Update 10/20/16: Our Reformulated Hilite Green is more gold/green in hue when rubbed onto a dark background.
Our family of Hilites are all white-appearing powders which have a "hilite" of a unique hue (gold, orange, red, copper, reformulated green, violet, or blue). Hilite colors are also known as "interference" or "splendid" colors.
Interference pigments look like white powders but when wetted (lip gloss, nail polish, cream eye shadow) used in clear media (melt and pour soap, gel candles), or rubbed on the skin (mineral makeup), they burst into iridescent hues. If you love color will no doubt find a need for interference pigments along the way.

These are perfect for adding a little surprise or zing to your eyes. Once you have maybe a nice purple eyeshadow made you could add a little sparkle turquoise or starlight gold for added bling.
Great addition to the pop-sampler, makes nice brow highliters by themselves. I use the starlight and sparkles with matte shadows to get more depth, especially great with black matte shadows, makes for great night-on-the-town looks.
Great addition to palette. The hilites have a refined sheen to them that makes me think of fine pearls...but with color in their reflection of the light.
They make crazy duo-chromes. I used a black eyeshadow base and created a wonderful peacock look. This is worth adding to your collection of pigments.
Those who are purchasing any eyeshadow kits like Absolutely Everything, or EZ Eyeshadow, should not hesitate to add interference and hi-lights to expand the limits to your creativity. Imagine how a smidge of these colors can dramatically change the look from ok to wow.
The Hilites, Travelers and Sparks make what I make extra special and exciting. Hard to catch on camera, but worth the effort every single time. These just add something so special and daring to the colors without making them seem like too much. No clowns here :)
why didn't I see these before ? duh they are awesome . They can add depth and tone without overpowering colors. and alone they are so pretty
I made the most beautiful soft pink eyeshadow with a gold hilite to it and it looks so beautiful. It doesnt over power the color but adds that extra pearlescent sheen of which ever hilite you use. Also gorgegous on nail polishes, lippies and all over powder.
