Beauty from the Earth’s Full Moon Rising

This color is very similar to BareMinerals' Soul. Full Moon Rising is just a touch warmer, though, and has better color payoff. It makes an excellent highlighter, and works well as an all-over color. It's a brighter white-yellow, so it contrasts nicely with a rich blue or a deep maroon, or a blackened emerald.

This was part of the limited edition Bite Me collection, and while we've seen Guilty Pleasures come back as a Color Of The Week at BFTE, this one hasn't shown up. BFTE has several lovely highlighter and white-neutral shades in its lineup, but this one has a luminosity that the others don't really seem to have. (They are lovely softer duochromes; or have brown or even blue undertones; and so have their own unique niche. But I haven't tried any of BFTE's whites or neutrals yet that match this one in terms of both color payoff, relative brightness, and warmth that doesn't veer too hard into ‘yellow'.)
