Pillow Talk

OFRA Pillow Talk Highlighter ($16.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a bright, pale pink with subtle, warmer undertones and a metallic sheen. It had rich color payoff in a single layer with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was dense without being stiff or dry in the pan. The highlighter applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with little work. It had a very strong, metallic finish that was closer to the “blinding” kind of highlight, which seemed in line with what it was supposed to be. I didn’t feel that it emphasized my skin’s texture, but it didn’t smooth it out either so those with more texture may find it still emphasizes theirs. This shade stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me.

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.

Yes indeed, this is a “seen from outer space” highlighter! I really love it on your complexion. I do, however, have UD Sin Afterglow Highlighter and Maybelline Molton Rose Gold for when I want to up my glow factor to this level, so I’ll be passing on this one.

I have REALLY textured skin with a lot of acne scarring and large pores but I looove highlight, the MORE blinding the better!!!! :/ what highlighters do you suggest for people with a lot of texture to their skin, cuz I’m lost and would LOOOVE to be able to shine like a diamond like you other beauties do!!!! 🙁

Any that I try seem to so far, I’m kinda new to the highlighting scene though, so I havnt really tried too many, and it’s been a minute since I tried ANY because of the whole texture issue!!!

Wow, I really adore this on you! And the mini price point makes this a great opportunity to try this out! I have never owned/used a OFRA product so this might be my first!

How would you compare Pillow Talk to Becca’s Rose Quartz? I love Becca’s Pearl but hated Prismatic Amethyst. I wanted Amethyst to be a pale lilac but it was hardcore metallic purple. I don’t want a stripe of bright pink on my face!
