OFRA Glazed Donut Highlighter Review & Swatches

Glazed Donut

OFRA Glazed Donut Highlighter ($29.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a bright white with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The color coverage was opaque in a single layer, though the texture was soft and yielding, so a lighter hand (or less-dense brush) could be used for more buildable coverage if preferred. The powder was soft to the touch, almost cream-like, dense without being stiff, and blendable on my skin. It wore well for almost nine hours on my cheekbones before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$29.00/0.35 oz. - $82.86 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have a "liquid to baked technology" that has "unparalleled pigment payoff" that can be used as a highlighter as well as an eyeshadow or as a blush topper." It's a very pigmented formula with a high-shine, metallic finish that will be most suitable for someone who wants an intense highlighter. The texture was denser but not dry or difficult to work with, so it seemed to melt onto the skin the more I buffed and blended the highlighter on. They lasted between eight and nine hours on me before fading noticeably.

Dang, that’s pretty! Normally, I steer far away from white highlighters, but Glazed Donut is about to be the exception to that rule!

I love this highlighter!! I got it when Ofra first collaborated with Nikkietutorials and loved it so much I had to buy a backup just in case they ever sold out of it or discontinued. It’s my #1 highlighter and amazing on so many skin tones – especially my super fair skin. I totally agree with the A+!

Hi Jackie. Do you have warm or cool undertones? I’m also very fair and have cool undertones, NW10, and just ordered this. My favorite highlight is Becca Pearl which is cooler than this one. My only other Ofra highlight is Pillow Talk which I absolutely love so I decided to try this one after seeing so many great reviews, including Christine’s. I just haven’t seen any from people with very fair cool toned skin. Thank you!!

I’ve been eyeing these for awhile but I’m not sure when I’ll be placing and order but this shade is definatly on my wishlist. *_* I have a hilighter addtion for sure.

You’ve sold me on Ofra highlighters. Especially this one, which was the one I wanted the most. So surprised to see that it didn’t look ashy on you! Can’t wait to try this one!

I think it’s the combo of shine and shimmer… somehow it lacks that powderiness of very light shades that might translate to ashy!

I’ve been eyeing this for a long time, even more so since I bought Pillow Talk and love it! After reading your review, however, I’ll be skipping it because it has a warm undertone. I am very fair with cool undertones and warm tones make me look sick. I’ll stick with Pillow Talk and my HG, Becca Pearl. Thank you for saving me money!!
