For your information: The founder of AURIC has been a personal friend for several years.
Auric Morganite 2.0 Glow Lust radiant luminizer ($ 45.00 for 1.13 oz.) Is a light beige with soft, warm undertones and a subtle, pearly sheen. It had a low sheen on the skin when applied alone as a stand-alone highlighter so it never emphasized the natural texture of my skin. When mixed with moisturizer or foundation, it gives noticeable luminosity without drastically changing the finish.
The consistency was smooth, light, and spreadable with a gel-cream feel that made it a bit denser / thicker compared to other competing products (which are more liquid / thinner). It had sheer coverage that could be increased by layering or applying. Apply the product well with your fingertips or a dab brush on bare skin or over the complexion. As a standalone highlighter, it stayed fine for nine hours before fading slightly.
Note: The brand reformulated Morganite’s color to make it “10% lighter” than the original, as there was significant demand for a lighter shade, and they decided to differentiate Morganite from the next lightest (Selenite).

The formula is said to have buildable coverage so that it can be used “alone” or “blended” with skin care / foundation or “as a highlighter over foundation”.
The consistency was creamy, slightly thicker than many liquid luminizers (but not heavy or overly thick), and it also appeared to be more pigmented in its base compared to other liquid luminizers.
It had a very fine pearl throughout, which gave the skin luminosity and a subtle to light glow with a slight numbness. The shimmer was almost imperceptible when applied and diffused as a stand-alone product, but it still gave my skin a noticeable boost in shine whether used alone or mixed.
It was easy to mix with moisturizer, primer, and foundation, and also worked well on the high parts of the face, whether my skin was bare or on top of the foundation. I had no problem lifting my base products – set and not set – when applied on top. It mostly dried out, retained a slight drop of dew on the eye, and was not sticky.
As a stand-alone highlighter, it held up well for nine hours before fading a little, and I didn’t see any impact on longevity when combined with base products.
It felt more like a mix of Charlotte Tilbury’s Hollywood Flawless Filter (which is thinner, slightly more fluid in comparison, and has a more pronounced mother-of-pearl / shimmer) and Natasha Denona’s original Face Glow formula (which was a thicker, creamy 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, the differences are minimized more and more (as they tend to drift away as it is supposed to). I wouldn’t expect if you are still working your way through something else and enjoying that you have to run to get this, but it is definitely worth trying in the future if you get the idea of a more subtle shine like but like this type of product.
