Glazed

Milk Makeup Glazed Flex HighlighterMilk Makeup Glazed Flex Highlighter ($28.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a soft, golden bronze with warm undertones and a bright, metallic finish. It had opaque pigmentation with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was dense without being stiff or too firmly pressed in the pan. The powder applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with little effort. This shade had the most intense finish out of the released shades (at the time of this post, at least), and it wasn’t as smoothing as other shades, though I didn’t feel like it was emphasizing either. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading slightly.

P.S. — It arrived broken with most of the powder held together but separated from the pan.

Formula Overview

$28.00/0.22 oz. - $127.27 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to apply "seamlessly" to skin and hydrate skin with a "weightless pearlescent base" that gives "next-level glow." There's no specific description about coverage, but the promotional swatches showed all shades as opaque. The formula is as smooth and as silky as described; it felt like a thinner, powdery cream than it felt like a true powder.

It had good glide and slip, and I did feel like it "melted" a bit when applied to my skin, so it had that "seamless" aspect to it as marketed. The finish ranged from moderately luminous to sparkling, and the intensity of the glow could be built up. The pigmentation was more opaque, but it could be used with a lighter hand for more buildable coverage if preferred. They lasted between eight and nine hours on me.

Strangely, I see this shade as being quite versatile for more than not! A STUNNING highlighter for those with deeper, richer skintones, and also as a shimmery bronzer for those of us with skintones ranging from medium to tan to lt. brown skintones, too. I’m loving it more than I was expecting to!
