Sydney Grace Rhythm Highlighter ($12.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy beige with soft, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had rich, opaque pigmentation, where a little went a long way so I’d recommend using a lighter hand with this shade if you tend to like your highlighters sheerer or more buildable. The consistency was smooth, creamy, and dense without being too firmly-pressed in the pan. The highlighter applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even application that blended out easily along the edges. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me before fading a bit.

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.
