Sydney Grace Melody Highlighter ($12.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a more frosted, metallic finish. "Frost" always reads more textured and larger in particle size compared to a very metallic finish, which will look smoother and shinier. As a result, I did experience some emphasis of texture when I applied this shade at medium or higher levels of coverage. It had nearly opaque pigmentation (but easily built up to full coverage!) that applied evenly and blended out nicely along the edges. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably on my cheeks.
