Rituel de Fille Rare Light Luminizer - Lunaris & Solaris - REVIEW & SWATCHES

Rituel de Fille was founded by three sisters who were inspired by the magical side of natural ingredients and the ritualistic, ceremonial power of pigment. As accomplished artists, all three bring a unique vision to our colors and imagery.  Every Rituel de Fille color is obsessively formulated in-house by the Ramos sisters to meet our exacting standards. We approach our formulation like potion-making: we carefully select each pigment, oil and wax for a clear purpose, and develop each color from the ground up to contain the fewest possible ingredients. We use nothing extraneous, and avoid fillers. This attention to detail creates intense color while maintaining velvety textures.  For obvious reasons I've been interested in this witchy brand for a long time, but somehow never got around to trying them out. Last week when they released their cream highlighter Rare Light Luminizer in two new limited edition iridescent shades, Solaris inspired by the sun and Lunaris inspired by the moon, I knew I finally had to make it happen. Available at Cult Beauty for us in the EU, at the Rituel de Fille website for US & Canada. LunarisNight // Moon Worship. The full moon glows softly, magnified by the atmosphere and casting an iridescent halo. Its cool-toned radiance is at once calming and enlivening, comforting and strange. Lunaris captures moonlight at your fingertips with an unexpected, hauntingly beautiful blue-shifting opal.SolarisDay // Sun Worship. The sun hangs low in the sky, reflected in glowing spires. Heat captured in the earth radiates upward, shimmering at the corona. Solaris captures the heat of sunlight in a flash of warm, soft, radiant red fire within translucent opal.  Both shades have the same formula, they are quite thin and slippery (dare I say oily?) and you need very little to get a good payoff. When they arrived I immediately smacked them on top of my unpowdered BB cream, they gave me that hydrated glossy finish that is practically impossible to get with powders. I'd say the formula could be hard to agree with for oilier skin types as it doesn't dry down, but anyone who wants weird colour in a hydrating "bare skin" formula will fall in love.There's not a single speck of glitter, the glow is a smooth veil of colour in a nearly clear base, both of them actually have a slight green hue that luckily blends out to nothing on the skin. Blue Lunaris looks the most intense in pictures, but they are pretty equal, pechy pink Solaris is a hard one to capture for some reason.
