Auric Selentine Glow Lust Radiant Luminizer ($45.00 for 1.13 oz.) is a light peach with moderate, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and fluid but felt a touch thicker than most liquid luminzers I’ve tried, which seemed to give it a little more impact when used as a standalone product. It was still a thinner product, though, so it mixed well with moisturizers and foundations without sheering one’s coverage out too much.
It had buildable coverage that ranged from sheerer to more medium to semi-opaque (when used alone, dabbed onto the high points). The finish was lightly dewy and skin-like but not overtly shimmery. It wore well for nine hours as a standalone highlighter, and when I mixed it with foundation, it did not seem to impact the longevity of my base.

The formula is supposed to have buildable coverage so it can be used “alone” or “blended” with skincare/foundation or “used as a highlighter on top of foundation.”
The consistency was creamy, slightly thicker than a lot of liquid luminizers (but not heavy or overly thick), and it seemed more pigmented in its base compared to other liquid luminizers as well.
It had very fine pearl throughout that added luminosity and a subtle-to-light glow to skin with light dewiness. The shimmer was nearly undetectable when applied and diffused as a standalone product but still delivered a noticeable uptick in glowiness to my skin whether used alone or mixed in.
It was easy to mix in with moisturizer, primer, and foundation, and it also worked well patted on top of the high points of the face, whether my skin was bare or it was on top of foundation. I didn’t have issues with it lifting up my base products–set and unset–when applied on top. It dried down for the most part, retained light dewiness to the eye, and wasn’t tacky.
As a standalone highlighter, it wore well for nine hours before fading a bit, and I didn’t notice any impact to longevity when combined with base products.
It felt more like a cross between Charlotte Tilbury’s Hollywood Flawless Filter (which is thinner, a little runnier in comparison, and has more pronounced pearl/shimmer) and Natasha Denona’s original Face Glow formula (which was a thicker, cream consistency that squeezed out of a tube and was very glowing but not as visibly shimmery).
The reality is that if you’re someone who mixes these types of products with moisturizers or foundations, differences get more and more minimized (as they tend to sheer out, as they are supposed to). I wouldn’t expect that if you’re still working your way through something else and enjoy that that you’d have to run to get this, but it is certainly worth trying in the future if you like the idea of a subtler sheen but like this type of product.
