ColourPop x Shayla Pose Luster Dust Loose Highlighter Review, Photos, Swatches
ColourPop Pose Luster Dust Loose Highlighter ($7.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy copper with warm undertones and a soft, metallic sheen. It had buildable coverage from semi-sheer to opaque depending on how much product was picked up with the brush–it being a loose format made results very dependent on tool and technique compared to the typical pressed powder. The texture was silky and finely-milled and blended out fairly well with good, even adhesion that lasted for eight hours on me.

The formula is supposed to be a "finely-milled, soft powder" that "packs a blinding punch" where "a little goes a long way." These can be incredibly shiny and metallic on the skin, and the coverage seemed to be all in the application. They actually seemed to be more pigmented when I applied them to my cheekbones using a tapered highlighter than when I used smaller brushes (for eyes) on my forearm. The powders were finely-milled with some base color and a lot of shimmer/pearl. I found the best way to apply these was to pick up product onto a brush and then swirl my brush on the interior of the cap, which helped to disperse the powder more evenly through my brush. This resulted in more even application to my cheeks that required less buffing and blending than if I skipped the swirling step. They lasted around eight hours on me.

I’m liking this one far more than I had expected. For me, this would be a good, solid bronzing blush with its own built in highlight. One and done!
Beautiful. Perfection with the eye look.
That does look nice – I really like the finish on these.
