Colour Pop Starflower Pressed Powder Highlighter ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium gold with warm, orange undertones and a metallic sheen. The consistency was soft, smooth, and almost cream-like as it was a denser powder without any powderiness or excess product that kicked up in the pan. It had opaque coverage but was forgiving, so I could easily blend out the powder for sheerer coverage if desired. The highlighter wore 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.
