Auric Tourmaline is a moderately warm-toned, medium-dark brown with a luminous finish. It is a permanent highlighter that retails for $45.00 and contains 1.13 oz.
Auric Tourmaline Glow Lust Radiant Luminizer ($45.00 for 1.13 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with subtle, warmer red undertones and a natural sheen. The pearl throughout was very fine, so it almost didn't even look like it had shimmery, just added a bit of glow to the skin as it wasn't too dewy applied and blended out (or mixed with a base product).
The coverage was buildable and really depended on how it was used. It sheered out readily if desired, particularly when mixed with other products, while it had more semi-sheer to medium, buildable coverage when applied on its own (as a standalone highlighter, or in my case, more like a glowing bronzer).
The texture was smooth, lightweight, and spreadable with good glide across my skin, including over foundation as it did not lift up base products. It didn't feel tacky or wet after it was applied and blended out. It wore well for nine hours as a standalone cheek/highlighter product, and it did not impact the longevity of my foundation.
