When I got Rouge Bunny Rouge's Luminous Skin Wand, I wasn't quite sure what to do with it. It's designed to be a concealer for the face and undereye area. With light-diffusing particles, it's meant to brighten and perfect the skin. The color I received as a gift (Orionis) was too light for me and it just looked off with the rest of my makeup.
I don't like wasting gifts and I was determined to find a way to use this. So for a few months, it lived in a corner of my kit.
I'm not big on highlighting and it's something I skip most of the time. Something came over me and I decided to try highlighting the bridge of my nose. I didn't want anything shimmery, just something subtle. I decided that a concealer that was too light for me would do the trick. And that's when the Luminous Skin Wand came into the picture.
As a highlighter, Orionis is pure love! Its so subtle and that's the effect I want. Now I never skip this step when I apply makeup. Thank you, Rouge Bunny Rouge for making me a convert to highlighting.
To dispense the product, you'll have to click the bottom like a pen. I find that I need about two clicks to get enough product to highlight the bridge of my nose and my cheeks. That's fine by me - I'd rather have that than too much product on my hands.
The other end features a synthetic brush applicator. Since this is for personal use, I apply this on my face directly... the brush feels firm, not flimsy.
Luminous Skin Wand's formula is light, unlike the usual concealer. It feels more like a moisturizer and blends easily.
Orionis is what I swatched in this post. According to Rouge Bunny Rouge's website, it's a pink beige color with a touch of peach. I'd say that's pretty accurate and it would fit those white lighter skin tones. They have another shade called Alula which is a yellow-based orange and I think that would be suitable for medium skin tones.
I do want to try Alula in the future to see how this works as a concealer but for now, Orionis is the only highlighter I use on myself.
