Sun Kissed Peach
Sydney Grace Sun Kissed Peach Highlighter ($9.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a bright, light pink-peach base with light, peachy-gold shimmer that gave it a more metallic finish. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer where a little went a long way.
The slightly firmer, denser consistency made it easier to work it as it wasn’t powdery so I had no trouble controlling how much I got on my brush. The highlighter applied evenly to bare skin and blended out readily without emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours 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.
