Sydney Grace Royal Gold Highlighter ($12.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark gold with strong, warm yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. It was incredibly pigmented to the point where a little went a long way, and a lighter hand is highly recommended. The consistency was smooth, creamy, and dense without being stiff, though a moderately dense brush (like a tapered highlighting brush) worked best with this shade (over a fan brush or something in that vein). The powder blended out seamlessly on my skin, but it did emphasize my skin's natural texture when worn at semi-opaque or greater coverage. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading slightly on me.
