Helios

Huda Beauty Helios N.Y.M.P.H. All Over Highlighting Powder ($55.00 for 1.05 oz.) is a rich, golden bronze with strong, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It was supposed to have “sheer to medium coverage” that was buildable, but it was actually rather pigmented; being generous, I might say semi-opaque in practice, but it was something you’d use a lighter-hand and a less-dense brush to specifically achieve true buildable coverage.

The formula felt like a gel-powder hybrid, so it had a firmer, denser feel to the touch–ensuring no powderiness–and did pick up more evenly with a moderately dense brush. The product applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with ease without emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. It had produced a noticeable shine that wasn’t quite as intense as it seemed when I initially swatched it, though it did get close to pore-emphasizing territory at full coverage. This shade lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!
