Sydney Grace Duchess is a moderately warm-toned, medium gold with a luminous finish. It is a permanent highlighter that retails for $9.00 and contains 0.25 oz.
Sydney Grace Duchess Highlighter ($9.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a medium-dark gold with strong, warm yellow undertones and a luminous sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, almost cream-like feel to it, so it was dense without being too firmly-pressed into the pan.
I had no trouble picking up product with a brush--I'd actually say to use a lighter hand and build up if you tend to like your highlighter sheerer--and applying it to bare skin as the highlighter went on evenly and blended out with ease. It added a noticeable glow but didn't emphasize my skin's natural texture. It wore nicely for nine hours before fading a bit.
