What it is formulated WITHOUT:
Review: I decided to pass on the highlighter at the time I purchased the primer and foundation mainly because of the price. It has the same value as the foundation and a couple of dollars more than the primer. I honestly felt that it was over priced and I understand that there are two different textures and finishes in one highlighter compact. However, in comparison to other high quality and newly released highlighters such as the Desi X Katy Highlighter from Dose of Colors which retails for $28 and contains more product, they could have priced this between $25 and $30. That is my main issue with this product.
The box packaging is similar to the foundation (as you may have already read in my previous review) only in a square form. The highlighter packaging comes in a white plastic octagon compact with the Fenty Beauty brand printed on it. It comes with two different highlighter textures and finishes. Mean Money (left side of the compact, top swatch) is a soft and subtle satin finish powder that you can use when you want that low-key glow from within look. Mean Money is more of a glow powder than a highlighter, in my opinion. Hu$tla Baby (right side of the compact, bottom swatch) is a soft powder but it has a very high-shine pigmentation. This is perfect for days you want to chanel the outer space cause your highlighter is lit and beaming.
There is a little fall out from the powders, but that is typical on any soft-pressed powder. The highlighter applies nicely on the skin, whether you want a natural or beaming glow. It is also long-wearing. It stays put for an entire day (between 8-10 hours) without losing its luminosity. It is not cakey and sits nicely on top of the skin.
Would I repurchase? Probably not the duos, but the single compact Killawatt Highlighters since they contain more product and if they release new shades that can be used for an every day look.
