Bronzed Radiance

Sydney Grace Bronzed Radiance Loose Highlighter ($8.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark copper with moderate, warm orange undertones and warmer, golden shimmer and micro-sparkle. It had an intense glow–both metallic but also more sparkly and visibly shimmery–with rich color coverage in a single layer. The loose format does make it easy to pick up quite a bit of product, but you definitely don’t need much for fuller coverage.

The texture had larger sparkles, and I found I had to apply it with a rounded, moderately-dense brush to get an even application of product and some of the sparkles disappeared after I had buffed and blended the product out. It was as blendable as other shades in the same formula, though it was workable. It lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Definitely a beautiful highlighter for richer skintones! And a super glowy bronzer for medium tones, too. Very good job bringing greater diversity of shades to the highlighter line, SG!

I have an old Maybelline loose eyeshadow (Downtown Brown, I think it’s called) and when I saw this photo, I thought it was THAT eyeshadow (packaging is so similar as is the colour).
