Auric Pyrite Glow Lust Radiant Luminizer ($45.00 for 1.13 oz.) is a darker beige with muted, golden olive undertones and a pure sheen. It had positive pearl all through that was simply barely seen on my pores and skin as shimmer when utilized as a standalone highlighter however tended to look extra like a lightweight to reasonable glow that wasn’t overly wet-looking (so not that shiny/shiny).
It had a light-weight, flippantly creamy consistency that was extra substantial than plenty of liquid luminizers available on the market, which will be thinner and runnier (which aren’t essentially negatives or positives). It utilized evenly and blended out with ease over naked pores and skin or on high of basis, because it didn’t carry it up, used as a standalone highlighter. It had extra semi-sheer to medium, buildable protection utilized by itself and sheer to semi-sheer, buildable protection when combined in.
I didn’t have any points mixing it in with basis or a moisturizer, although the bottom shade will come by way of a bit extra noticeably with moisturizer. This shade stayed on properly for 9 hours earlier than displaying indicators of fading as a highlighter and didn’t influence the longevity of my base merchandise when combined in.

The system is meant to have buildable protection so it may be used “alone” or “blended” with skincare/basis or “used as a highlighter on high of basis.”
The consistency was creamy, barely thicker than plenty of liquid luminizers (however not heavy or overly thick), and it appeared extra pigmented in its base in comparison with different liquid luminizers as effectively.
It had very positive pearl all through that added luminosity and a subtle-to-light glow to pores and skin with gentle dewiness. The shimmer was almost undetectable when utilized and subtle as a standalone product however nonetheless delivered a noticeable uptick in glowiness to my pores and skin whether or not used alone or combined in.
It was straightforward to combine in with moisturizer, primer, and basis, and it additionally labored effectively patted on high of the excessive factors of the face, whether or not my pores and skin was naked or it was on high of basis. I did not have points with it lifting up my base products–set and unset–when utilized on high. It dried down for probably the most half, retained gentle dewiness to the attention, and wasn’t cheesy.
As a standalone highlighter, it wore effectively for 9 hours earlier than fading a bit, and I did not discover any influence to longevity when mixed with base merchandise.
It felt extra like a cross between Charlotte Tilbury’s Hollywood Flawless Filter (which is thinner, a bit runnier as compared, and has extra pronounced pearl/shimmer) and Natasha Denona’s unique Face Glow system (which was a thicker, cream consistency that squeezed out of a tube and was very glowing however not as visibly shimmery).
The fact is that when you’re somebody who mixes a majority of these merchandise with moisturizers or foundations, variations get increasingly minimized (as they have a tendency to sheer out, as they’re presupposed to). I would not anticipate that when you’re nonetheless working your means by way of one thing else and revel in that that you just’d should run to get this, however it’s definitely value attempting sooner or later when you like the concept of a subtler sheen however like this kind of product.
