Tarte Sparkler Highlighter ($28.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a muted, medium, golden bronze with warm undertones and a glittery, moderately metallic finish. There also seemed to be a rosy tint to it which seemed to become more pronounced as I blended and diffused to the product out (this is a shade that I'd have expected to look quite warm on me, but it more subdued).
The formula is supposed to have 12-hour wear that has a "buildable glow." I've liked a lot of the highlighters Tarte has been releasing recently, but the texture of this one was chunkier and rougher than others; it was not necessarily gritty, but it was much more of a glitter-to-metallic finish, which resulted in less even distribution of product onto the brush and on the face. The glittery bits tended to separate from the more metallic base, and it seemed to have less color to its base as I blended out the product, even though it was rather pigmented! When I used a denser buffer brush at the end, it helped a lot to give it a smoother sheen that did not emphasize my pores or skin's natural texture. The highlighter lasted for eight and a half hours before starting to separate on me.
