For your information: The founder of AURIC has been a personal friend for several years.


Auric Tourmaline Glow Lust Radiant Luminizer ($ 45.00 for 1.13 oz.) Is a medium-dark brown with subtle, warmer red undertones and a natural sheen. The pearl was consistently very fine, so it almost didn't even look like it had a shimmer. She only added a little shine to the skin as it wasn't applied too wet and faded out (or mixed with a base product).

The cover was buildable and really depended on how it was used. If desired, it shimmered out slightly, especially when mixed with other products, while when used on its own it had a semi-transparent to medium buildable cover (as a standalone highlighter or, in my case, more like a glowing bronzer).

The texture was smooth, light and spreadable with good glide on my skin, even over the foundation, as it did not lift the base products. It didn't feel sticky or wet after applying and fading it out. It carried well as a standalone cheek / highlighter product for nine hours and didn't affect the longevity of my foundation.

Formula overview

$ 45.00 / 1.13 oz. – – $ 39.82 per ounce

The formula is intended to have a buildable cover so that it can be used "alone" or "mixed" with skin care / foundation, or "used as a highlighter on foundation".

The consistency was creamy, slightly thicker than many liquid bulbs (but not heavy or too thick), and the base appeared to be more pigmented compared to other liquid bulbs as well.

It had a very fine pearl throughout, which gave the skin luminosity and a subtle to light shimmer with light moisture. The shimmer was almost undetectable when applied and diffused as a stand-alone product, but it gave my skin a noticeable increase in shine, regardless of whether it was used alone or mixed.

It was easy to mix with moisturizer, foundation, and foundation, and it also worked well on the highlights of the face, whether my skin was bare or on the foundation. I had no problem lifting my base products – set and not set – when applied on top. It mostly dried out, kept track of the slight moisture, and wasn't sticky.

As a standalone highlighter, it carried well for nine hours before it faded a little, and I didn't notice any impact on longevity when combined with base products.

It felt more like a cross between Charlotte Tilbury's Hollywood Flawless Filter (which is thinner and slightly rounder by comparison and has a more pronounced pearl / shimmer) and Natasha Denona's original Face Glow formula (which was a thicker, cream-colored consistency that squeezed out became) a tube and was very luminous, but not so visibly shimmering).

The reality is that when you are someone who mixes these type of products with moisturizers or foundations, differences are always minimized more and more (as they tend to blend out like they're supposed to). I wouldn't expect this if you are still working your way through something else and enjoying that you would have to run to get this, but it's definitely worth trying in the future if you like the idea of ​​a more subtle shine but like that kind of product.
