Glitzen

Give Me Glow Glitzen Pressed Highlighter ($17.25 for 0.28 oz.) is a bright, medium copper with strong, warm undertones and a golden, metallic finish. The texture was soft, silky-smooth, and more fragile, so the powder was quick to release and did so in slight “clumps” rather than finer powder as there was a lot of binder in the product. I’d recommend using a less-dense brush and gently tapping the surface rather than doing a more moderate swirling action.

It was intensely pigmented where a little went a long way. Once on my skin, the powder “melted” slightly and blended out with little effort, and it did not accentuate the look of my skin texture. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$17.25/0.28 oz. - $61.61 Per Ounce

The formula is described as being "finely-milled," "highly pigmented," "non-glittery," and as having "extreme shine." They are incredibly intense, highly metallic, and very richly pigmented highlighters. If you're someone who prefers a softer sheen, more buildable highlighters, or tends to be heavier handed, this formula may not be a good fit. If you're someone who can't get enough shimmer and shine and prefers very pigmented cheek products, this formula will deliver.

The finish ranged from lightly metallic to intensely metallic, and as a result, some shades were more prone to emphasizing my skin texture when worn at more medium to semi-opaque (or higher) coverage. Most shades were fully opaque with very little product needed--a little went a long way for sure! They were not glittery, as the shimmer was geneerally finer and lived up more to the "extreme shine" claim made by the brand.

The consistency was smooth, almost cream-like, and had a fragility to it that made me prefer using a brush that was more rounded and then tapping it against the surface or lightly swirling but no pushing forward or else I felt I got way too much product for a single application. If you're familiar with the brand's eyeshadows, the highlighters felt similar to me, just with a slightly less firm press in comparison. For most shades, they applied evenly and blended out without much effort.

The shades lasted between eight and nine hours on me before showing signs of fading.
