bareMinerals Joy Endless Glow Highlighter Review & Swatches

 

Joy

bareMinerals Joy Endless Glow Highlighter ($29.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy-orange with warm undertones and a moderate sheen. It had opaque color coverage but had a lighter, more white-based sheen/finish, so it looked a bit lighter and brighter once applied and blended out on my skin tone. The consistency was soft, smooth, and blendable with a light slip to it that gave it a creamier feel to the touch. The powder seemed to smooth out my skin a bit, and it definitely didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading slightly (which was exactly as long as the brand claimed!).

Formula Overview

$29.00/0.35 oz. – $82.86 Per Ounce

It’s supposed to be “long-lasting” with “8-hour wear” with a formula that “instantly minimizes the appearance of pores” while giving “lit-from-within luminosity.” The shades I tried had good pigmentation with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was slightly powdery but applied well to bare skin and blended out without issues. They had more of a moderate-level of luminosity–shimmery but not metallic. They wore for eight hours on me, which was as marketed, before fading noticeably.
