Phytosurgence Photo voltaic Sheen Spectral Shine Radiance Balm ($26.01 for 0.25 oz.) is a medium gold with hotter undertones and a satin sheen. It had extra opaque, buildable coloration protection with a denser, virtually stiff consistency that felt extra powder-like than cream like till one actually pushed and swirled in opposition to the product pan. It’s virtually extra like a creamy powder than a cream-to-powder based mostly on my expertise with cream-to-powder formulation (which really feel like a cream initially after which dry down as soon as utilized).
It delivered a refined glow, as marketed, that labored finest over naked pores and skin or a dewier, extra emollient base (like tinted moisturizer or a radiant-finish basis), and it softened and regarded even higher over time. Once I tried it over a extra matte basis (like Fenty Professional Filt’r), it regarded extra powdery than supreme and took extra effort to essentially diffuse and mix out in comparison with on high of naked pores and skin or a extra luminous basis (like La Mer The Comfortable Fluid). T
he texture was very fascinating and the denser, stiffer nature of it labored higher with a denser, extra flat-topped brush to choose up product evenly. The impact jogged my memory of the softly luminous glow of sheerer, liquid highlighters however with none dewiness, only a mild sheen. It lasted properly for seven and a half hours earlier than fading a bit.

It is alleged to be a “cream-to-powder formulation” that “might be utilized and handled like a pressed powder product.” It’s designed to present a “mild veil of luminosity” slightly than a “glow from area.”
The model recommends utilizing a brush to use it, although fingertips may very well be used; they are saying to keep away from to pushing as it might probably trigger the product to harden and turn out to be stiff over time. I favored utilizing a denser, extra flat-topped blush or highlighter brush for selecting up and buffing product onto my pores and skin with this formulation.
It is an fascinating texture, because it was, the truth is, “dry to the contact” as they model described. It felt extra powder-like than cream-like, and usually, cream-to-powder has a creamier really feel that dries all the way down to a powder-like end. As an alternative, these simply had extra glide than a standard powder (and thus, no powderiness both).
They labored finest on high of extra hydrated pores and skin or less-matte basis, as I discovered that they did not go on as seamlessly over medium-coverage, matte foundation–it regarded drier and extra powdery, although it softened and regarded higher after just a few hours of damage. They regarded significantly seamless, glowing however not overtly shimmery on naked pores and skin and on lighter-coverage, dewier foundations (like a tinted moisturizer or something with a extra luminous end).
The impact is actually pretty for individuals who want a extra hydrating/dewy base, whether or not that is naked pores and skin or one thing else, although. It offers a “veil” of glow that delivers a refined reflective high quality that does not intensify pores and skin texture and actually diffuses throughout the pores and skin because of the extra clear base. They wore properly for seven to eight hours earlier than fading a bit.
