Melt Cosmetics Gold Ore SexFoil Liquid Highlighter ($39.00 for 1.01 oz.) is a light-medium gold with average, heat undertones and a shiny, pearl sheen. It had semi-sheer, buildable pigmentation that utilized evenly and blended out with little effort. It was simpler to get larger protection when utilized to bigger surfaces, but it surely could possibly be utilized with a fluffy, artificial brush (give it a few seconds to “dry” on the comb) and tapped on for higher protection on the face. I discovered fingertips had been extra liable to sheering out and diffusing the product too readily after I used this product as a standalone highlighter.
The feel was very fluid, nearly like skinny gel, that unfold simply and evenly over my pores and skin, after which it dried right down to a extra powder-like really feel inside ten seconds or much less. Whereas it didn’t rub off instantly, it didn’t take a lot–only a faucet of my fingertip–to get seen product to switch, so it may simply switch onto garments. The end was shiny, nearly wet-like, however the pearl itself extra finely-milled, so it didn’t emphasize my pores and skin’s texture. It stayed on properly for eight and a half hours earlier than fading visibly.
