Clionadh high voltage powder highlighter ($ 15.00 for 0.21 oz.) Has a translucent base full of duochromatic shimmers that shift from cooler green to warmer chartreuse green paired with a metallic sheen. It had mostly opaque paint coverage in a single layer, although it could be applied with a lighter hand or a feather-lighter brush to make the product more crisp.
The texture felt soft and smooth and felt slightly creamy, which prevented it from becoming powdery. It was applied evenly to my skin and diffused well along the edges without emphasizing the texture of my skin. It stayed fine for nine hours before it visibly faded.

There’s not much that the formula describes other than that it’s a “soft, buildable application”. They were usually quite pigmented – semi-opaque to completely opaque – with soft, smoother textures that were neither too tight nor too softly pressed into the pan. For a sheer or more buildable application, I would highly recommend using a lighter hand and a less dense brush to do this.
The texture was usually smooth, slightly dense, and a little thicker than most powder highlighter pens on the market, so often they really needed to be buffed and spread over the skin. The surfaces were often more intense and tended to be metallic. Occasionally they would accentuate the natural texture of my skin when worn at higher coverage levels. Most of them lasted between eight and nine hours with me.
