NABLA Cosmetics Adults Only Skin Glazing Highlighter Powder ($26.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a deep, coppery red with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, moderately dense texture that felt firm to the touch but was not stiff or difficult to work with on my skin, as the product blended out easily along the edges. I’d recommend using a moderately denser brush and gentle pushing motions to pick up this product based on its more gel-powder like base. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading visibly.

The formula is supposed have a "mirror effect" and "unexpected brilliance." They have more of a gel-powder base, where it has a slightly drier, firmer feel but not in a bad way, so the product will pick up best with a moderately dense brush (as opposed to something like a fan brush) but have no powderiness.
The range was very pigmented but easy to pick up less product for a sheerer, more buildable effect. They were easy to apply, blended out nicely, and yielded a moderate glow that was smooth and not prone to emphasizing skin texture.
