bareMinerals Joy Endless Glow Highlighter ($29.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy-orange with warm undertones and a moderate sheen. It had opaque color coverage but had a lighter, more white-based sheen/finish, so it looked a bit lighter and brighter once applied and blended out on my skin tone. The consistency was soft, smooth, and blendable with a light slip to it that gave it a creamier feel to the touch. The powder seemed to smooth out my skin a bit, and it definitely didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading slightly (which was exactly as long as the brand claimed!).

It's supposed to be "long-lasting" with "8-hour wear" with a formula that "instantly minimizes the appearance of pores" while giving "lit-from-within luminosity." The shades I tried had good pigmentation with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was slightly powdery but applied well to bare skin and blended out without issues. They had more of a moderate-level of luminosity--shimmery but not metallic. They wore for eight hours on me, which was as marketed, before fading noticeably.
