Flesh Beauty Rise Flesh to Flesh Highlighting Powder ($28.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a rich, deep gold with warm, brown undertones and a pearly sheen. It had intense color coverage in a single layer, but I felt like I could use a lighter touch and build up coverage more gradually if desired. The powder felt smooth and velvety to the touch with moderate density, light slip, and no powderiness or kick up in the pan. The highlighter applied well to bare skin and blended out with almost no effort. On me, it lasted well for eight hours before it started to fade visibly.

The formula is supposed to have a "smooth, cream-like" texture that yields a "natural, radiant glow." The key phrase on this one is "natural, radiant glow," as I'd describe the powder highlighter as a light to moderate highlighter with respect to shine and finish. The powders had a very smooth, velvety texture that was slightly creamy but thinner and not quite as dense, but it didn't have any powderiness or dryness either. They had semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and blended out with little effort. They wore well for eight hours on average.
