Kosas Tropic Equinox (High Intensity) (Highlighter) is a very warm-toned, light copper with a metallic finish. It is a highlighter that is permanent in this palette: Tropic Equinox (High Intensity).
Tropical Equinox (High Intensity) (Highlighter) is a medium copper with strong, warm golden shimmer throughout that gave it a soft, almost metallic finish when applied (and left to dry down). The base was slightly redder, so if it was applied more sheerly, the base tint came through. It had rich color coverage in one layer, though it could be applied with a lighter hand or sheered out more for buildable coverage if preferred.
The texture was moderately emollient with a touch of tackiness, so I felt like it had to be applied with a lighter hand (or even a sponge or a stippling brush) to ensure it didn't lift up foundation. The highlighter applied evenly and blended out well over bare skin. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.
