OFRA Star Island Highlighter ($29.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a bright, pale yellow gold with warm undertones (but doesn’t lean orange) paired with a metallic finish. The highlighter was richly pigmented with a smooth, creamy consistency that was dense without being too firmly pressed in the pan. It picked up easily with a brush but had that “melted” look once applied and blended out on my skin. The highlighter applied well to bare skin and blended out with ease. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours 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.
