Kosas Velvet Melon Color & Light Palette Review & Swatches

Velvet Melon Kosas Velvet Melon Color and Light Palette ($34.00 for 0.32 oz.) is the sheerer version of the duo and featured a peachy blush with a peachy-beige highlighter. The highlighter appeared darker in the pan than applied–it definitely seemed a fair bit lighter in practice but some of the depth might be more apparent on someone of a very light skin tone. Both products applied well and delivered the pigmentation they were ma...

Sydney Grace Bronzed Radiance Loose Highlighter Review & Swatches

Bronzed Radiance Sydney Grace Bronzed Radiance Loose Highlighter ($8.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark copper with moderate, warm orange undertones and warmer, golden shimmer and micro-sparkle. It had an intense glow–both metallic but also more sparkly and visibly shimmery–with rich color coverage in a single layer. The loose format does make it easy to pick up quite a bit of product, but you definitely don’t need much for f...

Kosas Velvet Melon High Intensity Color & Light Palette Review & Swatches

Velvet Melon (High Intensity) Kosas Velvet Melon (High Intensity) Color and Light Palette ($34.00 for 0.32 oz.) is the “double the pigment” version that offers a deeper coral blush with a peachy highlighter. Both shades were deeper and more pigmented than the sheerer version of the duo. I didn’t have any issues applying either shade over bare skin or over foundation, though the blush was definitely deeper and pigmented enough that...

Sydney Grace Arctic Moon Loose Highlighter Review & Swatches

Arctic Moon Sydney Grace Arctic Moon Loose Highlighter ($8.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a very light, bright mauve with subtle, cool undertones and a metallic finish. It appeared lighter when applied to my skin as it was very reflective, so it was more glow and shine than base color in practice. Thankfully, while it was an intense highlighter, it didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture and actually seemed to give an illusion of smoothne...

Kosas 8th Muse Color & Light Palette Review & Swatches

8th Muse Kosas 8th Muse Color and Light Palette ($34.00 for 0.32 oz.) is the sheerer, more buildable coverage version of the shade and includes a soft pink blush paired with a pearly, light pink highlighter. The shades offered semi-sheer, somewhat buildable coverage with a creamy, emollient formula that dried down to a more skin-like finish that lasted around eight hours on me.FURTHER READING: Formula Overview for details on gene...

Sydney Grace Pink Mist Pressed Highlighter Review & Swatches

Pink Mist Sydney Grace Pink Mist Highlighter ($9.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a pale, whitish-beige base with pink-to-lavender shifting pearl throughout. It had a less intense finish than most shades in the highlighter range, so it was more of a moderate glow with a very smooth sheen. The shift was noticeable–more so in person and particularly when layered over a blush–and looked like a brighter, lavender-pink and a cooler, bluer lavender ...

Kosas 8th Muse High Intensity Color & Light Palette Review & Swatches

8th Muse (High Intensity) Kosas 8th Muse (High Intensity) Color and Light Palette ($34.00 for 0.32 oz.) is the more intense coverage version of the shade and includes a bright, pink blush paired with a pearly, warm rose highlighter. The blush lived up to its “High Intensity” descriptor and was quite pigmented, but the highlighter seemed more like semi-sheer to medium and didn’t build much beyond medium coverage. The highlighter wa...

Sydney Grace Allegro Pressed Highlighter Review & Swatches

Allegro Sydney Grace Allegro Highlighter ($9.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a light-medium, rosy copper with subtle, warm undertones and a smooth, metallic sheen. It had an intense glow but the shimmer seemed finer, so reflective quality was greater but did emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It had opaque color coverage in as single layer, but the creamier, slightly firmer, denser consistency made it easy to pick up less product if desire...

Sydney Grace Sun Kissed Peach Highlighter Review & Swatches

Sun Kissed Peach Sydney Grace Sun Kissed Peach Highlighter ($9.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a bright, light pink-peach base with light, peachy-gold shimmer that gave it a more metallic finish. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer where a little went a long way. The slightly firmer, denser consistency made it easier to work it as it wasn’t powdery so I had no trouble controlling how much I got on my brush. The highlighter applied ...

Own Your Light Becca Own Your Light Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed ($38.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a light-medium, yellowy-peach base with peach-to-pink shifting shimmer that gave it a luminous finish. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out easily along the edges for a seamless finish that didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. The finish seemed slightly less intense–in on...

Sydney Grace Picture Perfect Highlighter Review & Swatches

Picture Perfect Sydney Grace Picture Perfect Highlighter ($9.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a medium, coppery bronze with strong, warm undertones and a bright, metallic finish. It had an intense glow that was both highly-reflective as well as shimmery, and it seemed to emphasize my skin’s natural texture just a smidge when worn at semi-opaque or higher coverage. The texture was smooth, creamy, and dense without being too-firmly pressed into th...

