Makeup by Mario Pearl Soft Glow Highlighter ($28.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a very pale, golden peach with moderate, warm undertones and fine gold and pink pearl woven throughout a high-shine, metallic finish. It was less overtly shimmery as it was intensely shiny to the point where it looked almost glossy on my skin.
The texture was moderately dense, slightly firmer in the pan, but to the touch, it felt almost emollient and wet. There was no powderiness, which helped it apply well over bare skin as well as on top of base products without lifting them up. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation, which was a little more coverage than marketed, that stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.
