Another day, another ColourPop post. And this one is a goodie! Right when ColourPop’s new Pressed Powder Highlighters came out, I knew I had to buy some. The size of them and the range of colours spoke to me immediately. Want to know more about the shades I picked up? Keep reading!
The Pressed Powder Highlighters are highly reflective, buttery soft powders that are very creamy and blendable with a luminous, satin finish, so in most cases, it’s a good idea to use them with a light hand. The shades that I picked up are S’il Vous Play, a silvery white with white sparkles, Velvet Rope is a soft golden pink, Go Honey is a petal pink, and Total Package is a metallic medium rose gold.
Price: $8 US ea. / 6.5g / Available now at ColourPop.com

My Glittery Thoughts:
If you love full-on glam highlighters, these ones on are for you! They don’t play around when it comes to pigmentation and with one simple swipe, you get a lot. This is especially the case with Total Package, Velvet Rope and S’il Vous Play. They are very buttery in their pans and deliver blinding shine and colour so easily, so use a light hand with them. Go Honey still has that pigmentation but you don’t pick up as much product as you do with the others. Go Honey is a soft petal pink that I’ve been using as a blush, which works really well when I mix in Total Package or Velvet Rope as a highlight. S’il Vous Play is the perfect “highlight everywhere” colour when I want to look really glowy and basically lit by the Gods. One of my only issues with these highlighters is that there are no names on the bottom of their packaging, so I had to write on them what each of them are, which is a little annoying since I don’t have the prettiest writing. The packaging is really nice and the amount of product you get in each is really good, but I do like knowing what products I’m working with instead of guessing, you know? If you want affordable, full-on glam highlighters that come in a range of gorgeous shades and don’t play when it comes to pigmentation and application, pick up a couple of these highlighters and you’ll be blown away!
