Rituel De Fille [pronunciation: Ritu-elle d'Fee] is a makeup brand founded by 3 badass sisters. They are based in LA and describe their formulation approach as potion-making and are inspired by "the magical side of natural ingredients." Their products have quickly become favorites of top makeup artists and celebrities. 

Every cheek color, highlighter and eye shadow is ultra pigmented and is unique in color and formula. Finally, a brand that isn't remaking clones of products that already exist.

NARS & Too Cool For School Highlighter

MakeupShelby RodriguezComment

NARS Illuminator in Laguna -now replaced with NARS Liquid Bronzer (Left)

Although the NARS Illuminator is described as a liquid, I think it is slightly thicker than what you'd expect. This product is very blendable and pigmented. I think it works best as a bronzer or mixed with foundation for a dewy bronzed look. As always, my favorite way to apply this is with a beauty blender, especially if you are using it for subtle contouring.

NARS Illuminator in Copacabana (Middle)

This illuminator is the same formula as above. I typically use this after foundation and it applies well. I apply it on my cheekbones, inner corners of my eyes, brow bone and cupid's bow. I start by using my fingers then blend with a beauty blender.

Too Cool for School Dinoplatz Pearl Bay Invasion Highlighter in Pink Clam (right)

is not as thick as the NARS illuminator. I'd consider it more subtle than NARS. Because it's less pigmented, it's almost fool-proof. You cannot really apply it incorrectly. The formula contains olive oil, rosehip oil, peppermint oil, avocado oil, bamboo extract, cactus extract and argan oil to hydrate the skin.

F. Miller Hair Oil & MAKE Beauty Moonlight Primer

Hair, MakeupShelby RodriguezComment


This primer is unlike any primer I've used.  Right from the pump, it looks like a black/charcoal colored shimmery gel, then after massaging it into your skin, it becomes a clear gel and finally into a white cream. The cream dries colorless and matte. This primer controls shine and reduces the appearance of fine lines. It's silicone free and protects skin from pollution and HEV Light. Be prepared to spend a few seconds working the product into your skin and allow it to set before applying makeup over it.




This oil makes chemically treated hair look and feel healthy. It works best on dry or almost dry hair. Admittedly, I have used too much of this product multiple times. Use a tiny amount (a drop or two) and rub it into your palms then apply to the ends of your hair. It truly makes hair that resembles straw look shiny and healthy.

Note* The dropper is black but I accidentally swapped it for a white one when photographing this.
