Bronze (Highlighter) is a soft copper with warm, golden pearl. It had semi-sheer coverage, which was somewhat buildable, but it was thin and emollient enough that practically speaking, it ends up looking more sheer to semi-sheer once blended out on the skin (and that's what the brand marketed it as). The texture was firmer in the tube and had less slip and glossiness compared to the balm, but it still had a soft, dewy finish on my skin. It applied well over bare skin, but it was harder to apply over complexion products without disturbing my face. I had the best luck applying it over foundation by using a stippling brush to pat and tap the color into place, and then using a dampened sponge to blend and diffuse (which I had also used with my foundation). On its own, the color stayed on well for eight hours on me.
