The texture was smooth, lightweight, thin, and quite fluid with a moderate dry down that left some dewiness but didn’t feel tacky nor was it prone to sliding around during wear. It applied well with fingertips or a brush over bare skin, but I did find a brush was more suitable to getting an even application and minimize the chance of lifting up base products. It lasted well for eight hours before fading a bit.

The formula is supposed to be “ultra blendable” with “sheer coverage” and have a “natural dewy” finish. It can be applied on its own, on top of products, or mixed in with foundation.
The coverage was very sheer, and the more fluid, almost watery, consistency made what was already sheer coverage have a tendency to be even sheerer. I found that the effect of it on its own, as a standalone highlighter, on top of products or bare skin was very subtle to the point where it looked more like faint particles of shimmer but little color and subtle luminosity.
Applied over bare skin, fingertips or brushes worked well, but I preferred a duo-fiber, more feathery brush for applying it over foundation as it seemed more prone to leaving behind fingertips when I tried patting it over foundation. It mixed well with different foundations, and it also was something that mixed well with moisturizers or more fluid primers.
It dries down for the most part, so it wasn’t prone to sliding around while worn nor did it feel tacky on. They wore around eight hours on average before fading.
