Dusk

Sephora Dusk Golden Hour Highlighting Powder ($16.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a soft pink with warm undertones and golden shimmer. It has a luminous finish–glowing but not metallic or too reflective.

The formula is supposed to have a “soft, luminous glow with a sheer wash of color” that can be “worn alone or layered.” It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was buildable to full coverage. On very, very fair skin tones, it might show some visible color, but on my skin tone it was more like a true highlighter. The consistency was very smooth without being dusty or powdery in the pan–it almost feel like a really dense cream–but it yielded in the pan and was easy to blend out on the skin. This shade wore well for eight hours before fading slightly.

Another beautifully soft, non-metallic highlighter! Loving the gold shimmer within the soft pink shade, it reminds me a bit of of MAC Pearl Blossom!
