Brand Overview

Holographic Highlighting Powder is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: a pressed powder with a chromatic sheen to highlight skin. There are currently only two shades (lavender or peachy-beige) which won't necessarily work for everyone but if those shades speak to you, read on.

True to claim, Holographic Highlighting Powder delivers "multi-dimensional" iridescent shimmer that shifts in the light. Depending on how you apply it, the color payoff can be just enough to catch the eye or layered on a bit more strongly.

The texture is soft, smooth and easy to blend, and unlike many other Milk Makeup products, you don't have to worry about fragrance here. In fact, the coconut, mango and avocado oils used are actually beneficial for skin.

While the shade range is limiting in its options, if you dig the colors, this is interesting highlighter to consider (and it works great as an eyeshadow, too).

  • Soft, smooth, easy-to-blend pressed powder.
  • Delivers "multi-dimensional" iridescent shimmer that shifts in the light.
  • Goes on subtle but can be built up for a more noticeable pop.
  • Unlike many other Milk Makeup products, you don't have to worry about fragrance here.
  • The tiny shade range won't suit everyone's taste or skin tone.

Milk Makeup At-A-Glance


Milk Makeup is one branch of the Milk media company, based in New York and Los Angeles, where creativity and innovation are at the forefront. That vision echoes throughout their skincare and makeup lines, designed to create cool, effortless looks with easy application.

Since many Milk Makeup products can be used several waysa blush is a highlighter is an eyeshadowand since even some skincare products come in solid, swipe-on formulas, their target audience is a savvy girl-on-the-go: one whos not afraid to experiment with a low maintenance, high concept look. Milk makeup was created to travel well and often, since few products come in liquid form, and all can be applied without brushes, puffs, or applicators. Not everyone's ideal makeup can be done in five minutes in the back of a cab--but if you're that girl, you're a "Milk girl."

For the most part were impressed by Milk Makeups performance, design, and vibe, but their ingredient selection isnt exactly worry-free: While Milk Makeup advertises their products as made with the best possible ingredients, many of them, unfortunately, contain irritants such as citrus oils. A multi-tasking, time-saving product isnt worth your time or money if it also exposes your skin to troublesome ingredientsalthough some Milk products fare better in this regard, so do take a peek at our reviews!
