I have the shade Flexitarian and it is the most blinding highlight I own. I don't like highlighters with a lot of sparkles or glitter flecks, because I have oily skin and they tend to wear off and at the end of the day, I am left with specks of glitter on my face – this does not do that. I really like the formula as they are easy to blend, especially with fingers. This might be too blinding for daily wear, but great for an extra attention to your face. I honestly don't know how it applies on darker skin (I'm NC20 on MAC), because it's very white and bright.

I adore these highlighters! I'm a fan of highlighters in general and don't mind a little glitter - however not all of these are glittery. It depends on the shade you get, I have monster, hippo, honymoon, flexitarian, over the moon, wisp and more. My fav would be hippo - a lavender sheen (no glitter and very natural looking). At first I wasn't really a fan until I found the best way to apply them. I use my finger or a concealer brush to apply it onto the areas I want to highlight, then I use the ELF small stippling brush OR a beauty blender to blend it in. If you want to apply your highlighter with a brush these probably aren't for you - they act like a cream essentially so a fan brush wont pick up anything.The only one I didn't really care for was "wisp", when I got it I realized it was darker than I thought, it is suppose to be a dupe for Becca Opal but it was a little darker and not as shimmery in my opinion. I ended up giving it to a friend who is a little darker than me (I'm about NC35 and she is about NC42) and it looks gorgeous on her!

I have this in the shade lunch money, which is perfect for my pale complexion. My favourite way to apply this is to dab it over my cheekbones and then set it with a powder highlight for a super intense glow. The color pay off is amazing for the price. I actually like the soft cushion like formula. It is AMAZING for the Cupid's bow. I am a highlighter addict, both drugstore and high end and this is my favourite highlight for my Cupid's bow. I think it's because it applys quite intensely with my finger and gives an almost wet look to my Cupid's bow. I know it's probably a bit diva like, but I'd repurchase this over and over just for my Cupid's bow. I have to have this in my collection.

I love my Flexitarian highlight. On my light warm to neutral skin tone it looks just right and so glowy. It's an off white, leaning towards champagne with silvery reflect. It has some glittery particles but I feel like they don't emphasize skin texture and the highlight leaves your skin looking almost wet. Because it's not super goldeny it resembles natural shine on my face, just in a gorgeous more intense way. The base of it is great for light skin and the reflect is super intense. My skin looks so healthy and naturally glowy in all the right places and it's good for all the high points on the face. The consistency is so fun, it's the smoothest most spongey thing ever to the point where it feels more like a cream or a mousse than a powder. And because it is not powdery it definitely looks good with no foundation as well, as a matter of fact, I haven't been wearing foundation for some time now - concealer only - and this highlighter makes my skin look so good even if blemishes or pores are showing. It just steals the show. Flexitarian has made me hate powdery, dry highlighters because I feel like they're not as fun to apply on the face. That being said, the only way I like to apply this is with my fingers. It takes some getting used to but once you get the hang of it, it's good. Apply with one finger and then blend with a clean one. Blending or toning it down with a brush or a sponge works well though.

The price is all you should ever have to pay for a highlighter. I got it in a sale, too, so that makes it even better. Colourpop products have made me consider how overly prized so many eyeshadows and lip products can be, unless they contain some seriously beneficial and healthy ingredients for you. I know I will repurchase this highlighter when I run out and I've already ordered one for my hairdresser who fell in love with it upon me showing it to her. :D

I don't like overly praising products but I have nothing to complain about this product. Some people may not enjoy the glitteriness but in my opinion it does not show up on the face oddly or in a bad way.

I live in Finland so I have to pay customs fee if I order from the USA for more than 21 or so USD, but on my first order I chose this highlighter and a super shock eyeshadow + shipping and I didn't have to pay customs fee and I have to say, I regret nothing. Today I placed my second more expensive Colourpop order with some lip products and more eyeshadows and I can't wait for it to arrive! I love the concept behind Colourpop products and how experimental, fun and fairly priced they are. They're definitely unique and I hope they'll keep that going even though they're gonna sell in some Sephoras in the future, too.

