Artist Couture Yasss Diamond Glow Powder ($ 27.00 for 0.16 oz.) Is a light, rosy copper with lavender and gold stains that sparkle over a slightly metallic finish. It had an almost opaque pigmentation in a single layer (obviously “layer” is as consistent as I can be as a human being as it is a loose product!).
The texture was light, finely ground, and miscible with good adhesion to bare skin, although there was a product that flew away when I was working to take it out of the jar because the powder itself was airier – thank goodness for the sieves! (I would even say I should only open it a quarter of the way; I always type out too much for photography.) The powder was applied evenly to my skin and did not emphasize the natural texture of my skin, but it had a very shiny finish Finish that looked almost wet. It was a good eight hours before it faded somewhat.

The formula is said to have a buildable sheen so that you can have a “subtle, glowing sheen” or build it up for an “intense, enhanced look”. If desired, they can also be applied to the eyes and lips. They appear to be opaque in advertising patterns and images, which I also noticed during testing. They were semi-opaque to opaque, although you could just use the smallest amount as a loose product to get something sharper.
The powder was very finely ground, which helped it spread well over bare skin and did not emphasize the natural texture of my skin. It seemed to have a glossier finish while still being noticeably shimmering / sparkling, and the glow could be built intensively metallic if desired. I liked to pick up the product on a tapered highlight brush and gently twisted the brush on the bottom of the lid, spreading the product evenly on my brush.
They carried me between seven and eight hours before they faded noticeably.
