Editor's Review

Waking Dawn is described as a "light medium gold [with a Veluxe Pearl finish]." It's a bright, sunshine yellow with a frosted sheen and slight orange-y undertones. It had great pigmentation with a smooth, dense consistency that blended out easily without losing its intensity. On me, it started to fade after eight and a half hours of wear. theBalm #40 (P, $6.50) is lighter (90% similar). ColourPop So Meta (P, $4.50) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).
