MAC Hibiscus Kiss Bronzer (LE, $25.00) is slightly darker. Urban Decay Naked Flushed Bronzer (P) is similar. Dior Coral Glow Bronzer (LE) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
As mentioned in the review for Aphrodite’s Shell, the formula is supposed to wear for ten hours and have a luminous finish. The texture of this shade was softer and easier to work with; it was soft, somewhat silky, and blendable on the skin. It had better color payoff, though it was still a sheerer product that could be built up for about semi-opaque coverage in three to four layers. The shimmer in this shade was more pronounced, but it didn’t emphasize pores or the skin’s natural texture when I wore it. It only wore for eight hours, which is about average for most face powders, but it is short of the ten-hour wear time claimed.
