ILIA Showdown is a very warm-toned, medium-dark brown with a pearl finish. It is a permanent highlighter that retails for $34.00 and contains 0.23 oz.
ILIA Showdown DayLite Highlighting Powder ($34.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium-dark bronze with warm, reddish undertones and a lighter, more contrasting golden shimmer that gave it a luminous sheen. It appeared more metallic when swatched, but slight powderiness of the product seemed to tamp down some of that shine in practice.
Once I applied and buffed the powder into my skin, it was more luminous and sheen-like than overtly shimmery. It had opaque pigmentation that stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.
This butter-soft, blendable powder is finely milled for light-as-air luminosity—with a metallic finish that adds natural depth and dimension to the high points of your face. It’s buildable from a subtle shimmer to a supercharged highlight.
