Products:
The ARTIST COUTURE Diamond Glow Powder in Coco Bling is a typically high pigment loose powder like an eyeshadow but it nice and smooth in texture which allows the powder to glide on and build up as needed over other product and even bare skin.

The Anastasia Beverly Hills Loose Highlighter in Snowflake & So Hollywood formulas do have Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate/Calcium Sodium Borosilicate as the glitter elements in these highlighters. So they do pack the bling in the finish, but it's a larger glitter compared to that of traditional mica powders, but I still blend out smoothly on the skin but it frostier in look.

Colour:
ARTIST COUTURE Diamond Glow Powder in Coco Bling is a pale ivory with a shimmer finish.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Loose Highlighter:
Snowflake is a white that is almost silver with a shimmer finish.
So Hollywood is a warm, rich gold with a shimmer finish.
Wear:
On the cheeks, it lasts 10 hours before noticing any fading, but the colour lasts 16+ hours over foundation and setting sprays.

Packaging:
The ARTIST COUTURE Diamond Glow Powder and Anastasia Beverly Hills Loose Highlighter are both in clear jars with a sifter. ARTIST COUTURE packaging has a rotating sifter cover, which is my favourite packing for loose powders in general. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Loose Highlighter lids are pretty, but the labels are hard to read without changing the angle of the light to read the black lettering. lol

Verdict:
I've been a rut when it comes to using pressed powders in general, but I forgot how much I used to like loose highlighters. It not as messy as you would think because your brushes pick the same amount of powder if you tape them down into the container s those that swirl you pressed powders. Not digging into the pan required as the biners used in pressed powder are missing to just get to the good stuff.

Do I recommend these brands loose powder, absolutely! But pick your shade because at the end of the day you will probably only need one. And this is coming from a highlighter addict.
