Products:
Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder Compact in Highlight 01
This Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder Compact formula is an incredible smooth baked formula that doesn't get too dry from the baking process. It leaves a natural glow that melds into your skin tone. This shade in person looks cooler pink tone beige on the skin, so if you think this is not pink, I don't blame you. ;)

Ingredients Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder Compact:
Mica (Ci 77019), Talc, Nylon-12, Dimethicone, Isopropyl Palmitate, Polysorbate 20, Acrylamide/Sodium Acryloyldimethyltaurate Copolymer, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Cetearyl Ethylhexanoate, Isohexadecane, Caprylyl Glycol, Sorbitan Stearate, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Phenoxyethanol, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Polysorbate 80, Hexylene Glycol, Lauroyl Lysine, Sorbitan Oleate, Tin Oxide, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Silica. May Contain (+/-): Ci 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), Ci 77491, Ci 77492, Ci 77499 (Iron Oxides).
Wear: I got 10+ hours to wear before I noticed fading without a primer or powder before I notice the product breaking down. With a primer and powder, it does last longer!

Packaging: Is a simple plastic compact with snap closure and a mirror in the lid.

Dior Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer Powder in 002 Pink Glow.
This Dior Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer Powder formula is an incredibly smooth and finely milled shimmer that applies evenly and can be built up or sheered out as needed. This formula is godly looking and borderline too strong, but the formula can handle being really sheered out for a more natural look.

Wear: I got 12+ hours to wear before I noticed fading without a primer or powder before I notice the product breaking down. With a primer and powder, it does last longer!

Packaging: Is a metal compact with an amagnetic closure and a mirror in the lid. The box also comes with a felted pouch and a small natural hair kabuki brush, while it is decent to use with the highlighter but not the best for it.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Pro Light Fusion Highlighter in 1 Golden Pink.
This MAKE UP FOR EVER Pro Light Fusion Highlighter formula is a finely milled shimmer that applies evenly and can be built up or sheered out as needed. This one is baked as well, so it not as buttery as some highlighters but not so dry that it doesn't apply smoothly on bare skin or over other products.

Wear: I got 10+ hours to wear before I noticed fading without a primer or powder before I notice the product breaking down. With a primer and powder, it does last longer!

Packaging: Is a black plastic compact with a snap closure and a mirror in the lid. 

Ciate London Glow-To Highlighter in Solstice.
This Ciate London Glow-To Highlighter in Solstice formula is a finely milled high shine shimmer that applies evenly and can be built up or sheered out as needed. This powder also has slightly larger pink shimmer particles that does make it slightly glitter looking on the skin. 

Ingredients Ciate London Glow-To Highlighter:
Talc, Silica, Mica, Triethylhexanoin, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Isododecane, Phenoxyethanol, Dehydroacetic Acid, Hydrated Silica, Decylene Glycol, Tin Oxide, Disodium EDTA, Lecithin, Tocopherol, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Citric Acid, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491).
Wear: I got 10+ hours to wear before I noticed fading without a primer or powder before I notice the product breaking down. With a primer and powder, it does last longer!

Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder Compact in Highlight 01 is the most peach tone pink out of this set and is relatively unique in that way but also the more skin like quality to the formula. I hope the other shades behave the same way as it gives options to their skin tones to use but this shade works better on my face as a pale girl to light-medium skin tones.

Wet n Wild MegaGlo Highlighting Powder in Blossom Glow, Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighters in Peach Lights, Dior Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer Powder in 002 Pink Glow, MAKE UP FOR EVER Pro Light Fusion Highlighter in 1 Golden Pink, and the Ciate London Glow-To Highlighter in Solstice. All of the shades are subtle warrants on the pale pink highlighter options that give you a real bright glow suited for pale to light-medium skin tone.

Jouer Powder Highlighter in Rose Quartz and Maybelline Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter in Molten Rose Gold are the deeper more pink base highlighters that do run either cooler tone or more gold toned on the skin than in the pan. Both are beautiful but suited more to light to medium skin tones. 

Winners:
Pick your preference people all of these powder are excellent! The only one it didn't like was the Ciate London Glow-To Highlighter in Solstice because of the larger shimmer particles.

My personal favourites where Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder Compact in Highlight 01 butIi get the same effect with Becca's Moonstone powder, and the Dior Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer Powder did manage to win me over as the best of the pale pink powders but there are a cheaper options than this one's hefty retail price.
