ILIA Novelty is a very warm-toned, medium brown with a matte finish. It is a permanent bronzer that retails for $34.00 and contains 0.42 oz.
ILIA Novelty NightLite Bronzing Powder ($34.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with strong, warm yellow undertones and a mostly matte finish. It was richly pigmented where a little went a long way, which wasn't in line with the buildable claim the formula made--this may be a deal-breaker for some and a reason to purchase for others.
The texture was soft, silky, and finely-milled with a bit of a velvety glide to it, and this shade was more blendable and forgiving over bare skin compared to the other shade. There was barely-there gold, micro-shimmer through it, which I think helped make it blend a bit better. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably on my skin.
As an aside, this is one of two shades (and it is the deepest), so it does a poor job of addressing the needs of our very diverse beauty community. It is still far too common to see one or two bronzers offered, and I wish more brands would build out their bronzer ranges to address the needs of more depths and undertones.

Sunkissed with a silky-soft touch, this supremely blendable powder is finely milled with pearl pigments for a luminous finish—and a natural warmth that you can dial up in intensity for a stronger contour.
