Colour Pop Trickles Pressed Powder Highlighter ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a light-medium lavender with warm, pink undertones and a cool, violet pearl. It had semi-opaque coverage, which was somewhat buildable, but the texture was incredibly dense and tended to apply unevenly as the product clumped up on the skin. It was actually a powder that applied better with a synthetic brush or fingertips rather than a natural hair, fluffy brush as it needed more to break up and smooth out the powder. The highlighter stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading.

The powder highlighter is supposed to have a “high-shine” finish with “high colour intensity.” In general, ColourPop’s pressed highlighter powders have a smooth, moderately dense texture that was soft enough to be picked up easily by a brush but not kick up any powder in the pan. The formula was semi-opaque to opaque but easily sheered out for less shine and coverage if desired. There were a few shades within the range that emphasized my skin’s natural texture slightly but most did not. The wear ranged from seven and a half hours to nine hours.
