Auric Pyrite is a moderately warm-toned, medium-dark beige with a luminous finish. It is a permanent highlighter that retails for $45.00 and contains 1.13 oz.
Auric Pyrite Glow Lust Radiant Luminizer ($45.00 for 1.13 oz.) is a darker beige with muted, golden olive undertones and a natural sheen. It had fine pearl throughout that was just barely visible on my skin as shimmer when applied as a standalone highlighter but tended to look more like a light to moderate glow that wasn't overly wet-looking (so not that shiny/glossy).
It had a lightweight, lightly creamy consistency that was more substantial than a lot of liquid luminizers on the market, which can be thinner and runnier (which are not necessarily negatives or positives). It applied evenly and blended out with ease over bare skin or on top of foundation, as it did not lift it up, used as a standalone highlighter. It had more semi-sheer to medium, buildable coverage applied on its own and sheer to semi-sheer, buildable coverage when mixed in.
I didn't have any issues mixing it in with foundation or a moisturizer, though the base color will come through a little more noticeably with moisturizer. This shade stayed on nicely for nine hours before showing signs of fading as a highlighter and did not impact the longevity of my base products when mixed in.
