It’s supposed to give “an illuminating, sun-touched complexion with a subtle glow.” The heart is the darker, more bronze-hued shade, while the surrounding area is a more golden highlighting shade. While you can, in theory, use them separately, neither is large enough to accommodate an average-sized powder blush brush without getting some of the secondary shade on the brush. You’d need to use a small cheek or larger eye brush to use them separately. It’s more usable swirled together or leaning to one shade more than the other (so more illuminating vs. more bronzing). The consistency was soft, smooth, and blendable, while the finish was glowing without emphasizing pores. It had good color payoff that could be diffused easily or applied heavily (without a lot of layers). The color wore well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.
