Kaleidos Sky Walker House Age Highlighter ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) has a translucent base with cool-toned lavender shimmer that shifted barely icy white/bluish white with a shiny, wet-looking end with faintly seen sparkle. The powder had a firmer, barely stiff consistency, although it felt drier to the contact, so I observed it sheered out a bit in apply and was extra vulnerable to flyaway powder throughout utility and mixing.
It had medium, buildable pigmentation–extra from the shimmer than the bottom, which was intentionally translucent. The highlighter utilized pretty evenly to reveal pores and skin and blended out decently alongside the perimeters, however the end did emphasize my pores and skin’s pure texture. It lasted effectively for eight hours earlier than fading noticeably.

The formulation is meant to have “vibrant, color-shifting” shades which have an “ultra-lightweight, clean texture that virtually melts onto pores and skin.” They’re described as being “translucent but spotlight reflective” with a “multi-chrome end.” I had totally different experiences throughout the vary, so it was not essentially the most constant of ranges. They did, on common, apply just a little higher in apply than they appeared initially swatched.
For essentially the most half, the regularly-priced ($14 on the time of publishing) shades have been extra like intense duochromes than true multi-chromes to me, and I do assume the worth displays that (as their true multichromes are $36 every). That they had translucent bases throughout the board with some shades having stronger preliminary protection than others, however they produced a noticeable sheen and shift on my pores and skin.
The feel was what various from shade to shade with some shades feeling drier, virtually crumbly, and being significantly vulnerable to emphasizing pores and skin texture, despite the fact that I haven’t got that a lot seen texture on my cheeks (this isn’t a standard challenge for me, it could possibly occur however it’s rare that I actually really feel a highlighter emphasizes my texture!) whereas different shades have been firmer however utilized extra easily on my pores and skin.
I favored the tones and shade vary extra so than the formulation, however a few shades have been actually pretty to work with. They tended to put on round eight hours on my pores and skin earlier than fading visibly, although the chunkier, extra sparkly shades had seen migration across the six-hour mark.
