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.

Sadly, this one would clash horribly with my olive undertones…as a face highlighter, but it would look fantastic as an inner lid eyeshadow or tearduct highlight!
Hi Nancy! I am olive too and I thought this would be great on since it’s cool toned. Which color blushes do you go for?
Hi Estefani! I tend to wear everything except bubblegum/Barbie pinks. Love tawny and terracotta shades, warm pinks and mauves, plums, corals, even a red or orange occasionally. And one purple even! UD Bittersweet Afterglow Blush which is sadly discontinued along with the whole range of those blushes. In other words, everything but blue-based shades. Bittersweet may be purple, but definitely not bluish.
This looks so pretty and cute . Plus I love Lavender highlighters !
I was hoping this was was light and icy enough to look pink on the skin but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Glad I waited for your review because I’m not a fan of purple highlights.