I love my colourpop highlighters in Wisp and Lunch Money, I have been reaching for them almost daily! The texture is very interesting and I at first I was trying to apply them with my fingers and with a brush but they kept moving my foundation underneath, I find that they apply the best with a beauty blender. The finish is very natural and it is not too shimmery, like as if I am glowing from within but can get very intense if layered with a powder highlight on top.

I have this highlighter in the shade Lunch Money. In shade, it's an exact dupe of ABH Starlight highlighter.
Im an NC20, and this blends into my skin like a dream.
This product is meant to be used with your fingers. You swirl your finger on this and then tap it onto your cheekbones and any area you want to highlight. Once applied, you can blend the edges with your fingers or with a beauty blender. On an everyday basis, I'm definitely that kind of girl: I like minimal makeup, that looks ethereal but in an effortless way. That's my makeup vibe. This is the perfect product for that.
The glow you achieve with this product is natural, but not in a bad way. It's definitely not the product to achieve that instagram highlight, but it's the perfect product for that healthy glow from within. The skin looks fresh, dewy and natural. It's definitely buildable, though, and can be more intense if you like that.
The durability is amazing, even on hot, humid days, and without setting spray.
I recommend this product if you are that kind of girl on an everyday basis. For a full glam, I don't think this is a good product.

I bought the ColourPop highlighter in Lunch Money because it had been so raved about online. Though it's a pretty champagne color, I was a little underwhelmed with the product after all the hype. The texture is kind of strange and bouncy, and I was confused at first at how I should apply it. The best way I've found is using a small stipple brush, but I'm just not over the moon about it. I find that on the skin, it highlights my texture and doesn't look as glowy as I would like. Not a bad product, just not as great as I expected. Would not repurchase.

I've tried these in Monster, Sticky Sweet and Glo Up so far. All three I've used for totally different purposes. I love that there are so many unique shades and that they have a colour for every skin tone. I'm pretty pale and I know those with darker skin tones can have a difficult time finding makeup that suits their skin tone. I find that most highlighters on the market seem to cater to light/medium skin tones and that most are a little dark on me personally.

Monster is a white-pink that is supposed to be holographic. It is slightly holographic but I found it was more of a pearly sheen. I didn't find it (or any of the highlighters actually) very pigmented and doesn't last very long given the cream formula. I actually use this as a topper over my other white powder highlighters and it compliments them well.

Sticky Sweet is a dark purple with pink glitter. This was obviously meant to be for darker skin tones, but I actually use it as a topper for their blush in Rain (a dark purple). It adds a little bit of sheen as the blush is quite matte. I think they look great together.

Glo Up is a bronze-gold, another shade designed for dark skin tones. I know this isn't what it was meant for, but I got it to use as a bronzer for contour. It is a lot more sheer than pictured in the swatches, but it does provide a nice, shimmery glow to warm up skin that is difficult to overdo. With being a cream formula, it is easier to get more precise application.

I did find all of these to be more sheer than I expected (I like my highlighter to be blinding) and fade more quickly than most powders. I find these apply better with fingers than a brush, or better yet a highlighting sponge, for higher impact and more precision. I love how versatile these are. There are shades that can be used for eyeshadow, blush, etc. I think these are adorable and affordable with a high quality formula.

I love colour pop, I tried their highlighter monster, love the color but on me it seemed like a faint sheen. Like I said the color is nice but if it was a little more intense in color I think I'd like it more. But I'm only speaking about monster , I have not tried their other highlighters .

I have the color Lunch Money and the color is beautiful. It doesn't have much gold once you swatch it and put it on which I kinda like since all my other highlighters are golden. This was 8$ and seems to be a lot of product, Net wt. 4.2g / 0.15oz. this is more of a natural looking highlight but you can intensify it by building it up. you only need a little on for it to show. The product feels nice when I touch it with my fingers, almost feels wet. It is a little hard to use with a brush so I tend to use my fingers. I just love the look and feel of it. The only thing is that you have to buy it online since there isn't an actual store for it but still good!
