When it comes to perfection which is natural, beautiful and enough on its own, the one name that comes to my mind is Troy Surratt. There is no product from Troy Surratt which I have not liked yet, every product – be it makeup or the makeup tools – they all work, not just for what they are created for but are versatile enough to be multi-purpose. Surratt Beauty products have been in my routine for a few years and I use them with the same enthusiasm which I had when I first tried them. The newest launches from Surratt Beauty are Torche Lumiere Highlighter and Inner Light Baton.
Surratt Beauty Torche Lumiere Highlighter is inspired by the twinkling jewels in the vitrines of the Place Vendome. This collection of highlighters, in 3 shades, gives a multi-faceted glow to the face. Surratt Beauty’s ‘Torche Lumière Highlighter’ creates the illusion of heightened, angular features and a naturally glowy complexion. It is a creamy stick formula that blends effortlessly into the skin giving a beautiful natural glow. I apply it on the high points of my face – along the cheekbones, brow bone, and sometimes on the bridge of my nose. Torche Lumiere is made with genuine diamond and gold dust. The twist-up stick ensures mess-free application and is convenient for travel.
The three shades are described below.
Rose Diamante – A sheer pink that’s packed with light-catching micro-pearls.
D’Or – It is a golden highlighter to give cheekbones a sun-kissed glow. This creamy formula is infused with light-reflecting micro-pearls to brighten and lift your facial features.
Diamante – It adds a shimmering glow to the face and body. It is infused with golden micro-pearls, this creamy formula seamlessly melts into skin and imparts a pretty, champagne hue.
Surratt Beauty Inner Light Baton clever dual-ended eye baton which is clarifying, redness-neutralizing waterline liner in three shades, with a corresponding shimmering powder to further brighten the inner-eye corners, brow bone, or lash line. Eliminating redness or purple tones along the waterline instantly makes the eyes look bigger and brighter. A sweep of the glimmering powder brings additional light-reflection to the entire eye area, creating a twinkly, starry-eyed effect.
It is rightly compared to whitening toothpaste, just that this one is for eyes. The fact is that the whiter the whites of your eyes look, the bigger and brighter your eyes look making you instantly appear more awake and alert. The addition of the shimmery powder further creates a starry-eyed effect. It can also be used for emphasizing the arch of the brow. The creamy pencil glides seamlessly along the waterline without irritation or discomfort and stays on throughout the day with minimal touchups. The soft sponge tip helps the extra-fine shimmery powder adhere perfectly to the skin, and brings light and radiance to your eye area. The Inner Light Baton is available in three shades described below.
Perlè: White + Scintillating Sparkle: Clarifies and flares the whites of the eyes
Effervesce: Peach + Champagne Sparkle: Eliminates blue or purplish tones along the waterline
Mousseux: Chamois + Rose Gold Sparkle: Neutralizes darkness and discoloration; perfect for deeper skin tones
Definitely staples in my routine, on the days I am in the mood for minimal makeup or the days I in the mood for a more glamorous look, these work in all situations and needs. The staying power is amazing, both for the Torche Lumiere and Inner Light Baton. These are on heavy rotation as is the Perfectionniste Concealer Palette I reviewed here.
