Clionadh Minerva Highlighter Review & Swatches

Minerva

Clionadh Minerva Powder Highlighter ($12.50 for 0.21 oz.) is a very lightpink base with subtle, warmer undertones paired with iridescent teal shimmer that gave it an intense, metallic finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied fairly evenly to bare skin, but it seemed a little powdery and a touch thicker.

I felt like that texture translated a bit on my skin, so while it didn’t emphasize pores where it was the most reflective, it seemed to emphasize drier skin texture a bit. With a lighter hand or when applied over just-set foundation/skin, I didn’t haven’t that issue. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

$12.50/0.21 oz. – $59.52 Per Ounce

There’s not much that describes the formula other than it has a “soft, buildable application.” They tended to be quite pigmented–semi-opaque to fully opaque–with soft, smoother textures that weren’t too dense nor too softly-pressed into the pan. For sheerer or more buildable application, I’d highly recommend using a lighter hand a less-dense brush to do so.

The texture was typically smooth, slightly dense and a bit thicker than most powder highlighters on the market, so they often needed to be really buffed and diffused on the skin. The finishes were often more intense, leaning toward metallic, and occasionally, they emphasized my skin’s natural texture when worn at higher coverage levels. They wore between eight and nine hours on me for the most part.
