The highlighter stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours.

Total Package

Total Package is a medium-dark copper with warm, brown undertones and a metallic finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer with a smooth, moderately dense consistency that was blendable on the skin and adhered evenly, but I would recommend a denser brush to pickup product better. I noticed this shade lightened up the more I buffed and blended it out. On me, it wore well for eight and a half hours.

Thanks for the review! Question though…Is Total Package supposed to be graded a D+? The grade has a zero for pigmentation but your review said it was opaque with one pass… I love all your reviews… Keep up the good work!

What a shame Service did not perform as well as expected, because is a beautiful base shade. A tad too orangey for me overall, but lovely nonetheless.

I just knew it! Total Package would have Might Be as a dupe, and a pretty close one at that! Since I’m duped up on at least 4, possibly 5 of these shades, I would get it, but not for myself. Possibly as a little sumthin sumthin fory daughter, though? ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
