Down the Aisle
Sydney Grace Down the Aisle Highlighter ($12.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a soft, peachy-pink with warm undertones and a strong sheen. It had excellent color coverage in a single layer, which applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even application that did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. The highlighter had a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that was firmer in the pan but not stiff to work with, so it blended out easily on my cheeks. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading slightly on me.

The highlighters are supposed to be "smooth and pigmented" that "blend like a dream" and "last all day long." The majority of the shades in the range are incredibly pigmented with a creaminess to the texture that makes them a cinch to apply and blend out on my skin. I was most impressed by how soft, almost cream-like the powders were, yet they weren't too loosely-pressed nor were they prone to powderiness. Some of the finishes are very metallic or frosted, so when worn at semi-opaque or higher coverage levels, they can emphasize my skin's natural texture slightly. They have worn between eight and nine hours on me.
