Previously, I introduced the Rouge Bunny Rouge brand (see here) and today I’m looking at the line’s Seas of Illumination Highlighting Liquid in Sea of Tranquility (approximately $70 for 1 ounce, available for shipping to the U.S. from Zuneta.com). This liquid highlighter is a refined version that gives a smooth glow without any sparkle or heavy metallics.
Sea of Tranquility has a decided pink cast, which shows up with a fair amount of drama on my pale warm skintone. Those will cooler skin tones will love this color–the pink is believable, healthy and beautiful. If you like Benefit Highbeam or Nars Liquid Illuminator in Copacabana (reviewed here), you will find that Sea of Tranquility is a slightly pinker, more refined version of either. The texture of Rouge Bunny Rouge’s offering is more natural and less thick compared to High Beam. Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Sea of Tranquility is less sparkly compared with Nars Copacabana. One might expect this from the different price points–Benefit’s High Beam is $24 for .45 ounces, and Nars Copacabana is $29 for 1.2 ounces.
The Black Panties makeup blog has done this comparison between Rouge Bunny Rouge Sea of Tranquility and Giorgio Armani’s Fluid Sheer #7.
Bottom line: You don’t need all three, but if I had to choose one I’d go with Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Sea of Tranquility because the texture is the most refined. I find that wearing a color that stands out on my skin tone is really apparent, and softer textures look more natural. (Thanks to Liz for letting me borrow her Benefit High Beam and Nars Copacabana for the comparison.)
