It is with great regret that I write this raving review, as AOS has recently been discontinued. Nono, I'm not trying to taunt you, I hear you US ladies can still find it on some drugstore racks, Cdn ladies can check out the big Zellers/Walmart locations. Plus you could always try swapping & ebay.
This highlighter is a slightly-pinkish-beige flesh colour with a cool undertone and silvery sheen, so it may not be ideal for dark/golden toned ladies. It's quite finely milled, no visible particles that are bigger than others so even application is easy to achieve. A powder or skunk brush would work best.
So the colour's great, but I'm sure you're wondering about the wearing power, as that's usually the biggest weakness with drugstore makeup. I'm pleased to say that it lasts 7, 8 hours no problem (without oiliness or sweating). On hot, oily days, it lasts around 4, 5 hours. To me this wearing power is on par with most high-end brands.
The brush it came with was useless - size too small (~ average thumb) for a highlighting job, and bristles too flimsy to be able to transfer any product. This is to be expected of a $4 product so I don't hold it against them.
You know it's true love when a woman finds her phlegm-coughing sick boyfriend ravishing, and you know it's true love when a woman tenderly tapes up her broken janky compact, checking the edges are symmetrical and nice :)
