Ciate Starburst Glow-To HighlighterCiate Starburst Glow-To Highlighter ($29.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a light gold with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had a high-shine finish even with a sheerer application, though it was not truly metallic until medium or greater coverage.
The formula is supposed to be an "ultra-soft luminizer" with "long-wear" and built-up to "intense, bold shimmer." The texture was soft, smooth, and a smidgen dusty to the touch, though it did not appear dry on the skin and didn't have much excess product kicked up in the pan after using it. It had medium coverage, which was buildable to semi-opaque coverage with two to three layers. It was easy to blend out the highlighter, and while very metallic, it seemed to reach to the point where the shine made my skin appear smooth instead of emphasizing my skin's natural texture.
