luminosity that's flattering for all SKIN types 


Is it skincare or makeup?

Introducing our hydrating, peptide-rich serum infused with encapsulated illuminating pigments that reflect light and leave the skin looking luminous without appearing glittery.

This hybrid serum eliminates dryness often associated with powder highlighters, without the slip and makeup disruption linked to liquid highlighters. You can use it on bare skin, on top of makeup, or as a radiant base before applying makeup.

what are the skincare benefits?

Antioxidant peptide complex

Glycerin & vegetal polysaccharides

This formula is packed with a powerful antioxidant peptide complex that shields your skin from pollution and promotes radiance. With glycerin and polysaccharides, it deeply hydrates, leaving your skin plump. Lastly, with the infusion of triglycerides, it offers a luxurious touch of nutrition and suppleness.
The ultimate antioxidant, plumping, nutritional, luminous serum, all in one bottle!

what's with the micro-bubbles?

Apart from the satisfaction of popping these micro-bubbles (they're microplastic-free, by the way), they bring an extra layer of sensory delight while significantly enhancing the product's performance.

Typically, in liquid/oil formulas, mica tends to settle over time, requiring thickening agents to maintain suspension. This can make liquid illuminators feel heavy on the skin, disrupt makeup, and can often lead to crystallization. 

Here's where our revolutionary serum steps in. Thanks to our ingenious mica encapsulation within micro-bubbles, it not only prevents mica from settling but also keeps the formula lightweight, ensuring it won't interfere with your makeup, shift around, and effortlessly melts into your skin. These micro-bubbles are the secret behind delivering an unmatched product performance and experience.

Our revolutionary formula

We use a patented technology to encapsulate 3% translucent pigments within micro-bubbles, blending them seamlessly into a skincare base, resulting in a universally flattering shade. But that's not all – this formula blends seamlessly into your skin (or on your makeup), thanks to the peptide-rich skincare that provides instant hydration and helps visibly plump the skin.


  • 3% translucent pigments 
  • 97% skincare base
  • 50:50 synthetic mica, fair-trade mica
  • active peptide complex
  • vegetal polysaccharides  
  • sustainable source of well water - powered entirely by solar energy

Child labor-free mica

It deeply saddens us to learn about the troubling connection between some mica factories and issues like modern-day slavery and child labor. To ensure our products never contribute to such heartbreaking circumstances, we've taken a strong stance.

Our formula combines 50% synthetic mica with 50% certified child-labor-free mica. While synthetic mica comes at a cost that's over 2x higher than natural mica, we're unwavering in our commitment to ethical practices. This approach reflects our values and our mission to create a positive impact on the world. Although there's still a long road ahead to forge a fully ethical and sustainable beauty industry, we're proud to play our part in driving meaningful change.

what is balanced LUMINOSITY?

While traditional powder and liquid highlighters excel at achieving high-intensity illumination, they often emphasize natural characteristics that we might wish to diminish, such as lines, pores, and texture.

Enter balanced luminosity with NOVELTY N°1. By diffusing light uniformly across its beam, it takes on a gentler aspect. This results in a naturally even (buildable) highlight that softens the visibility of lines, pores, and texture, providing a flattering effect on real skin, especially mature skin.

Meticulously crafted using patented microfluidic technology, our signature blend of nourishing oils and pigments are encapsulated into micro-bubbles, ensuring a fresh release upon application, offering an invigorating sensorial experience like no other.

WHO IT'S FOR: Normal, dry, combination, and oily skin types.

TRANSLUCENT PIGMENTS: We've blended 50% synthetic mica with 50% fair-trade mica from ethical sources to craft a universally flattering shade that imparts a delicate, luminous glow.

PEPTIDE COMPLEX: Our biomimetic antioxidant peptide complex harnesses the power of Green Tea's EGCG, to help fight pollution from all sides - outdoors, indoors, and internally. Experience brighter, younger-looking skin with 360° protection. Say goodbye to pollution worries! 

POLYSACCHARIDES: Polysaccharides, natural compounds found in plants and animals (we use plant-based), are key players in preserving skin moisture balance, which directly impacts how our skin looks and feels. That's why we turn to the power of Unitamuron H-22. It's enriched with these special polysaccharides, carefully extracted from tamarind seeds using hot water to maintain their natural integrity. The result? Nourishing skincare that keeps your skin looking and feeling its best.

So soft and plump

It makes my skin look alive. The only thing I’m not a fan of is that it very shiny. Will definitely buy again though

Not for me

The product provides shine when applied and feels nice. It just doesn’t suit my needs. I’m not a big makeup user. This is more for complimenting makeup I think.

Love love love it!!

This is a product I didn’t realize I was missing. It leaves your skin glowing (yes there’s small shimmers) and at the end of the day after washing my face, skin is sooo soft!! I like to wear this under my cc cream. Skin stays hydrated and plump looking even after a restless night. You will notice a difference within the first use. Highly recommend!!