ILIA Decades DayLite Highlighting Powder Review & Swatches

Decades ILIA Decades DayLite Highlighting Powder ($34.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a light, yellowy gold with warm undertones and a smooth, metallic sheen. It had a moderate sheen that didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture applied in a single layer, but the intensity of the glow was definitely buildable (as marketed) to a highly-reflective, metallic finish with a second layer. The pigmentation was mostly opaque in one layer, so it wasn’...

ILIA Starstruck DayLite Highlighting Powder Review & Swatches

Starstruck ILIA Starstruck DayLite Highlighting Powder ($34.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a light-medium gold with strong, warm undertones and a smooth, highly-reflective sheen. The texture felt smooth, creamy, and emollient without being thick or heavy; it almost seemed like it had a transparent base due to just how emollient (without being actually wet!) it felt and sat on my skin. It had good color coverage that was buildable to full cove...

Linda Hallberg Virgio Infinity Highlighter Review & Swatches

Virgio Linda Hallberg Cosmetics Virgio Infinity Highlighter ($21.00 for 0.39 oz.) is a soft, yellowy gold with a smooth, metallic sheen. Per the brand, it can be used with a dampened brush for an even more intense, metallic finish, which was apt, but it was fairly intense on its own and was just shy of texture-emphasizing territory on my skin. The consistency was smooth, lightly emollient with noticeable glide–it almost felt wet to...

Kaja Dreamy Gleamy Glowy Stamp Liquid Highlighter Review & Swatches

Dreamy Kaja Dreamy Glowy Stamp Liquid Highlighter ($24.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium gold with strong, warm undertones and a soft sheen. It was subtler than Gleamy, so it would be ideal for someone who likes a hint of warmer glow but doesn’t want overt shimmery or a heavy shine to come through. It had medium, buildable pigmentation that pressed onto the skin well with the included stamp-sponge applicator, though it worked just as we...

Kaja Gleamy Glowy Stamp Liquid Highlighter Review & Swatches

Gleamy Kaja Gleamy Glowy Stamp Liquid Highlighter ($24.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a light-medium gold with strong, warm yellow undertones and a natural sheen. It had buildable coverage from semi-sheer to semi-opaque (two layers), which applied decently with the stamp for an initial layer but was best blended out with fingertips. The consistency was lightweight, creamy, and wet to the touch, but it was quick to dry down to a more powder-...

Becca Love Ignite Liquified Light Highlighter Review & Swatches

Love Becca Love Ignite Liquified Light Highlighter ($38.00 for 1.5 oz.) seemed to have a translucent base with flecks of iridescent sparkle and micro-glitter that flashed blue, pink, and lavender. This was the most glittery in texture of the new formula, so those who loathe visible sparkle will want to skip along. The texture was consistent with my past experience: lightweight, like a gel-cream, which ensured spreadability, so it w...

Gratitude Becca Gratitude Ignite Liquified Light Highlighter ($38.00 for 1.5 oz.) is a medium-dark gold with strong, warm undertones and flecks of pink and gold micro-sparkle over a bright, metallic sheen. This particular shade seemed to have slightly larger shimmer/sparkle particles compared to most of the permanent range. The sheerer the application, the more noticeable the sparkles were. The highlighter yielded opaque color cove...

Clinique Lunar Pop Powder Pop Flower Highlighter Review & Swatches

Lunar Pop Clinique Lunar Pop Powder Pop Flower Highlighter ($32.50 for 0.31 oz.) is a light, peachy beige with moderate, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. There was very, very faint pink and gold pearl sprinkled throughout, but it didn’t create much dimension or shift in person. Per the brand, it’s supposed to have “buildable” coverage and a “visibly dewy finish.” It had medium, buildable coverage–up to mostly opaque with tw...

It had opaque color coverage in a single pump, which seemed like more product than necessary to highlight the high points of the face (but would be sufficient for collarbones or the like), so I’d recommend tapping gent...

Creativity Becca Creativity Ignite Liquified Light Highlighter ($38.00 for 1.5 oz.) is a light-medium gold with strong, warm undertones paired with a smooth, metallic sheen. It was intensely pigmented where a little could go a long way; one pump was definitely far too much product for highlighting the high points on the face but at least one would be good for the body. For face highlighting, gently tap the top to expel a fraction ...

Strength Becca Strength Ignite Liquified Light Highlighter ($38.00 for 1.5 oz.) is a rich, gold-shimmered bronze with moderate, warm undertones and a smooth, metallic sheen. The pearl used was very fine, which made the finish look almost wet when applied, despite mostly drying down. I’d recommend tapping gently, rather than dispersing a full pump, if working with this as a spot highlighter for the face, though a pump or more work...

It was highly reflective while also being shimmery but not glittery or as textured as a more intense, powder highlight might be. A little went a long way, so it was quite pigmented work with, and ...

It produced the level of coverage anticipated based on the formula’s claims, and whether the tint is really giving a bronzed effect will ...
