Rated 4.35 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review A little goes a long way. Blinding!
Idk why I thought it was gonna be glittery but it's not at all! It's an insanely reflective highlighter! A little product on your finger tip is enough (you softly glide your finger over the surface - don't dig in or press too hard bc you'll get way too much product) - This highlighter is not for those subtle makeup looks - unless you love a bright highlight with natural-looking makeup. It doesn't need to be set but I like to dust ELFs baked highlighter in moonlight pearls just to prevent it from wiping off when i touch my face. - btw, i have a light skin tone with warmer undertones and it doesn't leave a cast when i look ahead
Most Helpful Critical Review Doesn't last long... :-(
I love Colourpop eye shadows. So when I was looking for a new highlighter, I decided to go with this one. (Flexitarian)
The color is so pretty! Definitely went nice with my complexion and was easy to apply - not much fall out and smooth formula - feels nice.
If you want intense shine you need to build it up.
The 2 reasons it didn't get 5 stars from me is:
1. It doesn't last long. It wears away within a few hours.
2. The glitter doesn't stay put. It tends to speak around when you blend it in with the blush and contour.
But over all love the product for everyday use.

Schlomo from Detroit
I'm not sure it it's just the shade I got (Monster) or what, but despite looking and feeling great in the pan, this product had no payoff no matter how I applied it. I couldn't even use it as a highlight topper, it seemed to mattify the product beneath. Totally bizarre and the opposite of the point.
Gracie from Atlanta, Georgia
I've tried using this highlight with a brush, my fingers, even a beauty blender, but it just doesn't work for me. It's way too glittery for everyday use (work, school, etc.) If you are going out, or do stage work, then it would work for you.
This product has a terrible smell
Freea01 from Overland Park, KS
I didn't even really get into trying it because I couldn't get past the awful smell. I returned it.
Incredible payoff, great price!

I don't usually write reviews, but I am buying this highlighter for the second time. The first lasted me over half a year because it is so pigmented and potent. It picks up easily on the brushes (I use a smaller blending brush for the brow bone, upper lip, and nose and a larger blending brush for the cheekbone) and blends very easily! You do have to press the brush in gently though as opposed to a powder because it has a creamier consistency. I believe this helps it blend in to the skin a lot easier though as it never has that powdery, harsh, sitting-on-top look. I like to tone it and my blush down a bit with some loose powder, and it stays all day. I appreciate how it wears in the long term and actually like it more that way - the highlight and shimmer itself stays, but blends more with the natural oils in the skin and provides a great natural glow.
I didn't notice a difference

Not the Greatest
Lene from El Paso, TX
Very subtle highlighter, mostly powder and very little glitter. The swatch on my hand gives off a natural glow, as well on my face, but layered cakey over my makeup.
This is a highlighter where you have to layer it for you to see it on the high points on your face. Even then, all that layering will create texture on your face. I really like the soft bouncy texture the product has, it's just too bad I didn't like the pay off.
I got the shade Lunch Money.
3 stars because I think I can still use this as a base for my other highlighters
Maria from Rochester, MN
I absolutely love this highlighter! I reach out for it more than my Amrezy highlighter. It blends soo good on the skin. Definitely will be buy it as a gift.
Lauren from Chicago, IL
Tbh I typically love a SUPER intense highlighter (especially with lots of glitter) but I wanted to try this one because I love the iridescent/opalescent color. I got the shade Monster and it is gorgeous. Definitely not as intense as I am used to it is more of a daytime highlight thats for sure. So again if you like a SUPER intense highlight or like a really glittery highlight then I'd say this isn't that. But it's still stunning. I love it. Want to try more shades

this looks SO pretty in my inner corners
Lexi from Bettendorf
I bought Lunch Money and Monster, both are cute. If you want a more natural highlight then go for Lunch Money (don't know if it works for darker skin tones though, I'm fair with a pink undertone) if you want a little more pizzazz then go for Monster that reflects a light pink.
Rose from folsom
well the color does pop but its a weird consistency id rather gave powder highlighter this kind of sticks to my foundation which gives it a cakey look but the color is beautiful
Jaz from Oregon
So amazing for the price, the texture is so creamy and the shine and sparkle is beautiful and blends amazingly! It's perfect
ULTA QUALITY CONTROL
V from Orlando, FL
I want to stress this isn't an issue with the highlighter -- it's very glittery, if that matters to anyone. I ordered this online and Ulta sent me a highlighter looking this right out of the box. There's a chunk missing even with the halves put together.
I ordered Lunch Money from Colourpop's website, and it came in one piece. Look forward to using a NEW product that isn't USED!
I want people to be aware of their quality control issues because other people may have this same issue with the product.

Mine came damaged

I saw this used my an influencer and decided to try. I loved that it comes in so many colors and I may have to try some more since so cheap !
Love the shine!
Olguita from Oceanside ca
I love this highlighter, works well with my complexion. The glow last . It's so smooth
Lovely color, but it creases
Peachbunny from Portland, OR
I truly loved this product at first. The color was lovely, shimmery but still understated enough for day wear. The texture was silky and it was easy to apply. Unfortunately it nearly immediately creased after blinking only a couple times. I tried using setting spray to keep it in place, to no avail. Unfortunately I had to return it :(
Love the texture! Great for everyday look!
Spooks from Lexington, ky
Applies easily with no fallout and feels great on your skin! I would use this for an everyday/casual look. If you're going for a more dramatic/bold highlighter I would suggest something else but I think this looks perfect for a nice glow, everyday look!
Chunky but effective
Mon from New York City
Wouldn't repurchase but I love Colour Pop.
For the price, it's decent
Z from Indy
This was my first time trying Colourpop's highlighters. I've tried many of their lipsticks and eyeshadows and loved them. This comes in a very small packaging that I feel like could be improved to prevent breakage but oh well. As far as the highlighter goes, they have a smooth, buttery finish. I do feel like it's more of a natural highlighter instead of one that gives a heavy, blinding glow. I usually apply with my fingers a few layers and then blend it out with a damp beauty blender and I get a nice, natural glow. For the price is it worth a try? Yes. Is it going to be my new go to? Probably not, but I'm not opposed to buying it again because of the price and I'm on a budget. I've definitely had better though as far as pigment.
Such a Quick and Easy Highlight
Marla from Maryland
Lunch Money is SUCH a pretty shade for people with fair skin. I like it best when I apply it with my fingers and a little goes a long way. It's great quality and a great price! You can't beat it!
crosk from boston
dont love this. dont find it very shiny or sparkly and its a weird texture that makes it hard to blend
Not a fan
Ashley from Washington
I didnt like this at all. It started to break after swiping my brush over it once. Also didnt seem like it was packaged well when it arrived. I will be sticking to physicians formula pearl butter highlighter.
Kalmo0808 from Jackson TN
It's chalky, no shine on my face really at all. You get what you pay for.
