Auric Goldstone is a very warm-toned, light brown with a luminous finish. It is a permanent highlighter that retails for $45.00 and contains 1.13 oz.
Auric Goldstone Glow Lust Radiant Luminizer ($45.00 for 1.13 oz.) is a medium brown with warmer, golden undertones and a natural sheen. The finish had fine pearl throughout that yielded a luminous glow on my skin but never looked shimmery--it was very "skin-like." When mixed in with foundation, it still amped up the glowiness of my foundation finish.
It had buildable pigmentation that ranged from sheerer to medium, depending on how much was applied and how it was done; when I applied a small amount as a standalone product, it yielded more semi-sheer to medium coverage that was easy to diffuse if desired. It had a fluid consistency that seemed a little thicker and creamier compared to most liquid highlighters, and it spread well over bare skin as well as over base products. This shade wore nicely for nine hours before showing signs of fading when worn alone. I didn't notice a different in longevity when mixed in with foundation.
