Decades

ILIA Decades DayLite Highlighting Powder ($34.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a light, yellowy gold with warm undertones and a smooth, metallic sheen. It had a moderate sheen that didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture applied in a single layer, but the intensity of the glow was definitely buildable (as marketed) to a highly-reflective, metallic finish with a second layer.

The pigmentation was mostly opaque in one layer, so it wasn’t necessary to build up for actual coverage. The powder had a very smooth, lightly creamy consistency without any powderiness, which made it a slightly denser, firmer texture to work with but not to the point where it became stiff or difficult to pick up on a brush. It applied easily to bare skin, blended out nicely, and lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

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!

Out of the two offerings, this one is my favorite! It’s very lovely and glass like in its sheen. Not quite glass-skin, but still very reflective and gives a nice glow.

This is really pretty and light enough for me to wear but seriously, I am pretty well stocked with highlighters and really can’t buy anymore until I make a dent in even one of them.
