Makeup Geek Firework is a moderately warm-toned, dark copper with a metallic finish. It is a permanent highlighter that retails for $20.00 and contains 0.25 oz.
Makeup Geek Firework Highlighter ($20.00 for 0.25 oz.) is muted, dark coppery brown with warm, orange undertones and a luminous sheen. The finish was highly reflective, mostly metallic, but it didn't emphasize pores, which was surprising. It also appeared lighter and gave more of a golden sheen when applied with semi-sheer to medium coverage (I used a fan brush), while applied with a denser blush brush made it appear darker overall.
According to Makeup Geek, the formula is supposed to be "super-smooth" and "incredibly pigmented." The highlighter was intensely pigmented, true to description, with a soft, light-medium dense texture that wasn't too soft or too firm in the pan. The powder applied well to the skin, blended out with minimal effort, and had a luminous sheen. On me, the color wore well for eight and a half hours before starting to fade.
