Phytosurgence Cosmic Cinders Spectral Shine Radiance Balm ($26.01 for 0.25 oz.) is a medium-dark copper with reasonable, heat undertones and a delicate sheen. It had extra opaque colour protection that adhered evenly to reveal pores and skin and blended out with ease. I discovered it labored as properly on high of a extra emollient/dewier base (like La Mer The Delicate Fluid) however tended to look just a little cakey when utilized on high of a extra matte basis (like Fenty Professional Filt’r).
The product had a denser, stiffer really feel to it within the pan, and the creaminess was extra obvious if one swirled a fingertip into the pan extra closely. The model advisable to make use of a brush over fingertips because the latter might trigger the product to stiffen over time, and I’d agree; a brush was most foolproof and ensured the product didn’t get too compacted over time. For working over a matte basis, although, I felt like I wanted the heat of my fingertip over a brush, however a brush was my most popular methodology for engaged on high of naked pores and skin or over a dewier base.
It delivered a barely-there glow, which was as supposed, and by no means emphasised my pores and skin’s pure texture consequently. The product appeared to grow to be extra seamless after an hour or so of damage, even over matte basis. It stayed on properly for eight hours earlier than fading noticeably.

It is imagined to be a “cream-to-powder method” that “may be utilized and handled like a pressed powder product.” It’s designed to present a “mild veil of luminosity” slightly than a “glow from house.”
The model recommends utilizing a brush to use it, although fingertips could possibly be used; they are saying to keep away from to pushing as it may well trigger the product to harden and grow to be stiff over time. I favored utilizing a denser, extra flat-topped blush or highlighter brush for choosing up and buffing product onto my pores and skin with this method.
It is an fascinating texture, because it was, in truth, “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 appeared drier and extra powdery, although it softened and appeared higher after a number of hours of damage. They appeared notably 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 favor a extra hydrating/dewy base, whether or not that is naked pores and skin or one thing else, although. It provides a “veil” of glow that delivers a delicate reflective high quality that does not intensify pores and skin texture and actually diffuses throughout the pores and skin as a result of extra clear base. They wore properly for seven to eight hours earlier than fading a bit.
