JD Glow Periodt Pressed Powder Illuminator ($16.50 for 0.28 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy beige with warm undertones and flecks of pink and gold shimmer that gave it a metallic finish. It had an intense, more golden glow when applied and blended out on my skin, though it didn’t seem to emphasize my skin’s natural texture. The color coverage was nearly opaque in a single layer.
The texture was smooth to the touch, lightly creamy but lightweight, thin (but not stiff or difficult to pick up) as there was no powderiness or excess product kicked up in the pan. The highlighter applied evenly and diffused easily along the edges. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

The highlighter formula runs nearly opaque to opaque with moderate to intense luminosity. A couple of the more metallic shades can emphasize skin texture when worn at higher coverage levels, but for the most part, the glow was intense, shiny, and reflective without emphasizing my natural texture.
The consistency felt smooth, lightweight, and thin without being powdery or too firmly-pressed into the pan, so it wasn't messy to use while picking up readily with a typical highlighter brush. There was a creaminess and some slip to it that made it feel almost like a cream-powder but was definitely a powder product. The highlighter applied evenly to bare skin, blended out with ease, and lasted between eight and nine hours before fading on me.
