For your information: The founder of AURIC has been a personal friend for several years.
Auric Axinite Glow Lust Radiant Luminizer ($ 45.00 for 1.13 oz.) Is a medium-dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had a buildable cover from semi-transparent to opaque depending on how you applied and used it. When mixed with products it seemed to expand and stretch slightly, while when I applied it as a standalone product it had a certain color and opacity (more medium).
It had a smooth, liquid consistency that was creamy without being too slippery or thin, which ensured that it spread well on bare skin as well as foundation (without lifting it up or creating spots). It had very fine pearls / shimmers throughout so it looked more like a skin-like shimmer than an open shimmer when used on its own. The product held up well for nine hours before visibly fading on me when used on its own and otherwise not affecting the longevity of my base.

The formula is said 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 appeared to be more pigmented compared to other liquid lightbulbs too.
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 worked well on the highlights of the face as well, 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, and I didn’t notice any impact on longevity when combined with basic products.
It felt more like a cross between Charlotte Tilbury’s Hollywood Flawless Filter (which is thinner and slightly rounder in 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 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.
