Editor's Review

The formula is supposed to have "translucent' coverage that "impart[s] a dewy, balmy sheen with zero sparkle." It's one of the more emollient consistencies I've come across in a cream highlighter these days! It looks like a solid, dome-shaped balm, but as soon as I touched it, the texture had high slip and felt almost oily as a result.

It didn't dry down and remained movable hours later, so the shorter-wear time (five to six hours) wasn't a surprise. The product didn't feel tacky, just emollient throughout; I have more "normal" skin on my actual cheek area where I tested this formula (I'm drier near my nose and on my nose). The highlighter was oilier and had higher-slip compared to the brand's Flush Balm Cream Blushes, though they felt more similar than not (but the ingredient lists are not that similar).
