Melt Cosmetics Chocolate Dipped SexFoil Liquid HighlighterMelt Cosmetics Chocolate Dipped SexFoil Liquid Highlighter ($39.00 for 1.01 oz.) is a deep brown with subtle, warm red undertones and flecks of gold and purple sparkle throughout. It had semi-sheer, buildable pigmentation, as marketed, that spread evenly across my skin.
The applicator tends to pump out too much product if one is using it for the face (whether as a targeted highlighter or mixed into foundation) but works fine for body application; that being said, the product transferred onto clothes despite being marketed as transfer-resistant so it wasn't the most body-friendly formula either. It was a nice standalone highlighter, though, as it had good wear (nine hours) before fading.
The texture was smooth, lightweight, and thin with more of a fluid gel-like feel that spread very readily over my skin. For application to smaller areas, like cheekbones, it was easier to use a fluffy, synthetic brush to swirl and let the product "dry" slightly before applying to the area as this helped it from spreading too easily. The formula dried down quickly and was more powder-like, so there was still some room to work.
