The powders come in a gold round compact with a clear lid. There are three gorgeous sets of colors to choose from, which can be used as blush, bronzer or highlighter depending on your skin tone.

* Amber Nectar is a melange of peach and nudes.
* Hermosa Rose is a melange of warm bronzes that is slightly darker than Amber Nectar.
* Beauty’s Touch, my favorite, is a melange of pinks and cream.

The powders are finely milled and apply smoothly with sheer, buildable color. I like to swirl a big brush over them, tap off excess then buff into the skin for a soft, non-shimmery glow. More pics below!
