Lethal Cosmetics Quantum Magnetic Pressed Highlighter ($18.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a medium, pink-coral base with lighter, golden shimmer throughout that gave it a soft sheen. It applied and blended out to a more luminous finish–glowing but not overtly shimmery or metallic–compared to the swatch. It had opaque pigmentation paired with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that wasn’t powdery but not too firmly-pressed into the pan. It wore well for eight hours before fading a bit.

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.
