It’s Here! The Anti-Highlighter That’s Going Viral

The answer to your inner ‘goth girl’ prayers, Rituel de Fille’s new anti-highlight highlighter has set the beauty world a-swatching. The latest, so weird-its-wonderful offering from the LA-based make up range, the {Inner Glow Crème Pigment} in ‘Eclipse’ looks scarily, well… scary but, the make up world is nothing if not open to new trends.

This bewitching hue has cast its spell… you can’t turn an internet corner without bumping into this spookily, Buffy-esque offering from the cool, (oc)cult brand. Pitch black in the pan, the sheer formula blends seamlessly for a shadow-y, grey-toned contour or a smouldering, smoky lip look. 

Surprisingly versatile, this might not be ‘the one’ for those who like their make up understated, but neither is this ‘out there’ hue too daunting – when blended with your fingertips, it melts into your skin to lend a wash of dewy pigment with an aubergine-y undertone. 

It’s needless to say we’re already obsessed. The perfect antidote to summer’s swathe of sorbet shades (not that we don’t love those too), we guarantee this tint will fast become a make up staple… Apply to eyelids, lips or cheeks for instant, effortless enhancement.
