Inspired by “extraordinary light phenomena”, Rituel de Fille’s latest release is a three piece collection of highlighters, Rare Light Luminizers.
Available in a set or individually, the three shades are Ghost Light, a cool-toned pale pink with a shift of violet blue, Anthelion, a gold with a subtle red-orange highlight, and Phosphene, a soft, pale beige glow with a hint of a peachy-blush shift. Each shade has Rituel de Fille’s signature subtle lavendar scent, which I always find calming and soft when I first apply their products, and it disappates before it becomes overwhelming.
I’ve been using them now for a few weeks, and I am surprisingly impressed by them. I say surprisingly only because these are a cream based product, which I haven’t always loved in the past. Cream blushes and contours are always extremely harsh on me, perhaps because I’m fair toned, but this works in favor of these highlights. I’ve previously used cream highlights and have had to apply a powder highlight over it for them to really stand out, but this isn’t the case with the Rare Light Lumizers. I have not used these on my eyelids, so I can’t say if they are safe or not (I’d say no, only because I am apprehensive always of applying any product with a scent to my lids), but my cheekbones look like they could cut glass when I have this on. My favorite shade in the collection has been Ghost Light, which wears as a opalescent violet on my skin tone.
