Tarte Amazonian Clay Shimmering Powder ($30USD)
I bought this one in champagne because it actually looked like one big, huge (<---redundancy used for emphasis) great color for eyeshadow. Guess what? It actually is a nice sheer soft shimmery champagne beige. Nothing stark, making it very wearable in daytime light and even on bare skin. I apply this one as, like I mentioned as an eyeshadow, on my cheekbones, a touch on my forehead, and chin. Natural and not overdone.
Inglot AMC White Highlighting Powder ($18USD)
This one, I bought during their Black Friday sale which took awhile to receive. I waited so long for this one that it dulled my excitement when I received it. I am not saying it is a bad highlighter. It is a good one if you want a sharp contrast against the skin, more obvious highlighting and less of the luminous glow. This one has the shimmer of a metallic finish, a light touch is all that is needed. I put this on only on the eye area and cheekbones and nowhere else because it looks too obvious in daylight. Still it has a great texture that is much smoother than the Tarte and feels like a translucent face powder, light and airy.
My complexion brightens, I look awake and my brain starts remembering things from the 70's like the song "You Light Up My Life". I would put the youtube video of Debbie Boone on this blog but, honestly, I would want to stick my finger down my throat and purge the 70's out of me if I did. Therefore, for you readers who were just half of those little swimmers, you can just click this here. And me, I will just put on my elephant headphones and listen to Rush!
