We were inspired by this scene to bring you this dream-in-a-bottle, so that you can have your very own transformation. The moisturising surge of liquid pearls will dance whispers on your skin till dawn. Be as playful as the magical being that you are… you’ll still look as sublimely refined and urbanely elegant as the Moon itself. The tiny reflective particles will illuminate you anywhere you choose, with a sinfully quivering effect to quietly showcase your beauty. Bring fine-spun silver thrills by night or by day – to eyes, brows, temples, shoulders… No one can eclipse you, Moon Mermaid.
This multipurpose water-based fluid blends easily with moisturiser, or with foundation, to customise the look – to yours alone. Create an inside-out illumination effect and blend it to a thin, refined wash of pearls. Light fragrance of Cucumber with a touch of Peach Flower will add to your application pleasure. A trio of shades with Melissa extract to soothe, and Vitamin E to guard against ageing. The highlighting liquid can be used alone or over moisturiser and as a highlighter, over foundation, too.
Rouge Bunny Rouge is a UK-based luxury cosmetics brand that is available to U.S. residents through BeautySage. Their Seas of Illumination Highlighting Liquids are liquid illuminators available in 2 shades. This review is for the shade Sea of Tranquility, which the company describes as a pale milky opalescence, with super fine pink, white and gold pearls.
And, fyi, you can get $10 offany $95+ purchase at BeautySage (where Rouge Bunny Rouge is sold) with code EBMAR, now through 4/16.
This highlighter comes in a frosted glass bottle with a snap-on cap and a pump dispenser. The bottle is weighty and luxurious, with a leaf design in black enveloping the bottle.
Sea of Tranquility is a milky, extremely pale pink color that looks almost white. It has an opalescent quality to it that catches the light without utilizing any noticeable shimmer or glitter. The luminizing effect you get is strong but avoids looking gaudy because of the product’s formula and non-glittery finish.
This luminizer has a thin, watery liquid formula that blends immediately and can be layered for an even more intense finish. The product sits beautifully on the skin and lasts the entire day.
My only criticism of this highlighter (and what keeps it from getting a perfect 10) is the inclusion of fragrance, which you can smell when using the product. Fragrance is a skin irritant and should not be included in skincare or makeup.
Ease of Use: 9.75/10
The thin liquid formula blends out immediately. Work with a small amount of product at a time and layer if you need a more intense effect. This product should go underneath any powder you apply to the face, and can go either under or over other cream/liquid/gel products.
For $45.00 you get 1.01 ounces of product. This is an expected amount of product and price-point for a luxury brand.
