RITUEL DE FILLE Inner Glow Creme Pigment in Delirium ::: Review & Swatches!!

Today, I am talking about Rituel De Fille's (RDF) Inner Glow Crème Pigment in Delirium. I have acquired a lot of RDF products over some time and I am trying to have my thoughts on each of them with individual posts!

I have already talked about their Color Nectar Pigment Balm in Bloodflower here.

RDF has a few different face products. I love their color nectar balms and I am fond of this Inner Glow Pigment formula too. This is what they have to say about their inner glow crème pigment products
"A spectrum of bold, stunningly versatile multi-use shades that can be worn on any part of the face. Apply to the cheeks, lips and eyes by blending out for a sheer wash, or build up to create bold color.

Inner Glow Crème Pigments also layer and blend to create new colors with our other products: combine them with one another, blend with Forbidden Lipsticks and Enchanted Lip Sheers, and lend depth and a glossed finish by layering over Ash and Ember Eye Soots. Each color comes encased in a starry black compact, inviting artistic experimentation with fingertips, sponges and brushes."

I have had this product for at least a year, so please be assure that I have loved and used this product very regularly. Let's try to share my thoughts!

Shade: Delirium is the burnt orange/coral shade of my dreams. Of course, it looks intense on the pan but it can sheered out or layered on! RDF describes this shade as follows: "This is the shade of fever dreams; a ripened nectarine with golden highlights in a sheer formulation. Part of Fleur Sauvage, a collection of colors inspired by lush overgrowth, the deadly allure of carnivorous plants, and the strange chromatic language whispered between flowers and pollinators." I don't know who writes these description for RDF but it makes complete sense you know! It is the shade of ripened nectarine with golden highlights! Additionally, I love that this color flatters my skin-tone all seasons throughout the year! I enjoy wearing it most during fall season! And winter too! And during summer this such a perfect shade for those golden hour burnt warm makeup looks! 😀  

Formula, Quality & Staying Power: So, the first thing I will say is that it is a little bit of thick crème meaning that you have to warm it up first before applying. If you have used their color nectar pigment balms you know that those are very light, jelly like formula. This inner glow pigment are much thicker that that. So if it is winter time, I will swirl it with my fingertips first, then apply it on the cheeks and then blend it out with a beauty blender. I love to mix it with my color nectar balms (I have Wasp & Bloodflower) for a blush-draping type of application. It actually works well with other brand's cream formula too! 

I have leftover acne scars and pores on my cheeks so I need to be careful with my blushes. And sometimes I use pore filling primer underneath, but I can easily wear it directly on top of foundation or on over bare, moisturized skin. I, do enjoy it using on the lips too for a monochromatic makeup look however I do that somewhat rarely. Not that it is not good as a tinted lip shade, but I just do not regularly use blush on my lips. 

I get very satisfying staying power from it, especially when I layer it with a with a very thin application of powder brush. I don't really wear makeup when I wear mask but when I am wear this for my weekend makeup play looks, I am mostly staying indoors and I can still see the blush on my cheeks at the end of the day. 

Price: This will cost you $29 for a total of 0.13 oz (3.8g) of product.   

Availability: This is available at the RDF website, Ulta Beauty, Cult Beauty and Credo

Packaging: It comes in the peculiar black packaging that RDF offers. And because all of them has the same style, if gets difficult to differentiate them. Especially if you have multiple compacts from them. Also, the clasp can break at times. I have had breakage in some of my other product with similar packaging. I think, this is the only complain I have with them, and I do think that they have room for improvement here.

Here are some looks I did with Delirium! You can see all the different variations I was able to get in terms of depth of the shade and application.

So, yes I love this blush. It was in my 2020 and 2021 Yearly Beauty Favorites and it will probably be in this years' favorite too! Have you tried any RDF product?
