Auric Morganite 2.0 Glow Lust Radiant Luminizer ($45.00 for 1.13 oz.) is a lightweight beige with delicate, heat undertones and a advantageous, pearly sheen. It had a low-level sheen on pores and skin, utilized by itself, as a standalone highlighter, so it by no means emphasised my pores and skin’s pure texture. When combined in with moisturizer or basis, it added noticeable luminosity with out drastically altering the end.
The consistency was clean, light-weight, and spreadable with a gel-cream really feel that made it a little bit denser/thicker in comparison with different competing merchandise (that are extra fluid/thinner). It had sheerer protection, which may very well be dialed up by layering or making use of extra. The product utilized nicely with fingertips or a stippling brush on naked pores and skin or over complexion merchandise. As a standalone highlighter, it stayed on properly for 9 hours earlier than fading barely.

The method is meant to have buildable protection so it may be used “alone” or “blended” with skincare/basis or “used as a highlighter on high of basis.”
The consistency was creamy, barely thicker than loads of liquid luminizers (however not heavy or overly thick), and it appeared extra pigmented in its base in comparison with different liquid luminizers as nicely.
It had very advantageous pearl all through that added luminosity and a subtle-to-light glow to pores and skin with gentle dewiness. The shimmer was practically undetectable when utilized and subtle as a standalone product however nonetheless delivered a noticeable uptick in glowiness to my pores and skin whether or not used alone or combined in.
It was straightforward to combine in with moisturizer, primer, and basis, and it additionally labored nicely patted on high of the excessive factors of the face, whether or not my pores and skin was naked or it was on high of basis. I did not have points with it lifting up my base products–set and unset–when utilized on high. It dried down for probably the most half, retained gentle dewiness to the attention, and wasn’t cheesy.
As a standalone highlighter, it wore nicely for 9 hours earlier than fading a bit, and I did not discover any influence to longevity when mixed with base merchandise.
It felt extra like a cross between Charlotte Tilbury’s Hollywood Flawless Filter (which is thinner, a little bit runnier as compared, and has extra pronounced pearl/shimmer) and Natasha Denona’s authentic Face Glow method (which was a thicker, cream consistency that squeezed out of a tube and was very glowing however not as visibly shimmery).
The actuality is that in case you’re somebody who mixes a lot of these merchandise with moisturizers or foundations, variations get an increasing number of minimized (as they have an inclination to sheer out, as they’re presupposed to). I would not anticipate that in case you’re nonetheless working your means via one thing else and luxuriate in that that you simply’d should run to get this, however it’s definitely price attempting sooner or later in case you like the concept of a subtler sheen however like the sort of product.
