Anastasia Amrezy Highlighter ($28.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a light-medium, champagne gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation, which was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The consistency felt smooth to the touch with a denser, firmer texture that ensured there was no excess product kicked up when used, but it wasn’t stiff to work with, so it picked up well on feathery brushes and blended out easily on my skin. It had a strong shine on my cheeks but did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me.
It seemed to very similar (and the ingredient lists are extremely similar) to the brand’s Illuminators, which I believe have been discontinued, but it isn’t an exact dupe for any of the four shades I have from it (So Hollywood is definitelyd arker and more orange-based).
