Seas of Illumination Highlighting Liquid is one of my most recent purchases, and I must say that it does not disappoint. In fact, it delights! I chose Sea of Tranquility because it has the "palest milky opalescence, with super fine pink, white and gold pearls." According to Rouge Bunny Rouge, it creates a luminous effect that "enlivens tired looking skin and all skin tones." On my cool-toned skin it most definitely enlivens my coloring while remaining a cooler color. I have difficulty with highlighters that pull too warm- as they tend to wash out my cool coloring- so this one is perfect.
The magical tale continues: At sunset in the Enchanted Garden, you can fleetingly glimpse the mermaids dancing in the gently lapping waves of the Grand Moon Seas. Evening mists rise and tenderly caress them, lingering languorously on their bodies to gift their skin with uncommon youth and beauty.
According to Rouge Bunny Rouge, "This multipurpose water-based fluid blends easily with moisturiser, or with foundation, to customise the look - to yours alone. Create an inside-out illumination effect and blend it to a thin, refined wash of pearls. Light fragrance of Cucumber with a touch of Peach Flower will add to your application pleasure. A quartet of shades with Melissa extract to soothe, and Vitamin E to guard against ageing. The highlighting liquid can be used alone or over moisturiser and as a highlighter, over foundation, too."

1) For an all-over ethereal glow, I add about 1/2 a pump to my hand and mix it with my primer, foundation or tinted moisturizer. I then apply it directly to my face either with my fingers or with a foundation brush. This gives you a gorgeous and magical all-over glow.
2) I apply it directly to parts of my face and body that I want to highlight: Cheek bones, brow bones, over the top of my upper lip (starting at the Cupid's bow and working outward), collar bones, and chest. This creates a lovely luminous glow that is simply stunning.
I must also add that it smells heavenly- I can't quite identify the smell, but it is so pleasant. To me it smells like a treatment product rather than a heavily perfumed finishing product, but once applied to the skin the scent immediately fades.
