Clionadh Bellona Powder Highlighter ($12.50 for 0.21 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy copper with subtle, warm undertones and a bright, metallic finish. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy without being too dense or too thick, so it picked up well with a myriad of brushes and applied evenly to bare skin. It seemed to stop just short of emphasizing my skin’s natural texture.
It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, and I’d say a little went a long way, so I’d recommend using a lighter hand or a less-dense brush to get the more buildable coverage as described by the brand. This shade lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.
