Rare Beauty Reflect Positive Light Liquid Luminizer Highlight ($22.00 for 0.5 oz.) is a deep, reddish-brown with moderate, warm undertones and a smooth, lightly metallic sheen. The finish intensified as coverage increased, so how much "glow" was achieved was all in the application, but it was more of a moderate glow at semi-sheer to medium coverage application.
The texture was very lightweight and emollient, like a serum rather than a traditional liquid blush (which tends to have a wetter, more watery feel with less slip). It worked well patted on top of skin or over foundation with both fingertips as well as a brush, though I found a brush helped to ensure I didn't over-apply and was also the most foolproof way to apply without disturbing base products. With a fingertip, the first time I tried it over foundation, it pushed some of it around slightly, but a second time, where I dotted on gently, waited a few seconds, and then diffused, it worked fine.
It was a higher coverage formula applied, and per the brand, "one to two dots" was recommended to start, which produced the softer glow they described but still had a fair amount of coverage. It was easy to get opaque, more metallic coverage with more like a heavy press/dab of the doe-foot applicator. The color stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading slightly.
