NABLA Cosmetics Ozone Skin Glazing Highlighter Powder ($26.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a pale champagne beige with moderate, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It was one of the lightest shades in the six-piece line-up.
It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer more. The texture was smooth to the touch, firmly-pressed into the pan but not stiff, so a moderate brush worked best to pick up product evenly but the powder applied evenly and blended out effortlessly. The finish had a noticeable glow but didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It wore well for eight and a half hours 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.
