High Noon

Sephora High Noon Golden Hour Highlighting PowderSephora High Noon Golden Hour Highlighting Powder ($16.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium copper with golden shimmer and a more frosted sheen when swatched. On the skin, it had a more luminous finish that was glowing but not metallic.

The formula is supposed to have a “soft, luminous glow with a sheer wash of color” that can be “worn alone or layered.” It had medium coverage, which was buildable to semi-opaque coverage. The texture was smooth, velvety, and almost cream-like as it was denser but very, very smooth. I found it needed a denser brush to pickup product, so a light hand or a more feathery brush might not yield much product at all. It was easy to blend out on the skin, and the shimmer finish did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. The highlighter lasted for eight hours on me.

Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

This looks gorgeous on you. I am glad it rated so well, especially considering the price and also how well it compared to several much pricier products. Will you be reviewing Twilight and also Dusk?

Ooops – I see you’ve already reviewed Dusk! I thought it was the Dawn shade that you reviewed previously. Sorry – I get SO confused!

Don’t worry, I get confused, too. I am actually pretty sure that I somehow managed to switch the two when initially labeling the posts, LOL.

I could so see using High Noon with UD Jawbone for a *perfect* been to the beach for the day type of effect! Having ABH Glo Better, I will see if I can get that effect. ?
