Spoils of Mars
Kaja Spoils of Mars Mochi Pop Bouncy Blendable Highlighter is a rich, berry pink with cool, blue undertones and a satin sheen. I found that the more I blended it out, the less shimmery it appeared; it had more of a “natural” finish that wasn’t matte but wasn’t truly dewy or shimmery either. The texture was smooth to the touch but firmer and less “sponge” like compared to some other powder-gel hybrid products (with enough pressure, I could feel it press down). There was light slip, which felt more like a powder as soon as I put my finger to the product.
It had buildable pigmentation from medium to mostly opaque, which didn’t apply evenly to my skin. I struggled to diffuse and move the product around evenly, and it ended up looking splotchy on me. It was a bit better over a foundation, as some of the natural unevenness of my skin was particularly accentuated by the depth/tone of the blush itself, and this shade didn’t lift up my base when I tested for that. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.
