Adults Only

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.

Formula Overview

$26.00/0.23 oz. - $113.04 Per Ounce

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.

Woah, I’m rather smitten with this one and I think I can pull it off in a light handed application because it’s not an orange base. Of course, I do not have a dupe as this wouldn’t be a typical pick for me. Anyhooo…love it!

This is a lovely colour and I think would look amazing on my daughter who has a medium skin tone. I think it would work for me also, if I used a light hand. Not sure about the cost to product ratio. For a lesser known brand it seems a bit steep. I do love Nabla but have not tried any blush/highlighters. Even though it reviewed very well, I will have to think about this one.

I’m head over heels in love with this lovely softer red “blush”! Even though I have Clinique Cola Pop and a few other redder blushes, I would much prefer the softer, less intense red that this one imparts. At least for most red cheek days anyhow.

Pretty but is sold out on Ulta. Glad to see that I already have 3 dupes that I love. I brought the new Fenty red highlighter Ruby Richez highlighter instead.

This is very pretty. On other people. This would pull orange on me and I would use a color like this more as a blush. I get really good results with the red in the PML Bronze Seduction palette. One of the reasons I really wanted the Rose Divine palette. I’m still perturbed though in how she has handled this release.
