According to the brand, it’s supposed to “brighten cheeks” and “subtly highlight or enhance” the skin. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, slightly buildable, coverage paired with a silky-smooth texture that was just a little dusty. I don’t think it read powdery on the skin, and I found it harder to get the peachy color to mix with the beige color unless I used a dense brush. On my skin tone, it added subtle warmth and a natural finish to the skin, and it is sheer and thin enough that I could use it all-over, but it may be too much color on fairer complexions to be used all-over. The powder wore well for seven and a half hours on me. I would describe this more as a lightly brightening powder with a natural sheen, but as a more traditional highlighter, it is extremely subtle–which may or may not be what you have your eye on.
