OFRA Neptune Highlighter ($29.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a light lavender with neutral-to-cool undertones and a bright, metallic sheen. The texture was incredibly smooth and cream-like–denser, not powdery at all, but it wasn’t difficult to pick up with a brush–and blended out effortlessly on my skin. It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to my cheeks and highlighted without emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. This shade stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

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.
