JD Glow Essence Pressed Powder Illuminator ($16.50 for 0.28 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark copper with warm, rosy undertones paired with a metallic finish. It had an incredibly intense shine, which resulted in some emphasis of my skin's natural texture at higher coverage.
The texture felt smooth, lightly creamy without being too firmly-pressed into the pan nor was it thick in consistency, which ensured it picked up well with a tapered, highlighting brush for even application of product on my skin. It blended out with ease and yielded opaque coverage in a single layer, though one could sheer it out or pick up less for more buildable coverage. This shade stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.
