Taffy

ColourPop Taffy Pressed Powder Highlighter ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a light-medium, golden peach with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. The texture was looser and a bit drier compared to some of the shades I’ve tried in the same formula. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with two to three layers. It yielded a strong shine but did not appear overtly shimmery and did not accentuate my skin’s natural texture. On me, the highlighter stayed on well for eight hours.

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.

Touche

ColourPop Touche Pressed Powder Highlighter ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a light peach with a sheen that shifted from warmer, yellow peacch to pink. It had good color payoff with a smooth, soft texture that was a touch powdery in the pan, but it applied evenly to bare skin, blended out well, and did not appear dry. The finish was a lot more subtle compared to most of the ColourPop powder highlighters I’ve tried, which some may prefer, but if you are after a more metallic finish, this won’t be it. It wore well for eight hours on me.

Touché is lovely for a nice, soft focus highlight, I think! Not sure what it will appear like on me, but I could probably find a way to make it work!

And here I am being cook pale ghost but love Taffy. Both! They sure look pretty! Taffy looks very similar to WetnWild Queen of my Canopy which is beautiful also! A bit darker than Precious Petals which is mite golden. Both are good!
