YSL Bronze Gold Couture Highlighter ($42.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a light-medium copper with warm, red undertones and a golden, metallic sheen. It had medium, buildable pigmentation (three layers for nearly opaque coverage) with a stiffer, firmer consistency that was harder to pick up with my brush. It blended out fairly readily when applied dry, but when I applied it with a wet brush, it was more challenging to blend out as the product adhered strongly wherever it was initially applied. I was able to buff out the edges for a luminous finish that did not emphasize my skin's natural texture in the end, but it was a surprise that I had to work at blending out the color at all. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

The highlighter can be used dry to achieve a subtle daily glow that brightens the complexion for a sun kissed radiance. It can also be used wet to boost shimmer intensity and achieve a bolder reflection. Use the soft, flexible brush included in the luxurious mirrored compact for ultimate pick up and control in application. Create dimension in your face by popping a layer of shimmer on top of the couture blush that flatters your skin tone.
