Laguna

Persona Laguna Cali Glow Highlighter ($24.00 for 0.26 oz.) is a pale, white gold with warm, yellow undertones and flecks of gold micro-sparkle that yielded a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, smooth consistency that wasn’t too firmly nor too softly pressed in the pan, though I’d describe it as a denser formula with moderate slip (and there was silicone in it). The powder applied easily onto my skin, blended out well, and stayed on nicely for eight hours.

Formula Overview

$24.00/0.26 oz. - $92.31 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to give a "warm, sun kissed reflective glow" that will "build up to a high-impact shine" with an "ultra smooth and creamy" texture. Two of three shades were fairly pigmented with smooth, creamy textures, but one was drier and stiffer in the pan (definitely different than the other two!). The finish they yield is shiny and metallic, so the formula would be ideal for someone who likes a strong highlighter, and I would not consider them a buildable formula (they can be applied with a lighter hand, of course, but they're pigmented overall). I didn't find that it emphasized my skin's texture. They wore around eight hours on me before I noticed fading.

Super pretty! But I’m chock full of dupes here. Having just received a full-sized pan of UD Sin Afterglow Highlighter as a birthday month perk when I ordered one of the new HiFi lip glosses in Beso. Plus, I already owned UD Now’s The Time and CO Lunch Money.
