I would be a liar if I said I wasn’t excited for this launch, which says a lot. I truly haven’t been excited about any new makeup launches for the past year because everything seems so money and revenue driven. I love innovative products that you can tell come from hard labour and passion.

I have watched Sams videos for years now and have always admired how she, to this day, has stayed true to who she is.

Auric has been in the plans for years and it’s really heartwarming to see her vision come to fruition.

As soon as these were available I made sure to get my hands on the Glow Lust in Selenite and the Smoke Reflect in Defiance.

If you would like to see an honest review from someone who bought the products with her own hard earned money, you are in the right place! You can watch the YouTube video or scroll on down to an in-depth review you can read.

If you watch the video, below are the timestamps:



First let’s talk about what this is. Glow Lust is categorized as a radiant luminizer. It’s meant to highlight, smooth and hydrate. You can apply this to your face as a primer/moisturizer, you can mix this with your moisturizer or liquid foundation and/or highlight your cheeks.

According to the website:

Packed with ultra-fine pearl and a skin-loving mix of squalane, glycerin and porcelain flower, this artistry-grade, adjustable formula gives you instant radiance and hydration. It can be worn alone, blended with your favorite skincare or used as a highlighter on top of foundation.

The formula is:

  • Glitter free
  • Fragrance free
  • Paraben free
  • Cruelty free

It comes in seven different shades (Morganite, Selenite, Pyrite, Cirtinie, Goldstone, Axinite and Tourmaline) for all skin tones, you get 1.18fl oz and it retails for $45.

  • Morganite is a light cool beige.
  • Selenite is a light warm beige.
  • Pyrite is a medium olive.
  • Citrine is a medium warm.
  • Goldstone is a medium deep warm.
  • Axinite is a deep neutral.
  • Tourmaline is a deep neutral cool. 

I personally got the color Selenite and first used this as a primer then highlighted my cheeks and bridge of the nose with it after the foundation was on. It has no scent, blends like a dream and gives you a truly goddess like healthy glow from within. There are no visible glitter specks and it doesn’t feel heavy on the face. I wore it all day and it didn’t cause any breakouts. WIN WIN in my book. I think the formula is beautiful and I will absolutely wear it every time I do my makeup.

I can’t forget to mention how stunning the packaging is. The bottle is a beautiful recyclable frosted glass. The pump is very efficient and sturdy. The cap is so hard to get off but it will be so useful for when I pack this and not worry even for a second that this is exploding everywhere.

Just look at that Auric glow lust glow in Selenite!!


As with the Glow Lust, let’s talk about what the Smoke Reflect is. It is an eye shadow duo. The bottom is a cream shadow that is meant to be put all over the lid and crease while the top is a micro glitter eyeshadow that is meant to be put in the center of the eye.

According to the website:

A smokeshow in a jar.

Heads will turn with these eye catching shadow duos. 

Create creamy-matte, or metallic-glitter looks with two luxe formulas (in a single gorgeous package). Under the top lid is a light-reflecting, micro-glitter eyeshadow infused with high-shine pearls. Inside the glass is a smooth, longwear, creaseless cream shadow.

The formula is:

  • Paraben free
  • Cruelty free
  • Gluten free
  • Artistry-grade

It comes in three different shades (Defiance, Temper, and Ego), you get  0.058 OZ. of powder & 0.176 OZ. of cream and each retail for $39.

  • Defiance is a bronze/gold.
  • Temper is a rose gold.
  • Ego is silver.

I personally purchased the shade Defiance because I am obsessed with bronze and gold tones. It just seemed like the best fit and something that I would pick up all of the time. I first applied the cream shadow all over my lid starting with tapping motions and then blended it into my crease. Once I felt like it was smoked out enough, which mind you happened extremely fast because these are so blendable, I swirled my middle finger in the powder shadow and tapped/swiped it on my lid. This created a very simple yet dynamic combo. I just looked very put together and like I tried harder than I actually did. A++ if you ask me.

I love the packaging with this product as well. The whole duo is very compact. The mirror is high quality and quite useful. The glass bottom seals the cream shadow in very well so technically it shouldn’t dry out. The color combos are so stunning and can easily be toned down for day time or toned up for night time.

Smoke Reflect in Defiance shimmering away!

Final Thoughts

I love these products which I think you gathered by now!

I think these are pretty innovative, very inclusive, very easy to use and very high quality. Both products are super blendable and I think everyone would find a shade and color combo that would look good on them. I literally couldn’t find one thing to be nit picky about.

The only con is be the price but for a high quality perfect product like such I think we are all very willing to save a little and splurge.
