Melt Cosmetics Nova Digital Dust Highlight ($39.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium-dark copper with warm, brown undertones and a luminous sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with less than a layer patted on top. The powder was moderately firm in the pan, smooth, and easy to blend out on the skin--it felt "dry" in a way but wasn't actually dry or dusty. The finish was luminous enough to catch and reflect light noticeably, but it did not emphasize my skin's natural texture.
