Spectral Shine Radiance Balms
* Relaunch Notice: In Dec 2021, Spectral Shine was reformulated to be easier to use, especially with fingers. In March 2022, we upgraded the packaging to be PCR compacts with full edge to edge mirrors for a much more luxurious feel.
Purpose: To add diffused, glitter free radiance across the face that is unlike any traditional highlighter on the market. Think finishing powder and highlighter hybrid in a cream to powder form. It takes away/mutes any kind of oiliness or dewiness, but leaves behind a soft focus radiance akin to softbox lighting.
Texture: A dry to touch cream to powder formula. It does not feel like an actual cream, and it will not melt or become creamy with the warmth of your finger. It will remain stiff & dry but creates a creamy look on the skin. Picks up and applies in incredibly thin layers
Tools: Pairs best with the Skybuff brush, that was designed specifically for this product
Inspired by light emanating phenomenons of the natural world, Spectral Shine is our long awaited, much requested radiance balm. This is not your traditional highlighter. This will not make you glow from space. No metallic glitter or sparkles here.
We used the finest pearl pigments in these dry to the touch creams, so that they don't reflect light off of the skin, but rather catch and hold light to it. What you get is the softest, diffused, and gentle veil of luminosity that translucently filters the skin. Because the pearl pigments are so fine, they do not have any sparkle or glittery quality to them - even in direct sunlight which often gives away when someone is wearing a highlighter.
The blend of waxes and hydrocarbons we used in this formula is somewhat like a hybrid of our cream shadows & blushes, where they lock in moisture into the skin, without being overly occlusive or uncomfortable.
Comes in a post consumer resin made compact with a mirror. Packaged in a paper box. Comes with 6g of product in each pan.

Brush Application: The most foolproof way to use the product is to almost treat it like a baked powder. A stippling or fluffier brush swirled around in the pan for 10-20 seconds with moderate pressure will pick up the perfect amount of product for diffused or prescise application on the face. The trick is to swirl more times than you think you need to.

Fingers: Gently swirl your finger into the pan to pick up product. It is easier to go back in for more afterwards vs. trying to pick up a lot at once. Do not try to scoop product out or it will break. It will not melt no matter how much you swirl. It will remain firm to the touch.
Troubleshooting: If you are having difficulty picking up product on your finger or brush, you can gently scratch the very top surface with the back of your nail or swirl your finger in the pan until a small indent appears in the top layer.
Shades from lightest to darkest:
Fresh Fog: the palest, pure white for the fairest of skin tones
Divine Daylight: please see the product's individual page for details. This was a limited edition turned permanent release in 2021

As the shades go from light to dark, they contain less and less whitening/opacifying pigments such as titanium dioxide, meaning that the shades have a transparent base so tan/deep/darker skin tones don't look ashy or chalky using their respective shades.
