Milk Makeup Lit Flex Highlighter ($28.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a light, golden beige with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It was buildable to more of an intense, metallic finish (that was still shiny rather than really shimmery) with a second layer of product. The powder felt smooth, silky, and wasn’t powdery (well, the larger chunk that I tested, as it did arrive broken upon arrival) when I put my brush to the product to pick it up. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, though it was easy to pick up less product or spread and buff it out for sheerer coverage if desired. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

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.
