Natasha Denona Medium (02) Face Glow Cream Shimmer ($38.00 for 0.32 oz.) is a light-medium, yellowy gold with moderate, warm undertones and a dewy, pearlescent finish. It had buildable coverage from medium to semi-opaque applied directly from the tube with more semi-sheer to medium coverage when applied with fingertips or a brush.
The highlighter had a smooth, moderately emollient texture to it that spread easily across bare skin as well as applied on top of foundation. It was a bit more of a gel-cream to me, as there was more substance to it but it wasn’t heavy or thick. The product doesn’t dry down, so the finish is definitely dewy, bordering on wet-like, but manages to stay on well for a good eight hours before the product looked like it was moving a bit.
