There are four shades, and this is the lightest one, and the other three appear to be more bronze-like. The texture is incredibly soft, silky, and smooth; it's thin but not dusty or dry, and it's this thinner, silkier consistency that makes it easily blended on the skin. The finely-milled powder paired with fine shimmer keeps the finish from emphasizing pores (even when applied more heavily).
It had buildable coverage, as described, and it actually lasted for closer to nine hours on me. I can definitely see why this has been raved about over the years--glad I picked it up, as I see it finding its way into my go-to drawer (a great permanent highlighter? always room for one more!).

I was talked into buying this product by a MUA at Saks Fifth Avenue many months ago. This blendable and buildable highlighter goes on very smoothly, gives me a natural glow, and lasts a long time. I've tried other highlighters, but keep coming back to the one. Love it!
