Lethal Cosmetics Isotope Magnetic Pressed Highlighter ($18.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a light gold with strong, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. The finish gave a moderate glow–not overtly shimmery–and didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture.
It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out well. The consistency was moderately-dense, smooth, and easy to pick up with feathery and denser brushes. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before showing signs of wear.

The formula is supposed to have a "radiant glow" that is "never glittery" and long-wearing. The pigmentation ranged from semi-opaque to opaque, but all were buildable if desired. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable without being too firmly nor too loosely-pressed, which made it easy to adjust pressure or use with both feathery and denser brushes to change the application results.
The finish was more luminous and glowing without being overtly shimmery for most shades. I didn't have any issues with the formula emphasizing my skin's natural texture. They lasted around eight hours on me before showing signs of fading.
