Truth

NABLA Cosmetics Truth Skin Glazing Highlighter Powder ($26.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium pink with moderate, warm undertones and a golden, metallic sheen. The highlighter was richly pigmented, but the firmer texture made it easy to use a lighter hand to pick up less product if desired.

That firmness didn’t translate into stiffness, though, so there was no powderiness to deal with while the product still applied evenly and blended out with little effort. It had a noticeable glow on my skin, which could be dialed up if desired, but it didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours before I noticed slight fading.

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.

Stunning! Okay, so I’m going to need this gorgeous highlighting blush! I know I can get a blush from it during our cooler months (Fenty 260), may have more of a highlighter blush look to it during summer when my skintone deepens to NC41 (MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation), I suspect.

Beautiful color and finish. I think it would look food on my older but good skin and my light neutral coloring. Hair has grey highlights naturally. Younger color dark ash blonde.
