For your information: The founder of AURIC has been a personal friend for several years.
Auric Morganite Glow Lust Radiant Luminizer ($ 45.00 for 1.13 oz.) Is a light, peach-colored beige with warm undertones and a soft, bright sheen. It had a very fine pearl that looked more like a sheen than a shimmer, and the finish was rather dry, so it looked skin-like but not damp.
An “adjustable” cover has been described; It was sharper when mixed with the foundation, but could be a medium to semi-opaque cover that is applied to the highlights of the face as a stand-alone highlighter. The consistency was smooth, runny, and glided well without being too thin or too slippery; It actually felt more like a liquid and cream hybrid than most of the liquid illuminants I’ve tried over the years.
The product applied well to bare skin and foundation (as it wasn’t prone to lifting), and I had no problem mixing it with moisturizer or foundation as it didn’t affect longevity. It took nine hours alone before something faded.

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 lightbulbs (but not heavy or too thick), and the base also seemed to be more pigmented compared to other liquid lightbulbs.
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, regardless of 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 types 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 enjoy having to run to get this, but it is definitely worth trying in the future if you like the idea of a more subtle shine but like that kind of product.
