If regular highlighters are bright, and shimmery, the anti-highlighter is the exact opposite. It’s black!

The Inner Glow Créme Pigment in Eclipse is by a U.S. beauty brand Rituel de Fille.

You may be wondering, “Why would someone want to put a black shade on the high points of their cheekbones?” Well, it doesn’t actually come off as a true black. When applied to the cheeks or cheekbones (This depends on your skin tone), it blends out into a beautiful plum shade that works out as a blush.Because of its consistency, it gives the cheeks a glow. Another fantastic thing about this product is that it’s multi-functional! You can also use it on the eyes AND lips.




The Inner Glow Créme Pigment in Eclipse retails at USD29 and is currently on pre-order and it will launch on 5th April on Rituel De Fille’s website.

If black highlighter is something you’re thinking of trying, Jeffree Star Cosmetics also has a black highlighter. Unlike Rituel De Fille’s black highlighter, Jeffree Star’s Onyx Skin Frost™ comes in a pressed powder form, and it’s shimmery.

Just like Rituel De Fille’s Eclipse, it can be used on the eyes, cheeks and lips as well (If you mix it with a mixing medium). This highlighter also retails at USD29 is available online.

Not how well such a shade would work on Asian skintones, but hey, at least if you’re feeling moody on a particular day, you know that there’s a product for it!
