Chocolate Opal

Haus Labs Chocolate Opal Bio-Radiant Highlighter ($40.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a rich, coppery brown with warm, red undertones and a smooth, luminous sheen.

  • Opaque coverage
  • Gel-powder formula: firm but not stiff
  • Picked up well with dry brush, blendable
  • Long-wearing (9-10 hours was typical)

Formula Overview

$40.00/0.42 oz. - $95.24 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to apply "seamlessly" with "radiant, next gen glow" that lasts for "up to 12 hours." It featured a gel-powder hybrid formula, so the feel of the powder was on the firmer side, but it wasn't stiff. There was no powderiness, and I had no issues picking up product with more feathery, less-dense fan brushes or more traditional tapered highlighting brushes.

The shades were typically semi-opaque to opaque in coverage and easily applied with a lighter hand. The powder sat well on bare skin as well as on top of foundation, and it had a "melted" look that helped the powder sit seamlessly. They wore nine to 10 hours on me, so not quite the 12-hours claimed but longer-wearing than average.

Woah.
I’m still not purchasing anything from celebrity brands – especially the ones that feel very “the money men did all the work and now we just need you to sign the contracts and have your photo taken so we can pretend you were involved AT ALL during any part of the process”, with this brand being no exception.
However. That’s a luscious highlight that I’m dying to see on a deep skintone.

Especially since it was a financial decision to dump their ill-fated Amazon deal and partner with Sephora. This product is glorious. So many similar shades wind up looking dirty at the trailing edge., even with expert buffing. I think what you do. The celeb may approve and maybe even give suggestions. But the ultimate decision lies with R&D and the bottom line/margins. The same goes for perfumes. Arianna does not concoct and mix in a lab. A nose does. The finance guys come in, and if they say ok, AG can also say ok. I doubt that the celebs even have veto power. I cannot imagine that J Hill actually approved those dreadful/controversial lipsticks. Look what a hit her reputation took.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
