Makeup Geek Celestial Highlighter ($20.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a very light, icy lavender with cool undertones and a luminous sheen. The finish was somewhere between luminous and metallic, but the shimmer seemed very fine and had a smoother look, so it did not emphasize my skin's natural texture. I didn't notice much of a shift with this one--it always looked icy and purplish.
According to Makeup Geek, the formula is supposed to be "super-smooth" and "incredibly pigmented." It had good pigmentation, though it wasn't quite opaque and seemed less pigmented compared to most of the range. I don't think that this is, functionally, a bad thing, as it was still buildable, and I expect that many apply their highlighter with sheer to medium coverage in mind anyway. The texture was soft, smooth, and lightly dense so that there wasn't any excess powder that kicked up in the pan, but there was also no difficulty in getting product onto the brush. I noticed signs of fading around the tops of my cheek bones after eight hours of wear.
