It’s a new, limited edition highlighting powder described as a “luminous gold.” There is a strong, glittery overspray that sits on top of the powder, and while I did my best to brush it off, it took a few uses for it to really go away and reveal a more pearly finish. The initial glitter makes the finish more over-the-top with visible glitter particles that sit on the face without adding luminosity (they can look like dirt, if the light doesn’t hit them right!). To the touch, the powder had a drier consistency and didn’t feel finely-milled. I think it looked better on the skin than one would expect from the swatch, as the shimmer is softer and more luminous once blended and buffed into the skin. It had good pigmentation, and the color wore for just over eight hours before fading.
