ColourPop Total Package Pressed Powder Highlighter ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium, rosy copper with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The texture was slightly looser in the pan, so there was some excess powder that was kicked up in the pan after using it with a brush, though it did not appear dry or dusty on the skin. There were slightly larger sparkles in the finish, too, so it would be ideal for someone who likes a more shimmery finish in their highlighter/blush. When applied as sheer to medium coverage, it sat well on the skin but at fuller ocverage, it emphasized my skin’s natural texture slightly. It was richly pigmented and very blendable, while the formula lasted eight hours on my skin before fading.

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.
