ILIA Showdown Daylite Highlighter Review & Swatches


ILIA Showdown DayLite Highlighting Powder ($34.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium-dark bronze with warm, reddish undertones and a lighter, more contrasting golden shimmer that gave it a luminous sheen. It appeared more metallic when swatched, but slight powderiness of the product seemed to tamp down some of that shine in practice.

Once I applied and buffed the powder into my skin, it was more luminous and sheen-like than overtly shimmery. It had opaque pigmentation that stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.
