Sydney Grace Velvet Gold Highlighter Review & Swatches

February 07, 2019

Velvet Gold

Sydney Grace Velvet Gold Highlighter ($12.00 for zero.25 oz.) is a pale, yellow gold with heat undertones and a metallic sheen. It had very finely-milled shimmer, but it surely was so brilliant and glossy that it was rather more than a pearlescent end. It had opaque pigmentation that adhered nicely to reveal pores and skin and blended out with minimal effort. The texture felt dense, frivolously creamy, and clean to the contact, but it surely picked up nicely with my tapered highlighting brush. It was simply shy of pore-emphasizing territory on my pores and skin, although somebody who’s extra involved about this will discover it does for them. The shade stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours on me earlier than fading barely.

Formula Overview

$12.00/zero.25 oz. – $48.00 Per Ounce

The highlighters are imagined to be “smooth and pigmented” that “blend like a dream” and “last all day long.” The majority of the shades within the vary are extremely pigmented with a creaminess to the feel that makes them a cinch to use and mix out on my pores and skin. I used to be most impressed by how mushy, virtually cream-like the powders have been, but they weren’t too loosely-pressed nor have been they susceptible to powderiness. Some of the finishes are very metallic or frosted, so when worn at semi-opaque or greater protection ranges, they’ll emphasize my pores and skin’s pure texture barely. They have worn between eight and 9 hours on me.
