Sydney Grace Velvet Gold Highlighter ($12.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a pale, yellow gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had very finely-milled shimmer, but it was so bright and shiny that it was much more than a pearlescent finish. It had opaque pigmentation that adhered well to bare skin and blended out with minimal effort. The texture felt dense, lightly creamy, and smooth to the touch, but it picked up well with my tapered highlighting brush. It was just shy of pore-emphasizing territory on my skin, though someone who is more concerned about this may find it does for them. The color stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me before fading slightly.
