Salt New York Bronze Radiant Crème Tint Pro ($16.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and fine, gold and copper pearl woven throughout that gave it a soft, luminizing sheen.
The texture was moderately emollient, lightweight but with some slip, so the highlighter spread well over bare skin as well as patted over base products (as it did not lift them up). It had semi-sheer, buildable pigmentation that blended out with ease. It wore nicely for seven and a half hours before fading/moving slightly.

The formula is described as “buttery soft, easy to blend” and is supposed to have “sheer, buildable coverage with a soft, skin-like finish.” Though it’s available in three types–highlighter, contour/bronzer, and blush–they formulas do not differ dramatically in terms of performance and feel.
It had sheer coverage that was buildable to more medium coverage, but getting full-on opacity didn’t seem like it was really in the realm of possibilities, so those who either need or want greater, truer-to-pan coverage may not find it as workable. I’d recommend sticking with deeper shades for those who need or want more coverage, too, as the lighter shades were less buildable.
As a cheek product, the formula applied evenly and blended out well on bare skin as well as patted over base products as it wasn’t a formula prone to lifting up complexion products. The finish was dewier, though it seemed to soften a bit after an hour or so of wear. They wear was between six and seven hours before there was noticeable fading and/or light movement/slide. I had the best wear when applied over a more matte foundation as compared to bare skin or a dewier/more luminous foundation choice.
