[REVIEW] TonyMoly Luminous Goddess Aura Aurolighter aka Rainbow Highlighter

TonyMoly Luminous Goddess Aura Aurolighter aka Rainbow Highlighter Review:

I don’t think I need an explanation for this one. But I will give one anyway! We didn’t get many rainbow highlighters here in Korea when the trend came. From the mainstream brands we got this one, and one pastel version of it from Etude House. Well, I am one of those who loves unicorns and princess and glitter and fabulous stuff so, even though I don’t really wear highlighters, I had to grab one. Since the Etude House version was more pastel (or underwear color) I grabbed this one that had bright fabulousness dripping out of it.


Rainbow color highlighter sparkles in various brilliant colors depending on the angle of light.

I’m going to write this with all the fangirl-ism aside! Because we all know I squeal inside each time I open this. So I’ll just review this really really (really) describing the product to my best.

The package is pretty boring. I’m not complaining about the palette (?) itself, but about the paper box! They could have made it shiny or colorful or… not black. I read a lot, and I mean a lot, of reviews about this product and everyone always complains about how the lid should be transparent so you could see the wonder inside!

But I personally disagree. The actual palette, design wise, makes the product inside stand out because it’s fully black. Also, like this it has the advantage of having a mirror inside (as you can see in the first photo).

But (noooooo) the product spreads a little everywhere. I guess it’s not a very compactly pressed powder! It’s not unusual in highlighters though, since they are something to sit naturally on your skin rather than to convey a great amount of concentrated color. But a person like me will clean the edges of the box every time.

I don’t have a flat brush so this is the best I can do. I applied it with my finger for you to see the rainbow! And yes, no brush comes with the product, but in this case you can actually apply with your finger (as you will see later).

The colors look really pretty, and natural for something that looks like a character of Adventure Time. People with warmer skin tones, or yellow skin tones, might want to avoid the blue stripe.

The mint green is actually versatile and can work literally just as a light, but the blue one makes it look a little cold and in warm or yellow tones it can look mushy.

If you are a carrier of one of those skin tones then first try this product as it is. If you feel it makes your skin look weird then do as lots of Koreans do! With a spatula or knife carefully remove the color you dislike (in this case it would be the blue) and “repress” a normal highlighter color (usually beige or white) in the empty space.

Here you can see it blended with my finger. The powder is really silky and doesn’t dry the skin at all, which is why a finger application is possible. It’s good as an actual highlighter (not as a rainbow fantasy) since it makes my skin and veins look like they’re having a glam moment rather than a powder on top.

Here you can see each color individually. You can use them as an eyeshadow, or individual highlighter. For example, you have pink or red lips, you can just tap a bit of the pink shade on top.

The highlighter lasts just as long as your settling powder or makeup fixer lasts. Since I don’t wear either on most days, it lasts me depending on how many times I touch my face during the day. A good fixer will fix this just like it would fix any higher end brand.

I really appreciate the mirror since, as I said, I normally don’t apply fixers! And my makeup is always a point makeup, so on this case it would be a highlighter as a point type of makeup.

Overall? Good product. Not as inexpensive as I hoped it would be, but on discount it goes to good prices. I doubt I’ll finish this before the product leaves the stores, but I really like it and if I need a new one when this one is finishing I’ll try to get my hands on another one of these.

I’m lucky (well in this case anyway) that I’m a cool skin tone, otherwise the blue might have been a little too icy for my skin – but as I said, that can be fixed easily.
