Catrice Pinch of Rose 3D Glow Highlighter Review & Swatches

Pinch of Rose

Catrice Pinch of Rose 3D Glow Highlighter ($6.99 for 0.1 oz.) is a light-medium, pink-coral with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had rich, opaque color coverage that adhered well to bare skin with a smooth, even application. The powder spread easily across my skin and yielded a strong, metallic sheen that didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. The texture was soft, lightly creamy, and denser–but not heavy or thick–and incredibly finely-milled. On my cheeks, the color stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before I noticed fading.

Formula Overview

$6.99/0.1 oz. – $69.90 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “strong pigmentation” with a “creamy-soft powder texture” and designed without “any white pigments” to work on “especially” on “medium to dark skin tones.” The most remarkable aspect about the formula was that “creamy-soft” texture–it was incredibly finely-milled, cream-like, and looked like the baked-gelee kind of formula but was much softer, more loosely-pressed without being powdery or dry. All three shades had good pigmentation, a superb texture, and applied beautifully to my skin. They yielded a more metallic, high-shine finish that didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. They lasted around eight to nine hours on me before fading noticeably.
