Showdown

ILIA Showdown DayLite Highlighting Powder ($34.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium-dark bronze with warm, reddish undertones and a lighter, more contrasting golden shimmer that gave it a luminous sheen. It appeared more metallic when swatched, but slight powderiness of the product seemed to tamp down some of that shine in practice.

Once I applied and buffed the powder into my skin, it was more luminous and sheen-like than overtly shimmery. It had opaque pigmentation that stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Comments that do not adhere to our comment policy may be removed. Discussion and debate are highly encouraged but we expect community members to participate respectfully. Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

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!
