Lethal Cosmetics Quantum Pressed Highlighter Review & Swatches

by Jeremy


Lethal Cosmetics Quantum Magnetic Pressed Highlighter ($18.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a medium, pink-coral base with a lighter, golden shimmer throughout that gives it a soft sheen. It had opaque pigmentation paired with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that wasn’t powdery but not too firmly pressed into the pan. Compared to the swatch, it applied and blended out to a more luminous finish–glowing but not overtly shimmery or metallic. It wore well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Formula Overview

$18.00/0.18 oz. – $100.00 Per Ounce

The formula should have a “radiant glow” that is “never glittery” and long-wearing. The pigmentation ranged from semi-opaque to opaque, but all were buildable if desired. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable without being too firm or too loosely pressed, making it easy to adjust pressure or use feathery and denser brushes to change the application results.

The finish was more luminous and glowing without being overtly shimmery for most shades. I had no issues with the formula emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. They lasted around eight hours on me before showing signs of fading.
